Relief

I am relieved that the perpetrator of the Norway attacks turned out to be a right-wing Christian fundamentalist.

If he had been a Muslim -- even one not connected to any particular terrorist group -- the shrieking, hand-wringing and dire warnings here in the U.S. media would have been unbearable. They'll be coming for our children next! Pantywaist liberal "tolerance" doesn't work when you're dealing with savages! Look where it got Norway! Political correctness will kill us all! THIS IS A WAKEUP CALL!!

But because he was a right-wing, Christian fundamentalist, anti-immigration gun lover who espoused views that happen to be popular with many right-wing groups in the U.S., this man will be dismissed as nothing but a lone wolf lunatic who was not influenced, inspired or incited by anyone or anything. Then this horrific story will quietly fade away, hopefully before someone at Fox News gets their tender feelings hurt and starts bewailing the proliferation of "liberal intolerance" and "left-wing hate speech."

Yes, I am relieved.

Braved the heat to do some grocery shopping and suck down an iced latte and on my way home I saw this bumper sticker on a car: three stick figures. Two standing upright facing each other. The one in between them: female (stick-figure boobs), prone, face down, taking it up the ass and in the mouth.

Stood there and stared.

Walked away.

Three blocks later I had my "spirit of the staircase" moment when I realized I had a red Sharpie marker in my bag.

Options:
1. Deface bumper sticker entirely so that it was not visible?
2. Write "I hate women" on bumper sticker?
3. Write "Mom" on bumper sticker and draw arrow to the woman figure?

Already sweating like a pig, I wondered if it was worth doubling back in the heat to do something that a) would go right over the head of the asshole who owned that car and b) might get me a bust in the mouth if the owner of that car happened to come around while I was doing it.

Still grinding my teeth over this.
