We talked to "Matt" about all of it (he started as an unpaid protester, graduated to "Paid Protester" at the 2011 Take Back the Capitol event, and worked as an organizer for the Service Employees International Union) and he explained how a career in activism really works ...yes, there is absolutely some money floating around activism, that's inevitable in a capitalist society.

They’re a pretty hard left site, full of the usual lies and talking points even in their “humor” articles. It’s no surprise that they play the moral equivalency card.

Yeah, I used to read nearly every thing they posted but now I just skim the headlines and, 90% of the time, don’t bother clicking on them.

I have noticed that the comments section is increasingly sick of the SJW whining in every supposedly “funny” article.
