Quote of the Day: Minutemen in Utah


From Economist reporter Andreas Kluth, after visiting a meeting of the Minutemen in Utah:

I had expected to be slightly scared. I was not. Instead, the atmosphere was somewhere between that of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting and a geriatric home.

Better than the opposite, I suppose.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
