To Those Who Say We Can't Hate Bush

"I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies another this right makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it." :Thomas Paine

This is to the diarist who asked, "Who the Fuck Do You Think You Are?" in yet another attempt to dare to tell Americans how they are to feel and think...

I won't be made to feel guilty for my utter contempt, outrage, moral indignation, and disgust for people who would STEAL THIS DEMOCRACY. If you aren't feeling that contempt for those who would deliberately seek to overthrow all our Forefathers worked for, then frankly, I doubt you really love this country.
This is the same mentality that got them the House, the Senate, the White House, and every other institution in this country. And no, I don't usually hate, BUT I DESPISE THEM AND ALL THEY STAND FOR for what they have done to this country, because I LOVE THIS COUNTRY MORE, and I will be damned if anyone writing a rant on a blog just to get on a rec list is going to make me feel guilty for that.
They have STOLEN votes that denied us all the greatest President this country would have known in this century...And I repeat, the greatest President we would have known in this century... but I'm supposed to sing Kumbaya and pass out flowers and say peace to everybody, and say It's OK, we didn't really need that Democracy anyway. I'm not a fighter, I'm just a sheep and I don't despise you for that?
They subvert the constitution and use fear and lies to try to usurp our GOD GIVEN rights under the Constitution, but I'm supposed to say, don't judge them too harshly?
They make this world a tinderbox waiting to explode with terrorism, war, and deficits for years to come that OUR CHILDREN will have to live with not of their own making, but I'm supposed to be calm and say, that's OK, my child wasn't doing anything with his life anyway, so he might as well live it in subservience to your ideology with limited opportunity, limited civil liberties, and perpetual war? OOOOOO how nice...
I don't use vulgarity here because I find it to be offensive, but in this case I will make an exception:
Who the FUCK do you think you are to intimate that all of us who feel this way are just like them or that we aren't justified in feeling this way?
They kill our children, they take food out of the mouths of the hungry, and seek ways to curtail our civil liberties and the rights of women to choose what they can do with their own bodies. They use God and this "war on terror" as shields for their evil, they ruin everything they touch, and they are bent on making this country the very kind of third world rogue nation that uses torture and oppression to gain power. And above it all, which is truly the one thing I truly DESPISE them for, they have done all in their power to destroy this beautiful planet the Creator gave us. So as I said above, if that doesn't make you seethe, then you don't love this country.
So yes, I absolutely despise them, and I'm not going to sit here playing word games on a blog and being made to feel guilty because I dare to feel what any warm blooded, decent, principled American SHOULD feel regarding the FASCISTS who have taken over our government by judicial coup.
If that isn't the time to hate a bit and use that hate for good to get back what they took from us, tell us all knowing one, WHEN IS IT TIME? So, no fighting their theft of elections, because it might look too hateful? No standing up to this war, because it might look too hateful? No standing up to their destructive policies because it might look too hateful? No questioning them about 9.11, because God forbid that we actually seek the TRUTH, because that is so damned hateful? And no calling them LIARS not because we necessarily hate as a practice, but because it is the damned TRUTH, because God forbid we actually show that we are Americans with a brain, a conscience, a soul, and a pulse? I say, SCREW THAT.
You know, sometimes I think this site is just too damned politically correct for it's own good. And of course, elections are near, so I suppose some think they have to come out now and try to shut up those who are expressing themselves here a bit too honestly regarding these bastards, because hey, Bush's poll numbers are down and we don't want any disillusioned Republicans to vote for anyone but a Democrat now. Is that how it goes here? Well, forget that. I'm a Democrat, and I don't even know if I want to vote for Democrats anymore either. Especially if this is their mentality.
And if that is the atmosphere that is going to be displayed in the dkos community from now until the elections, when we won't even be able to express our outrage and CONTEMPT for these TRAITORS to our country without being made to feel guilty for it and downrated into oblivion by this bogus clique making system, then frankly, I don't want anything to do with this place.
And if YOU prefer the high road, dear, then take it. Why should anything change? You (in general) took it in 2000 and have been taking it every damned year since, and look what we got because of that. But take it...Take it and run as fast as you can to the deepest part of the woods you can find, light a candle, and sit there while those who actually want to DO SOMETHING about these LYING, THIEVING, MURDERING, HEARTLESS, SOULLESS, TRAITOROUS moral cowards because we LOVE THIS COUNTRY more than we HATE THEM, do it.Oh, and one more piece of advice. If you don't want Coulter, Hannity, O'Reilly, and Limbaugh shouting at you, then DON'T WATCH OR LISTEN TO THEM! Spend that time working to make this country a better place instead of whining about it.
