As most of you know, journalist Kurt Eichenald -- who has broken so many important stories about Trump -- was a the target of a cruel internet assault in which he was sent an attachment designed to trigger his epilepsy.
You may be interested in these items from Eichenwald's Twitter feed:
Look at how many Trump followers seem to think its funny or deserved that someone used my disability as a weapon. Whats wrong with them?
How have so many ppl become such sociopaths that they think its ok to assault someone if they write political stories they don't like?
Folks, if a blind man says things you don't like politically, it is not okay to direct him toward the edge of a cliff. Find some humanity.
A request: Would self-identified Christians please stop telling me they wish I had died from my seizure last week?
This is one of the self-proclaimed Christians who believes that making fun of my disability is appropriate. @DonnaLeaPurcell
That tweet evinced the following response from an asshole who hides under the name Gallant Gallstone:
@kurteichenwald don't forget us self-proclaimed Odinists... we also mock you, your disabilities, and your non-existent police reports.
Although Eichenwald did in fact, file a police report, asshole Republicans keep insisting that he did not. This Donna Lea Purcell person seems to have deleted the offending tweet -- and I must admit: She deserves congratulations for having the courage to operate under her real name. Still, she's a piece of work
This country cannot survive half-sociopath and half-sane. The feverish bullying of the Trumpian conservatives -- their thuggery, their might-makes-right mob madness -- inevitably reminds us of the brownshirts in their beer halls. This sick behavior bears no relationship to the teachings of Jesus.
What I fear most about the sociopaths is that they may force the civilized to act as they act. We've tried
going high when they go low; it didn't work. The appalling thing about fascism is that you've got to use fascist methods to get rid of it.
