On Sunday, Joy Reid welcomed terrorism expert Malcolm Nance and former Breitbart.com media strategist Kurt Bardella to discuss right-wing conspiracy monger and provocateur Jack Posobiec.
President Donald Trump retweeted Posobiec — one of the progenitors of the “Pizzagate” conspiracy, which alleged that Hillary Clinton was running a child sex ring from the basement of a D.C. pizza parlor — last Saturday in the aftermath of the death of anti-racism protester Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, VA.
Reid pointed out that Posobiec inserted himself into an MSNBC focus panel in the summer of 2016 and since then has gone on to spread disinformation and lies, as well as to participate in disruptive protests like interrupting a Central Park production of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar.”
“He is a provocateur of the alt-right,” said Nance. “His job is to go around, I mean, he creates conspiracy theories.”
Furthermore, Posobiec may have been involved in the leaking of purloined emails from the candidate of French Pres. Emanuel Macron. Nance said that this will be gravely damaging to Posobiec’s career as a Navy Reserve officer.
In fact, the Navy has yanked Posobiec’s security clearance after discovering his role in political disinformation.
“This does not bode well for his future,” said Nance.
Posobiec was also caught holding up a “Rape Melania” sign at an anti-Trump rally in an effort to discredit liberals.
“This guy keeps popping up like a right-wing Forrest Gump,” said Reid, “and then you find out he is a Navy reservist who used to have a security clearance.”
