This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 88%. (I’m a bot)


An anti-tax group funded primarily by billionaires has emerged as one of the biggest backers of the Republican lawmakers who sought to overturn the US election results, according to an analysis by the Guardian.

The Club for Growth has supported the campaigns of 42 of the rightwing Republicans senators and members of the House of Representatives who voted last week to challenge US election results, doling out an estimated $20m to directly and indirectly support their campaigns in 2018 and 2020, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Dozens of the Republicans supported by Club for Growth voted to challenge the election results even after insurrectionist stormed the Capitol, which led to five deaths, including the murder of a police officer.

The riot at the U.S. Capitol and bogus claims of election fraud have led former allies of President Trump to distance themselves : worldnews


Just today I saw several times from our right-wing populists: "It was BLM", it was electoral fraud and other such nonsense. But overall they are calm, there is just not as much gossip as usual on right-wing issues. Biggest news about the right wing today was that they launched a website reporting teachers who badmouth right-wing populists, i.e. collecting names of undesirable people … again. So far, at least, they have been fairly silent about it. It doesn't look very good. The truth is that when we talk about neo-fascists, it is difficult to talk about topical issues without mentioning our right-wing populists. They are the same people.
