A 2009 Facebook post from Right Wing Watch’s Jared Holt shows anti-gay remarks made by the the now-champion of “progressive” values.

“You are a F-R-E-S-H-M-A-N .. not a ‘freshie’ – shut up, you sound like a queer,” Holt said in the post.

Holt calls himself an “investigative reporter” for Right Wing Watch, a project of the uber-left nonprofit People for the American Way. His job essentially boils down to ascribing Naziism and bigotry to prominent right-wing figures and groups.

In public, he appears to be a defender of LGBT rights.

“I don’t enjoy these right-wing figures any more than the rest of y’all, but please do not respond to my stuff with jokes about folks being in the closet, performing oral sex on each other, etc. ‘They’re gay’ isn’t a punchline and that crap is toxic. Be better,” he said in a May Twitter post.

He also cited the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has internal bigotry problems of its own, to deride the American Family Association as “anti-LGBTQ” and a “hate group” when it met with Walmart leaders in April:

But as usual, the holier-than-thou charade does not withstand any semblance of scrutiny.

Holt made the homophobic remark, among other disturbing comments, in a Facebook post deriding the incoming freshman class at his high school.

“Sex doesn’t make you cool and it won’t make upper-class boys think any higher of you,” Holt advised incoming female students. “So don’t go around bragging about it. No one cares and you look like an easy freshman whore. Just leave the slutty things you did in 8th grade, in middle school.”

“You are not cool. Everyone does hate you. You are annoying,” he said.

Holt did not return a comment request.

Trump Pardons 9/11 Hero & Ex-NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik

Published

on

On February 18, 2020, President Donald Trump announced the pardon of Bernard Kerik, the former NYPD commissioner who spent time in prison for tax fraud and lying to the government.

This news came hours after Trump pardoned Edward DeBartolo Jr., the former San Francisco 49ers owner was convicted in a gambling fraud scandal. DeBartolo Jr. built one of the most successful franchises in NFL history.

Kerik was nominated to be the nation’s head of homeland security on one occasion and spent three years in prison before being released in 2013.

He was viewed as a hero for leading the NYPD during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. However, Kerik’s image took a hit when he became the first New York City police commissioner to be imprisoned for federal crimes.

His legal problems spilled over and muddied the political aspirations of other elected officials, such as former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

While leaving the White House Tuesday afternoon, Trump said he “pardoned” Kerik “a man who had many recommendations from a lot of good people.”

After being pardoned, Kerik went on Twitter to thank the president writing that “there are no words to express my appreciation and gratitude to President Trump. He continued by saying that “with the exception of the birth of my children, today is one of the greatest days in my life.”

Kerik proceed to describe his prison experience as “dying with your eyes open,’ citing the “collateral consequences and the permanent loss of many of your civil and constitutional rights are personally devastating.”

Kerik volunteered to be Giuliani’s chauffeur and provided security during his first unsuccessful run for mayor. Once he secured the mayor’s office in 1993, Giuliani promoted Kerik, a high school dropout, to the highest echelons of New York City government.

The mayor eventually promoted his former bodyguard as the city’s 40th police commissioner in 2001.

Kerik almost became President George Bush’s Homeland Security Secretary in 2004, but he was quickly dropped as a nominee.

Two days afterwards, The Daily News reported that Larry Ray, who had been the best man at Kerik’s wedding, had presented evidence of Kerik failing to report thousands of dollars in gifts he’d received while he was an employee of New York City.
