Bigots and bullies recently held a rally outside the headquarters of the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. The purpose of this rally, apparently, was to protest the existence of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative-leaning think tank. In other words, the purpose of the rally was for the attendees to protest the existence of people who are different than them. 

“We need to go find out where they live, where they go to church, who they hang around with, and bird dog they asses,” said one of the speakers, according to Breitbart News. Fellow bigots and bullies cheered and yelled, “hell yeah.”

In case anyone needs to be told this, it’s disgusting and despicable to hold a rally protesting the existence of people who are different than you.

It’s disgusting and despicable to hold a rally outside a place where people work, with the intention of intimidating the people who work there.

It’s disgusting and despicable to call for people who are different than you to be stalked, harassed, and “bird dogged” (whatever the heck that means).

It’s disgusting and despicable to cheer or express agreement when someone calls for such a thing.

It’s disgusting and despicable that our society tolerates these behaviors and allows people (and I use that term loosely) to engage in them with no consequences. 

These behaviors demonstrate complete intolerance for diversity, for dissent, and for anyone who differs from the norm in any way. Anyone who engages in these behaviors is a bigot and a bully. 

As for the aforementioned speaker at the rally, I think that someone needs to find out where he lives, where he goes to participate in whichever activities he participates in (because the odds that he goes to church are probably pretty slim), and whom he hangs out with, and then “bird dog” his ass. In fact, I think these things should be done to each and every excuse for a human being who attended the rally. 

Maybe then they would gain some understanding of the harm that they are inflicting on other people through their disgusting and despicable words and actions.

Or, as this meme posted by the Nashville Tea Party so eloquently (and correctly) expresses:
