    On Sunday I arrived in Corbett, Oregon at around 1:37 in the afternoon. I was determined to either disprove the rumors or find evidence of armed militia forming checkpoints, roadblocks, or patrolling the area. What I found instead, early in the afternoon still, was what looked like a “typical American family” pulled over to the side of the road with their emergency blinkers on.

  • Q AND LOATHING IN HOLLYWOOD

    The swelling crowd looms up and hits me psychically like a wave I couldn’t tell was too damn big.

    “CHILD LIVES MATTER!”

    “AGAIN!”

    “CHILD LIVES MATTER!

    On every corner of Hollywood and Vine, the foam from an internet swell hisses in my ears. I can’t even hear their babble for the semi-coherent conspiracy theories they’re evangelizing. It’s just the wash of the crazy tide. It’s Ten in the fucking morning and it’s over 95 degrees out. There’s hundreds of people. They’re like a single amoebic life form bubbling and grasping everything they can around it. They ritualistically all cross from their street corners into the middle of the intersection when the lights turn red and parade around with all their banners and signs and flags.

    “SAVE THE CHILDREN. DESTROY THE PREDATORS,” one sign reads. “#PIZZAGATE,” another reads.
