You can examine the particulars your own selves, but what it boils down to is an accusation that "grass-roots conservatives" are being ripped off by shady PACs who collect donations from the rubes, but then "line their own pockets" and don't spend any money on getting crazy far-right idiots elected.
Well, yeah, I guess that happens.
But the question is: so?
What conservative "media organization" isn't a scam?
I mean, holy shit, this is coming from Right-Wing News, one of dozens of pretty the exact same wingnut sites featuring the exact same gibberish from the exact same authors collecting checks for the exact same rubbish cant. The American Thinker? Townhall? Big Dead Breitbart? The Fuckulist? The Daily Crawler (half cuckoo political smears, half tit-gazing?). And The Grand-daddy, the ghastly NewsMax (which is straight-up a platform for fraud*)?
None of these places, nor their smelly likenesses, commits anything like journalism, or do anything other than feed the mindless maw of outraged anger that is Conservatism and the garbage-demons who get paid to stoke the hate.
Cite: John Fucking Hawkins' own fucking article:
Additionally, for those of us who have a lot of friends in the Tea Party and among grassroots conservatives, stories of abuse have become rampant. That may be why you’ve heard people like Ann Coulter and Dana Loesch publicly suggesting that there are groups out there ripping people off.
I put that shit in boldfaced red because it is my point exactly.
Ann Coulter and Dana Loesch are bitching about how their rubes are getting gouged by other rubes.
That they may be nuts enough to be sincere is of no nohow.
In more Comedy Pile-on, here is someone else with the High Dudgeon about the Fleecing of the Lambs:
I’ve been saying for a while now that too many scammers and opportunists have been taking advantage of the Tea Party and conservative grassroots.
That's Jonah Goldberg, in a Corner post that is, surprisingly, not entitled "Hey! Them's MY Nachos!"
