    Ignorance, Fear, Hate - Naked

    "The enemy is fear. We think it is hate; but, it is fear."
    - Gandhi

    "Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them… We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant."
     - Karl Popper, "The Open Society and Its Enemies"

    "A Rattlesnake, if cornered will become so angry it will bite itself.  That is exactly what the harboring of hate and resentment against others is - a biting of oneself.  We think we are harming others in holding these spites and hates, but the deeper harm is to ourselves."
     - E. Stanley Jones

    Patrick has sent over the following:

    "This woman is a fucking disgrace to her office.
    "I think these people are really, truly terrified that they won't be calling the shots anymore, and twenty years of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Fox News, the Washington Times, Focus on the Family, the whole wingnut support network has really putrefied, and the syphilitic invective and fear they spurt has really eaten holes into the brains of these people.  These people have taken counsel of their darkest, innermost fears and prejudices, and are reinforcing and encouraging one another's insanity and ugly, black, despicable hatred.  It's going to be a hundred times worse for President Obama than it was for President Clinton.  Think back to the 1990s, when people seriously, literally believed that Bill and/or Hillary Clinton had former friends murdered with fake suicides and convenient plane crashes, when they called Bill Clinton a serial rapist who used the Secret Service as a Praetorian Guard to silence or abduct women who wouldn't keep quiet about (or their pets, as one deranged woman claimed), when they believed the Clintons to be pawns of the Trilateral Commission/Bilderberger Group/Bavarian Illuminati/New World Order that was going to cede American sovereignty to hordes of United Nations foreign soldiers who would swoop down in black helicopters to occupy God-fearing Midwest and Southern towns.  I think we're going to win the White House, and make strong gains in Congress, but the 29 percenters, the people who still like Dubya and adore Sarah Palin, the people who think Jeremiah Wright is a danger to America but who think Christian terrorists like James Kopp and Eric Rudolph are agents of the Lord, are going to get dumber, and crazier, and a lot more dangerous.  I fear we're going to see a resurgence of the militia movement, and more abortion clinic bombings and more doctors murdered; I think we're going to "Mainstream Media" reporters physically attacked or killed (one was assaulted at a McCain/Palin rally in NC recently), and I think we're going to see actual by-God hate rallies occur more and more often.  These people suffer from a serious, cancerous dearth of character, and that cancer is going to metastasize after November 4.
    "Rep. Michele Bachmann's opponent, Elwyn Tinklenberg, is behind in the polls, but Bachmann herself is barely treading water, with a paltry 42 percent in the most recent poll.  There's a big effort now to push the above video around the blogosphere to highlight this appalling person's paranoid crypto-fascist views, and I understand that Tinklenberg has pulled in over $30,000 in contributions from around the country since this show was broadcast.  For a House race, that's serious money, and it can make or break a campaign.  So this is my plea for you guys to look at her disgusting remarks calling for loyalty pledges and McCarthyist investigations of American liberals, and consider sending Elwyn ten bucks, or twenty or fifty.  And please forward to this to whomever you know who might be receptive to such an appeal."

    Donated $25 to him yesterday morning when I saw the video on As of 8pm yesterday, he had earned over $438K since Bachmann's vitriol aired.

    Bachmann is out of her mind, quite obviously. She has that same glazed, zombified look in her eyes as the Palin Patrol, and she only has the one(insignificant) point to make about Obama's past "associations" that he had when he was about 8 years old.

    Yes...Obama is sooooo Anti-American that he's running for President, obviously so he can destroy the country from within.
