Obama Supporters Read !! Action!!
In light of Rep. Steve King's disgusting comments about Obama today, I've emailed the Kenyan embassy, hoping the Ambassador might ask for a formal apology on behalf of Obama's Kenyan grandmother and out of respect to his Kenyan father. We can't allow this bigoted garbage to go unchecked. If you're so inclined to email as well, here's the address: public.diplomacy@kenyaembassy.com

Republican Congressman King: Terrorists Will "Dance In the Streets" With Obama Victory
March 08, 2008 11:19 AM
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, speaking to a local Iowa radio station, said that terrorists would dance in the streets if Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, is elected president -- precisely because of not only Obama's position on withdrawing US troops from Iraq, but because Obama's middle name is "Hussein," his father's Muslim roots, and his appearance -- or "optics," as King put it.

3. Fear-mongering. It's what Republicans do best.
This I expect. It's when Hillary does it to a member of her own party that I get nauseated.

:puke:

11. Stop obsessing

...and focus on the GOP.

And it's not only "Obama democrats" who don't like this crap. No decent people do.

5. We should all email King this link

Juan Cole did a great job on the name Hussein and those who choose to vilify it.

8. Contact your Congresscritters. King should be subject to ethics censure ...
... for his statement.

Push back!
