Tim Wise reminds the denizens of the Far Right of the handwriting on the wall. An excerpt:
"I know, you think you've taken "your country back" with this election — and of course you have always thought it was yours for the taking, cuz that's what we white folks are bred to believe, that it's ours, and how dare anyone else say otherwise — but you are wrong.
"You have won a small battle in a larger war the meaning of which you do not remotely understand.
"'Cuz there is nothing even slightly original about you.
"There have always been those who wanted to take the country back.
There were those who, in past years, wanted to take the country back to a time of enslavement and indentured servitude.
"But they lost.
"There were those who wanted to take us back to a time when children could be made to work in mines and factories, when workers had no legal rights to speak of, when the skies in every major city were heavy with industrial soot that would gather on sidewalks and windowsills like volcanic ash.
But they lost."
