On September 9th, a man named Joshua Ryne Goldberg was indicted by the U.S. government for planning to set off an explosion at an event in Kansas City on the anniversary of 9/11. Quick to try and exploit this for political gain, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas sent out the above tweet, accusing Goldberg of being a writer for the right-wing news site Breitbart.
But there was one problem. The article Moulitsas tweeted out never says that Goldberg wrote for Breitbart. But to quote from the article, you may notice a familiar name:
Goldberg also had another alter ego, Tanya Cohen, whom he attacked using Michael Slay on the Daily Stormer. Cohen was evidently a parody of far-left social justice activists. Slay called her “a Jew bitch who specializes in writing about how the US needs to ban ‘hate speech’ and any other speech that goes against the Jewish cultural Marxist agenda.” An email in Tanya Cohen’s name was linked to Goldberg’s IP address, and articles in her name appeared on Thought Catalog, Daily Kos, and feminist website Feministing.
You read that correctly. Moulitsas tried to smear Breitbart for having a terrorist among the ranks of their writers, and turned out to have that same terrorist as one of his own. You can’t make this stuff up.
