Because Lincoln was all for online rage mobs

Back in 2012, a twenty-year-old named Kayleigh McEnany tweeted her love of Domino’s Pizza.  And Domino’s had the unmitigated gall to interact with her.

Here’s the offending exchange, again, from nearly eight years ago:

Oh, dear!  How awful!  This, well, this just cannot stand!

And because he has nothing constructive to contribute to our civic life, “Lincoln Project” co-founder Rick Wilson displayed some of those principles Lincoln was famous for by sending a rage mob after Domino’s Pizza for not knowing that the young woman they were thanking would eight years later become President Trump’s press secretary.

I wish I was joking.  But I’m not.

“Just” killed your brand … over an eight-year-old tweet. What a dick.

You understand why I said ideological bigotry, not racism, is what’s systemic in this country? Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson believes Domino’s Pizza should be killed because a future press secretary who does not align with the Left’s ideology likes their pizza, and said so in 2012. That’s ideological bigotry in action.

And, it screams the Principles of Lincoln, doesn’t it?

Yup.  If there is one think good old Abe Lincoln stood for, it was unleashing an unhinged mob of Trump-deranged fanatics on Domino’s Pizza for an eight-year-old tweet.

You know, I bet Kayleigh McEnany eats other things too. In fact, I bet she was eating food back in 2012. Maybe all these lunatics Rick Wilson is desperate to please should just stop eating entirely. You know, just to have their bases covered.

That’s what Lincoln would do!

The Lincoln Project wants to defeat President Trump because, unlike them, Trump is super divisive and he sends mean tweets.  And how are they going to defeat him?  By attacking Domino’s Pizza for a tweet from 2012 thanking someone for liking their pizza!


I wonder if Lincoln can sue these guys for crapping all over his name.

Speaking of killing a brand: When your founding members are hate-filled shit-posters who gin up the outrage mob over an innocuous 8-year-old tweet, your brand isn’t being killed, your brand was dead on arrival.

Now, I don’t know if Rick Wilson is just the dumbest, most bitter man to ever walk the earth, or if it’s that he’s just so hungry for love from people who hate Lincoln as much as they hate Trump.  Whatever the case, if you consider yourself a Republican and you’re donating to his misnamed Lincoln Project, maybe you should slap yourself silly and get a friggin’ clue.

    What Kayleigh needs to tweet is how much she like Starbucks, and Nike, and Target, and any of the other really woke companies. Then see what that and the other anti-fascist fascists do.

    Who is rick wilson and who cares what he thinks.

      While I am sure you are doing the “who is this person and who cares” shtick at an attempt at humor, it is just this kind of dismissive attitude that brought us to this situation. For years, we were willing to dismiss people who foment outrage over people they disagree with. And now those assholes are trying to destroy people on a daily basis … over old tweets. Who is Rick Wilson? He’s the fuck-stick who regularly feeds the outrage mob, turning them loose on his political opponents seeking to destroy them. So you’ll forgive me if I don’t yuck it up over your lame ass misfire of a joke. We’ve dismissed these people long enough. We need to fight back because trust me, they will come for me; they will come for you. They will come for all of us who don’t fall in lockstep with them. And they’re not just satisfied with hurling words like “racist” at us anymore. Now they want to deprive us of our jobs and our safety.

      Who cares? I do. And if you had any sense, you’d care too.

        Wow that hit a nerve. I don’t know who Rick Wilson is and I also don’t care what he thinks. When I vote I vote for the people who want to help this country. A wise man once told me back in the early nineties that the internet was the Antichrist. Think about that for a minute. Voting is the only way to stop the madness and do I really need social media, Nope.

          A man was driving in his work truck with his hand out the window. A woman driving next to him took a picture of him because, according to her, he was making the so-called “White Power” symbol. She post the picture on Twitter and he was fired from his job. Does this touch a nerve for you? Maybe it’s different if you know someone whose life is utterly destroyed by the outrage mob. This kind of shit definitely touches a nerve for me. Frankly, the fact that it doesn’t piss you off that people think nothing of ruining a person’s job, career, and livelihood by shaming them on social media makes me wonder what hole you’ve had your head stuck in. You don’t do social media? Great! Who’s to say some idiot who does use social media doesn’t cross paths with you one day and totally derails your life? At least then, maybe it will touch a nerve for you too.

            I have no idea what your talking about. Where I am living in a diverse community, in Texas my life is fine. You cannot get blood from a turnip. I lead a simple life and if someone decides to ruin my life so be it. I’m sorry that you are experiencing hatred from the left. I’m on your side or I wouldn’t donate a small pittance to you cause.

            I recommend you read some posts at I hear she writes about this kind of thing all the time. Ideological bigotry, “cancel culture,” you know, stuff about the virulent, hateful Left trying to silence people on the Right. In fact, she did several posts about a Kentucky teenager who was attacked, vilified and slandered just for smiling at some asshole beating a drum in his face.

            Goodnight Dianny from a reader of posts at Patriot Retort dot com for 2 years now. Have a happier tomorrow.

        A little harsh, but I understand where you’re coming from. The right needs to fight fire with fire.

      • June 18, 2020 at 9:29 pm

        Thanks for clarifying who that idiot is. I hadn’t heard of him either until reading your article. I’ll be on the lookout, and will put the proverbial ‘boot up his ass’ if I run across him.

    “Who is Rick Wilson? He’s the fuck-stick who regularly feeds the outrage mob, turning them loose on his political opponents seeking to destroy them.”

    BOOM! There it is! Give ’em hell, Dianny!

    Just gotta say-I LOVE Patriotretort!!! You are the first thing I read every day! Keep doing what you’re doing-wish I could hit the tip jar-will when I can-you speak my mind every single post! THANK YOU!!!

    I liked the “slap yourself silly and get a friggin clue line”, priceless!! I was forced to retire from my job of 31 years in 2018, Now I realize that probably was a blessing in disguise because my former employer has become so obsessively PC and beholden to the twitter mob that I would have been fired by now for some personal opinion or maube even because I voted for Trump and plan too again.

    What kind of life do you you lead, for entertainment you seek out years gone by to self-destruct, in the quest of “being the most woke”?
    This dude is seriously sad.
