I have often posted my hate mail, but this has been a weekend full of hate Tweets. There were objections to my use of the term “teabaggers” to describe Saturday’s protesters. There is no awareness, it seems, of how they may have brought this upon themselves, choosing a symbol that could easily be conflated with a distasteful sexual term. It also doesn’t seem to occur to them that there are such things as synonyms. Some words have more than one meaning, totally separate and apart from each other. They infer what I don’t imply. Most amusing is the name-calling from those who accuse me of name-calling. And then there are the conservatives for whom I used to be their favorite pet liberal until this one egregious offense, after which I am now pond scum; to which I say your love for me couldn’t have been to solid to begin with.
Herewith, Some of the Hate Tweets:
