Shadow President Trump, Cruz, Hawley, McCarthy, the Qanon congresswomen, etc - are the cultural reincarnations of the civil war confederates the union let off the hook 150 short years ago. We cannot afford to make the same mistakes. And the words of Frederick Douglass are ever more urgent.

Let freedom ring! Let the white bird sing! Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning! Let justice flow like rivers from the moutains to the sea! While some of us are slaves, then none of us is truly free!
