Saying migrant children were in cages under Obama

Saying the current Dem leadership is failing us

Saying centrism and "bipartisanship" are useless in the face of fascism

Isn't about false equivalence. It's about honesty and self-awareness.

We can never effectively confront the GOP's rightwing extremism if we don't look inside our own hearts, see our own failures, and try to do better.

The radicalized Republican Party is too far gone to fix, but we can overhaul the Democratic Party if we recognize its flaws.
And I'll repeat: Only under Trump, #MikePence, #StephenMiller, and the GOP has our official govt policy become child kidnapping, so no, I'm not pretending Dems and Trump are equivalent on immigration. But the moral high ground requires unflinching honesty and self-awareness.
