Lunatic Right

I would never claim that there aren't people of a "ranting and raving" disposition on the progressive side of things, but this letter in response to a very mild anti-war op-ed in USA Today by Al Neuharth shows a vehement strain of irrational hatred that I've only ever seen on the right. From this site.

Mel Gibbs: “The Patriot Act will put both of you (Al Neuharth and Greg Mitchell) on trial for treason and convict and execute both of you as traitors for running these stories in a time of war and it should be done on TV for other communist traitors like you two to know we mean business. This is war and you should be put in prison NOW for talking like this. Who the hell do you people think you are? You give aid and comfort to our enemies and aid them in murdering our proud soldiers. You people are a disgrace to America. Your families should be put in prison with you, then be made to leave and move to the Middle East ...You two guysare evil bastards…This is a great Christian nation and godwants us to lead the world out of darkness with great leaders likePresident George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Communists like Al and Greg will soon be in prison and on death row for your ugly papers. We won the election and now you are mad. We own America and all the rights, you people are trash, go back to Russia and Africa and take your friends with before we put you on death row after a fair trial.”

And they wonder why we on the reasoned left want changes to the Patriot Act.
