A new video posted to Youtube shows McCain/Palin supporters spewing racism and hate at peaceful pro-Obama demonstrators outside a McCain/Palin rally Oct. 27 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania.
One older gentleman early in the video shouts “Bomb Obama!” at the videographer and Obama supporters. Asked by the videographer what that means, the man says, “Get rid of him,” then gestures indicating this means assassinating Obama.
A younger man holding a “Democrats for McCain” sign says, when asked why he supports McCain, “I’d never vote for a black man.”
Another young man declares, “I do not want a black man running my country.”
Among women at the rally, one says she is against Obama because “his associations and his judgment are not American,” repeating the Obama-as-foreigner meme. Another older gentleman also repeats this idea, insisting that Obama was born in Kenya, not the United States, and asking for his birth certificate (ample proof exists that Obama was born in the US state of Hawaii).
Other rallygoers shout various combinations of “Barack Hussein Obama” in addition to the usual charges that Obama is a “terrorist” and a “baby killer.”
If we needed more proof that racism and hate are indeed running rampant in the grassroots Republican ranks, this is it. The video is credited to the Pennsylvania progressive organization Keystone Progress.
