I jokingly wished a Christian friend “Happy Kwanza.” Her reply was “Go fuck yourself!” After the dust settled, I asked her what the deal was and she said, “I am not a fucking nigger.” Then she proceeded to tell me that America is a Christian nation, without any sense of irony. I know exactly where she gets this aggressiveness. I recently was (barely) able to stomach the first eight pages of mAnn Coulter’s How to Talk to a Liberal (If you must.) Comparitively, I also recently started reading Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. While he is a far worse human being than Coulter (but only because she didn’t kill six million Jews), Coulter’s book was much more vitreolic, but interestingly what they do hold in common is an irrational hatred for a segment of the population, of course the Jews for Hitler and the Liberals for Coulter. I do recall that Hitler hated liberals as well, but I am not that far into the book. Ok, only the first part of the post had something to do with Christmas, but I thought it was important to give some perspective, and some examples of other people who had irrational hatred for people that thought (or think) differently than them.
