Charlie Kirk's Culture War, Groypers, Nickers and Q&A-trolling

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

Since mid-October, Charlie Kirk’s Culture War college tour has been increasingly haunted by the Groyper and nicker Groyper Q&A trolls. These offline trolls use the Q&A-sessions that are part of the Culture War show format to frame Charlie Kirk as a fake, 'anti-white' conservative. A new chapter in the alt-right's cultural war re-emerges in full force.
