Greater Wingnuttery VII 2

And I thought H. P. Lovecraft crafted craziness.

Wingnuts make Cthulu seem like a marshmallow and Nyarlathothep, a boy scout.

The Booman on the murder of the policemen in PIttsburgh:

We keep saying it can’t happen here, that we will never see a movement among certain members of our society to kill fellow Americans simply because of their political beliefs or status “government employees” or immigrants, or gays, or blacks, etc. We keep saying this country is not like Cambodia, or Rwanda, or other places where mass violence has erupted because of the hateful propaganda preached by a few power mad demagogues. And yet . . .

And yet these deadly incidents keep happening. And evil media clowns like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and even politicians like Michelle Bachmann keep screaming their twisted diatribes of hate over the airwaves, ratcheting up their deceitful, mendacious and dangerous rhetoric to levels we haven’t seen since the days when the Klu Klux Klan dominated vast regions of this country in the twenties and thirties. Days when lynchings were common. Nor do we need to look that far back. It was only 14 years ago, during the administration of another centrist Democratic President that we suffered the worst act of domestic terrorism perpetrated by another crazy bastard who swallowed the far right lies hook line and sinker: a bastard named Timothy McVeigh.

It embarrasses and shames me that the people who do this stuff almost always loudly proclaim themselves to be “true Americans” and “Christians.”

It should embarrass and shame us all, American or not, Christian or not, who understand either the ideals of America, the ideals of Christianity, or both.

End the politics of hate.
