The awful people on the losing side of history — and demographics, are just getting more awful, desperate, bold and stupid. Unfortunately, they have made some inroads,especially in states with Republican legislatures where they have gerrymandered districts and sown up congress. The rest of us have to make sure they don’t take over the political/lawmaking process. We have to stay organized, united, and fight this b.s. at every turn — even when it means standing up for people who may be “different” than us, and even when it means we have to confront our own prejudices as well.
