  •  DONUT BACKUP SQUAD (7+ / 0-)

    Just kidding but I'll hang out here with a fresh box of donuts for a while just for the chance to use one on a RW troll.  

    Great diary. The fever swamps of the right are full of people who claim law training but are absolutely ignorant of the history or the spirit of actual legal struggle for equality.

    They view the law as a magic slot machine that always comes up with three cherries for Jesus, bullets, and white male privilege.

    Ultimately the people are the law. We outnumber them and they will never be the majority again.  So now they are trying to use majoritarian strategies to defend what even they admit are now minority (old white guys) interests.

    That strategy is as bound to fail as a coastline facing a tsunami, or a little league team batting against Mariano Rivera, etc.

    They're agitated this week.  Good unemployment numbers, and bitcoin is crashing. Plus Mandela, OMG is his death reminding them of their own historical insignificance, and it's another black guy.  Steam from the ears time.  They're cute when they get enraged even more than usual.  Mark Levin is that guy who just makes up law and history, in that really strident whining voice, right? I always mixed him up with Steve Malzberg (whatever happened to him, is he in Alex Jones territory now?).  Or Michael Savage Weiner.  Every one of the is a discredit to their own grandmother.
