You never laugh at another’s misfortune… but then you find out it is Vox Day (Theodore Beale) and his minions… https://t.co/R9Gi5nI9s3

If (to paraphrase Sir Terry Pratchett) you choose to filter that pour through your kidneys first, for best purity, well…
An attempt to make a right-wing superhero movie has ended in disaster, with $1 million missing in China and a participant facing a federal indictment.
“I wouldn’t count on us getting the money back,” Theodore Beale, a far-right blogger known as “Vox Day,” admitted to his fans and investors in a video last week.
This isn’t how Beale’s followers thought their investments would go in 2019 when they started contributing to fund a film based on a Confederacy-themed superhero comic book character created by Beale. A trailer promoting the proposed movie, Rebel’s Run, featured the character Rebel fighting a global police force hunting down freethinking conservatives…
The trailer has been scrubbed from Vimeo, but apparently ‘Rebel’ is a Wonder Woman rip-off in Daisy Duke cut-offs, because I guess there was already a surfeit of not-at-all-homoerotic steroid-enhanced male cartoon characters.
