Open thread—#MAGABomber caught!

Of course, as I was driving into work, news broke that the attempted assassin who has been mailing bombs to Donald Trump’s favorite targets was caught in Florida. The close up of his van on the graphic to this piece should put paid to any conspiracy theories that this was a left-wing false flag, or a Russian operation. He was a red-blooded American domestic terrorist.

We’ll know more in coming days, but it’s evident that this person was inspired by Trump’s eliminationist rhetoric towards his “enemies”. We should be thankful that he was an incompetent bomb maker, or the country would be in mourning right now and on the brink of massive violence.

There’s nothing for it: the Republican Party has to be excised root and branch. It has inspired this violence. This is not tenable in a free society.

This is your open thread.
