Stylish fascism is always in vogue

Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah Mercer are the billionaires — pardon us, that’s secretive billionaires — whose infusions of money financed the rise of Steve Bannon and made Breitbart the central mouthpiece for the far right, and were also among Donald Trump’s most enthusiastic big-money funders. Now that they’ve got a president of their very own, they’re apparently working on funding the next generation of far right stars, helping Milo Yiannopoulous, the clownish creeper who thinks neo-Nazi imagery is all just good fun and also sees no big deal with a bit of pedophilia as long as it’s friendly (Maybe he was joking! He jokes about everything! Except the existential threats to Western Civilization, of course, which are very real).

BuzzFeed has acquired a bunch of leaked documents that strongly suggest the Mercer family provided a great big cushion of money for Yiannopoulos to land on after being forced to resign from Dead Breitbart’s Home Of Anything But Pedophilia Goes in February. Reporter Joseph Bernstein says that the Mercers want to win the next phase of the culture war online by helping Yiannopoulos destroy the left, or at least act like a well-funded asshole. The Mercers appear to have provided seed money for his new venture, Milo, Inc., and have stepped in to help him stay in the country after his Breitbart-sponsored visa expired.

Apart from establishing that the Mercers are Yiannopoulos’s new patrons — and that he is very happy to have such heavy hitters on his side, which proves he’s the best — there’s nothing too salacious in the emails, although we do learn he has a penchant for sending all-caps, bolded, underlined emails to his staff, who he doesn’t really trust that much. One email is about the absolute urgency of getting the youngsters — lots of staff aged 20 to 22 — to sign nondiclosure agreements, and another, to staffers, makes it absolutely clear you little shits better keep Milo informed any time you talk about money, damn it you kids:

“IF YOU HAVE CALLS WITH INVESTORS, I NEED TO BE ON THEM OR I NEED A DEBRIEF EMAIL AS SOON AS YOU HANG UP AND MY PERMISSION NEEDS TO BE SOUGHT AHEAD OF TIME, BEFORE YOU MAKE THESE CALLS. YOU DON’T KNOW WHO ANY OF THESE PEOPLE ARE AND THIS WILL CAUSE ME COLOSSAL PROBLEMS WITH THE MERCERS IF IT CONTINUES.”

So he speaks the native language of the young’uns. Oh, and he likes to call the Mercers “mom and dad,” eww.

Neither the Mercers nor Yiannopoulos would comment for the story, and the CEO of Milo, Inc., Alexander Macris, would only say “My company has not done a deal with the Mercers and I am not their spokesperson,” which is a lovely non-denial denial. But the emails do suggest that Yiannopoulos looked to the Mercers to keep him from becoming one of those illegal immigrants after getting shitcanned at Breitbart, in which case he might have to start screaming incoherently at himself about the threat he poses to civilization. In a February email exchange, Macris asked him about his visa status, noting, “It is a virtual certainty that if you don’t have a visa you’ll be targeted by the enemy.” (Not Immigration and Customs Enforcement, of course. They’re the best. Macris clearly meant the DEEP STATE.) Milo wasn’t too worried, because God, or at least Mammon, is on his side:

I AM ON AN O-1B [Visa …] I HAVE 57 DAYS LEFT TO FILE A PETITION TO MOVE 0-1B TO NEW SPONSOR IF IT COMES TO IT THE MERCERS WILL PUT ME ON THE BOOKS AT ONE OF THEIR OTHER COMPANIES TO TAKE CARE OF THIS BUT IDEALLY THE NEW BUSINESS WILL DO THIS.

Ultimately, when DHS notified him his visa was about to be revoked (see? The enemy WAS coming after him!), Milo, Inc. came to his rescue, sponsoring his new visa. Macris explained to BuzzFeed:

“I handled this personally (I am an attorney) in conjunction with an immigration specialist I retained[.]”

That was awfully neighborly of Milo’s CEO to help him out like that.

So yes, it looks like the Mercers are delighted to have the chance to fund Milo. They sponsored his “Dangerous Faggot” tour, and a source says “Rebekah Mercer loves Milo,” because what rich sponsor of rightwing politics wouldn’t be delighted to help out a guy who knows the secret to making women happy would be to uninvent the washing machine and the Pill? Oh, sure, maybe Milo wrote the world would be better if women were banned from the internet, but that’s satire, where’s your sense of humor? According to one of BuzzFeed’s sources, Milo is exactly the ticket to capture the next generation of conservatives, or whatever it is those crazy Nazis with the cartoon frog are:

“The Mercers want to do whatever they can to bring this new style of conservatism to a younger generation. Milo did that for Breitbart with their money and they see no reason to change that.”

We imagine the Mercers like to have him come up to their mansion to vomit in the swimming pool for laughs.

    • natoslug

      Step 1 is get a billion dollars.

      • Villago Delenda Est

        Then you tell the tax judge “I forgot to pay my taxes!”

        • natoslug

          The first rule of secretive billionaire club is that nobody’s supposed to know you’re a billionaire. If the tax judge catches on, you’ve failed. Taxes, like size 2 shoes, are for little people.

        • jesterpunk

          It isnt just them, its their politicians too. Milo claims being gay is a choice which also fits into their narrative, so the right can claim their laws dont hurt anyone since they can just choose to be straight instead of choosing to be gay.

          • Elvis Causticfellow

      Thanks! Good reminder that we need to embrace our Class Traitors when we find them. I’m also a big fan of Nick Hannauer, who made his billions as an early funder of Amazon and insists that if you want real economic prosperity, you’d aim more economic benefits to the middle and working class, since they would buy a hell of a lot more stuff than a bunch of rich people. And then the rich get richer selling them stuff. Henry Ford, for all his awfulness, was no philanthropist when he paid his workers a living wage. He knew they’d be able to afford a Model T.

      This perspective is not appreciated by the people who get rich moving money around without building anything.

But then again, we shouldn’t take advice from someone who thinks that the 2008 recession, which actually started in 2006 but didn’t fully collapse until 2008, really started in 2009 after Obama was sworn into office. And the reason for the recession? We voted Obama into office.

  • Panika MCD

    OT – we’re trying to put together a slide show for this trip my family (sans me…special session) are taking to WY in August for the eclipse. it’s specifically about Prima Momma’s life which is all good and well. but Prima Brother is tossing up any photos he finds and there are about 1 million nekkid babby Panika photos because…well…I don’t know how to explain why Dama (Prima Momma’s mom) felt that it was necessary to take so many. there are certainly about 5% the amount of nekkid babby photos of Prima Brother and Alien Brother/Gollum though they were nekkid at least as much if not more. so I’m trying to help, but my babby vag is all over this album. help?

    • SnarkON

      Just vehemently and repeatedly deny that it’s you in the photographs. Works for Trump.

      • Panika MCD

        I’m not sure that’s possible. my bros were both babby blondes. I’m very clearly a brunette and the only girl.

    • TundraGrifter

      Wyoming is loaded with history. Much of it rather sad (settlers and the US Army fighting the First Americans), the fur traders, the Oregon Trail, etc. And some beautiful scenery. Windy as Hell, though.

      • Panika MCD

        okay, but this album is about my mom, not WY’s history–though it includes a good bit of her growing up there.

        • TundraGrifter

          I was thinking more about the August visit than the album photos. It sounds like you have a neat family.

          • Panika MCD

            I have a weird family. sometimes they’re cool. more often than not, they’re really annoying. I’m okay with missing the venture as they’ve decided to wear furry costumes the whole trip.

          • Lori

            Your family is so very different from mine. So very, very different. Mine is aggressively “normal” and dull. And Jesusy. Very Jesusy.
            I feel like if we added our 2 families and divided by 2 you and I would probably both be happier.

          • Panika MCD

            you are welcome to Prima Momma.

            my dad’s side is Catholic and they are a huge family and the run the entire spectrum. my mom’s side is much smaller–that’s the group that’s going to WY. no jesus.

          • Lori

            So Much Jesus + No Jesus /2 = Tolerable amount of Jesus

    • BeachBum

      I wouldn’t worry about it unless a Yodeling Vegan Toddler Butthole Restaurant opens in town and wants you to be their “spokes” person.

      • Panika MCD

        I won’t be there…and am no longer a babby.

    • Ω cynmac will never surrender

      Are you part of the collection process?Are the pictures stored at Prima Momma’s? It sounds like you are over there more than your bros. If there is an opportunity to make certain pages of the album ‘disappear’, make that happen.

      • Panika MCD

        you missed the part where Alien Brother turned into Gollum over the Xmas holidays and Prima Momma threw out my back on purpose and my aunts rescued me…didn’t you? the house has been sold and Prima Brother has all the photo albums now. he’s uploading them onto a google photo album that we’re supposed to be going through. I found one cute one of me in a babby pool that doesn’t have my clam way out there in front, but none of the others have been taken down.

        • Ω cynmac will never surrender

          I heard the Gollum brother story and your back being out. I missed the house being sold. So where is Prima Mama now?

          • Panika MCD

            she’s in an assisted living facility and doing much better…except Gollum isn’t mirroring for her on the tooth brushing front. the every day rehab has done wonders. the assisted living facility let her keep all her cats. they tried to have the dog there and he got put on pet therapy duty in the memory ward, but then someone who was supposed to know he’s afraid of other dogs (Callie excluded) brought their dog in and the guy threw out his back. he’s now with Gollum and Alien SisterinLaw has fallen in love with her. Gollum thinks its too much for him to spend 2 hours a day with her even though it’s close to his work so he’s getting a house with all the handicapable accessories to move her into with him and Alien SisterinLaw. not wild about the plan myself because I think he’s going to put Alien SisterinLaw in a bind and Prima Momma says mean things about her behind her back…which may become not-so-secret. my brothers still talk about her finances in front of her without involving her in the conversation which annoys me because she’s perfectly capable of making her own decisions on that front–she’s just not good at paying the bills on time. but they should ask her what she wants as far as expenditures go.

          • Ω cynmac will never surrender

            That sux. Alien SIL should think twice about that cohab sitch, but they never do. The assisted living place sounds great.

          • Panika MCD

            it is, but it costs the big bucks. I just don’t want Alien SIL to have to experience even a modicum of the animosity that Prima Momma has sent in my direction ever.

    WASHINGTON — Republicans are considering advancing their health care bill without an analysis from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office on a major new provision that insurers warn would wreak havoc on customers and would amount to a virtually unprecedented procedural move in the Senate.

    • shivaskeeper

      Sucks to be them. They need the CBO score if they are going to try for reconciliation with the House. No CBO score means no reconciliation and the bill is subject to filibuster. Unless they are going to strip Cuz-care out and go with the CBO without it.

    • Panika MCD

      wouldn’t that also too break their reconciliation rules?

      • Komsumverweigerer Ron

        I think they’ve given up even PRETENDING they care about rules.

        • Panika MCD

          but they have to either follow the rules or change them which they can’t do if they can’t get at least 51 people on board. they have less support for doing that than for the bill itself.

          • Komsumverweigerer Ron

            Well, a question then: if they do ignore the rules, push something through, get it to Donnie’s desk, what can be done about it? I’m quite serious – it’s been appearing to me lately that the rules have only worked because people are agreeing to them, and there’s no mechanism to do anything if they’re broken.

          • Panika MCD

            they’d have to either ignore the parliamentarian (which has pretty much never happened) or they have to vote to suspend the rule–which usually takes a 2/3rds vote.

          • Lori

            When it comes to rule-breaking, the fact that no one has ever done it barely constitutes a speed bump to the GOPers. It’s certainly not a stop sign.

          • Panika MCD

            yes, but we can use parliamentary maneuvers to delay while we get the legal grounding together.

          • Lori

            I hope someone in the Dem caucus is on that, because if they’re just assuming McTurtle wouldn’t do it we’re going to be in trouble.

          • Panika MCD

            I’m sure they are.

          • SayItWithWookies

            I think the Democrats and just about anybody affected by the bill would have standing to sue, and a judge would be well within bounds to put a hold on the law, considering that if the rules had been followed, it wouldn’t have passed anyway.

          • puredog

            Yeah, you could sue, but there’s a doctrine of judicial avoidance called “political question” which — boiled down to its essence — is that this is a spat between coequal branches of gov including the legislature, and the electorate, if they don’t like it, can vote the bastids out, but we courts are not going to presume to assume jurisdiction.

          • SayItWithWookies

            I can see that might be an obstacle, and there’s no way to predict how the Roberts court would rule (because that moron tends to look for middle ground when the Republican argument is untenable, as in their ruling on the Trump Muslim ban); and the real danger exists that they would find it a political question based on the first of these criteria:

            Prominent onthe surface of anycase held to involve a political question is found:

            (1) a textually demonstrable constitutional commitment of the issue to a coordinate political department;
            (2) or a lack of judicially discoverable and manageable standards for resolving it;
            (3) or the impossibility of deciding without an initial policy
            determination of a kind clearly for nonjudicial discretion;
            (4) or the impossibility of a court’s undertaking independent resolution without expressing lack of the respect due coordinate branches of government;
            (5) or an unusual need for unquestioning adherence to a political decision already made;
            (6) or the potentiality of embarrassment from multifarious pronouncements by various departments on one question.”
            (Baker v Carr)

            But the Supreme Court intervened in Powell v. McCormack which had to do with the seating of a representative. If they’re willing to see that as not a political question, I think there’s room to see not following their own rules as not being a political question as well.

          M.Y. here was certainly popular and his articles and talks prolly generated a lot of value to his employers. I may not like his work, but he did have an impact, for whatever reasons.

      As Trump himself once noted, that’s what the 2nd Amendment is for.

    • Lori

      A combination of attention, to eliminate the “shadowy” aspect and voting for people who will enforce existing regulations and, ideally, raise the top marginal tax rate to something approaching 1950s’ levels, to reduce the enormous advantages conferred by inherited wealth. Other than that, IDK.

    • Sunhead

      I have a pet theory.
      All the things your opponents accuse you of doing are they things they would (or are) doing, and in the case of the alt-right add, but can’t even prove through fabrication.
      Let that illuminate what it is they are accusing everyone else of doing.

    • Jared James

      We appoint a Supreme Court willing to reconsider Citizens United.

      Oh, wait, that won’t work because the Senate won’t consider a nomination if it’s within 5 years of the end of a Democratic President’s term.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Well now, it appear Mercer has his own bum boy to play with, how novel, how very 17th century Catholic Pope of him.

  • Subrok

    When he showed up at the UW/and that asshat shot that person/and it was all ‘freeze peach1’ -> guh.

    • Zombishroom

      Gah! Liberals are REALLY the violent ones.

  • What a hypocritical douchebag. Gianni Versace has some things to say to you about dressing like Miami Viceroy, there, Milo. . .

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    I was researching foundations (for someone we might know!) that support organizations working on public policy; it was a deep dive into the vast rightwing conspiracy. There are DOZENS of foundations like the Mercer Foundation, which I did come across, that support libertarian, “free market solutions,” “educational choice,” etc. There are maybe 6 that either don’t take an ideological stand, or support more reality-based solutions. You hear about this stuff, and then every now and then it hits you over the head.

    • H0mer0

      I like(sn) the irony of the titles for their euphemistic ideologies which sound exactly like the opposite of what they really want like “free market” (monopoly for them), “right to work” (union busting), “school choice”(sucking the money out of public schools.) Now when I hear a variation on what sounds like a good thing (like”energy independence”) I am now wary of the motive behind the proponents of any benign sounding concept, especially if someone like Gingrich is involved.

      • Dudleydidwrong

        “Energy independence” can mean fighting any possible support from government or private sources for wind or solar power. It’s the same as “religious freedom” meaning freedom to practice our religion but not for you to practice yours.

        • House0fTheBlueLights

          They’re really geniuses at that stuff. I was very proud of the Dems for immediately coining “Age Tax” to describe the AHCA, before the Rs could co-opt them. But part of the reason they get away with it is this network of foundations, think tanks, media companies and PR firms that are all linked and plan it out, unlike the reality-based universe which is relying on shit to go viral, with which the problem is that then it stays inside the progressive bubble and doesn’t make it into common language.

      • The Flaming Carrot

        Freedom.

  • CATMAN

    It never ceases to amaze me the kind of sleazeballs that the extreme right will hook up with to advance their agenda, which for the Mercers and their cohort is the transfer of wealth upwards

  • fifthdentist

    (In Jake Blues’ voice) “Foreign gay Nazis.I HATE foreign gay Nazis!”

  • Gorillionaire

    Gotta admit, it’s a pretty good grift.

    • Zombishroom

      It’s really a fault of us lefties that we just can’t catch the grift.

  • Jeffery Campbell

    Oh, that’s just fucking splendid, a fag hag with limitless dollars in her Hermes Birkin.

    • acmeopinionfactory

      Her Hermes Merkin.

  • DoILookAmused2u? Résistance☨

    Team Trump has announced the upcoming CBO score they have not read is the real fake news.

  • Zombishroom

    Puking in the pool party at the Mercer place! Drink up youngin, we got some pukin’ to do. Extra points if you also shit in the pool.

  • Vagenda and Pee-ara

    The Mercers were the shitheels who were sponsoring Ted Cruz’s presidential run, and who finance KellyAnne ConAWay. I would call the Mercers “scum” but that would be insulting to the scum.

  • Ray in VT

    Proving that a bunch of these right wing s-bags will fund just about other ring wing jerk, even, apparently, if he thinks that maybe adults touching kids in their downtown business isn’t all that bad.

  • Wait, so all the refugees need to do is become incorporated and then hire themselves?

    • Dudleydidwrong

      I’m sure that for a very large fee Macris (“I am an attorney”) could handle the incorporation papers. If there’s money to be made, Macris will make it.

      One wonders about law school admissions these days….

  • SeeTrain65

    Fuck ’em all. I’m off to the store for some 7up, saltines and Pepto.

  • sgt. jmk of the résistance

    Renaissance Technologies – Mercer’s company – is located in the town in which I grew up, and my Congressman, Flee Zeldin, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Mercers.

    I am ashamed of that every time I hear Mercer’s name.

    • motocat

      Is “Flee Zeldin” a real name? He’s got to have problems.

      • sgt. jmk of the résistance

        Nah… it’s Lee, but since he chooses not to have public events like town halls – preferring to show up on CNN and at fundraising events – his name got a little altered.

  • Wes

    I REALLY hoped he was going away but it was just a temporary remission.

    Just like my herpes…

  • Justin Dunn

    Hahaha. You’re so mad. Winning

    • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

      How is right-wing welfare winning?

      Also, how’s that winning going with the failure of healthcare “repeal and replace” tonight?

      The muslim ban? The budget? North Korea?

      • Pisto75666

        I feel so badly for that poor person’s “wife”

  • Peripatetic Poltroon

    I googled the Mercers & it’s weird, but I’m pretty sure Rebekah a) doesn’t know how to spell Rebecca, b) is actually a man, and c) only owns 1 pair of eyeglasses, which is kinda weird for a rich person.

    So you have billions of dollars at your disposal that you could spend on literally anything from making a big dent in world hunger or at the very least taking a private jaunt into space and instead you invest in smarmy, self promoting pedo apologists?

    Priorities, priorities.

  • whitroth

    But, but, they’re ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, Western Civilization *is* under threat. I can even name the biggest threats: the Koch bros, the Mercers, Trump…..
