What kind of people want to get people killed?

Just read something that has shaken me pretty bad.

"Just across the street, hundreds of their mostly white neighbors were there for decidedly different reasons. They leaned in front of local businesses The Daily Bagel and Rick's Smoke Shop wearing military fatigues and bulletproof vests, with blue bands tied around their arms. Most everyone seemed to be carrying something: flags, baseball bats, hammers and axes. But mostly, they carried guns.

They said they came with shotguns, rifles and pistols to protect their downtown businesses from outsiders. They had heard that antifa, paid by billionaire philanthropist George Soros, were being bused in from neighboring cities, hellbent on razing their idyllic town."

That article chilled me to the bone. It's worth a read if you haven't yet. Chilled me for multiple reasons. First, that anyone could believe the tripe that brought these people out. Secondly, that this tripe was passed on and abetted by Police departments AND by a COLONEL of the National Guard. The main bozo in that town pushing this I can almost understand. He just wanted to sell more guns and ammo. Imagine that...... putting peoples lives in danger so he could make a few extra bucks.

Fox and AM rightwing hate radio AND facebook bear the blame for this kind of shit. What has happened to our country when people will knowingly and willfully stir up the low information yahoos among us to the point of this kind of crap? People will DIE because some of the scummier of us want to make a few bucks?!? Its hard for me to believe that Fox, facebook etc don't know this stuff to be false and tbh I suspect their "ideological purity" too. Hannity, Rush and their ilk has to KNOW what they are doing is wrong but make too much doing it to care. I..... I could go on and on but will cease my rant.

2. I'm honestly wondering if they HATE this country?

There's several things about this country that I haven't liked over the years, like the pointless wars that killed innocent people (and the election of Trump). I've never hated this country as a whole, though.

I looked up Rupert Murdoch's background a few days ago, pondering the idea that he secretly hated the USA. Turns out that his father was a big fan of Lenin and always kept a bust of him in their house.

It probably means nothing, but imagine the right-wing reaction if some Democrat was known to grow up with a bust of Lenin in their house?

4. It's crystal clear that these idiots WANT to get into a fight,

You know, a real fight, like Rambo would get into -- except that they're a lot more likely to get into a firefight with a busload of ten-year-old kids. Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll shoot each other.

Declaring victory over an enemy that doesn't exist.
