“I never cease to be impressed at just how mean and spiteful the American populist right wing is. They always, always top themselves.
Honestly, I admire it in a perverse way. Progressives and liberals witness year after year of crushing inequality and unjust gains in the financial sector and only after decades of this do they begin protesting; Mike Huckabee says something on Facebook and every mouth-breather in the country goes and stuffs their face full of chicken. For real, it’s kind of amazing.”
