I am not saying it’s exactly the same thing, but you know how Radley Balko was tut-tutting the people who made snarky jokes about snowflakes instead of working to stop current abuses of power?

Again, it’s not literally the same sin of which Balko was accusing others, but it’s a kissing cousin. Instead of saying, “Wow, I’m very pleasantly surprised, I applaud this choice and let’s hope this man will work to limit the violation of civil liberties,” instead Balko uses it as an opportunity to criticize Trump’s past behavior (and I suspect, to remind everybody that “Hey guys, I can’t stand Trump’s guts.”).
