On MLK Day, #Breitbart.com’s John Nolte Links to Anti-MLK White Supremacist Site

Stormfront, brought to you by Breitbart.com

It’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and today at breitbart.com, editor John Nolte celebrates the civil rights legend’s birthday by launching an attack on Roots author Alex Haley, and linking to an anti-MLK hate site hosted by the white supremacists of stormfront.org:

ALEX HALEY: THE LANCE ARMSTRONG OF LITERATURE.

That link is at the bottom of this screenshot, labeled “the cover up.”

Here’s Google’s cache of the page John Nolte is using for a source; right at the bottom you can see “Hosted by Stormfront,” which to most people would be a red flag. These white supremacists somehow registered the domain name “martinlutherking.org.”

Their “Suggested Books” page features a book about Martin Luther King Jr.’s “plagiarism,” and an advertisement for the autobiography of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Yes, really.

The rest of the site is full of nauseatingly hateful content that I won’t quote here.

Stormfront is well-known as one of the web’s main centers of ugly racist hatred, but I guess John Nolte didn’t notice anything wrong when he linked to one of their sites. Apparently their very thin disguise was enough to fool Nolte.

He searched for an attack piece on Alex Haley for some weird right wing reason, and — imagine my surprise — found what he was looking for on a white supremacist hate site.

UPDATE at 1/21/13 6:06:33 pm

At about 6:02 pm Pacific, John Nolte edited the post to remove the link to the Stormfront site, replacing it with a link to loony Birther site American Thinker, with this update:

UPDATE: This post has been updated to remove a link to a 2002 “New York Post” story posted at an unacceptable site linked to in error. A new source has been added to the post.

Sure, just a harmless “error,” linking to a white supremacist site on MLK Day. Anyone could have done it.

Here’s a saved copy of Nolte’s original post at WebCite, just for the record.

Full Video: Obama’s Second Inaugural Speech Draws a Line on Climate Change

“We will respond to the threat of climate change”

Across the nation wingnut heads are a-poppin’ as President Obama’s second inauguration parade gets ready to start. The First Lady is rockin’ the bangs today, and the President gave a stirring speech, laying out a very progressive-sounding agenda for his second term: Obama’s Second Inaugural Speech.

Yep, he threw down the gauntlet, all right, but there’s a huge obstacle in the way of climate change action: a Republican Party that is utterly lost in a cloud cuckoo land of anti-science denial.

The Luddites of the right wing have totally convinced themselves that the world’s scientists are pulling an evil hoax on them; this delusion is fed and sustained by many millions of dollars worth of anti-science propaganda from a fossil fuel industry that benefits from the status quo. If President Obama is serious about taking action on this all-important issue, he’ll have to find a way to either reach these appallingly closed minds, or circumvent their efforts to sabotage him.

What Are the Kinds of Legal Problems Online Publishers Run Into Today? Here’s an Analysis
The great bulk of the casework has been corporate law advice such as formation, etc. and intellectual property advice.

Russ Campbell’s Blog: Bill C-23, Fair Elections Act Seems Now on Solid Ground
Now that a Sen­ate com­mit­tee has rec­om­mended nine changes to Bill C-23, Fair Elec­tions Act, the leg­is­la­tion seems pretty solid. And, since Pierre Poilievre has, ap­par­ently, in­di­cated pri­vately that he's open to changes, an amended ver­sion of the bill will likely be­come law by this sum­mer. We would prob­a­bly have got­ten to this point ear­lier had not the min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for the bill ...

What caused the disaster? We ...
