Upset with the incredibly disgusting hate rally against Muslims in Yorba Linda?
It’s heart-breaking. Over 300 hate-mongers, waving American flags, shout at Muslims as they enter a fundraiser to raise funds for battered women and the homeless.
Then let’s use our voices to stand against this. You can contact the two congressmen who were at the protest:
Gary Miller: 714.257.1142
Ed Royce: 714.634.2340
OR SEND A MESSAGE:

I would like to bring attention to recent actions by elected officials of the State of California. On February 13th, a group of Muslims gathered to raise money for woman’s shelters and to help relieve homeless and hunger in the US at a Yorba Linda community center. Outside, there was what one could call a protest.
Although many of those attending this so called protest held American flags, their actions were the antithesis of what it means to be an American. It is an absolute right for anyone in this country to protest. But what happened on February 14th showed some of the ugliest display of bigotry and racism in the modern world. The Muslim attendees were called pedophiles, terrorists, and were repeatedly verybally abused. The fact that there were Muslim children attending the event could not stop the shrills of this angry mob.
Beyond the hate speech, local Councilwoman Deborah Pauly stated “as a matter of fact, I know quite a few marines who will be very happy to help these terrorists to an early meeting in paradise.”
If this does not echo inciteful hate speech, I’m not sure what does.
Other elected officials that were present included both Gary Miller (R-Caifornia) and Ed Royce (R-California).
I want it on the record that this does not reflect the ideals of America. The notion that an elected official can issue a veiled death threat is deplorable.
Whether her comment has any sort of legal consequence, should be left up to the lawyers.

Wow. WOW. Pathetic.
Yet another reason I’m completely embarrassed by what this country is becoming. WTF.
Good job Mike Bloomberg on your new advertisement supporting gay marriage. I’m glad that you appreciate that this is a civil rights issue, and it’s been a long time since we agreed on something. So thanks.

“Planned Parenthood is the target of this legislation, and American women the primary victims. This isn’t about abortion — it’s about cutting access to health care for women. One in five American women has used Planned Parenthood’s services. The vast majority of care —…

I love that this kid (who is probably some sort of musical prodigy or just really precious) sent a handwritten letter to the New York Times. And I love the Schumann vs. Tchaikovsky cartoon, followed by “1a. Uh-huh you get the picture.”
