No One Despises MAGA Voters More Than MAGA Elites

From The Bulwark, by Jonathan V. Last:

ABP: Always. Be. Projecting.

We talk a lot about how projection is the sincerest form of Trumpism:

Anyway, now we can add a line to our listicle, courtesy of the Salt Lake Tribune:

Lions Not Sheep is a Utah-based clothing company launched in 2016 that makes stridently pro-America, pro-gun, pro-Trump shirts, hats and apparel. . . .

Every order comes with a free copy of the U.S. Constitution because they love America. So much so, in fact, that they had made a big deal about all their clothing being manufactured right here in the U.S. of A.

That is, they used to.

Last week, the owner of “Lions Not Sheep” agreed to pay a $211,335 fine to the Federal Trade Commission after the agency accused the company of cutting the labels that said “Made in China” or other countries out of their clothes and stamping them “Made in USA”.

You can’t make this shirt up. They called the forking company Lions Not Lambs and their entire business plan assumed that their customers would be mindless sheep.

Anyway, I get the sense that a large part of the MAGA mindset for Ordinary Folks is that they see it as a way of saying FU to people they believe look down on them.

But I promise you that no one looks down on the great unwashed as cynically and disdainfully as their betters in the MAGA movement do.
