Alex Jones’ Heartbreak: Today in Tweets

Alex Jones had a long night

By David Futrelle

In the wake of last night’s missile strikes on Syria, Trump is declaring “mission accomplished!” (Haven’t we heard this before?) Meanwhile, his fans on the far right, from literal Nazi Assad lovers to not-quite-Nazi America Firsters are crying foul. Alex Jones is literally crying.

Alex Jones seems to disagree.

Apparently it’s all the fault of the Deep State.

Meanwhile, every right-wing shithead that has spent the past several years demonizing brown-skinned refugees as terrorists is suddenly a humanitarian.

Among those feeling betrayed, Ann Coulter, who spent the day retweeting angry alt-rightists denouncing their former God Emporer Trump.  There is a slight irony here.

Coulter also retweeted this legitimately cute video, which I thought was a nice change from her usual horribleness.

Not all right-wing racists are mad at Trump, though.

There are several problems with that last tweet, not least the fact that this is not actually a picture of Damascus.

Back here in the US, Starbucks is calling the cops on black men for … going to Starbucks? And the cops are arresting them.

These days I think we can all relate to this:

“Trump is a strong and powerful leader but the deep state is in complete control of his actions”

Well, hang on now. If the OMGDEEPSTATE is in complete control of his actions, he can’t be all that strong and powerful and leaderly.

You cannot have it both ways, kids.

@Iseult:

This quote from Umberto Eco’s essay “Ur-Fascism” is evergreen:

The followers must feel humiliated by the ostentatious wealth and force of their enemies. When I was a boy [in Mussolini’s Italy] I was taught to think of Englishmen as the five-meal people. They ate more frequently than the poor but sober Italians. Jews are rich and help each other through a secret web of mutual assistance. However, the followers must be convinced that they can overwhelm the enemies. Thus, by a continuous shifting of rhetorical focus, the enemies are at the same time too strong and too weak. Fascist governments are condemned to lose wars because they are constitutionally incapable of objectively evaluating the force of the enemy.

The Starbucks thing pisses me off so badly.

I’ve been pretty much arguing with trolls all day about this.

Google “Third place Starbucks” and see why this should have never happened. It’s bullshit.

Only in right wing extremist fantasy land is the president of the United States somehow not a part of the United States government.

What would the “deep state” even be blackmailing Trump with? What else could he have possibly done that hasn’t already been reported?

Maybe trump is *gasp* part of the deep state, too?

@weirwoodtreehugger: chief manatee
And what blackmail worthy action could trump have done that his fans wouldn’t dismiss as “fake news”?

@MrsObedMarsh
Apparently not even middle earth is save from “Sharia Law”

@Tovius: it’s not even that. It’s Shakira law, which IIRC refers to a legal system headed by a Colombian pop singer/songwriter.

Still better than Trump

Now, how can ANYONE look at that Starbucks’s meme, see “Shakira law in America”, and think, “seems legit”?

That donut looks delicious, though.

Apparently “Christians for Michele Bachmann” (the hard-to-see watermark on the donut image) is a satirical group, though obviously Poe’s Law applies.

@Nequam: it definitely does, since it looks like Karey Jackson fell for the meme.

Yeah, but if you try to bite into it, there’ll be a flash of orange flame, a disembodied voice will speak dire words in a dire language, and you’ll fly back in your chair with half your teeth broken. It was baked in the ovens of a particular Starbucks franchise location, and only there can it be unmade.

I volunteer as tribute! I mean—Inshallah, I will take the Donut to Starbucks, whenever, wherever. Though, I do not know the way.

(I think I managed to fit 5 different references into 2 sentences :D)

I’m feeling an enormous nostalgia right now, for those wonderful pre-internet times. There’s so much crap out there, and this post itself is probably part of the crap. Anyone too young to remember, I wish you could have experienced those glorious days.

I imagine that’s how people felt about TV, or the telephone, or printed books, for that matter. I’m rambling, but as an example, I don’t think my grandmother ever got used to having a phone in her house. She attended to its ringing according to her personal whims. I remember my mother trying to call her…my sister and I would do shifts holding the receiver, listening to the ringing, waiting for her to finally pick up.

I wonder what she’d have thought about the internet.

Oh yippee, “Peter Sweden” is now “Peter Norway” (probably since all the guys in Sweden named Peter complained about this doofus hijacking their nationality to spread fascist flibbertigibbertarian bullshit). Unfortunately, the stoopid is still the same.

I wouldn’t be able to eat that donut, it’d go right to my hips, no lie!

I believe ‘Peter Norway’ is a nonawful person whose account name is a mockery of Peter Sweden.
