Another day, another ******* idiot who writes little🐎💩 stories fishing for a popular angle to antagonize the masses against Bitcoin. https://www.thedailybeast.com/how-the-worlds-far-right-bitcoin-fanatics-could-royally-screw-you
That's what this is you know, all the "terror/drugs/laundering/mafia/pollution/ponzi" blabla claims they are making regarding Crypto, is basically them desperately searching for a particular criteria which the masses finally reacts upon, and boom, that's it, that will be their strategy to divert people away from Bitcoin. So this particular little boy here is trying a rather new angle; Bitcoin = Alt-Right/Trump.
First off regarding the El Salvador-Trump claims the author is making, I'll just leave this quote here he once made regarding the nation “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here"
This was staggeringly enough also reported by that same Daily Beast. Guess someone didn't do his homework ;) https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-wants-less-shthole-immigrants-more-norwegians
"Bukele is in many ways an acolyte of Donald Trump, who had constantly stoked his base with musings on Twitter and seems to disdain democracy in favor of his own autocratic rule."
So people Tweeting to their followers about their political obsessions is undemocratic? Has our mans here been in a coma the past 5 years? Just go on Twitter's advanced search and type in the key words "Russia Trump" from certain political figures such as Pelosi, Clinton, McCain and enjoy the show.
"Countries like Venezuela and the Bahamas have already adopted cryptocurrencies"
Right off the bat, the 2 other examples he mentions are neither far-right nor in any way friendly with Trump.
“Several months before Bukele announced his plans, Viktor Orban also announced plans to use bitcoin tax cuts as part of an attempt at revitalizing the Hungarian economy,”
Ok, so he found 1 other country in the world with a right-wing government doing something on a national level with Bitcoin. Does it gets balanced out if I present a left-wing government who made Bitcoin illegal? https://www.coindesk.com/markets/2014/06/19/bolivias-central-bank-bans-bitcoin/
Just throw this whole "right/left" angle you're trying here away please, it absolutely holds no water and is downright embarrassing.
"A bit closer to home, said Heinz, we have our very own far-right bitcoin enthusiasts in the Republican Party. Miami's Republican Mayor Francis Suarez is interested in paying city employees with bitcoin"
"That’s because “the decentralized, peer-to-peer, crypto-currency has obvious appeal to hate group leaders and other influential extremists: No company and no government can intervene to stop the donations from flowing"
Oh, you mean like how they intervened to cut off WikiLeaks which switched to Crypto after MasterCard, PayPal, Visa etc cut Julian Assange and all of WikiLeaks off from receiving any donations world-wide? Yeah, there's an "Alt-Right donation" example if I ever saw one. https://www.rt.com/news/wikileaks-killed-payment-ban-583/
"Bitcoin is aimed directly at weakening public control over the economy”
No, it's directly aimed at empowering the public and prevent happening to them, what once happened to Assange or WikiLeaks, end of story, end of your flawed arguments.
