    Fear and ignorance. Ignorance and fear. It's quite horrible what they can inspire humans to do.

    I'm reminded, sadly, of The_Monsters_Are_Due_on_Maple_Street, the classic, and still quite relevant Twilight Zone episode.

    The episode can be viewed here. That's Part I, and the other two Parts are easily accesible from that page. Highly recommend viewing for anyone who hasn't seen it.

    So many episodes of the original TZ are still fresh and relevant. Rod Serling was a genius.

    I read the video title and thought, "Hate COMES to Orange County? You mean, it didn't just grow up and fester there?"

    A fringe part of a large organization does not make the entire organization racist. Be careful when you respond because there are hate groups the use hate speech on both sides

    No idea what they are protesting, but it looks to me like they are practicing their first amendment rights.

    Interesting that someone would be ashamed to be an American when others are practicing one of the most american of traditions, speaking out publicly about what you believe when in many countries you could not have a divergent point of view, at least publicly.

    You have no idea what they're protesting? Did you watch the video?

    I never said these morons didn't have the right to BE morons. Please stop putting words in my posts that aren't there to begin with.

    My point is, racist Neanderthals like the ones in this video are everywhere...and I choose to excercise MY right to let as many people as I can KNOW that this shit is happening everywhere in this country to innocent people like the Muslim citizens victimized by the protestors.

    This video is just another example of what the Teabagger movement is doing to this country. Telling an American citizen that he is not welcome here any longer and must go "back" to some home in which he never lived in the FIRST place is un-American as it gets. But the 'Baggers in this video have been captured digitally forever and ever, much to the future shame of their descendants. But hey...Karma's a bitch.

    NOW do you understand my position?

    You know hate doesn't just "come" to Orange County, or to Arizona, or Wisconsin, or Montana, or Georgia, or wherever else. It's homegrown. ...Springs up under our feet almost unnoticed, nurtured and groomed under auspices of free speech and first amendment rights, presumably, including the right to take away or curtail someone else's rights. Hate dwells within.

    Want to know where? Here's a "map":

    Yes. It's important to let the world see these groups. Don't SQUELCH folks like the Klan, Black Separatist groups, Westboro Baptist Church and the bigots in this video...Shine a light on them! Let the world know that this sort of bullshit exists everywhere in this country.

    Otherwise, we'll just succeed in pushing them underground.

    I'd rather have my enemy in my sights. It's easier to deal with them that way.

    While I agree with your original feelings on the video, doesn't the above put you on the same level as those who are harrassing others for expressing their views, beliefs, etc.? :frown1:

    Not when it's a response to Alt.

    Logic doesn't apply when engaging the illogical.
