When I see walk away all I see Joe Walsh response to the GOP in North Carolina

https://www.joewalsh.com/news/273543
April 20, 2016 - "It was my understanding that I was playing a concert which was a non partisan event to benefit the families of American veterans on Sunday, July 17 in Cleveland. The admat I approved said this specifically. Today it was announced that this event is, in fact, a launch for the Republican National Convention. In addition, my name is to be used to raise sponsorship dollars for convention-related purposes. Therefore, I must humbly withdraw my participation in this event with apologies to any fans or veterans and their families that I might disappoint.

I am very concerned about the rampant vitriol, fear-mongering and bullying coming from the current Republican campaigns. It is both isolationist and spiteful. I cannot in good conscience endorse the Republican party in any way. I will look at doing a veteran related benefit concert later this year."

-- Joe Walsh
The song he was opening with after?


Takin' my time
Choosin' my lines
Tryin' to decide what to do
Looks like my stop
Don't want to get off
Got myself hung up on you
Seems to me
You don't want to talk about it
Seems to me
You just turn your pretty head and walk away
Places I've known
Things that I'm growin'
Don't taste the same without you
I got my self in
The worst mess I've been
And I find myself starvin' without you
Seems to me
Talk all night here comes the mornin'
Seems to me
You just forget what we said and greet the day
I've got to cool myself down
Stompin' around
Thinkin' some words I can't name ya
Meet you half way
Got nothing to say
Still I don't suppose I can blame ya
Seems to me
You don't want to talk about it
Seems to me
You just turn your pretty head and walk away
As is is everything with Trump's GOP. It's all true. It's just talking about the wrong side.

Edit: Wait, was that the one hepcat response in a row without a walkaway hashtag? Dammit! I swear you had one there. I'll just use this one instead

Eh, I would need more evidence than that to conclude that it was a Russian troll farm. Could just be that at that time some popular Republican website (or maybe a campaign email) encouraged people to post that quote.

(But yeah, a Russian farm could be plausible as well).

I don't know twitter, but assuming the guy does, I think he makes it pretty clear that even if it were a copy and paste job, all the tweets had the same time stamp. Even if it were simply a button press that hundreds of people pressed at the exact same second at 2am in Texas, there are other telltale signs that refute this.

What is especially heinous is how far they will go to defend these tweets. They are almost certainly foreign generated. They are completely illegal. And Cruz is completely innocent (probably) in making them happen.

Just admit that you have no idea why that happened, and if it turns out to be Russian bots, that's a problem, but in the meantime you're going to enjoy the hundreds of shows of support.

It's almost like they aren't decent, honest people. Almost.

There's also the bot researcher already having these accounts in his tracking system.

Yep. It's clearly a bot farm. Just admit that you had nothing to do with it and perhaps they should be investigated. If it turns out they are legit, well thank you people of Texas for your support, in the meantime, excuse me, I've got a campaign to run and an election to win. No further comment.

We've been over this.

Smoove, break out the dudes making sure everyone knew that they are OK with their swastikas.

It means what the user intends it to mean.

4chan started a hoax, so it only existed in peoples' minds. Then it was used ironically. Then, white supremacists started using it unironically in the same way the hoax said they did.

And here we are. Dudes photobombing with their KKK out for everyone to see.

Maybe it looks fake because it's so awkward for someone to look right at the camera, then scratch their head, then flash an OK/WP sign at the aforementioned camera. If it makes you feel more confident that it really happened, everyone that was watching the MSNBC interview saw the same thing.

By way of Snopes:

The OK sign is actually different. The WP gesture requires opening the top fingers like a W.

That's fine, because right now it's a fad. Things change though. If society adopts it then you'll be the idiot. It won't be on others.

I have no idea if it's gonna stick. I don't even care. But ignore society at your peril. There're a lot of pitchforks out there. And torches. And a lot of angry people looking for targets.

"In my day the raised middle finger with the back of the finger pointed outwards used to mean you were signalling the milk man for an extra pint of milk. I ain't changing. Everyone else should change back" isn't gonna work out too well.

We should try to make thrusting your hips forward repeatedly while flapping your arms up and down into a white power thing. That way way I can go back to telling everyone that I’m OK without worrying about a social gaffe if I use hand gestures.

...of course that would mean I would have to stop doing that when I’m trying to let people know I’m ready for seconds at dinner.
