  •  To "link" this story to Republicanism is silly. (1+ / 0-)

    The Republican right certainly seems crazy to me, but I don't judge the Democrats as much better, and I'm certain that many perfectly sane people in countries other than the US can hardly tell the difference between Republicans and Democrats.  Let's quit talking about trying to muzzle the right wing simply because they're detestable fools.  As to hate, I hated the Bush gang from the start; I hoped that their more-money-to-the-rich policies would fail, and maintained that their wars would fail.  I wanted others to hate them too.  If you can't hate murderous looters, who can you hate? (somebody's sure to tell me here that you shouldn't hate anybody...) In expressing this, was I an instigator of violence?

      It's not so much that I was trying to "link" this monstrous school bombing to Republicans, but when I think of somebody who would say "I hate paying taxes for this school--I'm just going to kill some people," it reminds me of people who also say "I hate paying taxes and giving up my gun, so I'm gonna kill some people.  

      This isn't an official political party mindset, but the guys yelling "KILL HIM" were in the audience listening to Sarah Palin last fall.

      And, you are completely right that the rest of the world probably can't figure out what separates the Republicans from the Democrats, but I suspect they do notice that despite this, there is still a difference between George Bush and Barack Obama.

      I pretty much hated Bush and Cheney the whole 8 years, too, even thought I tried to not think that way.

      Ahhh . . . It's nice to feel like we're a cool country again.
