Hatred on the left, fringe or the norm?

It seems a week doesn't go by where left leaning vitriol and hatred displays itself. Those on the left will claim this to not be representative of the left, but instead call it fringe behavior. I don't think so.

First, the image here is from the anti-war, anti-American protest in Oregon a few days ago where an American soldier was burned in effigy. Of course they didn't have Sean Penn's face on it, that was added by who humorously notes one can support something while simultaneously burning it in effigy. So I support Sean Penn's right to be a childish hateful American hater while at the same time displaying this image!

Sean gets this honor for his speech this weekend in Oakland where his hatred was unabashed and supported by a Congresswomen who was present, along with an enthusiastic crowd. With numerous celebrities and elected US Government officials regularly participating in very caustic hatred for American operations and our Commander & Chief my claim that this is not fringe behavior on the left is more supported than man caused global warming.

If you don't think so, present influential people on the right, celebrities on the right, gatherings of hundreds on the right where similar hate is directed at the left...just show me a few as compared to the dozen, or so, in the links I provide for my case on the left!
