Millions of us receive email from Barack Obama all the time, throughout this campaign. Sure, these are political advertisements and fundraising efforts. But also included in Barack’s email is an explanation of the political situation, his plans, his ideas, and his understanding of the people’s sentiments, from the grassroots on up.

These are special messages that I use to educate readers on my blogsite. I do not spread propaganda (as if America knows the differences between words that stoke their feelings and words that inform, educate, and provoke critical thinking.)

The shameless lynch mob atmosphere of Sarah Palin’s rallies has frightened us about what forces she would unleash upon America if John McCain were to become president. Everybody must be apprehensive and on pins and needles about the this breeding of hatred at rallies, citing code words and catch phrases that incite vile reactions, never before infused into a campaign. Not even Adolph Hitler employed such tactics of hate-mongering.

Kill him? I beg your pardon, Madam VP wannabe.


John McCain and Sarah Palin have stopped talking about the issues, and have instead launched a strategy relying on fear-mongering, racial divisions, and hate. The result is McCain/Palin supporters saying "kill him!" "terrorist!" "traitor," and more, at rallies, with the McCain campaign playing dumb in response. It's outrageous and it must stop.

Together, we can show that Americans of all races won't stand for this.

I've signed onto ColorofChange's open-letter calling out McCain and Palin. will publish it this week, and as they've shown in the past, when enough of us stand together, we can force the mainstream media to amplify our message.

Will you join us?

Write Sarah Palin, herself, and say: STOP IT!

  1. Well sure, Eddie. You know, I bet people will be so scared that they will stand back and applaud when Obama takes the guns away from them thar dangerous folks who don't like Obama. It's just a fact that anybody who doesn't think the government can solve all our problems, cure all our ills, provide medical care for life, and guarantee a job for life is just plain dangerous.

    Hey, wait a minute.

    Didn't the government have a program that gave everyone free medical care, free housing, and a job for life before?

    Why yes, they did.

    They called it slavery.

    You should be ashamed of yourself for writing such racist drivel.
