What's hilariously ironic is that our problem immigrants are Eugine's sockpuppets, when Eugine is NRx and anti-immigrant.

That Eugine is so much of a problem is actually evidence in favour of some of his politics.

And when the dictator stops Eugine, it will also prove that Cthulhu always swims left.

(Meanwhile, in a different tribe: "So, they have a dictator now, and of course it's a white male. That validates our beliefs!")

Meanwhile, in a different tribe

Don't forget that Cthulhu is a white male :-P

(race/sex are social constructs, aren't they? Cthulhu is definitely not one of oppressed minorities so there you go)
