(Natural News) A reporter for The Daily Beast whose recent article falsely accusing Natural News of being a sham news site and its founder, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, of being a conspiracy theorist has a long history of regularly — and wrongly — portraying conservatives as racists, bigots, and “white supremacists.”
Kelly Weill, whose recent stories for The Daily Beast appear to focus almost exclusively on trashing conservatives and Right-leaning figures, include similar hit pieces on TheBlaze TV’s Steven Crowder, college Republicans, and Paul Golding, “the leader of an extremist British group” she claims “attacks mosques.”
First, the Natural News hit piece. Pay attention to the words she chooses (which her editors obviously have no qualms with):
Facebook on Sunday removed the page for Natural News, a far-right conspiracy outlet that had nearly 3 million followers. The page violated Facebook’s policy against spam, the social media company told The Daily Beast on Monday.
Natural News’ founder Mike Adams wrote on fellow-right wing conspiracy site Infowars that his site was “permanently banned” from posting. He told the Gateway Pundit, another far-right site, that the apparent ban is evidence of a conspiracy against his website.
Now, The Daily Beast likes to fancy itself as an ‘objective’ news source. But ‘objective’ reporters don’t use adjectives like “far-right,” “conspiracy outlet,” and “fellow right-wing.” But Weill does, and does so often.
Beyond that, the reason for the ban, Adams was told by Facebook, was due to an “off-platform” story that turned out to be accurate.
Just days after being banned and deleted by Facebook, Natural News has now learned that Facebook banned Natural News because of an opinion article that Natural News never posted to Facebook. The article in question — “LGBT progressivism horrors” — warned against children being physically and chemically disfigured by parents pushing an LGBT indoctrination agenda onto their own children.
Facebook now says the existence of this article is the reason Natural News was de-platformed from Facebook. This means Facebook is banning channels for “off-platform” content.
What’s more, he noted, Facebook’s actions are a tacit admission by the social media giant that Natural News didn’t do anything wrong and, in fact, “quite the opposite: The Natural News social media team followed a strict procedure of self-censorship all through 2019, meaning no articles about LGBT topics were posted to the Natural News channel on Facebook.”
In the end it didn’t matter: Someone posted the story, Natural News got banned for it, and The Daily Beast gets to claim another ‘right-wing’ scalp.
But wait. The story that started it all turned out to be prophesy. In late May, Adams wrote a column about “LGTB progressivism horrors” in which he predicted that parents steeped in the transgender propaganda would soon begin maiming their own children in order to make them ‘gender neutral’ and, thus, ‘equal.’
No apologies for being wrong, wrong, wrong
Just in time for Pride Month, a pair of lesbians from Brazil celebrated their “true selves” by murdering their nine-year-old son, whom one year prior they tried to make “transgender” by forcibly cutting off the now-deceased boy’s private parts and carving a makeshift vagina in its place.
The horrific event took place less than one month after Natural News editor Mike Adams publicly predicted this new wave of “LGBT progressivism horrors,” precisely describing that “progressive” parents would begin physically maiming their own babies to slice off their gender organs.
According to reports, 27-year-old Rosana da Silva Candido, the boy’s biological mother, and 28-year-old Kacyla Damasceno Pessao, her lesbian partner, stabbed nine-year-old Rhuan Maycon to death on May 31 after a year of evading police and Child Protective Services.
No apologies from The Daily Beast. No reports on this horrific incident from them at all, in fact. And no reinstatement by Facebook. To these Leftist fake media charlatans, it’s as if nothing happened to this young boy.
Moving on from Adams, Weill obviously has a problem with conservative figures, conservative thought, and conservative politics. Enter Steven Crowder.
She begins her hit piece against him with this subhead to her story: “Right-wing performer gay-bashed a Vox reporter for years. They initially declined to do anything, then ‘demonetized’ him, then gave alternating explanations for why.”
“Right-wing performer?” There’s that term again; Weill uses it a lot.
“Gay basher?” Oh, that’s right. If you’re a Left-wing social justice warrior pretending to be a journalist, telling jokes about gays, lesbians, and transgenders is strictly forbidden. Taboo. Not done. Not allowed. Makes you “right wing” and a “basher.”
To The Daily Beast’s credit, the site did take late night ‘comedian’ Stephen Colbert to task for his homophobic Trump-Putin joke — or rather, his latest one — this week.
But in Crowder’s defense, legitimate jokes about a person’s sexuality — or other characteristics — isn’t “bashing,” it’s comedy. And by the way, poking fun at Vox reporter Carlos Maza (who is a far Left journalist, by the way, yet Weill doesn’t describe him that way), was always in response to Maza’s attacks on Crowder, which, again, are just fine with Weill and The Daily Beast.
The harassment started two years ago, when Crowder started making videos rebutting videos from Maza. Crowder, who has nearly 4 million YouTube subscribers, called Maza a “lispy queer,” among other insults, and uses his channel to sell “socialism is for f*gs” t-shirts. Crowder’s campaign routinely led his followers to harass Maza, who went public with his story of harassment this month.
“Harassment?” Is she serious? When did tit-for-tat humor become ‘harassment’ — just because Maza can’t take what Crowder dishes out?
Speaking of harassment, The Daily Beast just doxxed a man who made a parody video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sounding like she had six too many drinks before trying to speak to reporters recently. Doxxing is harassment, and frankly, it ought to be illegal.
Earlier, Weill reported that The Daily Targum, a 150-year-old newspaper funded by Rutgers University, was recently defunded thanks to an effort by a conservative group (the Conservative Union) that used “white supremacist” and “overtly racist” language for a recruitment poster.
The Conservative Union launched a campaign to defund the paper because it had a history of publishing “fake news.” The ‘crime’ the group committed, in Weill’s eyes: A recruitment flyer borrowed some language and designs from one created by American Vanguard, a real white supremacist organization.
Guilt by association, in other words.

Weill believes only ‘some speech’ should be defended?
While there are definitely some similarities in the flyers, there are definite differences in the language (beginning with the opening lines (“Look around, White man” vs. “Hey American!”). And the focus of the Conservative Union’s message — that our country’s culture, traditions, and social mores and norms have been altered dramatically over the past several decades by the Left — cannot be disputed.
But it’s ‘racist’ and ‘white supremacy’ to point that out, even though the Conservative Union’s flyer said nothing about race or ‘white supremacy.’
Other examples of Weill’s obsession with “Right-wing” and “far-right” include:
— A story claiming POTUS Trump spent a recent “morning giving oxygen to far-right extremists” simply because he retweeted posts “far-right extremists” Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars, who was also banned last month from Facebook because he’s a truth bomber and the Left hates hearing the truth about them, their policies, and their extremism.
In fact, the president used the opportunity to defend the manner in which Weill makes a living. “I am continuing to monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms. This is the United States of America—and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH! We are monitoring and watching, closely!!”
Is she saying we shouldn’t have a president who is concerned about the Constitution’s supposed protection of free speech — or that he shouldn’t be defending everyone’s right to speak? Because it sure sounds like the latter.
— She reported that there have been “more than 500 attacks on Muslims in America this year,” but what escapes her, apparently, are the numbers of attacks on Christians and their churches — in the U.S. and around the world (most often by Muslims, who have repeatedly demonstrated their intolerance for ‘infidels’).
Kelly Weill, like most other reporters at The Daily Beast and throughout the establishment media, aren’t ‘journalists.’ They’re political hacks and propagandists for the far-Left Democratic Party. Worse, they’re not even honest enough to admit it.
