I want to share this little horror screenplay I wrote over a decade ago. I wrote this when Bush was in office and there was a news story published on armed Texas citizens calling themselves ‘Patriots’ that provided ‘border security’. After seeing men dressed in fatigues, toting assault rifles and taking the law into their own hands in Charlottesville in much the same way last week, I feel like this script is still too close to reality for me.
