Here are two comments that came in today from an activist e-mail discussion group. I reprint them anonymously:
“This is so much more an important point in history than , say ’67 or ’68. That was just about the war. This is about stopping a hopefully temporarily ascendant faction that wants to move us back to 1850, child labor laws and all. Their complete lack of empathy and compassion is so astonishing it makes one think a party has emerged catering solely to sociopaths and psychopaths.”
“We should mail brown shirts to all the right wing Republicans in the House.”
It’s funny how it hits me reading comments like these. We don’t want to believe this sort of thing is happening, of all places, in America. But it is.
