Alexandra Pelosi’s awesome documentary – “Right America; Feeling Wronged” debuts on HBO


I caught Alexandra Pelosi’s fantastic documentary on HBO tonight.  Its calling “Right America: Feeling Wronged” which tracks the emotions of conservatives as Pelosi followed the McCain camapign through 28 states.  The racism, anger, and ignorance is stunning.

You’ll have to wade through a bit of the Rachel Maddow show to get to some clips from the show, but I’m sure you won’t mind.

    I watched it in disbelief. I can understand the disagreement with Obama over policy or ideology.

    I didn’t understand the comparisons to Hitler or even better the claims of him being the anti-christ.

    I’m thinking there is something in those folks water.

    This woman is biased and i think they should do a documentary that is biased towards Mccain bc that is only fair. People are so ignorant and they honestly sound like a bunch of white trash dumbasses. Do they know how stupid and racist they sound? I mean, i am embarrassed to live in the same country as these ignorant people do. I am shocked with the outrageous comparisons they had. I am also upset that parents are pushing their ignorance and racism onto their children. How can we eliminate racism and inequality when we have parents teaching their children through example that it’s ok? It’s okay to disagree with Obama due to his political stance but dont vote for someone based on the color of their skin. I hope that Obama does great in office because maybe some of these ignorant racist pigs will learn something. Change is something that needs to be done in this country or we will never improve in any aspect of our daily lives.

    My problem with this film is that it contends ignorance is a Right-only problem, and every person on the Right is as ignorant or naive as this. How about the numerous black Americans who commented–after prompting, (much as the people were in this film)–that they would vote for Barack Obama and agreed with his VP pick: Sarah Palin, or that they supported his pro-life stance? (All heard on the Howard Stern Show). What I mean to say is, put the shoe on the other foot. I’m sure if I were a pretty young woman and headed to Berkeley with a camera and some clever prodding, I could get five dozen people to admit they think George W. Bush ordered 9/11.

    This documentary is no more biased against conservatives than John Zieglar’s Obama/election documentary was biased against lefties.

    Pelosi lets these people rambleon; she gives a guy a chance to change his statement whewn he says Obama is the anti-Christ and they guy wouldn’t….

    I liked the hayseeds who said they would move out to Canada because they believed Obama was too socialist.

    The irony just dripped off that one.

    I think it’s sad when we take pleasure in the ignorance or fear of others. I am heartened however by the opinions that Alexandra Pelosi showed toward the subjects in her movie. She actually articulated a heart felt empathy toward them. And she was blown off by the host, Rachel Maddow. That’s something that seems to be lacking in most of us as we express our opinions about others who believe differently. If we could all show that level of understanding it would be a much better world. At the end of the day, isn’t that what we all want?
    You want change, be that change you want to see in the world, lead by example.

    I hope that she just didn’t pick people that have no substance in why they were against Obama. A lot of people who were against him weren’t for the petty reasons of race and other unimportant issues.
