Mmm hmm, Bobby Kennedy was in third place among the Democratic candidates for the primary when he was shot. His message couldn’t even be sold to the biggest tribe we have. He may have prevented a riot, but he was nowhere close to uniting a nation. That is a fiction people build around him.
Look, my fellow citizens of this great nation screwed me over so royally the bills for the trauma run into the multiple thousands. This essay was all sunshine and roses. Instead of all that, I think we have authoritarian tendencies that came out perfectly during the last election (and during the episode where I was ripped away from my parents like babies are being ripped away from their immigrant parents now). Most of these conservatives voted for “law and order” presidents who emphasized racism in their campaigns. P.S. Really, the tax bill is going to be good for the middle class. Are you highlighting how dumb your respondents were?
