Response to George II (Original post)

11. this reminds me of the James Gunn situation, but with less substance

what do we have here? 4 tweets from 2-3 years back, 1 of which is clearly sarcastic (#4, the follow-up on Nov. 18, 2016). so 3. they use callous, bigoted language, but they are also removed from context. there may well be something ugly happening, but it would be helpful to know more before drawing conclusions.

i'm not on twitter myself, so i don't know how much there is to establish a pattern, but from what i've seen of his videos, he's quite likely to have been experimenting with some of the alt-right language that was becoming popular at the time to trash the left, but instead to attack what he considers right wingers.

i have mixed feelings about Kulinski's content -- to me, some of it is dead on, and some of it i disagree with intensely. i don't share his animosity towards HRC and moderate Democrats, but i understand how some lefties might. this reminds me of the twitter hit the righties called on James Gunn to cast him as a pedophile using decade-old tweets, but this time it's part of the 2020 primary campaign instead of the Stupid American Culture Wars(tm).
