The Political Right Is Losing It
I have had Fox News Radio on this morning, I consider it an anthropological and sociological expedition into the netherlands of our nationhood.
Right wing talk radio is probably the best indicator of what the MAGA people (formerly known as Joe Six Pack or Plumber Joe) have on their minds. The hosts always know how to bring it out of the callers too.
What is on the mind of our MAGA's ?
They are outraged, outraged I say, at Megan Rapinoe, the US Women's soccer star, because the young lady dared to "talk back" to President* Trump, and also failed to put her hand over her heart during the playing of the national anthem before some of the games.
"Get the hell out of my country" the callers bellow at the mention of Rapinoe's name. The callers also want the whole team to leave the country, including the coaches and team authorities , who the callers say failed to discipline Rapinoe by kicking her off the team the first time she didnt put her hand over her heart.
"Conservatism" in present day America is devolving into constant crybabying about what big crybabies they think liberals are. We see everyday on forums like this one. "Those social justice warriors are being mean to me". Bad AOC. Bad college professor. Bad female soccer player. Bad tranny. Yikes.
I read this morning that a strip club is going to have a golf tournament at one of Trump's golf courses, the Doral, which is in Miami. In the advertisement for the event it says that you can select one of the strippers to be your "caddy" and she will spend the day driving your golf cart for you. If I remember correctly I think the story said that these caddies will be wearing short pink miniskirts on the golf course, and then when the golf is over everyone will head back to the strip club for some entertainment.
This certainly sounds like something that might draw at least a slight bit of disapproval from Trump's evangelical base. But of course it won't. The evangelicals are too busy calling talk radio and complaining about the US national soccer team that just won the world championship.
The right is all about outrage, either against "socialism" (almost non existent in America) or in support of white grievance. White people are being so abused by liberals, you know. All these wackos in the "Democrat" party (they cant bring themselves to say Democratic) want to destroy America by making it diverse. America is a white nation god dammit.
I expect to be hearing on talk radio soon that Megan Rapinoe is a Muslim and is a blood relative of Ilhan Omar.
