Where’s the Outrage? Bush Stragegist Asks if American ‘Apartheid’ Best Resolved Through Violence | Mediaite: "Americans who travel abroad are often afraid to discuss United States politics with foreign observers. This is not an entirely unfounded belief, but it is elevated beyond any appropriate proportion. Most American travelers overseas find the citizens of foreign nations who are well-versed in global affairs more curious about than resentful of American politics.
One theme that America’s wayfarers will find is how surprised foreign citizens are by the fact that American political fights are so vicious, that national elections are regularly disputed, that millions of disaffected citizens routinely take to the streets to protest the government, and political violence is not a feature of American life in the way it is in other nations. Well, one prominent Beltway contributor appeared to believe, perhaps even desire, to see this tradition of nonviolent political disagreement come to an end."
