    Social media has given a stage to the smallest minds in our society.

    I cannot describe in a polite manner the disgust I feel for these people. The man is a hero.

    Conservatives have been bad for this country since at least FDR's day.

    They all need to be sent to FEMA re-education camps.

    Next election, vote against EVERY Republican, for EVERY office, at EVERY level. Be patriotic, save the country.

    As the average of the culture gets farther and farther away from them, the crazies get crazier.

    $.02 pulling online gossip out to air can give one a distorted few of a population. Yes it’s there and yes it influences people but migod it’s like crawling under a house instead of walking somewhere.

    Is true. But because it's so visible, it does give a distorted view of things.

    This quote remains true... though to be modernized, it should say '... frantic and desperate search...'

    Very true. The great advantage and disadvantage of the internet is that barriers to entry are so low, and the fringes are easy to find. Fifty or sixty years ago, you'd have to look long and hard to uncover the equivalent of these guys, and if they published anything it would be a ten-page mimeographed newsletter, mailed out to a couple of hundred subscribers. Now a couple of hours of research with a laptop, you know all about the slimy things crawling in the foetid excrement under the rock.

    And still, the average mainstream is a LOT more tolerant than it was then.

    The racist Right has been the home of violent cowards throughout human history but a recent US example is Rep Preston Brooks' caning Sen Charles Sumner. Let's not pretend that the racist right's craven behavior and support of violence is something new.
