ISIS: ‘Michelle Obama is worth $40 as a sex slave,’ and Twitter conservatives react exactly as expected.
They would claim to be patriotic. Yet they spit racist, sexist hatred at our Nation’s First Lady. They do not merely disrespect the position and the person. This isn’t about ISIS, or sex slaves. Nor is it about political disagreement. At this level of hatred, politics is no longer a reason underlying anger. Politics is the conduit for deep seated racism.
What they are doing is expressing the centuries old belief that certain groups have no value as persons.
We have a hard won right to free speech, and this is how some choose to exercise it.
