The question: Are people in America really that dumb? Answer: Yes, they are

Stupidity was rampant in Ohio yesterday when McCain-Palin supporters were confronted. One woman says (about Barack Obama), “He’s got the bloodlines”. The guy filming says, “What does that mean?”, and the woman responds, “look at the name”.
OK, let’s look at the name
Barack Hussein Obama
A name given to him 47 years ago in 1961. Saddam Hussein was 24 years old in 1961 and was not President of Iraq until 1979.
Osama bin Laden was 4 years old in 1961
America created Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. Both were once CIA assets. We created them and when they used our training to turn against us, we then deemed them “boogeymen” for all evils that happen in America. None of this had anything to do with Barack Obama.
Another woman actually says Obama IS a terrorist!
OK, let’s give her the benefit of the doubt…let’s assume Obama is a terrorist
Oh my! Look! It’s John McCain about to shake hands with a “terrorist”!
Oh my! Look! It’s John McCain standing beside a “terrorist”!
Oh my! Look! It’s John McCain debating with a “terrorist”!
Oh my! Look! It’s Pastor Rick Warren shaking hands with a “terrorist”!
Oh my! Look! It’s Rick Warren again laughing and having a good ole time with a “terrorist”!
watch the extravaganza of stupidity
The cameraman, Tim Russo, from http://www.bloggerinterrupted.com/ writes this:
"I’ve been doing blog video for a while, and presidential rallies a lot longer. And this is the most strange, ignorant, uninformed, angry, up-to-no-good, and gullible group of people I’ve ever seen at a political rally.
The fact that my videos of McCain-Palin supporters (here and here) are blowing up online tells me a lot.
First, the media should be ashamed of themselves for not covering this until now. The McCain-Palin supporters in my videos are not new, they are not exceptional, they are not hiding. This is who they are. It has been brewing for months, and not one mainstream media outlet has taken the time to expose them. Not one. And that is dangerous. If America is about to decide on its president based on this level of hate and ignorance, without a single question being asked as to why, then America is in for a rude awakening.
You could get video of these hateful and ignorant people in your sleep. Not just in Ohio, everywhere. Our country has been sleepwalking through this campaign as if none of this vitriol exists. Well, not only does it exist, it is rampant, and it is there for anyone with a camera to record. And these people are proud to be this hateful and ignorant on your camera.
Second, the McCain campaign has done nothing to dispel these fantasies. To the contrary, McCain and Palin themselves have been stoking it. That, too, is dangerous.
This video includes a family who believes Barack Obama is a terrorist. They brought an Obama doll, to show he’s a "puppet", and when asked why, their small child says "you need gloves to touch him". Bonus footage of 2 closeted gays - see if you can tell which ones!
Bottom line - I have never seen such a dangerous group of people at a presidential rally, so willing to announce their views to a guy holding a camera, and so transparently up to no good. These people are very easily incited, as we have seen, and they need to be exposed.
In particular, a woman, who teaches her own child, that the next president of the United States is so vile that "you need gloves to touch him" needs to be put on video, and see how her views look in the light of day. I don’t know how anyone can teach their own child this level of hate."
Here is a video separate from the Tim Russo ones. This one is from http://www.blueohioan.com/ The reporter asks one woman, "What are your feelings if Barack Obama is elected?" The woman says, "Unsafe", then says, "I just have visions of 9/11 happening again". (Despite the fact that 9/11 happened on a Republicans’ watch!!)
One woman is asks what qualifies John McCain to be President. She answers, "He was in charge of the Air Force".
A few women say that McCain is pro-life and Obama is a babykiller. (since when has a pro-life President had any effect whatsoever on the Roe v. Wade decision??)
….and the ignorance of "Bill" is just too much for words to describe. You just have to watch it to believe it.
One man says "Osama bombed the Pentagon, so did Ayres". (Despite the fact that even the FBI hasn’t charged, nor has even indicted Bin Laden for 9/11)
watch more painful ignorance
