“How can Joe Biden call America First conservatives a threat to democracy…”

As foretold by the prophecy.

While nobody knows who came up with the exact words “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross,” it’s been going around for decades, and the sentiment is older still.

It occurs to me that in some sense Lauren Boebert is a comedy routine that falls flat…ridiculous but not the least bit enjoyable. We so desperately need to get rid of the mandatory audience participation.
