Last night I wrote a brief piece about a twitter handle that cracked me up because it was light and fun. I wrote that it was so welcome over the usual…vile political diarrhea… and angry rhetoric.
Should I be surprised that I then received love notes overnight from keyboard critics?
Nope. But they were pretty vile and I think they need an airing. I take threats seriously. Besides, I am not a moonbat who is a lonely aging liberal lady who is drinking while abusing prescription drugs as one commenter indicated but I do know lots of nice law enforcement folks….even in Radnor Township where this commentor appears to hail from. And they were so angry they commented twice.
The third commenter is apparently enough of a spammer that wow they are listed everywhere. Hard to discern if they hail from Dallas, TX or Russia:
Oh my gosh oh golly, bet they did not know this blog has this awesome feature called blocking, right?
If they want to be angry Americans (if they are even Americans) that’s on them. But I reported all of their fake e-mail addresses and I.P. addresses and I am sorry they are so angry, bless their hearts.
These Internet trolls are exhausting, and exhausting to themselves most of all, I have no doubt. As someone who is not and never has been particularly liberal, I marvel how today anyone who has a brain or a conscience is an evil liberal. How anyone with their own thought process as an independent thinker is evil and to be reviled? And people wonder why I stopped being a Republican and became an Independent?
When did it become o.k. in this country to behave this way? And what has been upsetting me recently besides the everyday adhominum attacks lobbed at anyone who dares breathe it seems? How about posthumously tearing down someone like the late Senator John McCain who literally gave his entire life in service to this country? Sorry, not sorry but I am not o.k. with that and it originated with a sitting U.S. President no less, correct? And as a result, look what someone said to his widow because they obviously thought it was o.k.:
I think that all of these keyboard tigers should read what George Washington wrote so long ago in his Rules of Civility. R.I.P. civil discourse and honorable opposition, apparently. Does anyone actually remember how and why this country was founded?
