Back in June '021 I tweeted that crypto Twitter was praising El Salvador's President Nayib Bukele for buying Bitcoin, while ignoring the fact that he's a brutal dictator.

Now the right is praising him, he's their darling.

El Salvador’s Dictator Is a Darling of the American Right. He Shouldn’t Be.
Untroubled by Nayib Bukele’s dismantling of democracy, they praise him for his toughness.

It's shocking that so many in our country praise such a terrible human being. It's their right, for sure. But it's also our right to stand against them and for what we believe in. Here's to hoping that's happening - en masse. And that we outnumber them by far.
