Pushback Notification

Joe Biden on Charlottesville and its aftermath: “The giant forward steps we have taken in recent years on civil liberties and civil rights and human rights are being met by a ferocious pushback from the oldest and darkest forces in America. Are we really surprised they rose up? Are we really surprised they lashed back? Did we really think they would be extinguished with a whimper rather than a fight?”

+ I’ve been arguing that we’re seeing a pushback against recent gains for a while, most recently in a piece called Good: Trump didn’t create this snapback. He is the product of it.
