Yes Virginia, there is no God

At least there isn’t a merciful and caring one.

If there were, he/she wouldn’t permit maggots like Sarah Palin, Rick Santorium, Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck to spout their hateful and derisive rhetoric.

Mostly he wouldn’t allow them to try and force their religious beliefs on everyone (and neither would have our founding fathers).

If there is a God, it is more likely he/she is a mean spirited, mischievous entity not worthy of our allegiance.

The Nazification of America

It may not look anything like Hitler’s Germany, and no one may be calling for the annihilation of a single race, but there is no doubt the direction the right wing neocons would like to see this country move.

As long as the likes of Sarah Palin, Chuck Grassley, and Glenn Beck, are permitted to display complete utter contempt for the truth, and spew their hateful and derisive speech, then be roundly cheered by the right wing media, and a small, yet [very] vocal, ill informed, and naive group of followers, there is no doubt where this country is headed.

A person who holds and acts brutally in accordance with extreme racist or authoritarian views.

That is the definition of a Nazi, and there is no doubt in this authors mind the likes of Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and Chuck Grassley, and the entire right wing, neo conservative movement represent those extreme views.

It may not be so evident at this point, but the subtleties are still there, and if the rest of us just sit back, like the Jews did in pre WWII Germany, then the US is destined for the same fate.

I just hope I’m not around to see it happen.
