Once again, my state continues to shock me. Is this a threat? Someone’s idea of a stupid, sick joke?
First a reporter getting kicked at Elon, and now an animal shot to death, with Obama signs acting like some sort of funeral shroud.
Meanwhile, someone has sent in this postcard to PostSecret. Is this also a threat? An expression of dread? Dread for whom or what, though?
This election is equal parts hope and fear. And yes, I blame both McCain and Palin for helping stoke that fear. For implying and, in Palin’s case, pretty much saying, “look, there’s this boogeyman out there, there is this creature, this terrorist, and something must be done about it.” I think they knew exactly what they were doing. And now the entire thing is spinning out of control, but their precious fee-fees are hurt over being compared to George farking Wallace.
What about Obama’s family? What are they feeling right now? When someone you love is being presented as a terrorist, are someone who must practically be culled from society, and those being reaching out to have heard the dog-whistle loud and clear, what do you do with that?
