William Regnery II is DEAD!


Fuck all these dudes.

Break out the party hats, the millionaire who funded so much evil and misinformation in the world has kicked the bucket, finally.

William H. Regnery II, a racist, reclusive multimillionaire who used his inherited fortune to finance vile white supremacist groups in the hopes of one day forming an American whites-only ethnostate, died earlier this month, his family and associates confirmed. He was 80 years old.

Regnery, whose family amassed riches from its right-wing publishing empire, died on July 2 in Florida after a “long battle with cancer,” his cousin Alfred, the former head of Regnery Publishing, confirmed to HuffPost.

I wouldn’t normally say this about a cancer victim, but jesus, I hope he suffered. He’s the lunatic with a fortune and a printing press who has been bankrolling creationists and fascists for decades. He gets a lengthy obit in the NY Times, the SPLC does a better job. This is the man who founded the National Policy Institute, if you like your Nazis with an innocuous title, and the Occidental Quarterly, if you want your racist pseudoscience dressed up as a pretend science journal.

I’d like to dream that the poison he injected into the nation will rot with his corpse, but I suspect there will be a new snake slithering into his place and his money.

    Regnery, the same people who recently published that anti-trans crap, which Harriet Hall failed to recognize as crap?

    I rarely advocate violence, but killing this guy would be like killing Hitler. Imagine how much less misery pain and death would have been poured into the world if he had simply not existed.

    There are few people who deserve a tankless porta-potty resting over their headstone, but I’d say that he qualifies for it.

    I’m just spitballing here, but I would watch a show that had a troupe going around the country dancing on the graves of horrible people. I’m thinking there would be a summary of why they are horrible and then we get a disco ball, dancing and a light show.
    People might even learn some of their own history, and a new dance step.
