no. the dirtbag left enjoy ragging on PC progressives but don't take it that far.
I'm not really sure who constitutes this crowd or what defines them, but would I be a million miles out if I suggested it's mostly middle-class white people who are just a bit too into Slavoj Zizek and who enjoy the social caché of being "radical" but who also enjoy using words like "retard" and "tranny"?

Texas Lawyer Gets 15 Years for Scheme to Defraud Cocaine Traffickers

A Texas lawyer known as the D.W.I. Dude for specializing in defending clients charged with driving while intoxicated and drug possession was sentenced this week to more than 15 years in prison for a scheme to pocket money that Colombian cocaine traffickers had been told would go to bribe officials, federal prosecutors said.

According to prosecutors, the lawyer, James Morris Balagia, 65, of Manor, Texas, and two associates solicited payments from drug traffickers he was representing and told them that the money would be paid as bribes in return for favorable treatment of their cases.

The federal authorities were alerted to the scheme by the drug dealers whom Mr. Balagia and his associates were targeting, according to Joe Brown, a former U.S. attorney. “Fortunately for him, these drug dealers chose to turn him in to the F.B.I. rather than handle it any other way,” Mr. Brown said at an earlier stage of the case, The Dallas Morning News reported.

when we were in our mid-20s (aka, many years ago), a friend jokingly signed me up for a free NRA membership and I started getting all this stuff in the mail from them, including an NRA baseball cap. I remember wearing it ironically for awhile, but this was way back when they were just a gun-owners association and not yet involved in the political mainstream.

I think Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom is very happy to see Jenner enter the race.

Reminds me of the time I visited Baalbek, which is in a part of Lebanon that's controlled Hezbollah, and as we left the site we passed this area with people selling all kinds of (presumably official) Hezbollah merch, so I bought a T-shirt as a present for my best friend.

When I gave it to him I said he should wear it out the next time he was in Stamford Hill. Don't think he ever did. The big wuss.

Hezbollah merch, who would have guessed? but yeah, that might be a tricky one to wear out in places where they know what it means.

Reminds me of the Red Scare podcast merch in ISIS style.

But that's based on the ISIS flag, which some people might find distasteful or offensive.
