How many of you remember the days when the Angry Left was passed off as salutary by the Kultursmog? Today we do not hear much about it. It went the way of the Occupy Wall Street movement and the other Occupy movements. Now, in the smog anger is a bad thing, and it is associated with white males. It even has Republicans uneasy. Just a couple of weeks ago, the chairman of the Ohio Republican Party at a national meeting of other Republican eminences spoke for them all when he said, "We need to understand that we can't come off as a bunch of angry white men." Of course, he was using a term shaped by his enemies. Some Republicans are not very smart.

Now that we have the Brothers &?!$ on the scene, the term Angry White Male is going to be handled very gingerly by the Kultursmog. The brothers certainly have exhibited anger. In addition, they have resorted to gun violence as well as violence with explosives, and they are white. At MIT they apparently indulged in carjacking, and if reports are true, it was a car made laughable with that idiotic Coexist bumper sticker on its rear bumper. Yet they are Muslims, people of faith. What does this mean? How will this be factored into the Kultursmog's judgment?

Again, no one knows for sure. We shall just have to wait until the smog forms around the case of the Brothers &?!$. When you are dealing with political culture that comes up with unproven statements from an ipse dixit source, anything is possible.
