The Lamentations of Their Women


Driven before us.


The election results reflect the decision of the right wing to cultivate and exploit ignorance in the citizenry. ....

Ignorance and bloodlust have a long tradition in the United States, especially in the red states.

...a kind of hand-to-hand fight on the frontier called a "knock-down-drag-out," where any kind of gouging, biting, or maiming was considered fair.

.... progressives have consistently committed over the years is to underestimate the vitality of ignorance in America.

....they prefer to be ignorant. As a result, they are virtually unteachable.

....big capitalists, who have no morals, as we know....

They know no boundaries or rules. They are predatory and resentful, amoral, avaricious, and arrogant. state types love to cheat and intimidate, so we have to assume the worst....

We have to give them more to think about than they can handle—to always appeal to reason and common sense....

Whatever their short-term appeal, they are borne of hubris and hatred, and will destroy their purveyors in the end.

You said a mouthful, sister.
