Back in April of last year I posted about the Facebook group that supposedly prayed for the death of President Obama. In case you missed that one here’s what that group said on their Facebook page…
“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.”
Of course everyone got their panties in a bunch because this was basically a death wish for President Obama. Back in my post about that I said that I do not condone in any way what that Facebook group stood for and I asked would those of you who are demanding the removal of this Facebook group have done the same if George W. Bush was still president?
Now fast forward to today when I get an invite to join a Facebook group called I hate it when I wake up and Sarah Palin is still alive. No links because I don’t give links to attention whores.
Anyway as I posted the other day that the Tuscon tragedy should not be politicized it seems that some small-minded individuals have not taken that message to heart. Now of course they’re claiming they’re not politicizing it but they keep having to say things like this on their group.
I feel like some of us are repeating ourselves, but once again: This site is not one expressing Palin’s involvement with Loughner’s actions. It is saying that we think the world would be a better place without Palin. Or (in my case) without Palin as a politician.
And also they keep saying things like…
This is a page about venting dislike over Sarah Palin. This is no way advocates an assassination of Sarah Palin in any way, shape or form.
Yet they have a picture like this on their page…
Look, I’m no fan of Sarah Palin. I personally think that she’s a goofball, but I thought Democrats and progressives were supposed to be the people of tolerance. This doesn’t look very tolerant to me. To me it looks more like a case of dishing it out but not being able to take it.
As long as politics on both left and right keep resorting to hate filled tricks like this there will never be any hope for our country.
