A photo recently surfaced where I appeared with Chelsea Manning, the whistle-blower, and a diverse group of media personalities who support Donald Trump including a latina, a homosexual, a jew, an immigrant, and a transgendered person. I myself am Jewish.
I was the unknown person in the photograph. Because various political advocates were upset that Chelsea Manning appeared with Trump supporters, they investigated and discovered my identity for the express purpose of a public shaming.
Lacy MacAuley, an admitted member of known domestic terror group Antifa, libelously spread false information about me in an attempt to get me fired. She tweeted that I was a white supremacist and known associate of Richard Spencer.
She then notified my employer, the District of Columbia Public Charter School Board (DC PCSB), and they’ve placed me on administrative leave pending an investigation.
I 100% deny any association, affiliation with, or support of the alt-right, Richard Spencer, racism, fascism, or anything else other than a liberal Democracy where each citizen has equal protection under the law.
Any notion I am a white supremacist is a complete fabrication, while the opposite is unquestionably true: I am open minded, I love everyone, and I wish nothing more than for our country to come together.
I have written a book on these very subjects, called Democrat to Deplorable. And it will be released this spring.
And today, I am the victim of a vicious smear campaign indicative of the nasty times we live in.
What do I believe?
I believe everyone has equal rights and should be treated fairly. I believe we should come together and find unity. I believe we all need to find a way to live together because that’s our best future.
But now I am being libeled as a white supremacist when in fact, I am anti-hate and abhor the alt-right.
I have been openly critical of the alt-right, Richard Spencer, and ethno-nationalists in general. I wrote several articles against Richard Spencer and the alt-right here, and here.
On January 20th, 2017 I even confronted him in public as documented here by the Atlantic.
Rosie Gray of the Atlantic, Oliver Darcy then of the Business Insider, and Andrew Marantz of the New Yorker all witnessed my altercation with Spencer.
I don’t just disavow Richard Spencer, I’ve openly fought him.
I have worked to shine the light on Spencer’s disgusting views and ensure there was no perceived association because there is none.
The New Yorker wrote about my condemnation for white supremacists and my public disagreements with them here.
Why was I at the White House when Richard Spencer was there?
I covered a protest by the alt-right because it was newsworthy and I expected Antifa to show up and have a conflict with Spencer. I went and periscoped it live, and wrote it about it afterward.
Do journalists share the views of all the people they cover? Of course not. This is no different.
Who am I?
Rather than shriek on twitter all day, I’m actually on the ground improving society. I have worked ten years in the charter school community, turning around some of the worst performing schools in the city, ones that served virtually 100% African American students.
I have succeeded where many others have failed in improving the educations of our city’s poor black youth.
And I am now a victim.
Is this where our world is today? Is this the level of discourse we’ve devolved to?
Must each side fight an all-out war intent on total destruction?
What is happening to me is another example of why #DemocratToDeplorable is happening to the nation. The progressive left cannot and will not listen to any dissent. Instead, it resorts to public shame, character assassination, and hostility.
Today I am the victim, tomorrow it could be you. If I, as a liberal Obama voter, can be attacked like this…you must wonder, are you next?
Shut up, white supremacist moron.
You sound like nuanced “thinker”.
Why are you falsely smearing someone? Do you wanna get sued for slander & libel as well?
Go read his medium posts. He is a total racist.
Not worried, bro.
He’s not worried Chuck b/c he doesn’t have a job and I don’t think you can get a judgement against a ssi check.
Looks like someone didn’t hide the crayons from you as a child when you started to eat them.
Keep up the great commentary, you really make such a convincing argument , Good job
I don’t argue with white supremacist morons. What would be the point?
Are you at liberty to explain how you came to be photographed with a diverse group of media personalities who support Donald Trump? I understand this was at Escape the Room DC, where according to the sign you’re holding in the photo, you NAILED IT. But since you obviously don’t fit the political profile, were you perhaps like Chelsea Manning there to “gather intel” on these unsuspecting alt-right luminaries?
Manning wasn’t there to “gather intel”? She was there to party like everyone else. She was invited & bought a ticket herself. & no, this wasn’t a gathering of “alt-right luminaries”. No host is part of any of that (there were no Richard Spencer types there). I know this because I was at the party too.
As for that photo you’re describing: that’s just a photo of friends. Just friends, hanging out via a social outing like anyone else would. Please get your facts straight next time.
that party wasn’t an alt right party you ignoramus
You might be a “limited purpose public figure”, which is someone who “thrust themselves to the forefront of particular public controversies in order to influence the resolution of the issues involved.”. You are justly proud of your fight against the alt-right.
Against? Go read his medium posts. He is one of them.
“he is one of them”
says a pure soy boy!
how’s your latte?
snowflake safe spacer, HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
PROBABLY A SODOMITE AS WELL.
The Alt-Right is explicitly ethno-nationalist. It doesn’t matter how much someone criticizes the current left-dominated order, or how enthusiastic they are for Trump, that doesn’t make them alt-right. The attempted association is meant to pressure critics of the left and supporters of the president into silence. See: https://voxday.blogspot.com.au/2016/08/what-alt-right-is.html
Haha! You moron. I for one dont want Nazis near any school board. Stop red pilling snowflake. You want to hold those views then deal with the consequences. That isnt libel. Its true. Your writings on medium are gross. So what if you hate Spencer when you turn around and hate other groups. Fairbanks? Cern? Just stop.
This picture of your mother seems irrelevant.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
I’m sorry jack, as the local far right contrarian i find this whole thing kind of amusing. expelling energy on antifragile nonentities like spencer is a waste of time, and to paraphrase scriptures, your tweets and blogs have disintegrated, and their ink will be used as evidence against you. this age is quickly approaching its final hour and you will not be permitted to hold rank on the left, while being eminently unqualified to join the right. not a good position to be in.
Denying you’re a racist bigot is confirmation you’re a racist bigot because that’s what a racist bigot would say.
Mr. Murphy, there is nothing you can say or do; not even saying ‘I work with inner-city black kids’ (a cringe worthy denial) and ‘I’m Jewish’ will save you from the vengeance of the liberal lynch mob.
There is no redemption.
There is no second chance.
Your hate bio has been written for you by others and there’s nothing you can do to change that.
You’ve spoken in good faith, and your reward is to be slandered and shamed. I really would like to believe that you liberals are right, and honesty can triumph over violence in the long run. But it looks awfully like we each gotta find out tribes.
I really hope you’re right.
Please sue her.
We all know that Democrats are the real racists and Israel is Our Greatest Ally!
Doesn’t matter Jack. You’re still a Nazi. I don’t care if you suck black dick, you’re still a Nazi. Get used to it.
