The level of corruption and mendacity in the modern USA is laid bare

…in this bizarre series of events, where a Cub Scout asks a State Senator to explain remarks that she made in a 2013 radio interview, remarks that at best are negatively and dumbly stereotypical, and at worst downright racist. It seems that one or both of the State Senator or the Scout group did not appreciate the Cub Scout’s line of questioning, because he has now been expelled from the den.
This story has so many bad looks in it, from the mendacity and casual lying and bullshit of the State Senator, through to the idea that the right way to handle awkward questions from people is to simply shut them up and punish them. It is an excellent example of the underlying authoritarian culture of impunity that infects the modern USA.
