Last summer, right-wing Trump cultist Brenden Dilley gave away the entire MAGA strategy guide when he said spreading fake news was perfectly fine for conservatives because “it doesn’t have to be true; it just has to go viral.”
Yesterday, he lashed out against everyone who calls him out for his lies reiterating that lying to promote Donald Trump is perfectly fine.
It’s the entire Republican platform in a nutshell. Honesty is irrelevant. Posturing and pretending to care about governance is all that matters. They just care about #Winning, not what it takes to do it. It’s the party of family values as long as your family is made up entirely of bullshit artists.
“I don’t give a fuck about being factual,” Dilley said. “I make shit up all the time.”
“I don’t give a fuck,” he continued. “My objective is to destroy Democrats, OK? To destroy liberals, liberalism as an idea, Democrats, and anything that opposes President Trump. That’s my goal. I’ve never made any bones about that.”
“You don’t have to fact check me because I don’t give a fuck,” Dilley added. “I fucking make up shit sometimes, from time to time. I don’t care. I don’t care. Democrats know it. Republicans know it. I don’t mind admitting it. I don’t give a shit … When I get a chance to shit on the left, I don’t mind making shit up. No, not at all.”
The sad thing is that far too many Americans are either ignorant to the fact they’re being lied to… or fully supportive of it. Republicans know that they can dupe white evangelicals into voting for them as long as they pay lip service to Jesus and promote anti-abortion judges. If 100,000 people die of COVID because the Trump administration is too incompetent, it’s not like the “pro-life” people will ever raise a fuss.
Dilley knows it. And he’s weaponizing it. And he’s saying it out loud. And Republicans who know he’s telling the truth won’t do a damn thing about it because admitting their lies might mean giving up their power.
