I’ve been commenting here for some time now about the price we can all expect to pay for the hatred, bigotry, and racism that the GOP has pandered to in this interminable and ugly campaign. This weekend, we begin to see the “strange fruit” harvested from these abhorrent seeds.
Authorities in Oak Creek, WI belief that a ‘White Supremacist’ is behind ‘Domestic Terrorism’ that killed seven, including the shooter.
Last night, a Mosque was destroyed by arson, the second blaze this summer.
The GOP has cynically and shamelessly pandered to these vile prejudices, over and over. The mainstream media has been shamefully silent about this blatant hate.
Now we begin to see what happens when these dark spirits are summoned in our society.
Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.
I fear the worst is yet to come.
