Evil, Vile Hatred of The Lowest Form
This has gotten ridiculously out of hand. First some right-wing nutjobs are shouting things like "Terrorist!", "Kill him!" and "Off with his head!" at McCain-Palin rallies when Obama's name is mentioned (a note: what do they think this is, Alice in Wonderland or the 16th century?), but NOW we have slashed tires at an Obama rally, death threats to Obama supporters who display Obama/Biden lawn signs and a baby black bear has been brutally killed . And it's only Monday.


Where is all this hatred coming from? Is the naive, racist, pro-KKK mentality still alive and well enough to incite this much evil across the country? If you don't like a particular candidate, that is all fine and good. I, for instance, despise and loathe Chris Buttars, LeVar Christensen and Jason Chaffetz, but I would never in a million years threaten to kill their supporters' entire families! Much less kill and dump a baby animal (or any animal) as some sort of morbid, sadistic, messed up symbol!

Where has the morality of Americans gone? Where is our sense of decency?

From Western Carolina University:
A dead bear was found dumped this morning on the Western Carolina University campus, draped with a pair of Obama campaign signs, university police said.

Maintenance workers reported about 7:45 a.m. finding a 75-pound bear cub dumped at the roundabout near the Catamount statute at the entrance to campus, said Tom Johnson, chief of university police.

“It looked like it had been shot in the head as best we can tell. A couple of Obama campaign signs had been stapled together and stuck over its head,” Johnson said.

From Chicago:
Two supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama found handwritten death threats in their mailboxes Thursday and reported them to Villa Park police.

A 74-year-old woman and a 46-year-old man with Obama signs in their front yards near the 600 block of South Villa Avenue received similar letters that had a Villa Park Village Hall return address. "Get the Obama signs off your property—now," the letter reads. "Failure to obey this order will result in the immediate death of all family members." Both residents said they will not remove their signs, though the man, who had voted Republican for 25 years before switching parties this year, said his wife is worried about letting their 7-year-old son play alone outside.

From Fayetteville, North Carolina:
Someone slashed the tires of at least 30 vehicles parked outside the Crown Coliseum on Sunday during a rally for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, authorities said.

Sheriff’s deputies are investigating. The tires were cut while people were inside the Crown Coliseum listening to speeches, said Maj. E. Wright of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office. Many of the damaged vehicles were parked on Wilkes Road. Representatives from Obama and Sen. John McCain’s campaigns said they were unaware of the acts.

Susan Lagana, the North Carolina communications director for Obama, said it was extremely disappointing and unfortunate that “people would have to experience something like that.” Mario Diaz, communications director for McCain, did not respond to a call late Sunday.

Sarah Revis, who lives on Wilkes Road, said the slashed tires left several women, including a single mother and a toddler, stranded and upset. At least four tow trucks were sent to move the vehicles from the Crown, Revis said.

“This is an embarrassment to this city and to me as a citizen,” Revis said. “I’ve seen women out here crying and men cussing. This is a crying shame.”

    Wow, I hadn't heard about the bear cub.

    Yeah. Not sure what else to say about that.

    Excuse me, Mr. Hell, what are you doing in that handbasket?
