Publicly Supporting McCain Is Like Lighting a Stink Bomb

If you want to oppose Obama, some expect you to do so very quietly:

The sign went up Sunday evening, bold black letters against the stark white background of the marquee at the Colony South Hotel & Conference Center in Clinton: "Country First. McCain/Palin."
By daybreak, pandemonium had broken loose all across heavily Democratic Prince George's County [Maryland]. Many local supporters of Democrat Barack Obama, jolted by the message as they headed down Branch Avenue on their Monday morning commutes, grabbed cellphones and BlackBerrys to notify friends. Operators of neighborhood e-mail group lists cried foul to their memberships. The NAACP logged calls. Community leaders demanded boycotts of the hotel…

Sputters "community activist" Arthur Turner:

People I have talked to look at the sign as a slap in the face. They feel it was blatant disrespect.

University of Maryland professor Ron Walters concurs, fuming that expressing support for McCain in "an area that is strongly African American was like putting a stink bomb in the middle of the living room."

By that logic, expressing support for Obama is like putting a stink bomb in the living room of America as a whole. After all, the USA is 82% Caucasian; Prince George's County is only 66% black.

But I'm forgetting: racism only cuts one way — the Left's way.

An Obamunist spots a McCain supporter.

On a tip from NoObamunist.

The 1970s remake was the only good version of the Invasion of the Body Snatchers. The ending was nearly as creepy as having Big Brother Obama as President [[[[shudder]]]]

More two-faced Black biggotry rearing it's ugly head. Neither McLame or Palin has ever said anything negative about Black folks, at least not in public. There has never been a put-down or other verbal dig, and yet one constantly gets bombarded by this crap from "Black spokesmen". Which is terribly crass when you consider that when polled the greatest majority of black folks support what in essence are conservative values. I don't think I'll ever finally understand that.

The black community has been brainwashed to believe that Democrats are their saviors. Of course its in the Democrats best interest to keep blacks poor and uncomfortable since blacks who are successful tend to move to the right politically; and thats the last thing the Democratic Party wants. Its like in the book 1984, the objective of THE PARTY is to "keep society on the brink of starvation".

I was raised just north of Prince George's county and believe me, these leftard NAACP antics are typical. Just imagine how tough it's been on Michael Steele, ex-governor VP for Maryland. A successful black man, conservative in his views and an outspoken republican (still is, I heard him speak the other night in Timonium, Md). He's taken loads of unbelievable crap off of commucrats such as those in Prince George's for years. Everyone in my household this morning just laughed it off. These backward Prince George's knuckleheads will never change (for the better that is).

How DARE we think we have the right to support a viewpoint that is directly contradictory to The Messiah's? How DARE we?

Typical of the "downtrodden poor" that Liberals "champion".

Reminds me of the story about the attempted propiganda by American communists before the USSR fell: they sent "the motherland" a film about America's gettos to show how terrible life was for Americans. The "happy Soviet workers" were shocked to learn that Poor people in the USA...

I remember that! A homeless guy and his dog fell asleep next to a pod and it combined their genes into a dog with the homeless guys head. Kind of like THE FLY. It was almost as creepy as Obama-Biden.
