Right Wing Loons Recycle “Twitter Gulag” Persecution Fantasy, Inadvertent Hilarity Ensues

Whiny paranoids exchange group hugs, conspiracy theories

This morning I saw the following tweet scroll by in Tweetdeck…

And when I clicked the link to the #TGDN (“Twitter Gulag Defense Network”) hashtag I discovered a brave new world of right wing paranoia and whiny victimhood.

Yes, almost a year later and they’re still ranting away about the hilariously overblown persecution fantasy they call “Twitter Gulag,” their name for what happens when they act like abusive assholes and spam people with insulting tweets, then get reported for spam and blocked.

This time they’ve worked out a scheme where they all follow each other, because they’ve decided that if they have enough followers it’s a magic spell that prevents being imprisoned in Twitter Gulag (which, despite the dramatic name, amounts to nothing more than having their free Twitter accounts temporarily suspended for violating the terms of service).

It’s impossible for wingnuts to conceive that it might be their own lousy behavior causing this to happen, so of course they invent conspiracy theories about it — and one of the main conspiracy theories about “Twitter Gulag” is that it’s being orchestrated by … little old me!

That’s what I call a big win.

What they’re not saying, but what is also true, is that if they ever did get their magical immunity to being blocked and reported for spam, they would immediately turn around and use that immunity to block as many liberals as possible.

That’s the other side of this moronic fantasy; they can’t understand how the lefty socialists are outsmarting them, and they want to be the ones with that magical power.

Children are naive -- they trust everyone. School is bad enough, but, if you put a child anywhere in the vicinity of a church, you're asking for trouble.
