I didn't comment on the Hiroshima memorial day, but in respect for the hundreds of thousand innocent, civilian dead, and what surely must be one of the greatest single-act war crimes of all time, I thought I'd share this fascinating little howler: my number one candidate for most insensitive post ever. This guy says: "Served you right, motherfuckers, now let that be a lesson to you." That's a direct quote.

This sort of language is all over American right-wing blogs. "You brought it on yourselves", "that's what you get", "that's the price you pay" etc. I propose the following rule of political discourse: you are not allowed to say things this big unless you actually fully understand what you're saying. For instance: unless you are capable of saying it directly to the face of each and every one of the victims.

Petty, vengeful minds tend to veer to the right, for some reason. Go figure, as they say.

Well, sure. It's not that I like left-wing politics. I just find right-wingers to be unpleasant, with bad B.O and lousy taste in clothes.
