Pointing out that someone is using memes common in the alt-right circle of the internet because they're common in the alt-right circle of the internet isn't "falling right into it", the only people being japed are those insisting that any sort of analysis is just someone being...

Stream ended with over $340k raised, and I'm pretty sure that doesn't include subs & bits, only direct donations, so it's likely the total he raised was a lot more than that. That's over half the £500k that people were wanting the lottery fund to not give, so I'd say it was p...
