A season not ready to be merry

When Timothy McVeigh, a Catholic white  guy who was described as a  "strong Christian,"  blew up the federal building in Oklahoma City  on April 19, 1995,  the blast killed 168 people.

But there wasn't - and should not have been - an outcry to ban all  Catholic white guys from our shores.  That poisonous  notion was reserved  for another group over the years for Donald Trump's heated attacks on Muslims and now  sustained by more than 25 pct. of those identified  as Republicans.

At the same time, the panicky flock of   other GOP  candidates  who talk so fearlessly   about destroying ISIS have yet to show the rest of  us how they intend to  destroy
America's first billionaire demagogue whose rhetoric is  the equivalent of shouting fire in thousands of crowded theaters.
