Vicious Vitriol

Today there was another gathering of the tea party-er types in Washington D.C. Last September I wrote about what I saw as the racism at the core of their blind rage.

Today, once again, they revealed themselves as angry bigots, screaming racial epithets at Democratic African American members of Congress, including the venerable John Lewis of Georgia. Additionally, they showed themselves to be homophobes as they shouted at Congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts, who is openly gay.

The occasion for their assembly: health insurance reform.

Hi DMM -
Yes it does make one wonder.
It is just health insurance reform and not the end of the world.
And the bill which may be passed tonight is a far cry from the one we really wanted!

Hi Gail -
I understand. It is so shameful.
