I gotta say... I`m usually kinda cynical about IAB posters, it`s usually pretty depressing reading the comments, especially on topics like this.

But other than Quicksand, y`all seem pretty calm/collected/polite and actually interested in seeing another point of view.

...

Wow.

I still don`t get how people are continually justifying 1.) that Obama is Arab, and 2.) that Arab is bad.

Wow, its not funny, because it makes no sense. And wow, your picture shows how little self esteem you have to be putting a celebrity as you. Take your low-life self and shove it.

vv quick_sand "Oblamma, American Islam, first Arab/American, NOT Black, hands folded during the American Anthem blah blah blah"

vv Newlife "We native Americans have worked and suffered hard for this country. We now have all these immagrants coming over and getting on welfare, foodstamps or unemployment blahblahblah"

You know what? When Obama inevitably wins tonight and is your new president, and I ROFLMAO continuously for a period of several hours, it will be Neo-Con, extreme right-wing, borderline fascist wankers like you guys (also others like turtle and yourewinner) who I`m laughing at.

I`m so looking forward to tonight.

"If Oblamma gets elected, they will have their American Islam, since he`d be the first Arab/American, NOT Black, stands with his hands folded during the American Anthem, President."

On Topic: The British public isn`t AS harsh on Muslims, although there`s been a lot of racism since the 7/7 bombings a couple of years ago. Admittedly I used to be against Islam myself, but then I slowly realised that every reason why I hated them was just BS from the daily Mail/Sun. Sadly we have parties like the BNP feeding off the racism, growing in power. Hope they don`t run the country, or else we`ll become another Nazi Germany.

quick sand8, you are the second most idiotic human i know.

there is a litle area south of stockholm named: södertälje. and i tell you this because u clearly dont seem to get the whole picture. södertälje takes in more than double the amount of immigrants from afghanistan than canada and america combined. and all of them had a background check if they needed to escape their homeland or if they had conections with a terrorist group.
and some of them have escaped because of the war you americans have brought them.

i`m sry if any of that insulted any person who have read it throughoutly but thats just how the world is, and i recommend all americans to go c the movie zeitgeist for some more info of what americans should know about
(the thing ive just posted is not mentioned in the film) and if any of u want to know how big södertälje is, try using google maps

I`ve got a relative who`s been suckered up by the whole "terrorist obama!!!11!1one" horsepoo as well.

How can people be so ignorant? This election has cut my Faith-in-humanity by three hundred thousand points. At least.

quicksand: Obama`s father was from Kenya. Kenya is not an Arab country, and it IS in Africa (these, of course, are not mutually exclusive).
But in claiming he is Arab, you are blatantly ignorant and racist, and I`m not sure why his race may cause him let in every "criminal/terrorist/anti American person."

Also, he is not, and never has been a Muslim, and even if he was I`m not sure what the negative exactly is. That`s the point of this video, that you didn`t watch.

Third: What the hell are your talking about letting in criminals and terrorists and anti-Americans? Are you blaming Obama for this if he gets elected? Or maybe it`s already happening and you have documented evidence? Where the hell are they getting zero interest loans and tax breaks?
In case you don`t know what an illegal immigrant is, it`s someone who lives in another country without claiming residence or providing taxes.
Thus, they CAN`T get social security or medical, or own legitimate businesse

@ Newlife;

Now cast your same argument from the voice of an "Actual "Native American," and you should see the problem.

i agree with Quick Sand8.....We native Americans have worked and suffered hard for this country. We now have all these immagrants coming over and getting on welfare, foodstamps or unemployment...who do you think pays for that? THEM?...NO our tax dollars pay for that, so they come over here and use OUR OWN MONEY for them to stay here!!!
You want to have more freedom and a easier life...MAKE CHANGE IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY...don`t come over here and bring down our society and economy.
Another thing: Back in the day (1970-early 90`s), we could have our kids dress up for halloween or any holiday in school....NOW because of all the ppl, we can`t because it offends their religion!!!! what a bunch of BS!!! You don`t like it....MOVE BACK TO YOUR OWN COUNTRY!!!!
At 10:15 he talks about being able to pray in school: WTF!!!....They can but we have to take out "One nation (UNDER GOD)..." from our pledge? When was the last time we were able to openly pray in school? GO BACK!!!!

So, quicksand, you`re saying that of a 11 minute documentary, you got up to 1 minute and a bit, roughly 10%
Congratulations, you`re 90% ignorant.
It funny that you say that "All the Foreign people [...]Get zero interest loans, tax breaks galore!!!!" And who gives them these tax breaks? Themselves? Or perhaps the "American BORN "mom and pop", mostly "pops", in power?
Perhaps if you considered more than a measly 10% of the picture, your remarks wouldn`t seem so dumb...

"what could be described as an American Islam..." that`s where I stopped the tape.. If Oblamma gets elected, they will have their American Islam, since he`d be the first Arab/American, NOT Black, stands with his hands folded during the American Anthem, President. After 9/11?? Sorry, just a tad irritated that America isn`t for "give us your poor, your tired..." it`s let every criminal/terrorist/anti American person in the country, because we like what we see and we`re taking it at whatever cost... I don`t care about Muslim`s in America... All the Foreign people who come here and buy up all the gas stations and motels?? Get zero interest loans, tax breaks galore!!!! While American BORN "mom and pop" businesses get SQUAT!!!! Illegal aliens get free medical, social security benefits, allowed to stay in this country, when over a million BORN Americans can`t afford to go to the doctor...
So I could care less about this story!!!
