I usually don’t let ignorance on Facebook get to me. (I mean, kind of like getting mad at snow in winter, no?)
But this page, found on a high school classmate’s site, makes me a little angrier than the average dumbassery:
DEAR LORD, THIS YEAR YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTOR, PATRICK SWAYZIE. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTRESS, FARAH FAWCETT. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE SINGER, MICHAEL JACKSON. I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW, MY FAVORITE PRESIDENT IS BARACK OBAMA. AMEN
And it has over 1,000,000 fans.
Dislike Obama? Okay. Disagree with me? Fine.
But death threats against the president aren’t funny. They’re inappropriate actually. Scary actually.
I reported the page for containing hate speech, but I really wish there was more I could do. (I mean, kind of like punch 1,000,000 strangers in the face, no?)
The same people who ask God to bless America also publish this kind of thing.
I wonder which side these people think their God is truly on…hope or hate?
