The Last Time I Saw John Fund…


...he was skulking around the Netroots' conference room level of the Minneapolis Convention Center trailing eager-beaver, 3rd tier wingnut Warren Todd Huston --



-- like some latter-day, Randite George and Lennie from "Of Mice and Men".

It was (as I wrote at the time) a stark and pathetic reminder of the fundamentally peevish and parasitic nature of the Right that they would build an entire movement and schedule entire conferences around the act of hating people like me.

That they would shadow us from city to city just to do so.

That the barrenness of their ideological cupboard is now so complete that a Wall Street Journal douchbag from New York and a mid-level wingnut talking point Pez dispenser from Chicago would travel all the way to Minnesota just to slink around among the happy energetic Liberals to grub for crumbs of incipient socialism About Which They Can Be Loudly Outraged, and crib notes about what panels the Dirty Fucking Hippies had put together to destroy America.

So what is John Fund doing these days?

Trying to win  The National Review Buzzword House Cup for packing as many wingnut-approved trigger-words into his scalding burn of Libtard activists.

Let's count them together shall we?

Who Was behind the Flake Set-Up?

ACORN’s tactics live on in the senator’s elevator confrontation with activists from a Soros-backed group.

The Center is a left-wing group that is heavily funded by George Soros’s Open Society Foundations...

Archila has another role beyond her duties as co–executive director of the Center. She is also a member of the national committee of the Working Families Party (WFP), a New York–based fringe political party...

The WFP was founded in 1998 by the leaders of ACORN, the now disbanded and disgraced group of community organizers for whom Barack Obama served as a lawyer, in Chicago in the 1990s...

ACORN was one of the most disreputable, amoral, and sleazy groups every to darken American democracy...

In 2009, ACORN finally ran off the rails. Guerrilla videographer James O’Keefe secretly recorded...

It’s a sign of media bias that the people from the well-funded groups behind the anti-Kavanaugh protests...

Points off for not squeezing in Saul Alinsky, the New Black Panthers or Benghaaaazi, but a solid "B+" to Mr. Fund: a grown adult human being who, every time he puts pen to paper, demonstrates just exactly how ridiculously easy it is for any pervert who knows the wingnut codex to make a very fine living troweling out this kind of brown-shirt Mad-Lib grab-bag bullshit as "news".

And, like every other professional Conservative Big Thinker, the fact that is has also poisoned our democracy almost beyond the point of no return obviously does not trouble Mr. Fund one little bit.


Behold, a Tip Jar!
