Ladies and gentlemen, you will have to forgive me for this wee rant today but I have been ticked off for the past several days because of some pretty nasty things some jerk said to me. My creative thoughts will be stifled until I get this crap off of my chest. I do not like to use this blog as a rant dump, but today is just one of those days.
I hope the jerk that ticked me off reads this! And I hope that some of you out there can relate to what I am about to say….
The other day on my Facebook, I was on one of my political rants about so-called “liberals” and this “friend” who is apparently on the right-wing lunatic fringe started posting extremely profane comments on the thread. He called me names that began with a “c” and a “b” and pretty much everything in between, and told me that he thought anarchists should be lined up and shot to death.
(For those of you who don’t know, I am an anarchist, and I am used to that guy’s brand of volatility…)
He went on and on with his macho flag-waving super patriotism whilst I shoved my finger down my throat and gagged, disappointed that he couldn’t see me mocking him and his American exceptionalism. For every “America is the greatest nation on earth” comment he threw at me, I pointed out American imperialism all over the world and how innocent young troops were being duped into killing loads of civilians overseas for corporate interests.
His flag-waving (and apparently his drinking) continued, and so did my eye-rolling.
Then came this:
your [expletive] grandparents were nazis or nazi sympathizers, no? or they simply sat back and let hitler come to power. so you are german? Huh…that helps expalin (sic) some of your sick [expletive] views. and if you hate america, why the [expletive] are you here?
Out of all 74 comments on that thread, that one ticked me off more than any other. People know I am very protective of my family and that I am proud of my German heritage. And they also know that I loathe, hate, despise and abominate the Nazis more than anything in this world. I refuse to associate with anyone who uses such vile and disgusting language in my presence.
The funniest part is that the jerk thinks I hate America because I am 110% against war regardless of how “just” the government says it is. It’s as if he thinks military action and bombs are the only things that define America.
I do not forgive people like that. They are dead to me. I also do not forget it when they call my family—whom they have never met—Nazi sympathizers just because they happen to be German.
He certainly is not the only person to call me derogatory names. I am used to criticism. But he just found out that I do not sit around and take it for long. I cut negative people out of my life. I do not feel the need to help them through their addictions and mental issues, especially when they have gone out of their way to be nasty to me. Forget it, buddy. You messed with the wrong chick.
I do apologize to everyone for this long-winded rant, but I just had to get it off my chest and let it go because it has bothered me for longer than I want it to. Now back to regularly scheduled blogging…
I feel loads better now!
