This morning my podcast producer sent me a frantic text that included a screenshot.

Before we move forward it’s important to know a couple of things about my producer.

He is Black. He leans center-right politically. He owns his own broadcast station and welcomes all points of views. On his Facebook page he often hosts chats and threads inviting people of all political stripes to weigh in on issues of the day. He has friends from the left and the right who post and they talk about everything under the sun.

What he is NOT is extreme. In no way, shape or form. He discusses issues and hears people out, but he is an average American running his own business. In no way is this a person I would label as extreme in anything, except perhaps his pursuit of personal success.

So when I received a text from him this morning with this screenshot, I was disturbed to say the least.

“Yo, what the F*** is this??? This just popped up on my Facebook page. What the f***?”

My producer says it popped up twice this very morning.

I immediately posted the image to Twitter and the reaction was swift. Many people responded that they were just seeing the messages for the first time but seeing them repeatedly. Notably they were all people who identify as conservative voters.

As a matter of fact, I just got this a few minutes ago. pic.twitter.com/0tyIs3IbJI

The warning comes with a link to a “support” group called Life After Hate. This group claims to help Americans leave their hateful ideology. And what might that hateful ideology be? If you haven’t already guessed, here is
