Remember Sebastian Gorka? He was ousted rather unceremoniously after General Kelly cleaned house. Well, Gorka, like any good vermin, has a new home — an entirely new coalition of wingnut fascists who include among their number Sarah Palin, but not Donald Trump.
Gorka and company call their new coalition the “MAGA Coalition” — it funds candidates who “compete against globalist corporatists interests.” And if you’re wondering what’s meant by that hot pile of boilerplate buzzwords, let me start you with this Wikipedia link: Jewish Bolshevism. As a primer, you can also use this: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Antisemitic canards aside, Gorka’s first appearance will be headlining a rally with the woman who literally embodies the phrase “Know Nothing,” Sarah Palin, in support of former-judge and current senatorial candidate Roy Moore. Moore is running against Luther Strange, an incumbent, and the MAGA Coalition is co-sponsoring the rally with help from the Great America Alliance — a Bannon-aligned group.
So what’s this mean?
Well, it means that, after a brief hiatus, the Republican Civil War is back on again. The hard, hard right-wing — including the Breitbart crowd, who are presumably upset because Trump isn’t herding leftists, feminists, Black people, Mexicans, and Jews into gas chambers yet — is on the warpath, and they’re looking to take down “establishment” candidates.
“Establishment” candidates that now, apparently, count Trump among their number, after Trump threw his weight behind Strange.
Ultimately, no matter who wins, I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that we all lose.
