57. I don't know if it gets more disgusting than this......
I am neither Republican or Democrat.
I lurk at forums that cater to both sides of the aisle. I have been looking at this forum for more than 18 months. This post is the one finally brought me out of my shell and made me register and post here at DU. I have read disturbing things both here and at sites that are tilted to the Republican side of things.
Husb2Sparkly has posted lots of mean spirited things but this one takes the cake. "Joe the Plumber" was a nobody. Senator Obama sought out Joe, not the other way around. He was just a guy minding his own business, and he simply asked a question that Obama answered in a way that a lot of people don't like. Obviously Husb2Sparkly took a fair amount of personal offense to that one simple question and the response it brought from Senator Obama, and even more importantly the air time it has gotten in the media.
So in response to that Husb2Sparkly has managed to say, in just a few lines, that Joe:
is a "stupid fucking cockroach"
is a "lowlife"
has a "big fucking mouth"
leads a "miserable fucking life"
is a "hot shit"
And he is threatened to "just wait" because he will "NOT be happy about where this ends."
He will also have all his tax, police, and credit history splashed everywhere for the public to read. And on top of all of that he will be ruined and will be lucky to have a job as a RotoRooter man. The masturbation references and dirty underwear jokes are a really classy touch also.
So this is how the party of compassion treats someone who asks nothing more than a simple question of their candidate?
Just a plain US citizen concerned about his future. A citizen who didn't go to Obama, he was picked at random. And for that, that simple discretion of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and asking the wrong question, it is okay to take this guy apart, to rip him limb from limb. It is fine to advocate ruining the guys life, and for what?
For asking a question that Obama answered honestly? Well yeah, why not. Ruin him! That dirt bag has no right to ask a question that is going to give some inside view to what Obama has planned for our country!
I wonder if Husb2Sparkly could stand up under the same scrutiny. Would he cry foul if someone was putting his life under the microscope for the amazingly hateful angry things he has said on this very forum? This is not a personal attack. Search his posts and read the vile, hateful things he writes. Looks at the language he uses. How many of you would ever use that kind of language in front of friends and family. And yet those words are welcomed with open arms here.
I fully expect this post to be deleted and my account to be locked, in addition I am sure there will be much ridicule and "Freeper" accusations. But before that happens I hope at least one of the forum members that reads this gives pause to the awful road we are headed down here. A man who had different ideas than others asks a simple question, and in return his life is ruined, and many in this very thread applaud it. Is that the path we want to take? I know it is not the one I want to be on.
Fire when ready. I want to hear how a guy who is nothing more than your average American deserves to destroyed for being asked a question at random.
