From David Gerrold:

It's going to be a long hot summer.

Breaking up families, imprisoning children, denying them comfort, justifying it with the bible, the continuing commission of atrocities —

It will lead to violence.

And this time the police have not only been militarized, they've been infested with white supremacists — something that the FBI started warning us about two decades ago.

The fright-wingers want riots, they want violence — they want to see the military putting down the angry crowds. The fault-right believes themselves to be beleaguered victims. They voted for the orange conman because they wanted to get even with all those people they fear and hate — and so as long as the orange gaslighter keeps stirring that particular shitstorm, they'll keep cheering him. They want a civil war — because they believe they'll win it.

I'd like to believe that the asshole-in-chief is creating a monstrous backlash against himself, but no — he's using Hitler's playbook, keeping the rest of us so off-balance we are stunned in horror, unable to figure out a rational way to respond.

Perhaps it will be Mueller, perhaps it will be some judicial process in New York (or some other state) that will finally unravel the web of lies and corruption and collusion that has ensared our government. But if we do not see some serious attempt to rein in this insanity, there will be protests — and protests will create counter-protests. And in a nation that has been unable to control the spread of guns, there will likely be too many opportunities for appalling violence.

There was a moment once when one courageous man confronted a national villain and asked him, "Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you no shame?"

Such a question has already been asked of the national embarrassment. But we already know the answer.

No, he has no shame. He has no decency. He has no morality. The only question that we can ask anymore is "What is wrong with you?" And even that question is irrelevant. I don't care what's wrong with him — I just want him gone. Impeachment, resignation, 25th amendment ...

As long as he wreaks havoc with the nation, dismantling all that so many good men and women have worked so hard to build, he is the greatest threat to decency and freedom since the civil war. And because of that, the possibility of violence increases with every new outrage. The imprisonment of children is intolerable, unacceptable, and grounds for massive resistance.

I have only one question for anyone who still wants to support this monstrous evil — "What the fuck is wrong with YOU?"

Dude.
"I believe that fake news is the cancer of our times and social media the vehicles for metastasis. Institutions like the Union-Tribune and the Times are more vital than ever. They must be bastions of editorial integrity and independence if they are to protect our democracy and provide an antidote to disinformation.

We will continue our papers’ dedication to truth, integrity, journalistic independence, and storytelling that engages, informs, educates and inspires with care and compassion."
