Andrew Sullivan is a vocal opponent of Donald Trump, but maybe all he really disapproves of is the president's fondness for Big Macs. Like David Frum, he mostly agrees with Trump on his signature issue, immigration. Both Frum and Sullivan are themselves immigrants but the white kind that ensures cultural stability in a nation that has technically always been multicultural. Last year, Sullivan wrote a piece for New York Magazine explaining why we should start worrying and love WALL. This month, Sullivan again called for WALL because it would give white people a sense of security like a racist child's blanket. He also wants to limit immigration, specifically from brown people too rude to ask true Americans if they mind further dilution of the nation's white potency.

Sullivan has been a not-so-stealth white supremacist for as long as black people have been disappointed to discover copies of "The Bell Curve" on their white friends' bookshelves. Still, he took it all to next-level grossness during his appearance Tuesday night on "Hardball with Chris Matthews." Sullivan and former RNC chair Michael Steele were discussing how Trump would run for re-election on a platform of bald-faced lies about Democrats. Then Zerlina Maxwell had the audacity to make words with her black lady mouth.

MAXWELL: In part this is the result of -- if you read Malcolm Nance's book,"The Plot to Destroy Democracy," it goes through the chronology--

SULLIVAN: (laughing) Jesus, Lord. You recommending that guy?

Yes, this racist misogynistic fuck laughed at Maxwell for the offense of citing the work of a respected counter-terrorism analyst. Sure, Nance is black and all but Amazon still sells his books; they're printed on real paper. Also, if Sullivan had the manners of a jackal, he could've let Maxwell finish her sentence and then responded to her opinion on its merits. Instead he just talks over her.

Maxwell doesn't lose her cool, because she's a black woman and there are laws against that sort of thing. Matthews apparently had no idea who Nance was, even though Nance is a regular guest on MSNBC shows, including his own. Now ignoring Maxwell while simultaneously lecturing her, Sullivan describes Nance to Matthews as a "fantasist" who spouts nothing but "conspiracy theories" and "nonsense."

MAXWELL: I just wanted to articulate the point I was making, which is that [Nance] ties it historically to the rise of white nationalism throughout Europe, and that is something that is tied to the debate over immigration.

SULLIVAN: Of course it is. It is being created by mass immigration. You either have to choose between mass immigration or liberal democracy. You can't have both.

Maxwell -- our new favorite person -- literally rocked her head in disbelief at Sullivan's absurdly racist argument. Does Sullivan believe "liberal democracy" impossible unless there's a white majority? Can liberal democracy only thrive at Taylor Swift concerts?

The whole point of Nance's "The Plot to Destroy Democracy" is that Vladimir Putin seeks to use white nationalism to dismantle liberal democracy in the western world. He specifically exploited America's cultural and racial divisions during the 2016 presidential campaign. Sullivan's "solution" is to lock America's doors and make the country whiter, which any sensible person could tell you won't make the nation more "liberal." You'd end up with a more authoritarian and theocratic country. That's the white nationalist Disney World.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.

Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
