    This is just plain dumb.

    This is definitely become the "limbo" campaign for the GOP. As in "how low can you go." I hate to think what's next from this crowd.

    Well, Dick Cheney could say that a vote for Kerry is a vote for terrorism. That would be even more ridiculous.

    I don't see John Kerry allowing this. He is a practicing Christian, so for him to approve this would be extremely hipocritical.

    What would Kerry have to approve in a Republican ad?

    Roger, when I posted the thread I didn't mean for the claims in the Republican ad to be taken seriously. You are right; Kerry would never approve of banning the Bible. I was trying to point out how outrageous the GOP has gotten in its campaign rhetoric.

    kerry should go on a pre-emptive offensive, and let everyone know right now that he neither eats babies nor rides little old women down snowhills like a sled.

    And the Rove-wing media would instantly debate the authenticity of such statements. With banners under the talking heads screaming "DOES KERRY EAT BABIES?" and "KERRY: CANNIBAL MONSTER?" 'cause if scandalous lies are propagated in the form of a question blazing out in text at the bottom of the screen, it's still "news" and not "propaganda."

    Evidently, pretty low. As long as the Bush administration doesn't have to answer for its actions over the last four years.

    sooooo many things........

    I'll list a few (caution, extremely offensive humor):

    1.Lack of appropriate foreplay

    2.Viagra

    3.Osteoporosis

    4.They make better Snowboards (dude)

    5.Their false teeth make it hard to steer if they've used that Poli-Grip crap.


    Now that I've proven myself shamelessly evil I return you to your regularly scheduled political brawl. :eek:

    if the rnc put that out, and bush wins, well then welcome nazi america

    look back at what happened to germany, with the only difference being that gays and liberals will be the ones to be attacked in amerikkka

    most republicans are moderates and equally opposed to fascist ideals, but the extremists within the gop have a voice as strong as any major group...it's funny how extremists on the right and left are...they are no different

    the most vocal liberals of the 60s liked the idea of violence and use of assault weapons and our fbi targeted them...today, the right wing extremists are the ones on the fbi's most wanted list

    They got it wrong. Liberals only want to force you to REGISTER your bibles.

    Of course, as we all know registering things is the first step towards banning them. (See also DMV, Automobile registration)

    Hey wait, I just registered to vote... Does that mean the next step is to take my vote away??? :eek:

    A very excellent post. It is important to re-enforce Jeff's point here:

    In the case of Nazi Germany a few psychotic zealots were able to draw the rest of their country along into some of the worst genocide and war atrocities since the invention of the cannon. How were they drawn in? Why by citing their enemies as the cause of the failing economy and the decay of society of course. Sound familliar?

    The most vocal (nutcases) of the 60's were a little too into experimentation with the really questionable drugs. The Manson Family, the Jones Massacre, the Simbionese Army, etc. All of these were groups that were more or less totally shunned by even the rest of the social-revolutionaries of the time.

    They, and the second and third commers to Haight Ashbury (Tourist-Hippies) got 90% of the press that wasn't peaceful protests. It was easy for the conservative older generation to assume that even the tame peaceniks were just biding their time.

    Add to this the round of truly over-the-top commune-religions of the seventies and it's a little easier to see how the conservative Christians at the far right would feel that they were a Righteous Island in a sea of perversity. The backlash from that group to all that goofiness is the jackbooted conservatism we're dealing with today. So I suppose in a sense, the very things that made that period so critical to the social maturation of America contributed directly to the puckering of it's conservative anus.

    Between a new "expose" media and all these juicy freakazoids that were more than happy to be on camera it must have seemed that Babylon had come to Jerusalem. Those who lived in the places being reported on (SF, LA, NY State) knew better but the middle of the nation had almost no clue.

    All of this is why it's so easy for conservative extremists to wave the flag, clutch their crucufix and demand a Nazi-esque crackdown. Middle America is unsettled, scared and has been since about 1963.

    The liberals in Germany were being killed years before the Jews and Gypsies were. And gays were hardly free from persecution either.

    Hey, the script's been written. The actors are on standby. The director just needs a funny little moustache and we're ready to call "action!"

    Very strong point.

    Many people are not aware of views and news from outside their state, unless they see or hear a 5 second soundbite on the evening news. I am guilty of this in the past. It took living in Dallas for a year in the time of Gulf War I to realize that not everyone was a registered Democrat, that not everyone can find a job that equals their abilities, and there is life outside of DC Beltway.
