One would think that someone who calls himself a “Research Fellow,” would spend some time doing actual research, at least before he pens an article attacking an accomplished figure (and certainly before he attempts to link that man to “neo-Nazis.”
Of course, we are now living in the “post-fact” era of what passes for journalism (i.e. left-wing propaganda).
Recently, Media Matters published a hit piece written by “Research Fellow,” Timothy Johnson, attacking retired Immigration and Naturalization (INS) agent Michael Cutler, in which he falsely associated Cutler with “white nationalism,” “Holocaust deniers,” and “neo-Nazis.”
Besides the fact that Cutler spent three decades in service to his country as an INS special agent, with much of those latter years devoted to anti-terrorism, he is in fact, Jewish.
Furthermore, as his website states, he has “always been a registered Democrat.”
Now, Johnson’s Media Matters bio states that he focuses “on guns, public safety, and right-wing extremism.”
Well, Cutler did spend his career in “public safety,” undoubtedly carrying “guns” while working to keep foreign terrorists out of this country. However, having personally known this man for several years and watching him testify before Congress on criminal threats facing this country (combined with his Democratic Party affiliation), Cutler is no “right wing” extremist (even by Media Matters’ definition).
Beyond trying to characterize this self-described “proud member of the Jewish faith,” as a “Holocaust denier,” or a “neo-Nazi” is as laughable as it is incompetent.
Johnson also lacks any credibility in that he continuously cites the now-disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as his source for attacking Cutler.
In addition to placing Dr. Ben Carson on their “Extremist Watch List,” only to be forced to retract the ridiculous assertion, the SPLC is the only known non-profit group to have money in offshore accounts (at least $121 million). And while the group boasts assets of more than $500 million, the SPLC spent a mere $61,000 on legal services in 2015, according to their own financial report.
Michael Cutler is considered an expert on immigration fraud and international terrorism, as demonstrated by his expert testimony requested y Conressional committees, s well as his numerous appearances on national radio and television news programs.
Lastly, a little advice to Timothy Johnson: If you are going to persist in calling yourself “a research fellow,” perhaps you should start doing some real research, and stop relying on left-wing political organizations, as well as your own biases, for information.
