Last week in right-wing trolling
Here's what you may have missed from the worst people on the internet
Another week has gone by and the big names in MAGA and international illiberalism spent a couple days in Budapest, Hungary doing illiberal, anti-democratic things at CPAC Hungary. Here they are!
CPAC Hungary was a strictly pro-Trump affair. They also think he’s going to be the GOP nominee.
Keep in mind that Kari Lake is auditioning for the role of Trump’s VP pick, and she’s doing this by advocating for ending funding to Ukraine and allowing Russia to dictate their terms.
Actual fact check: Kari Lake’s attorney was sanctioned for making false statements to the court, but anyone can claim whatever they like on Twitter.
Are Trad Caths really under siege for their religious beliefs, or are they potential terror threats? Either way, don’t expect this narrative to go away.
The cult of Elon and the cult of Trump are a two overlapping circles. I would struggle to tell them apart even a little if I tried. They will continue to defend each man to the bitter end.
We joke about this, but there are real far-right commentators who do use the term “Trantifa” or “Transtifa” in case you’re wondering.
Source: trust me bro. To be clear, there is zero evidence of the Audrey Hale funeral story. It appears to have originated from this anonymous Twitter account. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of evidence that the right hates trans people and Democrats. They want to keep that discussion going any way they can.
Texas AG Ken Paxton is dipping his toe into the anti-vax discussion now too.
Say what you will about George Santos’s adviser, Vish Burra, but he’s right about this. Trump is better at posting. DeSantis supporters will eventually fall in line like it’s 2016 all over again.
By ‘officials’, he means Russian officials. Imagine taking anything the Kremlin says at face value in 2023.
MAGA is always under siege. Always. They need their followers to believe they are constantly under an existential threat which may destroy them. This keeps their people engaged, but it can also lead people down a very dark radicalization path. Thus as ever, the influencers do not stop or moderate.
In case you were wondering, no, MAGA is not considering the possibility of accepting the 2024 election results. They’re openly discussing how to nullify the results at a local or state level, as seen here with frequent collaborators Mike Flynn and Roger Stone.
As if there was ever any doubt, right?. Until next time, folks!
