Publications like The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and The Weekly Standard once carried Cashill's byline, but ever since he tumbled down the Tea Party/birther/conspiracy-nut rabbit hole, he has been persona non grata in the mainstream media. (The Pitch profiled Cashill in 2011.)
In addition to penning pro-murderer tomes, Cashill is a regular contributor to WND, an online gathering place for belligerent conservatives. His most recent post is an attack on a columnist at the University Daily Kansan, the KU student newspaper. In it, the 65-year-old Cashill bravely takes a student columnist, Will Webber, to task for recounting racist conversations he overheard while at a dinner for Ann Coulter in Kansas City.
Cashill's blistering takedown, which exceeds 850 words, is full of damning facts about Webber. For instance, did you know that most of Webber's Facebook friends are white, even though Webber claims to be Hispanic? And that Webber grew up in Prairie Village? Connect the dots, people.
Cashill wraps up by comparing Webber to "a long line of dissemblers, most proximately The New Republic's Steven Glass and the New York Times' Jayson Blair." So yeah - still believe the words of this student newspaper columnist you'd never heard of before reading Jack Cashill's weird column about him on a website for demented conservatives? Area high school Young Democrats, you're next!
