The Fourth Quarter 2016 “We’ve Got a Bigger Problem Now” pledge drive is entering the home stretch, and I just wanted to update you all on the progress.
First of all, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone who has donated! Some of you really came through in a big way; I’m humbled and deeply appreciative!
Second, we are still a bit short of what I need to keep this blog going strong. If you haven’t donated yet, click the little button below and help put this pledge drive over the top!
Donating, as I’ve noted before. is easy. You don’t need a PayPal account; credit cards are accepted, and there are other options as well. If you’re outside the US, PayPal will automatically convert your non-American money into American bucks.You can also set up recurring payments through PayPal if that’s more convenient to you.
What do you get for your donation? THIS BLOG! And the satisfaction of knowing that you’re making a real difference in keeping WHTM going.
I’ve been looking back at some of the more widely read or otherwise influential WHTM posts in this very strange and often quite depressing year. Some of the highlights:
Rereading Eco’s famous essay on “Eternal Fascism” it’s abundantly clear just how “fashy” our president-elect really is.
A blow-by-blow account of the time the awesome Lindy West took on Richard Dawkins, who responded like the oblivious little shit he’s become.
Remember the Roosh World Tour? This post, one of my most widely read, provided people who had just discovered Roosh with a handy guide to his various kinds of awfulness; I also corrected much of the misinformation floating around on the internet and in press accounts of Roosh.
That one was a bit more fun.
An account of alt-right opportunist Milo’s attempts to woo the Nazis, and a takedown of his ludicrous and deeply dishonest “Establishment Conservative’s Guide To The Alt-Right,” a 5000-word apologia for a bunch of people who would happily send him to a death camp if they could.
Speaking of the awfulness of the so-called alt-right:
It was, as you all know, kind of a big year for the alt-right, and I was on them from the start:
But we had fun when we could:
Let’s make 2017 less horrible together!
Wait, let me put that in cat meme form:
And THANK YOU again!
