When I was in the military, our gunnery sergeant had advice for us. It was "If you don't like your toes getting stepped on...move your feet."
Sounds like good advice, right? If you find yourself having to defend bad behavior by yourself or others, maybe you should stop behaving badly or supporting those who do. However, that is rarely how that plays out. Usually, those who willingly CHOOSE to act badly or support that behavior instead attack the messenger, because they both want to justify themselves or continue doing it.
"Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed." John 3:19-20
So, instead of Trump and the GOP greeting news that Russia gave the election to Trump for political favors as the threat to national security that it is.. They demand the justice department stop investigation and fire them when they refuse...and call all news media reports of it "fake" to maintain the darkness. Similarly, the religious right condems all news or media that ask how cutting poverty aid or supporting adulterers for President or Pedophiles for Senate can be "Christian" to keep doing it.
Instead, we need to pump up the flood lights to drive6 the roaches back to their cult communities and keep the rest of the country alert and safe from their terrorism of those not like them.
