In Which Glenn Greenwald Smears Me by Citing a Faked Graphic at a Far Right Hate Site

Prize-winning journalism

It’s been almost a week since I wrote anything about the Mighty Glenn Greenwald, but it seems the Mighty G has been thinking of me, despite the wonderful awards he’s been receiving, because today he tweeted a link to the blog run by the extreme right wing Muslim-hating weirdos who’ve been stalking me online for more than seven years.

The giveaway that Greenwald’s tweet was aimed at me is pretty clear — all you have to do is read that blog. It’s entirely dedicated to non-stop hatred of yours truly, with all kinds of genocide-advocating hate speech and violent rhetoric everywhere. The people who hang out there are the absolute bottom of the Internet barrel; many of them were banned from LGF for doing exactly what you see them doing at their new home. And they have been relentlessly stalking, harassing and concocting hateful conspiracy theories about not just me, but anyone who posts at LGF or communicates with me on Twitter, for years.

When my friend George Duke died, they went to websites with articles about George and posted disgusting comments pretending to be me. These are the people Greenwald is linking to.

This is also the blog that conspired with another Greenwaldian hero, Barrett Brown, to out my private emails, along with anti-Muslim hate group leader Pamela Geller. After Brown decided to start hating me, he hung out extensively at this website.

And it’s the blog that has posted numerous videos and articles denying the genocide committed by Serbians against Muslims, and once posted a video praising the infamous racist book The Turner Diaries that inspired terrorist Timothy McVeigh.

And the graphic Greenwald wants you to look at is a fake — an altered version of a Think Progress graphic showing Norwegian anti-Muslim terrorist Anders Breivik’s citations of right wing writers and organizations in his “manifesto.” The altered graphic, to which they added my name in a very deceptive manner, with a bright green bar to make sure you didn’t miss it:

And the actual graphic that appeared at Think Progress, which does not have my name in it, of course:

Notice the difference? Here they are side by side. Maybe that “StinkProgress” logo should have been a red flag?

If you actually read Breivik’s sick manifesto, you’ll discover that he clearly hated me and considered me a “traitor” to his deranged “cause,” and included numerous articles from anti-Muslim bloggers attacking and vilifying me. And not only that; all of the “citations” Greenwald attempts to attribute to Breivik are actually contained in blog posts written by other authors, mostly “Fjordman.” The fact is that Breivik himself never wrote a single word about me or about LGF.

To really drive home the point about the kinds of sources this Pulitzer Prize-winning “journalist” believes are credible, here are some past LGF posts about the “Diary of Daedalus” stalking site; I usually ignore them, but this case is so egregious it had to be answered.

And just to follow up, the Mighty Greenwald has now admitted he did read that post and knew exactly what kind of site he was linking to:
