Democratic Underground Hides Occupy Assaults, Smears Brandon Darby

The popular liberal website Democratic Underground had a vicious, factually inaccurate post about Bigs contributor Brandon Darby and our work on the story of assaults at Occupy. I decided to correct these errors and my post was promptly banned by a “jury” at Democratic Underground and hidden from view; another clear example of the constant liberal censorship and how the entire left seems intent on covering up assaults at Occupy.

The original thread started Saturday was entitled Why are FBI agent provocateurs taunting Occupy? was started by a user named FarLeftFist, who wrote:

A little background: Brandon was outed as an FBI agent after posing as an Leftist activist in 2008. He threw a number of people in jail as an agent provocateur and now spends his time working for Andrew Breitbart and still works undercover. He spends his time on Twitter along with Andrew Breitbart taunting Leftists and posting smears ALL DAY LONG. Him and Andy also spend alot of time along with Dana Loesch having twitter-wars with Keith Olbermann and others. I have been involved in these back and forths as a twitter user myself. They get nasty, ugly, and even threatening as Darby and Breitbart unleash their moronic henchmen on anyone they choose

What’s an agent provocateur? Wikipedia defines it as:

… as agent employed by the police or other entity to act undercover to entice or provoke another person to commit an illegal act. More generally, the term may refer to a person or group that seeks to discredit or harm another by provoking them to commit a wrong or rash action.

In no way did Brandon Darby “provoke” anyone at Occupy to commit an illegal act and any implication otherwise is defamation and slander. Furthermore, anyone who knows the facts behind Brandon Darby’s work with the FBI knows that he never provokedanybody to commit an illegal act. By their own sworn admissions in their guilty pleas, the suspects in the RNC Welcoming Committee case state that Brandon did not provoke them and that they acted on their own.

Of course, facts don’t seem to matter to anyone on the Democratic Underground thread. Here’s a sampling of responses:

“alpha male” “macho” punks like this always control the people they are around.

I hope no one takes the bait, I wouldn’t be surprised if he has undercovers with him. People need to spread the word not to engage this fascist.

So, I had a Democratic Underground account I started a couple of years ago but haven’t used. I decided it was time to post. I said:
