Heh, Obama 2012... not because you`ll get a good president but because he drives the Republicans out of their tiny little minds. If you`re going to get screwed either way, go with the option that will be the most amusing! You`re not going to get this level of hilarity out of Romney presidency, he`s just going to be a boring ass. Nutcases screaming "Jesus Christ is Lord!" at a fund raiser, that`s what you want to see on the internet. Admit it and vote Obama in 2012.

Ugh... the evidence that an anti-christ will ever exist is the weakest piece of poo ever... on top of the existence of an ACTUAL divine Christ, which is also weak. How this even gets into political discourse at all in this country drating beats me... And people will actually defend him. Hey non-nice individuals, even if you don`t like Obama, drating call this guy out. He`s making you look like dumb zealous pieces of poo.

@Ruffiana it`s because they`re scared that they`re wrong. If the end times happens during their lifetime, they don`t have to worry about being right, because they`d definitely be right.

@Khronnus, why? Does Obama need defending from someone calling him the anti-christ?

The point you miss in your simplistic view is that the heckler has his own twisted reason for calling Obama the anti-christ. By chanting him down and carting him away, we lose another opportunity to confront the crazy. Giving this nutcase his 15 minutes would only help society ridicule others that share his view. In the eyes of the crazy, the treatment of this heckler just serves to reinforce their views.

This guy now gets to go home and tell his war story about how he told it to Obama before he was silenced by some global conspiracy.

The alternate history could have been Obama stopping to ask him why he feels that way and then pwning him. Then this heckler would crawl back to the ridicule of his friends. The airing of it on the news would mean other crazies would share in the ridicule.

When I was in high-school my parents truly and honestly believed that Bill Clinton was the anti-christ. Seems that whenever a Democrat is in charge, the fundamentalists will hone in on them as being the anti-christ.

People really want the anti-christ and end-times/revelations to happen during their lifetime for some reason. The older you get, the more you`re likely to believe that your time is the end-time.

Lets not forget that George W. Bush never won a presidential election in the United States. He was appointed by the supreme court in 2000 and rigged the election with Diebold equipment in Ohio in 2004. So mocking him was completely justified even patriotic.

@CrakrJak: "Us republicans were saying the same thing 4 years ago, about GW Bush. There were far more heckling incidents against GW Bush and all we heard from the left was "Free Speach!, Free Speach!".

So since your guy is now getting the same heckling, I will answer the way your people did, "Free Speach!, Free Speach!"."

No, when GW Bush got heckled, just the morons on the left, not all of them, were screaming "free speech" just like just the morons on the right are screaming "free speech" now.

NottaSpy. Shut up, seriously. They out chanted him. He wasn`t arguing, or debating something. He was ranting utter bullpoo that really wasn`t supposed to be at a fundraiser. And it`s ver4y obvious why they did it. They were defending Obama, he was just called the anti-christ.

This heckler sounds a lot like he might come from the same background that Frank Schaeffer describes as his upbringing. Wacko wacko nutbags, for example he writes about how his mother thought JFK was the antichrist and worried constantly after his assassination about his rising from the dead to rule the world, because Revelation apparently says something about "The Beast" getting a head wound and coming back from it.

Yeah, those people exist.

As I understand it, the anti-christ will be charasmatic and gain great popularity by getting the government moving and getting things done.

Obama can`t be the anti-christ `cause he can`t get poo done.

That`s just sad.

Also, for the whole idiocy about Obama being "anti-American," you could make a better case that the rightwing/Tea Party fringe has more "broad opposition or hostility to the people, policies, culture or government of the United States."

People? Urban and/or coastal populations are despised liberal elites. Policies? Social Security, Medicare, century-old industrial regulation and labor protections are all targeted for repeal. Culture? Attempts to legislate morality are conservative SOP. Government? Please....They want to drown it in a bathtub.

And I`m sure you read all the comments around mine that were saying the same thing so you knew that is what I was talking about. I must have hit a nerve because you changed the subject.

@AJ, The world is moving. Move with it or get left behind. America CANNOT stay insular and self-dependant any more as other countries are biting at their heels.

Much of America has the self-righteous attitude that us Brits had 100 or so years ago, we thought we were the most powerful country in the world, we believed ourselves superior to lesser nations and held our heads over them. We were wrong. As will you be in time.

America needs a PROGRESSIVE government that will change the country or it will collapse.

@simbha: Yep they are everywhere, but America is too powerful and dangerous to let extremists have too much say under a democracy. If extreamists like this start to win over too many people and get the wrong people in power for stupid reasons, that is not good for anyone.

Maybe it is just as simple as requiring national media to keep a more neutral postion in politics and only report on facts, not lies / beliefs / extream exaggerations. They can lean more one way then the other to suit their viewers, but within limits. That is how our media is and we have far less extreamist issues.

Fine. His social policy promotes a "What can my government do for me" attitude. His economic policy promotes the "dependence on the state" structure.

Both of these things are the opposite of what America has stood for over time.

@auburnjunky: To quote the Wikipedia article to which you linked...

[quote]Discussions on anti-Americanism have in most cases lacked a precise definition of what the sentiment entails (other than a general disfavor), which has led to the term being used broadly and in an impressionistic manner, resulting in the inexact impressions of the many expressions described as anti-American.[/quote]

So, again I ask you: What, exactly, is `Anti-Americanism`? To answer, please provide a specific definition about what `American` means.

@SmagBoy1: Well, I`ve lived or had extended stays in eighteen countries and, while I understand that your view is an oft-held one (and, quite regularly, valid), I also haven`t seen that among the general populace as a whole in these other countries.

But, my point was not that. I was simply saying that the US`s exportation of its own culture and news is so prominent that its extremes become more apparent to others. I can see that you may interpret that - combined with your own statement - to mean that Americans are simply unaware of the extremes in other countries, which may be true too.

simbha, I think you may be mistaken. Other countries, in general, are a lot more aware of the WHOLE world than we in the US are. We`re very self-focused here. It`s amazing to talk to someone in Germany or Canada or the UK and hear them speak intelligently about the policies and concerns of several countries/regions around the world. They have a much better understanding of world government and influences as a whole.

We`re very insular here in the US. I would agree, though, that it`s our media, and our focused consumption of it, versus the seeking out the media of other countries, that makes us so. Ultimately, though, it`s on us.

@SmagBoy1: I think some of what you`re arguing against is fueled by `news` media which, required to provide 24-hour news coverage by their own business model, fills in broadcast time-slots with opinion pieces disguised as objective news and analysis.

And, yes, I agree that it spans the political spectrum.

I would love to see political discourse in our country that didn`t involve charges of someone beign a "secret muslim", "anti-Christ", "socialist", "not-born-here foreigner", "white-supremist", "racist", etc.

And I aim that desire at both parties and the supporters of both parties. Of course, being a member of one party/viewpoint, I certainly think the party I`m not a member of is a lot *more* guilty of this sort of thing, but, I`m willing to admit that mine may be a biased view. :-)

So, how about civility? That means watching less cable news, reading more opposing views written by thinkers and doers, not those trying to incite emotion to sell books or TV shows. It means trying to understand positions/concerns versus buzz words and sound bites, etc. Am I asking too much? Probably.

@Evil_Eye: I agree with your basic point, but I think such people (ideological extremists) are present in every country.

The difference for the US is that both its good things and its bad things are distributed globally (more so than perhaps any other country) through the worldwide media; this makes the extremes in the US even more noticeable.

For every person that makes a good and valid point of disliking Obama, there is four people no better then this with cries of "Muslim", "Anti-Christian", "Not American", "Anti-American" and ethnic slurs.

But imo religion has NO place in politics. I`d have preferred if Obama hadn`t confirmed that he was a Christian.

I don`t care what religion a politician is as long as they do a decent job, but I don`t want any religious claptrap to come out of their mouths.
