Manufacturers of Rage are the Witch Hunters of the 21st Century

Reuters reports that

 "Republican U.S. Representative Paul Ryan on Friday agreed to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus after members of the group branded his remarks about inner-city poverty this week "highly offensive". The controversy began on Wednesday after Ryan said on William Bennett's talk radio show, "Morning in America," that there was a "tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value of work." Representative Barbara Lee of California, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, called Ryan's remarks a "thinly veiled racial attack." "Let's be clear, when Mr. Ryan says 'inner city,' when he says, 'culture,' these are simply code words for what he really means: 'black'," Lee said in a statement."

 WHEN is this madness going to stop? If anyone said something intentionally offensive it was Rep Barbara Lee for hearing what Ryan said and then deciding what he said meant something else. 

Manufacturing this rage is getting just stupid. Its making people have to go on these idiotic "apology tours" which do nothing but make the person a subservient slave to whomever or whatever organization they have to apologize to. And there's always plenty of news agencies, like the Huffington Post, who love to help stimulate the manufacturing of the rage. 

It's seems to be, so far, the 21st century witch hunt and the hunters are burning and attempting to burn witches all over the world, but especially here in the USA. 

Personally, I have no interest in pursuing witches. I have more interest in going after witch hunters.  (SOURCE: Huffington Post: "Paul Ryan To Meet With Congressional Black Caucus After 'Inarticulate' Poverty Remarks ")
