Just in time for Halloween, we have the denouement of a somewhat bizarre story that I have followed for a while in fractured fashion, through tweets from a sometimes private, to reduce the chance of giving herself away, Twitter account. It's the story of a woman who, unable to make a living because of the pandemic, decided to live for a year in the very heart of MAGAland. Just about a month short of her goal, and concerned about being doxxed, she revealed herself to the internet:
Hey everyone. My name is Amanda, and I have been undercover as a MAGA since the 2020 November Stop the Steal Rally in Washington, DC. pic.twitter.com/Glg1qiL4oI— amanda, or frank the turtle (@the_cancel_mob) October 24, 2021
It's a fascinating, darkly humorous tale of an intrepid investigator who put her health and well-being at risk hanging out, recording scumbags. I'm hoping for a book and/or a documentary covering her expedition into the sewers of American culture, and will be among the first in line to purchase it. Check out her Twitter feed, it's a fascinating mix of revelations about MAGA and QAnon (are they even separate anymore) whackaloons and hilarious cries from butthurt trolls who are attacking her.
I sure hope she has decent security where she lives, because she must be protected at all costs.
