As always, any marginalized community joining with the far-right needs to remember that they will eventually turn on you, no matter how much you support them. You WILL eventually outlive your usefulness and they'll give you every bit of their violence and hatred that they vented on other people.

I have no sympathy for Ben Shapiro because he's been courting the white supremacist contingent all these years, knowing full well that virulent antisemitism is baked into their beliefs. Just because you both hate Arabs doesn't mean they don't also hate you, Ben. You should've learned that lesson a long time ago.

How come when I invite domestic terrorists on my network they target everyone indiscriminately and not just the very specific demographics I'd like to persecute while remaining out of the firing line????

-Whined the pathetic man child that has far too much wealth, power and influence for such a pathetic low-life personality

Make America great was always about keeping America white, straight and CHRISTIAN. Love of Israel was about some insane “the rapture will be happening in Israel” myth that I refuse to even google. I’m hoping the entire Republican Party and rightwing will just be a pile of smoldering ash in the next few years but I’ve lost a lot of faith in this country and it’s people ever doing the right thing. Anyway, let them fight on their blogs and social media and in Congress. #calexit.

Bigotry is the only reason anyone votes republican in the first place. And hatred of LGBTQ people was the only thing holding the various bigots together. The Gaza war has opened cracks in that bond. Actual Nazis were always part of the republican coalition. Except now they can't pretend otherwise. Owens will be next. Conservatism will be reduced to two guys in a basement pointing guns at each other saying the other one isn't pure enough.

These grifters have always treated "politics" like professional wrestling. If it you at it through that lens, it becomes more obvious. What's sad is the toll it will take on people they will never know and never cared about from the start.

As I simultaneously get work done from home, clean house and start cooking for Thanksgiving (we host), having finished this post after working through it paragraph by paragraph in between tasks, my immediate thought when finishing was, "Why does Alberto feel sorry for Ben?" Not one iota of sympathy from me. So what if he's having a hard time dealing? My sympathy goes to the people he knows who are being ravaged by this situation. Eff Ben and his entire ilk.

"The way his fellow far-righters piled on him would be funny if it weren’t for all their subtle and not-so-subtle antisemitism."

I mean considering the pointedly unsubtle antisemitism contained in the mirth, gloating and glee from a whole lot of people worldwide on the 7th of October when the massacres, rapes, multilations and kidnappings happened, plus the global growth in antisemitism over the past decade, a lot of people do consider antisemitism to be funny.

"The right wing mon ey isn't hitting like it did . . . "

I've never understood Candace Owens' appeal. Her proximity to white supremacy is a painfully transparent grift. She is living proof the interent was a bad idea.

Ben has been told before he is not welcome in the conservative movement. They're going to come for you Ben. Sooner or later they always do.
