    what with the calling half the country "maggots".
    In Rwanda, it was "cockroaches".

    That's some scary levels of hate there. It's like Limbaugh x10. Does the Secret Service keep an eye on people like this?

      You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

      it is a dangerous time......

      That is one thing I push back hard on when I see it here...I have no interest in tribal bloodshed here in the U.S.

        Dehumanizing language bothers me, although I've probably fallen into it myself when I'm angry. I try not to.

        I think "vermin" and "rats" were used in Nazi Germany.
        "Cockroach" in particular makes me wince in horror (as a more recent reference; plus, I hate cockroaches). "Maggots" is about on that level, and reading this guy's words is very disturbing. Half the country is maggots? Yikes.
