‘Sex Blimps’ & ‘Abolish Lasagna’: Senator Ernst’s ‘Liberal Fantasy Island’ Display Savaged Online

The original poster board used by Senator Ernst, which became photoshopped online, spawning the viral hashtag in question, was titled “Liberal Fantasy Island” and featured slogans such as “tax increase”, “defund the police” and “expand the court”.

US Republican Senator Joni Ernst has become a target of mockery on social media following her Wednesday address to the Senate where she criticised “the policies of the left”, as The Hill put it, ahead of US President Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress.

During her speech, the senator used a poster board titled “Liberal Fantasy Island” and bearing slogans such as “tax increase”, “defund the police” and “expand the court”, with this display apparently hijacked by online satirists.
