What frightens me isn’t only the bigotry, gullibility, ignorance, and stupidity of the new Republican Party. Those things are upsetting.
It’s their intense hate and vitriol that I find unnerving.
Their psyches are drenched in denial and fear to the point of projecting blood-lust toward people they oppose. They dread calmness. It could lead to realizing that what they really fear is something within themselves.
I feel overwhelmed by the murderous rage of people like Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Mark Levin. They distort and interpret facts through a prism of hatred.
Rush Limbaugh applauded Romney’s insulting birther comment, saying he hopes it signals the Republican Convention will be a fest of attacks against Obama. Limbaugh wasn’t talking policy – he fervently and openly wants the Convention to be a lynch mob against one man.
Their explosiveness can be summoned at the mention of a name. Levin, Coulter, and other ultra Conservatives almost foam at the mouth. They are always seething.
This madness is spreading throughout the country.
