Uh oh "factional rift" amongst the ZOOMERS. This is too funny.

From a thread by Demovictory9 Donald Jr. gets heckled off stage BY THEIR OWN CULT MEMBERS.

At first, Trump and Guilfoyle tried to ignore the discontent, which originated with a fringe group of America Firsters who believe the Trump administration has been taken captive by a cabal of internationalists, free-traders, and apologists for mass immigration.

The fiasco pointed to a factional rift on the Trump-supporting conservative right that has been growing rapidly in recent weeks, particularly among “zoomers” – student-age activists. On one side are one of the sponsors of Trump Jr’s book tour, Turning Point USA, a campus conservative group with a track record of bringing provocative rightwing speakers to liberal universities.

On the other side are far-right activists – often referred to as white supremacists and neo-Nazis, although many of them reject such labels – who believe in slamming the door on all immigrants, not just those who cross the border without documents, and who want an end to America’s military and diplomatic engagement with the wider world.

A number of the loudest voices at Sunday’s event were supporters of Nick Fuentes, a 21-year-old activist with a podcast called America First that has taken particular aim at Turning Point USA and its 25-year-old founder, Charlie Kirk. In a number of his own recent campus appearances, Kirk has faced questions accusing him of being more interested in supporting Israel than in putting America first. He has responded by calling his detractors conspiracists and racists.

On Sunday, Kirk appeared alongside Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle but said nothing.

Two Fuentes supporters, delighted with the outcome of Trump Jr’s appearance, later told the Guardian the pro-Trump movement was being infected with “fake conservatism” and that the president himself was at the mercy of a cabal of deep state operatives who wouldn’t let him do many of the things he campaigned on.

1. Ultimate irony. Trump Jr. is really ignorant. Guilfoyle is contemptible, but apparently has to

come along as his one functioning "neuronal synapse".

3. :) Love it! Left over an hour and a half early due to far-right

heckling drowning out the theme of his book, "Triggered: How The Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us."



From what I've read, "zoomer" is morphing to mean far-right extremist zoomers, white power types, etc., although that might just have started as another 4chan-type attempt to manipulate memes to sucker as many as possible.
