But death? Assassination?
Maybe I should have level set further by saying this happened in the Atlanta metro area. Has anyone in other areas of the country had an experience
like this? Heard sentiments like this expressed?
I mean I'm angry and frustrated, but there are other ways to accomplish what needs to be accomplished? Are we becoming a nation of extremists? Or is
this just a pocket of sentiment among a few?
I believe it can be summed up by "desperate times call for desperate measures".
The perception of this president has gone from, "he's a lousy president and isn't good for this country" to "he is an abomination and is
intentionally destroying this country from the inside out and it may never recover".
Those are two totally different things. The latter being perceived as pure "evil". Most Christians or those who have a Christian identity will
only condone the killing of one man; Satan.
People take their country very seriously. Especially those who have seen depression, oppression, war, racism, social change, etc. They have
witnessed the evolution of our America therefore have a wide perspective. Somebody born in the 80's really hasn't seen the gradual degradation of
the U.S. That's not mean as a "dis" to the younger crowd, it's just a fact of life.
I didn't live during the depression but I now understand why those folks became spendthrifts and hoarded their belongings and money and lived on
meager means even though the depression was long over. Looking around at what I see today and knowing how fragile our economy and society really is,
I can fully understand the mindset.
When you are witnessing what you perceive to be the intentional destruction of the country you were born and raised in; the country you have pride in
and perhaps have fought for, it is not difficult to fathom why somebody (or many people) would want to see the perceived perpetrator dead.
DO NOT confuse this with vile political vitriol. No fair-minded individual would wish death upon any president simply because he was a poor
president. That would be reserved for "whack jobs". This is about something much more sinister and evil that a bad president.
What blows my mind is that there is still 45% of the population who don't see it.
