    Muslim blood

    Posted by: Andoni

    For better or worse I get to interact with a lot of different types of people. The latest line I've heard from two different people in two different parts of the country is that they cannot vote for Senator Barack Obama because he has "Muslim blood" in him.

    These same people used to claim that Obama was Muslim, but I guess Obama's campaign to convince people of his Christianity has worked. They now will acknowledge that Obama may be Christian, but they still won't vote him because he has Muslim blood in him. Obama's father was Muslim.

    I guess bigotry remains bigotry. The reasons to attempt to rationalize it just change.

      There are so many other reasons not to vote for Obama, such as he is a ignorant novice on defense, that such nonsense as this is completely unnecessary. Who cares if his pop was a Muslim? Islam isn't a race but a religion one accepts or not. Besides, Obama says he is a Christian so that should be good enough on this score.

      God Bless Ronald Reagan.

      He was the first divorced man to become President. Because of him it is no longer considered a "legit issue" whether or not a man is divorced.

      Good news for John McCain.

      Now if Obama takes office, perhaps people's bloodline will not be a "legit issue".

      I'm sorry, their BLOODLINE....how fu#king Medieval.
      Gee, I hope he doesn't have any JEW in him too.

      I just had the same experience this weekend involving a lesbian who apparently still feels burned by Hillary's loss. I gently reminded her the truth behind his upringing and not the smears that have been told during the campaign. I asked her was she going to vote republican and she said she didn't know. She is still holding onto the stand that Hillary was the better Dem. So, I asked her since now that isn't a possiblity what was she thinking the next move would be. She said she didn't feel like voting at all. Ego is a really bad thing with these competitive lezzies.

      I am so tired of the bullsh-t line about Obama being a "novice" on defense. Where was this argument in 2000 when the second-in-command to the Commander-in-chief was beaten, or in 1992, when the incumbent president (who had staged a supremely successful military campaign) was defeated by the governor of Arkansas? If Obama has good advisers, it really won't matter, any more than it mattered when we elected Bush. Even though Bush was president during the first attack on American soil to occur in a very long time, we re-elected him anyway. While I'm not a huge fan of Obama in particular (as I've said about a trillion times now), I think this argument is utterly ridiculous.

      "Muslim blood" is so out there it made me laugh. Is it intentionally parroting the language of white supremacists?
