Thanks again, NRA & Right-wing Radio

Two weeks ago Dr. Tiller was murdered for his belief that women deserved medically-necessary abortions.

Today an 89-year-old white supremacist shot and killed a security guard at the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC.

This guy was a real loony. He served 6 1/2 years in prison in the 1980s for threatening to blow up the Federal Reserve Board HQ in DC.

Hmm. Guess that Homeland Security report about right-wing extremists a month or so ago was accurate after all, despite the howling from their sympathizers that their colleagues were being victimized and hounded by the authorities.

I have no words.

I'm just sad for the family of the guard. And all the families who were there to peacefully see the museum. These sorts of deaths are so incredibly senseless.

Senseless to the sane world, Batty, but perfectly sensible to this guy and his fellow travellers.

A weird quote from one of them:

"The responsible white separatist community condemns this," he said.

"Responsible" as a modifier for "white separatist community" is not something I've ever seen before.

Yeah, that's a bizarre qualifier.
