Sometimes when you’re angry, you say exactly what you’re thinking.
How is this legal? How is this not considered to be hate speech?
How is that our national news tonight is full of Donald Trump’s latest nasty boy tweet toward a media person (Ho fucking hum) instead of looking at THIS.
I don’t even know what to do with the fear and rage that this piece brings out in me.
I hate the NRA. I hate them. I hold them personally responsible for ALL of the young people in this country who despair and kill themselves with guns. I hold them responsible for every baby and child who is killed because a gullible parent bought into the lie that owning a gun would keep the family safe.
I hate them.
I’m sympathetic to the idea that in these difficult times, people are not seeing the things that are there. The ad was not a call to arms — except a call to political action, to “fight this violence of lies with a “clenched fist of truth.” By the way, you can’t grip a gun with a clenched fist, so…
I commented on the original post:
Since I linked the post, the author will know I’m quoting her. I hope she visits, and that we can all have a great discussion about why speech should be free, even if you have a different view about guns. And maybe about the notion that “hating” someone for their beliefs is really a form of intolerance.
I don’t hate the author, but she’s wrong.
