People were upset at this commercial. Take a wild guess as to why.

Interesting. I don't understand why people still don't accept interrational relationships. Unbelievable.

Why do people think that Obama is either a Muslim or from outside America? I'm not a fan of him or anything. But I find it rather ridiculous.


Because as I call them "the freak out caucus" can't believe that a black man could be elected president, and they have to try and come up with a reason why it wouldn't be possible.


Obama's not even completely black. His mother is white. 


Some believe that's actually worse.


Sadly things haven't changed much with race and intr-race relationships.


Hah, remember the cheerios debacle not too long ago?


It's primarily the Red States and the "Heartland"/Plains States. You look at the Freak Out Caucus, and it's consists of the states that were in the Confederacy.

Now look at the 2012 electoral map.

Not much difference is there? The plains states are getting more and more isolate, and they're getting older and whiter. Which is why the Freak Out Caucus THRIVES in those states. The South is the same way for the most part. Districts have been heavily gerrymandered to ensure that their constituents are older white people, and they have to reflect their views, which is why many of them come across as being bat **bleep** crazy. They cling to things like states rights and the 10 th Amendment, but it all comes down to the guy in the White House.

I can't believe that commercial created so much trouble. I think the people that claim to say the commercial is racist are the actual racists in the end.

@CaptainAlbator  Wow, I did not notice that comparison with the Civil War and 2012 election maps.

i don't think it's extremely fair to use statistics. while it does offer a somewhat good generalization, it kind of fails on the flaws of the electoral college. nevada, for example, has a much broader range of republicans but districts containing extremely urban settings (primarily carson city and vegas) voted blue overall. if there is anything to be said here, it's that there's a pretty clear line between rural and urban voting habits.

It's a shame to watch America slowly decline in a state of general stupidity because the people who bark the loudest are complete morons. 

 

I think the most offensive thing I've seen come across my wall was a picture of Mr.Rogers holding a gun saying wrong neighborhood mofo. Of course this was on the Glorius Ted Nugent's wall.

 

What irks me about it, is I'm a native Pittsburger and you do not, I mean do not talk ill of Fred Rogers and take anything he did and twist it. It also spread that stupid urban myth that he was a navy seal that killed fitty men so Nugent can push his pro-gun BS in all the wrong ways.

It makes it worse when people think that individuals like Nugent represent all gun enthusiasts. I dont own a gun myself but I know some who do and none act remotely like than that overgrown monkey. I swear my little nephew would have more common sense than that idiot.
