Hate America at its Worst

It seems that the “Hate America” bunch has reached its apogee of nastiness. Popular leaders seem unleashed in their freedom to bash America and the American people. It seems to me that they have no respect for the majority of decent Americans who love this country and stand for tried and true values.

For instance: Federal California District Court judge Vaughn Walker lately struck down Proposition 8 (a voter initiative that eliminated the legality of same-sex marriage in California) and opined that those who disagree with him—the majority of California voters—can be motivated only by bigotry. He stated, “Religious beliefs that gay and lesbian relationships are sinful or inferior to heterosexual relationships harm gays and lesbians. The evidence shows conclusively that moral and religious views form the only basis for a belief that same-sex couples are different from opposite-sex couples.”

Mayor Bloomberg, of New York has said that residents who want the Islamic mosque moved away from Ground Zero are people who should be “ashamed of themselves.” Apparently, he disagrees with 61% of the New York population.

Nancy Pelosi has referred to people who disagree with her and do not like the health care bill as people who should be “carrying swastikas.” Name calling like the above is sure evidence that the speakers have lost a rational basis for debate—it always happens that when good and reasonable arguments are exhausted, debaters turn to name calling.
