There's a light unto the nations for you.
Ignorance and belligerent stupidity celebrated as indicators of authenticity? Check.
People you don't like demonized? Check.
Violent unbalanced rhetoric cranked up to 11 and amplified 24/7 by the right-wing noise machine? Check.
Easy access to firearms? Check.
What a shining example of democracy and civil discourse. Don't like someone's ideas? Just shoot 'em.
Someone remind me, please. We want to deep-integrate with this ... why?
