A "nationalist" who decries "globalists" & Soros, who champions a racist conspiracy theory, who questions the IQs of prominent black Americans, who praises "fine" people among white supremacists/anti-Semites, & who promotes fear of immigrants & Muslims. Tell the full story. https://t.co/1wMFB5H4L4

Trump and his hardcore base are making it very difficult for the Maestros of Bothsiderism to blanket the Repubs’ hate speech in a warm fuzzy cloud of pap, but give Ross Doubthat and his fellow Very Serious Opinioneers full marks for trying!
Again, for the billionth time, "globalist" is a pejorative often used to describe Jews. https://t.co/c80iq2zaZT

Ari Fleischer, once again a shonda fur die goyim:
Dude, the right accuses Soros of having collaborated with the fucking Nazis as a ten-year-old. And nobody tried to blow up David Koch with a pipe-bomb.
How about giving the false equivalence a rest at least until the Tree of Life victims are buried? We do that quickly. https://t.co/z2KZaiCiGN

I think it’s important to be excruciatingly clear about this:
Everyone is allowed to say all of these things in any context that they want. It’s true that you may be *criticized* for what you say, but that’s not the same thing. https://t.co/LH6YdQfW93

Anti-media/elite animus is arguably the ideological glue that holds together contemporary conservatism. This was true before Donald Trump, and he exploited it far more aggressively and crudely than his competitors. There's no way he's not always going to act this way. https://t.co/lm4Nk7rzox
