Chuck C. Johnson Sneaks Onto Twitter Again, Using an Account Claiming to Be Associated With the Reagan Foundation
Yesterday I got a tip from a friend that cyberstalker Chuck C. Johnson had bragged on his private Facebook page that he now has “access” to a Twitter account with 23,000 followers. A screenshot:
As you may recall, Chuck C. Johnson was recently permanently banned from Twitter, and tried to re-register several accounts, all of which were immediately suspended as well.
Well, he’s back again. Lo and behold — here’s a Twitter account with 23,000 followers that has suddenly started tweeting about the same sorts of things that interest Chuck Johnson, including attacking Deray McKesson and tweeting links to white supremacists and VDARE.
If you look through this person’s timeline you’ll see many of the same obsessions for which Johnson is infamous; for example, here are two tweets to white supremacist “weev” (Andrew Auernheimer):
Hey, sorry about being senile and signing the law that wrongly jailed you, @rabite. My bad.
@rabite most transparent administration ever and if you doubt it they’ll jail you.
Here’s a tweet suggesting that Obama didn’t write his autobiography — another conspiracy theory often floated by our boy Chuck:
One of Ted Cruz’s friends told me he wrote his book, unlike our current president. I wrote my own speeches (mostly) so I approve.
And here’s a tweet that actually links to Chuck Johnson’s horrible blog, to a post in which you’ll find several tweets by… @RonReaganLives.
This account claims to be officially affiliated with the Ronald Reagan Foundation in Simi Valley, with a board of trustees that includes Rupert Murdoch, Peggy Noonan, Nancy Reagan, and many other well-known conservative figures.
I wonder how they feel about their name being used by someone who retweets links to outright white nationalist websites, and holds conversations with outright white supremacists — all in violation of Twitter’s Terms of Service?
(Note: I’ve saved screenshots of all these tweets and more, in case they suddenly get deleted.)
And sure enough — whoever’s running this account just deleted the tweet about Deray McKesson posted above.
But here’s the screenshot, because the Internet never forgets:
An anonymous source has now confirmed that Chuck is “definitely” using this account.
