The following is a quote from Heather Cox Richardson’s latest newsletter, but I read about the incident in other sources as well.
At a protest in Santa Monica yesterday before a vote on a mask mandate, a man held a sign with the names and home addresses of each Los Angeles City Council member and said protesters would go to the homes of anyone who voted for the mandate and, if it passed, “Civil War is coming! Get your guns!”
“Get your guns!”
One can’t help but wonder, along with Heather, how many are going to get caught up in this radical thinking?
Certainly Tucker Carlson at Fox News agrees. Although he was condemning the recent actions in Afghanistan, his words exemplify the thwarted thinking held by so many in today’s society:
This can’t go on … We need to change course immediately… or else the consequences will be awful.
In this instance, Tucker is correct. If these non-mask-wearing idiots carry out their intended actions, yes … “the consequences will be awful.”
Never in my lifetime (which includes a considerable amount of years) has this type of grade-school thinking been so prominent. Certainly in this country there have been multiple uprisings in all shapes and sizes and for multiple “causes,” but threatening specific individuals with weapons of death simply because a person doesn’t like a mandate — not even an actual LAW (!) — is mind-boggling.
