In a bizarre email that went out to his remaining supporter(s), former Congressional candidate and noted anti-Semite Paul Nehlan urged Virginia Senate candidate Corey Stewart to 'disavow' Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro and Daily Wire reporter Kassy Dillon.
Paul Nehlen email: “In an article written for @BenShapiro’s publication, @KassyDillon further ingratiates herself as Ben's philosemetic flying monkey, attacking the GOP frontrunner in Virginia, @CoreyStewartVA, for supporting my run against globalist NeverTrumper @SpeakerRyan.” pic.twitter.com/CCTJLiAFNi— Jerry Dunleavy (@JerryDunleavy) June 7, 2018
The email, sent from Nehlan's candidate account, calls Dillon "Ben's philosemetic flying monkey" for "attacking the GOP front-runner in Virginia, Corey Stewart for supporting my run against globalist NeverTrumper Paul Ryan.”
Indeed, Dillon revealed Monday that Stewart is on record calling Nehlan, who has published lists of Jews in the media (which he calls an "enemies list," and which always includes Shapiro), an inspiration and a "personal hero."
"One of my personal heroes, not from Virginia, but from the great state of Wisconsin, there is Paul Nehlen, who had a lot of courage and took on Speaker Ryan," Stewart says on the tape, posted to his candidate account in 2017 and never removed, even when Nehlan was revealed to be an ardent white supremacist. "I can't tell you how much I was inspired by you."
Since that fateful day, Nehlan has tweeted out photos of anti-Semitic literature, made anti-Semitic threats against Commentary magazine's John Podhortz, has spoken approvingly of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which ended with the death of a counter-protester, and was banned from Twitter for tweeting racist caricatures of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. He's since also been removed from Facebook, and Gab.ai, a Twitter alternative used by members of the so-called "alt-right," for doxing his "enemies."
On Wednesday, CNN revealed that Stewart paid Nehlan a premium for the use of Nehlan's email list.
Stewart responded to the video and report by saying his endorsement happened "before [Nehlan] went nuts and started spewing a bunch of stupid stuff. When he started saying all that crazy stuff, I wanted nothing to do with him after that."
Nehlan was, apparently, unhappy with the distance, and urged, in his email, for Corey Stewart to "take note" of Ben Shapiro's "overt anti-White-ism" (sic), and "his petulant IsraelFirst-ism" (sic). He goes on to quote the New Testament's Book of Romans and the apostle John, in an effort to accuse Ben Shapiro of being among those masterminding the persecution of "Christians in Christian lands" by defending Israel's right to exist.
The letter only gets stranger from there.
Nehlan closes out his letter with the truncated biography of an obviously stable individual, in which he credits himself for single-handedly battling the forces of evil that attack "America's security" and "American's (sic) free speech."
The letter is listed as being "paid for by volunteers of Nehlan."
