There is far worse that is extremely violent that Americans are either indifferent about, or actually enjoy. Like "bombing the sh-t out of brown people" in these perpetual foreign wars... Where is the outrage over that?
Isn't mass murder at least as offensive as certain words?.. This is how completely twisted this country has become. I am old enough to remember when Americans were more consistently offended. I can remember when there were huge civil rights and anti-war movements that happened during the same time period.
Can't we say as Americans that our foreign policy is at least as bigoted as the use of the "f" word?.. Shouldn't we as Americans be at least equally disturbed about both?
I would settle for that much right now as an anti-war activist. If only other people in the world were respected as much. Just as much, that would be huge help.
We wouldn't tolerate our government and its allies bombing the sh-t out of gay people, would we? How is it in any way acceptable for our government to engage in the wholesale slaughter of anybody else?
Just some perspective coming from someone in their 50s... If I was younger, would I give a damn?.. Do any of you?
