An unnamed source from Turning Point USA claims to have fired an anonymous aide responsible for creating an altered seal showing an eagle similar to the Russian national emblem and holding a set of golf clubs, likely made to make President Donald Trump look bad as he spoke before cameras and a large audience, claiming there was “zero malicious intent.”
Earlier today, President Trump was caught speaking before a presidential seal that was altered to have a double headed eagle holding golf clubs, in what many would assume is a nod to the left’s fabled Russian hacking and their sudden distaste of a president who enjoys playing golf, even after they ignored President Barack Obama’s love of the sport.
The altered seal was present at a Turning Point USA event, and President Trump likely had no clue what was behind the podium he was speaking at.
Now, The Hill and CNN report that Turning Point USA claims the aide who supplied the fake seal has been fired, but maintain that there were no nefarious intentions at play behind the former aide’s actions.
An employee for the conservative group Turning Point USA has reportedly been fired following an incident in which President Trump appeared in front of an altered presidential seal at an event hosted by the organization.
An unnamed Turning Point USA source told CNN that an audiovisual aide responsible for the seal has been dismissed. The source emphasized to the news network that there was “zero malicious intent” behind the image.“We’re sorry for the mix-up and meant no disrespect to the White House or the president or the advance team,” the TPUSA source told CNN.
According to The Hill, “A banner also read “45 es un titere,” Spanish for “45 is a puppet,” which was apparently “interpreted as a jab at the president for his relationship with Moscow and his love of golf.”
Turning Point USA, one of the best funded young conservative groups, staunchly maintains that the incident was purely an accident. There is no explanation, however, for why they would fire an employee for an honest mistake.
“One of our video team members did a Google Image search for a high-res png (file) presidential seal,” a source familiar with the incident said according to The Hill.
While Turning Point USA enjoys a comfortable relationship with the White House, they have previously been accused of stifling their activists.
Big League Politics spoke to former Turning Point USA representative and current Infowars personality Kaitlin Bennett last year:
Big League Politics spoke to student activist Kaitlin Bennett of Kent State University, who resigned her post as chapter president for the conservative organization Turning Point USA.
Bennett, a self-described “right-leaning libertarian,” clashed with the national organization over foreign policy issues, and did not feel like she had free reign to be creative with her headline-grabbing activism.
Do conservative student organizations — however well-intentioned — stifle viewpoints that deviate from the Republican party line at the expense of recruiting new members who might not be lever-pulling Republicans?
Parler CEO John Matze Forced to Flee Home Under Deluge of Left-Wing Terror Threats
Matze is suing Amazon for deplatforming Parler.
Parler CEO John Matze has been forced to flee his home and go into hiding after receiving an onslaught of left-wing death threats. Parler, a free speech social media platform, has been temporarily shut down in an extensive deplatforming campaign. Amazon promptly cut Parler’s access to its Web Services after the US Capitol riot earlier this month, cherry-picking examples of content that violate Parler’s terms of service and claiming the platform is being used for violent purposes.
Matze made the frank admission in a court filing for Parler’s lawsuit against Amazon, requesting that the court keep any disclosures about his personal life and location secret. Parler is currently suing Amazon in federal court for its immediate revocation of Parler’s hosting agreement, arguing that Amazon agreed to provide 30 days notice before any potential termination of Parler’s hosting, pursuant to the party’s original agreement.
Matze reveals that he’s been forced to leave his home and go into hiding with his family, citing Amazon Web Services’ “vilification” of his company.
Employees of Amazon have allegedly been threatened and harassed as well for shutting down Parler. The court filing in favor of redaction references these threats in requesting the court provide redaction of personal information to both sides.
“Both sides of this dispute have shown that their employees have suffered real harassment and threats—including, on both sides, death threats—owing to the charged nature of this litigation.
Parler therefore agrees with AWS that safety and security concerns justify the limited sealings requested here,” Parler requests in the Amazon lawsuit.
Parler’s administrators are still seeking to return the free speech social media platform to full operation, although it could take weeks to bring it back online. They may have learned a lesson about the futility of contracting hosting services with a Big Tech monopoly such as Amazon.
