And they fired her? After asinine comments like those, I'm surprised they didn't promote her. I haven't seen much integrity from them in the past.....good for them.

McHugh has a message for the people on a similar path, though, one that can be considered regardless of whether you believe she’s actually changed.

 

“People like me should be given a chance to recognize how bad this is and that the alt-right is not a replacement for any kind of liberal democracy whatsoever, any kind of system; they have no chance, and they’re just harmful,” McHugh said. “There is forgiveness, there is redemption. You have to own up to what you did and then forcefully reject this and explain to people and tell your story and say, ‘Get out while you can.’” ●

 

 

This is one reason to resist the Nazis, and to say plainly what they are. They should get negative feedback, the bubble they live in should be burst.

 

That gives people like Mchugh time to see before they become complicit in something like terrorism fueled by white nationalism, or on a larger scale, genocide.

Katie McHugh, alt-right “journalist,” — Get Out While You Still Can.

Message 3 of 3

Fascinating look at alt right, white supremacist Katie McHugh. Her work at the Daily Caller, Breitbart, and dealings with Steve Bannon. A long read, but worth it.

 

 

If you remember Katie McHugh, it’s probably because of the tweets.

A short selection: “British settlers built the USA. ‘Slaves’ built the country much as cows ‘built’ McDonald’s. Amateur…”

“The only way to strike a balance between vigilance, discrimination, (& terror) is to end Muslim immigration.”

"Funny how Europeans assimilated, unlike Third Worlders demanding welfare while raping, killing Americans."

There are many more examples, but this is the big one, the one that ultimately triggered her firing from her job as a writer and editor at Breitbart News in 2017: “There would be no deadly terror attacks in the U.K. if Muslims didn't live there."
