Raw Story is a somewhat popular click bait site for smug liberal millennials who seek constant reinforcement for their juvenile, therapeutic “political” ideology. It is a fellow traveler of such click bait dumpsters as Buzzfeed, Upworthy, and Salon. It exists purely to attack the phantom enemies of the leftist establishment, specifically Republicans and conservative Christians. A daily sampling of the leading headlines on Raw Story reveal their obsession with casting conservatives and Christians (one and the same in their minds) as vicious bigots out to persecute homosexuals and Muslims and impose some sort of theocracy on America (this absurd conspiracy theory is a staple of the establishment left).
Recently Raw Story published a story about an obscure evangelical Christian preacher, Rick Wiles, who expressed sentiments that the Ebola virus might by God’s way of ridding America of homosexuals and atheists. The notion is of course absurd, but no serious person has likely heard of the preacher, much less given any sort of regard to his silly fantasies.
