Time to Stand Up…

To The Washington Post:

Good morning,

I could not agree more with your piece in today’s paper asking that reasonable people stand up to the far-right publicity machine. It is time to go further than stand up, we should be fighting back with some of the same. Like asking when, exactly, the Ku Klux Klan renamed itself The Tea Party? Their policies seem virtually identical, as do the intelligence and attitudes of their membership. Like asking why so many vigorously anti-gay right-wing commentators are caught with their trousers around their ankles while in the presence of other men? Surely there are limits to research?

Yes, standing up is fine, but far better to fight back.
