The Ongoing Adventures of The RetCon Men

From Wikipedia:
Retroactive continuity, or retcon for short,[1][2] is a literary device in which established facts in a fictional work are adjusted, ignored, or contradicted by a subsequently published work which breaks continuity with the former.[3]
In the new stuff he added to his book just this year, Rick Wilson gloats a little, reminding his fellow Republicans and future paying clients what a prescient fella he was before the 2018 election:

Forgetting, of course, that Twitter has a memory of its own:
For the record, across the country candidates in that "joke party" ran as Democrats on a wide variety of issues and did, in fact, sweep 40 seats.  I volunteered for one such who came close to winning but could not quite close the gap here in Trump Country.  To my knowledge, she had never heard of Rick Wilson.

Depending on how stupid and wealthy your clients are, pundits and political consultants can make a tidy living by first warning against the coming drought and then, après le déluge, "reminding" everyone how they actually predicted that mighty rain was a'comin'.

So what good luck for Rick that his two natural habitats -- the Beltway media and the Brain Caste of the Republican Party -- are both absolutely flush with stupid and cash.

Behold, a Tip Jar!

I give money to Democrats in red districts because f*ck the GOP every day of the week. They are the party of treason and racism. It's that simple.

Not even the republican voters are fully down with bringing in the republican American Apartheid government.

Government still exists, only with conservative Deep State and so many people and things left to hate and kill.

Because no government means freedom? Somalia seems to be one of the best examples of the goal. A place where you can go. still live out your childhood fantasizes of the freedom to become and live out ones life as a pirate.

It is as living in the zombie apocalypse of the Walking Dead is more desirable than the life they presently lead. That the Zombie apocalypse offers more opportunity for their future?

As Neegan said when he decided to run for president,
" Saviors if your listening".

It was big government that used it's socialism to first take pirates right to bear arms away. Opposed their capitalistic businesses. For what, to make everyone a black Muslim gay terrorist?

Pepe the Frog is a classic example (like they all must be to someone) of retcon, if I understand its meaning correctly. (a "four-captcha" comment.)
