OK, this is blowing my little brown mind. So there’s a guy caught on video by the James O’Keefe undercover videos organizing dirty tricks against the Trump campaign for the Democrats.
According to Politico, get this, that SAME GUY coordinated with Breitbart News, aka TrumpBart News, to pull dirty stunts against… MARCO RUBIO!!!
Aaron Black, an associate with Democracy Partners and a former Occupy Wall Street organizer, worked with the pro-Trump site Breitbart, tipping them off about his stunts, exchanging raw video and coordinating coverage, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.
Black has resurfaced recently as one of the people featured in undercover video from the Project Veritas group. In the video, he claims to work for the DNC. Though he does not appear on their payroll, his bio at Democracy partners credits him with “working closely with the Democratic National Committee” during the 2012 election cycle. Black in the video says he helped organize violent protests in Chicago that led to Trump’s cancellation of a rally there in March.
OK, we got that, we posted that here. Now… get a load of this!!!
According to the source, Black coordinated with Breitbart via email, phone and in person, including when he dressed up as a robot and trolled Marco Rubio’s events. The relationship was described as very friendly. An article subsequently published on Breitbart featured video footage of a physical confrontation between Black and Rubio’s New Hampshire campaign chairman.
“He worked directly with Breitbart’s political team on the ground in the primary states to sabotage Marco Rubio & Ted Cruz, and elect Trump as nominee of [the Republican] party,” the source told POLITICO. “[Black] was coordinating with [Breitbart’s] top staff to rabble rouse against Rubio at rallies.”
As Politico points out, no one is surprised that Breitbart News was biased against Cruz and Rubio in the primaries, that was obvious to anyone with at least half a brain cell still working (so, not Sean Hannity). But no one could prove that they were actively coordinating against the two, all the while slowly evolving to become Trump’s chief propaganda machine.
It’s just one enormous con job on both sides.
