The darkest, most primitive part of the human nervous system, oft called the reptilian brain, is rising to the forefront as reason, logic, and fact are all ignored or cast aside before fear and violent reaction. The most outrageous falsehoods, distortions, and blind prejudices are being pulled out of people's asses so fast that the mind reels. What is worse, it goes unchallenged.
As Hunter writes today:
I sure to hell hope all these news outlets are being paid off or something, because I would hate to find out, ten years from now, that they really were ignoring the circuslike butchering of democracy out of star-spangled, crap-flinging, head-in-the-ass incompetence. They had better be on the take, and not really this goddamn unwilling to do their jobs just as a matter of dimwitted, bullshit-peddling laziness.
Almighty God, you proclaim your truth in every age by many voices: Direct, in our time, we pray, those who speak where many listen and write what many read; that they may do their part in making the heart of this people wise, its mind sound, and its will righteous; to the honor of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.Dear God, have mercy upon us.
