After having lost the political and economic argument, the alt right has resorted to childishly mocking their adversaries rather than engaging them in debate. Progressives who try to engage Trump supporters with reason and evidence are now promptly labelled as “cucks”, the alt right’s new favorite term to characterize their opponents as weak and submissive.
In their latest escapade, the alt right internet trolls have proceeded to relentlessly mock a recently leaked video of Obama’s workout routine. The video below shows Obama giving it his all in the gym, and showing us what he is made of.
Sure, he may not be the toughest person in the gym, but he is the President of the United Sates for goodness’ sake. The fact that he makes an effort to get into the gym in the first place is commendable, and by doing so he is setting a great example for young people all over the country.
But that’s not good enough for the alt right. Because he doesn’t meet their testosterone-fueled macho standards, they have proceeded to mock our President in every way possible. Just look at these horrific YouTube comments, many of which make vulgar homophobic references!
Contrast this to Michelle’s workout, which nobody has dared to mock.
This just goes to show how far our political discourse has sunk in this country. The right has nothing more to offer than mockery and slander of their political opponents. In the era of Post-truth, honest and fact-based arguments are hard to come by on the internet. The accredited media, now facing persecution under the Trump administration, truly is the last refuge of reasoned argument in a sea of lies and fake news.
