Exxon’s Plan for Surging Carbon Emissions Revealed in Leaked Documents

"A bright spot from a friend in Philly:
“The Proud Boys — a white supremacist group with a stupid name — planned a rally a block from my house today. The "belly of the beast" rally. Because apparently that's where I live — the belly of the antifa beast. Whatever the fuck that means.
2 hours before it was supposed to start, the park starts filling up with my neighbors. A drum line shows up. A brass band plays. The anarchists are giving away vegetables and nachos and some artists are selling jewelry. Black leaders give speeches. We chant Breonna Taylor's name. And all the other names.
No right-wing rally ever coalesces. There was never room for a critical mass to congregate. A lost-looking man or two walks to the park, doesn't see their people, turns around. A right-wing vlogger trying to debate people is surrounded and walked to the edge of the park. Someone spotted with a handgun is chased through the park, to their car, by over 100 people. The ice cream truck music plays the whole time.
The usual guys set their chess tables and start playing, the crowd of neighbors start to break up.
Nazis, we will replace you. We will displace you. We will be louder and more numerous. We anti-fascists are full of music and love and nachos. We will always replace you."
(Feel free to copy, paste, no tag.)"
