These are harmless kids engaged in harmless skylarking. So harmless, they even tagged AOC in their initial posts. But they underestimated AOC’s mirthless self-importance and the punitive nature of her followers.
Because the boys happened to be wearing “Team Mitch” T-shirts, she grabbed the opportunity to roast Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. As a result, the photos went viral and these Kentucky high-schoolers have been doxxed online, their names and school widely publicized.
You know what that means. Now there is a target on their backs. Unhinged trolls are doing their best to make their young lives a misery, to blacken the reputation of their school, and destroy their future prospects.
In reality, the boys’ crime is not that they were fooling around with a cardboard cutout. It’s that they dared to support a Republican politician. It’s that they dare to attend a Christian school. In the identitarian left’s corrosive hierarchy of victimhood, young, white, conservative Christian males are public enemy number one and must be destroyed.
