Survival is More Important Than Ever: Domestic Terrorism on The Rise

Today, as you all have heard by now, 88 year-old James von Brunn opened fire in the Holocaust Museum.

CNN reports the security officer "Stephen Tyrone Johns, a six-year veteran of the museum's security staff, later "died heroically in the line of duty," said Sara Bloomfield, museum directors"

The number of attacks by right-wing extremists is growing. These extremists seem to be emboldened by the horrific actions of the insane perpetrators like von Brunn and Scott Roeder and are taking their deranged fantasies to the next level.

We need to stand in solidarity not only with those who have been attacked and their families but with each other as well. We are stronger and braver than these motherfuckers.

We need to come together and demand better police protection for clinics, and enforcement of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. We need to demand answers from our representatives when law enforcement fails to protect and demand that we, as a nation, recognize that murdering doctors in their church qualifies as a terroristic activity.

Murdering guards while they are doing their job guarding a sacred and vital place is also a terroristic activity. My heart goes out to the family of Stephen Tyrone Johns and I hope this madness stops now.
