Witch Hunt

More RUSH … for some reason, these lyrics always seem to be applicable no matter who is in charge. Everybody seems to talk out of both sides of their mouths …

The night is black
Without a moon
The air is thick, and still

The vigilantes gather on
The lonely torchlit hill

Features distorted in the flickering light
The faces are twisted and grotesque
Silent and stern in the sweltering night
The mob move like demons possessed
Quiet in conscience, calm in their right …

Confident their ways are best

The righteous rise
With burning eyes
Of hatred and ill-will

Madmen fed on fear and lies
To beat, and burn, and kill

They say there are strangers, who threaten us
In our immigrants and infidels
They say there is strangeness, too dangerous
In our theaters and bookstore shelves
Those who know what’s best for us …

Must rise and save us from ourselves

Quick to judge
Quick to anger
Slow to understand

Ignorance and prejudice
And fear walk hand in hand

Have anyone in mind here Kevnico?....these words paint a rather clear picture of the present.

Hi Redswallow. How's it going? Some weather we're having here, huh?

No one in particular on the post. Just seems these days that everyone in politics is fitting this description ...
