From Max’s Dad:
This has all happened before. The white rage, the white fright, the white embracing of a demagogue who means none of what he spews. George Wallace was Donald Trump back in 1968. Capitalizing on the civil rights gains, the baby boomers getting all freedom-ee and listening to that hippie music and smoking that stuff and Afros, Wallace, the Guv-nah of Alabama who had famously stood in the schoolhouse door to keep the blacks out for an extra 5 minutes or so, was on a roll.
