Florida Republican Volunteer Tells Senior Citizens: Obama Is A ‘Muslim’ Who Will ‘Get Rid Of Your...

A volunteer for the Republican Party of Clay County, Florida called President Obama a “Muslim” and said that he would “get rid of your Medicare” while calling voters on behalf of Mitt Romney.

In audio obtained by a Tampa-area radio station, the woman made the remarks directly to senior citizens, but her comments were recorded by an answering machine from a previous number:

Well think really heard, you all sound like senior citizens, no? …. Yea, you don’t want Obama, you don’t want Obama because he’ll get rid of your Medicare. You might as well say goodbye to it. … Yea, and I don’t know if you have done any research on Obama or not, but he is a Muslim. He has got a socialistic view on the government, economy, the whole nine yards. If he had his way, we would be a socialistic country. …. Pay attention to Fox News. If you can get out and watch that movie 2016, do so, it has a lot of really good information. Just really read the newspapers and Fox News will help you.

3. Someone's brain is scrambled.

I'd love to set that young 'un right.

If Obama is a Muslim, why did the right wing go after Rev Wright? Remember that? He was the preacher from the Protestant church. So now, is Obama a Muslim or was the GOP lying when they claimed he went to Rev Wright's church? Which is it?

No, Obama is not a Muslim, but Mittwit is a Mormon. Not a good one mind you but he does wear his magic underwear.

Doesn't the GOP claim that Medicare is a socialist program? Then why, if Obama is a socialist would he want to get rid of it? Now, which is it? Is Obama a socialist or is Medicare a socialist program? You can't have it both ways. Want some help with that answer, dearie? Neither one of those assumptions is true.

But I don't blame you since you listen to Faux News. For your information, Faux is an entertainment program and not a viable news source. You'd be better off getting your news from Jon Stewart on the Comedy channel than getting it from Faux and you'd have a better sense of humor too. It is obvious you have never read a newspaper or you would already have known that Faux didn't provide the unbiased news.

5. Obama is a Communist Muslim according to my co-worker

So my co-worker thinks Obama is a secret Muslim (because he went to muslim school as a child), secret communist (which had something to do with his father or grandfather), belonging to a radical racist Christian church (that is not really Christian), and interested in creating a non-military army larger than our current military to usurp power (based on some comment way back over mobilizing civilians for something... I don't remember exactly what).

Funny thing is, he's a great guy if you don't talk politics. Just had his mind incredibly poisoned by Glenn Beck, Limbaugh, and the evangelical church he belongs to.

6. I Know a Guy The

same way….watches that Fox news all the time, it’s on all the time even when no one home, it on. Glenn Beck and Limbaugh as well. I told him he’s not rich enough Repug and he said he knows it….what the hell then? I can’t believe some of these R-wing nuts.
Believes everything the NRA sends out as well. I told him every time I get one of those mailing from the NRA I sent the amount ask for the too OB (i dont, but).LOL! I’ve wore out two shredders just shredding that NRA stuff. If the post office would charge them for their mailing their troubles would be over…LOL
