Excuse me, America, your house is on fire: Lessons from Charlottesville on the KKK and “alt-right”
Jalane Schmidt

Fabulous piece, perfectly wrought. There is no middle ground to stand on, and your analysis of the false objectivism of ‘reasonable minds’ is completely sound. The historical framework you frame this essay with is utterly critical to keep at the forefront of our public consciousness. We cannot allow our collective horror to be defused by notions of politesse — these smug new fascists openly embrace the wrongs of our predecessors without apology. Why should their public presentations not be subject to public criticism?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
