Like Margaret Cho? Wingnuts sh*t all over her...
This is from a year ago, but I just came across it today. I hate these people. click the link and feel free to let these people know what you think of their filthy attacks on Cho, if you like.

Dear Friends of Margaret Cho,

Because Matt Drudge posted an incomplete and edited "transcript" of Margaret Cho's set (about 2 mins. of the 20 min. set.) at the MoveOn.org show Monday night, I have received non stop hateful emails. I believe that many people who read the "transcript" didn't even realize she is a comedian because they mentioned her "speech." Most of my traffic has come directly from a site called freerepublic.com, which posted the "transcript" from Drudge.

Although people were offended by and commented on different parts of the "transcript," it seems that Margaret's biggest crimes are being fat, Asian-American, GLBT supportive, and female. I put a few of them on this page but will forward many more, if asked. I'm sorry in advance if the crudeness offends you. Please know that I am sensitive to that but I think you should know what kind of vitriol is being thrown at Margaret and the kind of racism, homophobia, and misogyny we're up against in the coming election.

1. I love Cho...
And the wing-nuts would hate her, she's brilliant, ballsy, and totally outspoken. And yes, she is Asian, female and liberal. I wouldn't call her fat. She's medium sized, and KICKS ASS!

2. It's almost too painful to read.
Not only are these miserable fucks who trashed Margaret wicked, they are ignorant, too. Telling her to go back to China? Her family is Korean, and she was born in San Francisco!
They're a hateful bunch. This shit will never end...
Viva Margaret Cho! To hell with the haters!

3. I frequently read her blog
and read a lot of this foul, racist bullshit on her site. I love her work and applaud the fact that she doesn't take any of the crap they spew to heart. She openly posts her hate mail on her site and laughs at it. Good for her!

I was sickened by what I read of her hate mail. I keep hoping the age of the hate mongers will just die off, but they seem to perpetuate their ignorance through breeding. They teach their children their bigoted perspectives. Sick, sick, sick.

Rock on Margaret!

Her first one-woman show movie (too tired to remember the name right now) is one of the funniest things I have ever heard or seen in my life.
