Shooting down act of 'calling out'

Published 22/03/2016

'Calling out' is the latest buzz phrase for demonising people you don't like. It seems to equate to being accused of witchcraft, heresy or demonic possession back in the Middle Ages.

Every time I read it, I think of six-guns at sun-up; the cowboy in the white hat calling out some no-good, backshootin', bushwhackin' skunk and giving him a bellyful of lead.
