Editorial: Living While American: Vote to call out terrorists

We have to take a double take at the calendar these days. Yes, we are in the 21st century, not the 20th century, when Jim Crow and hate crimes ran rampant. With the events of last week, culminating in the murders of 11 people gathered in a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, during worship time, it would seem to take America back to the 1960s, when so many deaths linked to hatred are recorded.

Back then, a president was actually killed. Thank God the former presidents who were targeted by the mailed bombs last week were not. But two black people shopping in a grocery store near Louisville, Kentucky, were killed last week. Shopping While Black can be hazardous, it seems.

They didn’t call it domestic terrorism when the Klu Klux Klan was doing it. They sort of called it that when Timothy McVeigh bombed the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995 and killed 168 people. But in the 21st century, while Donald Trump is president, it’s time to call it what it is.

But where are the federal officials – the people in Congress – calling out the domestic terrorists? Why are they hiding?

The American people can take action.

Don’t let the domestic terrorists win!
