White Noise

WaPo reports that, for many, last week’s hearings crystallized something. Not the need to hear from women who have been victims of sexual misconduct, but rather, the anger of white dudes being unfairly targeted. Male fury and fear rises in GOP in defense of Kavanaugh. “From President Trump to his namesake son to Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), the howls of outrage crystallize a strong current of grievance within a party whose leadership is almost entirely white and overwhelmingly male — and which does not make a secret of its fear that demographic shifts and cultural convulsions could jeopardize its grip on power.”

+ President Trump on Tuesday: “It’s a very scary time for young men in America, when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of.” (Wait, isn’t this this is basically Colin Kaepernick’s whole point?)
