Another Isolated Incident, I’m Sure

Another act (h/t) that again has nothing to do with any other incident like it or the noxious political environment the GOP is pushing. Just another nut. No connective tissue. It’s all completely senseless and unpredictable.

Grand Chute police are investigating an explosive device that blew up at Planned Parenthood.

It happened about 7:40 p.m. Sunday at the Planned Parenthood office at 3800 North Gillett Street.

Authorities say a plastic water bottle filled with an accelerant caused the blast and fire, which quickly extinguished itself by the time firefighters arrived.

Fortunately nobody was hurt, and it doesn’t seem to have done much damage. Still, it could have been much worse. And I feel like a broken record here, but while of course the person who did this is responsible for their actions, the anti-choice people should recognize their contribution to this, especially the ones using violent, eliminationist rhetoric.

    especially the ones using violent, eliminationist rhetoric.

    Don’t forget the ones that are bombing clinics, ramming clinics with their cars, & shooting doctors.

    I get a sense that America is coming apart at the seams. That’s too bad. We’ve had a good thing going in this country for over 200 years now. (With the exception of some really bad years between 1861 and 1865. and a few other times.) But it’s fragile and we could lose it. And I have a definite sense that we are losing it; that not only is the American Dream slipping from our grasp, but America itself — the very essence of what and who we are — is coming undone. If that happens, and we lose everything that is great and good about our nation, I know who I’m going to blame.
