Tweets Begin Documenting the Hate and Hurt, As It Starts Pouring Forth Around the Nation

Again, not blogging — just documenting, as the hate and hurt begin pouring out around the country, in a way very reminiscent of what happened in Germany in the 1930s: these is just a handful of tweets this morning about what's happening now in various places in the U.S.

This is going to continue. And it's going to get worse. And a lot more people are going to be hurt.

And we must not ever let ourselves forget who has brought us this world of hurt: white U.S. Christians. Nor must we forget the voices of those being targeted and hurt, as they cry out in pain, while the official voices of the gurus who spin the news at our Catholic journal sites babble on about "God" and "goood news" and "love" as they begin spinning what is taking place in our country as about, oh, everything but racism, white-supremacist ethno-nationalism, misogyny, xenophobia, and homophobia . . . 

Dished up to us by the very church for which they are a mouthpiece in the powerful journalistic sector of our society.
