On July 8, 2021
Yamhill County, Oregon doesn’t really seem like it would be a center of right-wing rage. The edge of the county is only 12 miles from Portland. It has a nice liberal arts school in McMinnville–Linfield University. There are lots of wineries. But oh boy is it a center of right-wing rage. Sure, it’s a rural […]
