Anti-Illegal Immigration Blog VDare Fights Back After Becoming Latest Fake News Target

The fake news is hammering VDare for opposing illegal immigration.

The fake news media is coming after the right-wing blog VDare in lieu of one of their articles critical of immigration appearing in a Department of Justice email last week.

BuzzFeed News manufactured this phony scoop last Thursday, in which the fake news outlet pointed out the blog’s use of the word “Kritarch” as proof of anti-Semitism.

“The post features links and content that directly attacks sitting immigration judges with racial and ethnically tinged slurs and the label ‘Kritarch.’ The reference to Kritarch in a negative tone is deeply offensive and Anti-Semitic,” wrote left-wing Judge Ashley Tabaddor, President of the National Association of Immigration Judges, which is effectively a union of federal government bureaucrats.

“VDare’s use of the term in a pejorative manner casts Jewish history in a negative light as an Anti-Semitic trope of Jews seeking power and control,” she added.

However, as many right-wing commentators quickly pointed out, kritarchy is a term of Greek origin that means, simply, “rule by judges.” It has become popularized in an age dominated by left-wing judicial activism outside the bounds of the Constitution.

Peter Brimelow, founder of VDare, outlined the coordinated witch hunt against his site that has reverberated within the fake news echo chamber. The good side to these attacks, he points out, is that they have unwittingly caused significant mainstream discussion of an important verboten idea.

“Nevertheless, it’s a significant victory that the ancient and entirely legitimate concept of kritarchy has finally made it into public debate,” Brimelow writes.

The New York Times was even forced to begrudgingly admit the legitimacy of the term:

The VDare post described the Justice Department’s recent efforts to decertify the judges’ union. It published photographs of two judges, one of Iranian descent and one of Pakistani descent, and referred to them as “kritarch.”

That term has historically been used in a non-pejorative way to describe “rule by judges,” but more recently it has been co-opted by white nationalists and anti-Semitic extremists, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

…Aryeh Tuchman, associate director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, said that “kritarchy” had long been used to describe “rule by judges.”

“There are examples throughout the course of history of societies ruled by judges, with one of the more well-known examples being the land of Israel as described in the Biblical books of Joshua and Judges,” he said in an emailed statement on Friday.

But he added that it appeared that extremists, “mainly confined to the racist, anti-immigrant site VDare, have co-opted the term to refer to liberal American judges as ‘kritarchs’.”

That reference is used to convey their “displeasure and belief that these judges are acting independently and without accountability to a form of government — mainly as it pertains to social issues, specifically immigration,” Mr. Tuchman said.

“Many of the extremists on VDare who use this term are in fact anti-Semites, and they may intentionally be using ‘kritarch’ as a way to express their anti-Semitism, but on its own, the term is not self-evidently anti-Semitic,” Mr. Tuchman said.

Once again, a smear campaign from the fake news media has backfired on them. More people are aware of the prevalence of kritarchy than ever before, and VDare has received a great deal of free advertisement as media consumers become more interested in alternatives to globalist propaganda.
