Enough with this shit. This is such a transparent smear. This is why everyone on the right, even Trump critics, think the media lack all credibility. They act like they are Dem activists.

It’s David Horowitz’s conference.
Horowitz started out as a far-left activist and was friends w Black Panther leaders, then turned right.

Yes, he has said plenty of dumb things over decades of political activism, but that conference was always mainstream. Almost every major figure on the right had spoken at it.
That’s not to say that people shouldn’t dissociate w/ some of the speakers invite there, but every major R figure has spoken at that same conference and can have the same article dishonestly written about them.
Imagine if a newspaper vetted the statements of some of the far-left organizers and tried to smear the political attendees of conferences with them, but WaPo and other mainstream outlets only do this crap to one side.
This is guilt by 3rd degree of association and basically allows them to smear everyone on the right.

The reporters behind this know that. Their own article acknowledges that Rick Perry, Ben Shapiro etc have all spoken there. But they still chose this smear framing.
And they know 90% of people won’t read past the headline and will just assume DeSantis intentionally attended some racist conference. Look at the replies.

This is why many on the right view the media as the opposition. Trump takes advantage of it, but they do it to themselves.
If you want proof, just look at the Women’s March. That organization was founded by extremist bigots, but not one mainstream Democrat who supported at them and spoke at their events received this treatment and was smeared w those views by mainstream outlets.
Where are the articles with headlines on how several major Dem activists and politicians spoke at a conference organized by an activist who defended Louis Farrakhan and has made countless antisemitic statements??

Weird. Washington Post somehow skipped that article.
Just to show extent to which this is a ridiculous smear, here are some of the other people that have spoke at these conferences: Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Pat Caddell, Ben Shapiro, Ted Cruz, Charles Payne, Monica Crowley etc etc
That means you could write this same exact article about any of those people. You don’t have to like any of them to recognize that they are mainstream figures on the right and it’s a complete smear to suggest they are complicit in everything DH has said.
