Tea Partiers and the United States of White Christian America

Tea Baggers Just Wanna Have Fun
It is no surprise that the angry white conservative movement a.k.a. the tea partiers has come to life since the election of Barack Obama, because they were fine with George W. Bush’s many violations, illegal wars, suspension of habeas corpus, etc. What lay at the heart of conservative opposition is their loss of control – and a black man in the White House.

So Bush wipes his ass with the Constitution for eight years. He treats it not as a binding document but as a rough set of guidelines – to be ignored or not as he chooses – even refers to it as “a goddamn piece of paper”! But we do not see any of the following:

States rights movements
Tea Parties
Oath Keepers
Talk of impeachment

And in complete contravention of fact, it is liberals – Obama, not Bush – who are now accused of treating the Constitution like a “living document.” I suppose there is something in that, since at least under Obama the Constitution is alive, whereas for Bush it was a dead letter – as inconvenient as any other fact.

From all this there is only one conclusion we can draw: that despite the narrative we are now being expected to swallow, conservatives are not standing on a set of eternal and unchanging principles. No, they are hypocritically opposing our constitutionally elected government because they don’t control it.

Conservative outrage has nothing to do with the narrative’s gospel. If it did, they would have formed Oath Keepers (2009) during the Bush administration. We would have seen the Tea Party (2009) begin during the Bush administration; we would have heard cries for Bush’s impeachment (2009) and the states rights’ movement (2009) would have been in full swing. But they were fine with Bush’s many violations, illegal wars, suspension of habeas corpus, etc. What lay at the heart of conservative opposition is their loss of control – and a black man in the White House.

Nossir. The events of the 2008 elections brought them an America they had not signed up for.
How did they respond? By picking up their toys and going home. But they insist they’re not racist as they sing “Barack the Magic Negro” en route to their storm trooper-style hate fests.

What is truly at the heart of the narrative?

White Christian privilege is a precious thing to many. They’ve had it since the founding, after all. And things can get pretty entrenched in a couple of centuries. And shouldn’t they have had cause for optimism by 2008?

Look at the progress they have made: in 1954 they got “one nation under God” added to the pledge of allegiance; in 1956 they managed to get our national motto changed from E Pluribus Unum (Out of Many, One), a completely accurate (and secular) motto chosen by our Founding Fathers, to “In God we Trust” – a motto which our Founders could have chosen – but significantly, did not.
They’ve even re-written the history books to show that the United States was founded as a Christian nation and that the 13th century was the “true” Age of Reason. Only conservative white Christians are “real” Americans, according to the narrative they have established. Anyone who opposed their president opposed God.

Under the Bush Administration, they finally had things set up exactly like they wanted them. Back to the 13th century we went; we even had our own crusade in Iraq. Let the good times roll.
Though these changes from a secular orientation (per the Constitution) were not solidified until the conservative hysteria of 1950s, the narrative insists that they have always been part of our Nation’s identity – as a White Christian Nation: sort of a KKK writ large.

A place of White Christian Privilege, almost a nature preserve, but one that is artificially stocked and which stands at odds with the reality world around it – and in many cases, with history. Their fanaticism is in direct and inverse proportion to the growing threat (an increasingly diverse population in terms of ethnicity and religion) to their privileged position.

The racism inherent in the narrative is real and it is deeply entrenched; the narrative is stock full of ethnophobia, homophobia, and religious intolerance. Is it any wonder that the prospect of a crusade against “godless” Islam got them salivating? They could even dream of a little ethnocide. What good old boy won’t sign up for that?
And to give them credit, the good old boys down south make no pretence. They admit what it’s about. You’ll find the rhetoric at Tea Parties as well.

It’s reality check time: At least when the south seceded they had the intellectual honesty to admit what it was about: they didn’t want their slaves taken away and they didn’t think African Americans were real people, and neither, really, were immigrants. Heinous reasoning yes, but we don’t see that kind of honesty from today’s secessionists. It isn’t real events that concern them but the products of their fevered imaginings – the old line used when Clinton ran was used when Obama ran – “he is gonna take your guns away and give them to the niggers.”

And they seem to have convinced themselves that this is true. Though Obama has not made any move against their guns (just as Clinton didn’t) states are busy easing gun laws. Just last month, the New York Times reports, “the Indiana legislature passed bills that block private employers from forbidding workers to keep firearms in their vehicles on company property.”
But contrary to the narrative, Obama has signed bills in the past year that allow guns to be carried not only in national parks and but in luggage on Amtrak trains! But these are inconvenient facts; they interfere with the narrative! And the narrative insists that Obama’s administration is going to take away your guns – a fear that resonates with “real” Americans.

After all, Obama is not one of them – he’s not white, and he’s either not a real Christian or not the right type of Christian (again, in violation of the narrative, Obama has kept Bush’s Religious Right-friendly Faith Based Initiative in place but this, too, is ignored).
And so in the rush to enact legislation to make it possible for people to murder each other in volumes not seen since the Wild West, the states play into the narrative of the big bad government vs. the honest, hard-working “real American” citizen, even though Obama has not taken away any rights.

Bush’s list of Constitutional violations is staggering. The First Amendment, the Fourth Amendment, the Fifth Amendment, the Sixth Amendment, the Eighth Amendment, and the Fourteenth Amendment, there are only 27 Amendments. By my count, Bush violated a staggering 22% of them.

But where was – where is – the outrage? We hear some admission that Conservatives strayed from their “core values” during the
Bush Administration but this is lip service. Bush is no less a hero to conservatives today than he was before Obama took office.
To the contrary, though he has not gone far enough, Obama has eased some of the more egregious outrages of the Bush Administration – outrages none of these current groups complained about when they were enacted by Bush, but for which Obama is now being blamed.

But then Bush was one of them: an anti-intellectual good old boy – a conservative white Christian – a “real” American.

  1. We need to stop appeasing these folks. They’re not going to meet anyone half way and no matter what we do, they’re going to kick up a huge fuss over nothing. They’re like 2 year olds with abandonment issues, afraid of the Good Old Days of White Privilege leaving them forever.

    They don’t realize that mommy and daddy already left the building, and that, in fact, it was the policies of the Republicans which caused mommy and daddy to leave forever.

    When the Rebiblicans wanted to use the “brown” people as new slaves for their corporate masters, they all but opened the borders and looked the other way. Years later, now they’re upset that someone who crossed illegally and then worked for the Rebiblican corporate master as a slave for five years might want to become a citizen.

    It’s the same bs as the issue of slavery, just a new twist.

    Oh, irony.

  2. @srjones, you’ve made many valid points, however, there are good, well-meaning people on the right and far right, though their politics do them a disservice, which we are now seeing more than ever, Kentucky immediately coming to mind with Senator Bunning holding up the extension of unemployment benefits. No matter how ignorant these tea baggers are or how belligerent they seem, we can disagree in a respectful manner, but continue to forge ahead with our mission. I say treat these folks at worst, like ignorant children, which is with firmness, but also consideration.

  3. To say that the Tea Party is a racist movement is a 90% correct statement. After watching countless interviews with the “Real Americans” of the Tea Parties demonstrate that they have little to no understanding of the issues they support/protest shows us that the movement is hollow. The Tea Party has attracted a large amount of Americans with racist fears who were taught that racism is bad. Instead of admitting to being racist, they project their racism onto the evil black president. In their minds, the black president is the evil racist and they are the righteous white minority.

  4. There were many who disliked Bush(see 30% approval rating on leaving office).

    The difference is that Bush was the devil we knew. Obama is the devil we didn’t know but we are learning rapidly.

    Putting the government in charge of so many areas of life that were previously in the hands of the people or local governments is scary. See health care, big banks, AIG, GM, Chrysler, cap and trade, etc. Especially given the federal government’s track record: USPS $2 billion deficit, Social Security and Medicare now cash negative. Trillion dollar plus deficits for the foreseeable future.

    Obama also has continued in full force most of the Bush war on terror policies and the democrats just reauthorized the abominable Patriot Act for another year.

    Where is the hope, where is the change?

  5. Well Ed, considering that Medicare is socialized medicine (which you are soooooooooooooooooo against), then why did you take until Obama was in office to voice your opinions?

  6. DID YOU REGISTER TO VOTE”?

    Alan Keyes (below) states Obama is a Radical Communist and will destroy America……Well, Obama is doing just that.

    Tired of Obama bringing Muslims in to The Pentagon and Home Land Security?

    Tired of Obama Anti-White American and Racist behavior?………….see below:

    Obama or Attorney General Eric Holder DID NOT prosecute The Black Panthers for breaking Voting Laws.

    Obama gave ACORN, a Census Contract before they were investigated for wrong doings.

    April, 2010: Obama call for young Black, Latino, Women voters. Obama wants to write off White Voters.

    Well it is up to White Christian America to turn it around!

    Campaign for White Christian America and here is how you do it:

    Get every Family Member, Relatives, Friends, Acquaintances, Club Members, Church Members, everyone you know who is legally eligible to Register to Vote for the 2010 Elections………. (SORRY NO ACORN MEMBERS OR OTHER CHEATERS PLEASE)…………….Then VOTE OUT these Anti-White Christians Racists!

    Take their Power away! White America still out numbers the others……..(If “Obama can ask the young, Black, Latino, Women voters you to vote for him”, We can ask White Christians Americans to Vote………

    If need be, take these unregistered White Christian People to Register to Vote, then pick them up on elections day when you are on your way to Vote……Vote these BUMS out or lose America!

    Are tired of America being ruined by Illegal Immigrants, Homosexual Politicians and all the other evil creeps? Want to get off you hands and do something about it, this is something you can do to help. Please pass the word on!

  7. Better get a grip, Tony Caputo. By 2050 white people will be a minority in this country. Change happens. It’s futile to try to stop it. There are far too many of us white folks who “get it” and don’t want to go back to the dark ages.

    You mention Alan Keyes??? He is a moron who has proven he cannot win any sort of election. He is an advocate of religious tyranny. This country was founded by people trying to escape this very thing. Go ahead and form your militias and tea parties, and make your last ditch effort to hold the rest of us hostage, but it ain’t going to happen.

    By the way, since the passage of TANF under the Clinton administration, no one can be on “welfare” for more than 4 years during their lifetime, so we don’t have any 50 year career bums on welfare.

  8. @Tony Caputo, don’t forget the Pollocks!

    Once upon a time we could use them as the butt of jokes, but lately they’ve gotten all uppity. I stand with you in your brave quest to return the bible belt to it’s once former glory as a place where people visited briefly, shook their heads in disbelief, then returned to the coasts.

    Nowadays some of ‘the gays’ are living in the midwest and the south. Curses!

    I’m eager to hear what you think we should about all those Dago bridge-and-tunnel thugs?

    Oh, I’m sorry…is Caputo an Italian name?

  9. @Tony Caputo, you forgot to mention the Pollocks! Once upon a time our brave ancestors could mock these people unabashedly, but now they demand respect.

    I stand with your brave movement to return the bible belt back to it’s former glory: A place where people from the coasts visited, searched in vain for decent coffee, a bookshop or a person with a 12th grade reading level, then headed back in despair to their infernal liberal dens. Gays should only stay for the duration of the filming of the Home Makeover Episode.

    Tony – is Caputo as Italian name? And if so…would that be northern or southern?

  10. TIRED OF?

    Not Racist, Not Violent. Just No Longer Silent!!!

    RACISTS POLITICIANS?
    CORRUPT POLITICIANS?
    LYING POLITICIANS?
    INCOMPETENT POLITICIANS?

    White Christian America versus Everybody Else.

    VOTE ONLY FOR WHITE CHRISTIAN POLITICIANS AND VOTE ALL THE CREEPS OUT IN 2010!..

    Christian Conservatives joining together to take back America for God

    ps: Think this is Racist or Anti-Semitic? No more racists that Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Jackson, The NAACP or the rest of the Black Politicians.
    Think it is Anti-Semitic? No more than the Jews trying to take Jesus Christ out of America….Don’t believe me? Read down…….

    The Jewish grinch who stole Christmas
    By Burt Prelutsky

    Posted: December 17, 2004 –

    © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com

    I never thought I’d live to see the day that Christmas would become a dirty word. You think it hasn’t? Then why is it that people are being prevented from saying it in polite society for fear it will offend?

    “But no-one would say anything publicly about him for fear of the Jews.”

    John 7:13

    Schools are being forced to replace “Christmas vacation” with “winter break” in their printed schedules. At Macy’s, the word is “verboten” even though they’ve made untold millions of dollars from their sympathetic portrayal in the Christmas classic, “Miracle on 34th Street.” Carols, even instrumental versions, are banned in certain places. A major postal delivery service has not only made their drivers doff their Santa caps, but ordered them not to decorate their trucks with Christmas wreaths.

    How is it, one well might ask, that in a Christian nation this is happening? And in case you find that designation objectionable, would you deny that India is a Hindu country, that Pakistan is Muslim, that Poland is Catholic? That doesn’t mean those nations are theocracies. But when the overwhelming majority of a country’s population is of one religion, and roughly 90 percent of Americans happen to be one sort of Christian or another, only a damn fool would deny the obvious.

    Although it seems a long time ago, it really wasn’t, that people who came here from other places made every attempt to fit in. Assimilation wasn’t a threat to anyone – it was what the Statue of Liberty represented. E pluribus unum, one out of many, was our motto. The world’s melting pot was our nickname. It didn’t mean that any group of people had to check their customs, culture or cuisine, at the door. It did mean that they, and especially their children, learned English, and that they learned to live and let live.

    That has changed, you may have noticed. And I blame my fellow Jews. When it comes to pushing the multicultural, anti-Christian agenda, you find Jewish judges, Jewish journalists, and the American Civil Liberties Union, at the forefront.

    Being Jewish, I should report, Christmas was never celebrated by my family. But what was there not to like about the holiday? To begin with, it provided a welcome two-week break from school. The decorated trees were nice, the lights were beautiful, “It’s a Wonderful Life” was a great movie, and some of the best Christmas songs were even written by Jews.

    But the dirty little secret in America is that anti-Semitism is no longer a problem in society – it’s been replaced by a rampant anti-Christianity. For example, the hatred spewed toward George W. Bush has far less to do with his policies than it does with his religion. The Jews voice no concern when a Bill Clinton or a John Kerry makes a big production out of showing up at black Baptist churches or posing with Rev. Jesse Jackson because they understand that’s just politics. They only object to politicians attending church for religious reasons.

    My fellow Jews, who often have the survival of Israel heading the list of their concerns when it comes to electing a president, only gave 26 percent of their vote to Bush, even though he is clearly the most pro-Israel president we’ve ever had in the Oval Office.

    It is the ACLU, which is overwhelmingly Jewish in terms of membership and funding, that is leading the attack against Christianity in America. It is they who have conned far too many people into believing that the phrase “separation of church and state” actually exists somewhere in the Constitution.

    You may have noticed, though, that the ACLU is highly selective when it comes to religious intolerance. The same group of self-righteous shysters who, at the drop of a “Merry Christmas” will slap you with an injunction, will fight for the right of an American Indian to ingest peyote and a devout Islamic woman to be veiled on her driver’s license.

    I happen to despise bullies and bigots. I hate them when they represent the majority, but no less when, like Jews in America, they represent an infinitesimal minority. I am getting the idea that too many Jews won’t be happy until they pull off their own version of the Spanish Inquisition, forcing Christians to either deny their faith and convert to agnosticism or suffer the consequences.

    I should point out that many of these people abhor Judaism every bit as much as they do Christianity. They’re the ones who behave as if atheism were a calling. They’re the nutcakes who go berserk if anyone even says, “In God we trust” or mentions that the Declaration of Independence refers to a Creator with a capital “C.” By this time, I’m only surprised that they haven’t begun a campaign to do away with Sunday as a day of rest. After all, it’s only for religious reasons – Christian reasons – that Sunday, and not Tuesday or Wednesday, is so designated.

    This is a Christian nation, my friends. And all of us are fortunate it is one, and that so many Americans have seen fit to live up to the highest precepts of their religion. Speaking as a member of a minority group – and one of the smaller ones at that – I say it behooves those of us who don’t accept Jesus Christ as our savior to show some gratitude to those who do, and to start respecting the values and traditions of the overwhelming majority of our fellow citizens, just as we keep insisting that they respect ours.

  11. The Tea Partiers are a bunch of people who are afraid of inevitable change in this country. They whine about freedoms being taken away, yet no one has interfered with their freedom to constantly make fools of themselves with the rallies at which they continue to do just that. The only common theme I can decipher is that they are rabidly anti-Obama. The signs depicting him as a witch doctor, for example, are about nothing but racism. The proof of the pudding is that they seem to have been asleep at the switch when GW Bush was treating this country like crap, and verbally disrespecting the Constitution as a “piece of paper.”

    One of the beauties of living in this country is that American citizens are of all races and of different religious faiths. While the Founding Fathers could never have visualized the multi-racial, tech-savvy superpower this country has become, their principle of separation of church and state has stood the test of time. That principle is even more relevant today, as politicians on the far right are trying to blur that line. Religion, which at its best provides a moral compass, is being hijacked by people who want to force their regressive views on the rest of us. These same politicians have been effective in inducing many everyday people to vote against their own bests interests, in the deluded belief that attempts to level the playing field for all citizens is
    “socialism” or “communism.” And those are the people who should either be sent packing from Congress or should never be able to gain a seat of power in the first place.

  12. A great copy and paste piece of garbage from the old days of the GOP talking points. Obama not saluting the flag? LOL that was debunked a lifetime ago!

    Majority being one religion does not make the country that majority type of country. The US has many religions and no one should set one above the other. The rights that one religion enjoys should be enjoyed by all of them.

    As far as your claims that you are prevented from saying Merry xmas in public, that is hilarious.

    If this is a xtian country, then lets look at the abnormally high divorce rate, the crime in the country, the wars precipitated by a “christian” president and the subsequent actions of that president to torture, run millions from their homes and spread mayhem around the world. Look at the greed in Wall Street, the banking industrys and in the company that do everything they can to screw you. Lets look a the people who refuse to help their neighbors under the guise of personal responsibility.

    If thats a christian country, I don’t want any part of it. Too many people didnt get the memo

    Do yourself a favor and stop trying to stuff your abhorrent brand of religion down peoples throats. We might mistake you for the taliban. And BTW Adolf, the jews are not convincing anyone of anything. The further this religion you tout so highly stays away from our government, the better off we are.

    Glenn Beck: Black Panther — Kill crackers and their babies
    Audio Available:

    July 7, 2010 – 14:33 ET

    GLENN: Well, it is a good thing that we’re not pursuing the black panther case. It’s a good thing that — because these guys that were standing there at the voting booth in Pennsylvania, they were just, they were just trying to help crackers out. That’s all they were trying to do. I don’t —

    PAT: Really lovely, really nice guys.

    GLENN: They were good guys.

    PAT: Good guys.

    GLENN: Good guys. They were just trying to help a cracker out and, of course, they have the baton there but I’m sure that, you know —

    PAT: It’s a baton of love.

    GLENN: It is a baton of love. Now, here’s some audio of one of the guys that was there with the crackers of love.

    VOICE: I hate white people, all of them. Every last iota of a cracker, I hate him.

    GLENN: Oh, boy.

    VOICE: We didn’t come out here to play this game. There’s too much serious business going on in the black community to be out here sliding through South Street with white dirty cracker whore on our arms. And we call ourselves black men with African garb on. What the hell is wrong with you, black man? You had a (unintelligible) with a white girl on your damn arm. You want freedom? You are going to have to kill some crackers. You might have to kill some of their babies.

    PAT: Wow.

    GLENN: All right.

    PAT: Kill some of their babies? That’s not good.

    STU: Let’s not be hasty. Let’s think about what he is saying here.

    GLENN: Let’s think about what he’s saying here.

    PAT: That’s taken out of contest.

    STU: Yes.

    PAT: It was only like 30 seconds.

    STU: He’s got some points he’s making.

    PAT: Yes.

    GLENN: First of all, I always — now see, when somebody would ever call me a cracker, I always took that as a term of endearment.

    PAT: Yeah. I think it is.

    GLENN: Yeah.

    PAT: I think it is.

    GLENN: So all right. So you want to kill some of those cracker babies.

    STU: Right. And if you think about that, does that lead to more freedom? Can we have that discussion in America? Is it —

    GLENN: Well, I think so. I think killing cracker babies would —

    STU: It may lead to more pre —

    GLENN: May I just say, may I just say?

    PAT: It would lead to less cracker babies.

    STU: Yeah. It would lead from freedom —

    PAT: And less crackers.

    STU: Freedom from cracker babies which I believe is in the Constitution.

    GLENN: May I just point out? Killing cracker babies sounds like a bad idea but when I say —

    PAT: Well, to some.

    GLENN: When I say, hey, let’s go to Cracker Barrel, everybody’s into it.

    STU: Right. That’s a really good point.

    GLENN: So —

    PAT: They have really good pancakes.

    GLENN: They have really good everything.

    STU: The hashbrowns seriously.

    PAT: Oh, man, I love those. Why did you have to bring that up? Why?

    GLENN: Seriously we could sit here and talk about Cracker Barrel for a while and I’ll be totally cool with it. Their chicken fried anything is delicious.

    PAT: Really good.

    GLENN: Ah. Anyway we were talking about killing cracker babies.

    PAT: Yeah.

    GLENN: Could you play the audio again because I don’t think again ‑‑

    PAT: Okay.

    GLENN: I don’t think there was any reason at all for the justice department to pursue the messengers of love that are the Black Panthers.

    VOICE: I hate white people.

    GLENN: Oh, boy.

    VOICE: All of them.

    GLENN: Uh‑oh.

    VOICE: Every last iota of a cracker, I hate him.

    GLENN: Hold on just a second.

    STU: (Laughing). So awesome.

    PAT: Every last iota of a cracker.

    GLENN: I hate ’em.

    PAT: You know.

    GLENN: That’s a lot of crackers he hates.

    STU: A lot of crackers. Every part of a cracker.

    GLENN: Now, some people might call this racism.

    PAT: No.

    GLENN: Because he hates all white crackers. Does he hate Graham crackers? I don’t know.

    PAT: Ritz crackers.

    GLENN: Ritz crackers, I don’t know.

    STU: Saltines we do know they’re white.

    GLENN: Saltines are white. Ritz crackers, I guess they would be Asian?

    PAT: They’re a tannish sort of thing going on.

    GLENN: Would that be Asian?

    PAT: I don’t know.

    GLENN: Would that be a Native American? I don’t know. Graham crackers? Who knows. But saltines, them crackers, he hates every iota of them.

    STU: Every iota.

    GLENN: Let’s play that again because that’s just good stuff.

    VOICE: I hate white people.

    GLENN: He does.

    VOICE: All of them.

    GLENN: All of them.

    VOICE: Every last iota of a cracker, I hate him.

    GLENN: Oh, boy. Can you stop for — can you just stop for a second?

    STU: (Laughing).

    GLENN: I’ve heard this kind of language before.

    STU: (Laughing).

    GLENN: I heard this language before the Sixties… it didn’t end well. I think we all have to watch our language.

    I wonder if Nancy is going to give a speech today about the watching of our cracker language. Of course not.

    So I’m not sure if it is officially racism because I’m not sure what racism is anymore, quite honestly. I just don’t, I don’t know. I don’t know. Because I thought being in the KKK was a really bad thing.

    PAT: No. Standing with a sign that you want less government spending, that’s racism.

    GLENN: That’s racism?

    PAT: That’s hatred.

    GLENN: All right.

    PAT: That’s dangerous.

    GLENN: Well, I know that being in the KKK can be just a youthful indiscretion.

    PAT: Yeah.

    GLENN: Even when you’re 47.

    PAT: Yes.

    STU: Fleeting, a fleeting.

    GLENN: Fleeting. I’m sorry, fleeting. Thank you, Bill Clinton, for pointing that out, that Robert Byrd, a fleeting association with the KKK even at 47 when he’s filibustering the Civil Rights Act. No, seriously.

    STU: He was 51 at that point, wasn’t he?

    GLENN: I think he was 47.

    STU: 47?

    GLENN: Yeah.

    PAT: He was 47.

    GLENN: 47, I mean, that’s entirely ‑‑ 51.

    STU: That would be ridiculous.

    GLENN: That would be ridiculous. But 47? That’s fleeting. That’s just a youthful indiscretion.

    So I’m not sure, but I would think if you would come out and say I hate all crack… now see? See, this is how they get us every time. This is what they mean. This is what they mean. And you know who, when I say “They,” you know who “They” are. This is how they get me every time. May I just — Stu, did we verify that he didn’t mean actual crackers?

    STU: Well, he did say white people. In the clip.

    GLENN: Play it again. Let’s play it again.

    VOICE: I hate white people.

    GLENN: Okay. All right.

    STU: Fairly clear there.

    PAT: I hate white people, all white people.

    GLENN: Now, I don’t want to go too far here. He may hate white people and crackers.

    STU: Right, yes. We’re not —

    GLENN: It may be two separate things.

    STU: We cannot assume that that’s a slur of white people when he says cracker.

    PAT: Have you seen the Ritz minis? Those could be the cracker babies he’s talking about. Could those be?

    GLENN: Could be.

    PAT: The cracker babies?

    STU: And when he says kill them, he might mean eat them.

    GLENN: Just eat them.

    STU: I’ll kill a bag of those.

    PAT: I’ll kill a whole box of those cracker babies. Is that possible?

    STU: Very possible.

  14. Cathy,

    You are forgetting one,the 2050 turnaround is a PREDICTION,same for the global warming hokiedoke,A PREDICTION.
    Anyone can run around saying anything they so desire.

  15. It is funny the people whose fathers fought to protect America and the world now endorse and vote for the evil people who want to eliminate the ones who continually vote for the evil people.

  16. all there of them? while everything they say is wrong stupid and what ever else you call it, what can be prosecuted there? If he prosecutes them he has to prosecute you for being against it.

    The US government cannot stop your right to having ideas or speaking of them. You do know that a person such as yourself who says “I hate black people” cannot be prosecuted right?

    Strawman. Off topic.

  17. Christian Conservatives joining together to take back America for God!

    EVER WONDER WHO IS TRYING TO TAKE “JESUS CHRIST” OUT OF AMERICA?

    WELL, I CAN TELL YOU IT IS “NOT” THE CHRISTIANS!

    do Christians have a right to know if a politicians is an Atheist?

    READ THE BELOW EDITORIAL BY A JEWISH JOURNALISTS ON THIS SUBJECT………NO ONE CAN CALL HIM ANTI-SEMITIC!

    IF THIS IS WHAT THESE JEWS ARE GOING TO DO WITH THEIR POLITICAL AND JUDICIAL POWER, THEN THEY MUST BE “VOTED OUT OF POWER” in 2010!

    WE ALL HAVE JEWISH FRIENDS OR ACQUIESCES SO IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, JUST REMEMBER THose ARE WORDS liberals MADE UP, THESE AREN’T:

    Jesus Christ quotes

    The Jewish grinch who stole Christmas
    By Burt Prelutsky

    Posted: December 17, 2004 – 1:00 a.m. Eastern

    I never thought I’d live to see the day that Christmas would become a dirty word. You think it hasn’t? Then why is it that people are being prevented from saying it in polite society for fear it will offend?

    “But no-one would say anything publicly about him for fear of the Jews.”

    John 7:13

    Schools are being forced to replace “Christmas vacation” with “winter break” in their printed schedules. At Macy’s, the word is “verboten” even though they’ve made untold millions of dollars from their sympathetic portrayal in the Christmas classic, “Miracle on 34th Street.” Carols, even instrumental versions, are banned in certain places. A major postal delivery service has not only made their drivers doff their Santa caps, but ordered them not to decorate their trucks with Christmas wreaths.

    How is it, one well might ask, that in a Christian nation this is happening? And in case you find that designation objectionable, would you deny that India is a Hindu country, that Pakistan is Muslim, that Poland is Catholic? That doesn’t mean those nations are theocracies. But when the overwhelming majority of a country’s population is of one religion, and roughly 90 percent of Americans happen to be one sort of Christian or another, only a damn fool would deny the obvious.

    Although it seems a long time ago, it really wasn’t, that people who came here from other places made every attempt to fit in. Assimilation wasn’t a threat to anyone – it was what the Statue of Liberty represented. E pluribus unum, one out of many, was our motto. The world’s melting pot was our nickname. It didn’t mean that any group of people had to check their customs, culture or cuisine, at the door. It did mean that they, and especially their children, learned English, and that they learned to live and let live.

    That has changed, you may have noticed. And I blame my fellow Jews. When it comes to pushing the multicultural, anti-Christian agenda, you find Jewish judges, Jewish journalists, and the American Civil Liberties Union, at the forefront.

    Being Jewish, I should report, Christmas was never celebrated by my family. But what was there not to like about the holiday? To begin with, it provided a welcome two-week break from school. The decorated trees were nice, the lights were beautiful, “It’s a Wonderful Life” was a great movie, and some of the best Christmas songs were even written by Jews.

    But the dirty little secret in America is that anti-Semitism is no longer a problem in society – it’s been replaced by a rampant anti-Christianity. For example, the hatred spewed toward George W. Bush has far less to do with his policies than it does with his religion. The Jews voice no concern when a Bill Clinton or a John Kerry makes a big production out of showing up at black Baptist churches or posing with Rev. Jesse Jackson because they understand that’s just politics. They only object to politicians attending church for religious reasons.

    My fellow Jews, who often have the survival of Israel heading the list of their concerns when it comes to electing a president, only gave 26 percent of their vote to Bush, even though he is clearly the most pro-Israel president we’ve ever had in the Oval Office.

    It is the ACLU, which is overwhelmingly Jewish in terms of membership and funding, that is leading the attack against Christianity in America. It is they who have conned far too many people into believing that the phrase “separation of church and state” actually exists somewhere in the Constitution.

    You may have noticed, though, that the ACLU is highly selective when it comes to religious intolerance. The same group of self-righteous shysters who, at the drop of a “Merry Christmas” will slap you with an injunction, will fight for the right of an American Indian to ingest peyote and a devout Islamic woman to be veiled on her driver’s license.

    I happen to despise bullies and bigots. I hate them when they represent the majority, but no less when, like Jews in America, they represent an infinitesimal minority. I am getting the idea that too many Jews won’t be happy until they pull off their own version of the Spanish Inquisition, forcing Christians to either deny their faith and convert to agnosticism or suffer the consequences.

    I should point out that many of these people abhor Judaism every bit as much as they do Christianity. They’re the ones who behave as if atheism were a calling. They’re the nutcakes who go berserk if anyone even says, “In God we trust” or mentions that the Declaration of Independence refers to a Creator with a capital “C.” By this time, I’m only surprised that they haven’t begun a campaign to do away with Sunday as a day of rest. After all, it’s only for religious reasons – Christian reasons – that Sunday, and not Tuesday or Wednesday, is so designated.

    This is a Christian nation, my friends. And all of us are fortunate it is one, and that so many Americans have seen fit to live up to the highest precepts of their religion. Speaking as a member of a minority group – and one of the smaller ones at that – I say it behooves those of us who don’t accept Jesus Christ as our savior to show some gratitude to those who do, and to start respecting the values and traditions of the overwhelming majority of our fellow citizens, just as we keep insisting that they respect ours.

    Merry Christmas.
