Sarah Palin's job in all of this is to throw the red meat into the crowd. And she is good at it and seems to have no conscience about doing so. She feels the power and loves it. The boys in charge have chosen well.
Obama, a socialist? Not even close.
At one recent rally someone yelled "kill him" as Palin was pumping up the crowd. At a McCain event a supporter of his yelled "terrorist" when the Republican candidate asked "Who is Barack Obama?"
Again the Post reports, "The crowd showed equal disdain for the media, fueled by comments from Palin, who encouraged the Republican supporters to take the campaign's message around the media. 'I can't pick a fight with those who buy ink by the barrel,' she said. 'It's dangerous territory whenever I suggest the mainstream media isn't asking all the questions.' "
Translation - the media is picking on me. Defend me against the socialists and the liberal media. The crowd loves it because she plays on their own sense of powerlessness. They feel a sense of duty and unity for their cause.
Yes Sarah Palin, the millionaire, who pretends to be just like Joe Six-Pack, is being picked on. Grab your gun and defend her.......
The fascists now running this country know they must get out in front of the public outrage and turn it away from them toward their own enemies who could potentially expose their corruption. Thus the left who are challenging corporate power and the "liberal media" become the target. This is what this election is really about.
I've always maintained that a country like the U.S., who has aided in the killing of people all over the world in order to build it's military and economic empire, would some day have to turn their sights on us here at home. We are no longer needed to build cars and make clothes. That can be done more cheaply overseas. Unemployment is growing in the U.S. and there is nothing more dangerous than an educated unemployed worker. They become revolutionaries.
If you have doubts just see what our government has done to the Indians when their land was taken from them. Or see how the black liberation movement has been treated over the years. Or how the labor movement was beaten and killed during our history as they tried to organize workers.
We are all being brought onto the reservation now. American is being pitted against American.
We should each be careful how we get used in creating this new deadly internal conflict.
