The horrific Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that left 11 people dead last week was, for good reason, called “the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history.” It was a ghastly crime of appalling proportions. Robert Bowers is charged with 11 counts of using a firearm to commit murder and multiple counts of hate crimes. If he is convicted, as he most assuredly will be, then the death penalty would, and should, be fully justified.
Ever more so than before, words of our leaders, our media, political opponents and our own words matter.
So, when I witness the country seeming to come apart, I look to words of those who want radical change.
One of those individuals is people such as David Duke.
Wait, don’t say it. I think I know what you’re thinking.
