I actually think that Tom is a really sharp guy.



He clearly knows how to rap and I think in another life he honestly could just be what Machine Gun Kelly was before his pop-punk pivot, but he chased a bag by selling his morals to appeal to chuds. Collaborating with the likes of Blaire White and Ben Shapiro and Adam Callhoun....dude honestly carries all of them and I think credit where credit is due, he knows how to make sticky punchlines and some catchy choruses.



I'm super far to the left but "they riot in the streets/and you defunded the police/so there's no one to protect you" is, like, a legitimately hilarious line that is the sorta thing you can only write if you're actually smart enough to not believe actually believe the bullshit you're peddling. He knows what he is saying has no basis in reality but he just keeps hammering his thumb on the scale.



I think he had beef with Mac Lethal a few years ago and if I remember correctly, he kinda won without making it about any rightwing talking points.



Idk, I kinda find Tom MacDonald to be funny because it's so obvious that he's a grifter collecting rightwing checks but they hold him up as someone that proves he somehow bucks the "right wingers don't make good art" argument.

That’s the thing tho, they’re all grifters. Ben Shapiro is a smart man. He says dumb shit but uses big brain words because that’s where the money is at for him. Same with Candace Owens, she gets to be the token black woman that conservatives can point to and say they’re not racist. She was also literally a democrat before Trump. She saw a lane to success, and despite how unethical it is, she capitalized on it. Most of these pieces of shit are at least above average intelligence.


Except Steven Crowder, I do think he is legitimately dumb as shit, and also extremely unfunny despite being a “comedian”.

I don’t think most of these people are faking their beliefs the way Tom is

Ben is sorta at a weird crossroads where I am not sure if I would so much call him a grifter so much as I would that he is spineless. He's fairly vocal, relatively speaking, about his criticisms of the GOP and Trump but then he just handwaves those away being painting made up boogeymen from "the left". I also do think that he is actually a fairly dumb person. I believe he believes what he believes. Outside of his obvious business acumen, I don't think he's all that bright. I legitimately might say that Tom MacDonald is smarter lol



Candace is a total and complete grifter, as is Blair White. Steven Crowder is dumb as shit and honestly just a nazi

I actually don't know the extent of Crowder still being a thing or not.



He basically bet on himself by declining the $50 million Daily Wire deal and lost big time by the whole divorce thing happening and all the Daily Wire folks basically ganging up on him. I believe he was demonetized from Youtube as will and moved exclusively to Rumble (lol)



Haven't heard much other than that

yeah he's obviously getting the stupidest people to fall for his bullshit and it's working. and that includes us schmucks for listening to his garbage just to hate on it. we're just as dumb as the fools that take it as gospel!

God Blair White. I completely forgot about her. She really doesn’t think that hardcore alt right guys would get rid of her at the first opportunity.

These people are all nihilists making money off people who have very real values, enabling fascism to pad their wallets and their egos (except where they are actually fascists, like Shapiro if he gets going about Gaza)

The worst example remains forever and always Dave Rubin

But fuck all of them

dave rubin isnt even good at it he's just got a half a flickering light bulb going on in his head. it is really sad tho how no one around him accepts him/his husband/his kids and he just smiles at it and agrees

Genuinely such a great interview, I think about it whenever MacDonald is back in the news
