Over dinner at her favorite Greek restaurant, Denton’s girlfriend of six months dumped him because he’d “grown too fucking right-wing,” as she told him in that low, affectless manner he used to find seductive for whatever reason. (They’d met in 2016 on a pro-Trump dating site.) “Have fun with your alt-Reich buddies,” she said, getting up to leave.
“I will, bitch, ’cause I’m literally Hitler, ha ha,” he said, quoting an alt-right meme that spoofs whiny libtard bullshit by facetiously comparing someone or something to you-know-who. (Denton thought the shrimp Santorini he’d just eaten ranked a little higher than Stalin.)
