Hey! That was’t a sales job. (Unless you think a scarcity of Oreo flavors is a selling point.) I just think most Americans don’t have much sense of the actual pros and cons of our two countries. I know many of my favorite Americans are going to stay put for the exact reason you mention: to fight the good fight. But there are folks who are feeling genuinely scared right now (and, I fear, for good reason) so I’m not going to criticize any Muslim or trans or Mexican-American activists who think it might be a good idea to get the hell out of Dodge.
