(INTELLIHUB) — Social media personality and blogger Mike Cernovich announced in a video posted to YouTube on Wednesday that he has now been targeted for “murder and assassination” after the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) listed him as one of the “alt-lite” haters in a piece titled: “From Alt Right to Alt Lite: Naming the Hate.”
The poorly concocted story, with unnamed authors, lumps Cernovich in with a number of other personalities and says that he’s is an “unapologetic misogynist” who promotes conspiracy theories like “#Pizzagate” which “culminated in Edgar Welch firing an AR-15 as he entered D.C.’s Comet Ping Pong pizzeria.”
“The ADL has targeted me and my family for murder and assassination,” the famed blogger said. “There is no reason to add me to a hate watchlist.”
Cernovich was listed just ahead of Milo Yiannopoulos in the “alt-lite” category which the ADL claims “was created by the alt right to differentiate itself from right-wing activists who refused to publicly embrace white supremacist ideology.”
One of the heavy hitters in the ADL’s “alt-right” category was Agustus Invictus who recently gave a speech at the Austin “1776 Freedom March” along with Joe Biggs.
