Words of people who scare me

Here are just some examples of how someone on facebook’s  own words have been used historically against others in the US alone, from our nation’s beginnings until this very day. These are why I am scared by people who think like her, because they have far too often gotten their way, and we have always lived to regret it when they do.

Do you know  any similar examples? Let me know via the comments….
