Gawker is going down hard.
After years of doing the wet-dream work of leftists everywhere, the charade of lionizing scumbags parading as journalists has crumbled.
Crumbled in the face of Hulkamania. Hulk Hogan’s 24-inch pythons helped to hammer one of the most dishonest publications on the web into the ground.
Gawker’s founder, Nick Denton, has taken refuge under the guise of being a gay crusader, citing Peter Thiel’s involvement as the reason for Gawker’s “persecution.”
The rest of the world simply agrees with Peter Thiel that Gawker is an asshole nest. That’s why the jury slammed Gawker down. “We the people” took Gawker out.
When your publication helps it’s troll-fans find the personal telephone numbers of the Palin family, introduces a “stalker map” or forces gay people out of the closet before they are ready to come out, it is not respectable in even the loosest sense of the word.
It’s a nest of assholes.
This summer, raise a glass with your friends to the bitch-slapping of this social cancer.
Chances are it will be back in another form… just like cancer.
