Civil War III?

. . .the Left has long adopted the tactics of shouting down adversaries & engaging in street thuggery.  Not all Leftists approve of such tactics, but, as perusing almost any Leftist website demonstrates, Leftist activists cheer on these measures.  Now the Left has taken to hounding administration officials, usually women, in public places & at their homes. . .

‘I Want Vengeance,’ Said The Christian-Hater

. . .Maddux: It’s reached a point for me where I am actually Happy when someone who is Christian or Republican Suffers.  I didn’t use to be like that.  But in the age of Trump, it is what it is.  I really can no longer empathize.  I just realized that if Rod got cancer tomorrow & passed, the dominant emotion I would feel would be happiness.  Is this healthy? Probably not.  But it is what it is, in the age of Trump.  I wish you guys nothing but ill-will & when the Democrats control the levers of power again, I don’t want balance restored.  I want vengeance for all the things you guys did while in power. . .

Keeping Anti-Catholics Off-Balance

. . .[a] statement that could be regarded as misogynistic, anti-Semitic, or homophobic would haunt a speaker for years, & could conceivably destroy a public career.  Yet there is one massive exception to this rule, namely, that it is still possible to make quite remarkably hostile or vituperative public statements about one major religious tradition, namely, Catholicism, & those comments will do no harm to the speaker’s reputation. . .
