Bolsanaro: "I'm a fascist causing an extinction event which will make climate disaster unpreventable and end human life as we know it! Don't interfere!"

Trump: "I love this guy!"

Rudy is using 9/11 to declare war on all Americans who don't support him personally. This is all this has ever meant to him, and his.

Contrary to many of their public statements, it's clear that the Right know that climate apocalypse is coming, and that weather events will turn millions into refugees. And they do have a plan for it-a plan so horrific and genocidal they won't say it out loud. It's happening now. How we're treating refugees now could happen to all of us within the next few years.

Something we see a lot in conservative "humor" and cartoons. A "joke" or propaganda based on racist stereotypes and assumptions, but where they illustrate the POC with a white guy (or make the white guy a POC) to camouflage the racism. Shitty editorial cartoonists do this all the time.

There are examples somewhere at http://secotm.tumblr.com , though you'll have to dig for it.

The "gangster" who is colored white in the color version ... or this Neo-Nazi t-shirt commercial, where the protestors are white and the cop seems to be Latino, and the protestors are the aggressors here - a big lie as opposed to what really went down in Ferguson. Rudy G used this on 9/11 to declare war on non-cop Americans.

This is technically an example - "let's do this but with bland white dudes"

Why do the Right claim they're the only ones who can Meme?

"The alt-Right figured out that speaking to gamers or comics fans as gamers and comic fans is a way to strike a rapport and make them receptive to their agenda ... And you’re damn sure not going to reach anyone by dismissing their interests ... If you don’t speak my language I’m not going to listen to you."
