Make sure you have a copy or two of Left Behind nearby for this one:
Am I implying any specific eschatological claim here? Of course not.
I do find it interesting that even a high-profile atheist academic sees the irony here though!
The 666th bill proposed in the House during this session of Congress is an "anti-racism" law proposed by Squad member Ayanna Pressley. Check out what the bill would do:
This bill establishes within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) a National Center on Antiracism and Health and a law enforcement violence prevention program.
Among other activities, the new center must declare racism a public health crisis, collect and analyze data, and administer research and grant programs to address racism and its impact on health and well-being.
Additionally, the bill specifically directs the CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, in coordination with the Department of Justice and other relevant stakeholders, to carry out the law enforcement violence prevention program by conducting research and supporting other activities pertaining to law enforcement violence and public health.
Yep, it's just a bill that would codify a witch-hunt for racism within the CDC, undoubtedly wanting to build off the totalitarian control that agency had over us under the guise of "public health" over the last year.
Such a center would be the first step toward the Department of Anti-Racism proposed by Critical Race prophet Ibram X. Kendi, which would quite literally be Orwell's "Ministry of Truth" in racial form.
