I like to think of West Side Story, The Warriors and Escape From New York as being a trilogy.
West Side Story sets the stage of sorta wacky hyper-stylish street gangs fighting over turf, with police only serving to maintain a white status quo. The Warriors depicts attempt at a multiracial coalition-build of said gangs. Escape From New York depicts the right-wing backlash.
Logging off before I loop Newsies into this.

The worst thing I've ever seen. At least if you burn to death on a century-old subway you have someone to talk to, and your family isn't out a $30,000 vehicle.

Hawley's core demographic will be misogynist gamers and his core campaign tactic will be to neg them.
