Girl, this Article on Yashar Ali is Fabulous

The very secretive Ali is going to be so pissed off by this.

He has a history of using rich ladies and leaving them not liking him. Including Kathy Griffin, who had to kick him out of her house after he squatted there for 9 months.

He borrowed almost $200,000 from an heiress was squatting with. And she had to sue him. He promised to pay it back in monthly installments but defaulted after only two payments.

He comes across as a Talented Mr. Ripley level grifter.

I love the fact that the author wonders if Yashar's "youthful" Twitter pic was from the 40-year-old's high school yearbook.

Yashar swears it was taken just before the pandemic. Sure, Jan.

And Yashar refuses to have a photoshoot. And wants to be interviewed in "darkened silhouette." He claims this is to protect his family and so Scientologists don't know what you look like. Sounds very shady.

People on Twitter are laughing about him being called out for catfishing.

They are also wondering if all the talk about suicide was just theater because he knew the article was coming.

The Capote comparison is apt. Kathy was trying to rebuild her career after the Trump photo disaster, and she was worried if she threw him out he’d destroy her on Twitter. What a POS. And the context that’s added here about his relationship with the Garcetti aide-sorry, his abuser or rapist or whatever he wants to call him-is telling.

Have you seen what he really looks like r27? Do a quick google image search before you eat anything.

So all of that money he was giving away during the pandemic wasn't his to give? Or maybe he didn't even give out very much if any.

This is some good dirt. Thanks OP! Over at his "suicide" thread we had a hard time with his explanation that his fake spiral was brought on by the death of his favorite elephant and the approaching anniversary of Anthony Bourdain's suicide. Double fuck that cunt for using Anthony as a prop.

A couple of years ago I checked his Twitter regularly for a few months. Soon realized there was something off about him and the only tweets I liked were the elephant ones. He tried to come across as deeply connected with some serious cred. But I felt he was a celebrity suckup and his tweets largely depended on whoever he was sucking up to. Also had misgivings about Rick Wilson and the Lincoln Project and it turns out they were a donation grifting machine.

Their fanbase is not the power elites. The only people who really get cancelled, have some kind of sex. That does not apply to Yashar. Or Chrissy.

And some time afterward, the woman in question did an interview with a local media outlet, said the experience was horrible, scary, etc. And this was recently enough that he knew what would happen after he trashed this woman.

The LA Mag article does a great job of framing Yashar’s success as a symptom of a diseased, revenue-started media industry.

Amy Siskind's tweet. Yashar Ali is a vile snake. I hope an elephant stomps on him someday. That would be sweet poetic justice:

I too have a story to share about Yashar Ali. I met him at the same 2008 event for prominent Hillary supporters as Susie Tompkins Buell. Shortly after, Susie formed WomenCount with West Coast supporters. 30 East Coast supporters formed The New Agenda.

The New Agenda's role was to speak out against sexism. And to promote women into leadership in both parties and in all spheres. We were among the first to speak out against sexism against women of both parties.I wrote back then for Daily Beast and HuffPost as head of the org.

I had met Yashar. We kept in touch and he knew about my orgs work. Our paths crossed more closely when Hillary ran again in 2016. We actually were pretty close. I am gay, and I was one of the first people he came out to. I have an inbox full of gushing messages on FB.

Then we had a falling out. Ironically over the woman who accused Trump in 2016 of sexually assaulting her when she was 13. Yashar kept disparaging her on my page. I asked him to stop - once, twice, three times, then finally blocked him.

Months later, old tweets of mine and old DB stories were cut and pasted together by Yashar to create a false story about me and my org. Although he knew full well who we were and what we did. He took writings I did as president of the org to mischaracterize me and my work.

When I was selected for the POLITICO 50 in 2017 for my work with The Weekly List, he tweeted how I didn't deserve it and recirculated this old tweets and stories - again knowingly out of context. My org wanted more women to run in both parties. That and defend against sexism.

Eventually people called him out on this. If you read the articles I wrote as leader of the org, they are on women's rights and representation - which party is doing more (14 years ago the GOP tried). It was separate as well from my personal viewpoints.

It's almost impossible to fight false narratives which are cleverly crafted in 280 characters or less. So I just moved on. But I understand why people are fearful of his wrath - he knows how to manipulate - and didn't want to go on record.

P.S.: I also remember Kathy Griffin really viciously attacking me here - which I never understood at the time, because I had always defended her when she came under attack for her tweet. Now it makes sense: Yashar was living in her house at the time 🤦🏾‍♀️

Then we had a falling out. Ironically over the woman who accused Trump in 2016 of sexually assaulting her when she was 13. Yashar kept disparaging her on my page. I asked him to stop - once, twice, three times, then finally blocked him.

Months later, old tweets of mine and old DB stories were cut and pasted together by Yashar to create a false story about me and my org. Although he knew full well who we were and what we did. He took writings I did as president of the org to mischaracterize me and my work.

When I was selected for the POLITICO 50 in 2017 for my work with The Weekly List, he tweeted how I didn't deserve it and recirculated this old tweets and stories - again knowingly out of context. My org wanted more women to run in both parties. That and defend against sexism.

Eventually people called him out on this. If you read the articles I wrote as leader of the org, they are on women's rights and representation - which party is doing more (14 years ago the GOP tried). It was separate as well from my personal viewpoints.

It's almost impossible to fight false narratives which are cleverly crafted in 280 characters or less. So I just moved on. But I understand why people are fearful of his wrath - he knows how to manipulate - and didn't want to go on record.

P.S.: I also remember Kathy Griffin really viciously attacking me here - which I never understood at the time, because I had always defended her when she came under attack for her tweet. Now it makes sense: Yashar was living in her house at the time 🤦🏾‍♀️

Amy Siskind's tweet:

I too have a story to share about Yashar Ali. I met him at the same 2008 event for prominent Hillary supporters as Susie Tompkins Buell. Shortly after, Susie formed WomenCount with West Coast supporters. 30 East Coast supporters formed The New Agenda.

[quote]One evening in the fall of 2018, Griffin invited journalist Joan Walsh, the national affairs correspondent for The Nation and a former political analyst for CNN and MSNBC, to join her for dinner. After Ali made an appearance, Walsh began probing Griffin about the nature of her relationship with him. Walsh says she got the sense that Griffin wanted Ali to leave but was too intimidated to force the issue. “I completely believed that she was uncomfortable and maybe even afraid, and I sympathized with her,” says Walsh. After listening to Griffin’s story and seeing her evident anxiety, Walsh told her host, “Kathy, you got yourself a grifter. You have to get him out of here.”

It would take several more months, but Griffin finally asked Ali to leave in early 2019, enlisting two part-time male assistants to help oversee the packing of his belongings. Then they ordered him an Uber and sent him on his way.

Because who doesn't have spreadsheets of their friends and their contact info?

[quote]“I don’t remember how we became friends,” says New York Times Washington correspondent Maggie Haberman. Zucker has a hard time recalling, too. “That’s a really good question. How do I know Yashar?” So does CNN anchor Jake Tapper. “I couldn’t tell you how me met, but suddenly he was a presence in my life—a wonderful one,” he says. “It just feels like he’s always been in my life. But I don’t know that I’ve ever met him in person.”

This is just bizarre. Tapper has never met him and yet describes his a wonderful presence in his life? Are these people that easily taken in by social media flattery, or is he blackmailing them?

[quote]That coup led to his appointment in 2009 as Newsom’s deputy chief of staff. Within Newsom’s inner circle, Ali’s scant political experience raised questions. “Yashar didn’t even have a goddamn resumé,” says one former aide, who recalled the team struggling to create a press bio for the new hire due to his conspicuous lack of experience.

Again, how? You can't even say he slept his way anywhere, because even in that pic of him with Newsom in 2009 he's an unattractive fatty.

“ Which is not to say that Ali turns on all his friends. Sometimes he can be ferociously loyal. Take, for example, Leah Remini (No. 5 on Ali’s list). Ali and the King of Queens-actress-turned-activist have been close for years—she’s the one who inspired his anti-Scientology crusade. When she was fired from her yearlong stint at The Talk in 2011, Remini publicly blamed cohost Sharon Osbourne of orchestrating her departure. She’d later retract the accusation (telling Howard Stern the reason she got fired was that “I am not good at interviewing celebrities”) but then retracted her retraction last April, when Osbourne found herself in hot water for defending controversial comments by Piers Morgan (No. 43 on Ali’s list). The outlet where Remini resurfaced her allegation? Ali’s Substack, where she was the only on-the-record source in a brutal post—citing 11 other anonymous sources—accusing Osbourne of a long list of offenses, including bullying and using racist language. Days later, Osbourne was fired after more than a decade on the show”

Save it, R206. Andy Ngo fakes things to make it look like he's been attacked with "concrete milkshakes" and such when there's no proof, and often there's other video taken at the same time his video was which shows a completely different story. More than once last summer he would show a video of someone being "victimized by Antifa" where another video showing the whole encounter would reveal that it was actually a Proud Boy or alt-right guy starting something, which Andy had edited out.

This was all proven in 2019 and just keeps getting proven again and again, every time he tries a new stunt. I don't know why the trolls have been using the "I don't have to agree with someone to respect them" bit the last few days but you've all said it so many times on Datalounge alone that no one is really even listening to you anymore.

People seem to forget that even before Trump, implied violence against a President was taboo. If a comedian had done that with the head of any other president it would have been just as shocking and would have had the same grave consequences for the "artist." Just because Trump is odious doesn't mean that taboo should have been relaxed. I found it surprising that people acted as if she was unfairly treated in the aftermath of doing that.

R348 Sharon Osbourne is not some innocent helpless victim and never has been. Sharon Osbourne has been a problematic individual in the entertainment industry for decades. Don't think she doesn't have enemies in LA, she does which is why the shit hit the fucking fan for her.

There's absolutely nothing innocent about sharon Osbourne, so you can stop with the " justice for sharon" bullshit! Sharon is not a fuckin victim.

Sheryl Underwood did nothing wrong. She asked sharon a question and sharon lost her shit and acted a damn fool on live network television dropping F bombs left and right. If you react that way on daytime television on a show where you're job is discussing cultural issues among many other things, and you respond by having a fool on meltdown? Then you are clearly guilty of something.

Not only that, but CBS really had no other choice but to let sharon go. Her behavior towards her black co-worker on live broadcast television on a major network in 2021 is not something that could just be overlooked. Especially with people pointing out if that had been a black person acting that way in a professional work environment, which is what she was in. Than they would've been fired immediately. Black people are not given the same grace to act a fool in the work environment and still get to keep their job. And " The View" is a different story, that show has been dysfunctional from day one, it's apart of that shows charm and brand. But " The Talk" can't say the same.

Sharon should have known better, she should've handled herself better, but she didn't and thus had to be let go for her outburst as well as past ill behavior etc. Sheryl did nothing wrong, she asked a question and sharon flew off the damn handles. She's out of a job because of her own behavior and because she thought whiteness would protect her.

Not anymore, that type of behavior is not acceptable any longer. Especially not in 2021 and moving forward. This country is becoming increasingly more diverse and as it does, less people will have an appetite to stomach that type of bullshit from an English white woman like sharon or any white person for that matter.

Behave in the work place or end up without a J.O.B.

I agree. People act like EVERYONE IN THE WORLD must use social media in the exact same way they do. The majority of followers of any given account are probably not that tuned into Twitter. People set these things up and then forget about them. Yashar is smart to ignore the story. He's too marginal a figure for the takedown to spread far and wide. Too many big name journalists have been duped by him, so it's in the best interest of the media to ignore this story as much as possible.

by Anonymousreply 40406/11/2021

[quote]how does he make money?

I just listened to a podcast with the author of the article.

What I thought was most interesting is that Yashar was refusing to cooperate. Then, the author contacted someone who had given Yashar a lot of money last summer. Yashar had asked people to send him money and he would "distribute" it to people in need. Because of Yashar's history of misappropriation and shakedowns, the author wanted to investigate that since there was no accountability.

Within minutes of the author contacting this person, Yashar was on the phone to the editor of the magazine wanting to know the focus of the story.

Someone was afraid of getting busted for scamming his followers on Twitter.

Other interesting tidbits:

Yashar pleaded with them to delay the piece and when they said they couldn't any longer (because the print issue was coming out) he started his "I'm going to kill myself!" tweeting, which put them in an untenable position. But they decided to call his bluff.

The author says there is A LOT more to this story but someone else is going to have to do it because he was exhausted by having to deal with Yashar.

He said all the people he called were glad he was doing the story as they thought Yashar is the biggest bully ever, but were scared to be listed as sources. This included very famous journalists.

There are different kinds of suspensions on Twitter, I've never had an official one but I have occasionally gotten locked out of my account for a few hours, and I always come back with the "offending" tweet having disappeared. My account apparently looks completely normal during that time.

Anyway, side note, Twitter really doesn't like it when you tell Trump or his pals that they suck.

by Anonymousreply 49406/11/2021

All roads lead to Mar-a-Lago. Everyone wins -- he can do odd jobs around the property with Sam Nunberg and they can share a tiny room with a bunk bed. Then Trump can put Yashar on display at rallies to prove that, in the end, no one can resist the power of MAGA. But there'll probably be a bout with mental exhaustion first.

Yashar also has an active Instagram account @yasharali - you know he never tears those fat fingers away from social media. It's interesting to check out his old saved Instagram stories. He rants about Carole Baskin and says he wants to demand a "citizen's audit" to see where her money is going. Would he agree to the same? 😂 There's also a section for "Confessions" sent to him by his followers, and "Towelgate"...🙄

If your account is suspended, no one is able to respond to your Tweets. Ali's Tweets are still able to be retweeted and responded to.

A shadow ban means Twitter has stopped allowing posters to respond to you for a specific time period. Ali's Tweets can be responded to, so he is not shadow banned.

Temporary suspensions show up immediately when you look up someone's account. Ali is not temporarily suspended.

Twitter has taken no action against him.

by Anonymousreply 51006/12/2021

The reason it was brought up if he had been suspended R510 is because he has not tweeted since the story broke. Since he has not tweeted and is not suspended it makes his past 7 days behavior suspicious.

by Anonymousreply 51106/12/2021

Shadowbanning on Twitter means you can't find the account on searches more than anything else. There is a rumored "reply deboosting" that happens when you get shadowbanned but no one is sure if that really happens or not.

There's a website that does shadowban tests and @yashar doesn't appear to have been shadowbanned.

Twitter hasn't done anything to him, I am logged in and can still reply if I wanted to (I don't). I don't think twitter has any reason to ban him anyway, the article did not have any reason for them to and they did not ban him while he was posting his passive suicidal stuff.

I am wondering if he wants to try to stop further investigation now, if it's warranted. He already has a private detective out on him. I wonder who from.

No. He's being canceled because he tries to portray himself as some purveyor of morality and altruism while bullying and sicking his "fans" on anyone who crosses him, often ruining their lives. He has demonstrated a pattern of manipulating and using people and then turning on them in harmful ways for his own personal gain or simply for his own enjoyment. He's an evil bastard.

Also, he's a great big fatty using a doctored profile photo. If he were hot (or even if he actually looked like his profile photo with a decent body), all would be forgiven immediately.
