Scoot Blog: ?The Majority vs the Haters?

I have said for months now that with the hateful political debate that engulfs America, one side is going to be very angry after the election in November. Some Americans seem to have the impression that only their candidate can win. After every presidential election, there is always one group that is disappointed. The question now is: “How disappointed will they be?”

Last night on our show, a caller asked why I wasn’t spending time talking about the New Black Panther Party threatening the Republican National Convention next week in Tampa. That was the first I heard of the threat, and I follow the news from a variety of sources every day. I did some quick research during the show and did find that a member of the New Black Panther Party said that because of a curfew in Tampa during the convention, the city is “under siege” from white people. This was said during a rant on a fringe black radio show.

In researching ‘threats’ during the upcoming convention, I discovered that the real threat is from anarchists, not a black fringe group that deserves no more credit than a white supremacist group. This morning I learned that a federal law enforcement bulletin is anticipating anti-government anarchist groups to use violence to disrupt both political conventions. I found it interesting that a caller tried to blame a black group for possible violence at the convention when it is actually predominantly white anarchists that pose the biggest threat to both conventions.

Further feeding the hateful tone of the political debate in America is a county judge in Texas who predicts a possible “civil war” if President Obama is re-elected.  Judge Tom Head said on a FOX news affiliate in Texas that if Obama is re-elected, “He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N., and what is going to happen when that happens? I’m thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe.  And we’re not just talking about a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.”

Judge Head is obviously a fringe radical who is using fear to drive Americans to the polls. His statement is reckless, but sadly, many other Americans think the same way…and some of them call or text my show.

It’s time for the majority, and I mean the majority of America, to stand up and denounce the maniacal hatred in this country. WE are bigger than the fringe right or left. WE need to stop being the silent majority. WE need to let the fringe elements know that we are not going to stand for their ignorance-based hatred.

What's this we stuff?
Don't include me with you and your twisted interpretation of what is representative of the majority. There are far more who agree that there are going to be issues if the President is re-elected than not. Just look at the increase in gun ownership, ammunition shortages, etc. Americans are afraid of their government. You are right about one thing though, WE are fed up with the garbage that ALL of our politicians have been handing us for too long. They ALL need to go regardless of party, race or any other grouping you choose. My policy is and has been since i first voted at 18: never vote for an incumbent; one term then go home.

The Majority Are The People!
Not just some too bad the neo libs! Still use hate and division to stay in power! If you disagree with democrats they trot out a black/woman/gay/ and claim you just hate them! When it's the liberals who promote hate!
