I was just looking at Fow News's website when I saw a link to an open forum about whether or not we should allow the terror suspects from Gitmo on U.S. soil. What I saw honestly shocked me.

Right wing nuts are having total meltdowns now that Obama is president. Judging from what they are saying our country is quickly going to become a Facist, Socialist, Communist, Terrorist harboring third world country. When I clicked on this forum at Fox one comment took this hate speech to the next level.

This quote honestly scares me. Someone is wishing for the death of the first lady and two young children. What surprises me even more than the fact that someone said this is that Fox allowed it to be posted on the forum. I wish I knew how to inform the Secret Service about something like this!

Here are some more responses from the forum:

I think we should have a re-vote. Maybe people will come to their senses and see what a mess he is going to make in just a short time. No one wants these terrible people who hate us among us.

We need to contact our senators and congressmen and make a stand. On another topic, if you don’t know what partial birth abortion is - look it up. It is terrible. Surely anyone with a heart and soul can’t be for that!!!!!

I pray every day that God will save this country from it’s stupid decisions. If we can just get through another 2 years and then vote new people into congress to offset Obama and his sickening agenda, then maybe we can get through the subsequent 2 years by stalling everything he tries to do (or undo) until we can get him and his Clintonistas out of our hair for good!

(UPDATE 1) Someone requested a link so here you go:

Do the prisoners at Gitmo deserve a fair trial?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
