John McCain has finally decided to address the issue of his foaming-at-the-mouth supporters.
Not surprisingly, his campaign’s statement was completely inappropriate.
He not only decided to condone the words of his supporters, but also managed to blame Obama at the same time.
Brian Rogers, a McCain spokesman released the following:
Barack Obama’s attacks on Americans who support John McCain reveal far more about him than they do about John McCain. It is clear that Barack Obama just doesn’t understand regular people and the issues they care about. He dismisses hardworking middle class Americans as clingling to guns and religion, while at the same time attacking average Americans at McCain rallies who are angry at Washington, Wall Street and the status quo.
Where the hell do I start with this?
How is it that a bunch of wild cowboy McCain supporters calling for the decapitation of Senator Obama says more about Obama than it does about McCain?
The only intelligent answer would be to simply say that the first line of Rogers’ statement makes absolutely no sense.
McCain should take a careful look at the caliber of supporter he is attracting.
Honestly, this is like saying that the KKK’s support of John McCain is Obama’s fault, because the KKK doesn’t like black people.
Rogers claims Senator Obama dismisses all regular Americans as clinging to guns and religion, and then attacks those same people at McCain rallies for expressing their outrage at Washington.
That’s all that statement is.
Barack Obama has never negatively stereotyped middle America.
Now he may have said a thing or two about certain conservative Americans who so desperately cling to the three G’s… Guns, Gays and God… but…
… They deserved it.
They do cling to guns and religion… and they are conservative…
… And now they are absolutely crazy, nutjob psychos on top of it all.
Side note: Who did the NRA just endorse?
It sure as hell wasn’t Obama.
Those folks don’t represent the Middle Class, they represent an all-white-scary-as-hell faction within this country… a faction that those of us who really are normal people would be well served to stay the hell away from.
These simple “hardworking middle class Americans” that Mr. Rogers wants us to feel so sorry for are the very same people who are calling for Barack Obama to be assassinated and decapitated.
Who’s the fucking radical in this scenario?
I guess it’s considered acceptable to call for the death of your candidate’s opponent… just as long as the opponent in question isn’t white, that is.
Mr. Rogers, if you believe the hate-fueled nonsense you are spewing, I’d say it is indeed a beautiful day in the neighborhood- your neighborhood, anyway.
For those of us who reside on planet earth, however, I say either stand up and fight- or run for your lives-
Cuz this shit just got ugly.
