yesterday an anti-semitic man with a rifle walked into the holocaust museum in washington d.c and began shooting. he killed an innocent security guard.
earlier this week a man was arrested who was planning on shooting president obama.
recently a doctor who was an abortion provider was shot to death by a right wing gunman in kansas.
and don't forget the right wing bombers who killed hundreds in oklahoma city when they blew up the federal building there.
and yet a few months ago republicans in congress were violently up in arms (pun intended) when it was revealed that the department of homeland security was investigating possible threats from right wing terrorists. the republicans called it 'unwarranted' and 'a witch hunt'. but yet look at the record. in the last 20 years how many democrats have taken up arms and shot people with whom they disagreed? i think the number stands at '0'. and in that same time how many republicans have taken up arms (or explosives) and killed people with whom they disagreed? the answer: many. sadly, tragically: very many.
the department of homeland security are clearly justified in investigating right wing hate groups. these groups routinely take up arms and shoot and kill innocent people with whom they disagree. they should be investigated and prosecuted. and i sincerely hope that the hate speech that has come from the mouths of right wing republicans and right wing tv and radio commentators will come to an end. right wing republicans in the united states have created an incredibly dangerous environment wherein innocent people are being killed by ignorant and violent right wing domestic terrorists.
