The Conservative Political Action Conference was truly bizarre this year, and that's saying something considering it's always been outlandish, but this year was special. It seemed almost fitting that Hungary's authoritarian-leaning Prime Minister Viktor Orbán headlined the QPAC event in Dallas.

Another bizarro moment was when Brandon Straka from the 'Walk Away' campaign was featured in a fake jail cell, barefoot in an orange jumpsuit and red MAGA cap, sobbing while controversial Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene consoled the Jan. 6 defendant as onlookers took photos, and one man prayed over them.

I sh*t you not:

Well, the whole thing got off to a weird start anyway when the QPAC announcer said over the mic, "Ladies and gentlemen, we are all domestic terrorists," and a few cheers could be heard in the background.

She's right. When your guy loses an election, but his massive narcissistic public injury was so overwhelming that he was incapable of accepting defeat, so he incited a deadly insurrection, you are domestic terrorists. That is not the United States of America, and you don't get to overturn the government and expect to be accepted by the rest of us.

Marge and Straka can cry all the MAGA tears they want, but they do support domestic terrorism.

Can you help us out?
