Where are all the leftist billionaires when you need one? Failing to secure a new publisher, ThinkProgress, that bombinating bastion of leftist tripe, is shutting down.
Maybe it had nothing to do with the fact that ThinkProgress writers practiced what they preached, unionizing to stick it to the Man–their bosses at the Center for American Progress. Or maybe, failing to find someone else to be the Bad Capitalist at a place where they openly worship Stalin and Che Guevara was the direct result of having a staff who loves to bite the hand that feeds it.
There, that’ll fix those eggheads at CAP! They won’t have ThinkProgress to kick around anymore. I hope those money-grubbing employers have learned their lesson!
That’s right, now the comrades at ThinkProgress can do their thinking while they enjoy unemployment, while some are sticking it to the Man at other progressive publications, spreading seeds of undoing the capitalist practice of providing paychecks. Or perhaps some will be found behind the counter at your local Starbucks, when they’re not attending $15/hour wage protests or dying in at the Chick-fil-A on their break.
As for the website itself, it will become an “archive” for CAP people to search or to post their own impenetrable intersectional jibberish for others to read.
Goodbye ThinkProgress. We will miss you! Where else (other than Snopes) can you find such a ready treasure trove of self-writing stories proving the pointlessness of progressive policies? And remember, the best way to stick it to the Man is to keep yourself unemployed.
