Jim Hoft Plagiarized a White Supremacist Hate Site for His Latest Race-Baiting Post

The Dumbest Man on the Internet adds plagiarism to his resumé
Wingnuts • Views: 30,603

In today’s episode of the Dumbest Man on the Internet, we find Jim Hoft, the Gateway Pundit, blatantly plagiarizing the website of the Council of Conservative Citizens, a white supremacist hate group that sprang out of the “White Citizens Councils” formed in the 1950s to fight against school desegregation in Southern states.

When I saw Hoft tweet the link to his post this morning, I had a hunch he might have lifted it from the CCC website without attribution, because he’s used them as sources before, and because this is their racist style. And sure enough, still on their front page, there was the evidence.

Here’s Hoft’s post; note the title: Cops Shoot 18 Year-Old Kansas Teen 16 Times - Media Ignores Story Because He’s White (Video) | the Gateway Pundit

First, the idea that the media “ignored the story because he’s white” is laughably easy to disprove; a Google News search for this poor teenager’s name shows that the media didn’t “ignore” it at all: Joseph Jennings Kansas.

Now, here’s a screenshot of Jim Hoft’s page, because he has a long-standing practice of editing and deleting things when he’s caught:

And here’s a screenshot of the Council of Conservative Citizens’ page (Google cache link); notice that Hoft lifted both videos and the photograph of Joseph Jennings, and Hoft’s title is very similar:

Although the title of Hoft’s post is not a direct copy of the white supremacists’ title, the caption for that photograph is nearly word-for-word plagiarism — he just changed “media doesn’t care” to “media ignores story:”

The white supremacist photo and caption:

Hoft’s photo and caption:

Busted again, Jim.

He dug up a week-old article at Raw Story and included it in his post, apparently to hide his real source, but that photo caption is irrefutably lifted straight from the CCC site. (By the way, what looks like a link to “KMBC” in Hoft’s caption is actually a broken link; it doesn’t lead to KMBC.)

And this is far from the first time Jim Hoft has gotten his stories from white supremacists; see:

Racist Source on Conservative Blog: Coincidence or Custom? | Riverfront Times

This is the guy whose posts are often cited all over the right wing blogosphere, and often end up on Drudge Report and Fox News: an unregenerate racist who steals material from white supremacist sites, now without attribution — probably because he’s been caught posting links to them before.

The gorilla is on an island,eats bananas and has a good time all day long. He plays out there in the bushes. Some Americans find out about the gorilla and they hear how BIG he is - you know.They're very impressed with the size of the beast. So they catch the gorilla & they stick him in a boat & bring him back to the US. They show him off to everybody & make a bunch of money. ...Then they kill him ! -- The song King Kong.1968 tour Wisconsin.
