There will come a day many will wonder when the die was cast.

It wasn't 1/6.

Was it Charlottesville? Waco? Ruby Ridge?


It was George Lincoln Rockwell. Barry Goldwater. Phyllis Schlafly.

Not events, but people allowed to "politely" launder fascism after WWII.

The modern right had a history of selling lies or half-truths before, they just did it with a slight whiff of professionalism, allowing a despot to bring it to it's natural state on January 6th.
