Riled up by Glenn 'McCarthy' Beck and Joe 'You Liar' Wilson, tens of thousands of batshit insane wingnuts descended on the national mall in Washington today to flaunt their ignorance. Just in case there was any doubt whatsoever about what this event was actually about, I ventured into the crowd a few hours ago to document the ignorance. Pictures and commentary below.
Warning: If you are allergic to extreme ignorance, do not scroll down.
As an atheist, I can only assume that if there were a God she would not bless a racist thug like Glenn Beck.
I don't know about you, but I always try to get as much of my political advice as possible from people who can't spell 'politicians' or 'diapers'. Brilliant!
I'm still trying to figure out how making insurance more affordable to tens of millions of Americans is supposed to kill people. I must have missed that part. $100 says most of these people like the death penalty and supported the Iraq war until the day Obama was elected.
This lady is on double duty! By "cap" Congress I assume she is using the popular slang for "cap" which urban dictionary defines as "to shoot someone with a handgun turned to the side." So gangster! By trading Obama back to Kenya, the implication is that he lived he lived there at one point. This is, of course, false. Threatening Congress and showing your ignorance... way to go, lady!
Speaking of Kenya, some folks in the crowd thought President Obama would be better off running for President there, since um, you know, he was born there or something. I got into a bit of a back and forth with a younger gentleman who was standing with this guy. After about 30 seconds he asked: "Why do you love to suck Obama's cock so much?" I don't think my answer pleased him very much. His eyes flashed with anger as he shouted "Get the fuck out of here." I took his advice.
I'm not sure I understand this one. I guess the implication is that Obama is somehow similar to the President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, who has been accused of holding racist attitudes toward white people. I wonder if Glenn Beck has anything to do with this. The part about a trillion in every wallet is really not clear to me. Any ideas what this is about?
Update: Commenters smarter than I have pointed out that Zimbabwe suffered massive inflation under Mugabe. This probably has something to do with it.
I hate to end on such a sober note, but this scares the shit out of me. It is truly disturbing to think about what goes through the mind of someone who would come to Washington with a sign like this. We can only hope that comprehensive health care reform will allow this man to buy the medication he so desperately needs.
