I am betting this is exactly right.
Trumpism's ongoing viability is dependent on the enduring quality of his "He Fights"-ness. To set themselves up for success in 2022 and 2024, the movement has to plausibly make the case that they'll never cede an inch to the left on *anything*, including the election results.
This was evident on election night and in the days that followed, when MAGALAND was indignant with the institutional elements of the GOP more with Biden and the Democrats. They wanted to see more fight from them, which translated into echoing Trump's baseless claims of fraud.
Ugh, stupid mistake

"...with the institutional elements of the GOP more *than* with Biden and the Democrats."

Sure, it’s easy to make fun of him but I’ll remind my followers that so far no one has disproved his important hypothesis that demons frequently fly commercial.
As justifications for buying private jets go, it's not the worst in the world.
I don't want to fly in a tube with demons, I don't want to watch YouTube with demons, I don't want to canvass for Tuberville with demons. I don't want any of it.

Glenn Beck cautions Dave Rubin not to be so prematurely giddy. But it’s no use: Rubin’s joy is irrepressible.
What a journey we just went on with Dave.

The LOLFEST these ppl just dropped on Biden’s lap is so powerful it might end up retroactively installing Trump as president for 50 years
As Jesus instructed: Go therefore and ROFL @ your enemies.

bruh I am dying
Look, if anything, it’s a refreshing change of pace from ordinary analysis like exit polls and down-ballot comparisons.
My guy should stick to LOTR fan fic because he just isn’t up for smart analysis. Like what is this?

A "fatal blow"? How hysterically absurd.

What's funny is the very people warning about the government's collapse are the ones perpetuating government-destabilizing myths.
It's precisely the bizarre demand for an "explanation" as to why the vote went Biden's way, along with attendant claims of electoral fraud, that is itself causing a crisis of legitimacy. The crisis will stop the moment chuds like this stop their cranklore tin-foilery.
The burden of proof is on Trump's election truthers to provide justification for their claims. So far they haven't. They're all sharing the same instantaneously debunkable hoax clips and claiming that Barr should be jailing election workers. *This* is what is causing our crisis.

If you would like to read a thread that is almost impossibly pretentious, a thread that pushes the boundaries of what you thought unearned self-importance could look like, Eric Weinstein has you covered.
"At least give us this one teeny tiny little thing. We were right about it all. We were right about everything."


The absolute nerve to be Eric Weinstein and demand that people concede this.

Just imagine offering Ben Shapiro as a tonic for culture war excess. Mate, he's its apogee.

Just imagine suggesting Tulsi Gabbard and Dan Crenshaw as examples of politicians who exist outside the reality of partisanship.
