The next story is so crazy, you might not believe it.
The Daily Kos founder, Markos Moulitsas, wrote an article about inciting terrorism being a conservative thing. Conservatives are so desperate to get a war on, they will help terrorists bomb Americans, he claimed. To back up his bizarre statements, he portrayed conservative Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulos as using terrorist, Joshua Goldberg, as a source for Breitbart articles.
The only problem is that none of it is true and as of 9:15 EST, 577 Daily Kos readers shared it on Facebook and another 262 tweeted it.
A lie travels half way around the world while truth is putting on its shoes.
Leftists like Moulitsas are so addicted to their ideology that they will say anything. Moulitsas must have seen his made-up story as a dream story that he would love to see come true, so he printed it anyway. He probably thought that if it didn’t happen, it should have.
Perhaps more will come out but right now Moulitsas looks like a fabricator who just wanted to spew acrimonious invective against conservatives.
It started Friday with an article by The Daily Beast about Joshua Goldberg, a crazed blogger who told a terrorist who to build a bomb so he could launch an attack on 9/11. At the time, Goldberg was posing as a radical Islamist.
At various times, Goldberg pretended to be ISIS, a white supremacist, and a Jewish lawyer.
As ISIS, he was popular on ISIS social media and as a white supremacist, he was popular on the hate site Daily Stormer. He was also a faux feminist on Daily Kos and a radical free-speech advocate on Q&A site. He blogged for other leftist sites.
Goldberg, a recluse, obviously doesn’t have all his oars in the water.
He was arrested on Thursday as a would-be terrorist.
Goldberg was so popular on radical Islamist sites that he was even retweeted by one of the pro-ISIS gunmen who attacked a “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas, last May, according to the FBI.
It gets worse and you can get it all at The Daily Beast.
An interesting side story was initiated by Markos Moulitsas, the founder of Daily Kos and co-founder of Vox Media, both far, far left websites. Daily Kos is blatantly trashy and hate-filled while Vox is more insidious.
Moulitsas tweeted the following:
He wrote an article about terrorism being a conservative thing, claiming that Joshua Goldberg, posing as Vicki Tate, was the source of Breitbart’s outing of Shaun King as a white man posing as a black man, though he tweeted that Goldberg was a writer for Breitbart.
Markos isn’t a very good newsman, because not only wasn’t Goldberg a conservative writer for Breitbart, he was a contributor to The Daily Kos. Shaun King is also jumping in on this but that’s for another article.
The source for the Breitbart exposé on Shaun King was Re-News It, not the terrorist blogger, Joshua Goldberg.
Meanwhile, these far leftists – Moulitsas and King – don’t seem to even care that Goldberg tried to get a terrorist to launch an attack on 9/11.
The Daily Kos article is just awful, irrespective of how this story turns out. I have an excerpt below.
Conservatives like Joshua Goldberg are so desperate to get a war on, they are helping terrorists bomb Americans, Moulitsas wrote.
Remember the guy who went after Shaun King, feeding his information to Breitbart? It was this guy:
[Joshua] Goldberg had several online personas: an Islamic radical who was popular in ISIS social media; a white supremacist on hate site Daily Stormer; a feminist on Daily Kos; a radical free-speech advocate on Q&A site Ask.fm, and a sympathizer with GamerGate. Goldberg is also accused of being behind a Times of Israel blog post that called Palestinians “subhuman.”
Goldberg’s trolling turned serious when he was arrested Thursday by the FBI on the grounds that he told a would-be terrorist how to build a bomb meant for a 9/11 attacks anniversary event in Kansas City, Missouri.It’s clear conservative are fervently praying for another terrorist attack on US soil they could pin on President Barack Obama and Democrats. It’s the only card they have left to play. And now we’re seeing one actively help a would-be terrorist build a real bomb, to kill real Americans, in a real American city.
And for what? So they can get their war on, one that kills thousands more Americans (not to mention countless innocent civilians)?
“That’s modern conservatism for you, sick and corrupted, and it’s no surprise that Breitbart is in the middle of it, catering to that very crowd,” Moulitsas bizarrely concluded. Oddly, the selection he chose notes that Goldberg was a feminist writer for The Daily Kos.
There is more and while I won’t link to that hate-spewing piece, you can google it if you must. The added irony is that Shaun King is a faux black person. The story was true, but Goldberg got the information from the same source Breitbart got it – Re-News It.
This should put an end to him and his website but that would be in a normal world which we aren’t in right now. This alternative universe we currently live in will believe him anyway.
