A historian reflects on how the devastating storm paved the way for the evangelical scapegoating of marginalized people today.
In just the month of June 2022 alone, far-right conservatives launched physical, legislative, and cultural attacks on American society in an attempt to forcefully remake it in the image of Christian nationalism.

Many of us screamed into the wind about the importance of voting, the cold danger of apathy, the sheer cruelty that would be unleashed, the searing reality that too late is too soon. But we can still reassemble our past and break our present—we have to.
Citizen militias at the U.S.-Mexico border rely on social media to spread lies about immigrants and validate their belief—and desire—that violent policing equates justice.
