8. They are disgusting. They know it, too. Slime of the earth. And now they are Anti-American.

What a vile existence they lead.
Can you imagine waking up every morning with a brain focused on the crud they worship?
Hopefully they'll all start taking their lives like that loser Hitler did.

Really, just pathetic writeoffs. The lowest. The Lowest.

The Lost.
