Shut 'Er Down
I think we've sunk far below deserving democracy. Thanks to the RWS™ and their willing listeners, the constant efflux of hatred and paranoia discharging like pus from Fox "news," insane conspiracies promulgated by and to the aggrieved and frightened, people have been whipped to a frenzy of polarization. How pathetic is this (partial summary):
There's no doubt that the right-wing purveyors of lies and fomenters of hate wouldn't care about the damage they've done to democracy if they were capable of understanding it.
If there's the occasional crazy talk on the left, a brick thrown here or there, there's simply no equivalent on that side: no media that so constantly and deliberately lie as Fox "news" does. No radio jockeys that spew the hate-filled rhetoric of a Rush Limbaugh or Ann Coulter. Why? Because liberals don't do it, or need it. True conservatives don't either; but there's nary a one left in today's Republican party or on their bought-and-paid-for airwaves.
Don't forgive them, fathers; they know exactly what they do.
