And I find out about it while trying to order flowers for MY GRANDMOTHER'S FUNERAL, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE.

I am losing my cool in the worst way possible. I posted this on Facebook. God, I know there are worse things happening just 300 miles southeast of me, but can you please back off for all of us for a while?

If only. *sigh*

Last night I was in a chatroom I occasionally frequent. While it is moderated, it is not heavily so and things have a tendency to go off the rail at times. Homophobia, misogyny, you name it. But this time one particular winner started going on about how bad Muslims were and how Jews were worse and that he would like to shoot them -- as a 'joke', of course. I got hold of the head mod and he shut the guy down. But still.

I've mentioned bits and pieces of my family history before. It may be readily apparent why I do not think that genocide is particularly good 'joke' material -- that is, if one is willing to accept that "I want to shoot people" is a good basis for a joke. Especially not now when politics in my homeland are being skewed by so much hatemongering and we have actual bollocking Nazis prancing about on the streets. There may be such a thing as freedom of speech, but there is also such a thing as consequences for your actions. And if someone preaches about how much he would like to kill me and my family, I DO NOT SEE HOW THERE CAN BE TWO SIDES TO THAT ISSUE.

The odd thing I've noticed in the US is that the large majority of statements that certain types of people ought to be killed, come from people who are quite proud of being unarmed and threaten people who, among other attributes, tend to be relatively well-armed.

Somehow I don't see that working out quite the way the threateners expect. Particularly since they generally include the military and police as targets for their hatred.
