Because We Need Some Good News

The House voted 410-4 to pass legislation to designate lynching as a federal hate crime.

Look, we may be entering a new, dark age. Anti-science abounds, the theocrats are on the march, and we have an out-and-proud fascist in the White House bs’ing us all day everyday.

So every spark of hope is worth celebrating. This took too long, but it is finally here and is here by overwhelming majorities. I think even amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch will have a hard time smothering this legislation in it’s sleep.

      I’m not sure if Grand Wizard King is allowed to vote after he got stripped of all his assignments and censured. It’s one of the arguments against him in his re-election campaign (as I recall).

    You just know that Moscow Mitch will feel a need to check with the White House to make sure Trump would sign such legislation (if passed) before he would allow it to come to a vote in the Senate. It’s hard to reconcile with the notion that, yes, Trump might just veto a bill penalizing lynching.

    And the nays are:
    Independent Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.)
    Republican Rep. Thomas Massie (Ky.)
    Republican Rep. Ted Yoho (Fla.)
    Republican Rep. and Louie Gohmert (Texas)

    (secretly glad none of our Reps voted Nay – well, I guess the secret’s out now)
