Giuliani ad

Um, is it just us, or did Rudy Giuliani’s camp seize upon the strike-induced lull in Hollywood to hire out talent to make what looks and sounds like a Mideast-themed action movie trailer to promote his presidential campaign?  “A religion betrayed ... a nuclear power in chaos ... madmen bent on creating it. ...”  Steven Seagal’s people should take notes from this one.

Giuliani is the essence of a one issue candidate.  All he can hope for is continued unrest in the world to spur his campaign.

I knew that Giuliani was a racist, Islamophobic fraud but this campaign ad of his just amazes me.

No, actually it completely has stunned me.

The idea that this kind of blatant racism is tolerated, even by the mainstream media is just utterly bewildering to me.

This is Fascist propaganda that the Nazis would have been proud of.

There is no secret where the next war will be is there…?
