Alleged conservative Rick Wilson, a formerly relevant commentator who has been relegated to the likes of MSNBC and CNN after several years of bashing Trump and the America that he serves, had some interesting comments about Qatar, which he visited over the weekend.
“It’s been a real pleasure attending the #DohaForum this year,” he said on Twitter. “Qatar is a stunning, vibrant nation.”
Wilson has not praised the United States in this manner in years, to be sure. But Qatar, which is a bona fide slave state guilty of human rights violations and inequality unimaginable in the Western world garnered Wilson’s affection.
According to Human Rights Watch, Qatar’s “penal code does not criminalize domestic violence or marital rape.” The law in Qatar dictates that it is a woman’s responsibility to “look after the household and to obey her husband.” Sodomy is a crime punishable by up to three years in prison. Sex outside of marriage is punishable by flogging – or the death penalty if one has sex outside of marriage with a non-Muslim.
Stunning and vibrant!
Not to mention that whole forced-labor-to-build-stadiums-for-the-world-cup thing, which has been equated to modern slavery.
Despite that, Rick Wilson loves Qatar. On the contrary, he’s been fairly critical of the freest and most prosperous nation on earth ever since President Donald J. Trump was elected.
“Breaking for lunch at the #DohaForum,” he Tweeted. “The scope of how far respect and regard for America has fallen due to you-know-who can hardly be overstated.”
You mean America has lost respect among the barbarians in Qatar? Stop the presses! Rick Wilson is convulsing!
“The Trump/Hegseth interview looks for all the world like a WWE/MMA event. That’s us, America.” he said snottily in another Tweet.
How dare us filthy middle American simpletons enjoy such sport as wrestling and martial arts, the elitist opined.
He called the #MAGA movement (63 million plus Americans) a “horror story:”
No such criticisms for the Qatari’s.
“Have you seen America lately?” he asked in response to whether Americans were stupid.
Such commentary can only be found from the displaced coastal elite who have been left behind by Republicans and will never be accepted by Democrats. They are truly a pathetic bunch.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
