“We need a leader, not a tweeter!” was a very popular chant at the latest protests this week. Even I carried a sign stating, “Delete our Twitler in Chief!” It’s obvious that many of us in the opposition have a strong disdain for President Trump’s dangerous tweets. But what do his supporters think? His tweets, no matter how outrageous or inflammatory, have a purpose in persuading his fan base or potential fans. Well, not that it’s all that difficult to persuade many of his 22.9 million Twitter followers. We now know that at least a fraction of his supporters are Alt-right neo-nazis, KKK klansmen, and your run-of-the-mill white supremacists who have all found a voice in the dark corners of the internet. Just like our White House has been infiltrated by Alt-right leaders such as Steven Bannon, our Twitter has also found itself infiltrated by the likes of these people.
But who came first? Our fearless Twitler or his Nazi loving supporters? I happen to think the Nazi loving Twitter mob is feeding Twitler, and has created an insatiable monster of a Tweeter.
His tweets like the one shown above appears, at least to me, to be a deliberate tactic to undermine the power of a free press in our society. His followers cheer when Twitler tweets these type of messages validating their personal beliefs knowing fully well that many of them can’t tell the difference between a credibly sourced news article and clickbait.
If you don’t see the parallels between Trump’s ‘Murica and Nazi Germany, then you are probably living under a swastika-grafitied rock. “Seig Hail!” or as the leader of the Alt-right, Richard Spencer would say, “Victory to our People!”
