Hatetriotic Americans

I was just remembering how we all laughed and pointed at Glenn Beck when he started his hatefest on the premise that "they surround us." Suddenly I feel more surrounded. Sure they're still a minority but they're so relentless. Today's display of hate is this video of a town hall meeting. The knuckledraggers mock the grandparents of a dead grandchild and his mother and worse:
Catherina Wojtowicz, of Chicago's Mount Greenwood community, an organizer for a Tea Party splinter group, Chicago Tea Party Patriots, falsely claimed that the Houghs fabricated their story. In an e-mail, she called them operatives of President Barack Obama who "go from event to event and (cry) the same story."
The mother died of sepsis related to the pregnancy of the deceased child. She had no health insurance. If she could have afforded better pre-natal care, they both probably would be alive. I feel certain these same people are vehemently against abortion. I'd bet a lot of them self-identify as Christians.

I can't find the words to express my disgust.

When a minority rabble creates this much noise, it means only one thing: They are hellbent on imposing their views by stealth or guile, or by wearing us down until we cave. Nope, can't let this happen.

The grinding repetition is getting to me a little Octopus. Some days I feel like a scratched record on a turntable when the needle gets stuck. But you're right. Nothing to do but keep pushing back.

Records, turntables -- I must be too young to get that.

It's hard to remember that we're not a minority. They seem to be everywhere, shouting and screaming.

That's the thing. They are so effing loud that you forget there aren't really that many of them.
