We had some people “not helping” here in downtown Port Orchard, WA yesterday. They had the “Obama as Hitler” poster and were gathering signatures to have him impeached. WTF? I could think of nothing coherent to say to them. *sigh*

Neo-cons do an amazing job of making asses out of themselves. Dems are guilty of stupidity sometimes when attacking conservatives, but the neo-cons take it to a whole other, Sarah Palin-esque, ridiculous level. I’m with Tracy…many times, I don’t even know what to say, or where to start.

Tracy, you’re just as well off not having engaged these folks. Certain of these groups have attorneys available who will find a way to sue you for saying anything at all to them.

Not helping is right. I feel very sad for the state of the U.S., as a Canadian. You can do a lot better than that. Start with education (reform).

That’s disgusting but I really love people who go after “neo-cons” for this. As if before Obama there was none of this. I could take 5 minutes and find twice as many disgusting images from anti-Bush protesters. And before you respond please note this is not a pro-Bush reply. This kind of stuff is happening on both sides.

I was approached by someone with the “Obama Hitler” picture and just said,”I’m sorry, but I don’t agree with you, and I’m using my 1st Amendment right to let you know.” I was then accused of being a liberal socialist and I just replied,”I would feel the same if it were a picture of George W. Bush or any president.” and then I excerised my right to walk away.

If you look hard enough you can find crazies on either side of the aisle.

You know what isn’t helping? Each side presenting that fringe as if it’s representative of the mainstream of the other side.

Just sayin’

    You’re right man. But there’s one difference: The crazies on the left usually (not always) don’t quote, use, or mention God. Big difference in my opinion.

      That’s not been my experience, to be honest. Then again, I live in the Bible Belt where everyone right, left, and other has the Jesus culture.

        The keyword in mpt’s response was “crazies”

        Nobody’s ever going to own up to be the crazies. We are all very, very reasonable people.

Every time these people compare Obama to Hitler, it’s insulting to Holocaust survivors. I wonder if they realize that.

    Claire, I was just going to say that, I’ve said it before in other contexts such as when Mr. Beck has made such references. Genocide of any/and all forms ethnic, religious and societal ex. the mentally ill is not happening in the US, I am sorry to these individuals, but it’s not, no matter how you spin it. As such to equate Obama, the health care bill or any act of legislative or judicial reform with it is an insult to all those who were affected by the acts of Hitler

Sadly, I’m not surprised by this. I’ve seen a lot of this grotesque rhetoric on bumper stickers all over my hometown. It is really exasperating!! And truly, NOTHING you can say makes any difference to these people. They are brainwashed and living in fear. :(

    I agree. And living in fear is not a good way to live. I feel sorry for them more than anything.

The last one isn’t even grammatically correct. Twice the word “to” is used when it should be “too”. Wrong. All around wrong.

    I think that points to yshekster’s point – the state of education in this country is abysmal (I say this as a former public school teacher).

    But it’s easier to manipulate people who know less.

I am politically conservative and am not a fan of Obama, but this is too much. I agree with Matthew about not using God or Christian principles to spread hate.

Plus, whoever made the last sign with Obama as the Joker needs a grammar lesson–particularly the difference between “to” and “too.”

These people confuse me. So abortion is wrong and terrible(which it is) but sending people to a nonsense war is okay? It seems like they’ll let Presidents slide do pretty much anything(or in George Bushes case do nothing) as long as they are pro life.

1. The left wing wackos did the same thing, the issue here is too many folks are too “tuned up” politically and need to get a life and not invest so much into the man made system that is politics.

2. I don’t think it matters whether you are a wacko in the name of a “god” or “gods” or the name of a philosopher or ideology.

Tim McVeigh was an atheist and killed Americans and the 9.11.01 were radical Muslims, in the end their evil spoke for itself. The same as anyone who does violence in the name of Christ, which Jesus himself condemned in the gospel of John.
