Hey college students.. guess what? You're anti-American according to the McCain camp!
To my fellow young people(and all voters), this is an example of why it is so important that we vote on election day. PLEASE PLEASE make sure you cast your ballot. I'll be proudly casting my first vote for Barack Obama.
If you're on a college campus, according to Rep. Michele Bachmann, a surrogate for the McCain camp, you are "anti-american."
When asked by Hardball host Chris Matthews which parts of America are "anti-american" Bachmann had this to say:
"Well, I would say that people who hold anti- American views. I don't think it's geography. I think it's people who don't like America, who detest America. And on college campuses, a Ward Churchill, another college campus, a Bill Ayers, you find people who hate America.
The McCain camp has been stooping to new lows lately. This would be just another example. The whole interview with Rep. Bachmann exhibited an extreme and radical view held by people like the Representative from Minnesota that is dangerous, disgusting, and a view that is itself "anti-American."
You can watch the entire interview with Bachmann below, if you can stomach it.
Katrina vanden Heuvel, co-editor of The Nation summed it up best. "I think what we just heard was a Congresswoman channeling Joe McCarthy" and "There is an extremist..extremism unleashed in this nation which you just heard on this program, which could lead to violence, and hatred, and toxicity, and against the backdrop of the Great Depression we're living through is..could lead, and I don't use this word lightly, to a kind of American fascism which is against the great values of this nation and which people like that are fomenting."
