'Fortunate Son' Plays Again At Trump Farewell Ignoring Irony And Backlash
Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortunate Son” blared perhaps one last time for Donald Trump on Wednesday ― and Twitter users couldn’t believe it.The 1969 hit, which blasted privileged draft dodgers during the Vietnam War, had become a regular on the Trump playlist for campaign rallies and appearances.It again played on the loudspeaker at Joint Base Andrews as the crowd awaited Trump’s arrival aboard Marine One to depart for Florida into civilian life as the election loser.They’re playing Fortunate Son where Trump is set to give one final speech.They’re playing Fortunate Son for Trump who received 5 deferments pic.twitter.com/3c77mnCfwU— Ivonne (@servoisnaked) January 20, 2021Many again remarked on the irony of Trump co-opting the song ― he has been accused of being a draft dodger himself during the Vietnam War era over disputed claims of bone spurs in his feet. A cease-and-desist order from CCR frontman John Fogerty didn’t stop Trump and Co. from playing the song. Neither did a TikTok response from Fogerty and his granddaughter.Perhaps the end of his presidency will.Twitter users chimed in: Do they really play 'Fortunate son' again for #CadetBoneSpurs?Be gone mthrfckr pic.twitter.com/DNm5z4ci81— Martin, moldy german racoon

Here’s how to understand the politics of the US Capitol breach | Heinrich Geiselberger
We witnessed what I call liquid authoritarianism: far-right politics for an age of instability and flux“When fascism comes back, it will not say ‘I am fascism’; it will say ‘I am antifascism’.” This prophecy, attributed to the Italian writer Ignazio Silone, has been appropriated by the online right and become a tired Twitter meme. Users now replace “antifascism” with basically anything. Some attempts to come to grips with the storming of the US Capitol have adopted a similar syntax: it was an (attempted) coup disguised as something else. Others insisted it wasn’t a coup but a “venting of accumulated resentments” (Edward Luttwak), “a big biker gang dressed as circus performers” (Mike Davis), an “alt-right charivari” (Alex Callinicos), or a “re-enactment” of fantasies originally tested on social media (Wolfgang Ullrich).Some of these interpretations have been accused of trivialising the events. But the semantic helplessness in face of the Washington events suggests a wider uncertainty about the more general phenomenon. The confusion about the event mirrors confusion about the movement as a whole. Is contemporary “rightwing populism” best described as “authoritarianism” or even “fascism”? The answer depends on which level one focuses on: the ideology, the structure of their institutions, the aesthetics, the supporters or the consequences of their actions. If we follow the Hungarian philosopher Gáspár Miklós Tamás, with his very broad definition of fascism as “a break with the enlightenment tradition of citizenship as a universal entitlement”, the similarities sharpen. A penchant for violence and machismo also points in that direction. Continue reading...

Conspiracy! review – help a Trumpist president steal an election
PC, Mac; Tim SheinmanIn this brief but insidious information game, you’re an aide to a defeated commander-in-chief who is refusing to concedeThe terrible truth about conspiracy theories is that they’re fun. Making and sharing connections offers a sense of control so potent we might willingly blind ourselves to the provenance of the information in question – a tendency amplified by online recommendation algorithms, which point us towards ideas we already sympathise with. This is the gloomy message of Conspiracy!, an extremely timely text game in which you fabricate a plot to steal a US election.Created in December, as Donald Trump and his followers doubled down on claims of voting fraud, the game casts you as an aide to an ousted Republican president who is refusing to concede. To make your employer’s case, you must assemble evidence for a conspiracy that folds in every deep state fairytale from human sacrifice to the ruinous effects of 5G internet. Play is about simple but satisfying comparison and deduction. You comb through a small stash of newspaper excerpts, podcasts, forum posts and classified emails, assigning dates to a series of captioned Polaroids. Get five dates correct, and the game locks them in while handing you fresh materials for your investigation. Continue reading...
