As we previously reported, the gnashing of teeth and the popcorn-worthy temper tantrums have commenced rapid-fire in Never Trump LaLa Land over scattered speculation mostly in Republican circles that perhaps former President Donald Trump won’t have the same luck in his 2024 presidential bid as he did in 2016.
Among those who are wailing and gesturing wildly over the possibility has been Rick Wilson of Lincoln Project infamy, who as we all know at this point has unquestionably turned being an unapologetic sellout/fraudster into an art form in ways that will be analyzed for years to come.
Undoubtedly because of uncertainty over Trump’s political future and the once-lucrative gravy train potentially coming to a screeching halt, Wilson has moved on to his latest grift according to tweets that he’s periodically posted to his account in recent days about something called “Resolute Square,” which Wilson claims is “a media enterprise solely dedicated to defending democracy and attacking those who would like to see it die. And starting for just $5 a month, you can help it grow.”
Wilson was immediately mocked over the transparently obvious ploy by, among others, the DC Examiner’s Byron York.
“You can defend democracy for the low, low price of $5 a month! And for just $10 a month, you can defend democracy even more, plus get great defending democracy swag! And for $250 a year, you can be a super duper defender of democracy, with super special swag! Join today!” York tweeted in response.
For those who are curious, yes the “super special swag” York mentioned is actually a thing:

Others were quick to point out that The Usual Suspects on the “show me da money” grifter circuit never change:

Some quipped about what Wilson’s “target audience” would be, a not-so-veiled reference to the disgraced Lincoln Project’s shameful cover-up of the disturbing scandal involving fellow co-founder John Weaver, who was reportedly trying to groom young men, some allegedly underage at the time, behind the scenes while Lincoln Project higher-ups looked the other way as the cash flowed in primarily from super-rich, self-important Democrats who detested Trump:

Whether it’s kids who are the target audience or people who enjoy carrying around Confederate-themed coolers on summertime trips to the lake as much as Wilson does, one thing is an absolute certainty in all of this: If someone is gullible enough to pay their hard-earned money for the absolute cringe that Wilson delivers online every day for free, they might want to think twice about getting on social media to complain about it later. Because in the end, just like it is when one seeks out a lady of the night, it’s pretty obvious that you’re, um … just getting what you paid for.
