Photographs published this week by an anti-racist website show the late Andrew Breitbart, a leading figurehead among mainstream conservatives, and his onetime protégé James O’Keefe - whose undercover videos are credited with causing the demise of the community organizing group ACORN - rubbing elbows with young white nationalists at two different right-wing conferences.
The pictures are noteworthy because Breitbart, who died of a heart attack in March 2012, and O’Keefe had been adamant that they had nothing to do with the conference attendees - and vocally attacked anyone who suggested otherwise.
Instead, the photos published by the anti-racist organization One People’s Project showed O’Keefe posing with numerous members of the white-nationalist group Youth for Western Civilization at a forum organized by the Robert Taft Club. Another shot shows Breitbart hobnobbing with YWC leader Matthew Heimbach, who has recently came out as a full-fledged Nazi, at an Americans for Prosperity gathering.
The present Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) debate, as political debates tend to do, has produced much ugliness from the organized nativist movement, both anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim alike. While both rail on separate-but-not-mutually-exclusive talking points, the anti-Muslim sphere has begun focusing more and more prevalently on the issue of immigration.
While hocking baseless, packaged fears regarding how religious and ethnic demographics come to distort our national character beyond recognition, the players that comprise this anti-Muslim sphere of nativism are revealing a primary motivation for their work: the preservation of “the native” over the welcoming of “the new.” Such inclinations are regularly assigned to groups within the established anti-immigrant movement, but less regularly to their counterpart.
It’s not uncommon for anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim leaders to cross-contaminate, with many of their collaborations existing as poorly kept secrets. Clearly, core sentiments about “outsiders” contribute to their mutual toxicity.
A sample of comments from Breitbart, but HURR HURRR!!! DEMOCRATS IS TEH REAL RACISTS!!11!!!

You mean an organization funded by radical leftists for the purpose of massaging information to stop voters from actually knowing what is going on? Check your history, in Germany groups likes the SPC were set up by NAZI party agents to help Hitler organize book burnings and send Jews to concentration camps through demonizing those the regime thought could pose opposition to his policies. Not surprising at all America’s left has resurrected this same approach.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is a sham. Its very foundation is corrupt.

No, just the majority of Dem voters need handouts. Half of the blacks in this country receive foodstamps, in California 60% of legal immigrants receive welfare and 80% of the illegal aliens in Cali receive welfare. The Dems have been buying votes with welfare payments since the “war on poverty” began with LBJ- curiously the estimated $17,000,000,000,000 spent in the war on poverty equals the current debt of the nation. If the dems didn’t pay off their voters they wouldn’t win another election, ever. Who do you think pays for the 350,000 anchor babies??? It costs $250,000 to raise a single child to adulthood and then “family reunification” becomes 70% of immigration policy. 25% of those incarcerated in our federal penetentiaries are illegal aliens. Is that specific enough for you? If not, I could continue for another hour.

What is more racist and what is responsible for more murders and other deaths than the KKK and American Nazi movement combined by an order of magnitude, is lib-tard racist policies that keep minorities in poverty instead of helping them to make lives for themselves. Unfortunately this is the result of the Democratic Party being the long time historical home of the KKK.

I owe a great debt to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, whom I met in 2009 through the Republican Jewish Coalition and who helped me when I ran for Congress in 2010. So it is with some reluctance that I criticize his heartfelt remarks in Queens last weekend, where he enlisted the Jewish American experience in service of the cause of immigration reform, now pending before the House after passage in the Senate.
Cantor recalled his own family’s path to Richmond, Virginia, through economic struggle and across the lines of religious and racial discrimination. He did not endorse any particular legislation, but given the context of his address—part of a faith-oriented “pilgrimage” of members of Congress from both parties to immigration sites, timed to coincide with the ongoing immigration debate—his broader purpose was unmistakable.
It is worth noting that Jewish American immigration to the United States was almost entirely legal. There is almost universal consensus in America today that legal immigration, particularly of skilled immigrants, is a good and desirable thing; the main debate is about illegal immigration—how to stop it, and what to do with illegal immigrants already in the U.S. There are few relevant parallels in the Jewish American experience.
In addition, the massive wave of Jewish immigration in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was driven, in part, by aggressive persecution in Eastern Europe. Yes, many came in search of economic opportunity, just as most of today’s immigrants do. But many came to avoid the Tsarist pogroms and broad discrimination, and many of those who failed to leave, or their children, would later perish in the Holocaust.
The fact that America’s doors were closed after the passage of the Immigration Act of 1924 (one of the few dark moments of the Coolidge presidency) did contribute to the disaster in Europe. That experience has led Jews of all political stripes, quite rightly, to support laws providing asylum for refugees fleeing political and religious persecution. But that is not what is at issue as the U.S. confronts today’s immigration problems.
Today, immigration is driven not just by economic opportunity (which has been flagging throughout the Obama “recovery,” leading to lower illegal immigration from Mexico) but also by the attraction of welfare-state programs in education, health care, and poverty relief. Jewish immigrants to America included many poor people and a few notorious miscreants, but few expected to go on the dole: there wasn’t much of one.
Just a sample of the comments:

It’s a typical Leftist tactic, use a race bludgeon to shut down dissent. I thought I was at MSNBC or the Huff and Puffington Post when I heard Rubio’s obscene statement that it would be racist to not amnesty 35 year old anchor babies by the millions. (Especially since his ancestors were Conquistadors, and African slavery began in Mexico and spread to Caribbean).
I suspect Karl Rove suggested it.
Then white boy Paul Ryan needed something, he went with being Catholic.
Now Cantor. And Cantor wants to shut us up with his Judaism and deflect from the fact that he was bribed.
Let’s face it, we have 4 (or more) “Spokesmodels for Slavery.”
Cantor, Rubio, Boehner and Paul are good looking, well spoken and therefore some big businesses are paying for them to put a soft face to 50 million slaves for them.

Cantor has equated the traditions of his religion with illegal alien lawbreakers. In order to pander to illegals and their supporters,during his idiotic amnesty tour, he has played the Jewish card(dragging his religion into the fray).Oozing a smug self-righteousness, Cantor prattled on spouting pc platitudes in surplus.What a despicable amnesty apologist.Boehner and Cantor are sellouts and traitors.The fool even hung out on his “tour” with the race hustler and ultra-liberal,Luis Guiterrez.The darling of LA RAZA(the race).Cantor is a rank embarrassment.

Yeah, that’s a smart thing to do, link the mass migration of the third world to Jews. That’s what David Duke has been saying for decades. They (the Jews) are seen in some quarters as people who like to keep themselves pure, but encourage migration and intermixing between other groups.

Eric Cantor - walk like a Commie Stalinist, IS a Commie Stalinist.
He is a proven intelligent person who can make a budget - he KNOWS what this will do to America.
America cannot help anyone when it is totally demolished, and he knows it.
He is without excuse for supporting the demise of America. Certainly NOT with IGNORANCE.
He just hasn’t had enough HARVEST come back to him in his life as yet. He is DEPRIVED of his own Harvests. He is starving for his own HARVESTS. He needs to eat of the fruit of the seeds HE HIMSELF has planted.

AMERICA MUST INCREASE its rates of acceptance of NON-ISLAMICS because already ISLAM is about to confiscate ALL OF EUROPE and even CANADA for itself due to their EXCESSIVE IMMIGRATION of MUSLIMS whose dirty little secret is that they do NOT have to KILL anybody to DEFEAT any DEMOCRACY, only out PROCREATE the natives until they have reached MAJORITY status and then PULL THE LEVERS at the polls. THIS is why Anders Breivik went crazy in Norway and why there are riots in Sweden and on and on. The happenings in ALGERIA in 1991 and EGYPT this year instruct you that, WHEN ISLAM DOES vote itself into power, YOU’RE NOT gonna like it if you are INFIDEL and, you’re NOT gonna like it ENOUGH so that you support a MILITARY COUP to get RID OF IT. In EUROPE the ‘END’ for them will come between 2050 and 2075 although the OPTIONS will extend beyond the tried-and-true COUP to include the MASS FORCED EMMIGRATIONS of MUSLIMS and the CIVIL WARS against them too so, we have a LOT to look forward to……and, to PLAN against.

You should be in Florida (where I moved a few years ago). A few years ago, my high school daughter told me she was studying the Holocaust. I thought, “Okay”, but I thought she meant THAT DAY or, possibly, that WEEK. Nooooooooooooo, she had to “study” it for a MONTH.
My youngest daughter (5th grade) recently was asking me a bunch of questions about Hitler. I thought, “She sure has learned a lot about him”, and asked her if she knew who Joseph Stalin was. No, she said, but quickly added, “But I know about Ann Frank!”
It goes on and on and on.
Believing they are losing the messaging war with progressives, a group of prominent conservatives in Washington—including the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and journalists from Breitbart News and the Washington Examiner—has been meeting privately since early this year to concoct talking points, coordinate messaging, and hatch plans for “a 30 front war seeking to fundamentally transform the nation,” according to documents obtained by Mother Jones.
A scary group, but if they want to take on their own kind who haven’t completely jumped off the deep end, I guess you can’t complain. The potential conflict of interest with Thomas should be entertaining too.
But the best part is the hashtags.
They’re spending huge piles of someone’s money on a big circle jerk.
Several conservative bloggers repeated talking points given to them by a proxy group for the Ukrainian government — and at least one writer was paid by a representative of the Ukrainian group, according to documents and emails obtained by BuzzFeed.
The Ukrainian campaign began in the run-up to high-stakes Ukrainian parliamentary elections last year, and sought to convince skeptical American conservatives that the pro-Russian Party of Regions, led by President Viktor Yanukovych, deserved American support. During that period, articles echoing Ukrainian government talking points appeared on leading conservative online outlets, including RedState, Breitbart, and Pajamas Media.
The emails and documents, which include prepackaged quotes from election officials and talking points that some writers copied nearly word-for-word, offer a glimpse into how foreign governments dodge tight Justice Department regulations on foreign propaganda to covertly lobby in the United States: The payments were routed through a front group in Belgium to an American consultant, who has urged writers not to cooperate with a reporter investigating the campaign.
The source who provided BuzzFeed with the emails and documents said that other writers involved in the Scoville campaign had included Breeanne Howe of RedState and Warner Todd Huston, a freelance conservative writer. The source estimated that around five or six writers were on the October 26 conference call.
Writers involved in the campaign had been individually warned by Scoville not to talk to BuzzFeed during the reporting of a story on this subject that appeared in March, and to deny any payment if asked, according to the source…
Other writers who were producing incongruous pro-Party of Regions stories at the time include Ben Shapiro of Breitbart and Seton Motley, a conservative blogger.
One of Shapiro’s Ukraine posts, “Hillary Sides With Anti-Semitic Ukrainian Opposition,” is nearly identical to a post that appeared four days later in a different publication under Huston’s byline: “Clinton Dept. of State Backing the Anti-Semitism Party in Ukraine?”
Shapiro said he hadn’t been paid by anyone other than his employers to do the posts.
Scoville “was not the one pitching me as far as I recall,” Shapiro said.
There are five of us in the entire theater. That includes my mother and my stepfather, whom I dragged to this desolate strip mall in Miami, an hour south of my mom’s house, on a Sunday. The Palace 18 is one of a few cinemas in the whole country playing Hating Breitbart, a documentary that I felt compelled to see because, ostensibly, it’s about lefties like me who loathed the right-wing punk, now deceased, for whom the film is named.Though the worn Miami multiplex is respectable enough, Hating Breitbart is being shown in an auditorium with only a few dozen seats, the aisles patched with outdated powder-blue linoleum squares. Unlike the studio features, which have full-color title cards above the theater doors, Hating Breitbart is marked by a generic sign spun off of an inkjet.
When we walk in, two men are chatting in their seats. They’re Breitbart fanatics, waiting for their fix like perverts in a porn theater. The tall one is wearing an ill-fitting grey suit with a flag lapel pin; the shorter schlub, in the next row, has a dated butt-cut hairdo. They just met, but are already trading conspiracy theories about Breitbart’s demise. The 43-year-old shock pundit died from heart failure in March 2012, but some believe that he was rubbed out by freedom-hating Democrats. No joke—Buzzfeed floated a post of “25 People Who Think President Obama Killed Andrew Breitbart.”
As I’m about to chime in with a murder scenario involving George Soros in the study with the candlestick, the place goes black, and I’m suddenly looking at a quote from Thomas Jefferson that fills the screen: “Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper.” The trope is classic Breitbart; though the firebrand helped found the Drudge Report and the Huffington Post—as well as his own far-right rhetorical circus, Breitbart.com—he preached that all news outlets were essentially evil, and he went to the edge of the earth to expose what he considered media bias.
Shot in the two years before its subject’s death, Hating Breitbart is geared to roundly dismiss charges that he was a sexist and bigot. With no narration or organization, director Andrew Marcus does this by lazily interspersing interviews—mostly with those who considered Breitbart a deity—among footage from the protagonist’s marquee donnybrooks with such nemeses as Shirley Sherrod, a state director with the Department of Agriculture who was forced to resign after Breitbart publicized a doctored tape in which she appeared to disparage white people.
