As I have written, I have spent most of my blog time on various boards and forums on the Internet, trying to engage in dialogue in support of Senator Barack Obama's candidacy.
One type of poster that has truly annoyed me, but is not worth the time to individually respond to, is the one who plays the old GOP fear game when they attack Obama.
I have come up with a way to respond to these trolls. Introducing my new RNC fear alert, which can now be cut and pasted to respond to that type of unsavory attack, underscore the GOP strategy involved, and cut the teeth out of any of the charges.
Feel free to come up with your own variation of the warning for yourselves, or use mine if you'd like.
Note: (made a couple of improvements suggested by 'anonymous' poster in my comments section. The additional text appears in boldface)
***WARNING: RNC FEAR ALERT***
This poster has just followed RNC orders to
spread fear and panic about a possible Obama
presidency. No facts or persuasive arguments
were used, just a doomsday message designed
to appeal to your emotions and scare you.
If this had been an actual posting by a person
with reason, it would have been supported by
logic and rationale behind their nebulous charges,
and a response would appear here -- supported by
facts and logical analysis.
As it is, you are invited to simply ignore it and
move on, as we have done.
This concludes our RNC fear alert. We now return
to our regularly scheduled discussion.
