With a name like "Blake Masters" I fully expect The Blue Beetle or The Question to roughing him up after spoiling his plan to spread chaos and stolen New Gods technology to crooks and wannabe villains, only to be unmasked as an escaped Glorious Godfrey body double android.

In Blake Masters, white extremists feel that they may soon have an ally in the Senate. The 36-year-old venture capitalist...

*Toss in trash*

Don't forget that he's pretty popular with the admin of Stormfront too.

I'm guessing this 'Blake Masters' is the evil parallel-universe counterpart of 'Make Blasters,' who must be a saint.

Blake Masters?

Sounds like a gay porno star.

Who knew that white terrorists had social secretaries who made sure they stayed in contact with other notables in the field -- coordinating book signing parties, News Max interviews, and confidential informant meetings.  The life of a social gadfly.

Didn't need anymore of the article. That's all we needed to know to hate this guy's guts.

Peter Thiel is an insane racist asshole who should be prosecuted and face prison.

He and the Mercers are farking cancerous dickbags.

Came here to say this.  Article was paywalled, so couldn't read it most of it, but I know that along with JD Vance in Ohio, Masters is another Thiel protege backed by his considerable resources.

That article is pretty upsetting. To Paul Gosar. He's put is so much effort being the White Nationalist/Nazi-adjacent guy in Congress for Arizona, and he doesn't even get a passing mention.

"venture capitalist"

Gotta hand it to the right wing media - it's a tough sell to pass off farking venture capitalists as being the emerging voice of "working class America", but somehow it seems half the GOP running successfully on a "(white) working class populist" platform are drawn from this industry.
 
2022-08-17 10:10:23 AM  
Theil is an unabashed fascist and anyone he supports, ever, has to have that hung around their neck for the general. If B.M.'s press coverage doesn't include the Thiel connection, the press will be failing democracy (again)

Heh. B.M.
 
2022-08-17 10:10:49 AM  
They aren't extremists. They are the entirety of the republican party.

The sooner the rest of us accept that they will gleefully murder the rest of us the better we will be able to prepare.

He was against Social Security before he was for it now that he's in the general.

Something tells me if he gets to the Senate there won't be any cut to Social Security proposed he won't personally champion.

Not too surprising though since they think a guy with a golden toilet in his apartment in Manhattan is a warrior for the working class.

Fox News really has done a number on these people.

I had no idea Ted Kaczynski had been embraced by the far right. I remember when he was current. In the papers of the day they called his manifesto "rambling", but I thought it was pretty well organized and to the point.

It's a parallel to why these white supremacist/nationalist/racist folks can't grasp Trump or his ilk being criminals.

To them, criminal isn't a description of a person who committed crime, it's a class of people. And if you got them to describe what a "criminal" looks like, invariably it would look a lot more like Ice Cube than Bernie Madoff.

When they hear "working class America", they translate that to "hard working people", which is all the people who aren't "mooching off the system", which is.....you can fill it in.

It's racism 101.

Eventually, all general elections will come down to a choice between Democrats & white supremacists.

That's Bannon's business model too.  He requires a million a year retainer, so it's said.  He usually has a dozen "angels" floating around him any given time.   Imagine how hard it is having 12 job reviews a year.  Imagine when a committee does the review instead of the just the big Koch, Peter, or Mercer.

Now he is running television ads showing him posed with a wife and three kids to try to dilute the freakish incel vibe he gives off.  I'm not buying it.   Someone needs to look into this.

I like to think that Blaster was the Downs-syndrome guy from the first movie, and that's why Max acted like he recognized him.

Some Junkie Cosmonaut: Blake Masters is just a dumbass Q-nut candidate,


Blake Masters is an employee of Peter Thiel.  He is running because Thiel told him to.  He will do only what Thiel wants him to do.

And Peter Thiel is a fascist.
 
2022-08-17 11:07:55 AM  
Blake Masters.  Not a white nationalist, but "number one" with white nationalists!
 
2022-08-17 11:09:22 AM  
Worried about big organizations spying on everyday people? You should be when it comes to [Blake Masterson | JD Vance]. XX% of their political funding comes from the owner of the largest corporate surveillance group in the world. They represent a company who named itself after the all seeing globes used by the villain in Lord of the Rings. And that's just what they want to bring to [AZ | OH] and the US.
*insert pic of candidate juxtaposed with LotR still*
