Hours after he sent them, Drumpf’s campaign cited his attack on Google in a text message asking voters to donate ahead of a key fundraising deadline.

It’s won’t be long before Milo whinges “hey, that’s my idea! Give me money, too!” He’s been in that kind of mood lately.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s Il Douche, Milo, Ben Shapiro, Jordaddy, [random televangelist], or any right-winger who’s facing a deficit of cash and/or attention, it’s always the same tired grift*. It starts with a particularly unconvincing privileged white man’s version of:

Followed by blaming the media, academia, (((Hollywood))), Teh Gays, tech companies, feminists, really any group of educated and apparently prosperous people who have the temerity not to be miserable with lives that operate independent of Big Angry Father authority figures.

But not to worry, with the help of that long list of spiteful eternal suckers titled “America’s Know-Nothing 27%” they always have a way of fighting back against these straw men, which is some variation on:

With out it, they are free to throttle whatever they want.
