Michael Flynn To Appear At Far-Right Conference With Pizzagaters, Racist YouTube Stars

Source: The Daily Beast

While he awaits sentencing for lying to the FBI, former national security advisor Michael Flynn will take his awards where he can get them—even if that means appearing alongside Pizzagate pushers and racist YouTubers.

Flynn, a former lieutenant general who resigned as Trump’s national security advisor after he was revealed to have lied about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador, could spend up to six months in prison for lying to the FBI. That hasn’t stopped the Gateway Pundit, a far-right, conspiracy-mongering news outlet, from presenting Flynn with a “Award for Service to America” at its upcoming conference this weekend. The conference features Pizzagate conspiracy theorists, an alt-right YouTuber accused of leading a “cult,” and members of far-right European parties.

Flynn is scheduled to appear Friday night, following a series of speeches on why “President Trump Is #Winning.” Flynn, whose contacts with Russian and Turkish officials have brought scrutiny on the Trump administration, is arguably not the best spokesperson for #Winning.

1. Perfect place for him, a loser. Not sure he can hang around w/ these types of persons being ...

that I'm sure some of them are felons more than likely. Being a felon (hasn't been sentenced yet), can't associate w/ other felons I thought.

7. RIGHT??? My only guess is that he flipped as part of his plea, and was given ROR as part of the deal

It will be interesting to know what his sentence will be. 2 weeks like Perpaderpolis who definitely flipped? Or 80 years like Manafart, who didn't (so far...)?

10. I advise editing your post.


In progressive and Democratic groups, "tard" is not really acceptable because it is short for "mental retard" which is a discredited term and is now only used in hateful contexts.

11. Agreed

Calling anyone a 'tard' is shorthand for 'retard' and is not acceptable.
