“I support Assad because he's the defender of Middle Eastern Christianity"

Via Frank

The brutal leader at the center of Syria’s five-year-long war has found support in one of the least likely places — among the alt-right.

The white nationalists and trolls who identify with the alt-right have lifted up Bashar al-Assad as a hero in recent years. Support for the Syrian president means they can further tangled internet conspiracy theories, taps into a deep vein of anti-Semitism, anti-interventionism, and anti-globalism, and allows them to wind up their biggest enemy: liberals. (You got that right at least: liberals = commies)

  1. Assad isn't a nice man but at least he tolerates and protects fellow Christians. That fact probably explains why so many hate and want to remove him.

    Y'all have a nice day.

    1. Thanks.
