The Anatomy of a Smear: Why Americans Distrust and Hate the Mainstream Media

Editor’s Note: In case you were wondering, this is who we call “journalists” these days. Feel free to watch the video below to see how they cover “hate.” Maybe this video can get more than 158 views? SPOILER: Antifa are the good guys and those who oppose them are bad guys.

I just got off the phone with Chris Joyner of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

As you know, I now have a rule of turning down all media requests from “journalists” in light of previous dishonest and hyperbolic stories that have been written about this website. In this case, I had no choice because he is working on a “story” that is going to try to connect this website to the Neo-Nazi accelerationist group “The Base” and a recent murder plot in Georgia. You got to be kidding me, right? WTF is this shit about?

I’m sure that our readers are as shocked to learn about this development as I was when I was first notified about this developing “story.” What the hell does this website have to do with “The Base”? Haven’t we spent months here documenting how all these accelerationists were getting arrested? Haven’t we literally spent years here stretching all the way back to the 2000s during my public feuds with Glenn Miller and Harold Covington criticizing vanguardists and violent accelerationism? I’ve written dozens of articles about violence, domestic terrorism, mass shootings, vanguardism and accelerationism and throughout everything I have actually written here about the subject have made it crystal clear that I think it is a retarded “strategy.” In fact, I am so opposed to it that I moderate the comment section here just to weed out these people from coming here and posting about their RAHOWA fantasies on this blog when I am not online. It is a major annoyance for our commentators that their comments here aren’t automatically posted and as I have explained it is a routine hassle for us because of those people and Antifa trolls.

Obviously, I have nothing to do with this group “The Base” which is a fed honeypot whose “leader” is a Russia-based intelligence contractor, much less a murder plot in Georgia which was penetrated by a federal agent. It would never occur to me to join, support or promote a Neo-Nazi pagan accelerationist group or to hang out with a bunch of LARPers like that who want to bring on the Boogaloo in encrypted chats on Telegram. I don’t know any of these people and have only heard about them due to the recent hysteria in the media, but past is prologue and that has never stopped “journalists” from trying to rope me into these stories. It has happened at least half a dozen times now. In the aftermath of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, Antifa “journalists” from The Daily Beast and The Huffington Post attempted to rope into that story based on solely on the fact that the shooter – who was a total stranger – had “regabbed” an article that I wrote here that criticized Donald Trump and had said a few things in my mentions. Imagine being “connected” by the media to a terrorist attack on the basis of a rando liking, retweeting or replying to you on Twitter. Such has been my bitter experience with the media.

This happens every few years. When Glenn Miller aka Rounder went on his shooting spree in Kansas City, there was an attempt to “link” me to Glenn Miller based on the fact that I knew who he was on the internet. Nevermind the fact that I thought he was a blowhard, a laughingstock and a cartoon character throwback to the WN 1.0 movement who I made fun of for years. When Dylann Roof went on his shooting spree in Charleston, there was an attempt to “link” me to that incident too because the CofCC posted crime statistics on its website. When James Fields, Jr. plowed his car into the crowd in Charlottesville, I was once again accused of being involved in a massive conspiracy even though I like pretty much everyone else who was there did not know Fields either. When a White Nationalist who was high on drugs pulled an emergency brake on an Amtrak train in Nebraska in 2018, I was once again accused by the same people of being “linked” to him. The basis of the “link” was that this individual had also attended the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville. Antifa groups on Twitter have a long history of making up stories, throwing shit up against the wall and trying to make it stick. This is at least the sixth time it has happened.

The latest “story” is that a “Bartow County couple” was targeted by The Base in a murder plot who thought they were Antifa because they read a series of articles on Occidental Dissent that I wrote about Georgia Antifa in late 2018. This is news to me. If the FBI or the Bartow County, GA police have any reason to believe that to be true, they have made no effort to contact me about it. I have no way of knowing if it is true either because as far as I can tell the names of the anonymous “Bartow County couple” haven’t been published anywhere. I couldn’t find anything about this website and this case in the affidavit that has been published on the internet. Regardless of whether or not it is true, I promptly deleted those articles because I want nothing to do with either accelerationists or violent Antifa groups. Well over a year ago, I realized that it was a mistake to engage with those people and that it was a massive a sink of our time to feed these trolls and that the best way to deal with them is to ignore them.

In the articles that I wrote about Georgia Antifa, I did not “dox” them. Unlike Atlanta Antifa which posted photos of Sam Dickson’s house on their website and encouraged their followers to harass his neighbors, I DID NOT publish their phone numbers or addresses. I published the names of Antifa who had been arrested in Georgia at violent protests like Auburn, Newnan and Stone Mountain. Most of their names and mugshots were published by the media including by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. I also identified several of the ringleaders of the group who either 1.) attended public protests and posted glamour shots of themselves on Facebook or 2.) who identified themselves as “Atlanta Antifa” on their defunct public Facebook group. There were several members of a group called the North Georgia Socialist Rifle Association who all posted their real names on Facebook and tagged themselves in a group photo in Shelbyville. If you publicly identify yourself as Antifa on Facebook and attend multiple Antifa protests unmasked wearing t-shirts emblazoned with an Antifa logo and the name of your Antifa organization, do you have a right to complain about being called Antifa on the internet? I don’t think so.

My quarrel with Atlanta Antifa began in early 2017 when they threatened to storm the hotel and violently shutdown Identity Dixie’s Atlanta Forum. Shortly thereafter, Atlanta Antifa crossed state lines and came to Alabama and physically assaulted a friend of mine who was trying to attend the Richard Spencer event at Auburn which is my alma mater. Later, they cooperated with Christopher Mathias of The Huffington Post to recycle their stories doxxing several rightwing activists all over Georgia. Then there was the Newnan rally in 2018 which they tried to disrupt and were arrested. Then there was their campaign of harassment to get Casey Jordan Cooper kicked out of John Marshall Law School for his political beliefs. Then there was the harassment of Sam Dickson in his own neighborhood. This anarchist group has no problem whatsoever engaging in doxxing, violence, vandalism, stalking, defamation or harassment, but whines when as a result of its extreme tactics in trying to cancel people for their political views it predictably makes a slew of enemies on the Right. I’m not in the least bit surprised (though I was unaware) that it started a brand new quarrel with this new group “The Base” because it has made an enemy out of EVERY RIGHTWING GROUP in Georgia. It does not, however, follow that all its various enemies were somehow working together or that all these different groups have created a “kill list” or “target list” for The Base or that all their various enemies are even in contact or aware of each other’s existence. To publicly make this accusation in print is LIBEL.

Normally, I would just ignore what Atlanta Antifa posts on their own obscure blog and their poorly trafficked anarchist newshub because such garbage is not worth responding to and it isn’t newsworthy either. Who cares what Antifa groups are publishing on their own blogs? No one cares except for fake news “journalists” who work for the mainstream media and who increasingly in the Trump era act as the press secretary for the Far Left by recycling story after story after story DIRECTLY from Antifa blogs. Is it ethical for “journalists” to recycle baseless gossip, rumors and unfounded accusations from Antifa blogs? Is a rumor about domestic terrorism that your Antifa friends are liking and retweeting on Twitter a story? If I were to share my thoughts on Twitter about how Atlanta Antifa engages in doxxing, vandalism, violence and harassment in the Atlanta Metro Area, would that be a “story”? Of course not. Such a story wouldn’t fit the liberal narrative about “hate” in America. The “Council Against Hate” would call that “giving a platform to White Nationalist extremists.” No objections appears to be raised to giving a platform to violent Antifa groups and the Far Left.

There is no evidence that 1.) I have anything to do with this fed honeypot accelerationist group “The Base,” 2.) that I support or have any sympathy for this ridiculous pagan LARP group, 3.) that I know anyone involved in this group or 4.) that this website has anything to do with “The Base” or this particular case which NEITHER the defendants OR law enforcement have ever suggested. It is sensationalist he said/she said gossip. Even if it was true that I called a person Antifa who attended an Antifa rally wearing a t-shirt that said “Antifa” in 2018, I did nothing wrong.

I’m beyond fed up with biased “journalists” trying to associate me with domestic terrorists and mass shooters in order to smear me for their Antifa friends to get upcummies from leftists on Twitter and in the newsroom. I’m sick of being “linked” to people who I don’t know, whose views I do not support and whose actions I cannot control and for whom I am not in anyway responsible, but that is where the media is at these days. If it happened to you not once, not twice, not even three times, but SIX F***ING TIMES you would be as furious as I am at the moment. That’s a pattern and there has got to be an explanation for why it continues to happen.

What else can anyone do but avoid these groups? If you avoid these groups and do not support their agenda, it seems your name will still dragged through the mud by the media anyway. The “Council Against Hate” has a narrative and the facts will be twisted to suit the narrative. Cue gigantic eyeroll at the liberal lack of self awareness.

Note: There is a reason why it is called “fake news” and the “lying press.” This is what happens to all sorts of people all the time who haven’t created their own platforms and lack the ability to respond or who get deplatformed by the media colluding with Antifa groups.

  1. HW,
    You must realize and come to grips with the fact, that it is a torah mitzvah ” to always blame the idolater”, THAT IS YOU !

    They will always look for every avenue to put blame on you, it is a required primary principle of jwzdism. It is a devine commandment.

    ( all gentiles are idolater.)

    • “In fact, I am so opposed to it that I moderate the comment section here just to weed out these people from coming here and posting about their RAHOWA fantasies on this blog when I am not online”

      You are a self-aware, professedly Christian, believing in freedom of speech, WHITE MALE American.

      “Of course” you are guilty. And, ‘of course’ all Leftist retard soy boys, are innocent…. until the Multiculti Bolsheviks claim THEY are ‘recipients of privilege.’ Then THEY will be guilty… but never the Jews…

      DEATH TO THE JEW WORLD ORDER. (Why do you think I say this so often?)

  2. HW,

    The more effective you become, the larger your audience, the more slander you will be subjected to.

    Just like David Duke, Don Black etc.

  3. Okay. By their own rules, Chris Joyner has connections to HUHWYTE SUPREEEEEMICIST groups because he’s corresponded with you.


  4. Exactly what to expect from the yellow journalists who not only consider Antifa to be a reliable source of information, but paint them as both heroic fighters for justice and victims of those awful white supremacists.

  5. It was “journalists ” from the bird cage liner aka Atlanta-Journal-Constitution that smeared the innocent hero Richard Hewell in collaboration with a politically weaponized FBI in 1996. The Atlanta-Journal-Constitution’s anti-white far left “reporters” and publisher racially profiled Mr. Jewell as a domestic terrorist in the aftermath of the terrorist bombing during the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympic Games. Mr. Jewell, of course was cleared off all charges, but the damage was done to his reputation and psyche.

    Both the Atlanta-Journal-Constitution (other mainstream media platforms too) and the FBI are less trustworthy than a used car salesman in a cheap suit. Neither the FBI or mainstream media will not allow their anti-white agendas be sidetracked by facts and figures while they command the megaphones that utilizes ‘the big lie’ tactic against lawful dissidents.

    • November,

      I was puzzled at the bird cage liner reference. Then I remembered Red Heat with Arnold Swarznegger and how the movie begins. I try to watch lots of Russian/Soviet movies.

      I have seen Brat (brother). We watch Masha and Medved cartoons.

      • Lining bird cages is the appropriate use of newspapers filled with lies, smears, ad hominem attacks, innuendo, jewish bias, and very little truth except for sports scores.

  6. I’m sorry that you have to deal with this, Hunter.

    I read a few Americans who write commentaries, but virtually all my news now comes from foreign
    sources. Many of the journalists I read regularly are leftists but they are honest and decent and not scummy like their US counterparts.

    • Right, Brad should send registered letters to the Editor, the Publisher and the Advertising Manager of the Atlanta Journal Constitution suggesting that they contact the FBI about Rinaldo Nazzaro and the Base. Be sure and mention their employees call to you.

      You can always have your letter notarized too.

  7. In Canada we keep a good eye on communist literature, websites, groups and propaganda…We found and doxxed the communists who showed up in masks to attack Faith Goldy in less than 24hrs…it blew their minds how fast we identified them, their friends, their workplaces, their schools… Everything!

    • They are not “Antifa” they are communists…even the word Antifa is designed to psychologically impair the public mind someone opposing “Antifa” would automatically be a “Fa” which has been hammered into the public psyche to be the most evil thing ever…when the public is made aware that we are fighting communists, people tend to understand and support what were doing a lot more.

      • Indeed Canadian. Antifa were the communist jewish financed opposition to Ernst Röhm’s Sturmarbeilung “Brown Shirts” in Deutschland.

  8. Like our wonderful Minister of Propaganda Dr. Goebbels said if you haven’t been slandered in the jewish press then it was a wasted day.

  9. How many ADL and SPLC workshops’ have ChrisJoyner and his “great panel” of presstitutes been a part of? Did the anti-defecation league of bad breath explain to them how to use talmudic inspired ‘newspeak in order to pull the wool over the goys eyes, thus frightening normies to the point of hiding under their beds because of “hate” and the boogeyman of “white supremacy?”

    Former FBI director James Comey, and surely all those that preceded and followed him have all been ‘guests’ of SPLC and ADL jewish domestic spying organizations and anti-white jubilees.

    Never speak to law enforcement or the media, especially without your own recordings of the interaction and your attorney present. They are not your friend. They’re the equivalent of a BSL-4 pathogens.

  10. My reason for the vile hate of MSM?

    They’re all owned and controlled by disgusting parasitic jews that are much worse than the coronavirus. At least that disease gets you fast but disgusting jews in the MSM get you slowly and painfully over many years of nail biting and worrying over lying nonsense of economic doom, terrorism, war, equality nonsense and wondering if my son is going to cut off his dick.

    Let’s face facts, with jews in our society we all lose and have the coronavirus one way or another in our lives. There is no cure.

  11. For me, what is really frighting about this, is the effort to paint ANTIFA as the victims or “good guys.
    Think about it. A group of masked street fighters, battle peaceful demonstrators and police, hurling Molotov cocktails, and using bats, pipes, chains, and clubs to beat the “fascists” (whoever that is) within an inch of their life….. and they (ANTIFA) are the “heroes” of the story?

    I feel like I am watching history repeat itself. In the Weimar Republic, there was degeneracy and crime that sickened the majority, but to keep that majority “in it’s place” socialists, communists, and “progressives” (many of them Jewish) battled German citizens and the police in the streets in order to “keep the fascists out” and firmly cement Weimar’s “progressive” licentiousness and degeneracy in the culture. 2020 is the new 1920s.

  12. In Germany it is exactly the same situation. Almost everything is dominated by the narrative of those shitty mainstream “journalists”. The mainstream media is very responsible for all the misery, decadence and decay we are facing here. Today’s Germany is just a cheap copy of the Jewnited States…

    • Just the fact 90% or so of stories on Trump are proven to be negative is all you need to know.

      It’s all a totally false narrative where ” white supremacists” are spoken of more than black crime, Ms-13 or Mexican cartels. It’s all done on purpose to distort and cause chaos. Basically like going after the jaywalkers while ignoring the murderers and rapists.

      Our media and Hollywood are mostly Jewish run with some ” just pay me” goys like Chris Cuomo and George Stephanopoulos who get financially rewarded due to them pushing those same treason ideas.

      American media is vile with its Russia obsession yet ignores real election interference just by the fact the Democrats push for new populations
      to come here and vote.

      If anything Russian memes are a tiny balance to American media literally being the arm of the Democrat Party. Who in their right mind would trust our treasonous media?

  13. Isn’t this paper affectionately called the ‘Atlanta Urinal and Constipation,’ because they are full of sh**?

  14. Anti-White “journalists” will never give a pro-White a fair,unbiased interview. The more you protest the worse they’ll make it look for you. For future reference tell them: “Nazi” is an anti-White hate word meaning any White person who doesn’t want his race abolished. Tell them: Anti-Whites hide behind hate words as they carry out White Genocide. End the interview at that point. Once you go on the defensive you’ve lost.
