But lets be fair here. The big, direct anti Trump march was the woman’s march on the heels of the presidential election. That was a monstrous response.

On the other hand, the American Civil War really never ended. It was transfer from the battlefield to attacking America’s better angels all over our nation. This is the old Confederacy’s cause for promoting xenophobia everywhere. Somewhere around 35 percent of the nation still march in this dystopian army of hate. Fortunately theses bitter notions are carry on by old folks headed for the graveyard, just the place where such notions belong.
