Now comes Matthew Cochran, explaining what we’ve been trying to say for decades, and doing a much better job of it than we ever have:

The detail that conservatives tend to forget is that when one party violates a contract, the other party is no longer bound by all of its terms. If you sign a contract to buy a car, and the dealer refuses to turn it over you, you aren’t “sinking to their level” by refusing to hand over your money. If you contract an employee who never shows up for work, you aren’t “repaying evil for evil” by withholding his wages. The same is true when dealing with people who are deliberately uncivil to civil people — it fundamentally changes what the rest of society owes them.

There is more, much more, and you really do owe it to yourselves to read it. It covers pretty much everything.

dasbow @ #: If it had been a Republican shooting up the Democrats, it would have been far more competently done with significant casualties. Conservatives understand the benefits of zeroing in your rifle scope and dealing with the unmarked security when they unmask. Of course, that is not the first thing we do. We prefer going through all lawful means.… Read more »

I have seen that Tiki torch march, and there are SOME spells where they are saying “YOU”, and some where it sounds like “JEWS”.
But for all I can tell, either clip could have had the sound altered.
