Breitbart: Beck is a “Coward”. And a long overdue thank you…

I even stole Greg Gutfeld's look

Most riffs between public figures are short lived and usually die out slowly with an uneventful fizzle. But the Glenn Beck problem seems to be getting worse and the only person holding him accountable, regarding anything substantial, is Andrew Breitbart.

“He’s dead to me” – Breitbart regarding Beck

Take a listen to Breitbart’s appearance on Stephen K. Bannon’s Victory Sessions excerpt here. While I usually do not endorse the circular firing squad Andrew is, and has been, totally justified on the topics he addresses. And to date Beck has not had the integrity to even attempt to set the record straight.

The latest issue with Beck comes from comments he made regarding Tea Party support for Newt Gingrich on Judge Napolitano’s Freedom Watch. Beck makes the comparison that since Gingrich is a Progressive, much like Obama, then the only justification for this support is obviously based on race. It is truly despicable. I advise you to watch the video at here at Big Government. Andrew also rails on Beck, and rightly so, for throwing him under the bus regarding the Shirley Sherrod incident as well as revisiting the slimeball tactics of stealing bloggers work and giving no attribution. This part of the story affects me personally as I was one of the bloggers that Beck didnt just borrow my work but straight out plagiarized seven paragraphs from my article with no reference to the source.

The expose was done by The Daily Caller’s Matthew Boyle and listed off an embarrassing number of incidents where Beck had lifted material from others. All your favorites are listed as victims: Pajama’s Media, Rebel Pundit, Media Research Center (MRC), Mandy Nagy (Liberty Chick), Verum Serum, Pamella Geller, and yours truly. [You can read about Beck and Staff plagiarism here] Two days prior Glenn Beck had featured my article regarding the collusion between the State Department and Egyptian activists on his nationally syndicated radio show [Video Here]. This was the only time he gave any attribution; after that is was plagiarism and low level ripoff. Furthermore my series on Egypt and the State Department’s activities in fomenting a revolution showed that others were concerned their actions would trigger such an event. It was so explosive that it formed the foundation of Beck’s week-long tv special. There again my work was lifted with no attribution. It was a terrible shame because I couldve advised them and covered important details that they missed.

A Special Thanks to Andrew

I wanted to thank Andrew for two reasons. First and foremost for taking the time to give me an interview on his book “Righteous Indignation.” My page views and the payment I received for the interview from Yahoo News made up for the page views I lost due to Beck’s plagiarism. However, I think the best part of our conversation came when Andrew told me exactly what he was thinking when it came down to brass tacks. He stood up for his writers, and other writers that he did not even know, because it was the right thing to do. He could’ve easily brushed aside Becks trespasses, lies, and ethical violations to absorb a possibly larger following by just hopping out from underneath the Beck Bus and getting on board. Instead he pulled himself out from underneath the bus and chased it down the street punching the windows out. The audience can get his feelings about this verbatim from the 4th part of our conversation here. (Included is the video of Beck’s immature response-a must see)

More importantly I wanted to thank Andrew for keeping up the fight. This has been going on for nearly a year now. With the way that Andrew addresses these issues you would think it happened yesterday. And every time he he revisits these injustices from the “coward” he brings all of us who have been wronged along with him and relights the fire. For me to address my issue alone sounds like another blogger whining; something I have done fairly well with avoiding here. With Andrew sticking to his guns he fights along side of me and the others who had the displeasure of crossing paths with Beck and his dishonest campaign to make himself the center of attention; at any cost. And that is where the difference lies. Beck’s fight is to save face and maintain the facade of an influential personality in the political spectrum. Andrew is the true influential personality because no facade would suit him nor would there be time to construct one proper. He is too wrapped up in fighting the good fight all while leading with his chin. This thank you was long overdue.

Ameripundit Responds to my Accusations…And not one fact can be proven.

A while back I had a run in with a fake conservative/fake twitter account @Ameripundit. In most respects he was a typical troll except he was a conservative who attacked other conservatives for no reason. Some attacks were based on race while others were misogynistic. Not only was this strange but when confronted he began to delete his tweets. I screen-capped them before he had a chance to. Basically, he got trolled softly.

For your review:

My Original Post in which I confront @Ameripundit, catch him being racist and misogynistic, and screen cap the whole conversation can be FOUND HERE

Now compare that to Ameripundits follow up post. (Be careful of the script) He cant prove a single thing he claims. Why you ask? Simple, no defense exists for him. He cant even show screen caps of our tweets because he rushed to delete them 🙂 Not a single claim can be backed up. I simply asked him how and why he was attacking someone I knew personally for no reason @RachaelJ83 who was at the time in the process of  becoming a contributor on this blog (which is now finalized) . His response was to DELETE EVERYTHING

Ameripundit claims that he is from New Jersey and was part of the New Jersey Tea Party. Here is the problem:

1) He is not from New Jersey like he claims (sorry “mate” youre not)

2) I have 38 sources directly involved with the Tea Party movement in New Jersey alone who DO NOT FOLLOW HIM AND NEVER HEARD OF “John van Metren” aka Ameripundit

The problem is this: I know everyone and Ameripundit knows no one. Furthermore no one knows him.

How you can win $50 for Retweeting!

A few weeks back I ran a contest to bring awareness to the Ameripundit profile and his behaviour (I’ll use his “Queen’s English” spelling). This contest will be similar. I will make a new post revealing details of Ameripundits new racist and misogynistic attacks, entirely unprovoked, on fellow Conservative women. To get entered you will only need to tweet the post and include @dmatthewstewart and #teamrachael. When I see it in my mentions I will respond that you are entered in the raffle.

PRIZES

In the last contest I offered a $25 prize for those participating. This time around I am doubling it and making it $50! You can receive payment any way you like. It can be paypal, cash in the mail, gift card of your choice, or even in Bit Coin. Whatever you want! Our last winner can give testament as to just how easy I am to work with when it comes to pay time!

Common Ground

Dear Ameripundit,

Truth be told I am still willing to give you (Ameripundit) the benefit of the doubt. But in order to do so we must meet on common ground in a neutral environment. If he is truly a conservative like he claims to be thtn we can meet on talk radio. I will let him choose the moderator, the time, and the show. If he does not have one in mind which can host us to hash out our problems I will appear on one he can create on Blog Talk Radio for free. I promise. I also promise to be civil and fair. Anyone who really knows me will tell you that I am always fair. I will not shout you down, I will not name call, I will not cut you off while you are making a point. In order to ensure this the moderator of tour choice can receive payment from me via paypal of $1,000 and transfer payment to you for every time I violate my own rules. I am not anonymous and I do not hide. Ever. This is clear from my contact page  and I have no reason NOT to meet you in a formal debate. And you can still remain anonymous, I care not about this. I have already ID’ed you and it is in the encrypted file on my first post on you. I will allow you to make the rules, assign the moderator, and “set the record straight” Join me wont you?
