Dear Mr. VP,
As I looked down the list of the people massacred on Saturday, while they were celebrating a baby’s bris, I saw a notation that one woman was a Holocaust survivor.
Rose Mallinger survived Nazi camps only to be murdered here, in the United States – a country that lauds itself constantly for how our “greatest generation” fought fascism – by a white nationalist gunman shouting “All Jews must die.”
Something is rotting, here. It has always been here; we started in genocide, after all. White fear has ruled our country since its inception.
But to be in the highest office and stoke that fear via constantly coded racial language. Is it any surprise people are being mown down?
