Excerpted from “The Wolves Among Us” by Burning Bright

“So, as we observe an almost comically large-scale turn by some of the most influential public figures—mostly commentators—who wear the public mantle of America First or MAGA but sow more division than our would-be adversaries, attempting to cast Trump as a bombastic, harmful figure from a bygone era that must be abandoned, I would only ask that you commit their names and their faces and their current dispositions to your memory, so that you might recognize the barbarians the next time they are at the gate, or the wolves the next time they are among the flock.

And remember that, should the wolves be revealed, while they may seem threatening at first—even powerful—they will be reduced to desert foxes in the presence of lions, and jackals in the presence of tigers.”
