What blows my mind about these fly-by-night e-celebs who rose to popularity by backing Trump early and riding his wave is how they seem to not actually get this populist movement. This is not a SJW movement based on loyalty to people, it is a movement based on loyalty to ideas. In contrast to the left, the right actually has a consistent, well thought out ideology that is understood by its members. This makes it easy for us to quickly accept and later reject e-celebs as we are not a cult of personality but an idelogical movement.

Correct. This is why I never understand the criticism of people by labeling them "ideologues".

If someone is committed to the soundness of their ideas rather than to ever-shifting personalities, isn't that integrity, remaining consistent in their thinking and sticking to their values?
