Join the Fight The Smears Campaign Blogroll..

Mash, from Docstrangelove (Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying) is ready for the upcoming smears and ugly campaign tactics that the McCain supporters and campaign will put out there. The Fight The Smears Campaign blogroll will actively seek to counter all the inundos, smears, out-and-out lies, and other ugliness that seems to have become an accepted lowest common denominator amongst voters and campaigning politicians alike.

Well, no more. Increasingly, voters have and are turning to the internet to investigate if something is true or not. It should become more difficult to 'drop' something into the blogosphere in the hopes for it to grow and spread and stick in people's minds.. WE, the People, have the power to undo all of that. Fight The Smears was started up by the Barack Obama campaign but Mash decided to up the ante.

Join Mash's Fight The Smears Campaign Blogroll and actively seek out to undermine all those supposed bombshells that the GOP will seek to detonate;

This is from Mash's post:

(Today) I am launching the "Fight The Smears" Blogroll. If you have your own blog, I urge you to join us and become part of the blogroll. By doing so, you will be helping spread the truth about Barack Obama while helping push the smears into Google search oblivion. As more people join the Blogroll and add the blogroll to their blogs the more prominent the blogroll will become. So join and do your part in stopping the smears.

To join this blogroll, follow these easy steps:

Write a post on your own blog about fighting smears (much like this one) with an invitation to join this blogroll.
Leave a comment on this post with the URL to your post or send me the URL to the post via my contact page. I will add a link to your post on the blogroll.

Sit back and watch the blogroll grow and the smears disappear from search results.
The "Fight The Smears" website currently debunks the following smears:

Michelle Obama Says “Whitey” On a Tape
Barack Obama’s birth certificate
Barack Obama is a Muslim
Obama’s Books Contain Racially Incendiary Remarks
Barack Obama Won’t Say The Pledge of Allegiance/Won’t Put His Hand Over His Heart

I'm joining up. Are you? Go to Mash's site to copy the code! (I had it up here but it turned into the actual list. I am not that html-savvy to figure out how else to put the code up here since I added the code to my sidebar already!!

Senator Obama is NOT a Dirty Muslim!

"What you won't hear from this campaign or this party is the kind of politics that uses religion as a wedge," says Mr. Obama, while denouncing statements of him being a Muslim as a smear. Why is the presidential candidate who claims to be religiously inclusive is treating the word "Muslim" as an insult? Apparently, it is OK for Mr. Obama to be associated with terrorists like William Ayers or racists like Jeremiah Wright, but God forbid somebody would call him a Muslim! No, he won't stand for that kind of smear! We admit that most terrorists are Muslims, but most Muslims are not terrorists and the statement on Mr. Obama's website is insulting to hundreds of millions of people.

How could a man who discards his family heritage in favor of political expediency be even considered for presidency of the United States? Where are all the so-called "Islamic civil rights groups" like CAIR, MPAC, ISNA, MAS, etc. who are quick to defend every Islamic terrorist, but are silent when Muslims in general are being denigrated? Would Mr. Obama have the same reaction if someone claimed that he was raised as a Jew? We sincerely doubt that.

Muslims Against Sharia demand immediate removal of "SMEAR: Barack Obama is a Muslim" statement from the official Barack Obama's website as well as an apology for giving the word "Muslim" a negative connotation.

No offense but it is pretty obvious why he would say that.. it is used AS a smear which we all know that the dumb dumbs of voters will use to NOT vote for him. It is not a commentary against Muslims or Islam, but a matter of debunking what people are saying about you. If they were to say he was a Jew, there simply wouldn't be an issue UNLESS it was made as such by the opposing candidate. And as I'm sure you will know, that would never happen here in this country where the bias is actually the opposite. Candidates seem to 'have to' be considered as 'pro' in order to get that Jewish voting block..
so no offense, but I think you're over reacting.

"I think you're over reacting"

Are you saying "SMEAR: Barack Obama is a your religion" would not be offensive to you?

As a Westerner, (and I am saying this to you because I've lived in Saudi Arabia AND I've had many different Muslim friends from different parts of the world) it really doesn't matter to me WHAT someone says. You're actually asking the wrong question. Obama is the peace candidate for the whole world in this situation.. why do you think the Republicans are trying to undermine his candidacy by calling him a Muslim? Because they know that a lot of ignorant Americans will associate that with terrorism, 'them', 'those people' etc. The world will be a much better place if Obama is at the helm than someone who has the mindset of waging war indefinitely in the Middle East. Do you want that? I should think not.
I definitely don't.

You are such an idiot! What does this have to do with him insulting Muslims? We are not commenting on his politics, we are commenting on him being a political whore. Some people would eat shit if it comes from a candidate with whose politics they agree. We are not those people.

I could use one of these - for protection from his supporters!! Unlike them however, I am capable of telling the truth!
