[politics] Liquid liabilities

I haven't written anything to date about the recent attacks on London because a.) so many others have already done a bang-up job and b.) well... see a.). But I must say that I'm getting sick and fucking tired of the demonization that's going on. Demonization? Of Muslims? Well, yeah - them too. But unfortunately, there's been this growing tendency among the supporters of the architects of our current debacle to lump anyone and everyone with whom they disagree into one category: those who must be eliminated. Muslims, liberals, so-called 'activist' judges, centrists who have the temerity to suggest that enough is enough, gays, abortionists, and did I mention the liberals? Oh yeah, while we're at it, we'll toss in some of them Mexicans too. Are you assholes even listening to yourselves when you spout this bile? Does that sound like something to be proud of? Liquidating your opponents, while a time-honored tradition, isn't exactly something that the US has traditionally engaged in. We've encouraged, tolerated, and promoted slavery and genocide, but to date we haven't really engaged in the sorts of politically-motivated massacres that help make European history so colorful. Is anyone else out there worried that this unwritten and unratified moratorium is about to expire?
