Here is a happy family enjoying play in the snow in 1940. Hard to imagine their idyls getting disrupted by protesters, and they never would have. #civility 1/
The father in the photo is Karl Otto Koch, shown here in uniform, commandant of the Buchenwald concentration camp. When the previous photo was taken, at his comfortable home outside Buchenwald, the Nazis had stifled all dissent. #civility 2/
The luxury of arguing about #civility belongs to the privileged classes, not those at risk. We will never know if the Karl Otto Kochs could have been stopped before they got this comfortable, because "civility" at the time prevented making them uncomfortable first. fin/

Here is my thread of optimism for #TheStateOfTheResistance – it is easy to let the events get us down, but: We. Are. Mighty. #StrongerTogether. #BlueWave2018 #BluNami #BlueTsunami2018 1/
Reason 1 for optimism: We are all worried about Trump firing Mueller after, perhaps, he first fires Rosenstein. First, he is getting advised NOT to fire Rosenstein. By his own WH, & by many congressional GOP.… 2/
