Hate in my beloved California

I know I live in a beautiful bubble here in Santa Cruz, but I was still deeply saddened today see this recent footage from elsewhere in my home-state:

The things being yelled by the crowd are so vile that when an elected official came on screen to denounce what was happening as evil, I thought a voice of sanity was finally speaking.  But no, by evil she meant, according to the video, the American Muslim families attending a benefit to raise money for women’s shelters, hunger and homelessness alleviation here in the US.  I hate to think of my few, cherished Muslim friends ever having to go through this, but know they probably do encounter it, though in less dramatic ways, in their daily life.
