Rwing email about Obama not putting his hand over his heart for pledge.
They're starting in full force. I received an email from my fundie brother-in-law calling Obama a "clown" for not putting his hand over his heart at the fund raiser in Sept. It's a chain email that hit in full force after it happened and now again. I'm gonna respond to my BIL, but I'm gonna have what I need to shut him up. Just a heads up 'cause the likes of Roger Stone are at work.

1. I just send the same response to anyone who mails me any
of those little turds of wisdom:

This is spam, and you are an asshole...

2. My FIL sent me that awhile ago - I did a group respond
to hit everyone he had sent it to at the same time - it wasn't the pledge it was the national anthem which doesn't "require" the hand over the heart BS.

All the fake patriotism drives me nuts - I can kill 4000+ Americans but if I put my hand over the where my heart is supposed to be for the pledge than every things okay - what a bunch of wankers.

6. you know, I get so mad when I get these
that I almost want to put a block on his emails, but then I would never get the chance to set the record straight with him. I'm so tired of them.

8. I've seen him do that about half a dozen times
It must be standard for him. It's not unheard of; I've seen other people do it too.

5. Respond with this.
It's the best. It kicks ass. It will be quite useful all election season long. Remind the idiot who sent it to you that you spent a few minutes of your life that you'll never get back reading their vomitous tripe, so the least they could do is lean back in that La-Z-Boy and watch a video. :-)

10. They can *FUCK OFF* this year. That kind of stupid ass bullshit isn't going to work this year.
As far as I'm concerned they can forward that moronic garbage as much as they like - this election year is not going to be moved by "who you want to have a beer with" or whether or not someone crossed their legs when they were supposed to. It's going to be moved by an economy in freefall after 8 years of republican policies, a war spiraling out of control that is costing us hundreds of billions of dollars, making us LESS safe and destroying the lives of thousands upon thousands of Americans. It's going to be about health care. And its going to be about jobs.

People who care about putting hands over hearts are going to be pulling the level for Obama because this election is about Qualified vs. Not.

15. Its right up there with the other emails
Remember the one that said Obama was a secret Muslim with a crazy Christian minister that hates America? They don't even try to make sense, do they?

I swear, I couldn't go to sleep last for thinking about this. It's something that's personal with me since I have to deal with him.

23. This is old. He's just now getting it? It's been debunked on nat'l news.
Forget debunking it to your relatives. They know those e-mails cannot be believed. They are pretending they believe them, or they WANT to believe them, and there is nothing you can do about that.

When I hear about those same ol' e-mails, I tell so-called friends, "Oh, come on. You know you can't believe those rightwing e-mails. They always do that. They did that to Kerry, too. You know better than that."

I don't get into the specifics, because there is nothing you can say to counter their supposed belief. But I call them on their common sense...because deep down they know those e-mails are not true. We've discussed various of those types of e-mails in the past.

24. yep, I agree
Edited on Sat Jun-07-08 10:04 AM by Blue_Roses
you can't debunk his stupid beliefs. I just can't seem to let it go. This guy is a nice person until we talk politics. His mother was a friend to Bush and she calls him, "Bushy" :puke: to be cute. He and I have gone toe-to-toe about issues in the past and I knew this was coming. I usually ignore the emails--while my blood boils--but this one has really hit a nerve. I think it's the use of the word, "clown" that crawls all over me. It's belittling and it sounds like a "I am superior" tone. Typical rwing.

If anything, it will make me feel better to react with facts and grace-- that's why I'm waiting, otherwise it would be a "fuck-you idiot," which would sure feel good but would not help. This is someone that I see on a regular basis because of my sister, and I'm not gonna keep letting him think this is okay by not responding.

I think we need a new forum here on DU: Dealing with right-wing family members. :crazy:
