Dear Senator McConnell:
Regarding: “I think it’s safe to say that for many, the complacency that prevailed prior to September 11th has actually returned.” Mitch McConnell Taken from the ThinkProgress article and video linked here
Once again, Senator McConnell, your guess at what THE American people are thinking or at what is actually going on in the American government is totally off base. In this case, I think the problem might be that you are thinking in Republican, fear-mongering, war-making terms that seek to protect your home grown terrorists and project every act of terrorism onto people who are not in this country.
I know it’s asking a lot for you to pay attention, but I’m hard-headed this way. Please, do pay attention. You invite us to look at your Facebook page and to read the inanity that your party puts out in the forms of fund-raising letters and editorials that are surely written either to test our sanity or to prove you’ve lost yours. I’m asking you to take a little stroll across the internet. Seriously, you won’t even need to waste tax dollars on Secret Service escorts to experience the violent rhetoric and terrorism being enacted on us by your allies every second of every day.
I promise you (in case you’ve missed the entire gun debate), many of us are not at all complacent about terrorism. We don’t want paranoid, angry, basement militias terrorizing our children and grandchildren by sporting their assault rifles at the zoo, and we don’t want people detonating bombs at the Boston Marathon on tax day, where the Sandy Hook families are being recognized, nor do we want outsiders to attack us. It's plain scary for you to say anything so stupid.
Disgusted as always,
