Breitbart: Nazi-Saluting Trump Rallygoer ‘Was Probably A Left-Wing Plant’

Donald TrumpBreitbart editor-at-large John Nolte opined Tuesday that the Trump rally attendee who shouted “Sieg Heil” at a #BlackLiveMatter protester was probably not an actual Donald Trump supporter, but a leftist infiltrator.

In a piece entitled “Sieg Heil’: DC Media and Black Lives Matter Collaborate to Disrupt Trump Events,” Nolte slammed the media’s coverage of the clash between rallygoers and the protesters. In particular, he alleges that there is “direct collaboration between BuzzFeed and the Black Lives Matter protesters currently organizing massive disruptions at Donald Trump’s campaign events.”

The whole thing is “a tad too neat,” he argues (emphasis added):

  1. New York Times compares Trump supporters to Nazis. 2. The very next day a “Trump supporter” (who was probably a left-wing plant) yells “Sieg Heil!” 3. A BuzzFeed reporter looking for all the publicity he can get to sell a book no one will read, just happens to be in the right place at the right time in a huge hotel-casino complex.

Nolte’s hatred for the Buzzfeed reporter in question, McKay Coppins, likely stems from Coppins’ allegation earlier this year that Breitbart is being paid by the Trump campaign to write positive stories, citing only anonymous secondhand sources. Nolte and Trump advisors alike strongly denied those allegations.
