Day 19: Someone That Pesters Your Mind

This is day 19 in my “30 Days of Letters” endeavor. It is supposed to be written to someone who “pesters my mind,” either in a good way or a bad way. I assume they don’t mean music that gets stuck in it.

Dear Conservative Right Wing of America (and the Tea Party) -

I don’t understand how you can be filled with so much vile hatred. For as much as you rant against individuals like me (queer folk, Jewish people, agonostic people, people with disabilities, sex educators, pornographers), as well as other minorities (immigrants, people of color, those in lower socio economic classes, those with different religious beliefs, etc), I don’t hate you. You spend your days trying to convince the world that people like me and those I care about are less than, are unworthy, are below you, and yet I don’t hate you. I think about you often, how you try to control me, to ruin my life and the lives of others, and yet, I don’t hate you.

So how can you, those people that cause so much pain and anger, those that are on top of this political dog pile, on top of the economy here when my partner and I are living paycheck to paycheck (with two Master’s degrees), be filled with so much hate, when I am not? I fight every day of my life to be validate and recognized, and yet that hatred doesn’t come naturally to me, and yet it seems to come so easily to you.

It boggles my mind.

    I personally don’t agree with your opening statements, but then I don’t have a blog, and neither do I spend much time reading comments on the various blogs I read.

    Most conservatives I know are not as you portray them, but neither are they silent on their own beliefs. Hatemongers exist everywhere on the net and they’ll spew their nonsensical rants at any thing and everything that will allow them a forum to do so, irregardless of their personal political beliefs. That they do bring up their politics makes as little sense as their rants. And you going off on your own tear about it, just verifies their means for existence. Sure this is your blog and you can say whatever you want, whenever you want, but pigeonholing haters as the “enemy” simply because you don’t agree with their politics, just lowers your own values.

    Haters exist at every level and in every religion, political party, or association that you can think of. Try as you might, you can’t ignore them, but you don’t have to become one by trying to out argue them. It never works.
    You just have to kill them all, because they will never change on their own. Too bad it’s sooooooo illegal.
