Name Calling

Wow, things have been heated lately over at the Women's Colony. If my link works above, you will be directed to an opinion piece where the author claims similarities between Tea Party members and the man who flew his plane into the IRS building in Austin, Texas. Comments got pretty spirited.

My personal take is that the man in Austin was not in his right mind and comparing him to people who have different political beliefs than you is just wrong. Also rude. I don't like the comparison. If you want to disagree with Tea Party members, find a stronger platform than that poor schmuck. What he did was absolutely, completely wrong and innocent people suffered as a consequence. It is a far cry from voicing unhappiness with the current state of the union.

Edited to add, the link works! I'm amazed.

  1. I agree with you, although I have to admit I did giggle when on that post I read "teabaggers". Pornographic jargon had never been so funny to me before.
