Some protesters here in Montreal talking about fire Fauci during lockdown protests(which are transpiring as the province is legitimately opening up). Like...the idiocy is just astounding.

@brandon That is hilarious. Do they know that he doesn't even work for the Canadian government? Do they know they're not part of the United States?

@nathand @brandon They want Canada to submit applications to join the US, somehow get full statehood quickly, hold special elections for members of Congress, and then impeach Fauci.

@nathand @brandon (Impeachment applies to "the President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States." I believe "Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases" would count as a "civil officer of the United States," so impeachment is possible.)

@alexbuzzbee 🤦‍♂️. Well, if that's the case, then the Quebecois are probably right (this time) in wanting to secede. Strange times.

@nathand @brandon It's a very complicated and improbable plan that I just made up.

@brandon Blind reactionary attitudes combined with getting all their news from American far-right sensationalist disinformation sites.

This is why filter bubbling needs to be illegal. It creates this kind of extreme reaction in people who get all their news from Facebook.
