It’s Time for Justice to Prevail

This is not a time for forgiveness and trying to repair divisiveness in our country. America’s problem isn’t with decent and good-hearted people with opposing views or with misguided citizens who have gone astray. It’s with cynical power-craving politicians and with thugs, bullies, and racists who are perfect replicas of the thugs, bullies, and racists that propelled Hitler to power almost a century ago. 

The only way to deal with this sort of collective menace is to act with unshakeable resolve to bring malefactors to justice. Michael Moore puts it well: “Every one of these terrorists must be rounded up, arrested and tried. No exceptions. No mercy. If these actions don’t have consequences, we will be living with this terrorism for years, decades.” Civil actions should be brought against them for the damage they did as well.
