Ben Howe Fired from Woke Liberal Agitprop Organization "The Lincoln Project" For Using Salty Language

When you join the #WokeLeft, Ben, you have to abide by the #WokeLeft's speech control rules.


A video editor who shaped the buzzy Lincoln Project ads needling President Trump is no longer affiliated with the Republican organization over a series of past tweets in which he used offensive slang for female anatomy to insult political rivals.

Ben Howe, who came of age politically making anti-Obama ads during the rise of the tea party, did not publicly tout his work for the super PAC formed by a group of high-level Republican operatives who have broken ranks with the party over Trump's presidency until a recent interview with Vanity Fair. He was described in the article as :the creative mind, video editor, and, he said, sometimes narrating voice on many of the group's ads."

The 19th, a nonprofit news outlet, had emailed the Lincoln Project about a series of Twitter posts made by Howe in the years after Trump's election that deployed female anatomy as an insult, calling rivals a "vagina" or "twat," or in some instances using a more profane term.

They mean "c*nt."

"Based on these unacceptable and offensive posts, and those that came to light last week, Ben Howe is no longer affiliated with the Lincoln Project, effective immediately," Keith Edwards, the group's spokesman, said in a statement.

Last week, the Daily Dot resurfaced tweets from Howe that defended Darren Wilson, the police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. They were published by Talking Points Memo shortly after they were made in 2014 and have since been deleted.

Those comments were not #Woke enough and did not sufficiently bow and scrape to our new racial overlords, so he's been #cancelled.

Question:

Why is noted Confederacy Enthusiast Rick Wilson still permitted to grift from the Lincoln Project's list of marks?
