Reader finds ridiculing handicapped people ‘disgusting’

I don’t know who these people are. They go to rallies and the speaker gets up and makes fun of and ridicules a handicapped person, or makes fun of and mocks a woman who has been sexually molested. When he does this, these people applaud and cheer and clap and laugh. How disgusting.

My father was handicapped. He walked with a limp most of his life. He was shot in the ankle in World War II. It could have been him they were laughing at.

I don’t know who these people are. Sadly, I’m not sure I want to know.
