Seriously, folks: this is news? We’re talking about people who think that this…
…falls within the range of ‘acceptable discourse.’ Or ‘coherency.’ And in their world, well, maybe it is. But many of these people aren’t well, and they have neither the ability nor the actual desire to get better.
And at that, it could be worse: at least most of these people are too craven to do anything that’s actually violent.
