Donald Trump’s counter-terrorism adviser Sebastian Gorka has been saying all kinds of wacky things lately. When he’s not railing away at Muslims like some kind of yahoo, he’s doing the Trumpian coward’s dance of trying to dodge how much of a raging antisemite he is. Over a month ago, news with images, came out showing Mr. Gorka wearing a medal of the Nazi-collaborating group of cowards known as Vitézi Rend. He was seen wearing it on television during tiny-hands Trump’s inauguration night. From there, the yellow-spined Gorka tried to distance himself from the organization by first ignoring these reports, and then telling the moving story of a son’s dedication to his father’s legacy.
“I have never been a member of the Vitez Rend. I have never taken an oath of loyalty to the Vitez Rend. Since childhood, I have occasionally worn my father’s medal and used the ‘v.’ initial to honor his struggle against totalitarianism.” It’s a perfectly plausible explanation, and you’d have to be of a very specific mindset to still pursue allegations of Nazi affiliation.
As LobeLog reports, this story changed a touch a few days later when Gorka explained that he was a member, but it was a technicality based on his lineage but had never “sworn allegiance formally” to the order. Maybe that’s true but considering that virtually every single thing said by this dumb dumb is a lie, it’s hard not to mention this from the original reporting in The Forward.
“Of course, only after the oath,” György Kerekes, a current member of the Vitézi Rend, told The Forward when asked if anyone may use the initial “v.” without going through the Vitézi Rend’s application process and an elaborate swearing-in ceremony.
Gorka is now saying that this is all left-wing conspiracy stuff and Breitbart is reporting that for him. I’m sure Alex Jones can dig up some proof that shape-shifters are eating dinosaur eggs and forging President Obama’s birth certificate, while giving birth to Hillary Clinton’s demon army.
