    have been attacked and murdered with impunity. Abortion clinics and doctors have been attacked and murdered.

    Many on the right defend to some extent those actions.

    Many recently elected GOP candidates advocate against abortion rights even for women who have been raped or are victims of incest. Some oppose abortion when the life of the mother is at risk.

    I think Taliban is exactly the correct term for the right wing in the U.S. today.

    Some of this type, in the past, opposed anti-lynching laws, and desegregation in the South.

    There is a great tradition of violence in the American right wing, going back the to KKK.

    So, Markos, more power to you and your fabulous new book!

    Skepticism of all the elite institutions, not trust, is what required for successful leadership in this era. Digby
