Buzzfeed is continuing the left’s new tactic of posting private information about private individuals publicly with no cause or provocation, this time releasing the identity of the owner of Conservative Post, the Internet’s oldest source of conservative news.
Late last night, Buzzfeed‘s Craig Silverman and Jennifer Grygiel published an article titled “We Found The Pseudonymous Man Behind One Of The Oldest Conservative News Outlets Online”, and bragged about their sleuthing to the Buzzfeed audience.
They did nothing to explain why outing the man, a Chattanooga, Tennessee resident, was newsworthy information.
Buzzfeed explains that Patriot Post is possibly the Internet’s oldest source of conservative news, founded in 1996. Throughout the article, the fact that Patriot Post does not run ads, but instead depends entirely on direct donations from its readers, seems to enrage the Buzzfeed journalists:
While you may not have heard of the Patriot Post, it is among the oldest conservative publications online. In addition to its website, it has a newsletter whose subscribers seemingly number in the hundreds of thousands, and a large and growing presence on Facebook. Although it doesn’t run ads or charge for subscriptions, it generates enough revenue to fund a full-time staff and significant ongoing Facebook ad campaign. Yet who runs it has remained largely concealed from the public throughout its 23-year history.
Buzzfeed went on to explain that the “pseudonyms, claims of top GOP endorsements, ad-free model, and reluctance to share details about its operations make it one of the most unique, and mysterious, partisan news operations.”
Big League Politics will not join Buzzfeed in providing the name of the website’s owner, who uses the pseudonym Mark M. Alexander on the site. Alexander explains the reason for his pseudonym is “proprietary”, as is the number of email addresses subscribed to Patriot Post‘s newsletter.
Again, Buzzfeed does not make clear why they considered any of this newsworthy, or why they decided to post private information about the website.
If this seems familiar, it should. Earlier this year, a convicted hacker who was previously banned from the Internet and now works as a Daily Beast journalist, with Facebook’s help doxxed an African American man because he owns a Facebook page that posted a viral meme video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appearing to sound drunk:
Facebook has thus far not commented to Big League Politics regarding the assistance they provided Daily Beast journalist and former convicted hacker Kevin Poulsen in doxxing the formerly private citizen who shared the viral meme of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appearing to speak even less clearly than usual.
Poulsen bragged about receiving private information directly from Facebook about Shawn Brooks, the man who uploaded the viral video of Pelosi that was slightly edited to make her appear less coherent than usual from big tech platform Facebook in his hit piece.
Last year, CNN doxxed an elderly supporter of President Donald Trump, causing violent leftists to attack her online. The same network also threatened to dox a user who created a viral meme, depicting President Trump body slamming CNN, essentially blackmailing the user to apologize for his funny meme.
The United States has clearly crossed into a new frontier, where journalists have carte blanche permission to dox private citizens for doing things they find distasteful.
New York Times Claims Churches are ‘Major Source’ of COVID-19 Infections…Despite Accounting for Only 0.02% of Cases
This is a war on Christianity.
The New York Times published an article on Wednesday that claimed, “Churches Were Eager to Reopen, Now They Are a Major Source of Coronavirus Infections.”
“More than 650 coronavirus cases have been linked to nearly 40 churches and religious events across the United States since the beginning of the pandemic,” the Times claims, “with many of them erupting over the last month as Americans resumed their pre-pandemic activities.”
Reason Magazine performed an analysis of the claims made by the Times and found they were complete bunk. Only 0.02% of cases have come from churches, an infinitesimal percentage, but the fake news targets churches while giving a pass to leftists who are rioting and looting nationwide.
“The number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in the United States is now 3.1 million, meaning the church-related cases identified by the Times account for 0.02 percent of the total. On the face of it, that does not seem like “a major source of coronavirus infections.” And there are something like 385,000 churches in the U.S., so the ones tied to COVID-19 infections represent around 0.01 percent of Christian congregations,” Reason Magazine wrote.
Reason Magazine noted that the article from the Times is bigoted against Christianity and serves as propaganda against religious worship. The Times claims that COVID-19 “has struck churches that reopened cautiously with face masks and social distancing in the pews, as well as some that defied lockdowns and refused to heed new limits on numbers of worshipers.”
“The issue is whether churches can reopen with an acceptable level of risk by following the same guidelines that apply to other settings where people gather for extended periods of time. By implying that precautions don’t really matter, the Times is sending a dangerous message to Americans, many of whom are already weary of social distancing rules and disinclined to wear masks,” Reason Magazine wrote.
Big League Politics has reported on how Christian pastors have been charged with crimes for holding services during COVID-19 mass hysteria:
Another Christian pastor is being charged with crimes for holding church services during the coronavirus lockdown.
Mark Anthony Spell, a Central, La. pastor, is receiving six misdemeanor charges for disobeying Gov. John Bel Edwards’ emergency shutdown edicts after he held church services this past weekend.
“Over the last two weeks I have worked with the sheriff, state police, the state fire marshal, Reverend Tony Perkins, and others to address this matter outside of legal action. Mr. Spell made his intentions to continue to violate the law clear. Instead of showing the strength and resilience of our community during this difficult time, Mr. Spell has chosen to embarrass us for his own self-promotion,” said Central Police Chief Roger Corcoran, who issued the misdemeanor summons to Spell.
“Mr. Spell will have his day in court where he will be held responsible for his reckless and irresponsible decisions that endangered the health of his congregation and our community. This is not an issue over religious liberty, and it’s not about politics. We are facing a public health crisis and expect our community’s leaders to set a positive example and follow the law,” he added.
Spell has allegedly convened six unlawful church services at his Life Tabernacle Church hosting more individuals at his worship proceedings than what is allowed by the state. East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore said Spell is receiving a misdemeanor count for every time he allegedly violated the edict. They will not charge everyone who gathered unlawfully at the church but will attempt to make an example of Spell because “encouraged others to violate” the law.
The Left has used COVID-19 to punish Christians, as they exploit the crisis to punish hurt enemies and gain illicit control.
