At Common Dreams, Abby Zimet is scared.
Organizers of the Women’s March have announced a July 14 protest in Fairfax, Virginia against an NRA so emboldened by the accursed times they've now followed up their recent, incendiary, let's-shoot-all-them-liberals ad with yet another stunningly bellicose screed. In the sinister new video, titled “We Don’t Apologize for Telling the Truth,” right-wing talk-show and NRATV host Grant Stinchfield begins with a snarling response to progressives objecting to the first ad: “You call it dangerous and demand it to be taken down? I’m here to tell you not a chance,” he sneers menacingly. Those of you on the violent left who claim we believe there’s an ‘us’ and ‘them’ in this country, you’re absolutely right. There are those of us who believe in freedom then there are those of you who actively burn down our country because you can’t get over the fact that your so-called progressive didn’t win the election. Get over it and grow up."Here's the video in question, judge for yourself.
Reflect for a moment, dear reader, that Representative Scalise is back in hospital, with further surgery to treat an infection. Then ask yourself why the Hamburg rapid transit operators are live-tweeting service interruptions this day. Who has not grown up here?
