Gasp! Racist Lion’s Heads and All That! By Charles Taylor

     Look, as traitorous and disappointing as Trump is, surely we Americans must vote for him again since what a delight it is to see how the liberal progressives just go crazy over everything he does, or does not do:

“President Donald Trump promoted a new video Wednesday that featured some of his favorite hits. Job creation, stock market growth, low unemployment rates, regulatory rollbacks, high approval rating among Republicans — all pretty obvious content. Trump himself posted the video on Twitter, with the comment “Thank you for your support as we MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” But toward the end of the video, the video uses a symbol of a lion’s head, which, as writer Dustin Giebel and former Snopes managing editor Brooke Binkowski first noted on Twitter, was also used by the far-right publication VDARE. VDARE, which describes itself as “America’s Immigration Voice,” was founded by white nationalist Peter Brimelow and has regularly published the work of prominent far-right extremists, including Jared Taylor, a well-known figure in white nationalism for decades. Jason Kessler, who organized the deadly 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was also a contributor.”

     Yes, and vDare also uses numbers on its site too. Will the bow be drawn long enough to encompass absolutely everything that Thump does to get the good old knee jerk reaction going? Or, will Rump voters not give a jot about elites having heart palpitations about symbols in tea cups? Maybe if Thrump did something, they would have more to worry about.
