Wilson - a rabid neocon and Russia conspiracy theorist who ridiculed Trump supporters as illiterate rednecks, suggested putting anti-vaxxers in "re-education camps," and once asked pundit Ann Coulter if Trump 'pays her more for anal' - owned himself earlier this week when he tried to 'cancel' Domino's Pizza over a PR Twitter exchange the company had with White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany in 2012.
Dominoes responded: "Welp. It's unfortunate that thanking a customer for a compliment back in 2012 would be viewed as political. Guess that's 2020 for ya."
So after Rick delved into ancient tweets to play 'cancel' with Dominoes, conservative voice Caleb Hull did a little digging on his own - and found a 2014 Instagram photo Wilson posted of his family on a boat, featuring a confederate flag ice chest.
Hull was promptly blocked:
HAHA he blocked me after this pic.twitter.com/juXBJy8FeO— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) June 16, 2020
Hull then discovered that Wilson's wife also posted the chest - which reads "The South Will Rise Again" on top.
“THE SOUTH WILL RISE AGAIN” is what the cooler says on the top. Great work @MSNBC this is your hero.— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) June 16, 2020
When asked for comment, Wilson's wife Molly responded "Fuck off."
Hi @TheRickWilson, I know you’re desperately deleting pictures of your confederate “THE SOUTH WITH RISE AGAIN” cooler you have, but it looks like you missed one.— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) June 16, 2020
That thing goes everywhere with you, huh? pic.twitter.com/LjxRP6jt2Y
Molly then 'rage DMed' Hull and lied - claiming the photo of the cooler was fake. She then claimed that the cooler never belonged to them, and suggested that it was her son's.
OH, YOU THOUGHT THIS SAGA WAS OVER? NOPEEEEE— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) June 17, 2020
Rick Wilson’s wife continued to DM me then admitting that the photo of the confederate cooler was *NOT* fake as she previously claimed.
After I responded, she blocked me. 🙃 pic.twitter.com/ew53fsBBsN
And now Molly's racist tweets have surfaced:
Hey @TheRickWilson - Do you and your wife usually use the term "negro" to describe black Americans? Perhaps while sitting on your "South Will Rise Again" confederate flag cooler?— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 17, 2020

She's also got no problem attacking President Trump's son, Barron:
I don’t like bringing spouses / families into political warfare. However, since @TheRickWilson’s white trash wife went after Barron Trump, her racist & homophobic ass is fair game. pic.twitter.com/c8BKGE2G9h— Arthur Schwartz (@ArthurSchwartz) June 17, 2020

For what it's worth, Rick and Molly seem like a great match.

With @TheRickWilson trending, I figured it would be a good time to take a trip down memory lane about his bad takes.
You know about his Biden jabs (below) but the wrongs just keep on coming... pic.twitter.com/rdrOtWceKB
