Poll: Half Alabama & Mississippi voters think Obama is a Muslim, Over Half dispute Evolution, Significant minorities against Interracial marriage

verbalresistance:

Ceasefire Blog | A poll published today reveals over a fifth of Alabama and nearly a third of Mississippi voters, say interracial marriage should be made illegal - whereas half think Obama is a Muslim, and two thirds do not believe in evolution. Hicham Yezza asks: is it time for humanitarian intervention?

Whatever their views on #Kony 2012, surely Ugandans are grateful to have the attention of the United States, a nation at the absolutely cutting edge of reason (or something)? Indeed, people across the Third World must be delirious with joy at the thought of a US solidly ensconed at the helm of international affairs, protecting the free world from the dangers of Soviet evil, Nelson mandela’s terrorism, Islamic extremism and other obam… sorry.. abominations.

In particular, the world’s non-Americans will no doubt be deeply impressed with – and mightily reassured by – the poll published today by Public Policy Polling, surveying likely voters in both Alabama and Missisipi. You can sample the full details here, but for now, a few delightful snapshots:

ALABAMA

Q22 Do you think Barack Obama is a Christian or a Muslim, or are you not sure?
Christian 14%
Muslim 45%
Not sure 41%

Q23 Do you believe in evolution, or not?
Believe in evolution 26%
Do not 60%
Not sure 13

Q24 Do you think that interracial marriage should be legal or illegal?
Legal 67%
Illegal 21%
Not sure 12%

MISSISSIPPI

Q22 Do you think Barack Obama is a Christian or a Muslim, or are you not sure?
Christian 12%
Muslim 52%
Not sure 36%

Q23 Do you believe in evolution, or not?
Believe in evolution 22%
Do not 66%
Not sure 11%

It’s times like these that make me very, very ashamed to be an Alabamian.

Q24 Do you think that interracial marriage should be legal or illegal?
Legal 54%
Illegal 29%
Not sure 17%

Before you ask, yes, this is a poll conducted this century, which leave us with a simple set of questions: is it time for humanitarian intervention? Can we really afford to have these extremist backwaters festering with ignorance and bigotry? What if they, heaven forbid, got hold of nuclear weapons? Shall Mexico invade and stabilise the failing states? Shall we send in a hundred (or a million) Ugandan teachers? Shall we impose sanctions until a peaceful transition process is in place?

Whatever the solution, the free world must act, fast.

Today, five years ago, a devastating tornado tore through Enterprise, Alabama. It completely destroyed the high school and killed 8 teenagers. This small town in rural Alabama was shaken to the core. My graduating class, Class of 2011, was the first class to graduate from the new Enterprise High School. Today, we remember the people who died, the lives that were affected, and how Enterprise has come a long way since then. I’m proud to be a wildcat

I bet that half of the people complaining about how the SEC has become too overpowering in the current BCS system and how it needs to be changed to a playoff system don’t even know that the SEC tried to convince the BCS to adopt a plus 1 style playoff in 2008 and was rejected by every other conference except for the SEC. 

Hey tigers!

We just beat the hell out of you! Rammer jammer, yellowhammer, give ‘em hell, Alabama! Roll Tide! We’re coming back for you, LSU!

People across the southern United States are trying to use your platform for good, and isn’t that what the internet is all about?
I beg of you, make a 2011 Tornado Outbreak Tag Page so that we can get this information and these stories out to those that use this as their main social media platform.
Or you can sit back and be content with having LOL and Royal Wedding as your top priority, your call…
