The biggest danger of all is complacency. Brevicks views are not
his alone. In fact, I distinctly recall seeing several postings in this very thread
that spoke to the same ideologies. Of course that would be before it was revealed who this terrorist was.
Now, I would like to believe that not all individuals that espouse such rhetoric are capable of such wanton violence and destruction. And in fact I do believe that. But hatred is hatred. As much as I would like to believe that this guy is some kind of aberration ( a "lunatic"), the fact is that this is an example of hatred. An extreme example definitely, but still it's the same kind of hatred that is uttered here and elsewhere every single day.
So while I don't especially hold high hopes of the CBC or any other media outlet in how they will present the information, it might not be such a bad idea to juxtapose this everyday, ordinary rhetoric with such a horrific outcome. To wake people up out of their complacency.
