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.
