I was invited to the Los Angeles screening of Mike Cernovich’s Hoaxed last month, and believe that every single American would be better off if they went and saw this documentary when it comes out.
It’s not often that someone like Mike Cernovich comes out swinging to reclaim the loaded narrative of ‘fake news.’ Hoaxed tackles Cernovich’s own allegations of fake news head on, and makes a strong case that all news media is made of narratives that serve a purpose other than your own information. If you don’t come away with the understanding that all media has an agenda, you missed the very clear and concise point of the movie.
It’s evident that the movie was produced by filmmakers who lean conservative, due to the larger rotation of “fake news” topics discussed involving political right-wingers. It would be incorrect to say that this movie is intended for a conservative audience, however.
Those on the left will find plenty of things to beef with their own side too, from left-wing coverage of Black Lives Matter, to police violence and more. The filmmakers also do not hold back in equal criticism of conservative outlets, which I found refreshing. No movie on fake news can ignore the media narratives perpetuated by outlets on both sides.
I won’t delve into specifics on the content of the documentary out of respect for Mike, as it has not been publicly release yet. What I will say is that I own a media relations firm and have talked politics on TV hundreds of times, and even I came away with an understanding I never had before.
I knew far from the whole picture before I watched Hoaxed. It really opened my eyes and showed me that we are receiving a tiny sliver of information from the news media, which does not show the world as it actually is. Both the Left and the Right have their own narratives.
It is up to you to determine the truth. You can’t trust the people on TV to tell you the truth.
Hell, really shouldn’t even trust me when you think about it.
Go watch the movie for yourself and see if I told you the truth.
Opinion: CPAC’s Incompetency and Hypocrisy on Full Display in Their Handling of the Young Pharaoh Situation
What was CPAC thinking inviting him anyway?
CPAC 2021 will have to go on without hip-hop artist Young Pharaoh, who was booted from speaking at the conference after the resurfacing of prior tweets about Jews and Judaism.
The tweets were dug up and gathered in a Media Matters report published Monday. One in particular stated in all caps that “there is no historical or scientific evidence proving the existence of Jews or Judaism… it’s all a complete lie.” Young Pharaoh adds that the best Jewish scholar out there could not disprove his hunch that “religion [is] completely made up for political gain.”
THERE IS NO #HISTORICAL OR #SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE PROVING THE EXISTENCE OF #JEWS OR #JUDAISM… ITS ALL A COMPLETE #LIE‼️..GO GET THE BEST #JEWISH #SCHOLAR YOU CAN FIND & ILL EXPOSE #RELIGION AS BEING COMPLETELY MADE UP FOR #POLITICAL GAIN💯🔥⚔️#ITNEVERHAPPENED

After learning that he’s now persona non grata, Young Pharaoh then tweeted—again in all caps—that he would give $50,000 to a rabbi who could “prove the validity of Judaism” in a debate with him.

Many media outlets are choosing to focus on the “anti-Semitic” nature of these and other tweets, but this ultimately misses the bigger picture. Why is CPAC so quick to ban conservatives with significantly less out-in-left-field views than Young Pharaoh? And why exactly did CPAC invite him in the first place?
It’s not just Jews and Judaism that Young Pharaoh has insulted. He’s also made disparaging remarks about Christians and Christianity. You know, the professed religion of a plurality, if not a majority, of conservatives.
In December 2020 Young Pharaoh tweeted: “#CHRISTIANITY IS BASED UPON PEDOPHILIA, AFRICAN VOODOO HAS BEEN INFILTRATED BY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WHOM ARE ALSO #WHITE PEDOPHILES. CAUCASIANS CONTINUOUSLY COLONIZE, ,RAPE, PERVERT, THEN FORGET WHEN ITS TIME TO DEAL WITH THEIR OWN CREATED EVILS & PROBLEMS. RELIGION IS GARBAGE.”

The guy is certifiably nuts. That much is clear. But how did he pass CPAC’s smell test while right-wing conservatives who aren’t nuts like Gavin McInnes, Michelle Malkin, Vincent James, et al have been banned from CPAC since at least last year?
The whole situation becomes even richer when you consider that the theme for this year’s conference is “America Uncanceled.” The jokes are writing themselves at this point.
Although it must be reiterated that CPAC should never have asked Young Pharaoh to speak in the first place, this situation shows that CPAC doesn’t actually oppose “cancel culture.” It perpetuates the all-too-familiar narrative that conservatives cower in the face of left-wing hit pieces and pull the plug on their targets because they want to appear “respectable” to a political class that hates them.
CPAC sure bungled this one no matter how you slice it.
