The War Zone and The Sanctuary

A blog run by a Liberal Feminist woman who adores Music and all other Art in any form. Actually, she loves just about everything from Science to British comedy. But - she is pissed off with the Current Administration and all their Right Wing ideology and is compelled to fight their reign by setting up...A Blog ( ta da! ). All malice aside, this woman is most happy when she is surrounded by intelligent thought and witty conversation.

Death Threats and Mobs

Music at the moment: Seaglopur - by Sigur Ros

There are those who need to take a step back, remove themselves from the situation, and really analyze what they are doing. Mobs or large factions can be so overpowering and can almost brainwash those within it's structure. That said - has anyone noticed that the tactics that the conservative Right in this country are using are very, very similar to those the conservative faction of Islam, or in another name, those we label terrorists use? Some of these Right-wingers need to step back and...just look.

Now they are on a crusade to rid this country of all evil, and that includes our Supreme Court justices. I'm serious. Death threats to the justices that use international consultation when making rulings on certain cases. To Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Oh, the Republicians got a hell of a lot more than they bargained for when they chose to embrace and exploit the Evangelical Right. Those two factions are now entwined so tightly, and when the country does again swing towards the Left, there will be serious dissary within both groups.

Speaking of Left and Right - there is the need to divide ourselves, to fight passionately against others, that has begun to grip this country in epidemic form. It's either one side or the other. Again - the mobs that we create are more dangerous than we could have ever imagined. Because we end up tearing our very selves apart as we constantly try do the same to others.
