The domestic terrorism yesterday has the right-wing wing nuts falling all over themselves finger-pointing and blaming all liberals and progressives for the horrific violence of yesterday. Violence that every liberal or progressive we know has denounced and denounced strongly. As one nutjob site put it… too late, your party owns it. Another right-wing notjob site put it this way, “Gun Violence” is a SYMPTOM of GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION, MALFEASANCE, POOR JUDGMENT, gross INCO}MPETENCE, and vicious, subversive propaganda spread by the megalomaniacal, INTERNATIONALIST moguls who run the ENEMEDIA –– and by the thoroughly corrupt EDUCATIONAL ESTABLISHMENT.
In the first instance the assertion is that only liberals and progressives are responsible for the domestic terrorism we witnessed again yesterday. In the second the view is that the government is responsible and therefore the hate towards government is justified and so is violence against the government you hate. That’s how we read it anyway.
Rather than coming together and uniting in our shared horror at such violence, work to resolve the problems, and put America first the partisans on the extreme right-wing choose to play the blame game. This they do while they conveniently forget or ignore this. And of course these nut jobs naturally pretend this just isn’t so, or put in the words of their leader fake.
As long as folks like these hold sway politically don’t plan on much, if anything, to change.
