From today’s TFN News Clips:
“This is who they are — the proud and ignorant. If you believe that if we still had segregation we wouldn’t ‘have had all these problems,’ this is the movement for you. If you believe that your president is a Muslim sleeper agent, this is the movement for you. If you honor a flag raised explicitly to destroy this country then this is the movement for you. If you flirt with secession, even now, then this movement is for you. If you are a ‘Real American’ with no demonstrable interest in ‘Real America’ then, by God, this movement of alchemists and creationists, of anti-science and hair tonic, is for you.”
— The Atlantic writer Ta-Nehisi Coates, commenting on the explosion of far-right nuttiness and extremism in America today.
