Video: Romney supporters uncensored in Denver yesterday

(Attention potential tourists: NOT representative of most Coloradans – promoted by Colorado Pols)



Updated: FOX 31 reports.

On Tuesday morning, the group posted the four-minute video on YouTube, in which dozens of Republicans pass by cardboard Obama and, in a few cases, can’t help but hurl less-than-politically correct comments its way. You can watch the video below.

“Go back to Kenya!” one person says.

“Strangle him!” says another.

Some of the comments were directed at the ProgressNow staffers holding up the cut-out and the video camera.

“Is that your Muslim communist buddy?” one person asks.

“Why are you supporting an Islamist, Marxist idiot?” asks another.

ProgressNow Colorado sent a camera and a cardboard cutout of President Obama – just the cutout, no other provocation – into the line for yesterday’s Mitt Romney rally at Wings over the Rockies Air Museum. Reactions from the right-wing crowd were memorable to say the least.

    I’d say about half were cordial, making some minor jokr or something.

    The OTHER half, however, were just spewing the propaganda of the right.  ”Obama Phones,” muslim, etc.  And about half of them were angry in their responses.

    Yessir, love that tolerance.

    Notice all the minorities walking in?

  2. BlueCat says:

    did say Romney wasn’t going to get the “smart” vote.

  3. Old Time Dem says:

    that the rally was led in a rendition of “Dixie” by Laurie Morgan?

  4. ClubTwitty says:

    and 100 – 47 = 52?

    Hail Ceaser?

    but on most of the Western Slope, particularly in Mesa, Montrose and Delta counties, it’s by far the dominant opinion. Waiting rooms with TVs are tuned to Faux News, radios to the Fat One and blathering Hannity.

    Dissenters are ostracized if discovered. It is not a pretty sight. The heavy majority of people living in Grand Junction and environs think the Sentinel is a left-wing rag.

    ‘Nuff said.

    Some people (me) have said nasty things about W, aka the village idiot. What is amazing is how many of these Romnybots can’t keep their mouths shut when there is a camera in their face. The cut out is obviously a provocation. Why would you share your stupid jokes (Obama phones, hail Caesar, etc.) with the internet? Most of them seem to understand that, but there are always a few that can’t help themselves.

    Obama can handle it he’s tough, but after watching the president answer a question from a young african american 4th grader “Why do people hate you?” with obvious distress, I wish people would think about the impact of their vitriol on kids.

    “…Don’t you have a problem with Obama’s socialism?”

    He was a really nice guy, too. But he absolutely believed Obama is a socialist. I don’t think I won a vote for my candidate by saying that I have a problem with Obama’s reluctance to embrace certain aspects of socialism that could benefit the country as a whole.

    Can someone explain this to me please? First I’ve heard of it……..

    does the fact my tv is never on Faux have anything to do with my ignorance? ;)

      I sat through a half hour of Fox Noise at the GJ airport last week. I eventually had to get up and move to where I couldn’t hear the TV. I was growing more and more unable to resist standing up and yelling at the tube and explaining to the crowd what a pack of lies they were hearing…

      but since I was in Grand Junction…and because I am a slave to politeness…I just quietly moved elsewhere.

      The Obama-phone thing is just another rightie lie. It is a program designed to help lower income people find a job, created during the Bush administration, if I am not mistaken.

    What would be the response of White People if there was an Obama rally in Los Angeles, NYC, Detriot or any inner city with NOTHING BUT BLACK PEOPLE and they all walked by a cut out of Romney saying things like, “we should take target practice”, “is that your Mormon corparate raider”, “Did you get your Ronmey gun”, etc.

    Tell me how fast FOX News would be calling out the militia to take up guns against us and protect yourselves…

    Does the Right really want a race war?

  12. Barron X says:

    either that, or this took place outside the cordoned-off security envelope.

    otherwise, the video would have shown the Romney Colorado campaign manager screaming at the local police to arrest those with the cutout and the camera, as happened to me at an earlier Romney event where I had a hand-made sign asking him to support the Constitution.

    But at least I wasn’t assaulted by campaign volunteers, like at the Obama event at Colorado College, where my sign simply said “Bowe Bergdahl.”
