Ignorance led to Obama?

Yes. It did and that's what I said a week ago. A know-nothing mob of ignorant people shoved a know-nothing marxist down the world's throat. Ignorance led to Obama... ahem... how sad and scary!

and if you take a look at a red/blue county by county map yu will see that it was mostly the big cities/large poplation centers that did this to the rest of U.S. in Nevada, my state, only two counties,of course the one that las vegas is in and the one reno is in, the two most populated are blue,, in fact the Majority of the frickin counrty is red, we were disenfanchised by by the rich snobs AND the poor inner city "folk" the regular joe Americans in flyover country are f****D

Azadeh, I didn't say he is bad. I said he is a "know-nothing empty suit Marxist idiot". ;-)

Oh yeah that video says a lot. It tells us what that let's just take 12 stupid random voters and test that against the millions of people that voted for Obama. Secondly, what's so bad about Marxism? Marx in fact would never believe the class-led hierarchies that we all currently live would constitute anyone running for office in them a Marxist. For in face Obama isn't talking about any sort of revolution. Thirdly, that video evidently shows what Carl Schmitt said over 60 years ago about democracy and that is nothing more than a spectacle, to prove not who necessarily is the better candidate, but who is the more charismatic. But in my opinion I still think the better candidate won.

Last I checked 100,000,000 DEAD PEOPLE might have one or two things to say about what is so "bad" about Marxism.

But in my opinion I still think the better candidate won

Considering your earlier statement, your opinion isn't worth a damn thing.

The problem with Shropshire Lad's claim that "12 stupid random voters" were tested versus all the millions of people who voted for Obama is this-- take a look at what useless drivel, lies, and misconceptions they DID know versus the important information about their candidates they DIDN'T know.

A friend of mine has a degree in political science and considers himself very active and knowlegable. He's also an Obama supporter. I filled him in on the bad things I knew about Obama. He thought I was lying to him until I showed him the videos. "How come the media didn't tell anybody all this?" he asked. He was absolutely incredulous.

The people in this video are not carefully selected. They are very representative, almost perfectly brainwashed voters.

Winston - oy vey, you're jewish? who knew? (why do we eat matzo on Passover?)

First off, those lot of people didn't die for Marxism they died under a communist based commissarial dictatorship for one. Marx dies long before the USSR was created under Lenin, so if you had said under a Leninist-Stalinist state i might have agreed with you. Secondly aren't you portraying your opinion by saying my opinion isn't worth a thing? Thirdly why stay anonymous?

Ok next "anonymous" person. If you believe that the media brainwashes people, then you are just as brainwashed by the same media that happens to fall on the "conservative" side of the spectrum. Why try to create partisanship through your paranoia and ignorance? Representative, brainwashed huh? Well I voted for Obama and I could answer all of those questions, plus i don't just follow the media, but clearly you don't since you're more worried about that.

In conclusion, both of you "anonymous" commentators are also just speculating i didn't see once ounce of fact cited in either of your statements.

Winston, I love your blog! You give me hope in humanity when surrounded by so much stupidity, you shine forth as a beacon of intelligence.
I posted that same map last Saturday, my son said ,"America is getting a little saggy around the edges! Time for a face lift."
Keep up your insightful posts, I need them.

Jungle Mom said...

Actually, it was not 12 stupid random voters who were polled!
Note the poll was of 512 Obama Voters!

97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)

81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet…..

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only .5% got all of them correct.

Ah, but we are the stupid uniformed ones...

Why do you persist in leveling insults at everyone with different perspectives than you? I vehemently disagree with you, but I have respect for you as a human being thus refuse to belittle you.

Obama a Marxist? That's interesting, considering that George Bush essentially just commissioned the biggest government takeover of private industry in nearly a century, does he fall in the same category? Nowhere did I hear Obama or his aids pushing for Communism. Know nothing? Really, apparently his Law Degree from Harvard exemplifies that?

I live in Utah, one of the most Red states in the U.S. I guarantee you that I can go out and find 12 McCain voters whose answers would be just as ill-informed as are these twelve Obama supporters. It is the characteristic of American democracy--of democracy in general--for there to be a majority of uninformed voters...on both sides of the political spectrum.

Winston - we agree on a lot, but not on the US elections. Obama is not a Marxist. He's a free trader through and through (too much so, some would say).

And you shouldn't hold his middle name against him. Every other Iranian has an Arabic-sounding middle name after all. Plus, he is fiercely committed to Israel's security. Check out his speech to AIPAC's '08 policy conference!

Winston said...

@ Sohrab

Really? He is not a Marxist because he is into free trade? LOL. Since when he has become a free trader? hmmmm, may be when he said he didn't like NAFTA? oh I see how he is one. He just opposes free trade with Colombia. hmmm, so he is a free trader. funny! And yes I hold his ISLAMIC-ARABIC name against him. He is an undercover Muslim. And I don't think EVERY Iranian has an arabic sounding name. I don't. How can you speak for all Iranians? How do you know EVERY OTHER Iranians? Apparently, you too have drunk the kool-aid of Obama. That's so sad

@ the last Anonymous comment;

I saw RP's letter to Sen. Obama. I think it is just a nice worded letter and a traditional "paying respect" to the new president. nothing important! Carry on

Jessica said...

Good point Winston, regarding the middle name, but, I was clearly exaggerating.

Winston said...

you're exaggerating about what?
