Mike Cernovich Leads Charge of ‘Reporters’ Denying Credit to BLP for Northam Blackface/KKK Scoop

Published

on

Midday Friday, capping off what will likely go down as one of the worst weeks any politician has ever had, Big League Politics released a viral photo showing Democratic governor of Virginia Ralph Northam and a friend dressed in blackface and a KKK hood from his yearbook at Eastern Virginia Medical School.

Mike Cernovich, known for his self-published book “Gorilla Mindset,” was not happy that BLP put watermarks on the Northam photo, which we did to prevent people like Cernovich from taking credit for our original work.

Cernovich has a history of this behavior. In fact, he passed one of my original stories off as his own just this week.

“ANTIFA member pulled a gun on police,” Cernovich said on Twitter on Monday. “He was shot dead. ANTIFA is outraged. At police.”

He added a couple more Tweets to the mix:

The story would appear to have originated with Cernovich. But it did not. Big League Politics broke the viral story earlier in the day.

Only later did Cernovich share our story – without mentioning who first reported it. The screenshots in his Tweets are from links that can be derived from BLP’s original report.

Cernovich and other Twitter verified personalities have a history of this type of “reporting.” Their modus operandi follows: pretend they’re in the know without ever setting foot in a newsroom. We’ve had enough, and will be calling out this behavior every time we see it, even if the material is not stolen from Big League Politics. 

Fast forward to Friday. After BLP released the bombshell photo of Northam, Cernovich was miffed that he could not take the watermarked images and post them to his Twitter account without giving us due credit.

Strangely, he direct messaged me on Twitter eight times, demanding that we provide him with the original source of the information. (Cernovich could have independently corroborated the story like Virginia Pilot did hours later, but this “journalism” thing isn’t all that easy when you’re not stealing other people’s work).

“I can’t comfortably share that,” he said, as if we had asked him to share, or we needed his permission to report the news.

An hour later, he was back.

“Could someone bring a physical copy of the yearbook to a third party to verify?” he asked. “This is either a major story or a major hoax.”

Of course, we knew it was a major story and not a hoax, having thoroughly vetted it before accusing a sitting United States Governor of a blatant racism that will likely cause him to resign. We vet both sources and stories before publication. Perhaps Cernovich is unschooled on editorial standards, given that ripping stories off and sharing them on Twitter isn’t exactly journalism.

By the way: what’s with the DM’s?

Is Cernovich the arbiter of all that is true on the internet? Are we to run our stories past him to make sure they’re newsworthy and accurate? Or is he just a bit too big for his britches?

Wrap your Gorilla Mindset around this, Mike – we’re not asking for your permission to do the news.

Without managing to steal our scoop, he still managed to recycle our Tweets on the story. Note the time stamps:

Since the story was released, BuzzFeed, Yahoo, and Benny Johnson and Amber Athey from Daily Caller have all managed to report the story without giving BLP the credit it deserves.

Johnson, who was fired from BuzzFeed for plagiarism in 2014, direct messaged Big League Politics asking us to confirm the story, which would necessarily involve revealing our source. We declined.

We await their apologies.

HYPOCRISY: Liberal COVID-19 Alarmists Who Denounced Lockdown Protests are Silent about National Riots

They have shown how coronavirus panic was manufactured.

Published

on

Far-left hypocrites regularly admonished anti-lockdown protesters for peacefully demonstrating for their livelihoods as spreading COVID-19, only to cheer on violent race riots throughout the country days later and ignore any negative public health implications.

The Resurgence writer Drew Holden created a compilation of the greatest hits of lying liberals engaging in blatant double-standards regarding the coronavirus:

He started by calling out former Clinton operative and CNN hack Joe Lockhart for his despicable comments:

Holden moved onto obsessive Never Trumpers, Tony Posnanski and Kurt Eichenwald for completely changing their tune:

He moved on to profiling some of the most disgraced public officials across the country, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer:

He profiled New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, who has been one of most belligerent leaders throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and Washington Post neoconservative Jennifer Rubin for their partisan flip-flopping.

Holden hammered transgender cretin Charlotte Clymer and Julia Ioffe, who writes for GQ Magazine now that nobody reads it:

CNN Political Analyst April Ryan and Russia-gate truther Scott Dworkin were exposed as well:

The co-hosts of Pod Save America, an anti-Trump podcast, made fools of themselves too:

Holden closed his thread by exposing CNN host Soledad O’Brien for her colossal levels of hypocrisy:

The anti-quarantine protests have been vilified constantly despite the fact that they happened throughout the nation without any violence, and have served as golden examples of effective peaceful protest.

Big League Politics reported on protests like “Operation Gridlock” that have emerged across the country:

On Monday, individuals convened in the downtown area for an “Operation Gridlock” protest, based off of last week’s wildly successful demonstration in Michigan against anti-Trump Governor Gretchen Whitmer, whose lockdown policies are among the most strict in the nation.

California Governor Gavin Newsom might be giving Whitmer some competition, as his state bureaucrats have arbitrarily banned a certain type of rally. It is unknown whether they plan to lock up protesters if they disobey the new edict.

“In the interest of public safety and the health of all Californians during the COVID-19 pandemic, effective immediately the California Highway Patrol will deny any permit requests for events or activities at all state facilities, to include the State Capitol, until public health officials have determined it is safe to gather again,” the CHP said.

Because protesters did not comply with arbitrary social distancing mandates and protested as they wished, California is punishing them as a consequence.

The protest was put on by the Freedom Angels, a group that organizes to prevent mandatory vaccinations. They are urging people to stand up to prevent their rights from being taken away during these troubling times.

“This is the time for people to take notice and really evaluate the freedoms they’re giving up, all in the name of perceived safety,” said Freedom Angels co-founder Heidi Munoz Gleisner in a Facebook video.

“People need to get back to work, get back to life, get back into contact with their loved ones who they’re isolated from, they need to be able to have a paycheck,” group co-founder Tara Thornton said to The Sacramento Bee, which interviewed her during the demonstration. “This is the grounds they will enslave us upon.”

The leftists have proven with their brazen hypocrisy that destroyed the economy and shut down society with ginned up coronavirus hysteria just to hurt President Trump’s re-election chances. These enemies of civilization need to be brought to justice for the damage they have caused.
