Creeps and Liars.......Act I

Link over here and read it.

Money quote: "And expect a ton of those nasty spam type emails attacking Obama to flood your in-boxes that are usually meant for Hillary."

Guess what I received in my inbox this morning? Yep, an email about Obama.

I first thought it was a parody from The Onion or perhaps even Landover Baptist. Unfortunately, it is a serious email.

The email was pretty bad. The body of the message contained a lot of stuff like this:

Are you aware that Obama's middle name is Mohammed? Strip away his nice looks, the big smile and smooth talk and what do you get? Certainly a racist, as plainly defined by the stated position of his church! And possibly a covert worshiper of the Muslim faith, even today. This guy desires to rule over America while his loyalty is totally vested in a Black Africa!
I think that the Rush Limbaugh types would much rather see Hillary Clinton end up the Democrat nominee, she is easier to bash and her negatives are oh so high. But a lot of people out there must really hate Obama. It's either that or racism is not dead in American.

To those who would even think to send out emails like this: Remove me, un-suscribe me, delete me, take me off your email list, just don't send me anymore junk like this. No, wait a minute, keep me on that list, it lets me know what you are up to.

This is just beginning of the desperate junk right-wingers will try to pull to stop what is obviously aman of great intellect and passion for this country....I wonder what it would be like to have intellect back in the White House.....God forbid.

Busplunge,

I agree that is a terrible e-mail. I am disgusted by it. I posted a while back about the Senator Obama Muslim myth.

I know I don't want to get this kind of e-mail about Senator Obama or any politician.

Both parties have their wacko warriors that will do anything to try to win. I have received a ton of similar e-mail about Republicans from wackos on the left along with these kinds of e-mail about Democrats from wackos on the right. I hate when so called conservatives do it- it makes me look bad.

I think there are a lot of closet racists in America. It's hateful and ugly, but I'm not a bit surprised. I'm not talking about skinhead KKK extremists. I'm talking about people you see every day and wouldn't suspect. I had someone at work make a really disturbing comment, out loud as if it was acceptable, about a man from India the other day. This person referred to the man and his wife as "dot-heads" and asked me if I thought they were sending their money to Al Qaeda. This person did not even seem to realize how bigoted and ignorant his/her comments were. This person was easy to spot, but I also think there are closet racists who are a lot more savvy, who will say they don't mind a non-white president, but would never vote for a non-white person at the polls.

It's fairly sickening.

Well said, Larry. The fringes of both sides are sending out their e-mails of hate. (For example, I recently saw a "Christian Taliban" e-mail related to Mike Huckabee.)

I don't know how someone can honestly think these e-mails are going to sway anyone.

And I agree with SG...there are a ton of closet racists out there who would never vote for a minority candidate. I found a lot of former friends of mine had those views when debates of Colin Powell running for President came up and when I said I'd vote for him over Bush I'd get all kinds of sideways looks and harsh criticism.
