Kashyap Patel, or Kash, is a major part of the last line of defense protecting the conservative platform. We’re branded conspiracy theorists, dangerous extremists, and even “violent” for simply stating that our elections should be secure or that students shouldn’t be taught to hate their country. Republicans are de-platformed daily for reporting confirmed factual information on current events. Just yesterday, Allie Beth Stuckey was blocked on Twitter for a completely innocuous tweet. Many are fleeing to other forms of social media. But Kash is fighting back.
Kash, a previous second in command to the Secretary of Defense and a 16-year national security professional, has investigated foreign and domestic threats through many administrations including Barack Obama’s. He entered the public eye, however, when Adam Schiff, in Kash’s words, “stabbed me in the face repeatedly.” Schiff leaked Kash’s name and information to the media in an effort to destroy his career when Kash exposed the infamous Steele Dossier and thwarted a left-wing attempt to impeach President Donald Trump.
When I asked him about his investigation into the dossier, he said that he began with this mindset: “If I find out the dossier is true, and there were meetings and collusion, we’re putting that out. I didn’t know Trump, never talked to him, we had no relationship, that’s part of why they hired me.” Despite this, CNN, the New York Times, and Politico painted Kash as a “henchman for Donald Trump.” They even went as far as to push a baseless claim that Kash was leaking information to Ukraine with no evidence. Schiff continued to leak classified information to these key media outlets who lapped it up like dogs. When his family began to suffer, Kash had had enough.
“It got to a point where I said, okay, we’re going on offense.”
Kash is taking the media machine to court to set the record straight. He says that these key outlets have lost their journalistic integrity and all the media monster cares about is their ability to influence politicians on the left. What’s worse is that now “they are the ones defining how the administration defends this country.”
“It’d be nice to restore some integrity in the media but I know that would be asking too much”
“The mission is to help as many people as we can”
After Twitter blocked his posts and refused to shut down an impersonator, who violated their policies and slandered Kash’s name, big tech is now also under the gun. If he wins these cases, that would set a very powerful precedent for free speech. “It will show the world that the mainstream media pushed a fantasy and got caught.”
This is without question one of the most important fights of our time.
