    friend Allen West that he "can't remember ever" experiencing any of the things that numerous black male public figures spoke out about last week (and countless private ones have experienced), and if only all black  kids would exhibit his Eddie Haskell-ish obsequiousness, we'd have peas on earth.

    We view "The Handmaid's Tale" as cautionary. The GOP views it as an instruction book.

      As a domestic violence surmounter I will put it in that context.  As a bully targets people, those that might be next or have been targeted or are standing by hoping not to be targeted by someone like that turn on the targeted person.  For example, if a parent or spouse uses rage as a weapon often the family accepts the idea that they are provoking that rage and someone in the group must be to blame.  This keeps people from working together to support one another and demand the bullying stop.  Isolation is the key to a bully's targeting.  Wanting to distance oneself from the target makes sense in a reactionary way but actually sticking together will help end the bullying and usually is the only way to end it.
