Part of a social commentary about small Midwestern cities and towns. In this case, Lester, Iowa after a church shooting. The commentary on said city continued by saying that the city government of Lester, IA came up with a weird fusion of all of the above. A funeral was held, and tourism was invested on, but it came from notorious right-wing resources."So you're a small town of 290 in Iowa suffering from two things: economic malaise and a recent shooting that has killed five and hurt at least eighteen motivated by right-wing nutcases. Do you:
A: Hold a funeral before investing in infrastructure and police ensuring this couldn't happen again?
B: Invest in tourism?
C: Appeal to neo-nazis, klansmen, and any other right-wing twit to get their money from them coming into town and pretty much worshipping the perps who killed those five people, turning your town into a Nazi Mecca?"
Part of an exchange in Ring of Fire, a horror film about portals to hell suddenly manifesting across the world."Mr. President, I'm afraid that the news reports are correct. There is... what can only be called a portal to hell where Washington D.C. used to be. And... something is coming through."
"Do those idiots have any idea why we couldn't expand into California like we wanted?"
"But we did."
"We're limited by the Mokelumne River. We got literally nothing other than the Texan claims, plus the territories north of the 38th parallel. Useless land, I say! Useless!"
