Hurricane Zeta. In October. This is only the second time EVER that the NOAA has had to use Greek letters, and the last time was in 2005 (most notable for Hurricane Katrina) which ended up with Zeta in *January of 2006*. We're in uncharted territory, but then again, we sure have been this whole time.

"The Alt-Right Playbook: The Ship of Theseus" by Innuendo Studios.

I phrased it the way I did in the CW because it's not just the alt-right that does this, and I share it because knowing how it works gives you a better chance of avoiding falling for it.

"What is the modern equivalent of the telephone exchange in Barcelona that was so savagely fought over during the May Days in 1937? What is the modern equivalent of the St. Petersburg rail line that the insurgent workers fought so hard over in revolutionary Russia? We have a unique problem, in that we live in a huge country.
