It was exposed today that Steve Bannon and the anti-LGBT hate group the Family Research Council planned to infiltrate Facebook’s hiring process to obtain information on the company, and place extreme right-wing rhetoric and algorithms on the site according to a new report from BuzzFeed.
The idea was hatched by the Family Research Council’s Senior Fellow for Regulatory Affairs Chris Gacek, who wrote in an email to Bannon that Facebook was hiring for a “Public Policy Manager” with the company’s WhatsApp arm.
At the time the email was sent, in August 2016, Bannon was still with Breitbart, but was just about to join the Trump campaign. Gacek wrote that it “seems perfect for Breitbart to flood the zone with candidates of all stripe who will report back to you / Milo [Yiannopoulos] with INTEL about the job application process over at FB.
Bannon forwarded this message to Yiannopoulos, the former Breitbart News Tech Editor Gacek referenced in the email, saying, “Can u get on this”.
Yiannopoulos forwarded Bannon’s request to some researchers, who wrote back that it “Seems difficult to do quietly without them becoming aware of efforts.”
Bannon, Yiannopoulos or the Family Research Council have not responded to multiple requests for comments at this time.
Conservative hero Allen West is in the midst of a brutal recount. His entire career hangs in the balance. The liberals threw everything they had at him in this election and couldn’t defeat him outright. Please help Revive America stand up to defend Colonel Allen West right now! Please make an URGENT contribution of $35, $50, $75, $100, $200 or whatever you can today. And Allen West is getting very little help from the Republican Party. He needs grassroots conservatives to stand up today! Colonel West is a fighter. The liberals hoped he would just give up when his leftist opponent pulled ahead by a small margin. Allen West will not be thrown out of Congress without a fight! He will not be cheated out of his Congressional seat! But he needs ordinary Americans like you to stand with him in this battle. Please make the very most generous contribution you can to help keep Allen West in Congress. And please do it now. I know you’re exhausted and disgusted with politics right now. You probably want to put this entire nightmare election behind you. However, Allen West is still fighting. And I think we should too.

Yesterday after GOP Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) appeared on a talk show to declare that women who are “legitimately raped” do not get pregnant. And therefore abortion should be illegal in all cases.
Almost immediately America’s own Tokyo Rose and Webster University journalism dropout Dana Loesch rushed to Akins defense via Twitter
Loesch recently also chimed in on the recent Family Research Center shooting where a security guard was shot in the arm by an unstable man spinning it with lies and right-wing propaganda and stating “Religion is under attack in the United States, but until now, it wasn’t meant literally”
Akins has since backpeddled furiously and has released a statement saying that “he misspoke” on the issue.
