    •  Look... the double entendre isn't your cup of tea (0+ / 0-)

      but that is NOT the equivalent of Rwanda.

      You have realms of documentation that demonstrate the links between the teabaggers and the Koch Bros.

      Nice and sweet may be protocol for some people, but for others it's not the lay of the land.  

      A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit.

        and I enjoy good sarcasm as much as anyone - see my song Ratzinger, to the tune of Goldfinger.

        But you seem unable to grasp the point that dehumanizing people by calling them animals just stoops to the moral level of the bigots and tends to antagonize neutrals we need to win over.

        There is a LOT of history of dehumanizing language leading to violent action.  It is not a tool for our side - we need to fight VERY hard, but using tools that prefigure a better world.
