Quoted @lionel_trolling

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.

Sadly accurate. Otherwise reasonable, moderate conservatives “held their noses” and supported Trump, believing it a necessary cost for the furthering of their agenda. But it is delusional to believe you can control a populist mob once you let it loose, as Carlson is now learning.

@SethMacFarlane Carlson will still have a job when this is over, and it will be forgotten. Also, what agenda do you think moderate conservatives have?

@SethMacFarlane Pretty much every horror story ever has the same moral: you cannot control monsters, whether you create them or not. How people don't get this is beyond me.

@SethMacFarlane The fact that conservativism in America has evolved from disagreements at the diner table to almost outright facism is actually kinda sad.

@SethMacFarlane Those who forget history... The lessons of the 1930's ignored. They now come home to roost.

@SethMacFarlane This is an interesting perspective from a guy who has right wing populists in his shows...

The only thing fans will boo more than disliking American holidays is spouting out actual facts.

That or their local sports teams.

Sami vs Daniel leaves Roman to fight anybody else at TLC. I vote KO. Easy quality promos and KO can take an asskicking like the Falcons. #SmackDown

@HarleyQuinnsMrJ @WWE We need a #HHH takeover ASAP! We know #NXT hasn’t been the same, but I’ll take #NXT any day over main roster garage. #HHH has a pulse an knows to create superstars. Is he perfect no, but you will see a huge difference with him in charge. Give the keys to #HHH. #Smackdown
