A question that we need to ask

The discovery of the body of Bill Sparkman is most disturbing. The details of the case are still forthcoming, but what has been reported – that he was found hanging from a tree, naked, bound with duct tape and “Fed” written on his chest – makes me think of lynching. It turns my stomach.

The question that must be asked is how culpable are those spewing hatred of the government and fear of the census?

The hyperbolic ravings of the likes of Michelle Bachman are laughable. That doesn’t mean that they cannot also be dangerous. The freedom of speech does not mean that one is not also accountable for what they say.
