@rnv @crossingthethreshold Where you and I see “fellow citizens,” they see “enemies.” All those years that they frothed about the “culture wars,” most of us fixated on the word “culture” when we should have noticed the word “war.” We need to take them at their word and recognize that they they genuinely believe they are war with people they see as enemies.

Remember Animal Farm: “All animals are created equal — but some animals are more equal than others.” This is what underlies all voter-suppression legislation: Republicans are more equal and everyone else is less equal. And by “Republican,” I mean, of course, “White supremacist.”
