Signs Of Collective Republican Obama Related Mental Illness Found In New Poll

obama-feet-deskA new Reuters/IPSOS poll unwittingly revealed the depths of the collective Republican mental illness by revealing that Republicans view President Obama as the most imminent threat to America.

Reuters reported:

The poll showed 34 percent of Republicans ranked Obama as an imminent threat, ahead of Putin (25 percent), who has been accused of aggression in the Ukraine, and Assad (23 percent). Western governments have alleged that Assad used chlorine gas and barrel bombs on his own citizens.

….

Twenty-seven percent of Republicans saw the Democratic Party as an imminent threat to the United States, and 22 percent of Democrats deemed Republicans to be an imminent threat.

The poll is a direct reflection of the political polarization that currently exists in the United States. The poll is also an outstanding measure of the damage that conservative media has done to the political consensus that used to exist. Conservative media is a fear based industry. It is no surprise that Republicans believe that President Obama is the most immediate threat to the country. The Obama threat message has been delivered hourly on conservative websites, talk radio, and Fox News.

Spreading fear of the black president has become its own industry. A lot of people earn a great deal of money by scaring Republicans. The reality is that Republicans are terrified of a president who has signed the law that lowered the cost of their health care, saved the economy from a depression, and cut their taxes. If a Republican president accomplished these tasks, conservatives would be calling for him to added to Mount Rushmore, but the Republican fear of Obama is never about what the President has done.

Republicans spread terror over what Obama might do. Obama may come for your guns. Obama is creating death panels. Obama is telling you what you can and can’t do. Obama is out to steal the very liberty that makes you an American. These are the kinds of messages that conservative traffics in every single day. Because Republicans believe this stuff, they elect members of their own party who reflect their fear and hatred of the President.

Fear of the President has become a collective mental disorder, and it is the reason very little gets done in Washington.

  1. It is the only way Republicans can stay in power. Their policies are a proven failure, so you have to lie about the other side and frighten your base with nonsense.

  2. The Right is playing on the fear that, if “they” are no longer kept down, “they” will treat “us” the way “we” have been treating “them”.

  3. Such a sad Swan Song to the Republican mindset- live your whole existence in fear of the Big Bad Man Who Won’t Go Away…if only they could just get over themselves…they could live a rich life…but who am I fooling? Republicans/Conservatives would sooner slit their own wrists than admit to being wrong.

  4. Yeah, interesting how we’re finally cottoning to the idea that there’s a spectrum of brain dysfunction, and that you can be walking around and still be sociopathic, psychopathic, or both.

    Fear of falling. As social beings, we seem to have inherited the good ol’ reptilian pecking order, with an absolutely insane level of fear of being the chicken at the bottom.

    Corey Robin describes how this fear percolates into power structures right on down to the workshop floor and family life. Or, why your fat white male boss is such a prick,slaps his wife, and votes Republican.

    A brain awash in fear is a pitiable spectacle – and dangerous – as we are currently witnessing bigtime. Too easy to manipulate with lies that promise affirmation and power as rationality gets sidelined. There’s a reason why religious fanatics align with conservative politics.

  5. Yes! Like I keep telling the Obama haters I know and run into. You hate the IMAGE of a man that the Conservative Reich Wing has MANUFACTURED! NOT the Real man. You hate him because you want to have someone to blame all your woes on and the Conservatives have pointed their fingers at Obama and Liberals. Josef Goebbels did the same thing with the Jews as did Henry Ford here in America, Hitler mentioned Henry Ford in Mien Kampf with honor.

  6. The sky is always falling over at Fox so called news , and it’s always Obamas fault. 24/7 scare tactics keeping their listeners unaware of any real facts.
    I’ve changed the minds of many foxnewsers just by posting the real story on my facebook page over and over. Eventually they see the folly of Obama derangement syndrome.
    Satirical pages from Tea Party Cat , Andy Horowitz and Blue Dems help to show the ridiculessness (sp) of right wing “facts” and educated viewers eventually admit that Fox is fudging the “facts”… Use online forums to raise awareness, you have a massive audience ….

  7. I refer to that iteration of the president as “Strawbama”, particularly when those right-wing ideologues claim to “know” something about him that they don’t even try to support with credible evidence.

  8. grawson, that’s just it the republican party IS a THING! a “thing” is un-describable because of it’s inherent alien foreboding presence and malevolent intent. So a “thing” is just what the Reich Wing is.

  9. Well….One year and 8 months they will calm down and take their chill pills, because Obama will be out of office. But, then, they will go batchit crazy again when the white WOMAN will be in office to scare the pants off all the limp wristed Congressmen, Senators, pundits, talk show hosts, and other assorted pshycos. Yes, Hillary will be the brunt of their nasty illness. And they WILL find ways to make her life un-easy while in office. I hope she can take it, like Obama.

  10. Conservative Media is indeed a lucrative market; much more so than the alleged Liberal media the GOP likes to blame on the reality they hate to hear.

    I have never seen a president be treated with such complete contempt & disrespect as Obama has had to endure since day 1. The GOP can’t stand the fact that Obama has been an outstanding president & has done a much better job than they or any of their ilk could have done esp. in the circumstances Obama inherited when he took office after the GOP destroyed the country’s economy.

    The GOP believes that Obama is somehow a lesser man/person because he’s black and they can’t stand the fact that he’s not only done a good job but has dared to act presidential.

    The conservative media continues to entice anger, fear & hysteria in their audience of people who are petrified that they’ll soon be the minority as they’re terrified they could very well be treated the same despicable way they’ve always treated blacks & other minorities.

  11. Remember that bat-shit-crazy woman who looked like she just woke up telling McCain that Obama was a muslim and she was in fear?

  12. I have been saying all along…you ain’t seen nothing yet. Just wait until they unleash their hatred and sexism toward Hillary and all women. The violence we are seeing now on college campuses and in domestic situations is just a drop in the bucket. I fully expect another holocaust against women like that of the middle ages. There is nothing insecure, immature men fear more than a strong, independent woman. I have experienced enough harassment, put downs, disrespect, etc. My entire life. We fought this battle for our rights in the 60’s and I’m too tired to go through this b.s. again. After all, rush has already set the stage claiming all the problems in this country started when women got the vote.

  13. collective stupidity; these people are victims of the greatest propagandizing in the history of the world ; the extremely wealthy morally challenged decided years ago that they would change the thinking of Americans to one of fear and hatred ; it began with FOX and now the billionaire oligarchists have recruited other billionaires to buy up papers and tv stations and cable companies and they now totally control all the means of communication and they are using it to propagandize the world into hateful fearful people; they then are spending billions on electing these idiots to do their bidding in all levels of government. Years and years of patient propagandizing.

  14. It started long before Fox (this collective hate-hysteria). I remember when white bigoted southern folk made the most slanderous comments about JFK. Back then most if not all southern states were democrats, bigotry knows no party lines.

  15. After all the incredible sh*t he has taken, he remains the adult in the room. I can’t help but wonder what the rest of the world thinks when they see how our first black president is treated. Look around RWNJ’s the whole world is not white.

  16. Somehow ended up here after visiting a right wing site. How refreshing to not read an endless litany of misspellings and grotesqueries of grammar as can be found in the right wing comments!

  17. Judy J, how right you are. It remains to be seen how the GOP will react should Hillary Clinton become the first female president; will they hate a female president more than a black president & which of the two will the GOP consider more beneath them.

  18. Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group? Theres lots of people that I believe would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Thanks fkdfdkakedcbddga

  19. Ask me, and I will show you a sick lot !

    “Spreading fear of the black president has become its own industry. A lot of people earn a great deal of money by scaring Republicans.

  20. I always notice that there is one “protest” vote in the “no-way” box whenever this kind of a story surfaces. And, the “protest-no-way” voter (keep in mind, they have a right, get a choice and vote) never replies with a comments on the topic or gives any kind of posit as to why the give a “no-way” vote to other commenters.

    I can only assume they did not read the article much past the headlines, or, they have no real thoughts, ideas, or answers.
    Are they very passive-aggressive cowards who stay in the shadows with nothing to offer?

    Maybe there is a way to set the software so that if you check the “no way” box, you must post/we see a screen name or it doesn’t register your check.

  21. Clearly therapy would not help thee unhinged haters. Part of the problem is they are uneducated and ignorant.

  22. President Obama is scheduled to travel to Kenya, I believe in July.

    I saw a clip (could have been on this web site or maybe Twitter)of the dumba$$ on FOX state that President Obama has been to Kenya 3 times – enter the birthers. However, as POTUS, President Obama has been to sub-Sahara African 3 times but NEVER to Kenya.

    Of course, FOX will never correct the error so expect to hear this lie repeated over and over.

  23. It’s easy to frighten people to vote for you when you have millions of willingly ignorant reactionaries out there eager to listen.

  24. Charlie, Exatamundo!..that’s because we are eduma-cated and ain’t skeered by thangs like them there fax an history an such.

  25. Did you see what the “no-way” dipsters did? They pooped TWICE (2 no-ways) on my comment lawn…

    Very cute, dipsters, however, still very cowardly, passive-aggressive behavior revealing more public (or should I say pubic?) persona than ever necessary. Bores with no boundaries-they’re everywhere.

  26. And repubs have made sure the gerrymandered districts favor them. If only the left leaners understood how the districts being drawn works. It’s based on the census and who is in charge when it comes time to drawn the new lines. Some states have taken the power away from who is in charge. A committee draws the lines so it is fair.

  27. I’ve been seeing a lot of this crap on my Google+ account.

    The Republicans are out of their freaken minds and are letting fear and intolerance take over.

  28. The seven benghazi investigations which have
    pissed away over 14 million tax dollars only to
    prove absolutely nothing show that Hillary fear
    exists in biblical proportions at GOP/TP. Now Trey”Ellen”Gowdy thinks he can be their super
    sleuth email hero. L. Graham, Gowdy and the
    deranged angry bitch at Santorum’s speech all
    come outta the same SC gene pool.[WINK]

  29. One correction: You say, “The Obama threat message has been delivered hourly on conservative websites, talk radio, and Fox News.”
    Actually, it’s delivered several times every MINUTE, 24/7.
    For many years, their message was was also piped into our military barracks around the world for hours every single day.
    [I hope that has stopped, but don’t know for sure.]
    Propaganda, pure and simple–and evil.
