What And Who Are Killing America? | By Louie Overstreet

Destructive behavior, actions, and events are being visited upon America in such quantities that the following statement is not hyperbole: American democracy is viewed by ignorant and arrogant people as an aging parent that is now a burden and should be subjected to senicide.

The Republican Party is no longer the party of Abe Lincoln, but has become the Party of Lincoln Rockwell.

The What trio of fear, division, and bigotry are running rampant. The Who ain’t the legendary rock group, but rather the triplets of the Supreme Court, science-deniers, and gun zealots.

The superrich are taking total advantage of too many working-class white folks’ fear of “losing their country to those people.” This leads to a divided nation that is no longer capable of presenting a strong front to the rest of the world on issues that are vital to our national interests. Bigotry in the form of racism, sexism, homophobia, and xenophobia serves as the wedge.

The 2013 SCOTUS decision to gut the Voting Rights of 1965 provided the basis for a spate of voter suppression laws at the state level. Even more diabolical are new measures designed to sabotage the entire voting process. America is only one or two more bad Supreme Court decisions from coming apart at the seams; overturning Roe V. Wade would be one.

Choosing what science to deny is literally killing us due to our collective inability to solve the problems now facing America. When tens of millions of citizens are stupid enough to prefer being dead-wrong to alive-right — based on party affiliation or political ideology — when it comes to lifesaving vaccinations, then the denial of science needs to be added to the list of what is killing America.

Also, do not get me started on what type of value system a gun-nut zealot must have to accept seeing school children slaughtered, rather than support reasonable gun control laws?

Since you now know the what and who, I decided to also share the “how” America is being “kilt to death!”
