The other day I showed a few photos from Halloween displays and asked whether hanging displys were racist or just hatefilled.
One of the displays I showed on October 24, 2008, was of a mannequin dressed to look like Sarah Palin, hanging from a rope.
Another one was of a black man hanging.
Today I see a report about the Sarah Hanging Display and the comparison in reactions between the two displays is astounding when you think of it.
Here is the Sarah display:
Here is the other display:
Now let us take a look at the reactions for comparison.
Greenfield, Wisconsin where the black mannequin was displayed, hanging, over a graveyard scene:
A dark mannequin figure was hanging from a tree in front of a Greenfield home. Some members of the African-American community complained it was insensitive and had racial overtones.
West Hollywood, California, where the Hanging Sarah display is:
A Halloween decoration showing a mannequin dressed as vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin hanging by a noose from the roof of a West Hollywood home is drawing giggles from some passers-by and gasps of outrage from others.
So one display was removed because some people found it "racially offensive" and the other figure is simply the "spirit of Halloween."
Anyone else seeing an incredible double standard here?
Is one more offensive than the other?

Many might remember the disgusting actions of the Berkeley city council when they tried to call the US Marines unwelcome and unwanted in the town of Berkeley, to which cause a firestorm of support to show up, enmasse, for the Marines until the Council decided to rescind and reword their resolution.
Another cancer in Berkeley was the Code Pink as they harassed the Marine recruiting office, chaining themselves to the doors, vandalizing their building and spewing their venomous hatred, trying to force the Marines to leave, again, they failed as more support showed up for the Marines.
Melanie Morgan, Chairman of the pro-troop organization Move America Forward sent me an email showing that the Code Pinkos of Berkeley are leaving!!!!!!
This is what I call good news to awaken to on a Monday morning!!!
Thanks to Melanie, Move America Forward, every veteran, family member and friend that showed up in support of the U.S. Marines in Berkeley for everything they did and their consistent show of patriotism.
To the Code Pink chapter in Berkeley- Good riddance to bad rubbish!

Update II: For those in the comments saying only Republicans care about redistrubtion of wealth, and that the poor folks who will vote for Obama want it and we are only helping Obama by exposing him as a marxist....Americans Oppose Redistributing Wealth 84% To 13%!
Update: People in the comments are asking for the original source, skeptical of the editing on this clip. Listen to it for yourself, he said what he said...no creative editing or missing context. Here is the original. Oh, and while you are at it, here is another clip of Obama stating that the Constitution is a flawed document.
For everyone that thought Obama was taken out of context, listen very closely. In a 2001 Chicago Public Radio Interview Obama is discussing the best way to bring about a Redistribution of Wealth.
If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court. I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote. I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order as long as I could pay for it I'd be o.k. But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can't do to you. Says what the Federal government can't do to you, but doesn't say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn't shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendancy to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that.
I'm not optimistic about bringing about major redistributive change through the courts. You know, the institution just isn't structured that way.
Jeff Goldstein summarizes:
In Obama's America, we'll finally be able to break free of the "constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution" — and in so doing, achieve "social justice" through "redistributive change."
McCain should take these clips and run with them. If he highlights them the media will be forced to play them, and Obama will be pressured as well.
Update: Humorous, but scary and appropriately on topic. Will this be the new National Anthem?

I have been saying this for years and folks just laughed and some just laughed it off. Some said that this too shall pass. To me, those that laughed for whatever reason are still in a state of insanity due to their purposeful neglect.
Recently, J.R. Dunn wrote a column entitled, "Democide". In that piece, in part:
"Over the past fifty years, something on the order of a half-million Americans have been killed by liberal policies."Most of you that know me know that I am undertaking a project that proves the above beyond a reasonable doubt. The proponents of American Liberalism, no matter their stature in life and position are directly responsible for not only killing millions dying of Malaria, they have murdered entire generations of "voters"...they died of abortion. They are directly responsible for the deaths and wounding of American and Allied Forces in several wars and Police Actions, Iraq and Afghanistan being in the present tense.
I loathe them all. They disgust me. They cannot be trusted. Their ideologies have been attempted in many Nations and those principles of which they stand resulted in entire populations to be enslaved to the governments under which they lived and live and those governments have failed time and time again. Their system does not work. Period. It never has and it never will. Slavery - that is what the Democrat Party of the USA is all about. A historical search will bear that out, especially before, during and after the American Civil War.
But, that won't stop them. It is all about Power to these people. Nothing else matters. If our Troops are killed, maimed or wounded, they could care less. I have seen it first hand. If they can enslave the American Population, the more Power they will have.
Barack Obama is the Shining Example of the Culture of Death. He supports infanticide, no matter how he tries to spin it. He voted FOR infanticide and that is a matter of public record. He and his Goons can deny it all they want to...facts are facts and the record is the record. SPIN THAT.
The Vatican has declared the American Democrat Party as the Culture of Death. Joe Biden has been practically excommunicated from The Church. Nancy Pelosi was heavily and handily chastised by her Archbishop over her rewriting Vatican principles and history. Nancy now knows that history didn't start the day she was hatched.
The American Democrat Party is directly responsible for the MILLIONS of deaths following their cowardly retreat from Vietnam. They are directly responsible for American deaths in Vietnam. That is a historical fact. They can deny all they want to and spin as much as they want to but I bet they have a hard time explaining it all when the demons come.
[...] It will come as no news to readers of this site that liberal policies tend to fail. But some of them fail catastrophically. And when they do, they kill. They kill in large numbers. They have been killing for decades, and they will continue to kill for as long as we allow it.We can stop it and we can change things but we have to actually ACT and DO something and hopefully, we do it via the ballot box and getting our Vertical Alignment all squared away with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

The Democrat Party is falling apart but one would not know that reading the Lame Stream Media. However, those of us that comprise the Main Street Media are hearing a different song. It is the Death Knell Dirge of the DNC.
Barack Hussein Obama did Hillary wrong and she isn't about to forget or forgive, no matter the public appearances of both Hillary and Bill and their subsequent rhetoric in support of Obama. If anyone truly believes that the Clinton's are supporting Obama, they are certainly lost in space.
When I was building the blog for the Stop Her Now Campaign, called the Hot Rodham Blog, we spent hours and hours and hours researching the Clinton Clan and we got to know them very well. They are not about to forgive or forget the railroading they received from the DNC leadership, George Soros or Barack Hussein Obama. Not by a long shot. The Democrat Convention was a sure-fire give-away.
Please recall that when Hillary saw that she was going to walk away from the Convention with the nomination, The Big Nod, she realized what that would mean. I have to give her credit. She quickly went to a microphone and asked to not have the usual voting procedures, thus bypassing what was to come. When reviewing the videos, one can hear a vast majority booing her decision. Nancy Pelosi was quick to ask for those that approve and not once did she allow for those that did not approve to have their say. That is a typical maneuver of the Party of Intolerance...if you disagree, you have no say.
We saw decades of Identity Politics come crashing down and the rift is growing. However, don't believe me. Believe this; from the American Thinker, Steven M. Warshawsky brings us the following: Signs Pointing To A McCain Victory
[...] This is the "narrative" that the mainstream media has been imposing on this year's presidential campaign almost from the start. Remember how quickly the MSM jumped off the Hillary Clinton bandwagon and onto Obama's? Remember how annoyed and angry they became as Hillary refused to concede the nomination? The MSM decided that electing the nation's first black, socialist, anti-American president was politically and historically more important (and, for them, more exciting) than electing the nation's first female, socialist, patriotic president. And they are doing everything they can to achieve this goal.By now, all we have been hearing of late is the "rift" between McCain and Palin. This is near laughable but mostly ignorant. The morphing of the stories are woefully skewed with the wishful thinking more than obvious. Just remember, that which happens to or is caused by the DNC that can be "bad news" is quickly shrugged off somewhere else. It is their trademark.
Another thing that the pollsters are "forgetting" is the Joe The Plumber voters. Another aspect is the NRA. Another aspect is the Angry White Man. Most everyone with half a brain can see the race baiting going on by Barack in that 90 to 95 percent of the "African-Americans" are voting for Barack BECAUSE he is black and ONLY because he is black, even though he is NEITHER black or white. He is a fraud and come election day, the fraud will not be victorious.
If there is any election racism in this nation it is on the part of the black community as stirred up by Obama, Sharpton and Jackson. That much is plainly obvious.
More at Memeorandum...the laughs I got from there are truly spirit lifting...

If you look back over the last several articles posted here at Radarsite they all have one thing in common: they are all expressing the author's shock and awe. Shock that we can actually be this close to real disaster; and awe at the enormity of the forces pushes us toward this end. Nothing, I repeat, nothing, that we can do or say seems capable of altering this fateful plunge.
We, all of us writers and bloggers, have tried absolutely everything. We have enumerated scandal after scandal, all to no avail. We have tried but we can't do it. We cannot break out of this iron shell of denial, deceit and disinformation. It has become all too apparent now that we, the writers, are not going to be able to stop this rush to national ruin. Our only hope now lies with the people. All those regular people out there who may have never read a political blog or studied the Koran. All those people whose only access to the news and opinion has come from their regular in-the-tank-leftist media. These are the only people who can save us now. These good everyday people are our very last hope.
But thankfully, there is some precedent for this hope in our shared history. There have indeed been times when the people have spoken and the polls and the pundits were monumentally discredited and humiliated. It can happen. And it can happen again if these American voters sense something amiss, something in a candidate that just doesn't add up, some vague feelings of distrust or unarticulated suspicion that give them just enough pause to hold back that precious vote.
There is an unknown and unquantifiable element in the American psyche perhaps best characterized as good old-fashioned Yankee common sense. The pundits of course despise this notion. Because if it is true, it negates all of their profound pronouncements and their erudite predictions. It brings into question everything they have built their reputations on.
As much as I loathe the thought of it, I predict that nothing that any writer could possibly come out with in this next week will make a damn bit of difference to those poll numbers. Nothing. No matter how terrible or bizarre.
But on that one day, that one particular Tuesday, the American people will speak and what they might actually say could still shock the world. - rg

Some real class by Barack Obama supporters.....the pictures say it all.
Language alert in spray painted messages on homes and other places.
More photos found at BVLI.
Twenty-five residents of a Gainesville neighborhood woke up this morning to discover their homes had been spray-painted with an obscene comment about the 2008 presidential race. Several businesses were hit as well.
Stay classy Obamabots!!!!!

In the last three days, Barack Obama's 12 point lead has dropped to five points and according to pollster John Zogby "Things are trending back for McCain. His numbers are rising and Obama's are dropping on a daily basis. There seems to be a direct correlation between this and McCain talking about the economy."
Obama's lead among voters making less than $35,000 per year remains substantial at a little over 70 percent. But McCain, who had previously scored well only with the highest income brackets, now holds slight leads among voters in all income groups starting at $35,000 and above.
This type of drop for Obama and rise for McCain over the last week might be one reason why John McCain feels confident enough to "guarantee victory" in his latest interview with NBC's "Meet the Press".
