CNN—the network that allowed anchor Brooke Baldwin to falsely smear Breitbart News as the “most prominent platform” for the “Nazi salute” and enabled New York Times columnist Charles blow just a few weeks ago to falsely defame Breitbart News as the home of “Neo-Nazism”—reportedly fired outspoken pro-Trump contributor Jeffrey Lord on Thursday for mocking Nazis and fascists with a “Sieg Heil” tweet.

Lord directed his tweet at a Media Matters activist who is trying remove Sean Hannity from the airwaves and has called for Lord’s firing in the past. Lord had just written an article denouncing groups like Media Matters who try to suppress free speech.

“Nazi salutes are indefensible,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement. “Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network.”

Lord told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt the network was “caving to bullies here” and reportedly said his “Sieg Heil” tweet was misunderstood.

An examination of Lord’s Twitter feed (see tweets below) right after he sent his tweet shows that Lord was indeed mocking the “Media Matters Fascists.”

In his American Spectator column that was published hours earlier, Lord denounced the “anti-free speech bigots” at Media Matters.

Audience - Size - Instinct - Opposition - Period

“If there is a conservative with an audience of any size your fascist instinct is not to debate honestly but to simply silence the opposition. Period. Threaten their sponsors and bully,” Lord wrote in his piece directed at Media Matters activist Angelo Carusone.

“This is America, Angelo,” he added. “Not Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany or Communist Russia.”

Lord - Intention - God - Somewhere - Donor

Lord added that he had “no intention of calling for some regulatory God somewhere or some pooh-bah donor to shut you down or defund you.”

“I really do believe in free speech,” he said.
