The Scream by Edvard Munch, 1893
Here's one true and very scary story for Friday the 13th. Even if you skim it and hit the highlights, you'll be shaking your head in horror and disbelief.

It doesn't surprise me given the hateful diatribe found on right wing political blogs out there. I know quite a few people who have read Steyn's book and regularly read his blogsite and columns. he truly has generated a great deal of this vitriol as has Ann Coulter.
It makes me sick.

A Friday 13th scare story... indeed. Words almost fail me since the nightmare continues. The US already has so much and the neo-cons still wants more regardless of the consequences on the rest of the world. Indeed even their children. There is no law of physics that says us humans can keep using up resources of the planet without consequences. Shame the laws of physics do not agree with the laws of politics.

I can't believe it was a true story much less comment on what was said. Horrific!

I read every word in a sort of dark and unbelieving fascination. Now this is journalism.
I can only hope that this sort of thinking is by and large limited to these old fools who should be dying out any day now, and that the younger fools are less in number. I'm not surprised at what they *really* think, given the poison mouth and pen of the vile and malicious ann coulter.

No no I'm not looking. I'll never sleep.

"The only thing more scary would be a bunch of vacationing "progressives" on the same trip organized by "The Nation". That likewise, would be interesting reading written from the perspective of an "unbiased journalist" like the one who wrote this story."
Oh really? More scary? I have never heard a "progressive" call for people to be put in a gas chamber because they disagree with an illegal war and practice free speech. I've never heard a progressive voice the hatred and paranoia that I see in our neocons.
Kim, my sentiments exactly!

I think I need to paint my own scream. I am continually horrified by the lack of perspective by the NeoCons. Yesterday's press conference by George II was unreal. In high school, over 30 years ago, I remember learning that the Republican Party is "government of the rich, by the rich and for the rich." You can be assured that any teacher expressing such a thought would be fired today. Where do the working and creative people who made this country strong (and the rich richer) belong? I am looking forward to moving to the UK.

Ship of fools alright. Lean too far left OR right, and you'll find them.
Pretty scary Friday the 13th story though...I was able to read only the first two sections because I am at work, but I think I got the point! ;P

I was formulating the same sort of reaction to this article when I read Jill's comment. She took the words right out of my mouth. Ditto Jill's comment.

The journalist in question is British and has no bias either way about American politics. The facts speak for themselves. Kim is absolutely right when she says she's never heard so-called progressives or liberals speak in such a fascist, hateful way (about those whose opinions differ from theirs) than the neo-cons do. Just because one disagrees with the president and his politics does not make him or her any less patriotic than the next American. The Constitution does not allow killing another person simply because their views are different than one's own, as one of the women in the article advocates. We need to look for common ground, rather than focusing on what divides us. Theoretically we all want the same thing, which is the best for our country and equal rights for all, not just a select few.

That is the most fascinating look into the minds of conservatives that I've read to date. It's comical-- except that they're for real. The best line from the reporter has to be: "I stare out to sea. How long would it take me to drown?" That made me laugh out loud.
