Nothing said this week was better than Joe Biden in Buffalo. "Jill and I bring you this message from deep in our nation's soul. In America, evil will not win. I promise you. Hate will not prevail and white supremacy will not have the last word." He condemned the racism, violence and hate spread through the media, the internet and politics. Then he went further, to denounce all that goes into "the lie," big and small. "I call on all Americans to reject the lie, and I condemn those who spread the lie for power, political gain and for profit." He finished: "We have to refuse to live in a country where fear and lies are packaged for power and for profit. This is work that requires all of us. We can do this if we resolve to do it. If we take on the haters. And those who don't even care, it's just about profit and politics. May the souls of the fallen rest in peace and rise in glory. And may God guide the United States of America.". –Fletcher Farrar, editor
