It took me a while to figure out that he's a parody because mostly he retweets things that--by the low standards of SJW Twitter--are not particularly outrageous. So if you just look at his feed it all seems pretty earnest.

Ellie, because everyone's always been asking him "But couldn't they use RICO to prosecute Those Guys?!?!?!" It's never RICO, but he always has to say why it's not RICO. It's like the equivalent of "It's not Lupus!" on House.

Avenatti is such a clown.

On the 16th anniversary of the Iraq War, Ari Fleischer posts a whiny Twitter thread explaining why the war boosters were wrong for the right reasons, whereas the war opponents were right for the wrong reasons, so even though shitloads of people died in that war it's unfair to, like, criticize those responsible or anything.

I am curious what those 'right reasons' were, if there were no WMD. I opposed the war, even though I did believe Saddam Hussein had WMD. So why go to war?

TBS, I tend to think that the Bush the Lesser administration's WMD allegations were a prime example of confirmation bias: They 'knew' Saddam Hussein had them, so they believed any information that supported their 'knowledge' and rejected any information that contradicted it.

IIRC, it was a combination of "Saddam is a REALLY REALLY bad guy," "Saddam was somehow involved in 9/11 even though the religious fundamentalists who actually did the attack hated him," "If you're not with us you're with the terrorists," "what about the 'rape rooms', huh?" and "My daddy's Iraq War left Saddam in charge of the country; here's my chance to one-up him!" Also: "The only reason anybody could oppose this war is because they are hippie peaceniks who refuse to admit ANY war might be necessary! Don't look at those Iraq War opponents who nonetheless supported our going to Afghanistan after the Taliban, though, because those facts fuck up my narrative." Remember when Bush administration hacks actually used the phrase "reality-based community" as an INSULT against those of us who opposed that war? "Dang political opponents of mine, citing actual facts to explain why they think our idea is a super-bad one! We don't need any fucking reality here!"

The one argument for the Iraq war that I tended to agree with was Saddam's multiple genocides: Against the Kurds in the north, the Shias in the south and against the Marsh Arabs in the Euphrates delta. I am still troubled by the question of permitting genocide to go unopposed. Sanctions don't cut it.
