The "I'm Rich & Afraid of Everything" crowd of far-Right TV pundits is horrified DC rabble protested outside of Tucker Carlson's house tonight + Twitter has now suspended @SmashRacismDC from the platform. Carlson has long history of working with Alt-Right + white nationalists.
In May, it was revealed that the Daily Caller, Tucker's online publication, had published up to 20 articles from Alt-Right neo-Nazi David Hilton on "antifa, George Soros, "identity politics" + "cultural Marxism." One column was titled "Donald Trump Is America’s Julius Caesar."
Then in September, another Alt-Right author who wrote 'No Campus for White Men' was fired by Tucker's Daily Caller, Scott Greer. Greer in his spare time was also writing for Richard Spencer's publication Radix. rightwingwatch.org/post/white-nat…
But while DC was quick to can Greer for his Spencer ties, it has no problem giving space to long time Spencer friend + white nationalist, Peter Brimelow. In 2016, Brimelow was on the panel at the DC Alt-Right conference where attendees gave Nazis salutes to "Hail Trump!"
The Daily Caller has even gone so far as to publish Peter Brimelow, who long as worked for the white nationalist group, V-DARE, in an essay defending white nationalist Republican, Steve King. dailycaller.com/2017/03/14/the…
Perhaps most notoriously, the Daily Caller also once had on their payroll Jason Kessler, the Proud Boy and white nationalist who organized the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville. Kessler even covered an Alt-Right rally he spoke at. His articles were later deleted.
On top of employing Jason Kessler in the lead up to Unite the Right, the Daily Caller also published an article encouraging motorists to run over protesters, an article that was deleted after Unite the Right. money.cnn.com/2017/08/15/med…
Speaking of Proud Boys, Carlson has also been a guest on Gavin McInness' show in the past and has taken photos alongside members of his far-Right gang. McInness has written for a variety of white nationalist publications and got a job at Taki's Magazine via Richard Spencer.
Martina Markota, who makes videos for the Daily Caller also was exposed in a Salon expose for having clear links to the far-Right and the Alt-Right and a look at her Twitter account showed mutuals with groups like Identity Evropa. salon.com/2017/11/10/dai…
Tucker has even RTed social media content from neo-Nazi websites such as Red ICE TV, only to quickly delete it once it began to blow up online. In this screen shot, the Red ICE hosts lament the fact that Tucker didn't leave up their content on his Twitter TL.
Other former Daily Caller writers include white nationalist Llana Mercer, who also has written in white nationalist publications such as American Renaissance.
Famously the Daily Caller also once payed Alt-Right troll Ian Miles Cheong to write + Tucker Carlson once had him on his Fox News show to talk about It's Going Down. Cheong has appeared on Alt-Right podcasts with neo-Nazis + has long promoted Alt-Right memes and talking points.
According to the @splcenter, "Two Daily Caller contributors, including a senior investigative reporter, were recently announced as speakers at the upcoming white nationalist H.L. Mencken Club conference organized by Paul Gottfried, a godfather of the Alt-Right."
Tucker has also, with a huge platform, gone out of his way to platform and promote the Alt-Right safe space Gab, which is an open organizing and recruiting ground for neo-Nazi groups like Atomwaffen and people like the #PittsburghSynagogue killer.
Moreover, Carlson has done more to popularize Alt-Right fear over "diversity" and "white genocide," more so than any other "mainstream" person on the Right. Could it be that there is a connection between his work with open white nationalists and the Alt-Right + his own ideas?
