Clearly There Is Nothing More Unamerican Than Using Greek Style Architecture

By Oliver Wills


Invesco Field Venue

Lincoln Memorial

Jefferson Memorial

The National Archives (Home of the US Constitution and Declaration Of Independence)

I tell you, anyone who ever uses Greek style columns clearly hates America. This election is about the people versus the powerful… media.


They Are Mocking America And Its History

The Jed Report

So here's the context:

Later today, Barack Obama will speak before a crowd of 75,000 at Denver's Invesco Field to accept the Democratic nomination for the presidency of the United States of America.

Meanwhile, tomorrow, John McCain will announce his VP at a rally in Dayton, Ohio. He still hasn't been able to give fill all of the 10,000 seats available at his venue, even though it's his 72nd birthday.

So how does the McCain campaign respond? Instead of recognizing the huge difference between Barack Obama's historic nomination and his absolutely typical selection of a VP, McCain and his Republican supporters have decided to mock the stagecraft of Barack Obama's speech.

What petty, childish, worthless human beings.

What disgusting pigs.

No matter who you support this November, today is a great and proud moment for the United States of America. For the first time in our nation's history, an African American will be a major party's nominee and will have have a very real chance of being elected President.

And this is how they respond? Their contempt for America and its history shows no limits.

No matter what they say, the obvious historical and architectural inspiration for Barack Obama's stage is the Lincoln Memorial and The White House. Yes, the very same Lincoln Memorial where 45 years ago today Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his "I have a dream" speech. Yes, the very same White House that has housed every President of the United States since John Adams in 1801.

If they don't understand these cultural references, then it is their own ignorance that they are putting on display. These people wrap themselves in the flag, bludgeon their fellow citizens with the club of patriotism, but cannot see an obvious reference to the architectural tradition embodied in two of our nation's most important landmarks.

What complete jokes these people are.

As for the Democrats who react defensively to these shockingly unpatriotic and un-American attacks, have they not learned that Republicans will attack us for anything and everything we do? Have they not learned there is no use in trying appease these monsters? The only way to deal with the Republican attack machine is to be true to ourselves, and to be faithful to our country. We know the Republicans will lie. We know they they will put themselves and their interests first.

So we cannot let them tell us how we should behave. And in fact, they have no standing to speak.

The same goes for reporters who dutifully transcribe the GOP lines, lines that they no doubt think are witty. Today is a day for history. Today is not a day for politics as usual. Today, they should rise above the normal.

That John McCain embraces these attacks put lie to his claim to put country first. By refusing to recognize the the significance of Barack Obama's nomination today, by placing his own political interests first, he is putting himself ahead of country.

It is time for these people to sit down and shut up. They already have done enough damage to our country and this world.

We do not need them. We do not want them. They have been in power too long. They must be relieved of it.

They will be relieved of it.
