Above: Rep. Bachmann of Minnesota and her shocking perspective via
the Chris Matthews Hardball show, Oct. 17, 2008. It must be seen to be believed,
and these rogue and dangerous words must be answered!
Above: The Nation Editor Katrina Vanden Heuvel‘s impassioned and resonant response. Brave soul, you inspire us all!
GEOTYPOGRAFIKA CALLS ON ALL MINNESOTANS! ON ALL AMERICANS!
TO ALL FREE-THINKING PEOPLE OF THE WORLD!
We must speak out against this hateful minority NOW. Follow the link here to sign a petition to censure Rep. Bachman. In a time when the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee also alludes to Pro and Anti-American pockets, we must, all of us, immediately speak out against them.
We cannot stay silent and simply witness this hateful direction. Who exactly are the people that will draw the lines of who is who and where and what they are? Will Rep. Bachmann, or people only like her define the good, the bad? Vanden Heuvel is correct, we must fear for our country when such voices emerge.
But this is America, let them come forth and be heard! We will listen to them,
smile knowingly, and then embrace them with the future! We will not let those voices return to our national stage, this is the 21st Century, and it will remain full of hope!
People of the world, this is America. We are fighting for our soul. Help us speak out against these fascist voices. It is not who we are, or what we can become.
Hermanas y hermanos, what we will become!
With everything that I am, and with what I hope will be just one to be heard amongst a sea of small and humble voices, I reject these words of fear and call on Representative Bachmann to renounce such hateful and divisive language.
Representative Bachmann, this is our United States of America, yours and mine, all of us together.
Nuestros Estados Unidos de América!
