The Executions Will Continue Until Morale Improves

In the wake of three mass shootings in as many weeks, I am realizing that I wrote about this, almost exactly three years ago. I was originally writing about the hatred whipped up against health care reform, but the radical right has kept whipping up the hatred. And now…this. My original article:

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves

I think I know the bottom line: someone is going to die. Too much crazy has been unleashed, too much negativity. Mobs at town halls. Death threats. And they're going to keep stirring the pot, until some dramatic act of violence happens, until the House caves, or until the House is back in session.

"For, without a cement of blood (it must be human, it must be innocent) no secular wall will safely stand."--WH Auden, Horae Canonicae, "Vespers."


It seems the leadership of the far right is encouraging domestic terrorism in the United States.

I HATE the particular form of "no-robot" capcha you are using - my eysight (with specs) is very good - I still have difficulty reading this, especially the number(s)!

I'm sorry about the captcha; it's a Google default and I don't know to change it. Thanks for your remarks.
