- “We Will Burn and Loot and Destroy”: The Weather Underground and Its Legacy, Jay Nordlinger, Law and Liberty (2021). The first part is informative, but towards the end he makes the ridiculous claim that the Right supported violence like the Left did in 2020, and that we all underestimate how much violence is on our side. No we don't. The media is Left, and biases us all towards underestimating Left violence and towards imagining Right violence. Nordlinger is Establishment, and so he doesn't like Trump and wants to smear him. Still, the first 4/5 of the article is good.
