3. Yes, this is what the Republicans intend to recreate. I just wish people would quit acting surprised
A lot of talk I hear about the right wing sounds all too much like someone saying to Charles Manson, "but... but you wouldn't actually HURT anybody, would you?"

European history is full of right-wingers of various sorts, who tortured for pleasure, who condemned whole nations of brown people to a genocidal death.

Are we suffering from the belief in American exceptionalism - that Americans are somehow all better than that, even our fascists?

I guess I'd like to hear more of a military communique style of communication - "the enemy has moved to this position, and we'll need to respond here and here" instead of "oh, my god, are they really shooting live bullets at us? Mercy mercy mercy."
