Idiot wingnut I used to work with is going crazy on Facebook tonight.

What would possess anyone to post crap about guns and stupid pictures of President Obama on Christmas Eve? And Hillary and Bill Clinton too.

Not a word about Christmas. Just stupid crap criticizing liberals and promoting guns, the NRA and the GOP.

I will never understand the hate these people have in their hearts. Guns on Christmas Eve? Huh???

1. They don't call them gun nuts for no reason.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

2. He was a horrid teacher. The kids just hated him.

I was SO glad when he retired.

I'm not sure why I friended him on Facebook. Puke.

and don't read any more of his rants. Life is too short.

6. I have RW relatives, whom I care for, but

they post articles from the Washington Examiner, the Heritage Foundation, The Federalist, etc. One even writes a RW column for a RW organization.

I wouldn't defriend them as I want to know what's going on in their lives and see photos of their families.

But, I use the "hide" click very quickly.

25. glutton for punishment

or a masochist?

i've got plenty of rightie-puke friends on FB, i choose to ignore their drivel when it comes to politics. they know that i don't agree with 99% of what they do, but thankfully we've reached an unspoken agreement not to argue politics.... cookie recipes are another matter...

look at it this way, you're doing a good deed for someone else who probably really needs a friend... if he's as horrible as you say he is... then he REALLY needs a friend.

8. Whatever you do, don't wander onto the Piers Morgan page.

People with small vocabularies and brains to match want to deport him because he said what he thought about the gun laws.

And no president has tried to deport a Brit for his beliefs since Nixon tried to throw John Lennon out of the U.S.

30. And I remember that John Lennon at one point bought bullet-proof vests for the NYPD.



http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/17/weekinreview/17decurtis.html?_r=0

When the Nixon administration used a minor drug conviction in England as a pretext for kicking the politically outspoken Lennon out of the country, the city rallied behind him. The Hall of Fame exhibition includes a letter from Mayor John V. Lindsay to the Immigration and Naturalization Service recounting Lennon’s charitable and artistic contributions to New York and requesting that he be permitted to stay.

(SNIP)

By the time the couple began working on the album “Double Fantasy” in 1980, life in New York seemed to be on firmer — and safer — footing, though it was still raw enough that in 1979 Lennon and Ono donated $1,000 to purchase bullet-proof vests for the city’s police force.

27. And it illustrates just how great the STUPID has become in the US. The GOP and religion

have given crazies a large political platform from which to spew their insanity. I only hope it's not too contagious. And mixed in with this is the immaturity of it all ... many adults today are exceptionally childish and dangerous.

9. The only reason a gun conversation would be relevant

On Christmas, is if you are responding to an emergency involving one, or worst...

Odd.

(And yes, as a medic I had a few of those. I also volunteered to let Christians go home and have the day off)

16. Sure, guns are so life affirming.

 

Warm and soft and cuddly. No wait, I see guns for what they are for. They are for killing things. Cold and hard and soulless.
Talk about people with hate? I know of some parents of some missing first graders who may disagree with who is really hating who.

19. People who are alienated from reality, their own real selves, & the things that are really valuable

can feel especially unhappy during times that are supposed to be happy and loving . . .

(not that the season doesn't stress others as well).

And if they did, being mocked for it. In many forums. Maybe even this one.

23. Interesting.

I've never seen anyone on DU being "mocked" for celebrating Christmas/Christmas Eve. They rightly point out the fallacy of December 25 being Jesus' birthday, the paganism behind the date, etc., but I don't see anyone being "mocked" for wanting to celebrate the holidays.

24. We had family Christmas gathering last night, Christmas eve

I found one of the participants in the computer room during the proceedings looking at at assault rifles on some gun trading website, his nine year old daughter looking over his shoulder.

Not a blood relative thankfully.
