So Much For Tolerance

13 04 2012

While many people are frustrated with politicians for their lack of attempts to bridge the partisan gap and build bipartisan legislation to help fix our country, some “moderates” are attacking people and leaving America asking where has the tolerance in the country gone.

Apparently over the summer, Maine State Rep. Chuck Kruger (D-Thomaston) expressed his not so nice opinions of Dick Cheney via Twitter, “Cheney deserves same final end he gave Saddam. Hope there are cell cams.” Rep. Kruger is the Democrat chair of Maine’s legislature’s Moderate Caucus.

First of all, this is not an acceptable thing to say by anyone, much less anyone who is portraying himself as being moderate. This is just a shame that something like this would occur while our country is in such a vulnerable state.

Secondly, our media system has failed us by not reporting on this until now. This tweet was sent in August, and no one in our media has even mentioned until now, and that I have only seen it reported in small local papers. This is something that is important to show the intolerance of politicians in our country today. It is an absolute fail by our media system to ignore something this controversial.

Here is my source for the day:
