What is it about Rightwing Killbots Named “Ben”?


Who write propaganda for skeevy foreign interests?

From this morning:
Which puts your's truly in mind of Ben Domenech's relentless climb to media celebrity and respectability despite the fact that he merits neither: 
Believe it or not, his climb back up the mountain of respectability wasn’t without further stumbles. In 2013, Domenech swan-dived back into hot water after it was revealed he took $36,000 from a lobbyist to write propaganda for the government of Malaysia. Those pieces, written for a number of publications, including the Washington Times and Huffington Post, were subsequently removed and added to the remarkably expansive graveyard of Domenech retractions.
Since fifty years of failure, corruption and devolution has shown the Conservative ideology to be a hollow, bankrupt sham, it makes perfect sense that the intellectual vanguard coming out of the movement's whelping boxes these days would be a "spindly, ricket-ridden, milky, wizened, dim-eyed, gammy-handed, limpy line of things".


And yet it has clearly been decided high up and far away that the Right shall be given a wildly disproportionate claim on the public square no matter how deep into bared-fanged lunacy they descend.


Behold, a Tip Jar!
