The Truth Shall Set You Free…It might piss you off first, but it will set you free.

It’s Not About Health Care America : It’s About Racism OR Tea Party Conservatives – or Racism is Alive and Well in the USA

Posted by politicalmonkey2010 on March 21, 2010

I am absolutely disgusted, and this is coming from a “white woman” for the record!  We are all aware of the vote on Sunday for health care, we have all seen Obama out campaigning for it, we have all seen the Tea Party and Conservative rallies against it, and I am all for rallies, it’s called freedom of speech.

What  every single “conservative” in America -( I’ll take it a step further every single human being on the face of the planet) needs to rally around is calling out the racists.

I will start with this story from CNN (http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/03/20/protesters-hurl-slurs-and-spit-at-democrats/?fbid=5YN8rpQDdby#more-95502)

Washington (CNN) – Civil rights icon and veteran Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, said anti-health care bill protesters Saturday repeatedly yelled the “N” word at him as he left a heath care meeting and walked to the Capitol.

“I haven’t seen heard anything like this in more than 40 years, maybe 45.” Lewis said. “Since the march from Selma to Montgomery really.”

“Yeah, but it’s okay,” Lewis added. “I’ve faced this before. So, it reminded me of the 60’s. There’s a lot of downright hate and anger and people are just being downright mean.”

The incident was confirmed by Rep. Andre Carson, D-Indiana, who was walking with Lewis at the time. Protesters were yelling, “‘kill the bill, kill the bill’ and the ‘N’ word several times,” Carson said.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Missouri, released a statement late Saturday saying he too was called the “N” word as he walked to the Capitol for a vote and that he was spat on by one protestor who was arrested by U.S. Capitol Police. Cleaver declined to press charges against the man, the statement said.

Protesters also hurled anti-gay comments at Rep. Barney Frank, D-Massachusetts, who is openly gay, as he left the same health care meeting that Lewis attended in a House office building.

A CNN producer overheard the word “faggot” yelled at Frank several times in the lobby of the Longworth building. Frank said he heard someone yell “homo” at him.

“I’m disappointed,” Frank said. “There’s an unwillingness to be civil.”

Frank, who said he rarely hears such slurs anymore, said the health care issue has become “the proxy for a lot of other sentiments. A lot of which are perfectly reasonable but some of which are kind of ugly.”

WHAT IS THIS AMERICA? All of those conservatives who profess to love  American principles, does anybody remember that phrase “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their  Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.  You will note it does not say:  if you ass is lily white like mine and you believe in the same religion as me.

Civil Rights Bill Mr. Conservative?  Remember that one?  Or is that not party of the Conservative ideaology?

Since when do we stand still and let our American principles be raped and abused by people who shout out slurs?   There is freedom of speech/expression and then there is just plain bad taste, and what I believe borders on hate crimes.

Make no mistake this isn’t about Health Care Reform, if you listen to the Republicans, yes we like tort reform, (it’s in the bill), yes we like making sure people with pre-existing conditions are covered by insurance (it’s in the bill) and the list goes on.  The heart of the Republican/Conservative/Tea Party objection to Health Care Reform is based in race,  they can hide behind it costs too much, the deficit is out of control, the bottom line is Mr. and Mrs. Conservative you can put all the lipstick you want on this pig but at the end of the day it’s still a pig.

So after hearing this story about John Lewis I was curious as to what cyberspace and those twittering idiots were up to..here’s a little experiment you too can do…and what I found was appalling.

First I went to http://search.twitter.com

This is a nifty little spot in the twitterdom and I typed in a variety of phrases – go ahead try it yourself.  If somebody caught my eye in their 140 characters of verbal masturbation I clicked on them and looked at their twitters.  Here are a few little gems broughts to you courtesy of those folks who claim to love America…

So after reading a few conservative, tea party blogs and tweets here are some that showcase that freedom fo speech, does not protect us from idiots.

This one I got by typing in the search box http://search.twitter.com/search?q=obama+kenyan since there seems to be alot of chatter in cyberspace about this…

Linny_Buck: Barack Insane Obama, Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, fuck you very much! YOU MOTHER FUCKING BI_SEXUAL KENYAN! YOU SORRY SACK OF SHIT!

Do you eat with that mouth?  Is this the best you could come up with when you live in a country that offers the best free education in the world?
These folks would be entertaining if they weren’t so scarey:

Here’s one from a nice looking conservative woman, maybe your neighbor, maybe the woman you see in church every Sunday?

Cynthia022: Obama is not just black,he is a black Muslim. http://www.islamoncapitolhill.com/ Wake up America!!!!

What does Pres. Obama have to do for people to understand he is not Muslim?  Here’s a bigger question…so what if he is Muslim?  I think Cynthia022 needs to review that little item about religious freedom, or did she miss that day in history class?  More importantly, Cynthia022 get your facts straight, because somebody understands the Muslim religion does not make them a Muslim – for example I understand what you are saying and I can promise you that does not make me a conservative…

I could go on for hours on these types of conversations, and you know if I had not read them for myself I would have never believed that people were actually saying these things.

If you want to argue the facts argue the facts.  This racist, ignorant rhetoric serves no purpose at all, what it shows is that you are afraid of the US actually becoming a place where all are created equal without regard for race, religion or sex.  It shows ignorance.  I do not fear Islam, I do not fear Osama Bid Laden, what I fear is this  cult, mob, reeking of Nazism group of folks who are perverting American principles.

WAKE UP AMERICA!
