One of my Facebook friends, posted this article which I thought was extremely interesting!
Please take a minute to read this…
From the article:
“It is dishonest for right-wing commentators to insist on an equivalence that does not exist. The danger of political violence in this country comes overwhelmingly from one direction — the right, not the left. The vitriolic, anti-government hate speech that is spewed on talk radio every day — and, quite regularly, at Tea Party rallies — is calibrated not to inform but to incite.”
Incite what? Discontent with current government? Too late! Discontent is already here! I read articles by leftists and they are fishing! When talking to my clients I often stated “They are fishing, don’t take the bait. They want you to react in a way that makes you look bad.” I say, they have really crappy bait and the only fish I am going to fry are the ones on election day, when I cast my vote for people who will not go with the same ole party line smelly bait, but rather those that have a solid compass and who will not waver from steering the United States of America in the right direction. Those that still believe in American values and the American Dream and American Exceptionalism! I DISAGREE with the current direction of our government and that is my RIGHT as an American citizen!
So disagreeing with the current government is now HATE speech???? Whatever ever happened to the leftist rant of the Bush years, which I believe was “dissent was the highest form of patriotism?”
This ongoing slant on opposing views, beckons infringements forthcoming on our 1st Amendment rights. When people disagree, it is could be portrayed as a “hate crime.” I WILL NOT STOP SPEAKING OUT IF I DISAGREE!!!! There is a big difference between disagreeing and hate speeches. Although the current government only has itself to blame if people are so vehemently opposing it. …
I am not some right-wing “radical” they try to accuse of hate mongering or inciting violence. I am a hardworking American, Native American, tax paying, conservative. I am a minority, I am a woman – I disagree with the leftist politics and socialist agenda. Go figure!
The next tidbit I want to discuss is this comment left on my page in response to a link to an article:
I wrote “This disgusting saga continues, it WILL end November 2012… without FAIL” and attached the following link:
The comment given by someone I know was:
OMG is that really all we should be worried about…the tip of the flag on the floor. I don’t believe it’s any more disgusting the the prior 8 years…oh didn’t we already win the war! I rarely do this but….
Now… my response:
Hey lady… no not just it… It’s actually the least of our worries. BUT it is really disrespectful… Most military people (like my father, grandfather, brother, father-in-law) I know would never let the flag touch the ground, be hung incorrectly or any other sign of disrespect. And coming from the highest office (Commander in Chief) of our country makes it more heinous. But I agree, we have MUCH more to worry about!
