Us and Them and Tucker Stirring the Hateful Pot

What to say. Taking our times' vitriol and enmity to its logical, barbarous conclusion, a proudly white supremacist, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, "pure evil" 18-year-old drove hours to kill 10 black, mostly elderly people grocery shopping in Buffalo, N.Y. because he believed all the right-wingers - from 4chan to the GOP to a ceaselessly hate-spewing Tucker Carlson - who told him he'd be "replaced" by people of color and there's nowhere else their depraved rhetoric can lead except to racist mass murder. NRA, sick kid, extremist ghouls, malignant echo chamber. You all did this.
