Chris McDonald: I'm 'Accusing Adam Schiff of Being a Pedophile Because I Don't Like Him'

By Kyle Mantyla | March 7, 2019 10:47 am

Yesterday on his “The MC Files” program, right-wing commentator Chris McDonald alleged that Rep. Adam Schiff “is a pedophile”—while openly admitting that he doesn’t have any evidence to support that allegation and is making it primarily because he dislikes Schiff.

“This is the most dirtiest congressman in freaking Congress, short of Nancy Pelosi,” McDonald said. “This is a crooked SOB. and when he talks, I swear, I just want to vomit.”

“He’s dirty,” McDonald continued. “I’ve heard rumors that he’s not only dirty, but he’s a pedophile. But he’s not only a pedophile, I’ve heard that he settled a case with a minor, or somebody—a sexual abuse thing—many years back and that’s been sort of shoved under the rug.”

“I’m not trying to impugn character, I’m not accusing him of anything, but it wouldn’t surprise me if that’s true because he’s creepy as hell and I don’t like him,” McDonald added. “I’m just being very honest. So Right Wing Watch, write that up, that Chris McDonald is accusing Adam Schiff of being a pedophile because I don’t like him. I can see the headline right now.”

1. This sounds like actual malice to me. Someone deliberately defaming out of hate. n/t

17. This is actual malice, but not for the reason you think.

the legal definition is making a statement about another "with knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not." New York Times v. Sullivan

18. That was what I was saying. It was actual malice, as defined legally. He knew it was false

and spread it deliberately.

That's hard to prove in many cases, but shouldn't be in his.

23. Since this thread isn't going away: this is a garbage accusation of a great man with no truth to it

At all.

It is a disgusting lie about someone courageous and smart as hell who believes in what this country stands for and who is working his heart out to do the right thing every day.

This is an attempt to discredit a good man for doing his job. Anyone reading the OP, here are some clues that indicate a statement like this is a lie. It’s a rumor. He’s just saying he heard this, without identifying a source.

We’re being divided intentionally and cynically. Don’t be a part of it.

Pwnmom, I agree with your post. I’m putting this comment here for the readers who will be googling the two terms that have nothing to do with each other.

Admitting that you're doing it for no reason isn't very bright.

8. It's the neutron bomb of character assassination

What pisses me off is that now that the spurious allegation is "out there," so-called responsible media outlets will pick it up because of lingering questions and clouds hanging over the congressman's reputation.

10. Slander and deframation of character, as well as making false accusations against a ...

Senator like this, while admitting that he has no evidence to support his accusation. If I were the senator or one of his staff, or Congress security, perhaps this guy warrants a closer look?

This kind of free speech / in reality 'hate speech' nonsense is ridiculous, and could actually hurt people. Paypal needs to be alerted that this is occurring and suspend this guy's paypal account www.paypal.me/themcfiles.

21. No one is spreading it.

We are discussing something that was put out by a right winger with a platform. I don't see anyone on the forum just putting the information out there without any context. No one is promoting it saying, "You have to check this out."

12. "I'm not accusing him of anything."

Right after accusing him.

Is this some kind of lawsuit dodge?

If he gets hauled into civil court, can he fall back on: "But I said I wasn't accusing him of anything!"

14. Old tactic

There is a story in politics, commonly attributed to Lyndon B. Johnson, about how LBJ wanted to circulate a rumor attacking his opponent in a Texas election. Johnson, it's said, wanted to spread the story that his opponent liked to have sex with barnyard animals. One of LBJ's aides said, "We can't prove he's a pig f----r."

"I know that," replied Johnson. "I just want to hear him deny it."

The butthurt and bitterness will likely approach ridiculous levels.

If you think you're going to raise your profile by getting Schiff to pay attention to a nobody like you, think again.
