First blood

by Erin Alecto

Anyone familiar with Dave and Sara’s research at Orcinus is grimly unsurprised by the recent events in Tennessee:

The shotgun-wielding suspect in Sunday’s mass shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church was motivated by a hatred of “the liberal movement,” and he planned to shoot until police shot him, Knoxville Police Chief Sterling P. Owen IV said this morning.

Nor would they be surprised at the shooter's reading material:

Inside the house, officers found "Liberalism is a Mental Health Disorder" by radio talk show host Michael Savage, "Let Freedom Ring" by talk show host Sean Hannity, and "The O'Reilly Factor," by television talk show host Bill O'Reilly.

Eventually someone will take the rant, "Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?" seriously, and usually innocents will pay the price. I agree with dday: This Too Is Terrorism.
