Wait a minute…

I’m sorry… I thought it was illegal to incite people to violence… I’m sure I read that somewhere. It’s like… a law, or something… Isn’t it? So why isn’t this guy being prosecuted? Oh… That’s right… Silly me… Because the rules don’t apply to him. He get’s to do whatever he wants to do. Because he’s rich. It’s all a part of that income divide. You know… the wealth gap, that doesn’t exist… It’s the universal Golden Rule. Those who have the gold get to make the rules. Enjoy you’re primaries, people. Be sure to get out there and force all other Americans to your way of thinking. And don’t forget – use any means necessary to ensure that freedom’s light continues to shine. Intimidation, bullying, gerrymandering, denial of voter rights, lies… Plain ol’ self-dellusional thinking… All these are just more arrows in the quiver, more bullets in the clip. Praise Reagan we’ve still got our God-given open carry laws to sustain us. After all… these are the principles that made America great in the first place. …

Violence…

Do not be deceived… Don’t let the powerful, the greedy or the insecure fool you into their way of thinking. To argue and lobby against you, and to use the media to bend you to their version of events, is the same thing as to chase after you with pitchforks and firebrands. That you do not see it as such only speaks to the completeness of their victory. You’ve become all too comfortable with letting others define the terms of the debate – those who might have very good reasons for wanting you to remember certain interpretations, while denying any other viewpoints even exist. So allow me here, today, to add my voice to that overarching crescendo of human caterwauling we seem to live under.
