A statist, authoritarian populist progressive like Donald Trump has far more in common with liberals than with conservatives. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that his enablers have collaborated with one of the same dirty tricksters whose shenanigans on behalf of the Shrillary campaign Project Veritas has brought to light:
A liberal activist and organizer coordinated with reporters from the conservative news site Breitbart during the primaries to cover his disruptions of events for candidates such as Sen. Marco Rubio.
Breitbart is right-wing. Whether it is conservative in any meaningful sense is increasingly open to dispute.
Aaron Black, an associate with Democracy Partners and a former Occupy Wall Street organizer, worked with the pro-Trump site Breitbart, tipping it off about his stunts, exchanging raw video and coordinating coverage, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.
Black boasts in a Project Veritas video of organizing protests that led to a Chicago Trump rally getting canceled in March. But he doesn’t always work against Trump.
According to the source, Black coordinated with Breitbart via email, phone and in person, including when he dressed up as a robot and trolled Marco Rubio’s events. The relationship was described as very friendly. An article subsequently published on Breitbart featured video footage of a physical confrontation between Black and Rubio’s New Hampshire campaign chairman.
“He worked directly with Breitbart’s political team on the ground in the primary states to sabotage Marco Rubio & Ted Cruz, and elect Trump as nominee of [the Republican] party,” the source told POLITICO. “[Black] was coordinating with [Breitbart’s] top staff to rabble rouse against Rubio at rallies.”
The “binary choice” B.S. we constantly have rammed down our throats by Trump supporters obviously did not apply back when Breitbart was pushing Trump at the expense of conservatives.
Rubio was likely a common foe for both liberals and Breitbart. As hacked WikiLeaks emails from the Clinton campaign recently revealed, the Clinton campaign feared going up against Rubio in the general election.
Rubio would be winning in a landslide right now. Instead, Shrillary is — and Breitbart chairman Steve Bannon is well-positioned to exploit his position as the Trump campaign CEO to advance his media ambitions.
