  •  this is what hate does to you. (1+ / 0-)

    It turns you into a person other people despise, one that no one with two brain cells to rub together to form a conscious thought wants anything to do with.

     You look at pseudo-religious groups who have espoused hatred in the recent past (the last 30 years or so) and see the obvious trends...first they are treated as an anomaly, written up in the MSM all the time due to their particular brand of loathsomeness; treated as messiahs in an era gone woefully wrong (in their opinion), their vitriol spewed all over the media outlets to contaminate confused souls searching for something to believe in. Then they begin to multiply, convincing the ignorant and dogmatic needing masses that their brand of hatred is the ONLY way to "salvation", using them to promote their particular type of animosity among the poor, uneducated, and emotionally/intellectually stagnant.

    Unfortunately, this bunch seem to think that using the courts to promote themselves, via antagonistic tactics designed to make others react violently to their hate speech, works, and so far they have succeeded. The ONLY way to deal with that type of behavior is to pretend they don't exist.  Ignoring them, belittling them by nott saying a word to acknowledge their existence, not only gives you the upper hand (or high road), it also infuriates them.

     Given enough time and they will be the ones who react to your behavior towards them, usually in violent outbursts. Once that begins happening their following begins to disperse, the media no longer recognizes them (except as a negative influence on society), and they soon become irrelevant to the public discourse. Yes, it takes a bit of time, but in the long run it's worth a bit of time to make these types self implode and prove how little they are when it comes to the greater good.

    I believe that walls of love between them and the people they are trying to hurt (families of those who have died, military and other heroes funerals, etc.) not only frustrate their "getting out their message" , but compounding that with acting as if they don't exist at the events they show up at may have the effect of making them become immaterial quicker than if we react to them in the manner they hope to achieve.
