Those of us who grew to adulthood in a atmosphere of derision toward others know a terrible truth we hope will never be known by our great-grandchildren.

We know what it is to accept without question the prejudices of a deeply bigoted society.

It is especially tragic when someone who accepts danger in order to protect the rest of us, a law enforcement officer, is killed.

How must we react when that death is used to attack an ethnic group?

Traditional logic does not explain the elements of childhood insularity, willful ignorance, and ethnocentric hatred.

When Conservatives attacked President Obama as "arrogant," that word held a very special, very specific meaning.

President Trump has pardoned Joe Arpaio. Good folks are angry.

They have a good case. Why aren't they making it?

He had been forced to betray his most loyal followers and his own deepest beliefs.

Then the fury erupted and rage spoke in his place.

Leaders of countries once at war now spoke of peace.

The message of hatred replaced by partnership, of conflict yielding to compassion, seemed innocent, uncontroversial.

Then guilty minds became angry at imagined insult.

The first harm from the new President will not come through law or policy.

It will be felt on American streets.

The immigrant was ambushed and killed walking home from work.

So why hold an anti-immigrant rally a few doors down on the same street?

The famous creationist visited me many years ago.

Today's Trump supporters remind me of the man's favorite argument.

Mr Trump tells evangelical Christians he is a self-made man.


He invites them to a new form of worship, that many are discovering they have been yearning after for a very long time.

The cynical among us may regard the sudden surge of Republican office holders away from Donald Trump as rats deserting the ship.

There is an alternate view.

The father of a fallen soldier asks whether Donald Trump has even read the Constitution.
Mr. Trump attacks. The man has no right to ask such a question.

Actually, the Constitution guarantees that right.
It also gives Mr. Trump the right to attack two grieving parents.

And it gives the rest of us the right to call Mr. Trump a godawful jerk.
He should read about those rights.

Hey Pocahontas!
You gonna grab your bow and arrow there?
You got a big mouth, lady.
She’s got a big mouth, and that’s about it.

Our parents taught, and popular culture reinforced, how we see those who snarl such things at women and ethnic minorities.

The base is on a journey far down into the blood soaked logic of religious and ethnic division stains too much of human history.

We know they would kill us. We know this because we would kill them. That is why we must get rid of them first.

Mike Huckabee is right that the Dred Scott decision was a moral and legal monstrosity. He is only wrong about Gay Rights, American history, the law, the courts, and every President since Thomas Jefferson.

Satire can be a mighty weapon when humor is used to puncture the pretensions of the privileged, the pretentions of the elite.

When it directed at the downtrodden, those who struggle to overcome hardship, satire mutates to something less noble. It becomes simple meanness, petty and cruel.

Free speech includes freedom of malevolence. We can and we must defend the rights of those who bully and hate.

That full and vigorous defense does not obligate us to join them in their hatred.

The political whispering campaign resembled the one from 80 years before. 

Both resulted in death.

Both came from the same cynicism.

Both happened in the same environment of casual bigotry.
