Y U So Hateful?
I’m doing my morning perusal of websites and headlines.
All I see is hate and anger.
You pick the topic. It doesn’t matter. Obama, Romney, homosexuals (Boy Scouts of America, Chick-Fil-A, Muppets, Sally Ride), Aurora, guns….
There’s so much hate, so much anger, so much ugly, so much venom and vitriol (and so much displayed ignorance)… and most of the people engaged in it don’t even realize how ugly they’re being. Or if they do, they certainly seem to be quite happy to be that way. Furthermore, they miss the irony of how they’re talking about how hateful “the others” are, all while missing how hateful they’re being about “the others”.
You scream about how intolerant “the other group/guy” is, but you’re not tolerating them.
You rant about hate, but there’s no love manifested in your actions.
You point out their hypocrisy, but you’re oblivious to your own.
And how many people will read this thinking how this applies to everyone but themselves.
I’m not angry. I’m sad.
