I posted yesterday's piece a day too soon. It didn't take long for another act of domestic terrorism by "Second Amendment Remedy".
Now in Charleston South Carolina we have yet another church massacre by the crazed hate cult of the American radical Right.
"I have to do it. You rape our women and you're taking over our country. And you have to go." – Right Wing terrorist Dylann Roof, according to survivors.
I'll say it again.
What's wrong with this picture? Who feeds into this hate and paranoia?
Remember that incident in a Universal Unitarian Church in Tennessee when a right wing terrorist killed and wounded the parishioners for being "liberals"? Adkisson even wrote a manifesto urging the ideological murder of every liberal. He immersed himself in the writings of Hannity, O'Reilly, Savage and other right wing extremists.
How much human sacrifice is enough?
There's not much an individual can do, except to call out the hate and ignorance that so often perverts Americans into seeing other Americans as the enemy.
There is a great institutionalized evil upon our land that desires and nurtures this mentality...as the flag of the American slave states proudly flies over the State House in South Carolina...
I would add this.
"I have to do it. You rape our women and you're taking over our country. And you have to go."
If either God or the voices in his head told him to do this, he would be delusional and psychotic. Otherwise he's likely a homicidal racist and terrorist. If not psychotic, his lack of regard for human life and suffering would present him as a sociopath at minimum. The "taking over our country" bit is standard rhetoric of the far Right and hate groups who have demanded, "We want our country back", since Obama took office.
