1. That is really scary. My brain just went into freeze mode. I blame their elected leaders for

this outrageous lack of education, and mostly for a lack of dentists....LOL..

31. Do you tink'

Their unelected 'leaders,' those of the religious persuasion, have any say in their willful ignorance?

3. You can't argue with stupid. That this sort of

ignorance and stupidity exists in the US ought to be a source of national shame. Instead, it's a source of regional pride. Makes me cringe.

4. Such ignorance

not only stupid and wrong, but thinking that God is the thing that is missing and if only.............

Can we persuade them to secede?

Added - In some ways it makes me want to cry that in 2012 we have a state that is so backwards that they would be happy going back to the 1800s and thinking they would be in God's glory.

The children don't stand a chance.

5. I feel as if I just watcher the latest Coen Brother's movie trailer!

When I was younger I spent some time in Kentucky and Tennessee. The folks in the rural areas were a little odd but nothing like this. Has anyone weighed their brains to see if they are a few ounces short of three pounds?

Nancy Pelosi's daughter (can't recall her first name at the moment) made the film clips either late last year or early this year.

30. This really hurt to watch.

I don't like to admit that some of my people are like this. But the truth is right there...

SOME people don't want to work. SOME people are moochers. SOME people feel entitled to handouts, and haven't done a damned thing to earn them... except maybe reproduce. Some of these people are able-bodied and quite capable of holding a job.

It makes me want to puke.

I end up having more respect for the Bible-thumping racists, as long as they're holding down a job.

I, unfortunately, live in this god-forsaken state.
I had no idea that people were actually like this in real life!

12. This is not limited to the south

I hear the same things from my family in Massachusetts and from some of my neighbors in California. It may be more prevalent in the south, but they don't have a lock on it.

15. I wonder if any of those people

know it's a Pelosi asking them those questions? I'd bet at least half of those she interviewed go to rallies and rant and rave about Pelosi, Reid and Soros. The names they use to show how informed they are.

17. Yes

Yes they are- born and lived the bulk of my life in a 'red state' - and yes as a female you are 'suspect' and if you are not a fundy x-tian you get harrassed. I have known of peoples homes, vehicles etc being vandalized, in some cases even pets have been murdered in mutliated by these upstanding 'god fearing' christain types. They do not seem to realize three things
1) the civil war is over
2) they were manipulated by wealthy plantation owners and are still being manipulated
3) the religion they cling to is a religion soley based on hatred, and is a tool for the current plantation owners to use to manipulate them.

19. And they wonder why they are the poorest state in the Union??

...and the most illiterate, and probably the closest to the Stone Age?...well, keep thumpin' them Bibles, and hating them people with darker skin color then yours, and the South will get their ass handed to them again, if you want to believe that nonsense.

Honest to God, THIS is why we are a nation of morons. Thank God there are some decent folks in the South, because they are sadly outnumbered by half-wits like these fools.

28. It is easy to laugh at these people-

they have not had the education and proper(ish) upbringing I have had.
This just makes me sad about the human condition. They really do not know. This is what they were exposed to their whole lives. I can't say I would be different if I grew up as they did.
AS sad as they make me, I hope they stay home in November.

29. I don't know

My mother and brother live in northern VA and while their command of the english language is a bit better they would agree with these folks being tea party fundies themselves. I grew up around them yet escaped. (Always thought they were mean and not so bright)

Does make me sad though...

35. I would like to think that I would do better in the exact same circumstances-

but I am thinking of ME as I am now. My mind recoils at much of what was said. I like to find fault with the major failings of those in our history in this country and would like to think I would do better. I know me now but, in that other reality, who knows? It does not really bear thinking about, but is a thorn under my saddle.
Nice job rising above your personal history! I would bet that some in the video could do it too, with the right nudge at the right time-developmentally.

Al Capp would be proud.
(Course he was a scumbag in his own way. Ask Goldie Hawn.)
