In a comment here:
Another Ian (h/t) pointed to an SDA article about more folks watching Trump at CPAC than the Golden Globes (or much of anything else on the ‘news’ really…)
Mostly the comments there make it an ‘article’. The whole thing is really just a one liner with a one liner heading:
NOTHING SEEMS TO BE WORKING
March 1, 2021 Kate
31 million viewers for Donald Trump’s CPAC speech. And that was just online.
Not to mention all the folks like me who only watched it a while AFTER that and for that matter on an “off brand” video service (not CPAC nor CSPAN nor YouTube) so highly unlikely that they even saw my contribution to the numbers. Those of us who have as much as possible abandoned the banners are still here, just no longer in their advertising statistics…
In the article, “And that was just online” is a link to a Forbes article:
That has “the usual” Left-spin / snark in it. Well, FWIW, I’ve run out of patience for “Cancel Culture” and for the “Lies For Effect” they just love to sprinkle everywhere, AND for the “corruption of the language” they do. I’ve reached the point where such crap, if put “in my face” will be met with a reply of: “Bull Shit. That’s just a load of crap lies and spin. Here’s the truth.” and then some Truth Telling.
So in that spirit, I’m going to De-Spin the Forbes article and Truth-it-up. My additions will be in bold, deletions in
strike out and I’ll think of something to do with italics if needed. Maybe I’ll use them for MY Snark. I’m not going to embed nor Truth-up the tweets they embedded, as those as just the usual snarky trash and you can work that out yourself.

Social MediaSnarky Twitter Mobs Of Leftists Reactions To Donald Trump’s CPAC Speech
On Sunday night, the 78th Golden Globe Awards
honored the bestparaded around those who most wanted to show off in American television and film as chosen bythey paid or sucked up to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. However the real show, according to social media, had taken place hours earlier across the country in Orlando, Florida at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). It marked the first time formerlegitimate President Donald Trump spoke to followers since Usurper President in name only Joe Biden took office in January, and just weeks after Trump was acquitted in his second phony baloney fraud of an impeachment show trial.
Also quite notable was that it was a stark departure from protocol, in which former Republican presidents largely stay silent on matters related to the sitting president allowing former Democratic Presidents, like Obama, to have the stage. Instead Trump offered a strong criticism of Biden and
suggestedpointed out the fact that U.S. policy had gone from “America first to America last.”
CPAC is the largest meeting of conservative
activistsparty members and politicians in the United States, and it generally serves as a portent to the direction the Republican Party is headed. Based on the reception Trump received at the event, and on social media – it is clear that Trump will remain a dominant force as those folks were crazy in love with him.
Moreover, Trump made it quite clear that he wasn’t interested in forming a new party, but instead would work to
uniterun RINOs out of town with the help of true Republicans and helpabsolutely take back control of Congress including the Senate and House of Representatives.
social mediathe loudest voices on my Twitter Feed it seems clear that Trump’s supporters aren’t looking to move to (sic) past his eragive up and play dead like in the past and instead could beare looking forward to the 2024 campaign and blood bath. While formerLegitimate President Trump didn’t actually announce that he’ll be running again, his words could be inferred to suggestwere pretty much a “Bring It!” that Trump shared with his supporters all of whom are isup for a rematch with Biden – and told his followers he’d be ready to win for “third time” – insisting again that voter fraud was the thing we all saw; with dead people voting, machines diddling votes to Biden, and truck loads of fake ballots being delivered in the dead of night after, BY LAW, vote counting was required to end; and were the method of the Big Steal by played a factor in his loss toBiden in November.
Social Media Support
Since the November election, Twitter and other platforms have largely been filled with garbage tweets and posts calling for Trump’s impeachment, conviction and arrest, while others have been hoping Trump would simply go away, which is what you get when you ban anyone right of Stalin and keep only the Bat Shit Crazy TDS sufferers . However, after the CPAC speech, it
seemed thatwas clear his followers have been energized in ways not even seen during the run up to the election. Man are we screwed ’cause those folks are NOT taking the BS bait that it’s over and Biden “won”. I think maybe the Big Steal of the election really pissed them off.
Actor/comedian Terrence K. Williams (@W_terrence) was among Trump supporters who praised the legitimate
Reporter Kyle Becker (@kylenabecker) noted the number of viewers who tuned in to watch Trump’s CPAC address.
There were also many who noted that CPAC scored higher ratings than Sunday evening’s preening session and strutting practice Golden Globes ceremony of ego stroking on NBC.
CriticsTwitter Trolls, Bots, and TDS Sufferers Will Remain Vocal
There were a fair number of Twitter Trolls, Bots, and TDS Sufferers
detractorson social media on Sunday and Monday, as well. Among them was Noah Bookbinder (@NoahBookbinder) (Who?), president of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethicssome left wing advocacy NGO you never heard of with a Sellers Puff Name, likely funded with dark money most likely sucked out of government indirectly in Washington, who tweeted, “Donald Trump is not only maintaining the lie that he won the 2020 election, but his supporters are using that lie to justify restricting voting and democracy. That makes passing HR1, the For the People Act, which protects voting and democracy, more urgent.” A really crap thing to Tweet,really, as there’s boat loads of actual evidence of The Big Steal and we all know it, we’ve seen the videos and the forensics reports, but hey if we can get the Permanent Steal Forever HR1 crammed through, who cares about honesty or a true vote. Right?
There was also no shortage of memes that poked
funat the formerlegitimate president, though they were all pretty lame. Why can’t we meme like those guys on the right? while others attempted with our usual GoTo Insult of “RACIST!!!” to compare CPAC to a white nationalist event but that’s really hard with so many Black and Hispanic conservatives now,so it came off really pathetic.
What is clear from the amazing and huge response on Sunday and Monday is that Trump remains
largelyfirmly at the head of the U.S. conservative movement driving a bigger Trump Train than ever, and his supporters continue to stand by him, and they are really pissed and coming back hard. Given this support, it is unlikely that Biden’s calls for unitysurrender to the Big Steal Usurper Fraud can come to anything fruition– half the country is standing by the other guy cheering loudly and saying “Hell NO!” to us, while Biden’s own supporters still seem unwilling to show up anywhere or recognize the truth of the situation and never were able to listen to any opinion but the one we fed them compromise with anything the GOP has to say.
The uncivil war we started, fueled, and fostered will likely continue to rage on, especially on social media where the only people left are the idiots we got all riled up and hooked on TDS, having driven all the sane people away.
There, that’s better.
