Suppose they gave a civil war and nobody came?
As you will recall, a YouTube conspiratard made a lot of money "predicting" that a new civil war would start on Saturday. The right-wing imagination transformed a proposed protest by the Revolutionary Communist Party (a small group of clowns who've been clowning around since my college days) into the launch of a nationwide attack by the dreaded, monstrous, conspiratorial powerhouse known as ANTIFA, which the rightists describe as a cross between the Red Army, SPECTRE and the Mau Mau rebellion. Any minute now, they'll burst into your house and shoot everyone including your grandmother and your dog and your fish and your fish's grandmother...
It didn't happen.
But the conspiratard who predicted all of this in a YouTube video earned a Lamborghini for his efforts.
Established liberal voices on Youtube -- people like Sam Seder and David Pakman -- don't get expensive sports cars tossed at them. In fact, they're struggling to pay the light bill, thanks to the YouTube adpocalypse. The same problem affects lots of other YouTubers, including the cute girl who tells scary stories
. If you want the damned car, you gotta deceive for the Don.
On a related note Glenn Greenwald
, traitor extraordinaire, has written a long piece defending Donna Brazile, that other
traitor extraordinaire. It's filled with lies and half-lies, most of which we have discussed in previous posts. (Here's some truth
to wash out the taste of Greenwald's filth.) The simple fact is that Brazile's allegedly-damning "agreement" does not exist -- and her claims about Hillary's health reveals that Donna is willing to spew Roger Stonian bullshit.
(Am I the only one who recalls that a bad flu hit a lot
of people on Team Clinton at that time? I found this suspicious.)
Many are asking: Why'd Donna do it? Why is Greenwald doing it?
The answer should be obvious. On that side of the aisle, they're handing out Lamborghinis.
(PS: I can no longer recommend the Twitter account which presented parody excerpts of Dirty Donna's new book. Trolls and Clintonphobes took over the place.)
