Reflections on Hate

July 2008 CCPM Newsletter:

This man’s actions [ed. note: Jim Adkisson] – and the deaths of two innocent victims – are the result of a culture of hatred, of division, of hyper-partisanship, of polarization – that is eating away at our society. Those of us who go to our peace vigils on Saturdays have seen this kind of hatred expressed against us for months now in curses, names, rants, lies, and everything hateful you can imagine. It only gets nastier, angrier, and more hateful as time goes on. A huge problem and result of this kind of behavior is that right-wing hate groups spread their venom, enabling and encouraging troubled souls like this man to engage in extreme actions that they might not otherwise have considered.

I am not willing to absolve Jim Adkisson of personal responsibility for what he did. There was more going on with his pysche than a ‘hatred for liberals’. Individuals that harbor pathological anger lash out and kill Amish school children, Virginia Tech students, and Columbine students. The killing is indiscriminate – Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Aethiests, UU’s, conservatives, liberals, democrat and republican – we are all in the cross-hairs of this pathological hate.

What potential enable individuals to violently act out? One needs to look no further than the ‘dialog’ publicly expressed by the Chester County Peace Movement. A peace movement that even Smedley Butler would have agreed is a ‘racket’

It is easy to discern the seeds of similar violent, divisive behavior being spoon fed via newsletters to a willing audience of the Chester County Peace Movement. A recent newsletter is quick to point blame at ‘right wing hate groups’ as being culpable for the murderous actions of this deranged man. What is the fruit of months upon months of constant demonization of the Victory Movement by the director of the CCPM? It culminated in a peace protester attacking a woman and and assaulting a police officer. Instead of this horrific incident being a reality check for the peace group, the leadership condoned the actions of two members that day and continues to stir discord and hatred towards the Victory Movement. The hatred rippling underneath the surface of the peace group revealed itself last week in an impromptu chant – “we hate Bush” directed to the membership of the Victory Movement.
In the July newsletter, it is chilling to realize that the director has given her membership another excuse and a potential role model for more violence directed at the Victory Movement.

How could a peace group advocate hatred? I’ll let the Chester County Peace Movement speak for itself regarding hate and violence:

October 14, 2007 – CCPM Newsletter:

The “Christian right” is on a campaign that is every bit as dangerous as the “jihad” that some characterize extremist Muslims as engaging in. Remember, people who have “God is on their side” will stop at nothing and truly believe that the ends justify the means – they can rationalize everything they do.

The word, “jack-booted” has been in my mind ever since these people first appeared. It means this: Cruelly and violently oppressive: “a revival of the aggressive, jack-booted militarism of the Thirties and Forties”.

These people were trained by someone in vicious taunting, in vile language, in cruel tactics. They are dogs on chains. My guess is that at least a couple of them – if, in fact they were ever in the military, and we cannot even believe that – have been trained in the military or elsewhere (Blackwater-type organizations?) in the most vile interrogation tactics.

March 22, 2008 John Meicht, CCPM assaults a woman and police officer.

March 22, 2008 CCPM Newsletter – Director defends assailant:

The vigiler who was at the center of all this apologized to us as he was released at the station. I told him, and I say this to you all – HE OWES US NO APOLOGY. Everyone has a breaking point. We are human……Angry. Bent out of shape. Shaking with rage. WE ALL LOSE IT – and an apology’s fine, but this vigiler has nothing to apologize for to any of us…..The “counterprotestor” group (for lack of another polite term) owes every one of us an apology.

Every one of these three is firmly anti-war, and all say that the Victory folks do not speak for them at all…… each one of these wonderful vets does not join us on Saturdays at peace vigils because they feel they would not be very peaceful towards the “we support the troops” people. Blood would flow…they stay away.

Letter to Editor – Daily Local News – April, 2008

He must also agree with comedian Rush Limbaugh, who is dreaming of violence at the Democratic convention this summer! What a great country these two envision for our children! Just shoot it out! Kill, kill, kill! Blood, blood, blood!

That “young girl” has shoved her camera in my face many times — I was fortunately able to suppress all my own urges to push it out of my face. That “young girl” has taunted me relentlessly for six months, and I suggest Mr. Kurth read some of that “young girl’s” hateful blogs.

A peace movement that is unwilling to see ther own culpability in our ‘culture of hatred, of division, of hyperpartisanship’ that lead individuals to acts of violence has the blood of the UU victims on their hands.

    Just as Jim Adkisson had a hatred of Christians, “Christian Fascist Guy” has a hatred of Christians. A hatred fanned no doubt by Karen Porter’s book selection for the CCPM, a hateful screed by Chris Hedges about, guess what, Christan Fascists.

    Just looking at “Christian Fascist Guy” a normal person would suspect he’s got a Helter Skelter moment just waiting to get out.

    Wow, delusional all the way. Sadly, she believes this drivel she spews, and it is astonishing how she and her people will twist everything that is holy about religion, and religious people, into “extremism”. One case of crazy, and we’re all to blame. Just because we believe in God, doesn’t put any of us into a category of extremism. The fact that likely few of them ever attend services, is no surprise. Their God is Obama, and they bow before him as a false God. We all know what happened to folks who did that in the past…

    If anyone hates Christians as much as Jim Adkisson, it’s Karen and “Christian Fascist Guy”.

    Both are very weird people, especially “Christian Fascist Guy” when he had that sign mocking Christmas.

    If Porter had any sense of responsibility, she’s worn the WCPD about “Christian Fascist Guy” because weirdos like Jim Adkisson inspire copycats.

    Where’s that photo of “Ballerina Man”, with pink socks, ballet slippers and feet in the Second Position? That’s a classic just like “Christian Fascist Guy”.

    Hate must be a family value for the peaceniks. Great post Skye – you totally expose these moonbats for who they really are.

    How well I remember that incidents, Skye. I’ll be in Lionville Saturday morning, so I’ll try to swing by afterwards for moral support! ;)

    So what Democrats are you supporting, Democrat?


  7. Trish

    Is there a Democrat out there who anyone cares to support?

    If they (of the house- Pelosi in particular) had any conscience they would not be going on vacation without signing this latest great energy bill- which calls for all of the required categories, wind, nuclear, solar AND drilling that is vitally necessary to get us on an energy path for the future.

    Only 17 democrats voted to stay and work on the bill, while the rest wanted to go on vacation. None of those 213 Democrats should be welcomed back in September.


    Not to mention that democrats still won’t admit the successes in Iraq, and that stubborness should not be rewarded either.

    Skye will probably support any democrats who share her values; WHAT ABOUT IT????????

  9. Skye

    Where are the dems now? Running away instead of drilling…

    I was just in Knoxville, TN attending a training class. So got a dose of the local news while not paying attention to national news. So not sure if this came out nationally.

    It seems Adkisson’s ex-wife about a decade ago attended this church. She had also filed a restraining order against him since he threatened to kill her and then himself. Another fact from local coverage is the news he was unemployed. It is true the letter pulled from his vehicle screamed about how the liberals have poisoned things, but taken in context of the other facts Adkisson becomes a tragic figure of a man who needed help and never found it; so two innocent people were murdered by this man.
    As the CCPM newsletter shows, liberals who are often all for being compatssionate abou criminals; are not being soft with Adkisson because he suits their agenda of being persecuted by Christians. Which says loads about them.

    That’s tremendous work, Skye. Their views are so warped. Christian extremists are as dangerous as radical practicioners of Islam?! It’s such an ignorant statement. We’ve been trained? Yes, I confess I was trained by my parents to use common sense. I wasn’t a part of the movement until the past few months. Were the men of CCPM always this confrontational with the women of CCVM? -MIKE K.
