Thing about populism is, once you start down that road you quickly find yourself jumping more and more sharks:
Pitchfork - Thor Harris says he's running for Governor of Texas. Quote:
Thor Harris—frontman for Thor & Friends, and former member of Swans and Shearwater—said today that he wants to run for governor of Texas.
Wait, what? Former member of Swans? This Swans?
OK, I'm in!
Standing in front of a rainbow flag, he explained his reasoning. “Howdy, my name’s Thor Harris, and I’m running for governor of Texas, ’cause fuck this.”
I find his political viewpoint intriguing and would definitely subscribe to his newsletter.
When asked if he’s really planning to run, Harris responded to Pitchfork, “Why the fuck not?
Again, that's a far better reason to run than most.
In February, Harris was suspended from Twitter after he posted a joking tutorial about how to punch Nazis. His how-to followed the viral video of alt-right activist Richard Spencer getting punched in the head on Inauguration Day.
OK, so he's definitely not a Republican. If he was a Republican, he'd have posted a video about how he loves sucking Nazi cock, instead of a video about punching them FFS I mean that'd mean punching Strom Thurmond or something.
So, I hereby support Thor's run for governorship of Texas. #1, I'd like to see how deep the populist rabbithole can go, and #2, apparently the Democrats are such fucking sissies that they're not even going to contest the governorship, because that would mean talking to American citizens, and they gave that up decades ago. So we may as well have someone contesting the governorship.
