This will get overshadowed by the election, but...

Check out this story at London Calling:
A Dutch filmmaker who dared to produced a flim critical of Islamic culture has been assassinated today in Holland.
There are three possible responses to this murder and intimidation: to fight the murderers and their evil ideology at home and abroad; to ignore the fanatics and pretend that they are not engaged in an organised and effective assault on democracy; or to capitulate to their demands and criticise those who criticise them as "racists" and "warmongerers."

Europe is already well down the road of capitulation. The United States has the opportunity to take a giant step down that road today.
Ah, someone else who is insufficiently nuanced.
