This dynamic repeats itself over and over: conservative elites thinking they can control and manage mobs and demagogues and then getting bit in the ass. In my opinion this is the entire story of the modern American right.
@lionel_trolling Proving there is not even a fraction of an inch for critical thinking on the far right. Sadly, similarly for the far left, I suppose. But the dangerous conspiracy theories screamed from the far right are frightening, and that's the difference.
@lionel_trolling “Hypnotic sound of sirens
Echoing through the street
The cocking of the rifles
The marching of the feet
You see your world on fire
Don't try to act surprised
We did just what you told us
Lost our faith along the way
And found ourselves believing your lies”
@lionel_trolling If by 'bit in the ass' you mean 'exactly what they want.'
@lionel_trolling Seriously… You guys do a lot of projecting.
