This is going to be a bloody mess

I was just talking today with Bill O and John O about the rhetoric the White House is using and how we thought there was a potential for violence. Then boom, it hits like a ton of bricks. This is not funny, this is not something we should be happy about in any way. When you demonize your opponents you dehumanize them and you make it easier to hurt them. What I am afraid of is where this violence will lead. I am afraid that a lot of people will get hurt.

This is beyond pointing fingers. Both sides need to calm down and we need soothing calm rhetoric from our leaders. Unity, respect for our differences, etc. No more stoking the partisan fires. Otherwise someone is going to get killed.

Please just stop.
