This clip from CNN is well worth listening to.

It encapsulates both the jaw-dropping awfulness and bizarreness of the Orange Supremacist era, and the extent to which the mainstream media has gotten so appalled that they're dropping their usual false equivalency. I mean the old "both sides have a point," which works when both sides DO have a point, but does not when you're talking about Nazis vs. anti-Nazis or Cheetolini vs. human beings with empathy. Also, it made me laugh.

Yesterday post-rally [personal profile] hederahelix and I were discussing this.

"It's just so surreal," she said. "Hey... Is that a camel?"

I looked over. The U-haul next to us had a giant camel painted on the side.

Below the camel, as if in explanation of why a U-haul would be decorated with a giant camel, were a few lines of Wikipedia-esque notes on camels, something like "A camel is an even-toed ungulate within the genus Camelus, bearing distinctive fatty deposits known as "humps" on its back."

Yes, right? I seem to recall racists being staunchly anti-animal-sacrifice when it was POC in their apartment blocks doing it.

And it was so circular. Animal sacrifice is savage and barbaric because those people do it. How do we know those people are savage barbarians? Well, look, animal sacrifice!

And there are valid reasons to be against animal sacrifice, but if you're gonna hold that position, I want to see that at the very least you aren't eating factory meat.
