I have dear friends who watch commentators whose sarcasm, arrogance and contempt make my head hurt.
Some of these folks are spinners. Hatred one second. Compassion the next. The tolerance/intolerance shuffle.
Glenn Beck: U.S. under Obama is like Planet of the Apes
Gay marriage is no threat to the U.S.
Very clever. Beck assumes that Obama supporters are likely to support gay marriage. With one hand he giveth and with the other, he taketh away.
Others are fearmongers.
And then we have those who give us “tough love.”
I’m suspicious when “tough love” feels like somebody punched me in the face. And I’m not sure tough love really works that well. Neither hugging or slugging a thug works all the time (Dunn).
And sorry, I don’t want racists giving me advice. Good advice is good advice but I don’t need a side of poison with my chocolate shake.
Rethink who you let whisper in your ear. Contempt is catching.
