It's apparently unfair to point out the clear, direct connections between the massacre and the Great Replacement conspiracy parroted by conservatives.
Jesus, it's so hard to pick a commenting lane for this one.
a) The Whitewashing of Liz Cheney's past
b) Tucker Carlson's post-bowtie con job
c) Glenn Greenwald's spectacular fall from grace
d) "Wailing about persecution and unfairness is the right’s go-to move whenever they’re forced to actually answer for the reality of their belief system" could also apply to the Pelosi/Schumer wing of the Democratic Party
Just a boatload to unpack here.
“When a lunatic goes on a deadly rampage, maybe wait 24-48 hrs before co-opting the tragedy to malice your political enemies.” -- give us a couple days to get our stories straight
Not that Tucker Carlson cares, because it's never about logical consistency, just doubling down on racism until it's time to triple down, but the fact that he's assuming people who don't look alike or come from the same place (Europe excluded) fundamentally cannot share values gives the game away. Especially when most of those "differing values" boil down to "I do not have white skin, and I am still a human being who deserves to live and have a life".
“Social media influencer” Glenn Greenwald is so spot-on accurate. Whatever his abilities as a journalist were, he abandoned them long ago.
"Wailing about persecution and unfairness is the right’s go-to move whenever they’re forced to actually answer for the reality of their belief system..."
Indeed. Attacking first/interfering in the lives of others yet then playing the victim when beaten back is an absolutely core trait of theirs. There are no greater hypocrites or less self-aware people on the planet than the American right, and this particular tendency equates to "complaining about the refs."
It's all perfectly in line with their obviously misplaced assumption of objective morality on many issues and their lizard-brained projection of their own selfishness, insincerity, and cynicism upon others.
