My Thoughts On Hodgkinson — Reflections From a Murky Pond
For what they're worth, here are my thoughts on the June 14, 2017 mass assassination attempt of Republican Congressmen in Alexandria, VA: In all ways, shapes, and forms this was utterly predictable as was the aftereffects and rhetoric that followed. It is and was so predictable in fact that it seems almost pointless to comment upon. Hence, the delay in my doing so. Not Just Bound To Happen, Planned To Happen That Hodgkinson, a far-left neo-Socialist who was a fanatical follower of Bernie Sanders, went "over the edge" and tried to murder a large number of Republican politicians was totally predictable in the larger context.
