Brandon Darby from Breitbart News is a frequent target of left-wingers, who accuse him of being a snitch after bravely foiling a plot by extremist liberals to set off bombs at the 2008 Republican National Convention.

Darby’s latest piece, “FBI Documents Connect Aryan Brotherhood with Mexican Cartels,” focuses on the recent killing of law enforcement in Texas and Colorado:

In fact, ample evidence suggests that the AB does not typically operate under racial motivations, and they have a history of working with the Mexican cartels. On the condition on anonymity, several law enforcement personnel from the FBI and other agencies confirmed with Breitbart News that the Aryan Brotherhood’s criminal activities are seldom driven by race; their focuses are drug and sex trafficking, as well as murder-for-hire.

It would be convenient for the media if the brutality in Texas turns out to be at the hands of a “white supremacist” group acting alone and on racial grounds. What would be less convenient is if a “white supremacist” group turned out to be working in conjunction with Mexican drug cartels in the middle of a politically charged debate on U.S. immigration policy.

The liberal bloggers at Wonkete, of course, mischaracterized Darby’s assertions (under the subheading, “I Hate Internet Nazis”):

From the above Wonkette article, this mind-numbing paragraph:

Hey remember a few days ago when we told you about how the recent murders of state officials in Colorado and Texas might be the work of a vicious gang of crazy-ass Nazis? Well it looks like we might have to issue one of those “correction” things because it turns out that we were being totally unfair to those misunderstood psychopaths when we haphazardly called them “racists.” We regret the error, and accept the blame for not being as smart as Breitbart’s senior “start snitching” correspondent Brandon Darby. That aforementioned reporting genius has produced a piece filled with so much non-sensical dog vomit that Slate editors are beating hapless unpaid interns Malkin-style with copies of it in an effort to restore order to the disingenuous contrarian universe.

Darby, as always, is fighting back on Twitter:

He is receiving support …

… and hate:

But Brandon, you get the last word:


Why exactly does Wonkette object to Darby’s cooperation with the FBI in ’08?

    Everyone should read @brandondarby’s story of his journey from left to right. He has been on both sides and knows a lot as a result.


    We posted on this topic today from a different angle:

    So what are you saying Wonkette? If you support domestic terrorists, the cool kids will like you?

    • Brad Donald

      Well the left hires a former murderess to be professor are Colombia uni.

      I think that speaks for itself.

  • Ntr

    It’s expected for liberals to be idiotically uninformed about this. Everyone with half a brain, meaning anyone other than white PC liberals, know that the Aryan Brotherhood has had ties with La Eme and other Mexican gangs, cartels, going back decades.

    Concerning a different gang though…Early on in the 60s, while still under Albert “Hitler” Hernandez’s control, the Maniac Latin Disciples had somewhat close ties to white supremacist groups over mutual interests or something like that. I think it may be covered in the show called Gangland Gangland S.2 Ep.1 – Maniacal (search for it on youtube). These gangs may even still have loose ties today.

    • vino veritas

      Yeah, yet they arrogantly think they can speak about this subject so openly is exactly right. Most of these douche bag pasty white libs have NEVER even been to the ‘poor’ side of town in whatever democrat run big city hell hole they might live in, much less know anything factual about how street or prison gangs actually exist in real life. Hell, most of them have never even been to jail! Forget a max security prison where prison gang life basically dominates everything! These stupid little deluded clowns wouldn’t be able to hold back from wetting their little lace panties after being forced to deal with reality while stuck in any county jail in any major city throughout this country. They can learn the hard way that the stupid gangster fairy tales they learned from watching rap videos on MTV don’t apply in real life.

  • kim

    yes, let’s not discuss the radical leftist bomb making group. By all means, instead let us rip up the guy who stopped them from blowing people up. So, Wonkette, obviosly a fan of terrorism.

    • ICOYAR

      I never even heard of Wonkette before this came up.

      I think that Wonkette themselves may be operating with domestic terrorists directly.


      After doing some further research, I learned that it was from Gawker media. ALL Gawker sites are notorious for their rampart and extremely biased leftist stances. Figures.

        Wankette shows up every now and then here in the comments. Usually by some troll trying to use the as legitimate proof for some absurd claim. I remember when Crowder got sucker punched at that union rally and that was making the rounds. Some sorry drip of a wank rag linked to a Wonkette article that claimed crowder admitted to pushing people and trying to start fights. They shouldn’t have linked to the video where crowder stated he pushed union thugs…off of tents they were destroying.

          I don’t blame the Union thug, Steven ‘my face your fist’ Crowder has the kind of face only the whole worlds mothers would love to punch.

    So Wonkettes… I guess you are happy that no one snitched out Adam Lanza.


    The sooner the fact that leftism is synonymous with terrorism in the public consciousness, the better.

  • scrubjay

    What does Wonkette mean by “beating hapless unpaid interns Malkin-style”? I blinked and may have missed this one.

  • Richard Jefferies

    Remember how lefties are constantly trumpeting the heroics of Bradley Manning whenever the subject comes up. One person snitch is lefties heroic whistle blower apparently.

  • IceColdTroll

    Jumpin jeebus xmas, who writes this “Wonkette,” 15 year olds?

  • rivers

    The folks at Wonkette are hate peddlers. Nothing new under the sun. Bigots surface in every generation, only the names change.

  • John (it true me am)

    This is something brought up here that I’ve always found interesting. While the Aryan Brotherhood and similar groups are most definitely racist, despite what most peoples impression is, they unlike the true Nazis or radical Islamists often favor seperation over extermination. Of course despite what the liberal whine reaction would be to that comment that isn’t in anyway an attempt to make them out to be “less bad”, but simply something I’ve always found most people are unaware of.

    As the piece talks about they are more than happy to work with other racial organizations, usually on a “you stay over there, we’ll stay over here, we both make money doing such and such illegal activity” basis. You see it a lot with the biker gangs as well(I refuse to call them clubs anymore than I’d call the Crips a youth organization).

    Even many major television shows have actually been pointing this out in some form or another in the past few years. Justified season 1 sort of hinged on it, and there was an episode of the Mentalist I remember where an Aryan Brotherhood type said he outright respected Koreans because of something to the effect of “they are industrious with values and keep to themself” which stuck in my head.

    “Breitbart’s Brandon Darby: Aryan Brotherhood Can’t Be Racist Because They Have Mexican Friends”
    Firstly, nobody except you is saying anything of the sort. The claim was that their motivations for their crimes were usually motivated by money rather than race.
    And Brandon isn’t the one making these claims, he’s reporting what undercover law enforcement officers are saying.
    And the Aryan Brotherhood’s involvement with Hispanic (and Black and Asian) gangs, plus the fact they’re largely profit, rather than ideology, motivated isn’t news, and hasn’t been since at least the 80’s.
    It never ceases to amaze how leftists can fit so much wrongness, intellectual dishonesty and ignorance into a single short sentence.

  • LadyLiberty1885 – A.P. Dillon

    Wonkette is arguably the arsehole of the internet, Gawker is the bowel leading to it.

  • descolada9

    But remember, folks, Will Wheaton thinks that the only crazies out there are at #TCOT (channeling another Twitchy story here). And people still read Wonkette???

  • Richard J Sunkle

    The only color the aryan brotherhood or the cartels care about is money. The aryan brotherhood likely wouldn’t even exist without liberals wanting the prisons desegregated.

  • CO2 Producer

    Shorter Wonkette: The real crime here is RACISM—DUH!

  • vino veritas

    “Snitch”?? LOL.. Oh Good God! Seriously, exactly what kind of drugs are these stupid wonkette clowns spending their days smoking? Are these sorry little hipster boys and girls spending too much time passing around joints while watching rap videos and having delusions about how suddenly ghetto they are?

    Like all internet big mouths they have the freedom to run theirs all they want to about things they obviously know nothing about while making themselves look like completely arrogant idiotic jackasses in the process. The Brand are far from “nazi’s”, unlike other prison gangs who take their charters seriously. The Aryan Circle broke off from them and made their own car in FCI because they were sick of the drug dealing & greedy hypocrisy that the AB started to become solely about. Many prison gangs violate their charters on a regular basis, similarly to the way LCN violates omerta and other OC groups violate their own version of omerta when it suits them to. This is ancient knowledge to anyone who works in the prison system and to crime reporters who also cover prison gangs.

    The fact is all prison gangs and pretty much all street gangs are racist, but you will never hear these partisan self-hating white libs, when bringing up the subject of crime, point that out when identifying any of these criminals. You will never hear them talk about racist non-white criminals because that goes against their ever-present narrative of urban minorities simply trying to make it as victims and slaves to the so-called white power structure. So, of course, white criminals (regardless of their possibly impoverished backgrounds or poor financial situations) must always have their color pointed out first, especially white convicts because they know that white cons are likely to be linked to gangs like the AB while dishonestly ignoring the fact that this is out of necessity and not because of pure choice.

    I would love to see all of these arrogant, dishonest, hypocritical, self-righteous & pasty white libs arrested and thrown into the same criminal justice system they always have the temerity to elucidate on as if from some sort of personal experience. Let’s see how long it takes them to be ‘linked’ with those same ‘crazy white nazi bastards’ they so eagerly try to label as ideologues. That’s, of course, assuming those ‘nazi’s’ would even want them and they haven’t already become doormats or are dead.

    “Brandon Darby from Breitbart News is a frequent target of left-wingers, who accuse him of being a snitch after bravely foiling a plot by extremist liberals to set off bombs at the 2008 Republican National Convention.”

    Eight gasoline-filled bottles, with tampons for fuses, intended to be thrown at police vehicles — the plot planned by a 23-year-old kid—

    Not to downplay the fact that someone might — might — have been hurt by the Molotov cocktails when they hit no more than eight vehicles, but that is a far cry (distant echo) from the blaring headline SET OFF BOMBS AT THE RNC CONVENTION.

    The kids got busted, which is good, but so did a right-wing drama queen who takes his juvenile propaganda too seriously.

    And without knowing who Darby was before now, no comment on the actual, real-life lives of the vilified “left-wingers” (teen goths?) who allegedly accused Darby of being “a snitch.” God only knows, eh?

    the libs can never really face the crime statistics when it comes to non whites.(note Asians are typically model immigrants – massive uni entry – minimum prison population).
