From the “WTF Is Wrong With People?” file

Speaking of right-wing terrorism, here’s a little item that will reaffirm your faith in the inherent goodness of the human race… NOT.

Yesterday the campaign manager for Arkansas Democrat Ken Aden arrived home with his kids to find the family cat dead on the porch, with the word “LIBERAL” scrawled on its side in felt pen.

(Caution before clicking link below: graphic image of animal cruelty.)

Can the state of politics in the USA degenerate any further?

One shudders to imagine.

UPDATE:  For those who don’t want to click the link, the full story without picture is also here.  But, the blogger linked above has posted the image further down the post, so as not to be the first thing you see, and also has a warning that the image below is graphic.

    Who the f- – – are these people and what drives them to such madness.

    Thanks for the link warning, I did not click. Reading about it is enough for me.

      The picture actually isn’t that “graphic”, it’s just an obviously dead cat (no blood or anything like that). The writing on him was what was so shocking to me :( :evil:

    It’s just another example of what partisanship and the party system have in store for us – given a few more election cycles we will see that sort of thing happening here because hyper-partisans are not bright enough to learn from it.

      stageleft!!! (I gave you a shout out earlier. See a few posts down.)

      But yes, this is where hyperpartisanship ultimately goes: opponents being demonized to the point where they’re considered not only subhuman, but so evil that they deserve to have horrible things done to them. And nobody ever learns, it just perpetuates the Us vs. Them.

      Hope all’s well with you, you’ve been missed.

    I couldn’t click through either. Killing harmless animals is psychopathic. Makes you wonder what kind of supporters Ken Aden’s opponent attracts. (And it being Arkansas, I wouldn’t be surprised if the killer considers himself/herself a XTIAN.)

    I feel so bad for the Aden family. I’d be traumatized if I came home to that.

    It’s because of all those right-wing blogs saying that the USA is doomed if that commie, America hating, Muslim, Kenyan gets another term in office. The same idiots that boo a decorated soldier just because he is gay.

    This is why my brother’s cat is a strictly-indoor cat.

    Saw the post JJ, sent you a Twitter DM with my email address a few days ago – you can see it attached to this comment in the WP admin panel – give me a shout :-)
