My anger overwhelms me

This article helps me put my anger into words.

The right wing has been fostering terrorism & hatred for far too long.
Think someone is destroying "your" America? Just shoot them.
Are they wrong? Kill them.
Are they different? Bomb them.
Are they not white? Call them animals.
Are they not Christian? Call them godless.
Are they liberal? Call them unamerican.
Are they female? Call them a bitch.
Are they gay? Call them fags and remind them God hates them.
Are they speaking their mind? Call them unpatriotic.
Are they speaking to our sworn enemies? Call them traitors.
Are they Jewish? Call them kikes.
Are they Hindu? Call them rag heads.
Are they immigrant workers? Call them wetbacks.
Are they speaking at all? Shout or shoot them down, then laud your empty victory.

My own nephew was in Washington DC on a school trip the day the terrorist opened fire in the Holocaust Museum. My loved one could have been there that day. Someone else's loved one died instead. My anger is so raw it overwhelms me.

These people are terrorists. Terrorists. Through violence enacting their narrow worldview, through threat and intimidation suppressing dissent. Through acts of personal physical violence they are forcing their agenda. Have they no shame, indeed.

Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, Sarah Palin, Pat Robertson, etc and your followers - I lay this right at your feet.

Thank you so much for the link. I linked it to my facebook, and I find it so disturbing that this tone of hatred is accepted in some circles of our culture.
And I can honestly say I have republican friends that are appalled by all the uber right wing garbage.

Why do you hate America so much?

It's not hate speech if it comes out of the mouths of Christians or Republicans even if it incites violence. That is called free spech. And, it's not terrorism if white Americans do it, especially white people who's views are just a bit further right than your own.
Just tell me the abortion doc's murder and the Holocaust Museum shooting weren't designed to send a message and keep segments of the population afraid.

You are so freaking right.
Well - you are correct, you are not right!

Exactly. The kind of things the far right preaches is so irresponsible and dangerous.

Thanks for that.

How do you know what incited this guy to do what he did? He was sick in the head. He was a terrorist. Now he's a murderer. And more than likely, he's in hell. But to blindly associate his actions with all 'right-wingers' is very naive. It's in the same line of thought as saying all Muslims believe exactly what the Taliban does.

Sorry, not a fantastic first reply to your blog. Just can't keep my mouth shut on this stuff.
