The atmosphere created down south is one of hatred and antipathy towards each other, where conspiracy theories are stoked by the President and his lickspittle lackeys, and where the two sides are coming to view each other as the enemy of the nation. That appears to be a view the Republican leadership is content to embrace. If you look at some of the Republican supporters on the internet as an example, these people believe everything they're fed, still believe Clinton is a criminal that somehow the largely Republican FBI refused to properly investigate, that Obama was a foreigner, a Muslim and probably a communist, and that George Soros, who also had a bomb sent to him, is a nefarious Jewish Communist conspirator trying to destroy America and all that is good and right.

I don't really know what can be done to combat this since the amount of money flowing into various bullshit propaganda outlets is so great, so secretive, and so unaccountable. Without that money there wouldn't be the number of crazy people in political office (all of them Republican) that there are now and this shit would have less weight behind it.

I'm sure that, despite the president (you know, the one who supposedly wields executive authority) constantly labeling the media as 'enemies of the state' and 'fake news', that trump supporters will find some minor political figure with little political influence who said something mean (especially if you take their words out of context) and claim some sort of false equivalence.

And we hear now that the return address on the packages was Debbie Wasseman Schultz. I guess they hoped they could blow up a DNC member at one end or the other.

There's more:

A suspicious package was sent to former Attorney General Eric Holder but it had the wrong address and was returned to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s office in Florida because that was the return label on the package, according to two law enforcement sources.

According to New York and law enforcement officials, the explosive device mailed to former CIA director and frequent Trump critic John Brennan at CNN’s New York offices—a picture of which shows the corner of a return address with the name “Schultz” visible—was a pipe bomb that “appeared to be live” and was packaged with white powder.

Maxine Waters now apparently has had one sent her way, luckily intercepted. I guess they will be checking very closely any mail sent to a Democrat for the next while.

Well just heard Trump reacting to all this goings on today and he hardly touched on it. Then he went off on some other tack about opioid crisis. I guess he doesn't give a shit really since the bombs were all sent to Dems.

I agree with you, it was quite dumb. But hey, Trump, what do you expect?

I'm kinda sitting back keeping an eye on the news and hoping I don't see the "BREAKING NEWS" headline were one of these packages has gone off somewhere.I'm sure Trump is happy though as it takes the focus away from the Saudi issue.

It'll be the best investigation, done by the best, most beautiful people.

Oh of course. It will be bigly and hopefully all wrapped up by the time I get back from my golf game. Can you put explosives inside a golf ball?

They're saying the bombs had timers on them.  How practical is it to send bombs with timer detonators on them through the mail?  :-\

Depends on what service they used, the USPS has priority mail express that provides overnight delivery.

We will look back on this fondly as the time the political violence didn't cause open and viable threats of retaliation from the other side.

Maybe this IS retaliation for the ricen attacks on top Republicans a couple of weeks ago...
