Attorney for Man Falsely Identified as #Charlottesville Attacker Says He’ll Go After Right Wing Websites

Jim Hoft and Chuck C. Johnson in the crosshairs
Law • Views: 44,155

Earlier today we published an article on the right wing bloggers (Jim Hoft and Chuck C. Johnson, who is NOT ME) who recklessly and dishonestly named the wrong person as the suspect in the Charlottesville car attack on anti-Nazi protesters. Tonight we can report that the man they framed has legal counsel — and his lawyer is planning to go after these website owners with “the full power of the law.”

Andrew Sommerman, a Dallas, Texas based attorney representing the man and his family, said in an interview Sunday night that they believe the Michigan man was targeted because his father owned the Dodge Challenger years ago before legally selling the vehicle. The son drove the father’s car before the sale, according to Sommerman.

Alternative conservative online commentators appeared to single the Michigan man out because of the perception he may have had something in common with the anti-racism protesters injured on Saturday. The man’s lawyer said he’s still investigating.

“There was a clear misidentification,” Sommerman said. “The motivation behind it, I don’t quite understand yet.”

The attorney who specializes in defamation cases said he planned to use the full power of the law against those who falsely claimed that his clients had anything to do with the fatal crash.

“I don’t think it’s careless,” he said. “I think it was their intent to try to muddle” the truth of what happened in Charlottesville.

Mr. Sommerman is quite correct; this was a very deliberate tactic often used by these bloggers. They rush to blame “leftists” whenever an attack like this takes place, knowing that their cooked up false stories will immediately spread through social media and poison the well of public discourse. Both Jim Hoft and Chuck C. Johnson are notorious for this.

And Hoft and Johnson are named specifically in this article at the Detroit Free Press:

The website GotNews​.com posted a story that “using internet sleuthing,” it reposted “evidence” about the Michigan man. But later, the site updated the post to say that “GotNews has retracted the article. GotNews regrets the error and apologizes” to the man and his family.

Another site, the Gateway Pundit, reprinted a tweet that named the Michigan man as the suspected driver. “This is just a report….. But look at the tweet below,” Gateway’s Jim Hoft wrote at 4:21 p.m. Saturday, naming the Michigan man in the headline.

But now that post has been removed from the Gateway website. The Free Press found a cached version of the posting online.

It should be fairly easy for Sommerman to establish a pattern of both Hoft and Chuck Johnson negligently reporting false stories.

“…The list of Johnson stories that have been proven wrong is long, but his greatest hits include:

— Falsely accusing a New York Times reporter of secretly posing for Playgirl (after that reporter, David D. Kirkpatrick, published a story that deflated a few Benghazi conspiracy theories).
— Erroneously reporting that former Newark mayor Cory Booker didn’t actually reside in Newark.
— Contributing reporting to the Daily Caller’s infamous story about New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez allegedly soliciting prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. The story turned out to be a complete fabrication, and may have even been planted by the Cuban government.

Again, the only silver lining to this catastrophe is that people are starting to take sides. They no longer longer look on “alt-right” or “white supremacist” simply as voices along the political spectrum but for what they are: hate-filled fascists who will not shrink from violence if they believe they can get away with it.

Clueless parents seem to be a common factor when young people commit some heinous act. After the Columbine massacre I was dumbfounded to learn that one of the killers had built and stored his arsenal of bombs in his room at home. I asked my mother if I could have hidden a cache of bombs in my
room when I was a teenager.
She said, “Ha! You couldn’t even hide a Playboy magazine!”
And all that time I thought my little brother had stolen it.

I was lucky. I used to keep my dope stash behind the encyclopedia set on the bookshelf in my room. One evening, me and my buddies were bored and out of stash and practiced rolling joints out of oregano.

Mom discovered the “stash” but I was able to prove that it was just oregano and we were just “goofing off”.

I got caught smoking a joint with a friend (who provided said joint) in my bedroom. Mom got home early from work, I wasn’t expecting her. She took the joint we were smoking and another joint my friend had rolled from him and drove him home. She came home - my dad wasn’t home from work yet - and took me outside on our deck. She crumbled the half-smoked joint in her hands and threw it in a flower pot and took out the fresh joint, and lit the motherfucker! She said “don’t tell your dad, I mean it!” I nodded in compliance. She smoke some of it, telling me between drags “you don’t get to smoke any of this, you’re grounded, give me your car keys, no video games for a month.” She smoked it for a stretch then put it out in a flower pot and said “that’s shitty weed, son.”

Creationism shows up in the strangest places. Here, in the Travel section of a Champaign, Illinois news outlet:

Travel/Ecuador, Part II: Miraculous Galapagos

[…]

On the wall of the Galapagos Legend were Darwin’s words: “As far as I can judge, I am not apt to follow blindly the lead of other men. I have steadily endeavoured to keep my mind free so as to give up any hypothesis, however much beloved (and I cannot resist forming one on every subject), as soon as facts are shown to be opposed to it.”

An imaginative mind can cook up all manner of hypotheses. Hence, the theory of evolution. And many are the people who have followed it — blindly.

A major flaw in the theory is that no evolutionist or scientist has ever produced organic from inorganic matter. Darwin thought that a one-cell organism is a simple creature. We now know otherwise.

When I was teaching, I’d have students tell me that they had banned their parents from entering their bedrooms, and their parents complied. No way that would have happened in my parents’ home. If I’d have tried to pull that on them, they would have told me to find another place to live and the scary thing was that I knew they meant it.

Yep. Screams fake. Not that I have pentested wingnut sites, but from word of mouth I’ve heard they’re generally poorly protected and configured, so it would not take an elite team to compromise a site, a determined and somewhat skilled skriptkiddie would suffice.
The use of all caps in the message screams fake also, as does the use of an article to “hack”. The Anonymous activists that target right-wing sites would have defaced the front page, maybe nuked the entire site or planted more than one article that take time to discover that they are planted.
What I think has happened is that their hosting provider has grown tired of complaints over email and DDoS attacks on the site. The latter can be a reason why they’ve decided to pull the plug, as one server in their racks can more than likely handle more than one site, so if there is big and persistent DDoS attack on the site, more than one customer will be affected.

It has happened at times, either directly or indirectly by the “team” which performs an attack having a reputation of being 1337 an0n.

Greets and saluts from the Resistance in the NYC metro area.

If it’s Monday, it must be Trump trying to deflect and bully from the fact that he’s a white supremacist looking to undo the black guy’s achievements. In fact, he’s attacking the CEO from Merck who stepped down from Trump’s economic council in protest over Trump’s refusal to condemn the terror attack in VA.

Trump has spent more energy attacking the CEO than he has in calling out the radical white supremacists who carried out the riots and injured dozens, plus the murder of one counter-protester at the hands of a Nazi.

Trump makes no bones about his actions or intentions. He sides with the Nazis and white supremacists. He pushes policies straight out of the white supremacist playbook.

If you have any doubt, take a look at his stance on immigration. He wants not only a shutdown of illegal immigration, but all legal immigration from places that aren’t dominated currently by white European Christians. That’s not an accident. His white nationalist/Nazi supporters love this crap because this is what they have long stood for.

Trump spends more energy attacking people who point out his bigotry than on the bigots who carried out a riot and terror attack in the US.

There’s absolutely no doubt that his response to this attack would have been totally different had it been a Muslim involved. He’d be the first to demand an immediate travel ban on all Muslims in/out of US and further monitoring of mosques, all while calling it radical Islamic terrorism. Note too that Trump wont demand to know where these Nazis and white supremacists radicalized.

These fascists radicalized online and after watching nothing but Fox News for decades all while hearing about how bad things are for white folks when minorities get the same rights they’ve taken for granted. That’s the line the GOP has spewed for decades too - this isn’t some fringe element here. It’s been part of the GOP party line. The GOP has been playing grievance politics for a long time and they’ve been the ones stoking racism and racial resentment, and their response has been to engage in voter suppression and undermining civil rights enforcement (see what they’ve done under Trump for more proof of the nexus and approval by the GOP of Trump’s tactics/moves thus far).

There are some right wing pundits who are trying to argue that GOPers that are now coming forward aren’t being received well by the likes of the NYT or other outlets for condemning Trump. Why did it take them so fucking long. They had ample evidence of Trump’s pandering to white supremacists and Nazis during the campaign.

They were silent then. They allowed this to metastasize further and also reinforces the fact that the GOP candidates (like Rubio/Cruz) didn’t want to alienate the very voters that were flocking to Trump because of his white supremacist/racist/bigoted views. Now, they think that they can run away from that earlier position and not be called out for their craven cowardice in the face of evil?

The GOP owns all of this.

The feds seized guns, gold and 320 pot plants. So why did a judge rule they can’t pursue marijuana charges?

Though brief, the amendment was meant to have a significant effect: It forbade the Department of Justice from using funds in a way that obstructed a state “from implementing their own state laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana.” Congress has renewed the prohibition each year since.

Until now, U.S. district judges had rejected attempts by defendants to argue that the amendment applied to their cases. In a case in Fresno involving a man convicted of illegally operating a marijuana cooperative, for example, a judge found the man had violated California’s medical marijuana law by selling marijuana for profit and therefore was fair game for federal prosecution.

Merck’s CEO is black. Merck’s CEO quit the panel because of Trump’s inability/refusal to call out the Nazis and white supremacists who rioted and led to the murder of a counter protester.

Trump found a way to attack Merck’s CEO with more strength/venom than he could muster against the Nazi horde he continues to pander to.

It’s not surprising nor shocking. This is all who Trump has ever been. He’s been a bigot for decades. This isn’t new. He wasn’t going to change.

Lots of Defense contractors on the list. They have a lot to lose if they anger Trump. Are they brave enough? Doubt it, but like I said before, this issue is not going away. Trump owns this. Reporters will be asking for a long time. I don’t think he’s going to do a lot of press conferences or public appearances in the near future.

THEY have a lot to lose by pissing Trump off? I’d say it’s quite the other way around: this is a list of the REAL power players in America: what is the Yam going to do if, say, the CEO of Lockheed or UT tell Trump to get bent, and follow Musk and Frazier off his Board? Issue an EO cancellling their DoD contracts? And award them to Skinhead Metalworks in East Pisspot, WV instead? Other than issuing nasty tweets, he’s got nothin’……

This is one of those things that makes my jaw drop when I read it. It really shows how different things are in America.

Toronto averages around 65 murders a year in a city of 2 1/2 million, and we think that is very bad. A murder rate matching Gary would have people leaving the city like refugees in a war. Pick up what you can carry and go!

Don’t be blinded by a bargain. The U.S. will witness its first total solar eclipse since 1918 next week — but it might be the last thing some Amazon customers see. The online retailer has warned those who purchased certain eclipse-watching glasses that using them might cause “permanent blindness.” The site was recently hit with a deluge of dubious eclipse-watching glasses, prompting its demand that sellers prove sourcing from “recommended” manufacturers. Those warned had apparently purchased glasses from companies that have yet to provide such verification, and Amazon’s promised refunds.

Upding for the bacon. I just finished curing my own slab o’bacon. Used Berkshire hog belly; six day cure with salt, brown sugar, black pepper, and pink salt for the nitrite. It was in the smoker at 175 deg for 3 hours with apple as the wood.

I have a couple of half-bellies in the freezer, I may need to dig one out now and do something with it.

I’m posting this from Bruges, Belgium. An hour and change from here is the city of Antwerp. That city may not be famous like London, Berlin, or Amsterdam but 135 years ago, a young German and his family left their home from there never to return. Their name? (My surname). They did not go to America to become white people, they went here to become Americans, the same reason why people leave El Salvador, Syria, or Mexico today or why Jews fled Czarist Russia, or why the Irish fled famine, or why millions of others left. I’m not better than you for having light colored skin. I just am. And I hate that too many people think something as superficial as skin determines a man’s worth. You see a newcomer, treat him or her as you’d want to be in a new land. You don’t need to understand every last detail about him but the one thing you need to is he like you is an individual trying to find his place in this crazy world of ours.

I posted this last night on Facebook. Got a lot of likes from friends, family, of all kinds of backgrounds.

re: #248 Belafon

I’m actually a little annoyed at this statement. We all know that “the White House” means the president and his administration.

i get that. and i didnt quote the entire context. their point being when the pres wants to be clear, he has no problem being clear:

What actually happened is that an unsigned email was sent to reporters in the traveling press pool saying that the president’s condemnation of the violence in Virginia also includes white supremacists, the KKK, and neo-Nazis. Whether the President, the Vice President, or any government official wrote the email is unclear. For all the reporters know, it could have been written by a summer intern. When Trump wants to make something clear, he generally tweets it.

Charlie Pierce, as usual, on the mark:

So when anybody, especially the president*, talks about what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend, from the Citronella Putsch on Friday night, to the violence on Saturday morning, to the graphic fulfillment of the philosophy behind these lunatic laws on Saturday afternoon, tells you that what happened in Virginia has anything to do with “polarization,” or that it is a problem equally shared by Both Sides, that person is trying preemptively to pick history’s pockets.

Every Republican who ever played footsie with the militias out west owns this bloodshed.

Every Republican who ever spoke to, or was honored by, the Council of Conservative Citizens and/or the League of the South owns this bloodshed.

Every Republican administration that ever went out of its way to hire Pat Buchanan, and every TV executive who ever cut him a check, and every Republican who voted for him in 1992, and everyone who ever has pretended his views differed substantially from the ones in the streets this weekend, owns this bloodshed.

Every Republican president—actually, there’s only one—who began a campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi, to talk about states rights, and who sent his attorney general into court to fight for tax exemptions for segregated academies, owns this bloodshed.

Every Republican politician who followed the late Lee Atwater into the woods in search of poisoned treasure owns this bloodshed.

Every conservative journalist who saw this happening and who encouraged it, or ignored it, or pretended that it wasn’t happening, owns this bloodshed.

Anderson Cooper nailed it. People will defend Trump for anything. I mean anything.

Trying to keep my cool in NYC, but it may not happen.

My congregation’s rabbi shared the following statement:

Movement Statement on Charlottesville, VA
August 2017 - Av 5777


In the aftermath of violent demonstrations by white supremacists and their sympathizers in Charlottesville, Virginia, resulting in 3 deaths and many injuries, the Rabbinical Assembly and the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism issued the following statement:

The Rabbinical Assembly is shocked and horrified by the violent demonstrations of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and their sympathizers in Charlottesville, Virginia this past Saturday which resulted directly in the deaths of one civilian and two state police officers and in many other serious injuries. We applaud the swift and effective actions of Mayor Mike Signer of Charlottesville and Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, as well as their appropriate condemnations of the bigotry, antisemitism and hatred that inspired the rally itself. Many leaders have taken the indispensable step of naming the dangerous philosophies and movements that united these demonstrators. These events have been rightly labeled as incidents of domestic terror by both Democrats and Republicans.

We call upon United States officials including President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to condemn neo-Nazi, white supremacist and alt-right movements by name. The repeated failure to do so by top U.S. officials has fueled their growth and poses an imminent threat to all Americans as Saturday’s violent rallies showed. History has demonstrated that where a country’s leaders fail to condemn these philosophies, violence and hatred can quickly and exponentially consume the fabric of civil society. Our leaders must act now. Let us continue to pray for and to work for the day when all shall “sit under his/her vine and fig tree and none shall make them afraid.”

Rabbi Philip Scheim, President, The Rabbinical Assembly
Rabbi Julie Schonfeld, CEO, The Rabbinical Assembly
Margo Gold, President, United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism
Rabbi Steven Wernick, CEO, United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism

This has already fallen on deaf ears. Trump wont call out his fellow travelers by name, and the AG is in thrall with the white supremacists and bigots too.

But this helps identify who wants to stand on the right side of history, morality, and ethics.

Fox’s Harris Faulkner reacts to Trump’s speech: “If the critics out there cannot accept anything ever, ever, ever, they’re not on our side as Americans. Shame on them.

Fuck off Harris. He’s not on our side. He’s the one who praised Putin more than anyone. You don’t get to question my Americanism you right wing pile of FNC inbred shit.

There was also the time when antifa occupied the nature reserve for like a month and wouldn’t pay their land grazing fees.

re: #417 Mike Lamb

Why give him credit for anything? There’s only one right answer here: immediate, forceful condemnation, followed by a more detailed statement that fleshes out the immediate condemnation. It’s a total fail.

Its the “Trump Tango”. First Trump signals his white nationalist base that he has their back, then he grudgingly walks it back a bit to give Republicans some political cover.

Lotsa libertarian dudebros over at Google.

Hopefully the incident with the anti-diversity memo is teaching them that free expression of racism is something they shouldn’t support.

its really quite simple and godaddy has paved the way

google is not a utility
no one has a right “to their service”, though i havent read their TOS
and there are many other options, like hosting yourself

and google should be loud and clear - as everyone else should. you’re not wanted here.

OTOH - watch - just watch this get used as a reverse cake bakery thing
(yes i know it’s different for lots of legit/legal reasons. watch anyway)

[Embedded content]”Trump hits 34%” doesn’t convey the full story. It’s “Trump somehow hits 34% without a recession, a military disaster, a gas crisis, etc”

its just that he and his team are really really bad at this.
with each new thing, they find the way to handle it absolutely wrong

you’d think one of them would have just binge watched the west wing by now

Of course they will. I’ve already seen wingnuts say “Should a Jewish baker be forced to bake a cake for Nazis?”

Oh wait, that wasn’t them.

Why do I get the feeling that “antifa” is this generation’s equivalent of the “Communist agitators” popular with a prior generation of wingnuts as a handy boogeyman to try to discredit any overt public opposition to prejudiced RW policies? The same constant references to a shadowy, anonymous movement of violent extremist (left-wing) radicals: well-financed by equally shadowy “globallist” sources, and always ready to physically assault any “real Americans” for exercising their rights of “free speech”, and who almost never get “called out” by the “mainstream” media or politicians. Myself, I think those “antifa fighters” don’t get “called out” because they either don’t exist, or exist in such small numbers as to be functionally irrelevant; but that’s never stopped RWNJs from hyperventilating over straw boogeymen before, so what else is new?

If you’re still here, you’ll love (hate) this—-perhaps the most idiotic comment yet on Charlottesville—from everybody’s weird uncle, Corey Stewart:

There’s no reason to apologize for some nutcases that show up in Charlottesville. We have nothing to do with them in the Republican Party. They’re not conservatives. In fact, when you think about it, this is the far, far, far left. These are people, they believe the government should control people and stymie free speech.

Not just the left…not just the far left…not just the far, far left…but the far, far, far left.

Yikes. What an asshole.
