Part of Trump's idiotic propaganda machine:
A North Carolina businessman and failed congressional candidate, Tim D’Annunzio, gained as many as 200,000 impressions on a pair of ads that provided the supposed name of the whistleblower. He promoted the posts using a personal page titled “Message,” targeting “people who are Christian-related, who have Christian interests,” he said in an interview.
D’Annunzio said he first came across the name of the supposed whistleblower in a Gateway Pundit article. “And then it started to pop up in other places, where it’s obvious he’s the guy,” he said.
Those of you who are not long-time BlueNC readers may not be aware of this dude, but here's a quote from his failed Congressional effort back in 2010:
The coming battle, he wrote, will be against "The wicked (The Liberal Leftist Socialist Democrats and their beast in the news media)."
"They want to destroy you," he continued. "At what point are you going to realize this is a war to the death. This is a fight that is either the end of US [sic] or the end of them. I say it is the end of them and their evil world."
Trump and his entourage have actively recruited dangerous idiots like D'Annunzio to defend the corrupt President, and viciously attack those who criticize him. What happened to Valerie Plame was bad enough, but the Brown Shirts are going all-in to expose the whistleblower, and no doubt many of them actually want to get him killed in the process.
This is not normal, folks. Far from it.
