1. If there's no tape, no one will believe it.

 

And if there is a tape, the baggers will claim it was a liberal plant to make them look bad.

10. The teabag party is the epitome of scumbaggery, yet the media, for some reason, sees fit

to provide them with a semblance of credibility by putting them on the air; in particular, giving Michele Bachmann & Rand Paul air time after the SOTU speech. That's unbelievable.

12. It isn't a mystery to me.

 

Giving the baggers legitimacy allows the political center to move further to the right. The more people hear that the 1980's Republican style politics that the present Democratic Party practices are Marxism and Socialism and Communism, the easier it is to move them to accept the growing corporate fascism we endure.

And in a way they're proving President Obama's point: perhaps if they'd had better early education themselves they'd be nicer and more reasonable people.

11. Again???

This just makes me sick! Stupidly, I really thought just a couple years ago that we had gotten past this racial crap! However, since Obama has come into our lives, these asswipes, who are terrified of him, have to go off on this garbage. Never have I seen or heard such complete disrespect, not only for the man, but for the Office as well. Thankfully, he will go down in history as one of the greatest presidents we ever had. Well. at least until the pukes get around to re-writing history again. We gotta get these crazies out of congress and out of state govt. because they seem to promote this behavior, rather than denounce it.

17. I don't doubt it for a second.

And skeptics don't own stock in the truth. Strafing reports with accusations of lying doesn't make them more perceptive or more right than everyone else.

When I told the story of what a guy who works in a metals machine shop told me about management's attitude towards making items that were geared towards women, I had some asswads jump in to accuse me of lying.

No, just because some people protect their assumptions with cynicism and kill-the-messenger attitudes doesn't mean you should let them have their way.

29. Usually I'd agree with you. Thing is, over 24 hours later and they haven't made any replies.....

...to defend their diary against the dozens of critics or provide the promised updates.

Could be because they're nervous of the swarm, or maybe it's because they made it up?

19. I read the whole Kos comment thread

 

At this point just about all of the comments are expressing serious doubt. They all seem pretty convinced this was the work of a troll.

I'm always a bit wary of stories that are a little too convenient to certain narratives. That doesn't mean they aren't true, but they do need to be verified. That seems to be the problem with this story. There's no verification at all aside from the word of the OP (I mean the Kos diary, not you ).

21. This article sounded like hearsay to me because

of the last part: "I have a couple of sources at the engagement and I am working to get more information. To my knowledge, no one was arrested, though several people were trespassed off of the property. As I hear from the school coordinator and a friend who attended the event, I will update this diary with more information."

I am not saying the South is racist, and the North is not.

Boston had some of the worst school integration riots in US history.

But having been to both cities, I heard the 'N' word a good five times more than I did in Boston

I always thought that this state was full of racism. I moved here in 1989 from South Florida. I expected to meet a lot of racists, but so far, I have not met one at all.

When I was in Georgia, I did a POC at a bank which LITERALLY would not allow non-whites to work on their servers.

I tried to complain to the state human rights board, but never heard back.

20. It's going to take a long time, apparently, for this filthy hatred to lose its grip

on the slowest, and most inwardly deformed people in our country.

What a hideous, rotten shame. It should remind sane people of what a shock, it is, apparently, to these mouth-breathing knuckledraggers that the U.S. American people chose President Obama, and twice.

This primitive bunch has reminded us how hard it is to REALLY educate people who resist all efforts to civilize them. They stand alone in their red-faced, sweaty, sloppy, wild-eyed ignorance.

Original Post:

All-time low for the right: Shouting the n-word outside of an elementary school Obama was visiting



Today, President Barack Obama flew into Dobbins Airforce Base near Atlanta to speak at the College Heights Early Learning Center in the relatively sleepy suburb of Decatur, GA.

The school is renowned for it's quality education. While visiting with students, parents, and administrators, Obama gave a speech where he praised the value of early education. This is all common-sense stuff except to those pushing starve-the-beast austerity type measures that hurt the underprivileged and disenfranchised.

The highlight of the trip, though, was the right reaching an all time low... by shouting racial epithets outside of an elementary school!

It's apparent to everyone by now that the so-called Tea Party will protest anything that Obama supports. Education for young child? Protest! So perhaps it wasn't surprising that a sizable crowd formed in protest. The signs featured are the usual hodge-podge of illiteracy and ignorance. However, what happened at the end of the engagement is what should really turn your stomach.

As Obama was prepared to leave, the protesters, riled up by a speaker with a megaphone, began to shout epithets at our Commander-in-Chief.

"You're a (n-word)!" one shouted.

"Go back to Kenya!"

Never mind that there were children there, being exposed to the hate, bigotry and ignorance that the American right has to offer. The administrators scrambled to shoo the children away, though undoubtedly some had heard the hurtful words that they were shouting.

I have a couple of sources at the engagement and I am working to get more information. To my knowledge, no one was arrested, though several people were trespassed off of the property. As I hear from the school coordinator and a friend who attended the event, I will update this diary with more information.
