    {{{DoReMI}}} – I’ve watched this creeping upon the US for a couple of decades now. I saw the start of it with Nixon’s “southern strategy” – hoped with every Dem election we would be able to get off this evil track but all we’ve ever been able to do is some economic damage control. How much of that is because the majority white male Congress and the up until President Obama the always white male president just didn’t recognize racism as being a systemic problem I don’t know. But I can guess. So I work on taking back Congress and hope that now the Deplorables are “loud and proud” in public that will wake up enough people to actually do something about the foundation this whole evil mess is built on. I hope. moar {{{HUGS}}}

    Thanks for this, DoReMI. It is absolutely chilling.

    Never did I think my own country would devolve this far.
