For your convenience, a small collection of awful tweets from some of the delightful individuals who have appeared in the virtual pages of We Hunted the Mammoth over the years, and a few who haven’t. You will be happy to learn that I have included no tweets dealing with the Mueller report in any way. [EDIT: Ok, I lied about the Mueller thing.]
Let’s start with our old friend Roosh V, continuing his pivot from traditional pickup artist misogyny to far-right crackpottery. Like our incel friend from yesterday, he is exercised by women with tattoos, and thinks that they should probably be exorcised.
Here’s racist YouTube “philosopher” Stefan Molyneux, who some people incredibly still see as some sort of intellectual, with the deepest of Deep Thoughts.
Truly a galaxy brain insight right there.
Oops, wrong gif. I meant:
Here’s (allegedly) Dapper Nazi Richard Spencer working himself into a pure white froth over the Notre Dame fire, and managing to spell the name of the cathedral wrong in the process.
Here’s white nationalist and women’s-suffrage-opponent RAMZPAUL with a somewhat, well, puzzling take on antisemitism:
Right-wing weirdo and Townhall columnist Kurt Schlichter started off the week with some truly weird and possibly extremely drunken tweets, but he seems to have deleted them, alas. But this Extremely Serious and Sober tweet of his is nearly as strange.
Aging actor James Woods, who is turning out to be as creepy and assholish as many of the characters he’s played, apparently thinks that Ilhan Omar’s election was the result of some extremely elaborate plot by secret Muslim Barack Obama.
Let’s end this little parade of terrible with a post from permanent GamerGater Ian Miles Cheong, who apparently has convinced himself that a video of some random dude getting really, really emotional about the new Star Wars trailer is somehow a harbinger of The Death of Manly Men, or something.
Enjoy your weekend, and do your best to refrain from tweeting anything as bad as any of these terrible tweets! I will do the same.
EDITED TO ADD: Just discovered this one from alleged leftist and Trump/Russia Denier Glenn Greenwald. It’s … something!
