As Twitchy reported on the eve on 9/11, authorities arrested a Florida man who was caught working with an informant to build and detonate a pressure cooker bomb at Sunday‚Äôs Kansas City Memorial Stair Climb, which honors first responders.
In the criminal complaint, Goldberg, of Orange Park, Fla., went by the name AusWitness and claimed to be from Perth, Australia. Today, Markos Moulitsas, founder of Daily Kos and co-founder of Vox Media, is claiming that Goldberg went by many aliases and personas, and even wrote for conservative site Breitbart.com.
What‚Äôs baffling is that Moulitsas‚Äô link points to a piece in The Daily Beast in which writer Katie Zavadski rounds up several of Goldberg‚Äôs online personas. Breitbart.com isn‚Äôt mentioned once, though, although Daily Kos is [emphasis ours]:
Goldberg also had another alter ego, Tanya Cohen, whom he attacked using Michael Slay on the Daily Stormer. Cohen was evidently a parody of far-left social justice activists. Slay called her ‚Äúa Jew bitch who specializes in writing about how the US needs to ban ‚Äėhate speech‚Äô and any other speech that goes against the Jewish cultural Marxist agenda.‚ÄĚ An email in Tanya Cohen‚Äôs name was linked to Goldberg‚Äôs IP address, and articles in her name appeared on Thought Catalog, Daily Kos, and feminist website Feministing.
Milo Yiannopoulos is an actual Breitbart.com writer.
So far, the only response from Moulitsas has been this bit of trolling.
