In the wake of yesterday's disaster in Charlottesville, there's been criticism of the Alt-Right and the Red Pill Cult cutting a wide swath across the political spectrum. From Conservatives to Neocons to Liberals to Leftists, the sentiment has been more or less universal.
It's somewhat amazing that these extremists are so repugnant that they actually manage to effect rare instances of national unity just by opening their mouths. But these jugheads never learn; and every outpouring of mass indignation seems only to reinforce their Superiority Complexes.
And thus The Daily Stormer---one of the prime agitators for the Charlottesville rally---ran a headline today about yesterday's vehicular attack. It reads: "Heather Heyer; Woman Killed in Road Rage Incident was a Fat, Childless, 32 year-old Slut".
Andrew Anglin, the author of article and Daily Stormer editor, actually wonders why people consider things like this offensive. The text of the article is even worse than the headline and, as a public service, we'll simply not quote from it here.
This kind of gutter-level writing has no place in civilized political discourse. That should go without saying. But worse still, we've yet to see even one of these Alt-Right or Red Pill leaders express even the slightest remorse or shame over what happened in Charlottesville. It's no argument to say that 'Liberals do it too!' We're not Leftists and behaving like them is no credit to anyone.
The fact of the matter is that Heather Heyer was an American citizen murdered in cold blood by a thug. Several others may be permanently injured from the attack; and the Courts should give the attacker a scheduled meeting with the hangman.
Senator Ted Cruz said after the murder: "Violence, brutality, and murder have no place in a civilized society. The Nazis, KKK, a white supremacists are repulsive and evil, and all of us have a moral obligation to speak out against the lies, bigotry, and hatred that they propagate."
Can other Conservatives do any less? It's past time for Christian and Conservative leaders to support our political officials and begin denouncing these extremists.
