I stumbled across a local Fox channel's attempt to go after Rashida on YouTube, and the comments --

The internet equivalent of screaming and hair-pulling. Honestly, I avoid that crap but wound up there after watching a great CNN clip. The Fox clip was packaged for pure outrage, very selectively edited (they got nothin'), but the comments were where I realized how insane this is making The Base.

Their bubble is being pierced, shredded, torn to pieces. To believe in their cause now requires the equivalent of huddling in a corner of a closet. The fear, the utter rage, the open threats of violence, the absolutist religious horror --

I was of two minds about it. It's at least faintly possible that sooner or later there might be violence -- Cohen might be right about that. But it was also good to see some sunlight shining on that vampire pit. They need cleansing. They need to see what they've done.

Can't imagine what it must feel like to have a creeping realization that I might have betrayed my beloved nation to the Devil. That kind of guilt --

And that's what I saw in those comments. Realization of guilt, and the incoherent guttural scream of the Modern American Traitor.
