I haven't seen anyone claiming a miracle has occurred. But is it not fair to be just a little bit hopeful that things in the US may improve now that a much less extreme party is in charge of things?
We mustn't say nothing's changed just because things aren't perfect.
@mtorpey Mr. '94 crime bill is only "less extreme" in that he doesn't say the quiet parts out loud unlike Trump. But rainbow coalition fascism with a fucking smiley face is still fucking fascism.
@AnarchyGrandpa That seems like an overstatement.
We've got to acknowledge there's a huge difference between the outgoing and present administrations in how they'll treat people and affect people's lives.
Surely we have to see there's a difference between "making things better too slowly" and "actively making things worse".
