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.”

Of course the media hasn’t been too privy not to say exactly the same thing, only with the names switched. There’s been nonstop coverage on CNN and MSNBC over the past three days casting Trump’s rhetoric as extreme, insightful of violence, hiw Twitter feed as a ‘hitlist’ for whoever this d-bag is; blaming Trump personally for what’s happening, while they simultaneously calling out all supporters of the president as homophoic and racist.

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, and so, indeed, in the process ring in the apocalypse. Is that the actual point of that story (revelations in the bible)?

It’s certainly the point of Taxi Driver.
