When did some of my friends turn into crackpots, racists and homophobes?

When?
When Obama won the election and your enlightened associates realized America had sunk into Socialist depravity?

Just a guess. :)

Re: When?
Well I was specifically hoping that Iago didn't share that sentiment, but yes, it's getting to that point, too. Were we liberals that bad with 8 years of Bush? I mean, I remember things being particularly bad after each election (particularly 2004, as it was simply unimaginable), but didn't things calm down? Eventually we all accepted that even if he'd "stolen" the election, we'd accept him (for the time being, at least), right? It didn't keep up the whole time, did it? (Well, at least not until EVERYBODY realized the huge mistake that had been made, even the neocons...) I know the left has its loonies, but what scares me is the ones of the right have GUNS.

I think I'll keep you guessing. :)

I'm fairly certain you were jesting, but still, an answer would put my mind at ease.

Some probably always have been, but the intarweb gives them enough signal boost to be noticed.

Maybe, maybe not. Facebook, particularly, seems to bring out the CRAZY and the DRAMA.

We've always been. But you are genteel and over look lots of our faults. Plus this is the time for crazy to come out big time.

Probly when you started discussing politics. This is why I never discuss politics or religion with anyone I'd like to stay friends with :)

When the crackpots are talking about New World Orders and Obama = Hitler, they're not so easily ignored. And, alas, one friend advocates killing all homeless people, and another thinks the fight for marriage equality is a waste of time (and not for ideaological reasons, either). :(

Well, yes, I didn't need them classified, I'm just kind of shocked that people I'm friends with are displaying such abhorrent behavior out of thin air.

Oh, and let's not forget your friend on FB. I'm sure she's not homophobic, but her comments were less than sensitive.

Keeping tabs, no; gently explaining the error, yes. We've already communicated and all is well (and I also managed to find the interview where she denies being intersexed - turns out the rumor was from a video with questionable "evidence" and a satire website reporting things that she never actually said, hence the birth of an urban legend on the 'net).

And you are what you are, but hopefully if folks explain why what you do makes them uncomfortable, you're at least aware of it, and might make some different decisions the next time.
