Some may be voting out of fear, I don't know. I'd hope people would vote based on what they're for, and not out of fear, but regardless. It's not really the same thing. What I'm talking about is the tactic of trying to equate Obama with terrorists in people's minds. It's done by saying he's a Muslim (which he's not and you all should know that
), which plays off the ridiculous fear that some people harbor. It's by the constant use of his middle name, which he doesn't use in everyday life. I don't use my
middle name, and I would think it very odd if people kept using it in reference to me. Yes it's his middle name, but the people that use it continuously in reference to him are doing it as a tactic
, and they can claim they're not, but we all know better.
If he were lying about having been a Muslim, don't you think the Republican Party would have used that information? Don't you think they would have looked for that? You can claim media conspiracy if you want, but that would have been headline news. So are we to believe that even though that never happened, that you all
have cracked the case? Come on
