There's much to this case that for fans of the far right the sheer personal vileness of ppl like Trump, Robinson, etc. is actually part of the appeal, but more could be said /1

‘White supremacy’ is really about white degeneracy | Keith Kahn-Harris theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
As the ancient indigenous wisdom of the Gael has it, "Aithníonn ciaróg ciaróg eile", one cockroach recognises another (poetic licence: a ciaróg is any beetle, a cockroach is a ciaróg dhubh). Let's call this (chin-stroking voice) The Cockroach Principle. /2 @RuthieFizz @Ciaraioch
The Cockroach Principle tells us that any given, unpleasant member of the species will feel affirmed in their own general nastiness to see someone who feels rather like them being interviewed fawningly on telly, or elected president. @Limerick1914 @soundmigration @alfgunvald /3
Now (pulls mask off, does Nagle-style reveal) I think we need to think More Deeply about this. Who is it that has made ppl feel bad about being self-centred, petty-minded, vicious, begrudging, thick and resentful? Why, the Left of course! But before them ... (historical music) /4
STORY-TELLERS! Those degenerate cultural Marxists who keep writing stories in which cockroaches appear in a bad light, never as someone to identify with. For generations ppl who just happen to be nasty little creeps have been made to feel bad about it. WHY? /5
After all, what is wrong with taking innocent pleasure in making someone else's life miserable just because they've the wrong accent or skin colour? Or men groping women? (Lobsters probably do it.) Or employers holding back wages and dodging taxes? NOTHING, that's what. /6
But the trouble is (wipes spittle from face, returns to chin-stroking voice) the constant barrage of cultural Marxism has meant that views like these Cannot Be Spoken, let alone be on mainstream media every minute of the day. Cockroaches just don't see their views represented. /7
In so many places today - esp among ppl who (makes quote signs) "try to help" others, want "a better world", "read books", or "try to change themselves" - ppl refuse to treat propositions like "immigrants are bad", "the 1950s family was ideal" or "poverty is natural" seriously /8
So of course ppl act up. Voting for racists, making women's lives miserable, supporting any wars they can, keeping the planet on the road to destruction, supporting millionaires who are "just like us" - it's really just about seeing Cockroach Culture better represented /9
Poor things, they just don't get enough attention. /10

Thankyou, this has been my application to appear on TV as a Concerned Pundit on the rise of the far right. Will share a platform with anyone.
