Media Figure Tastelessly Mocks Trump Over Mounting Deaths, Celebrated When Americans Died in Iraq

Markos Moulitsas, the liberal activist founder of “Daily Kos” and co-founder of Vox Media, took to Twitter to tastelessly mock President Donald Trump over the rising U.S. death toll from COVID-19.

“Trump loves to be number one! Even if it’s mass death. It’s great for ratings! U-S-A! U-S-A!,” Moulitsas tweeted when the United States reported more COVID-19 cases than Italy.

Eager to attack the United States and Trump, Moulitsas did not address the fact Communist China has been falsifying its reports, which supposedly showed only 81,620 cases, despite the fact so many have died Chinese crematories have been running non-stop for weeks.

But while Moulitsas is mocking Trump for supposedly celebrating the deaths of Americans, Moulitsas rose to infamy in 2004 when he publicly cheered the deaths of Americans in Iraq.

In April of 2004 four American civilian contractors escorting a food delivery truck in Fallujah, Iraq were ambushed by terrorists.

The mob pulled the Americans out of the convoy and brutally tortured them before burning them alive and displaying the bodies from a bridge.

While the world was horrified by the brutality, Moulitsas could barely hide his bloodlust and glee.

Posting on his “Daily Kos” website, Moulitsas openly cheered the deaths and the terrorists’ decision to hang Americans’ bodies from the bridge as terrorist propaganda.

“Every death should be on the front page,” Moulitsas sneered. “Let the people see what war is like. This isn’t an Xbox game. There are real repercussions to Bush’s folly.

“That said, I feel nothing over the death of merceneries [sic]. They aren’t in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them,” Moulitsas growled.

Daily Kos has since deleted the post and erased it from both Google’s cache and the Internet Archive, but Moulitsas’ terrorist cheerleading was widely condemned at the time.

Moulitsas attempted to walk back his assault the next day, but even his “apology” attacked dead Americans. “I was angry that these mercenaries would leave their wives and children behind to enter a war zone on their own volition. So I struck back,” Moulitsas claimed.

He is now a major liberal media figure, serving as a co-founder of Vox Media and SB Nation.

  1. Good people die at uncommonly low ages due to various ailments, but the evil seem to live forever like Moulitsas.
    Since we have hate laws in effect is Barr just being late to do the job of arresting the hideous monster?

    • At this time it is to their advantage to talk the actual number who have died. Never mind what killed them. The bureaucrats who are part of the SWAMP want as high a number as possible. What would be interesting would be the PERCENTAGE of deaths to the total population. Compare Italy with America for that.

  2. Here is another mindless idiot. The virus may make him a statistic. No one in the US will cry. Maybe he could take a couple of friends with him..Acosta,wallace just to mention a few.

  3. This person ( Barely a man ) is just so wrong and has a very stupid way of judging
    our President and his accomplishments amid horrendous difficulties
    He might consider rethinking his position?

  4. They’re at it again anything to smear, ridicule, mock our President Trump, but Mr. Trump
    continues his fight against this virus with all hands on deck. He has to be the greatest person to be able to withstand all the negative comments the liberals throw at him. Americans know the liberals agenda fake news again, Karma. Great job President Trump!

  5. Marcos , Demon, shut up your stinky mouth. You are not American Citizen because you want more AMERICAN death. If American, you show PITY to American death. Get lost from America’ Go to hell.

  6. It is useless to post a comment on this site. Everyone here is a DJT supporter. Whom do you think you are going to convince? I, for one, am moving on to another site, with more diverse commenters.

  7. I don’t think a word has been invented as of yet to describe someone like Markos Moulitsas . You give this big of a fool the ability to speak and the results are predictable. Like a leaper there should be a special isolated place to put this kind of trash. Absolutely no offense meant to the leaper as your affliction was not your fault and doesn’t take away from your humanity.
    People like Markos are simply scum of the earth.

  8. Just another foreign idiot, attempting to hurt America. He is a senseless ant that crawls around stinging people for his own personal confidence. He has no confidence, therefore, he must bash others to feel good about himself.

    His day will come as KARMA always makes its way back around….

    He is like a bunch of others losers… Just the name Trump allows these fools to show their stupidity. Their tiny minds can’t handle an awesome, amazing, smart, intelligent man such as Trump.

  9. Only foolish children listen to his drivel. Heard of both and never bothered because I knew it would be stupid on both DailyKos and Vox. His parents were obviously failures.

  10. Clearly this idiot doesn’t understand what a pandemic is. People are suffering and dying throughout the world and in the United States as well and he’s playing his liberal/progressive socialist/communist games with little regard, no humanity and no empathy for the people who are suffering. This guy could be the poster child as devil’s disciple.

  11. Oh he did that Sh—t. He says things that can’t be taken back and expects people to back him up. Families are grieving and now is not the time to be aloof. Damn

    • You find them dumb you leave them dumb – please learn to read something / anything to fill your day with something other than name calling —/ too many small minded illiterate people is what’s wrong with America…

      And I happen to be a republican and it’s people like you that are crapping all over our party

  12. I notice he doesn’t bother comparing our population to that of Italy, etc. The only nation listed with a higher population than us is China and if he believes any figures originating with the communist Chinese government he’s delusional and a fool.

  13. I well remember the democommunists excitedly looking for U.S. troop deaths in Iraq to hit 1000 before the upcoming election. The democommunists have made it perfectly clear over the course of 70 or so years how much they loathe the U.S. Military and Law Enforcement. On the other hand they always side with America’s enemies and have been coddling criminals forever.

  14. Sirdirkfan, there had better not be any so-called ‘hate laws’ in the United States, they would be profoundly unconstitutional!!!!

  15. Markos Moulitsas is apparently a very sick individual who has lost all morality and decency. He does not belong in the public sphere except as an example of how politics can corrupt a person’s moral compass.
