Always surprised their polling seems honest, unlike Rasmussen

It's not that I really think this will work in the end. Too much of the country is extremely opposed to it. But they will try and there will be a lot of violence. Maybe we get through this, defeat the disease, and come out healthier as a nation. Or maybe not.

Obviously this is all more complicated than a cheap historical analogy in a tweet. But this is more relevant than 1860.

The relevant historical comparison to what is happening in our nation is the imposition of Jim Crow. Except this time it's going to be on a national scale and include white liberals on a lesser scale compared to people of color. I keep thinking of the Wilmington Riot nationally.

C'mon--these Republican state legislatures will absolutely 100% do whatever Trump tells them to do. Can we stop with the fantasy thinking and get real?

Spewing bullshit to distract from the rise of fascism is their most important issue

The stupid fascist "reporter" sent me an e-mail asking for comment with questions like "do you think your conservative students are Confederates" and "Is it appropriate to retweet this" and I should have replied with a link to this:

The Daily Beacon fascists ran a "story" today on the great historian David Blight calling Republicans the new Confederates and me retweeting him. Not sure why they are offended since this is their own openly held policies and belief system.
