I don't know what to think anymore about the reaction to these latest "attacks" in New York/NJ and Minnesota. CNN is running large font, all caps headlines like "MANHUNT" and now "CAPTURED" on its front page. There is the lovely fascistic style of referring to these as "attacks on American soil" and the "Homeland," since the jingoism in the current political campaign is inadequate, I guess. If only there were more security and spying and profiling and less political correctness and "fighting with one hand tied behind our back" all this would stop. Right.
And of course Trump is playing right out of the demagogue handbook, again acting as ISIS's unofficial head recruiter (and American Muslim alienator-in-chief), while also making not-so-vague allusions to violence against Hillary Clinton. But he's got a secret plan to eliminate ISIS, only to be revealed if we elect him - otherwise he'll just keep it secret. If only he could get the "carrying a cross" part down we'd have quite something on our hands. He's got 50 days and is tied in the polls, give him time.
Vote Hillary, it's important.
UPDATE: Ah, that's more like it, thanks DC!
