While it’s common knowledge that the pro-Trump far-right has a less-than-stellar record when it comes to disseminating facts, it’s not every day you see one of its members outright admit that propagating falsehoods is part of the strategy.
Enter Brenden Dilley, who has a new mantra: “It doesn’t have to be true; it just has to go viral.”
Speaking on The Dilley Show this Friday, Dilley informed his listeners in Trumplandia that it’s not their responsibility “to correct fake news against your enemies.”
“That’s the f***ing left’s responsibility,” he said in a video clip flagged by Right Wing Watch. “Some of you guys don’t get this, you don’t know how to fight, you’re busy being virtue-signaling d*ckwads.”
“‘Dilley, why’d you do the fake news about Liz Warren and the mammie pot?’ Because f*** Elizabeth Warren, that’s why,” he continued, referring to a debunked claim that the Democratic presidential candidate had a racist figurine in her kitchen. “I’ve told all of you — it doesn’t have to be true; it just has to go viral. And I stand by that statement when it comes to our enemies.”
He went on to say that if someone were to accuse US Women’s Soccer star Megan Rapinoe of being a Satan worshipper, it doesn’t matter if it’s true or not.
“You think I know whether Megan Rapinoe is actually a Satan-worshiper? Of course not. I have no idea, he said, adding that “it doesn’t f***ing matter to me.”
“That dirty piece of sh** is a horrible representation of the United States of America and our values and if all I’ve got to do is link together a couple of f***ing things that make her look like a Satanist to take some shine off that b****’s moment, I’ll do it every time.”
According to Dilley, speaking fake news is part of knowing “how to fight.”
“And a lot of you don’t have the f***ing guts to do what I am doing because, frankly, you are probably better people than I am.”
