Lest there be any doubt, the right wing of America has gone totally off the deep end and entered uncharted territory. Fed red meat by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glen Beck, the frothing mad and seriously deranged teabaggers have now shown their true colors and it is as ugly as I expected.
At a anti-health care rally at the Capitol, protestors hurled racial and homophobic slurs at Democratic members of Congress. Representative John Lewis (D-Georgia), a civil rights hereo, was repeatedly called nigger (lets not sugar coat this by using the less offensive N-word) by unhinged, right wing racist. Representative Emmanuel Cleaver (D-Missouri) was spat upon by others while Representative Barney Frank (D-Massachuesettes) was called homo and faggot, the last slur garnering a round of laughter.
Republican leaders, who had better watch out themselves as these crazies will soon turn on them, were quick to condem but stressed that it wasn't representative of the group as a whole. Bullshit. One look at any of these teabagger rallies tells you all you need to know. They are filled with angry white males, pissed off that America elected a black man as President. The crowds are 100% white, trend older and filled with hateful signs that don't bother to disguise the true hatred of those who like to tea bag. The only thing missing are the white hoods and burning crosses.
Make no mistake about this people, these crazed right wingers are a serious threat to this nation. They will stop at nothing to preserve their image of America. Think for a moment about what it is that they are so up in arms about. They are pissed that Democrats want to ensure health coverage for all Americans. Seriously, why does helping your fellow Americans so upset these people? Imagine if Obama really was the socialist they make him out to be. How long before they actually do break out their guns and start opening fire on anyone with an Obama bumper sticker? How long till one of them tries to kill Obama or other Democrats? At what point do we stop calling them crazed protestors and start calling them what they really are...Terrorist?
