When the President of Mediocrity Incites an Insurrection

Rebecca Solnit, writing in the Literary Hub, has one of the better truth bombs I’ve seen lately.

One of the indigestible facts of this country is that most of its terrorism and nearly all its mass shootings are committed by mostly conservative-leaning white men, conservative here meaning those most earnestly committed to their white supremacist-misogynist identity politics, from the unending terrorism of the Klan and other racist groups and the anti-abortion murders of the 1990s to the present-day mayhem.

It is all identity politics. All of it.
