|Two Minutes Hate||Politics|
McCain/Palin rallies are invoking an ugly, Brownshirt vibe that is very, very dangerous.
This is an extremist brand of politics that should be shunned by all decent people. What they're stirring up isn't going to just evaporate come November 5th.
So much for Country First.
For me it is stomach churning, and a reminder that in all my 70 years of being alive on this planet people don't seem to improve.
I hear this racist crap at the post office, in the line at the grocery store, and, most disturbingly, from one or two children in my neighborhood who surely learned it from their parents.
What is so frustrating for me, at least, is that confrontation is useless. These people are beyond the reach of both reasoned argument and even the embarrassment of public condemnation.
