Congressman Dennis Rehberg’s political brinkmanship and refusal to compromise to avert a national economic crisis has brought a barrage of constituent email that crashed the congressional website and switchboard, a scathing editorial from Montana’s most-read newspaper, and hundreds of critical Facebook posts from the people of Montana.
Problem is, his actions are so ridiculous that the only people he could find to come to his defense are the Moonies. In his angry rant against the Billings Gazette for daring to point out the problems with his actions, Rehberg cites…wait for it…the Washington Times. Not familiar with this paper? You wouldn’t be unless maybe you were a Moonie.
The Washington Times is a daily broadsheet newspaper published in Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States. It was founded in 1982 by Unification Church founder Sun Myung Moon, and until 2010 was owned by News World Communications, an international media conglomerate associated with the church….
In July 2010 international leaders of the Unification Church issued a letter protesting the direction the Times was taking and urging closer ties between it and the church. In August 2010, a deal was made to sell the Times to a group more closely related to the church. Editor-in-chief Sam Dealey said that this was a welcome development among the Times’ staff.
