then the bastards shouldn't be trusted. About much of anything.
Let me give you a few bits:
...on America's culture of racism and gun violence...
...the bloodshed is a reflection of America's violent, gun-crazed culture,
but it is only our aversion to reason as a society that has allowed
violence to define the culture...
...What else could explain the hyper-patriotism that has many accepting an outlandish notion that America is far superior to the rest of the world?...
And on, and on. You've got 'America is the most violent country', etc. And this winner:
Rational public policy, including policies that allow reasonable
restraints on gun access, simply isn't possible without an informed,
engaged, and rationally thinking public.
Very short version: 'Anti-intellectualism = You people won't think and believe the way we say you should.'
