Barricading fascists alive since walls were invented…
the xenophobic frothing from the US administration, echoed in the media, is maddening. The efforts to create an enormous wall on the US/Mexico border is ridiculously insane.
i thought satirical commentary highlighting this ridiculousness would relieve some of the massive frustration i feel.
i like poe… a lot. his works — specifically the tale of the cask of amontillado and the raven — provided a nice metaphor for my purpose.
while it would be nice to wall up all fascists & racists, ostracize & shun their beliefs and behaviors, their ideas are pervasive and deeply institutionalized.
education, exposure while dismantling of the institutions that bolsters this oppression and violence, is necessary in dispelling ignorance.
until then, we must say, Nevermore.
