One thing that short vote to impeach the president makes visible: the degree to which impeachment pits a diverse America of women, people of color, and immigrants trying to uphold democracy against a white, largely male past trying to use corrupt means to cling to power.

For that white male past to retain power, this impeachment makes clear, they need to abrogate the Constitution and join Trump in his fondness for authoritarianism.

So true. Night and day, the reps of both parties. More than anything, this gives me hope.

Thank you , my metaphor for the times is that we are watching cornered rabid dogs frothing at the mouth, fighting for their lives knowing the disease will kill them, unable to change the course of history.

Enough of stereotyping! There are a huge numbers of white males wanting Trump impeached. There are people of all genders and color defending him.

Yes. I’ve been a broken record on this, but it’s the truth. And they no longer see a way to maintain a significant grip on power thru free & fair elections. Our founding principles are for once not serving them, so the GOP are abandoning them.

Ew. “White male past.” Some how that doesn’t spell impeachment or above the law or impunity.
