Conservatism Inc Allies With Liberal Media to Take Down Nick Fuentes, Cancel Michelle Malkin

Conservatism Inc's leading "influencers" which regularly rail against "safe spaces" and "cancel culture" are working with the liberal media to silence Catholic conservative commentator Nick Fuentes for disrupting their safe spaces by having his supporters ask them hard questions.

They're also demanding best-selling conservative author Michelle Malkin be canceled for defending Fuentes's free speech rights and supporting the "Groyper War."

The Drudge Report carried two articles on Nick Fuentes, Michelle Malkin and the Groyper War on Sunday.

The first was a Media Matters-style hit piece from The Hill's Jonathan Easley which read like it was written by TPUSA working in concert with Right Wing Watch.

From The Hill, "Conservatives seek to stifle new 'alt-right' movement steeped in anti-Semitism":
A fringe group of far-right activists have been disrupting conservative and pro-Trump events in recent weeks, drawing rebukes from mainstream Republicans who are eager to separate the party from white nationalists and alt-right racists.

A small but vocal group of young men led by 21-year-old broadcaster Nicholas Fuentes received national attention this week after heckling Donald Trump Jr. at an event in California, where he was promoting his new book “Triggered.”

Fuentes and others on the far right have been publishing calendars of events held by Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, conservative media stars Ben Shapiro and David Rubin and others, including Trump Jr. and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), in an effort to have their followers infiltrate and disrupt the events.

The alt-right activists view Kirk and Shapiro as insufficiently conservative on issues like immigration and claim to be carrying the mantle for President Trump. Members often show up at the events wearing red Make America Great Again hats and Fuentes’s show is called “America First” in a nod to the president’s popular slogan.

Shapiro, who is Jewish, and others have described the disruptions as an insidious effort to smuggle racist and anti-Semitic ideologies into the conservative mainstream.

At a speech at Stanford University this week, Shapiro lashed out at Fuentes, calling him a “garbage human being” whose views are “obviously white supremacist garbage.”

[...] Fuentes’s followers are called “Groypers” and identify themselves with the image of a fat, green frog, who looks similar to the original alt-right “Pepe” character.

Fuentes’s YouTube show has been a factory for bigoted, anti-Semitic and racist content.

The 21-year old attended the “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017, and later posted on his Facebook page: “The ruthless transnational elite know a tidal wave of white identity is coming and know that once the word gets out they will not be able to stop us. The fire rises.”

Fuentes has lashed out at Rubin, the conservative YouTube star, who is Jewish and gay.

“You want to talk to Jewy Jewstein?,” Fuentes said. “I’m David Rubin and this is the gay Jewish show. Today we’ve got a Jew.”

And in another anti-Semitic segment, Fuentes questioned whether the Holocaust took place, while likening the burning bodies of Jews to cookies baking in an oven.

“The math doesn’t seem to add up there,” Fuentes said. “I don’t think you’d result in 6 million. Maybe 200 to 300 thousand cookies.”

[...] To the surprise of some longtime conservative media figures, Fuentes’s cause has found an ally in Michelle Malkin, the former Fox News contributor. Malkin did not return a request for comment.

But for the most part, conservative media has been sounding the alarm about the need for the party to banish Fuentes and his followers.
Lets put those descriptions together.

America Firsters are "a fringe, small group of bigoted, far-right, racist, alt right, white nationalist, white supremacist, anti-semetic holocaust deniers."

Their grift-right opponents are "mainstream Republicans" and "conservative media stars."

The Hill finished by retconning Crenshaw's threatening rhetoric towards the conservatives who questioned him during a public "Prove Me Wrong" event last week:
After the “Groypers” confronted Crenshaw at a public event in Arizona, the congressman said that he felt sorry for the young protesters.

Crenshaw predicted they would grow up to regret having been captured forever on video and revealed as racists.

“This is the alt right 2.0 because the alt right was discredited,” Crenshaw said. “So what they do is try to cloak themselves in some logical nationalism or MAGA-hat wearing America First rhetoric, which a lot of conservatives agree with, and then they use that to cloak their anti-Semitic leanings, and their racist leanings, and it’s pretty gross. You’re going to regret this.”
Fuentes responded to The Hill's piece on Twitter:

The second article, which Drudge shared under the title, "Fuentes Rising..." was a similar though slightly less biased hit piece from Nick Anderson in The Washington Post.

From The Washington Post, "Far-right agitators roil the conservative movement on college campuses in battle to define Trumpism":
Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro revised his usual bash-the-leftists script in a speech this month to a packed auditorium at Stanford University.

He still mocked the "radical left," but on that evening, Shapiro unloaded on far-right figures who traffic in white supremacy and anti-Semitism. "Pure, unbridled, vile garbage," he called it.

A few days later, the far right derailed a conservative event on another campus. Donald Trump Jr., son of the president, had come to the University of California at Los Angeles to promote his book "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us." Chanting "Q-and-A!" far-right protesters jeered organizers who apparently had decided to block questions from the audience. The event was abruptly cut short, a humbling scene for Trump Jr.

These episodes illuminated tensions within the conservative political movement as far-right activists - including followers of a 21-year-old YouTube flamethrower named Nicholas Fuentes - seek influence among young Republicans on campuses and elsewhere ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

At stake, analysts say, is how President Donald Trump's youngest voters define Trumpism. Will they embrace white nationalism and similar far-right causes - or reject them?

"Part of this is an internecine war within conservatism," said Nicole Hemmer, a Columbia University scholar and author of "Messengers of the Right," a 2016 book on conservative media. "Who is the true follower of Donald Trump? That's the fight you're seeing."

Fuentes, a Boston University dropout who lives in the Chicago suburbs, has emerged as a champion of those on the right who believe mainstream conservatism - in their words, "Conservative Inc." - has gone astray. He attended the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, but denies he is a neo-Nazi or a white nationalist.

On his "America First" YouTube show, Fuentes espouses "demographic realism." That means he takes the hardest line possible against immigration: "We're slamming the door so hard that people's faces are shattering," Fuentes says. He also expresses fear about what will happen to America as its population becomes much less white - "dramatic and radical change," he says, "that will come with not insignificant consequences and not all of them good."

Fuentes on his Internet show denounces same-sex marriage and "transgenderism" as "deviancy," and he questions U.S. foreign aid to Israel. In January, Fuentes likened the Holocaust to a cookie-baking operation led by the Cookie Monster in a video monologue that implied he questions the death toll of 6 million Jews.

Fuentes said in a telephone interview Thursday with The Washington Post that the Cookie Monster video was meant to be a "lampoon." He said he acknowledges that the Holocaust was the systematic persecution and murder of 6 million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. "I've never denied the Holocaust," he said.

Fuentes said he is Catholic and that his ethnic background includes Mexican heritage through his father's ancestors. In a video after the August shootings in El Paso, Texas, that left 22 dead, including Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, Fuentes declared: "The easiest way for Mexicans to not get shot and killed in Walmart is for them to not [expletive] be here."

Asked about that statement and others, Fuentes said in an email: "I don't feel compelled to explain every 'shocking' phrase I've uttered in the over 1,000 hours of content I've produced in the span of four years. It's kind of missing the point."

His show's audience, Fuentes said, is "zoomers," those born after the mid-1990s in what is known as "Generation Z."

Michelle Malkin, a conservative blogger, expressed support for Fuentes and others "seeking answers to tough questions about where America is headed," according to prepared remarks for a speech she gave Thursday at UCLA. Asserting that she would not disavow Fuentes, Malkin praised "the new generation of America Firsters exposing the big lies of the anti-American open borders establishment."

She added: "If I was your mom, I'd be proud as hell."
Michelle Malkin was fired by the Young America's Foundation on Sunday over her bold speech last week at UCLA defending the free speech rights of Fuentes and the young conservatives asking hard questions of Conservatism Inc.

Her firing was cheered by The Bulwark's Jim Swift (who works with Jonah Goldberg):

Fox News's Guy Benson:

Ben Shapiro's Daily Wire crew:

Former NRO writer David French:

CRTV's Jordan Schachtel:

Both Fuentes and Malkin forcefully defended themselves against Conservatism Inc's organized smear campaign:

Conservatism Inc cannot tolerate anyone from the right questioning their grift operation and threatening the agenda of their donors.

That's all this is about.

As Dan Crenshaw recently said, "Republicans are the party of Uber" and the interests of our ruling oligarchs must come first!
