Race matters. As Ariana Grande is nonwhite, as shown in yesterday’s post about the Illuminati princess, I wouldn’t expect her to make any statement against open borders or against brown or black immigrants flooding the West.
Both MILO and David Duke took the opportunity to get some attention to the issue of immigration by taking a swing at the demonic, Kabbalah worshiping pop idol.
Singer Ariana Grande, whose Monday night concert in Manchester, U.K. was targeted by terrorists, is now the subject of judgment by right wing and racist trolls on social media. The outspoken and predominantly conservative social media critics include such controversial figures as former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos and former Ku Klux Klan Imperial Wizard David Duke.
Yiannopoulos, who is permanently banned from Twitter, posted a string of messages on his Facebook page. “Sadly, Ariana Grande is too stupid to wise up and warn her European fans about the real threats to their freedom and their lives,” he wrote on Tuesday, just one day after the attack. “She will remain ferociously pro-immigrant, pro-Islam and anti-America. Makes you wonder whether they bombed to attack her or in solidarity.”
On Wednesday, he added that the fact that she hasn’t explicitly condemned the bombing less than 48 hours later is a “supreme act of cowardice.”
n their attacks against the pop star, some critics are invoking a 2015 incident wherein Grande made what many believe to be an anti-American and unpatriotic statement. She also, strangely, licked doughnuts on display at a bakery she was visiting. She apologized for saying “I hate America” and the doughnut licking, saying she was “sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words.”
Grande hasn’t yet addressed Monday’s attack publicly, save for a tweet immediately after saying that she feels “broken” and is “so so sorry.” There is also an unconfirmed report that she has offered to pay for the funerals of the night’s 22 victims.
Besides Yiannopoulos, some far-right personalities and white supremacists criticizing Grande include David Duke, who suggested she put her fans at risk by supporting LGBT rights, among other things, and Wayne Allyn Root, a Libertarian who ran for president in 2008, who tweeted that “perhaps (Monday’s attack) changed liberal ignorance of Grande.” Lauren Cooley, a conservative personality, also wrote to her 48,000 Twitter followers that Grande “is a spoiled brat” for not visiting injured fans at the hospital because it’s “not like she was in the blast zone.”
Many on Twitter, however, are aggressively defending Grande, pointing out the pop star is likely traumatized and still processing the events, since it has been less than 48 hours since the bombing occurred.
