When Teabaggers Attack Muslims: The Video
I had heard about this ugly event. How when a group of Muslims held an event in Yorba Linda, California, to raise money for a women's shelter and services for the homeless, they had to run a gauntlet of hatred.
A mob of about 200 crazed teabaggers, angry at the presence of two speakers they called "terrorists", turned up and bombarded them with vile insults.
But I didn't realize how ugly and deeply disturbing it was, until this video was released yesterday...
Because I don't care what those rabid teabaggers were protesting against, NOTHING can justify that display of naked hatred.
I think what was most striking about that video is that the presence of small children didn't give these anti-Muslim protesters even momentary pause; they just continued screeching their ugly invective while staring at 4-year-olds walking with their parents. People like that are so overflowing with hatred and resentments that the place where their humanity -- their soul -- is supposed to be has been drowned.
And when these soul destroyed bigots are not attacking Muslims, they're attacking gay people.
Because bullies are bullies, and fascists are fascists.
Damn. I've always hated them eh?
But now I hate them even more...
