More bombs have been found sent to Joe Biden and Robert DeNiro today, bringing the total number of bombs sent to prominent liberal figures to nine over the past three days.
In response, President Trump said at a rally last night: “The media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stories, have to do it, have to do it.” Yes, irony is a helluva drug, but that doesn’t make the statement any less true.
Of course, the media has not been privy not to say exactly the same thing, only with the names switched. There has been NONSTOP coverage on CNN and MSNBC over the past three days casting Trump’s rhetoric as extreme, insightful of violence, his Twitter feed as a ‘hitlist’ for whoever the hell this d-bag sending these bombs may be; blaming Trump personally for what’s happening while they simultaneously call out all supporters of the president as homophoic and racist as if that has no effect on how people perceive politics only reciprocates sending the irony level to about a THOUSAND.
Are some of them homophoic and racist? Yes, and there some liberals who are ‘heterophobic’ and… racist (I get the social context, and the history of discrimination, but that’s a political argument; if you hate white people simply for the color of their skin (or are going to assume their character/personal capability for morality or decency because of the color of their skin), then you’re no different than someone who’s going to do the same thing only to a black person (and the same thing goes for sexual orientation: the way I think has nothing to do with who I fuck, unless you want to argue some kind of actual permanence or legitimacy to racists or homophobes)).
Luckily, none of these bombs have actually reached their targets, and there have reports that they may not have even been built to go off in the first place. But the damage is being done (as it always is lately): people are freaking out. I’m starting to think that the issue here isn’t so much an Absolute proclivity to emotions, but a simple addiction to outrage. Either way, the HERO (as far as all of these partisan hacks are concerned) who finally accomplishes ringing in the apocalypse will certainly be praised as such by her respective side, and decried a demon by the other. So, indeed, does the process ringing in the apocalypse strut towards its goal.
Is that the real point of that story (revelations in the bible)?
Anyway, it’s the point of Taxi Driver.
