REPUBLICAN RESPONSE TO TERRORISM
We had a California terrorist attack by two radicalized Muslims and the U.S is outraged. Even members of the Republican Congress were so concerned they stated they would pray for the families of the dead.
We had a terrorist attack at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic by a radicalized Christian. Most Democrats were outraged – the Republicans spoke against abortion providers and said we need better mental health treatment; but not even a prayer for the dead.
This is nothing new. Racism and religious intolerance has always been a part of the American makeup. Now it has pretty much congealed in the Republican Party. When we say that this is not what American values are, we are fooling ourselves.
