I have no issue at all with hating racist, ignorant, stuck-in-the past fuddy-duddies who want to take away everything that is a marker of civilization and shatter everything into shards that creates a functional society. These are the people who want to keep Social Security and Medicare for themselves but make sure no one else gets it. Who deny global warming and disbelieve evolution. Who want to shove their 15th century religion down our throats. Who want women to be chattel once again.
Even though it doesn’t matter much – with global climate change and all – these people deserve to be hated because they are nearly everything substantive that is wrong with the world.
And if you protest that you are a Republican but aren’t a racist anti-science ladder-puller, why would you want to hitch yourself to such a regressive organization as the Republican party?
So, no, I don’t buy it.
I hate these people even though it doesn’t matter much. They deserve to be hated. I don’t give a shit about the validity of their viewpoint from their perspective.
The world would be better off without them.
