So in the name of keeping men out of bathrooms, men with guns are sent into bathrooms. To whom does this make the slightest sense?
This piece in Roll Call treats Donna Edwards like a fully realized person, while Chris Van Hollen is reduced to a stick figure. The substantial support he received from black leaders in MD is treated as an obvious betrayal, with not a word spent on acknowledging his accomplishments or considering that anyone might have a non-contemptible reason for supporting him. He is not allowed to be a real person; Julianne Malveaux actually referred to him as part of the "Master Plan" in a FB post. Scornful reference to "The Establishment" is treated as magically vanquishing any argument. As with Clinton vs. Sanders, those of us who care about actually getting something done are treated as part of the problem, as sellouts, by definition. I should not have to point out that, in my 36 years as a DC voter (having moved here from the MD 8th District which Van Hollen now represents), I have supported and worked productively with a great many African Americans and women.
Sen. Cruz, we are not going to have that kind of country. We are going to defeat you and your intolerant crew.
President Obama, at a Q&A in London on Saturday, answers a question from transgender student Maria Munir.
No criminal sentence ever includes being raped in prison. That is not supposed to be part of the punishment. That it is allowed to happen is unspeakable and must be changed.
Can't wait to see this.
