It works the same on a national scale. First taunts and insults, then violence.
Today in a political act of violence, the head of the Democratic Party in Arkansas was gunned down. Two weeks ago a man walked into a Unitarian Universalist Church in Tennessee and killed two and wounded seven during a children's music program.
Taunted by talk radio, egged on by pundits, these people are the weapons in the right-wing's bullying. Were they mentally ill? Sure they were, but they still were doing what they thought was right, what they thought would help their cause.
Remember this: political violence in this country is almost always Conservative on Progressive:
Dr. Martin Luther King
just to name a few . . .
