I’d definitely class myself as a liberal; I mean I actually think I hold moderate political views – technically making me a centrist – but I would still say that I lean to the left on most issues.
Now, with that in mind, let me bring to your attention Turning Point UK, a right-wing, originally American student movement for “free markets, limited government and public responsibility” which has been classed by the Southern Poverty Law Centre as being “white supremacists”. The conservative project has the backing of people like Nigel Farage and Jacob Rees-Mogg which should tell you everything you need to know about why I disagree with almost everything they say.
Anyway, the group recently launched their Twitter account to remind young people that they can be right wing too and its essentially been sabotaged by people who have criticised its posh-faced members and cringey slogans.
Shortly after the video dropped, a bunch of spoof accounts shot up at the same time, all claiming to be Turning Point UK and they’ve memed the hell out of them.

As I say they’re pretty much the butt of everyone’s joke and they’re really not handling it too well at all.
But at least they have brought the left together to collectively rinse the hell out of them.
This guy says it best:
They really do bring it on themselves.
