Trump supporters thought fake ‘Resistance Radio’ PR campaign was real, and they’re furious

When Amazon announced “Resistance Radio” as the soundtrack to a new series, Trump supporters didn’t even bother to click before getting pissed.

Had they bothered to do research before taking to Twitter, they would have learned that “Resistance Radio” is simply a PR campaign for the Amazon series “The Man in the High Castle,” which is adapted from a Philip K. Dick novel. Amazon paid for the hashtag #ResistanceRadio to be a top trending hashtag.

The concept of the show is that America lost World War II, and now had to contend with the Nazi regime in Europe and the Japanese Pacific States in Asia. The radio program is actually just a concept show of rogue DJs hijacking frequencies to talk about Hitler’s Third Reich and how horrible Nazis were.

Obviously, Twitter spared no mockery for conservatives on Twitter having a nervous breakdown over a TV drama about Nazis.
