NEW: The right-wing extremist movements involved in producing J6’s assault on democracy have warped and adapted to the scrutiny they’ve faced since. I tried to summarize what that’s looked like and what it means for the rest of us. I hope you’ll read it. atlanticcouncil.org/in-depth…

This is a prime example of why I included a section in my year since January 6 report about the spreading of separatist and prepper mentalities among the anti-democratic right wing movement
Guy at rally is asked about Trump getting reinstated: “I do my research every day and I trust that something is happening behind the scenes. We’re looking to move off grid and learn how to raise our own food and be prepared for what’s coming if the thing doesn’t get overturned.”

That report, as if I haven’t tweeted about it enough 😉

The presence of the JFK Jr. obsessed QAnon cult and Big Lie peddlers at last night's Trump rally underscores the terrifying fusion between extreme conspiracy theorists and a MAGA movement that controls the Republican Party. My latest for @RollingStone. rollingstone.com/politics/po…

Trump's Arizona rally featured speeches from two people—AZ state Sen. Wendy Rogers and state Rep. Mark Finchem—who say they're Oath Keepers, the org whose founder and 10 other members just got charged with seditious conspiracy. In case you still think these forces are unconnected
Tonight’s Trump rally will feature remarks from “Oath Keeper” Wendy Rogers. 11 Oath Keepers—including the head of the militia group—were formally charged with seditious conspiracy against the US government this week.

It’s less “striking” because this exact paragraph could have been written (and was written) in January 2021 and January 2020 and January 2019 and January 2018 and January 2017 and January 2016.

The Tek Fog investigation is a journalistic feat. A clear, deep dive into mass manipulation. The methodology alone is a marvel. Anyone with an ounce of interest in disinformation should read it: 1) thewire.in/tekfog/en/1.html 2) thewire.in/tekfog/en/2.html 3) thewire.in/tekfog/en/3.html

NEW from @dianafalzone and me Lara Logan recently said she's "not in communication with" Fox News since comparing Fauci to a Nazi war criminal, adding that she doesn't know what's going on with her Fox Nation show. Meanwhile, Fox remains silent on her. thedailybeast.com/fox-news-h…

Additionally, I would underscore that Fuentes played a central organizing role in Stop the Steal. His statements can also be viewed as a reflection on the ideology of its key coordinators
Every Nick Fuentes statement like this should be viewed in the context of his collaborators in the Republican Party, like Paul Gosar.

Nick Fuentes declares that Groypers "are the only ones that aren't racist" before mocking Steve Bannon as a "fat r*tard" who is trying to "flood the zone with ni**er votes." After dropping the N-word, Fuentes acknowledges "that one slipped out."

I think the word choice of "game" is throwing people off. Elaborated below but also tagging to original tweet:
I don’t use the term game to downplay seriousness. I use it because I get the sense that’s how they process it mentally. It’s not about rights or wrongs, or trying to be honest, but rather about racking points on the board toward a larger project however they can.
