Civil War Watch, Live Fire Edition

June 15th, 2017 by Patrick Henry

Our long national vacation from history came closer to ending yesterday morning on a baseball diamond.  An older white man with no history of mental illness asked if it were Republicans hitting the ball around out there.  Yes, he was told.  And he took out a long rifle and shot them.  They were Republican Congressmen and their aides and friends and a couple of cops pulling security.

It was early in the morning.  Cool and still.  The calm before the heat and clamor of the day.  if there were a few clouds, they may have turned rosy from the pre-dawn light.  And any Christians on the field may have looked up and briefly and idly remembered the Savior comparing morning red skies to the signs of the times.

When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring.

O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

Shooting down Republican officeholders is a sign of the times.  It is not the Ft. Sumter for a second outpouring of blood on this continent.  It is not even a precursor like his attack on Harpers’ Ferry.  But it is the Pottawatomie Massacre.
