catching up on falcon and winter soldier, and i somehow didn’t realize kurt russell had a son who looks...just like him? it’s uncanny
also, and i’m stealing from @GriffLightning here, i wish the opening Marvel stinger were pages from comics and not stills from movies. looks better.
kind of impressed they brought the Isaiah Bradley character into the MCU

when you are argue that most attempts at voter suppression have no particular partisan impact therefore fears on both sides are overstated, you are making a category error about the basis of opposition to those laws
i’ve argued before that i think this stuff isn’t likely to work and may well backfire on the republican party. but the effects aren’t the primary story here, the intent and motivation is.
this exactly. we are under no obligation to pretend that history and context do not exist

watching ROSEWOOD for the first time since i was a kid. two thoughts: 1) i saw this movie way too young the first time. 2) john singleton is doing some really interesting things with this film besides just depicting a horrific event of violence.
it is interesting, for one, that this movie comes out as world war ii remembrance has reached a peak, with lots of stuff depicting white americans as heroic on a world historical level.
it is interesting, in the same way, that this movie comes out 10 months before AMISTAD

bad theology aside its worth saying that he can’t even get his labels right. “eschatology” relates to religious doctrines concerning the final fate of humanity. what erickson is trying to discuss is “soteriology,” the term for doctrines of salvation
probably worth saying, as well, that in the dispensationalist eschatology of American conservative evangelical christianity, God whisks away the saved/elect and subjects the rest of humanity to seven years of escalating horror culminating in near total annihilation.

always nice to see a (racialized) fantasy of extra-judicial violence out in the wild
there is no real way to extricate this fantasy of the armed white property owner standing off against thieving hordes from either america’s settler history or from the deep-seated and pervasive antebellum fear of slave revolt
it is arguably one of the ur-american fantasies, something recapitulated again and again in our media and pop culture

if a Democrat wins a GOP-controlled swing state in 2024, I think there’s a very good chance the victory isn’t certified
and i think at least one state legislature will try to unilaterally assign its electoral votes
i think people are underestimating the extent of the anti-democratic turn among republican lawmakers at the state and local level
