This is nonsense. We’re actually killing off whites with tighty whities and saturated fat.

Sometimes it seems that professional goopers all have doctorates in crazed blather and toxic spewage. Earned at Trump U. of course.

So lemme get this straight. The FBI, BLM, all the various acronyms – they put together a conspiracy to overthrow the government for the Republicans?

Or no, wait – they put together a conspiracy to fail at insurrection in order to blame the right wing for failing?

Occam’s razor rates this completely plausible.

Masters has been flailing since Monday. He’s already a punchline. Arizona can do better, and they will.

Ill-advised…to say the least…but, like @teenlaqueefa said, it’s RWNJ S.O.P.

Obviously, people like this expect to encounter only sycophants as questioners.

Masters has anger management issues too. He shoved and punched a guy who walked into a RepublicanFascist gathering in Green Valley wearing a BLM tee shirt.

Nothing says “powerful alpha male” like beating up an elderly dude. Except maybe roughing up a woman or kicking your dog.

So what was the end game – they wake up January 7 with permanent TFG, and say to themselves, “We got those Republicans good this time!”?

“Don’t we suspect that like one-third of the people outside of the Capitol complex on January 6 were actual FBI agents hanging out?” Masters wondered aloud at the GrassRoots Tea Party Activists of Arizona event, according to CNN. “What did people know and when did they know it? We got to get to the bottom of this.”

“Exactly how many of those present at the Capitol complex on January 6 were . . . working directly or indirectly with an agency of the United States government?”

535, at a minimum.
