A young right winger declares, “to be quite honest? I like to be offensive. It’s fun.”

This article about "California Conservatives" or rather, the "intellectual" basis for Trumpism that's being fleshed out by certain academics and media stars centered in California, is very interesting. It boils down to the fact that the conservative movement no longer has any interest in ideas or ideology and basically is just about racism and owning the libs. And they are vastly enjoying the freedom of just being themselves.

I'm not sure how groundbreaking it really is, however. This is just the right being boiled down to its essence, a project that started a long time ago and which was evident in California when the OG Trumpist, the obnoxious Andrew Breitbart from LA, became their biggest star well over a decade ago.

They are simply right wing assholes and are well-represented by people like this young fascist who demonstrated in Charlottesville:


"To be quite honest? I like to be offensive. It's fun."

These California Conservatives are exactly like him. No difference at all. Its what the Republican Party has become all over the country.
