Andrew Breitbart Introduces New Deceptive Website

Yesterday Andrew Breitbart unveiled his newest site - Big Peace. I thought the name was a bit deceiving, but considering the source, seemed quite appropriate.

Above is the header for the website.  For a site dedicated to peace, there sure are more symbols of war then there are peace.  Just look at the stories that the site featured in its first 24 hours of operation:

Frank Gaffney, a "birther," wrote an article about Shariah law (of course).  Gaffney is a regular in the anti-Islam circuit and has written nonsense for Breitbart's other sites as well, like a piece for Andrew Breitbart's Big Government, claiming that the redesigned logo for the Missile Defense Agency represented  an "official U.S. submission to Islam and the theo-political-legal program the latter’s authorities call Shariah" proving President Obama is a "crypto-Muslim."  It is also interesting that Gaffney writes for a site titled Big Peace despite being the president of a lobbyist group that advocates neoconservative national security positions.

Interestingly enough, according to the Wikipedia page for the Center for Security Policy, Gaffney's lobby also pushes a "Wilsonian" philosophy based on the Fourteen Points of Democratic president Woodrow Wilson - a popular target of Breitbart friend Glenn Beck.

Ned May wrote an article asking "who will protect us from NATO," writing that NATO is threatened by radical Islam.  Are yous tarting to see a trend?

Retired Brigadier General Anthony J. Tata wrote one attacking Ambassador Karl Eikenberry (which is funny because he is doing the same think McChrystal did with Rolling Stone).

Overall, this web page is another propaganda site featuring the same circle of authors found on other right-wing sites.  The name is only there to disguise the intolerance it stands for.


  1. I would not have expected this to be anything else, considering the source.

  2. According to his site, it is a national security site...

    I find the domain a huge misnomer. He is taking fear mongering over 9/11 and Islam to a whole new level...

  3. Typical smear site for a bunch of lemmings. Keep up the good work. I really enjoy this site.

  4. Just found you. Great site. Love the "inside" info.

    Keep on truckin!

  5. Thanks for the compliments. Your site is very good as well. I'm going to be putting it on the blogroll.
