It turns out — and really, to no one’s huge surprise — that the back-to-work movement at odds with majority public opinion on the COVID-19 lockdown ended up being as fake as a three-dollar bill. While it may have racked up a few followers here and there from the general public, at its core it has always been orchestrated and funded by deep-pocketed lobbying networks seeking to throw their weight around, and it remains so.
… or, in the more common parlance, astroturfing.
A running theme with white nationalists, Neo-Nazis, and other hate groups is they’ve tried repeatedly to avoid the name they’ve earned for themselves while still trying to perpetrate all of the moral and criminal wrongs historically associated with their movements. To varying degrees, they will advocate fervently in public spaces for the advancement of racism, social segregation, racist propaganda, hate speech, acts of violence, and even murder, but if recent news coverage is any indication, many seem unable to stomach the idea of getting caught or called out for their disgusting behaviour.
This, in and of itself, speaks volumes.
Remember — if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, then racist apologists be damned, it’s a fuckin’ duck.
