I meet you all the time. You hate Obama. You hate gay people. You hate black people, immigrants, Muslims, labor unions, women who want the right to make choices concerning their bodies.  You hate socialism and social justice. You hate regulations, taxes, spending, and the Government.  You demonize everyone who is not a rich, white, heterosexual, or submissive and obedient wife.  You hate liberals, moderates, hell, anyone who disagrees with Conservative dogma as espoused by Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.  You hate us more than you love your country.  You hate gay soldiers more than you want America to win its wars.  I don't even think you want America to win wars, you just want America to have wars, never ending wars and the war profiteering it generates. You love that kind of spending, you love spending on faith based initiatives and abstinence based sex education (George Carlin would have loved that one), you love spending on subsidies for profitable oil corporations, you spend like drunken sailors when you are in the White House, but if it is a Democrat then suddenly you cheer when America doesn't get the Olympics because it might make the black President look bad.  You hate them.  You hate them all.

You like people who look like you or at least hate most of the things that you hate.   You profess to love our country and the founding fathers (unless you are reminded that they believed in the separation of church and state).  You like war. You like torture. You like Jesus. I don't know how in the hell any of that is compatible, but no one ever accused you haters of being over-committed to ideological consistency.  Well, here are the facts, Jack.  If you hate the Government then you are unqualified to manage it.  If you hate gay people more than you love America than you should take your own advice and get the hell out. There are several countries that are openly hostile to gay people, but they are full of brown people and you don't like them much either from what I understand.  It looks like you are screwed, but that's not what I am here to tell you.

America is a melting pot, it always has been. We are a multi-cultural amalgamation of all kinds of people.   But oooh you love your country, you say, and you want it back. Well listen here Skippy, it isn't your country, you don't own it, it is our country, and America is NOT the religiously extremist Fox bots who hate science, elitist professors and having a vibrant and meaningful sex life with someone we love.   

Now that you have thrown everything and the kitchen sink at President Obama and it still hasn't worked you are panicking. Obama's approval ratings are still near 50% despite your best efforts to undermine the economy and America's recovery at every step you can.

You call him a Kenyan. You call him a socialist. You dance with your hatred singing it proudly in the rain like it was the 1950 musical.  You’ve tried to hold the American economy hostage to force America into default on its' debts, debts that YOU rang up under Bush, so you could blame it on Obama and it failed. You've used the filibuster more than any other Congress ever, going so far as to vote against providing health care access to 9/11 first responders. You remember 9/11, don't you, it's that thing you used to lie us into a war in Iraq, and then when Obama killed Bin Laden and ended the war in Iraq you told people that he hates America and wants the troops to fail.

You are monsters and I am openly questioning your patriotism.   Frankly, you disgust me. Your hatred nauseates me. Your bigotry offends me. Your racism revolts me.

Republicans can NOT win on the issues. They've got NOTHING.

All they have is a divide and conquer class war that pits ignorant racist and bigoted people against the rest of us in a meaningless battle of wedge issues.   Ask a gay hating and racist religious extremist if they think Corporations are people and they will gladly agree, but if you ask if gay people are people they aren't so sure.  If corporations are people, they are neither American patriots nor capable of love. Just like you.

They have an agenda for tax cuts for the rich, deregulation, privatization and war profiteering and nothing else.  All they can do is blame black people, gays, the government, anybody and everyone else for their own failings.

You are the cruel, heartless misinformed assholes who would sell America out to Halliburton in a heartbeat, you would rather pay ZERO taxes than you would see a newly born baby get access to quality health care, you cheer when we discuss denying health care to young people with preventable diseases, and you boo when we discuss the First Ladies plan to cut back on childhood obesity.   You are the same blind, ignorant and closed minded dunces who drove this country into a civil war years ago because you are bound to the notion that some men are more equal than others.

So stop wearing your hate with pride. Stop celebrating your anti-science, anti-math ignorance. Stop using code words to mask your bigotry like "family values", especially when you hate my family and when you stand on the same stage as a guy who has had three marriages or if you share a seat in the Senate with a guy who cheated on his wife with hookers while wearing diapers. You should be ashamed. I know that you are just doing this to motivate your misinformed hate cult base because if they actually knew that your ideas will make them poorer than they are now, they would never vote for you. You are doing your best to impoverish your countrymen so rich people can get bigger tax breaks and you can keep on delivering corporate welfare to the special interests who have bribed you, and I am disgusted by the way you gleefully parade your hatred with aplomb. I don't think you do love America. At least, not as much as you hate everyone in America who isn't exactly like you.  You should think about that, and maybe get some help.

You hate being called racist. You hate being called a bigot.

Maybe if you talked about creating jobs more than you talk about why you hate gay people we wouldn't call you bigots.  Maybe if you talked about black people without automatically assuming they are on food stamps while demanding their birth certificates we wouldn't call you racist.

And for the record, I do not hate you. I am embarrassed by you and nauseated by your cruel, thoughtless behavior, and your all consuming greed, but I do not hate you. I forgive you and I hope you can change someday, but I don't hate you. You have enough hate in you for the rest of us as it is.

    Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    Today’s political climate is made up of many of the synonyms for “hate”. They seem to be more acceptable than the noun they take their meaning from. The further we become removed from the hate filled lessons of the past – the less sensitivity to those lessons we experience. It is an inevitable thing. Generations forget the lesson of their parents – unless the parents teach them. Teaching can sometimes be as simple as living in a way that conveys the lesson. Compassion and respect and justice for all the beings that inhabit this earth.
    Remember the lessons. Teach the children. Create a better world. ~ By: Don Nelson
