So tonight, I stumbled upon a semi-older Fox news article during some of my readings titled “Frightful poll Sends Democrats Screaming!” that talked about Obama’s approval rating dropping to 43%. After reading the article I decided to see how their comments section community was, as compared to a more Liberal setting… I have to say… It was frightening… I really, truly, want to believe that the far right isn’t made up of racists lunatics… But this little walk through enemy territory did absolutely nothing to cleanse that image from my mind. Here are some examples…
I don’t think I could make this stuff up even if I tried… I would say it’s funny, but I actually find it kind of horrifying… Especially all of the racist / Immigrant-phobic comments… I know there are good Republicans out there, but the one’s commenting on the Fox news website certainly aren’t among them… I feel it’s necessary to say that I don’t truly believe Republicans are my “enemy,” I only use that word to imply opposing political parties, and it made a catchy title!
