Words to the wingnuts

A note to the wingnuts of the world:

  • The intelligent world sees through your predictable inconsistencies. Just so you know, hearing someone who is twice- or thrice-divorced pontificate on how same-sex marriage is an “attack on traditional families” is laughable in its pathetic and obvious hypocrisy.
  • You already HAVE death panels, my friends. You honestly mean to tell me that your preference is to have your health care decisions made by an insurance company? Really?
  • Comparing a public figure to Hitler, or likening any current U.S. event to the Holocaust, trivializes and belittles the genocide of a people by making a vastly unequal and inappropriate comparison, and demonstrates to the world just how ignorant and blindered you really are.
  • The current climate is tinder-dry, yet you blithely toss incendiary words and slogans to the firebugs. Do you not realize that what you so carelessly do for today’s political gain may well spark tomorrow’s Breaking News? Or is it that you simply do not care?

Yes, I am angry. I am angry, I am sick to death of the stupidity, hatred, and bigotry splashed across the screen every single day, and I am powerless to do anything about it.

So is there an answer? How will it all end?
