Thursday Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi started to break down a bit while talking about the rhetoric being bandied about in the latest round of “not my government/president.” She said it reminded her of the environment in San Francisco during the 1970s that resulted in the violent death of one Harvey Milk, an openly gay politician. As I’ve written before on the blog, many of the individuals profiting from riling up the masses don’t care if there could be a lone nut somewhere taking them all too seriously about their fearmongering. It’s all fun and Tea Parties until someone gets hurt.
Of course, if someone DOES get hurt I’m sure the great Round Robin of “Not My Fault” will drown the airwaves. Heaven forbid a fearmongerer take responsibility for their fearmongering.
