If I am going decry the wingnuts when they foam at the mouth and commit violent acts I have to get on the left when they do it as well.
(It's getting bad here in A-merry-ca when we can't feel safe in the place we call home or where we worship. )
Take the case of one of A-merry-ca's most famous "birthers", Lou Dobbs. Seems someone has been taking target practice at Lou's crib. If true, that is not cool. And, to make matters worse, Lou says his wife -that beautiful Mexican A-merry-can Princess- could have been hit.
"But I want to tell you, when you talk about what they've done - they've created an atmosphere and they've been unrelenting in their propaganda," Dobbs said. "Three weeks ago this morning, a shot was fired at my house where I live. My wife was standing out and that followed weeks and weeks of threatening phone calls."
See what "propaganda" can do folks? It can make folks crazy. Mr. Dobbs has a right to speak his mind, this is A-merry-ca, damn it! No one should fear being shot in their own home just because someone happens to disagree with what they are saying.
"And, as I told the state patrol, and by the way, the New Jersey State Patrol is absolutely terrific - they responded instantly. But this shot was fired with my wife not, I don't know, 15 feet away and we had threatening phone calls that I decided not to report because I get threatening phone calls," Dobbs continued. "I now - it's become a way of life - the anger, the hate, the vitriol, but it's taken a different tone where they've threatened my wife. They've now fired a shot at my house while my wife was standing next to the car. It's become something else."
Mr. Dobbs, I hope they catch the SOB's and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
I bet they were illegals.
Now back to my Phillies. It's not looking good up in the Bronx. :(
