You may recall that MFP originally began as a racist-for-clicks website, attracting low-information “small government” audiences with such thoughtful articles as:
- Obama’s mother posed for nude photos (deleted)
- Obama unleashes riot police to beat up elderly veterans
- Are blacks really “trapped” in failing schools? (edited)
- Karma Sutra: RINO wimp Ramesh Ponnuru’s wife (edited)
This has come as a shock to conservatives-turned-Trumpworld pariahs Brad Thor and John Ziegler:
BT: My eyes have been opened! I really didn’t think that there were such deep veins of nationalism and populism on our side! I really did not think that!
JZ: As I reevaluate my conservative experience, I’m not that shocked in retrospect. Because…there aren’t that many small government…freedom-loving constitutionalists out there…so how are we winning elections…there’s something holding this together that doesn’t fully make sense…and as it turned out…some of that glue was racism!
Here’s Brad in happier (non-pariah) times…
Incidentally, THIS wasn’t racist— I stand by it.
