Yorba Fea

Yorba Linda is famous as a president's birthplace. Now it's famous for the anti-Muslim rhetoric during protests against a Feb. 13 charity event at the Yorba Linda Community Center. The YouTube video has over 600,000 hits. The Washington Post's coverage is here. At "Slate," Glenn Greenwald writes:
I think what was most striking about that video is that the presence of small children didn't give these anti-Muslim protesters even momentary pause; they just continued screeching their ugly invective while staring at 4-year-olds walking with their parents. People like that are so overflowing with hatred and resentments that the place where their humanity -- their soul -- is supposed to be has been drowned.
