Firstly and most importantly your opinions are your opinions and you are totally entitled to have them and to express them. It is your First Amendment right to do so. But when you abuse that right by spreading vicious untruths then it is time for the American public to step in and correct you.
I am having a hard time containing myself right now so we will address this rationally.
A. If you don't like Senator Obama, that is fine you don't have to like everyone. But he is a US Senator and he does deserve your respect.
B. If you don't want to vote for Sen. Obama for President because he is black, I totally get that. And there is nothing he or anyone can do about that.
C. This is where my anger gets the better of me. If you make up lies about Senator Obama, it puts your candidate in between a rock and a hard place by having to speak nicely about his opponent.
D. Senator Obama is not a Muslim.
E. Senator Obama is not an Arab.
F. Senator Obama is not a terrorist
G. To be a Muslim you must commit to the faith of Islam, Senator Obama has committed to the faith of Christianity. Also, even if he were a Muslim why would that make any difference in his ability to run this country? Do we not have freedom of religion in this country? Are you not allowed to be of whatever faith you choose? While I can choose to not follow any organized religion? Would you rpefer we were in a non-free nation where everyone had to be of one faith? Preferably yours? Sorry, the constitution doesn't work that way. And by the way, your candidate, Senator McCain is a strict Constitutionalist (or so he says).
H. To be an Arab you must be a descendant of someone from Saudi Arabia. Senator Obama's father is from Kenya and his mother from Kansas. Last I checked Kenya was a part of Africa and Kansas not too far from you.
I. This is where you might get a bit confused so let me lay it all out on the line for you.
1. Not all Arabs are terrorist
2. Not all Arabs are Muslim
3. Not all terrorists are Arab
4. Not all terrorists are Muslim
5. Not all Muslims are Arabs
6. Not all Muslims are terrorists
J. Is that clear enough for you?
Any other questions?
Below is the interview after the rally that The Uptake did with Ms. Quinnell following the rally, where she admits to spreading untruths about Senator Obama.
