“They’ll watch while millions die from the pandemic and they’ll chalk it up to God’s will. And they’ve been preparing for this moment for a long time.” @JYSexton  on the white-identity Confederate Christians who embrace Trump as a messianic figure:

Rhode Island is the site of the latest skirmish in decades of free speech struggles between Americans and DMVs across the country, which have included battles over “QUEER” vanity plates and Sons of Confederate Veterans specialty plates.
