Hate Group Leader Robert Spencer Now Featured Writer at PJ Media: The Backstory

They’ve grown accustomed to his hate
Wingnuts • Views: 27,936

When I worked for PJ Media several years back, anti-Muslim hateblogger Robert Spencer used to frequently email me, begging to be included in PJ Media’s advertising program and have his articles published at the site.

At the time, Roger Simon and the real decision maker of PJ Media, investor Aubrey Chernick, were very, very nervous about Spencer, and worried that his brand of bigotry might negatively affect advertising sales. So they just kept putting off Spencer with excuses about his “non-profit” status being a problem.

Well, now that the right wing has gone completely cuckoo, associating with hate group leaders and anti-Muslim bigots is apparently no longer a problem for PJ Media, because today we discover that Robert Spencer — one of the main inspirations for Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik — has, at last, had his wish granted, and his hate speech and incitement to violence is now regular fare: PJ Media » The Media’s Double Standard for Muslims.

(I’m not going to bother quoting from this; it’s the same whiny anti-Muslim garbage Spencer endlessly recycles.)

Note that Spencer’s article coincides with the announcement that he and loony Pamela Geller are going to participate in a demonstration in Stockholm with the violent far right thugs known as the English Defence League.

I suppose this is another indicator of how far to the right the conservative movement has swung, when a site like Pajamas Media, conceived as a place where left and right could meet and engage in rational debate, has become a hangout for the worst kind of gutter bigotry.
