Rally of the Buzzwords

From here on in, expect any smear campaign that McCain launches towards Obama to be taken at face value, but instead of those of us who are sane, practical and logical, we know to do our homework on any candidate, no matter who they are, and make an informed decision based on what that candidate can do for this country and for us. However, like many of us are all too aware of, there are some people out there who instead of doing their research on a candidate or thinking for more than 1.3 seconds about the legitimacy of what kind of bullshit “their” candidate is putting out into the media, there are way too many people who will soak up McCain’s bogus ads, go to see him speak and then throw nothing but buzzwords out, believing wholeheartedly that the bullshit their brains soaked up like a sponge from the oh so “reliable” sources like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Fox News and John McCain and Sarah Palin themselves are completely right, not giving any of these accusations a second thought and accepting them as truth.

So for those who believe that the video in the last post was a fluke or that “not all” McCain supporters think or act like those who made asses of themselves in that video, here is another from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I am ashamed to share a state with these people.

A big thanks goes out to all of the aforementioned sane, practical and logical folks who were also at that rally trying to spread the truth about McCain/Palin such as the fact that Palin made women in Alaska pay for their own rape kits. The replies of their supporters? Well, they believe that a woman who is raped should pay for their own rape kit and not only that, but they should pay double, die, or be killed.

Nice, huh?

This election is ugly, yes, but a woman is never at fault for being raped and the people who believe that a woman is at fault are the same people who believe that she was asking for it, deserved it, should be killed because of it or they are the people who believe rape doesn’t exist, don’t teach their children about sexual assault at a young age, or maybe they are also the people who are abusers themselves.

While it is obvious that the McCain camp is “turning a page” and doing very little but launching attacks on Obama, what the fuck ever happened to humanity? As a feminist, activist, and advocate for rape and sexual assault, myself and many other people out there are speaking out about abuse and trauma and if you ever thought “Hey, this is about human decency, who doesn’t care about something that should come naturally to being a human?” These are obviously the people we are up against.

If there is one issue that is screaming at the top of its lungs that we need to reform, it’s education. There are so many people in this country who need to be educated and you just saw a video of several.

I don't have much knowledge over the politic but still i love to read. Anyway thanks for sharing this in your post with us.

  2. I'm conservative and *I'm* voting for Obama–Bush has just been a disaster the last 8 years and if you want more of what you've been getting (Bush) then just vote for McCain because that's EXACTLY what you'll get. I personally was rooting for Ron Paul, but that turned out to be as unrealistic as most people expected, oh well. I'm VERY seriously considering getting citizenship in another country and leaving the U.S. (I DEFINITELY will if McCain gets elected), we've just really killed our reputation with the rest of the world with Bush in charge…

  3. Hops says:

    Get ready to vote in like 3 weeks! You're lucky to live in a state where it actually matters!

  4. I am very conservative too and I will vote Mc Cain and Palin for sure.

  5. Well I been a democratic supporter for years. I dont think I will change my mind

  6. The buzzword of the day should be “enlightenment”.

  7. The buzzword of the day should be “enlightenment”.

  8. Tech News says:

    Fox News and John McCain and Sarah Palin themselves are completely right, not giving any of these accusations a second thought and accepting them as truth.

  9. Owtscharka says:

    I like Obama more then McCain.

  10. I hope the candidates just focus on what they can do instead of screaming personal attacks at each other. Educate the people and I am sure they will be able to vote wisely.

  11. Grumble says:

    It has come down to buzzwords, but to be honest I've hardly ever seen politics to be much more than that!

  12. Florida mesothelioma lawyers to choose from. There are a lot Florida mesothelioma lawyers
    who have a great deal of experience in handling mesothelioma lawsuits. Those seeking for
    a Florida mesothelioma lawyer should look for one that will provide facts and figures
    from previously handled cases.

  13. I'll back again for sure, thanks for great article :D
