“… I can’t control what people think this was. I can only tell you my intentions. This was not a rally to ridicule people of faith, or people of activism, or to look down our noses at the Heartland, or passionate argument, or to suggest that times are not difficult and that we have nothing to fear- they are, and we do. But we live now in hard times, not end times. And we can have animus and not be enemies. But, unfortunately, one of our tools in delineating the two broke. The country’s 24-hour politico-pundit-perpetual-panic-conflictinator did not cause our problems, but its existence makes solving them that much harder.

… If we amply everything, we hear nothing.”
