RAIN EPLER IS NOW THE NOTEWORTHY FACE AND HAIR OF WHITE SUPREMACY IN ESTONIA POLITICS
It’s hard to keep up with all the developments of white supremacy cum nationalistic fervor in most of the Western world. Neo-Nazi used to be something any country would be appalled at even just 20 years ago. But what’s old is new again, as Nazism, white supremacy, nationalism and general xenophobic racism have almost amalgamated into a new whole that’s impossible to separate. But speaking of what’s old is new again, can we talk about some style judgement? And, uh, the lack of personal shame when it comes to these people? Because this man, Rain Epler, is the face (and HAIR) of white national supremacy in politics in Estonia. Wow. Just, wow.
COULD DONALD TRUMP AND TUCKER CARLSON FANS FIND IT IN THEM TO SUPPORT RAIN EPLER AND HIS HAIR?
His name is Rain Epler. He’s a former government minister from the Estonian nationalist party EKRE. Once you’ve seen him, he’s impossible to forget. He’s recently won an election and is now a member of parliament. Really. Locally in Estonia, his electoral victory has been met with some mixed reactions. Everywhere else, and even as I’m writing this, his winning a parliamentary seat is met with incredulous horror. Or shock? Maybe disbelief? Cause sure, I’m an American. We have the weird pillow guy, Tucker Carlsen, Rudy G, and the list goes on and on. How can I be shocked? Reflex, I suppose.
HOPEFULLY, RAIN EPLER AND HIS HAIR WILL BE INDELIBLY ASSOCIATED WITH WHITE NATIONALISM
And, well, we did have a certain grab’em by the pussy president who is chronically in the news, even now. And literally millions of Americans still seem to love the guy. Or, at least, they like how his vitriol makes them feel normal and empowered. But just imagine if Donald Trump had that Rain Epler hair? As it is, anyone who’s not a Trump fan shudders in disbelief and embarrassment whenever they hear him speak. It’s comedy and should only be satire. But even a Trump fan would be hard pressed to be enthusiastic to vote for a man with that hair. When the emperor has no clothes but only has that hair, it’s hard to avoid it.
So all American tongue in cheek aside, what are Estonians thinking?
