Here's SPLC's background into #VDare's relationship with eugenicist John Tanton, who died in July (but not before he helped start that publication) #TantonNetwork…
"The next year, Tanton apparently helped Brimelow conceive and organize, the white nationalist and nativist website Brimelow still runs today, according to a Feb. 25, 1998, Tanton memo that refers to the site as "our enterprise.""
It's been going on a while…

"Yes, Maier and LaRocca really had gotten engaged (they have since gotten married). And they really were dog owners. But they weren’t trying to turn Wyoming blue. They were undercover conservative operatives, the paper discovered...
...who had been trained at a ranch belonging to Blackwater founder Erik Prince by a former MI6 officer with ties to the right-wing provocateur James O’Keefe. Maier’s mother worked for Prince. His uncle was Glenn Beck."
Remember how I say that there is a ton of nasty and corrosive disinformation appearing in what I call woo spaces (New Age stuff, mostly), those not frequently haunted by fact-checkers? Who do you think it seeding it? Freaks like these.

Hey check out Richmond police admitting they lied to the public about "needing" to use teargas on protestors in 2020 (on Friday afternoon on a holiday weekend)
Here's why they did it, because they lied and no one should ever trust anything law enforcement says unless it comes with clear proof and/or citations. It's for your own safety
I’m so goddamn angry. What an utter abdication of public trust.

Competition between journalism outfits makes us all better! We need more journalism everywhere, not boring old monopolies who do nothing but drop the ball on the most important stories facing the world because their hidebound editors and publishers don't understand them
And putting everything behind paywalls because Google and Facebook conspired to take the money WE earned and bleed us all dry then fed us all the line that it was just the internet, so sorry, that's the way it goes

Hey @washingtonpost, this story is a failure to properly inform your readers if you let them think that the Thomas More Society is simply "a conservative organization" rather than the org that brought in Jenna Ellis to try to topple U.S. elex…
Here's how you describe it in this story, @washingtonpost Image
Nowhere does it mention or even link to this 2020 story nor any other like it, which does your readers a massive disservice. This is also the Thomas More Society, @washingtonpost…

Which is why I never listened to their bullshit excuses and came out swinging against them from the start. I knew what they were.
Too bad all the "adults in the room" in the fact-checking networks and the journalism outfits didn't listen to me. I remember trying to tell SPJ San Diego that Facebook was evil and they all laughed like I was telling a particularly good joke. Later I found out they took $
For this stupid bullshit, as if it wasn't obviously just to get journalists on the titty just like all the other money exchanges. You goddamn useless clowns

"Just because you jump across a state line doesn’t mean your home state doesn’t have jurisdiction,” said Peter Breen, vice president and senior counsel for the Thomas More Society. “It’s not a free abortion card when you drive across the state line.” 1/2
2/2 This is also the Thomas More Society. They're election deniers. Story from 2020. It's always the same people, because it's a far right power grab…
