McCain supporters defend Islam

posted by Aziz Poonawalla

At a McCain rally in northern Virginia, a man was handing out bumper stickers equating Obama with Communism and radical Islam, and preaching about the dangers of Islam. McCain supporters, including a conservative Christian and several muslims, confront the bigot:

Note that a McCain campaign official also makes an appearance and reiterates that McCain’s supporters hail from all religions and that this man’s message is in no way representative of John McCain.

The man and his sidekick eventually give up and leave, to cheers and applause by the McCain supporters present. I have to say, that the people in this video standing up for McCain and against bigotry are real Americans in every sense of the word.

Of course this was northern Virginia, which according to Governor Palin’s own spokesperson, is “not the real Virginia” where true pro-America Americans reside. As much as the McCain campaign disgusts me at times, it’s important to remember and emphasize that McCain’s supporters are as genuine Americans as anyone else, apart from the few bad apples who spoil the image. There’s a lot less that divides us than the domestic radicals, or the campaign spin doctors, would have us believe.
