JFC. These people really are one step away from the KKK, aren't they? Shades of Schwerner, Chaney, and Goodman...

Republican member of the Georgia House of Representatives issued a veiled threat of lynching to a black former colleague who expressed anti-Confederate memorial sentiments on his Facebook.

At what level do these threats of bodily harm and death against public officials become criminal?

A cop? A District Attorney? A judge? A legislator? A governor?

Saunders says the crackdown is needed because online abuse can lead to the sort of extremist hate seen in Charlottesville in the United States last weekend, which left one person dead.
Writing in the Guardian, Saunders said: “Left unchallenged, even low-level offending can subsequently fuel the kind of dangerous hostility that has been plastered across our media in recent days. That is why countering it is a priority for the CPS.

Whats the Emogi for complete disbelief?
How can things get to this - these are our leaders........
Does the GOP have no Code of Conduct, or declaration of values? surely somewhere they've written down the words respect and equal or something....

But he won't be. Between the rise of what I'll call 'Trump's base'... and the spread of gerrymandered 'safe' districts... and increasing voter suppression efforts... he'll just keep getting elected.

I think this last one wrangled a reservation at a Federal lockup.. not too smart sending a bomb via the Postal Sevice.
Was he trained by the former Governor, perhaps ?

Just my 2 cents worth.
How about 'tactical survival'.
That might notch the price up even more ;)
