Cassandra Fairbanks Sues Reporter Who Accused Her Of Flashing A White Supremacist Sign

Pro-Trump journalist Cassandra Fairbanks says she has filed a lawsuit against a New York Times and Fusion reporter who accused her of making a “white power hand gesture” at the White House.

According to a tweet from Fairbanks, the defamation suit stems from a (now-deleted) tweet Emma Roller posted that read “just two people doing a white power hand gesture in the White House.”

Attached to Roller’s tweet was this image, showing Fairbanks and her fellow pro-Trump journalist Mike Cernovich at a White House press briefing.

Fairbanks’ suit (see it in full here) alleges that Roller “defamed another writer, commentator and journalist. Even when others corrected the defamation, Roller refused until the eve of this suit.”



“Roller went further,” it continues, “factually telling the world this ‘white power’ signal had been identified as such by the Anti-Defamation League.”

“What was this ‘white power’ signal? The ‘ok’ hand signal. Within days of this false story by Roller – spread to the world through her Twitter account and then throughout the internet – the ADL itself denounced this claim as a ‘hoax’ noting that the ‘ok’ sign had ‘never’ been a white power signal.”

“Did Roller correct her defamation of Cassandra Fairbanks? No. Instead, on the eve of learning of this lawsuit, Roller deleted the tweet, and tried to destroy the evidence of her saying what she said, and doing what she did.”

Emma Roller has since made her Twitter account private.

She does not appear to have made any statement in light of the lawsuit.

Many supporters of Roller have subsequently taken to Twitter to voice their disdain for Cassandra Fairbanks.

Meanwhile, many supporters of Fairbanks’ are weighing in appropriately.

      The difference is this is going through a court of law. Not being arbitrated though violence on a college campus. I don’t think anyone ever said you can’t sue someone who libeled you. If her case has merit she’ll win, if not she’ll lose. That’s how these things are done in civilised societies when parties can’t agree and the libel undermines a person’s professional credibility.

        But anyone who isn’t useful to a leftist has no rights, didn’t you know? How uppity of Cassandra Fairbanks to just *assume* she has standing to defend her good name and reputation as if she were a member of the left or something.

        “He’s smiling. See, he’s having a good time,” Trump said of a protester who was being escorted out by guards. “Oh, I love the old days, you know? You know what I hate? There’s a guy, totally disruptive, throwing punches, we’re not allowed to punch back anymore. I love the old days, you know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out in a stretcher, folks. Oh, it’s true.”

      They are accusing Conservaties left and right of being Nazis and white supremacists all because they are still angry their Queen lost a fair election.

      You want to talk about embarassments? You liberals making false accusations against our side so you can justify violence.

        I can easily imagine how the scenario went down in the briefing room and it probably looked a lot like a scene from Mean Girls. Roller saw two happy Trump supporters celebrating in the WH Briefing room that should have belonged to her godqueen and she flipped out. She was maximally triggered, and lacking a bike lock, turned to libel.

        Unlike High School and the movies, however, it doesn’t just fade to black after the triggered mean girl has her tantrum.

      I must be totally clueless. What rock have I been living under that “a-okay” is now somehow racist? Seriously? I see trouble on the horizon for a whole bunch of scuba divers…. 100 ft. down is not the ideal place for signal confusion.

      When I first saw this photo days ago I thought they were simply mimicking Trump. He makes that hand signal constantly. I just assumed they were taking a light hearted pic in his honor.

    You know there’s just so much of being called a Nazi, racist, etc. before it gets So tiresome one simply needs to sue that pants off the illiberals hurling these sorts of bombs. Hope you win a Big bundle, Ms Fairbanks.

    • Maddy Perennity

      June 1, 2017 at 8:02 pm

      It really is libelous to seriously accuse someone of something as horrific as being a Nazi. That does real damage to a person’s reputation and livelihood. And the fact that truth is always a defense in libel cases can basically foretell that Roller has no defense.

    This needs to happen more and more.

    The left has been throwing around false accusations of racism, Conservatives being Nazis and white supremacists, and other false claims.

    Every time the left-wing media makes these claims, sue them. It’s past time they start paying for falsely accusing people of being what they’re not just to push a false narrative.

    Welcome to the first day of your sobriety, liberals. Brought to you by those of us who work in that real world every day and actually can find our way around in it quite easily. You are pretty much toast.
