This week’s Douchebag of the Week “winner” is a newcomer to the award and you may have never heard of him, but in no way is he less of a douchebag than past winners. Tom Matzzie is the consummate douchebag, a douchebag’s douchebag, if you will.
Matzzie, head of the former “Progressive Media USA” (folded). a group you’ve undoubtedly never heard of unless you are one of the few morons who’ve donated to them, has formed a new soon-to-be-failed group called “Accountable America.” AA (Accountable America, not “AA”) hopes to harass Americans with whom they disagree in order to shut them up and, more importantly, shut down their political voice leaving only left-wing radical groups to speak their minds.
This is typical of the regressive, er, “progressive” movement; if it doesn’t conform to what you want 100 percent it must be destroyed, no one is allowed to speak but them, ever!
Seems Matzzie wants to stop “Swift Boating,” the new catch-all phrase for anyone who dare say anything not positive about a liberal Democrat, a term with which the media completely agrees and embraces when the target is a Democrat but forgets when it’s a Republican. But we’re straying…
Matzzie wants to essentially threaten or harass donors to groups who run ads against Barack Obama and pretty much any Democrat by sending them letters, running ads announcing their names or who knows what else. If the act of harassing someone simply because they disagree with you and have the means and the nerve to say so publicly isn’t douchey, what is?
But the cherry on top isn’t Matzzie’s douchebag borderline fascist philosophy, though that would be enough, it’s the fact that his group, Accountable America, is a 501(c)4 and doesn’t disclose who their donors are! So while he seeks to target right of center donors like Sheldon Adelson and Mel Sembler, people he only suspects might be daring to speak since if they give they give to other 501(c)4s he would have no way of knowing, he is hiding who donates to him.
The hypocrisy coupled with the douchebaggery of what he is doing makes Tom Matzzie our Douchebag of the Week!
