Mike Cernovich noted how various Never Trump news media figures are beneficiaries of state funding from Qatar, in his analysis on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
He further commented on their roles as part of the Islamist state’s broader information campaign — including Al-Jazeera and AJ+ — directed at shaping American public opinion.
“The Brookings Institute and all these Never Trump people are on the Qatari payroll,” said Cernovich. “Al-Jazeera and AJ+ propagandize Americans every day. Most people, when they’re sharing memes from AJ+, don’t realize that that is propaganda, and that it is propaganda from a terrorist nation.”
He added, “Yet these people, they go against Trump, these people are funded by foreign terrorists. How away with it? We explore in the film, they’re all on the take.”
“There are many, many journalists on Qatar’s payroll,” observed Cernovich. “There’s a reason that the narrative shifted Saudi Arabia. The media didn’t care about Saudi Arabia forever, and then suddenly everyone went, ‘Look at how bad Saudi Arabia is.’ Meanwhile, [Mohammad bin Salman], and other people in Saudi Arabia were actually going after terrorist elements within Saudi Arabia, and Qatar didn’t like that.”
He went on, “Now, if you’re the average American citizen — or even someone like me who issues — who’s really the good guy, here? Who’s really the bad guys? Is Saudi Arabia as bad as we might have thought, or are there some reform elements happening in the country? To be honest, I don’t know, because there’s so much foreign propaganda that we’re left wondering.”
