It has become increasingly apparent over the past two years that civility in dialogue, particularly among many Conservatives, is a thing of the past. Again and again, through tea parties, birthers, and other nonsense, they have proven themselves incapable of coherent thought.
Note: There are plenty of people who hold to a conservative viewpoint for intelligent, well-thought out reasons. This is not about them. This has more to do with the misguided paranoia currently running rampant through their movement.
A new Harris Poll that will be released in full tomorrow illustrates this point well. According to their findings:
67% of Republicans believe that Obama is a Socialist.
57% believe that Obama is a Muslim.
45% say that Obama was “not born in the United States and is not eligible to be president.”
38% say that Obama is “doing many of the things Hitler did.”
24% say that Obama “may be the Antichrist.”
There is really nothing else that can be said about these people, but it is sad to see that so many Americans are so eaten up with hatred and spite that they would completely divorce themselves from reality.
