Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak Responds

Land of denial
Wingnuts • Views: 33,271

It’s pretty revealing to see how breitbart.com’s editor-in-chief Joel Pollak reacts when the absolutely blatant racism and paranoia of his commenters is exposed. This isn’t a surprise to him, of course — breitbart.com’s articles are specifically targeted at inciting this type of racism and whiny right wing victimhood, and the commenters never fail to respond with torrents of hatred directed at African Americans, liberals, gays, and especially President Obama and his wife.

At some point, you have to realize that this isn’t a coincidence — it’s a business model.

Our latest post quoting these comments was: Yet Another Deluge of Racist Hatred and Calls for Genocide at Breitbart.com. After it appeared yesterday at LGF, Joel Pollak responded on Twitter:

That last tweet is especially interesting, because as LGF reader Gus pointed out yesterday, one of the frequent commenters at breitbart.com goes by the name “BigBoa.” Yesterday, BigBoa posted this comment:

Thousands of whites are being beaten and slaughtered and raped by these savages every year. At exactly what point do you consider it to be out of control?

The mighty Boa says don’t wait, don’t be late, and don’t hesitate. Don’t wait until it is YOUR wife, YOUR mother, YOUR daughter, YOUR son, husband, father or friend that falls victim to these beasts.

The white community remained almost completely silent while the race pimps held their marches and protests and issued bounties on men not wanted by police and distributed “wanted:dead or alive” posters. Instead of contacting every attorney general, congressman and governor and telling them to put a stop to this lynch mob or else. As long as they fear the savages more than they do the whites, it will continue and it will get worse. Look at the dozens of attacks of savages on whites JUST SINCE Martin was shot. And not a word of it in the media, no whites protesting, no threats to stop it….

The blood of innocent white people not only lies on the hands of the savages, it is also on the hands of all whites who fall victim to “white guilt” or remain apathetic hoping it will all somehow just magically disappear…

The interesting part is that “BigBoa” used to post at the ugly neo-Nazi hate site Vanguard News Network, under the name “Rev. Big Boa.” Here’s a Google search for his comments. And here’s a list of comments posted by “BigBoa” on Disqus comment systems (the system used at breitbart.com) on many sites. A few quotes:

Close quarters…. Shotguns. Lots of buckshot. Don’t forget. They’ll be crawling through the windows and the doors. Slugs for when just the fro is showing…. It’ll explode like a pumpkin…..

[…]

Idiot? He’s absolutely right.
Better watch what side of the tracks you’re on when the cleansing of this nation begins….
Wiggers will be fair game too….

[…]

It pains the mighty Boa to say this, but their blood is not only on the hands of all the race pimps like O’Bozo, Sharpton, etc,,, it is also on the hands of the white race.
These thugs comprise roughly 10 percent of the nation. The ONLY reason they get away with what they do is because people are afraid of being called racists and thus let them do whatever they want without consequence. The mighty Boa was arguing with a woman earlier who said “whites won’t let this go on. They’ll take care of it if it gets out of control”…..after listing off numerous cases and pointing out that THOUSANDS of whites are beaten, raped and murdered EVERY YEAR by these savaged, the mighty Boa asked just exactly what was her idea of “out of control”?
Do no wait, do not be late, and do not hesitate. Do not wait until it is YOUR mother, YOUR wife, YOUR daughter, YOUR father, husband, son or friend that falls victim to these savages. And make no mistake. That is EXACTLY what they are.

And “BigBoa” is just one of many, many racist haters posting comments at breitbart.com, as we’ve illustrated with post after post quoting their ugly remarks.

But Joel Pollak says it’s a “false racist charge,” and the “real racists” are African Americans and others who point out this hateful stuff.

I’d like to ask Joel to explain the difference between the comments at breitbart.com and the comments at any neo-Nazi hate site, but I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t get an answer.

What's absolutely fascinating/appalling with people like Pollak is the childlike behavior.

The denial when caught; the non-sequitir taunts; the refusal to accept the truth when it disrupts your limited worldview; it's right out of a 6 year old's playbook.

It's interesting that it is Breitbart.com writers, including Pollak, that engage in a large number of false accusations of racism, incl. antisemitism. Perhaps Pollak should listen to his own words?

15 Charles Johnson  Fri, Apr 6, 2012 10:41:05am

One of the top headlines right now at Breitbart.com: WAR ON CHILDREN: LIBERALS ATTACK SCOTT WALKER'S KIDS.

They quote Walker:

I had thousands of people bussed in front of my home in Wauwatosa where I've got two high school sons living, and I've got parents in [their] 70s. At one point last year, my 16 year old and my mother in her 70s were at a grocery store and got yelled at. I've had my kids targeted on Facebook; we've had all those sorts of things.

So, in truth, they have no idea whether the people who yelled at Walker's son and mother were "liberals." They completely made up the headline out of nothing.

A presentation by WND’s Jerome Corsi to a standing-room-only crowd has convinced a New Jersey lawmaker and a local sheriff that the issue of President Obama’s eligibility for office “will have to be addressed.”

“The easiest way to put this to rest is to have the records unsealed,” Morris County Sheriff Ed Rochford told the Huffington Post in an email following the April 4 event in Morristown. “Mr. Corsi made a very convincing argument that President Obama may not be a natural born citizen of the United States.”

Corsi on "John F*ing Commie Kerry": "After he married TerRAHsa, didn't John Kerry begin practicing Judiasm? He also has paternal grandparents that were Jewish. What religion is John Kerry?"

No, they didn't. That's because most politicians with any self-awareness or self-preservation knew that accusing the United States of murdering its own citizens on 9/11 was not only fucking stupid, but political suicide.

It's much easier to court the bigot vote by "asking questions" about President Obama's birth certificate. Racism has always worked in politics.

To use a term like that borders on unpatriotic.”

Pollak is not directly connected to reality, given his pretense that Breitbart did not defame Shirley Sherrod:

59 wrenchwench  Fri, Apr 6, 2012 11:15:10am

The 'Actual Truth' is a collection of consequences from years of historical systemic racism without mentioning the context and the causes, such as there are more blacks in prison than whites or more blacks are on welfare than are whites.

Here are a couple of the most offensive passages, IMO:

What is fundamentally tragic here is that these two young males first encountered each other as provocations. Males are males, and threat often evokes a narcissistic anger that skips right past reason and into a will to annihilate: "I will take you out!" There was a terrible fight. Trayvon apparently got the drop on George Zimmerman, but ultimately the man with the gun prevailed. Annihilation was achieved.

...

In fact Trayvon's sad fate clearly sent a quiver of perverse happiness all across America's civil rights establishment, and throughout the mainstream media as well. His death was vindication of the "poetic truth" that these establishments live by.

...

No matter the facts—whether Trayvon Martin was his victim or his assailant—George Zimmerman will also never be entirely redeemed.

Barton: Schools Don't Teach History ... Because of Evolution

Yesterday, Barton was a on "In The Market with Janet Parshall" where he spent the entire hour discussing his book and making many of the claims we have heard him make before. But Barton did make one interesting assertion when he was asked why public school textbooks don't teach about the Founding Fathers and he blamed it on evolution:

We've taken the evolution thing and kept it as a science debate, and it's not. Evolution [versus] creation is not a science, it is a worldview. If I take evolution and say you know, man's always evolving, moving forward, then I've got to say well, then we need a Constitution that evolves and moves forward with us. And so we get a living Constitution whereby who cares what the Constitution says, here's what we think about Obamacare or gay marriage or anything else.

If I take and apply [the evolutionary worldview] to history, I'd have to say that in public schools, history is the most worthless subject there is if you believe evolution because, if we are evolving, what can we learn from two hundred years ago? My gosh, those guys didn't even have internet back then! They rode horses; let's get up with the real century. And so under that worldview of evolution, history has got to be the first casualty. And it is, quite frankly.

This man is a fucking idiot.

Anyone with a daughter should add one more point to "the talk". Black men are more sexually agressive than white men. I am not talking about rape, but about the attitude that women are seen as conquests, not as people. And this is more true if the woman is not black. And if the woman gets pregnant, black men are more likely to tell her she is on her own.

Why not just tell your children, "Blacks are dangerous, if you must have contact be civil but if at all possible avoid them?" Simple. Direct. True. And far more protective of your children than feeding them a lot of gutless nuance.

re: #58 jaunte

Sounds like a post facto rationale to build a business around attracting commenters who want a friendly place to dump racist bile.

Pollak is not directly connected to reality, given his pretense that Breitbart did not defame Shirley Sherrod:
"Then there was David Frum, who ought to return his law degree to Harvard after writing in the Daily Beast about Andrew’s “defamation of Shirley Sherrod.”

A thought: if Sherrod wins the case, what are the odds of that knocking Breitbart.com offline?

I hate to bring that notion up as it treads dangerously close to the notion of trying to shut down speech you don't like. I guess I like the idea of Breitbart's slandering of Sherrod posthumously blowing up in his organization's face.

Plus, it gives racists one less place to hang out. I'm sure Fox Nation and Free Republic could take up the slack.

We had a training jet crash in my city several decades ago just missing an eight story old folks home. The pilot staying in the jet long enough to miss a subdivision and the retirement home, bringing it down on railway tracks. The pilot didn't survive.

Had one hit a residential neighborhood a few years back, pilot stayed as long as he could, but the crash killed a mother and infant when it came down.

Word has it that one of the wings was spewing flames and came off just before the crash, which makes it sound like airframe fatigue.

Charles Pierce:
Augusta and Reverse Journalism at The Times

You may have noticed that Augusta National and its boss, fake good-old-boy Billy Payne, has gotten its green polyester-pantsed ass in a crack now that a woman named Virginia Rometty is running IBM, and the boss of IBM traditionally gets a membership into Confederacy Acres, but Virginia Rometty lacks the essential penis, so the club's retrograde policy toward half the human race gets another airing. Only this time, it's not just some bothersome activist that they can ignore, it's a dues-fully-paid member of the corporate elite.

Confronted with these facts, New York Times golf writer Karen Crouse opined that she'd rather not cover the Masters until it moves its withered hindquarters out of the 1850's, thanks. This obvious — and anodyne — opinion apparently was enough to get Crouse in dutch:

122 Patricia Kayden  Fri, Apr 6, 2012 1:50:05pm

Continue to expose the racist maggots, Charles. Since they've embraced racism, let them hang by their own noose.

What's the benefit to Breitbart and other rightwingers to embrace open racism? The White population is slowly shrinking. And while the majority of Whites still vote Republican, a growing number are moving away from the homophobia, racism, and sexism that Republicans seem to espouse. Seems like a losing strategy to me.

123 joe90  Fri, Apr 6, 2012 5:43:47pm

Pollak strikes me as being not unlike the Jaapies who've arrived in NZ bringing their Broederbond racism with them even though he was part of the early chicken run.
