Hate Speech is Dangerous

Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern did not have had sex with a prostitute, she did something much much worse. She gave a hate-filled fearmongering speech that reminds me of a 1930's film called "Rats." It is chilling to hear this:

Hate is never ok. This sort of fearmongering hate speech is unacceptable for anyone, much less an elected official.I do not doubt that she has what she sees as good intentions, and I have no doubt that she believes what she is saying, but this sort of person is incapable of seeing the dangerous side effects of their words. They do not understand that they are contributing a culture where killing is ok.

We have to stand up and let our voices be heard. Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern has to resign.
