The Lingering Political ‘Truther’ Discourse Over ‘The Slap’ Is Outrageous

by Shelt Garner

The issue of what really happened with “The Slap” has established a minor cottage industry of “truthers” who think it was all some sort of evil Leftist plot to fool God fearing MAGA people.

Or something. I’m not quite clear as to what the motives of the such a plot were.

Anyway, people who buy into such bullshit are part of a broader problem whereby people in the center-Left are assumed to be the scum of the earth by MAGA. The whole thing Slap Truther concept is part of a broader effort to dehumanize people on the liberal-progressive spectrum.

The idea that Leftist so evil and powerful that they could stage something like The Slap and get away with it kind of boggles my mind. It’s extremely aggravating and an indication of how fucked we are politically as a nation. The MAGA New Right continues to lurch towards being outright Nazis.

The moment a MAGA person becomes POTUS, that’s the end of American democracy. Or we have a civil war. Take your pick. Things are very fucked up politically in the United States. I don’t have any ready answers.

Leave the country if you can, I guess?
