    “What if someone else advocated the same thing about Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders?”

    Gee, I didn’t realize those two had been advocating racially-tinged violence from their supporters.

    You spent the last couple of weeks bemoaning today’s lack of angry guitar rock, and now a righteously angry hip-hop song has you clutching your pearls? Come on!

      So it’s socially and morally acceptable to respond with a call to KILL a man? That’s “righteous” anger? So two wrongs make a right? A couple of points. (1) Political dialogue has sunk to an all-time low in the US; (2) I’m trying to imagine what the media/public reaction might be if a bunch of hardcore country guys released a song advocating harm against either Clinton or Sanders.
