    I don't know how anyone can hear about designs for "Patriotic Education" and not think of the Hitler Youth, or hear about "Pro-America Curriculum" and not get chills.

    Forget the Hitler Youth; apparently the Hitler well has been poisoned as a point of reference for most of America thanks to two decades of Reducto ad Hitlerium. Twenty years of the internet has left half of America unable to process anything Nazi as a point of historical reference. And Umberto Eco's description of ur-fascism/Italian fascism is fucking incredible and 100% apropos of the moment, but probably way too academically affiliated for most of the people who need to be reached.

    But this 1776 Commission shit, I mean, this is such basic fascism crap that it's in every YA dystopia fiction novel series that's been all the rage for the past twenty-five years. I don't remember any readers of Harry Potter saying, "I think the Ministry of Magic was right to reshape the curriculum—I'm actually quite fond of what Umbridge is doing and her Inquisitorial squads, too! And thank goodness when Voldemort takes over they can finally be rid of Muggle Studies. I'm just hoping someone will report Professor Burbage to Attorney General Barr." I think people reading that were actually against it at the time. They saw that kind of thing as bad. And Potter was pretty universal in its appeal.

    Wait, was Barr actually a Death Eater? I forget.

    Despicable. JK doesn’t mention the PPE that he literally swooped in and STOLE from states that’d already paid for it.

    so Trump's tweeting, and I'm not sure which thread it generally fits in. All I know is nothing he's talking about would belong in the COVID thread...

    But naturally, he's vowing to fill the SCOTUS vacancy left by RBG "without delay."

    Then he accused the governor of Virginia of supporting the execution of babies after they're born... but don't worry, he's got a big rally he's gonna throw in Virginia, TBA soon!
