"Journalism," 2019: The Daily Beast Doxes Black Trump Supporter Behind Nancy Pelosi Meme Video

The Daily Beast doxed a working class African-American Trump supporter on Saturday for sharing a meme video making fun of Nancy Pelosi on Facebook.

Daily Beast writer Kevin Poulsen wrote on Twitter: "NEW: I went looking for the Russian troll behind the 'Drunk Pelosi' viral video hoax. Turns out he's an itinerant forklift operator from the Bronx who's been secretly running hard-right 'news' outlets across social media for years. Also, not Russian."

The article is sickening propaganda boasting about tracking the poor guy down and bringing him to the table by threatening his livelihood as a working class forklift operator.

Here's an excerpt:
On May 22, a Donald Trump superfan and occasional sports blogger from the Bronx named [REDACTED] posted a video clip of Nancy Pelosi on his personal Facebook page. The clip showed Pelosi at her most excitable, stammering during a press conference as she voiced frustration over an abortive infrastructure meeting with the president. [Redacted's] commentary on the video was succinct: “Is Pelosi drunk?”

Thirteen minutes later, a Facebook official told The Daily Beast, [Redacted] posted a very different Pelosi video to a Facebook page called Politics WatchDog—one of a series of hyperpartisan news operations [Redacted] runs (with help, he claims).

[...] At first [he] didn't respond to emails, phone calls, text messages, Facebook messages and a direct message over Instagram, and he blocked this reporter on Twitter. On Friday he called back, explaining that he was worried over the prospect of being publicly linked to the video fakery.

"I'm in New York City," he said. "Very liberal. People make judgments. I just don't want to be linked to a conservative right-winger and be potentially denied services and stuff... People are nasty. You should see some of the messages that are coming in."

As he tells it, [he] gravitated to conservatism after seeing first hand the failure of liberal policies during the Obama era. "I've traveled around and seen too many things, and I don't like the way things have been run," he said. A key personal turning point came years ago when he was working in a warehouse in Queens doing "forklift work, loading, unloading, labeling," he said "Basic stuff." He'd started the job off-the-books, but eventually became an official hire. Then the managers began supplementing their workforce with undocumented immigrants willing to do the same work for less, he claimed.
"Drag an African-American day laborer into the spotlight and try to ruin his life because he made a trivial video about Nancy Pelosi," Glenn Greenwald commented. "The only worse part is how you're celebrating yourselves like you did something brave and important. Nauseating."

Big League Politics reported that Kevin Poulsen is a convicted felon who was "previously banned from the Internet for committing espionage against the United States":

MSNBC contributor, former intelligence agent and Russiagate conspiracy peddler Clint Watts praised Poulsen for doxing the poor man, saying "Hats off to Kevin Poulsen. Great work."

Earlier this year, The Daily Beast also went after a working class female pastry chef at Mar-a-Lago for believing in "Q-Anon."

I wonder why more and more people are rapidly coming to the conclusion that the media are the enemy of the people?

The Daily Beast is is owned by the multibillion-dollar megacorporation InterActiveCorp.

Here's a list of their holdings:

IAC had $4.65 billion in total assets in 2016 and this is what they're spending it on -- hunting down the lowliest of political dissidents for making fun of Nancy Pelosi.

As I reported last year, many of the most popular Resistance icons have been openly fantasizing about subjecting Trump supporters to show trials in the future if they ever seize back power.

When the descents of Trotskyites are telling you in so many words that they want to revive the show trial system they had in the Soviet Union and multibillion-dollar megacorporations are funding "news" organizations dedicated to hunting down political dissidents it might be something worth getting alarmed over.

UPDATE: A man claiming to be the victim of the Daily Beast's hit piece says he was misquoted and their article was filled with falsehoods (his Twitter account is from 2011).
