Just hours after finally denouncing neo-Nazis, the misleader of the fact-free world retweets the Patriot Movement funded political dirty trickster and serial hoaxer, Jack Posobiec. From the typically Trumpsterfire-friendly Washington Examiner:

Trump promotes alt-right activist after condemning white supremacists


President Trump retweeted an alt-right activist hours after making a speech condemning white supremacist groups following criticism of his milquetoast criticism of violent acts in Charlottesville, Va.

Trump retweeted — essentially the act of promoting another person's post on Twitter to all the users who follow Trump — Jack Posobiec, an alt-right activist who is a staunch Trump supporter.


Here you can see Posobiec thanking the Presi-dunce for the retweet:



Posobiec was the "Special Projects Director" for Citizens for Trump this past election season. Citizens for Trump had their very own "unity" rally that was originally sponsored by a white nationalist group until under pressure, the group was disinvited.

A White Nationalist Website Is Sponsoring An RNC Rally Featuring Trump Surrogates


The white nationalist website Eternal Sentry is sponsoring an upcoming pro-Trump “unity rally” with longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone and several Trump surrogates. Eternal Sentry is a self-described “altright” website that features racist and anti-Semitic material, repeatedly warns about “White Genocide,” and is produced by a Trump activist who said whites need to “fight back” against African-Americans and “send them back to the mud-huts they so desperately and obviously desire.”


More recently, he was fired from the far-right alt-media outlet Rebel TV, which frequently provides Proud Boy's founder (and Vice News co-founder), Gavin McInnes, with a platform. Jack was fired for plagiarism. Guess who he plagiarized? None other than the "Unite the Right" organizer, Jason Kessler. From Daily Caller:

The Rebel Media Apologizes Over Jack Posobiec Plagiarism Allegations


The Rebel Media has apologized over allegations that former employee Jack Posobiec engaged in plagiarism by lifting sections from the video of another political activist.

On Sunday, right-wing political activist Jason Kessler tweeted his March 13 video side by side with an April 20 video The Rebel posted featuring Posobiec, prompting the company to issue an apology.


Time for a picture? Okay, here's one. This is Jack with his pal, Baked Alaska, one of the featured personalities at the Unite the Right rally:



Before Jack was sparking controversy with his briefly held WH Press Pass (Meet Jack Posobiec: The "Alt-Right" Troll With A Press Pass In White House), he was a busily staging hoaxes and pushing dubious conspiracy theories. Notably, he was one of the primary drivers of #pizzagate:

Pizzagate: From rumor, to hashtag, to gunfire in D.C.


Posobiec said he never made any disturbance inside Comet, but the restaurant’s managers saw him take his camera into a back room where a child’s birthday party was underway. It did not seem appropriate for a child’s party to be broadcast on a stranger’s Periscope feed. The manager asked two D.C. police officers who happened to be across the street to assist. Posobiec and his friend “were gently refused service and asked to leave,” said a person familiar with the restaurant’s decision.


Jack was also one half of the duo who interrupted Shakespeare in the Park.

Pro-Trump Protesters Storm ‘Julius Caesar’ Stage In Central Park


“BREAKING: Julius Ceasar Gets SHUTDOWN,” tweeted pro-Trump Pizzagate conspiracist Jack Posobiec, misspelling the play’s name, as Laura Loomer, a right-wing activist, stormed the stage during the assassination scene, in which (spoiler alert) Julius Caesar is assassinated by members of the Roman Senate.

“You are all Goebbels,” Posobiec shouted in the video, referring to the Nazi propaganda minister. “You are inciting terrorists! ... The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands!”


Perhaps the most ironic stunt considering the Commanderp-in-Chief's retweet was a hoax intended to smear protesters. That hoax involved a sign that read "RAPE MELANIA" which was held up — almost certainly by Jack himself — in the middle of a group of protesters. A picture was then taken and posted through the troll network.

BuzzFeed obtained texts of Jack and collaborators plotting their campaign.

Inside The Alt-Right’s Campaign To Smear Trump Protesters As Anarchists


But, BuzzFeed News has learned, the "Rape Melania" sign was not the work of an anti-Trump protester at all. Instead, according to sources, it was the brainchild of a group of Trump supporters led by Jack Posobiec, one of the organizers of the controversial DeploraBall inauguration party and a prominent figure in the pro-Trump internet.

Furthermore, as shown by a series of Posobiec's text messages obtained by BuzzFeed News and confirmed by a source who collaborated with Posobiec, the sign was the culmination of a disinformation campaign by Posobiec and others intended to paint the anti-Trump rallies as violent and out of control.


Don't trust BuzzFeed? The blog Bullspotting gives this hoax a good treatment: The ‘Rape Melania’ Sign Hoax of Jack Posobiec.



Ironically, the biggly Trump wasn't the only Trump to have retweeted Jack. The would-be Russian collaborator, Donald Jr, retweeted hysterical disinformation from Jack.

Chicago is a disaster, good for Trump for trying to bring awareness to this liberal-caused dumpster fire that has taken the lives of thousands of African Americans.

What? Chicago has a gang violence problem? Holy s#. This tweet tonight was the absolute first time I'd heard about it! Wow. THANKS REAL NEWS DONALD! YOU'RE THE BEST!

Come on.

Also, instead of just munching on superficial partisan memes, you might care to read up a bit on the rise of the Rust Belt and the decay its undergoing because of deindustrialization. Or not.

I'm from Ohio, great cities like Warren and Youngstown have been destroyed by de-industrialization. Thanks Globalism.

Found another picture on the Internets. Here's Trump source Posobiec hanging out with Richard B. Spencer:

Well, there you go. You're from Ohio, you really should have about as much first-hand experience with deindustrialization as anyone.

Actually, the guy has a valid point. Don't know who he is, don't care, but his question is valid and worthy of ponder.

I imagine that's why Trump shared it, eh?

I do. I'm not from Illinois though, and I'm assuming you are saying the horrors in Chicago are caused by de-industrialization. You're an intelligent guy, what is your opinion on why de-industrialization is happening, what is causing it, what should/can be done to fix it? I'm genuinely interested in your opinion. If you feel this will derail your thread of it's original topic of bashing Trump, please feel free to pm me, I'm sincerely interested.

There are higher crime and murder rates in other states/cities. Trump focuses on Chicago since Obama lived in the state. No other reason. LOL

You've laid bare the poster and the POTUS horrible decision to retweet the guy. I'd say alot of wasted energy but that's my opinion.

Anything on the message? I mean wall to wall media coverage over N. Korea last week, this weekend and probably week, the MSM will focus on not the poor woman who was killed, outside of a political point anyway, and the groups that no one really cares about anyway.

Meanwhile, in Chicago..STILL!

The woman killed in VA is well covered. Chicago still what? It still doesn;t have the highest crime or murder rate.

The rest of Posobiec's nonsense notwithstanding, what Trump re-Tweeted from him is the stark, plain facts that every Leftist turns their back on.
Not sure if that is by design or stupidity but it's a valid question....where is the outrage about Chicago?
We know who the real, paid staged protesters are and the majority were from the Left, so we could go all night long about that.
But hey, what the hell....more hate from you guys to deflect away from the valid issue of nonstop violence in the Leftist disaster zone called Chicago.
Who needs North Korea?...there is a war going on there.

Meh. Chicago is one of the 2 or 3 great cities of the USA. You can't deny there is a big mess in Chicago, do you? Just because there may be more crime in some other places, doesn't mean Trump shouldn't point out the disaster in one of the iconic cities of the USA.

Again, good God, Chicago doesn;t have the highest crime or murder rate. Why the focus on Chicago? Why not start at the ciity with the highest rates?

Yeah, he just called them "thugs" and "evil", if only he could say something bad about them.

If he did, haven;t seen it, but if he called out the white supremacists, IT TOOK HIM LONG ENOUGH.

Waco, TX has the highest murder rate per capita. Chicago is nowhere near that. Wonder why Trump focuses on Chicago?

I didn't say it was.

Are you easily dismissing it?
