I monitor Rumble almost as much as Telegram these days because it has emerged as one of the largest and most harmful Russian propaganda distribution hubs on the planet.
Rumble was a small, relatively obscure little video site that mostly delivered anodyne pet videos. Here was the “Editor’s Picks” in March 2017:
Here they were in 2020:
Then in early 2021, psychopathic accelerationist billionaire Peter Thiel invested in Rumble — along with neo-fascist android J.D. “Hillbilly” Vance.
And here are the “Editor’s Picks” right now. Discerning readers may notice a slight change 🙄:
Mike Flynn funder and insurrection planner Mike Lindell.
QAnon channel “Edge of Wonder.”
Anti-vax propaganda with compromised shithead Dr. Drew
The Dershow with Trump’s favorite lawyer Alan “Kept my undies on” Dershowitz
Men’s rights activist and abusive monster Andrew Tate
“Revenge of the Cis” which is devoted to making fun of LGBTQ+ people
Catturd — Oh look they still have pet videos! 😂
Regardless, the despicable Canadian asshat who runs Rumble, Chris Pavloski, is super proud of his “achievement” of enriching himself by transforming his cat video website into a trap for Russian psychological warfare using Peter Thiel’s blood money.
Here’s your golf clap, Chris. 🖕
Anyway, the video above is a primal scream at the idiot who runs Cantor Fitzgerald, which is the brokerage that is going to take Rumble public, Howard Lutnick. Turns out Howard is a big fan of Russell Brand, which pretty much explains everything I guess.
Seriously, Howard, providing billions of dollars to this insane psyop — that is literally only in existence to brainwash people into neo-fascist ideology — is a thing that should never happen in a functioning democracy. But you don’t care do you, Howard? You’re only in it for the blood money.
Fuck all of these people. And Rumble. Into the Sun. ☀️
