From D-Day, reflecting on the Unitarian Church shootings last summer.
. . . this (the church shootings-ed.) is the fruit of a conservative movement which wraps its attacks on Democrats and liberals all too frequently in the language of eliminationism, preying on resentment (“Liberals are taking your hard-earned money for nothing”) and fear of the other to cast the opposition party as an enemy to be fought, physically if necessary. With the economy sure to be on the skids for a while, it won’t be long until the anger from the right builds, and seeks blame in their opponents. And obviously, this can lead to the kind of incidents we see with Jim Adkisson, who specifically cited conservative media for giving him a road map to channel his anger.
Unspoken but clear is his concern of more violence from the Right.
What I find truly maddening is that many of these haters wrap themselves, not just in the American flag, but also in the Christian flag.
Doesn’t seem right. But it is Rightwing.
