ACTUALLY.........I'm really disappointed in myself for even reading this appalling article that was posted by ThinkProgress this morning. There was a gathering of approximately 75 Nevadans to watch the debate on October 15.  Nothing wrong with that, huh? Wrong!!  In my opinion none of these party-goers had the slightest interest in the debate.  In my opinion these 75 people are the most anti-American creatures I have ever heard of.

The first comment was from a person who said Obama cannot speak English, and that he wanted Americans in Benghazi to die, and hoped America will be taken over by the Islamic world.  This person further went on to say that Obama carries a literal Communist Party card, and should be sent back to Mexico.  (How Mexico got into this I have no idea.) 

Boos were heard when Obama took the stage and one women shouted "He doesn't speak English!" Nearly every time Obama spoke thereafter, jeers erupted.  At times their anger turned to the audience, who supposedly contained "Democratic plants".  And yes, Candy Crowley wasn't left out of their rude remarks either.  When the discussion turned to the four Americans who were recently killed in Benghazi, a man said "Obama wanted them dead. They were ordered not to have loaded weapons", he said parroting a widely debunked claim.  When the conversation got to the Assault Weapon Ban and the president proclaimed his respect for the 2nd Amendment, the man yelled "Tomorrow we run to the gun store". Some more horrendous remarks:
  • "Did you notice the Muslim Islamic marriage inscription on Obama's wedding ring. He got it when he was 16 from the Islamic church.  Michelle doesn't have that because she's not Muslim."
  • "Obama wants America to go broke, because he doesn't want America to succeed.  He wants America to be taken over by the Islamic world".
  • Did you know his grandmother, his mother Michelle and him are all card-carrying members of the Communist Party?  We've got copies of their cards and numbers". 
  • When asked what websites to visit to learn more go to a birther-haven whose editor has blamed natural disasters on the growing acceptance of homosexuality."
I am not naive enough to think that everyone who lives in this country are upstanding citizens, but I am ashamed for those who don't know just how fortunate they are to live in the U.S.  I also hope that these horrendous, hideous, offensive people have some remorse for what they think and say.  I can only imagine the misery and unhappiness they must have in their miserable lives to think, feel and say the things that were said at this debate party.  Not only did they disrespect the President of the United States, but they dishonored the office of the Presidency of these United States. Thank you ThinkProgress, for publishing this article and opening my eyes a little wider to those who live around us.
