Tea Party spews hatred against Muslims in Orange County

This YouTube shocks me as much as the violence in Libya. How can Americans let themselves be dragged down by hatred and ignorance?

The Muslim community gathered at a fundraiser for a women’s shelter and a vicious crowd waving American flags insulted them. Muslim families were there with their children. Their children had to be exposed to such ugliness – and right here in America, in Orange County.

Tea Party and Republican officials made up the group. Congressman Ed Royce (R) spoke. Villa Park Councilwoman Deborah Pauly (R) made a most vitriolic speech. She said herself she didn’t care if  “you call me crazy.” She even had the chilling nerve to mention her 19-year old Marine son who would join with other Marines to send people to paradise. I can’t help but see her as a nascent Gaddafi.

This is no better than the Ku Klux Klan. Shame on you. Stop watching so much Fox News. Turn the channel sometime and get another perspective. What are you afraid of?

But watch and judge for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NutFkykjmbM
