Pumpkin really knew the issue that would get Joe Sixpack off the couch, didn’t he?
In a disgustingly predictable development, the (Pumpkin-appointed) FBI director has said, “it does not appear motive was racially motivated.” Yeah, he just had a bad day.
A huge component of the ongoing tradition of American violence against everyone who doesn’t look like a 16th Century Northern European is, that all victims who are not lily-white are to blame somehow for their own persecution. Because white men can’t possibly be in the wrong.
Treason is treated the same as murder – winked at when you’re white. And racism continues strong as the American brand.
The remnants of the idiocracy of the past four years will be with us for a while, sad to say.
I had this comfortable illusion that Rochester was just a little better. That maybe the Daniel Prude affair was a fluke and would be dealt with in a way that would show us to be a good example.

Georgia (Georgia!) flipped the Senate blue. Pumpkin showed his true fascist colors. Joe Biden was indeed inaugurated. A bunch of trolls on reddit exposed what a steaming pile the whole stock market is. And… Rush Limbaugh died.
If you don’t think it’s seemly to celebrate a death, no matter whose, you don’t get the gestalt of Rush. Rush has been cheerleading for every apex of evil that has crept into the American psyche in the past thirty-some years. Making “liberal” a dirty word? Check. Making intellect something detestable? Check. Coining “feminazi”? Check. And on, and on. The removal of this wellspring of toxicity from our national discourse might be the single best thing that has happened this year yet.
