I recently stumbled across a website that purports to represent a center-right point-of-view called The American Conservative. Initially intrigued -- considering that Americans can always use compelling conservative opinion sites -- I perused the site and quickly noticed something a bit, well, off.
No fewer than five articles on the front page alone represented attacks on Sen. Ted Cruz -- the brilliant Constitutional conservative from Texas -- and many more attacked Israel and "Islamophobia". The ludicrous crackpot Stephen M. Walt, a notorious purveyor of anti-semitism, is linked as are pseudo-conservatives like Conor Friedersdorf.
in short, I smelled a rat. Using whois, I quickly determined that the domain was owned by one Daniel McCarthy and the offices of the publication are listed as 1710 Rhode Island Ave. NW, Suite 1200 in Washington, DC.
You'll never guess what other magazine has its headquarters in the same office?
That's right: the far left, radical Marxists at The American Prospect, a veritable cornucopia of crypto-Communism.
The American Prospect is a bimonthly American political magazine dedicated to American liberalism. Based in Washington, DC, The American Prospect is a journal 'of liberal ideas, committed to a just society, an enriched democracy, and effective liberal politics' which focuses on United States politics and public policy. Politically, the magazine is in support of modern American liberalism, similar to The New Republic and The Nation.
TAP's writers include the world's dumbest blogger -- Matty Yglesias -- as well as the world's dumbest publisher, Ezra Klein.
Put simply, TAC and TAP share an office and an ideology: a rabid hatred of the Constitution as well as America's history, traditions, culture and mores.
So when you accidentally step on Internet chewing gum like TAC, know you are viewing an apparent false-flag operation that operates like a honeypot.
I haven't provided any links, because this kind of lint isn't even worth the 0.0000000001 calories it would take to click on a link.
