The ascension of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is a terrible thing for the country but it is clarifying. America is in the midst of a legitimacy crisis. The Republican Party has gone all in on white nationalism (in addition to ensuring the rich pay nothing in taxes and American is continually engaged in war. The three planks of the Republican Party). Yearnings for the days of yesteryear when Tip and The Gipper could work out their differences over golf and scotch (which was never the case) are worse than useless. The left needs to strongly and unapologetically advocate for what it stands for. A much better world is possible and the forces of reaction must know what they are up against.
