    Today a group of African Americans protested at an Obama rally. I have not seen really any protests at Obama rally’s before now, and it was interesting that it was done by African Americans.

    They had signs, pretty big ones. I don’t know if they snuck them in or what, during the primaries Obama would not let signs in his events. But at this event today he said your signs are ok... a minute later the group was escorted out of the event I am not sure why they had to be escorted out. They held up the signs, Obama made a comment about it then it got quiet and he went back to his speech and then a minute later the group was told to leave. They were about as peaceful of a group as I have ever seen protest, not sure why they had to go.

    I wonder why the news did not really cover it?

    The protesters are part of a group who follows a radical and rather crazy black preacher named Michael Warns. He's sort of a black Fred Phelps, the signs reflect that ...“Obama for abortions”, “Obama for gay marriage” and “Obama endorsed by the KKK. Among other things, Warns claims that Oprah Winfrey is Satan (for real).

    Sorry to burst your bubble but outside of a few religious loonies, there is no significant movement among the black population against Obama. Watch how well Obama handles the disturbance.

    Just knowing they have not all become zombiefied gives me a little hope.

    but why do you think they were removed. Once Obama noticed them and said you can keep your signs, they got quiet and then a minute later they were removed, and even that they did peacefully

    This is not the first time that african americans disrupt his rally. Many of them are pissed at him because his message of hope does not include them. He's only appealing to whites...

    I never thought of it that way, I assumed they were conservatives and did not like him attempting to represent all black people.


    I have listened to a few black people be interviewed and that was their gripe with him.

    not at all.
    america is the land of the free.
    you are free to be a agent of intolerence in america.
    we have them in all flavors of race
    and religion

    that is our strength

    thoes who would allow only "thier brand" of intolerence
    are the true enemy
    to america

    question yourself:
    would allow islamic extreamest in america, as long as they were peacefull ?
    we already allow christian extreamists in america ?

    we let them protest and say any crapola they want...
    as long as they are peacefull and folow the law...

    R I G H T ?

    Sure I would. I think protesting is great. I personally think the left is the one who is intolerant of "other brands, not their own"

    Example... Planned Parenthood prides their selves on choice yet when they wanted to build a new clinic in Texas no construction company wanted the job of laying the foundation. They did not care how much Planned Parenthood was willing to pay the various companies’ refused to lay the foundation.

    Planned Parenthood had a fit and said they were intolerant, but they were just expressing their own views on the clinic. The various construction companies’ were not saying you can not have a building here, they were just saying we don’t want to be a part of it. The construction company's were considered the intolerant ones according to Planned Parenthood and the media.

    Another example… During the 2004 election there were many many anti war rally’s. That is their right and I am all for them having the event. College teachers and some high school teachers here in Oregon told students if they attended the anti war rally's they could count it to their grade and attendance that day. When conservative students said we want to go to the pro troop’s rally's they were told that will not count to their grade and would count as an absence. Those teachers showed their intolerance to "someone else brand, not their own"

    Some schools give Islamic believers excused absences and places to pray but would not do the same for Christian or Jewish faith believers.

    When it comes to Christianity they say there is no room for even a prayer from the speaker of the events. They would never stand up to Islamic believers that way.

    I personally am for all kinds of protests if done in peace but I am not going to pretend that the left is not intolerant.

    These boards are another example. I have read back and just simply lost count on how many times Bush was compared to Hitler. I said Obama was like Hitler and gave some examples and my god you would have thought I had committed blasphemy on the Holy Spirit!

    They tolerate it fine if it goes with their thinking, but if it’s not within their own mind set, they are the first to try and shut down free speech.

    How many people broke in the DNC to try and stop them from going on with their convention? Zero I believe. How many did that to the GOP convention. I can think of 2 but I think its more. Has Messiah ever been heckled at his events to the point he has had to stop speaking? I think NO. Has McCain? Yes!

    I think the sign said kkk supported Obama.

    There was some kkk member who endorsed obama. Not sure why but I think that is what the sign meant. I could be wrong
