When did Australia become such a right wing talking point in the US? Cruz was on about it last week and got schooled by the premier of the Northern Territory on tiwtter, yer wan Candace Owens was calling for the invasion and liberation of it last night and this guy ...
has been posting Australia content for the past month or so maybe longer.
He was actually on it first, I wonder if that has something to do with the time it takes for the content on the internet's darker corners to make it through to more mainstream figures (Owens is still a bit of a fringe loon but she's prominent in the same way Ben Shapiro is)
A while back I was hearing all of this talk of the PCR cycles being "wrong". It wasn't clear if those that were talking about knew what PCR was, or how it worked, or what cycles they were talking about, or in what way they were wrong. But they were absolutely confident that they were wrong.
I was baffled and I mentioned it here, and someone else here pointed out to me: there aren't that many talking points for these guys. What looks like chaos and mass dissent is actually a tiny handful of ideas, memes basically, that get passed about and repeated.
I'd guess it's for a similar reason that you're seeing this Australia thing. At one point it was France getting overrun with lads in burkas roaming the streets at night deflowering helpless Parisian virgins, at one point it societal breakdown in Copenhagen I believe, and so on. There's a co-ordination that occurs, and if a couple of ideas are injected into a few Facebook influencer posts you end up with Australia needing to be invaded to ensure its freedom.
