#metoo allegedly false accusations crackpottery false accusations men who should not ever be with women ever misogyny rape rape culture

Burned by phony “Me Too” claims against Robert Mueller, The Gateway Pundit has moved on to accusing Dems of “Satanic Magick”

The Dems: All of them witches?

By David Futrelle

The last time I wrote about far-right fake-news site The Gateway Pundit, it was because one of the site’s writers couldn’t stop referring to the men in the famous Honduran refugee caravan as “virile.” Yesterday, the site was in the news for a rather different reason: for posting what it called “EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS” allegedly showing that a “very credible witness” was about to come forward and accuse Special Counsel Robert Mueller of rape.

Or maybe not. Over the course of the day yesterday, the story fell apart in such dramatic fashion that The Gateway Pundit — which has a long history of pushing dubious and sometimes outright false allegations — took their post and the “EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS” down, announcing that they would be “investigating these accusations” — something most publications would do before publishing dramatic accusations, not afterwards — as well as “looking into” the 20-year-old far-right trickster Jacob Wohl, apparently one of the masterminds behind the smears.

The collapse of the story was quite something to see. A professor at Vermont Law School came forward to say she had been offered money by someone claiming to represent a mysterious firm called Surefire Intelligence to make accusations against Mueller. Several journalists said another woman had told them a similar story.

The clearly misnamed Surefire Intelligence looks to be a phony company concocted by young Wohl out of thin air and stolen profile pictures; one of the company’s alleged contact numbers led to the voicemail box of his mother.  Oh, and it turned out that Mueller had reported for jury duty in DC on the day the alleged rape allegedly took place in New York. The FBI is apparently investigating.

Evidently, Wohl and lobbyist Jack Burkman — a longtime pusher of right-wing conspiracies who was apparently Wohl’s co-conpirator in this laughable scheme — were so convinced that most #MeToo stories are fakes that they figured they could fake one themselves without breaking a sweat and get the credulous media to go along with it.

Nope. Turns out that real journalists — unlike the people behind The Gateway Pundit — actually investigate accusations thoroughly before reporting them. Contrary to what many right-wingers believe, there aren’t squads of feminists running around concocting false accusations against Republicans — mostly because that would be completely anathema to the most basic principles of feminism and female solidarity. But they also know that phony stories would get picked apart instantly.

It seems unlikely that many on the right will learn anything from The Gateway Pundit’s latest humiliation. And The Gateway Pundit clearly hasn’t, at least when it comes to making ludicrous accusations based on nothing.

Consider this lurid story they posted today — and no, it’s not a Halloween joke.

As Democrats’ Deceptive Smears, Illegal Caravans, and Intimidation Mobs Backfire, Will the “Satanic Left” Turn to Its Magick?

Putting aside the sheer shamelessness of accusing the Dems of “deceptive smears” a mere day after pushing the phony Mueller story, let’s consider the substance of this, er, allegation.

First off, it’s not based on any new news — or even new fake news. They didn’t uncover some secret Wicca ceremony amongst Congressional Dems, or photograph Nancy Pelosi in the ceremonial garb of a Satanic priestess. Nope. All their “proof” is old news. Also, it’s not proof.

Here’s the entirety of their alleged evidence of Democratic Satanism, much of which comes from the Podesta emails stolen by the Russians and released by Wikileaks:

  1. The Dem’s (alleged) “deception operations, manipulation tactics, and mob intimidation are … [a]ccording to biblical theology … the very same characteristics and tactics that are classically associated with Satan and his various cohorts.”
  2. Some dude who writes for the National Review calls the Dems the ““Satanic Left.”
  3. Dem insider John Podesta invited a bunch of his fellow Dems to  a so-called “spirit cooking dinner” held by artist Marina Abramovic.
  4. Podesta’s wife once forwarded an email containing the word “Thelema” — a reference to occultist Aleister Crowley’s invented religion.
  5. Hillary Clinton’s former Chief of Staff once made a reference in an email to “sacrificing a chicken in the backyard to Moloch” which the story’s author doesn’t recognize as an obvious joke.
  6. Bill and Hillary Clinton once attended a Voodoo ceremony while visiting Haiti in the 1970s.

That’s it.

Pretty much gives you an idea of what sort of publication The Gateway Pundit is. Roughly as credible as the late, lamented Weekly World News, but much less entertaining.

The Gateway Pundit’s extreme, er, laxness about the evidence it requires before running with a story is predictably one-sided. Consider their vendetta against Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford.

Shortly after Ford came forward, the Gateway Pundit smeared her in a headline as an “Unhinged Liberal Professor who [sic] Former Students Describe as Dark, Mad, Scary and Troubled.” They later had to retract the “Dark, Mad, Scary and Troubled” portion of the headline, explaining that “an earlier post referenced Ford as an unpopular professor but we have since learned this was a different educator with the same name.” Oops!

The Gateway Pundit then went on to post numerous stories attempting to discredit Ford and her defenders, one of whom they referred to as a “far left nutcase.” While anything goes, it seems, when it comes to their enemies, they’re suddenly extremely skeptical of any and all evidence when it comes to accusations against people they support.

Pretty much the Trump Era in a nutshell.

UPDATE 11/1/18: Burkman and Wohl held their promised press conference today, without their alleged accuser showing up. It did not go well.

Then this happened:

H/T — I learned of The Gateway Pundit’s Satanic accusations from a tweet by The Daily Beast’s Will Sommer, who was also one of the journalists who helped to unravel Wohl’s story.

I’ve done some reading about Wohl and his frankly bizarre career. He started out as a hedge fund manager (kinda sorta) and blew up in less than a year. When you read the prayer, ‘Lord, grant me the confidence of a mediocre white man,’ he’s exactly what you think of.

My favorite bit is that he was being interviewed by NBC. When he denied any connection with Surefire Intelligence (a company that’s existed for less than a month), it was pointed out that calls to SI’s phone number were being forwarded to his mother’s voicemail.

He declined to answer further questions. Thanksgiving is going to be awwwkward.

And meanwhile, Trump is trying to repeal the Fourteenth Amendment by executive fiat; The Big Bang Theory of all things is issuing warnings of incipient fascism; and Ryan Zinke is under investigation for corruption so extreme it may exceed what even a Trumpie can get away with during a Trump administration.

That blue wave can’t come soon enough … and even then, I fear it may be too little, too late.

Did you see the glorious thread by a banker about the time lil Jacob tried to scam his way to a second hedge fund? Just look at this chutzpah:

My little Jacob Wohl story: August 2016, we’re sitting around the trading turrets at my office on a bored to tears slow day. Our receptionist said someone was here for his 2pm appointment. None of us had an appointment on schedule. Who is it? we ask? Some guy named Jacob Wohl 1/
Jacob Wohl, for those out of loop, gained quite a bit of notoriety for becoming the youngest guy to ever get himself barred for life from the financial industry. Now he’s waiting in our lobby to pitch something. We’re a large merchant bank. 2/
Send him in, we said. In walks young Jacob asking to be seeded with $25mm to start a new hedge fund in exchange for an ownership stake in it. Oh, & he needs an office. And a Bloomberg station. And needs to borrow staff until he can hire some guys. And he needs a leased car… 3/
And he needs an answer today. Right now. Because there’s a competing offer from Izzy Englander’s firm Millenium (we know those guys well). We fight the urge to literally start laughing, but do ask him…hey, you the same guy who got banned by regulators? He didn’t even flinch 4/
He went on about that being untrue & handed over a letter he said was from his lawyer who had confirmed he was not barred, had been vindicated but it ‘just wasn’t in the system yet at the SEC, CFTC’…whatever that means. 5/
One of my colleagues politely told Jacob that we don’t usually do seed deals & when we do it’s only after someone works here as a PM for a few years, so no. Take the deal with Izzy, kid. We ended the meeting right there. 6/
The attorney letter was on obviously forged letterhead for Davis Polk (including a wrong address). Less than an hour later we get a call from someone we know at Millenium asking who the hell this kid using our name to get a meeting is. We had a laugh. Hey, the kid tried.

Why can’t he use that undeserved self-confidence for good?

I suspect what they’re going for with this story is something like this:

1. Readers who believe in the supernatural will read it as “dems are involved in eeeevil Satanism”
2. Readers who don’t believe in that stuff will think “LOL look at the dumb lefties with their ridiculous fantasies!”

Walked past a bunch of young white guys in a park today, and saw that they were wearing black hoodies and jeans and skull masks… I thought they were militia goons. Black bloc people don’t look or act like that, and don’t wear fucking skulls… My heart rate went up so fast, I was ready to fight or run so quickly.

And then I remembered what day it was, and why a bunch of white kids would be getting drunk in ghoul costumes after school got out.

I am so damn tired right now.

@WWTH, RE: witch burning
That may very well literally happen in Brazil, now that they have a torture-advocating leader that openly declared his intent to personally violently assault gay men (and thus legalise it), before he was even elected.

And well, if ONE fascist state gets to have witch burning, why can’t the US have it too? (/sarcasm, needless to say)

The only thing they’ve LOST in the social acceptability* to publicly abuse people who they don’t like, but, apparently, that was the only thing that was important to them.

* note, they never lost the ability to do it, just the ability to do it without any pushback at all….

If witchcraft worked, Dump and a good 2/3 of congress would be hopping around the bottom of a well-kept terrarium* somewhere, I guarantee.

Back when I was actively practicing witchcraft (of which Wicca, it must be noted, is only a tiny fraction of the many traditions thereof), I took part in a rite designed to transform then-president George ‘Dubya’ Bush into a frog. It was hoped that this would improve his character considerably, a frog being a big improvement over a war-mongering genocidal puppet politician.

Alas, after the ritual we discerned no outward change in Mr. Bush. However, we joked about it for weeks afterwards and it lifted our spirits immensely in a trying time, and we used that to overcome despair and do actual work, like protests and letter campaigns.

So it’s not that practicing witchcraft has no effect. Just not the obvious one, TV sitcoms notwithstanding.

Speaking of TV sitcoms, has anyone watched the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina? I’m curious about it but haven’t seen it myself.

* This presumes that the Secret Service would still attempt its mandate, because unlike the folks they’re guarding they are decent, honorable persons who believe in their duty to their charges.

Actually, just on the topic of moral panic and bullshit stories, I listened to an absolutely fascinating interview with folklore expert Lynne McNeill on Matt Binder’s DOOMED Podcast about how these stories come about and how they’re transmitted, and how much of it has to do with trust in the person they’re coming from rather than critically thinking about the story itself. Which is something we all do: for the most part, I’ve come to trust stories from the Toronto Star, as an example. But if that unquestioning trust is placed in Sean Hannity… well, that’s how we get Seth Rich conspiracies spread around.

Satanic panic is one such pre-internet urban legend (or contemporary folklore as McNeill calls it). I still giggle at the Surviving Edged Weapons police video and its dramatization of a dagger-wielding Satanist that the poor cops are forced to gun down:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ircYs5M-dqo

I am kinda surprised that even the legendary Stupidest Man On The Internet Jim Hoft is getting in on a moral panic that seemed anachronistic in the 80s when it was in its heyday. I still remember the Cinema Snob highlighting the Halloween propaganda scare films put out by fundamentalist Christians about how Halloween == Pagan == Satan, and it hits on numerous urban legends about child abductions and ritual sacrifice by people obviously lying through their teeth:

“I admit, I always wanted an episode of like 2-4 short episodes where the crew smokes a bunch of cons in rapid succession not worth their time because they were bored on a Friday afternoon waiting for a Mark to do something.”

This reminds me of a chapter of The Long Goodbye where the main plot goes on the backburner for a bit so we can see a more typical week in the life of Philip Marlowe, Private Eye: it’s all stuff like a client who suspects her roommate of stealing from her purse, so she wants Marlowe to call their phone line and throw a scare into her.
“But couldn’t you have anybody do that for you?”
“Yes, but you’re a detective.”

@Katamount:
Fred Clark over at Slacktivist talks about the Satanic Panic fairly often, particularly with regards to the similar Panics still going on, all as part of an ongoing thread of ideas he refers to as the worst LARP ever. (He’s repurposed the X-Files ‘I want to believe’ poster with pizza, among other things.)

His analysis boils down to these folks thinking ‘I need to imagine something even worse than me so I can feel morally superior’. Which is why they so often tend to get upset when you tell them that no, these horrible things aren’t actually happening… they need to believe that everybody not them is utterly depraved so they have someone to look down on, and removal of the horrible things they think other people are doing is thus a personal attack.

His round-up article today links to a post about how a lot of the White Evangelical hatred of Hallowe’en has less to do with Pagan connections (though that’s what they’ll say) and more to do with the fact that All Hallow’s Eve and All Saint’s Day are Catholic.

The article also links to a Wonkette article about Wohl and the whole mess with the attack on Mueller, quoting the part where it points out that the reason the people behind this almost certainly expected these fake allegations to work is that, at some level, they believe that all #MeToo allegations are fakes designed to attract attention and attack powerful men. He compares that against the whole ‘Planned Parenthood sells baby parts’ video, which showed a comparable level of really stupid tradecraft, but which is still believed by its actual target market for similar reasons.

With regards to Candace Owens… so, I see that she has taken ‘Lord, grant me the confidence of a mediocre white man’ and continued to run with it, and still refuses to believe she has ever done anything wrong.

Catalpa – I was going to agree with Ohlmann; on their side, it looks like imprecatory prayer (asking God to smite one’s enemies.) But as I think about it, all those chants could work that way for them, too; a sort of emotional incantation.

Rabid Rabbit – I dabbled in Wicca for a while and according to them, that’s dark magic and expressly forbidden. Most Wiccans won’t even do a spell to help someone without that person’s knowledge and permission.

For a taste 0f the James O’Keefe-level of competence involved in this ratf–king scheme, consider that these bozos were operating from behind the cover of a sham company called “Surefire Intelligence,” the hastily constructed website of which features lots of stock-photo models as supposed employees. And also two-time Academy Award winning actor Christoph Waltz.

Not sure how much crossover there is between evangelical, fundamentalist and Mennonite, but my experience with the last is of a very, very simple and pure brainwashing: demons are real, pagans are honest-to-god demon worshippers and Halloween is a celebration of demons and the devil.

Could be that extremists like the ‘mites have a different way of operating than your everyday christian right-winger, or maybe the people pulling the strings from the top think like how Mr Clark says, or maybe I just became a heretical turncoat the day before I was supposed to get my handy evangelical guidebook.

Jenora Feuer

@Jane Done:
Well, Fred Clark mostly focuses on the white evangelical right-winger, as that’s the sort of person he grew up with. Their stream of thought started out with a lot of Puritanism and general Protestant leanings, added the Southern Baptist attitude of finding biblical reasons to justify slavery and Jim Crow, went through all the various cults and louder groups of the Great Awakening, then got actively suborned for political purposes with Nixon’s Southern Strategy and the appeal to racism. It’s also a pretty hierarchical group, and heavy with grifters, operating largely like a distributed cult.

I’m less familiar with Mennonites, and they certainly have their own internal divisions as well. I suspect there’s some crossover, but not a huge amount. (Heck, there’s some crossover between the modern American Evangelicals and American Conservative Catholics, due to their shared interest in making abortion illegal, something which wasn’t even on the Evangelical radar until after Nixon and the Southern Strategy.)

That said, ‘the reasons the followers believe’, ‘the reasons the leaders believe now’, and ‘the reasons this was originally done’ can all be different. If something was set up because ‘it was too Catholic’ but sold as ‘it was too Pagan’ a century ago, well, all the modern people running things are the ones who learned the ‘public’ reason before, and the original underlying reason may have been lost over the generations.

That’s the sort of thing that led us to Trump in the first place: a couple of generations of grifters getting people wound up with fake stories and promises they never intended to keep because keeping the promise would remove the ability to get the people wound up to vote… and the people at the top are now being replaced with those who grew up on the public stories, never realized it was all supposed to be a scam, and are trying to actually do the things that were promised before.

That’s what they think is happening every time, and what, we’re just that much better at it than them?
