Nationwide ‘Hussein’ middle name craze

Nationwide ‘Hussein’ middle name craze

His full name is Barack Hussein Obama. Its a name that his own campaign is trying to downplay, one that skeptics have attacked and now an entire online community of Obama supporters is playing a name game trying to remove the stigma associated with ‘Hussein’. “I think they’re trying to instill terror and fear in the people,” said Obama supporter Gary Hussein Ackerson.

Gary is about as Caucasian as they come.

“I’m a white, Anglo-Saxon protestant,” he said.

But his name isn’t. It’s becoming something of an online phenomenon, thousands of people

nationwide, several right here at home, changing their middle names to support their candidate.

Not only are they changing their cyberspace middle name, in some cases their legal middle name to Hussein.
