Well the asshats at Camp Pampers must really have been crapping themselves this week as the little douches were out in force on the blogs. Here are some of my favorites. Let's lead off with this poster who says I have to stop quoting Gandhi:
Stop quoting Gandhi, you bastards! Gandhi was all about unity, not this senseless bickering. Plus, Obama is a lot more like him than Hillary or, for that matter, Mr. McCain. I find this abuse of him grossly offensive. Hey moderator, please post this! I really want see how these people can justify this atrocity.
Obama is more like Gandhi? Interesting. Did Gandhi sit in the pew of a racist church that was against gay rights, Jews, and non-Africans for 20 years? Nope.
Did Gandhi collude with people who used violent means to achieve their goals like Billy Ayers of the Weather Underground, or Rashid Khalidi of the PLO? Nope. Gandhi preached non violence.
Did Gandhi use his political position to expand the financial largess of his supporters like Obama did in Chicago? Nope.
The Mahatma has been a hero of mine since I was young. Though I wouldn't profess to be as wise, or eloquent, his call for the use of non-violence and civil disobedience resonates with me. His struggle inspires me to stand up for what I believe in without reservation, without hesitation, regardless of the risks. Some things are worth fighting for in this world. My quoting him is not about who is more like him. It is about the fact that he speaks to me, my causes, my struggles.
I agree with the poster that Gandhi desired unity in India. I suppose the implication then is that Obama and Clinton supporters should be uniting in common cause. Obama the unifier made it clear that our votes weren't needed. He made it clear that blue collar white folks are just bitter bible thumping gun toting racists. His campaign and his supporters made it clear that misogyny and sexism were okay if it helped achieve campaign success. His campaign and his supporters made it clear that anyone who opposed him was racist. You tell me what part of that Gandhi would have approved of there.
It is ludicrous to think it is an atrocity for me to quote Gandhi, but even more so to think that Pampers has anything in common with him.
My other personal favorite was from a poster calling himself Downriver Doc who posted this little gem:
There WAS a roll call and Hillery only got like 314 votes. Why do you people have such hard heads. You must be closet republicans!!!.If you claim to be a Democrat and
you vote against the democratic party!!! You are nothing but a traitor to the USA.
You will ALL be crying in your beards if McLame gets voted into office. Your lack of support will be the sole cause and is a HUGE failing in your character and TRUE DEMOCRATIC way of government. You will most certainly get what is comming to you if McLame wins.
Downriver Doc, I'm going to assume you were not in Denver. I'm going to assume that you did not have Hillary pledged delegates approaching you on the street to tell you how they were being pressured into voting for Obama, that their political futures were being threatened if they didn't vote for him. You probably didn't know that pledged delegates are not supposed to be voting in their hotel rooms, but in an open forum where all the votes are counted. You're probably not aware that all traditional democratic procedures were thrown out so that Pampers could have his dog and pony show with a fake roll call where more than half the votes weren't recorded. Since you are clearly a fascist who has no problem suspending democracy in favor of personality (the essence of fascism) it does not surprise me that you couldn't care less about delegate intimidation or the suspension of democratic rules, as long as your god is crowned. So please spare us the lecture on the "true democratic way of government" as there was nothing democratic about that roll call.
Again, I don't claim to be a Democrat. I'm not. I left the party because it failed to stand up for itself in 2000 and we got stuck with that moron in the White House. That was your precious party's fault so why don't you start assigning blame where it belongs instead of laying it on Americans who have the right to vote for whom they choose, whether you approve or not. As for the allegation that I would be traitor to the USA if I don't vote for Obama...that is so laughable I will not dignify that remark with comment.
Our lack of support will be the sole cause of Pampers' defeat? If we have so much power you might try being a little more complimentary (and by the way, we do...just ask Sarah Palin).
As for your veiled threat...please tell us what we've got coming. We really want to know. I hope it's a margarita machine!
And now...Sir Ben Kingsley (I bet anonymous up there is mad at him too; and Dick Attenborough).
