Hal Crother struggles to understand the recent surge in violence against persons of Asian descent.
Here’s a bit from his article:
What in hell were they (the persons doing the violence–ed.) thinking? Once again we encounter a wall of stupidity that’s much too high to scale. And we experience the same panic that seized us on Jan. 6. They CAN’T think! They are cognitively disconnected. Reality, for them, is like a distant star on a cloudy night, a light that never enters their field of vision. Yet they vote, they poke at their cellphones—-they reproduce, God help us. And one major political party not only embraces and encourages them, but depends on them, shapes its rhetoric to suit them, and shrinks to an electorally impotent size without them.
