Fanatics of ALL Stripes

Two things that caught my eye recently...both interestingly related...

Facebook Follies

Please, please, please...someone try to defend this. I beg you. Had this group been created about George W. Bush I would have been just as outraged. Since when is it funny, hip, ironic, cool or even moral to call for the death a President? That's what this does, and quite frankly I find it disgusting.

South Park Creators Threatened
The creators of the quasi-cartoon South Park, Matt Parker and Trey Stone, have been threatened with death by a Muslin extremist group. Now I don't know how credible the threat is, but it doesn't matter, as in this day and age you have to take this stuff seriously. For the record I don't really like South Park, but gee, I express that feeling by simply not watching the show.

You are free to make all the connections you want between these two items.
