Holt joined the GOP-Senator funded ISD as a Senior Research Manager on “hate and extremism” in July of this year.

Six high profile Republican senators including Tom Cotton, Lindsey Graham, and Marco Rubio sit on the board of a foreign policy nonprofit that funds the work of left wing media reporter and hate expert Jared Holt.

Holt, a former reporter for Media Matters for America and Right Wing Watch, and former resident fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, has now taken a position with the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, an international anti-extremism and disinformation non-profit.

Sharing the news of his new job in July on Twitter, Holt declared he was “pumped” to get building a “mean research unit” into “hate and extremism” with the ISD.

The ISD, founded in 2006, is a London-based group with teams in Washington DC, Berlin, Paris, and other areas across the globe, functioning as an arm for the globalist regime to remove any information they deem “extreme” or “misinformation,” boasting of the removal of thousands of allegedly “white supremacist” or “covert disinformation” social media accounts.

The group also trains activists and social influencers, and works with local and national governments to also stop alleged “extremism” or “hate,” targeting millions of people worldwide, with policy influence at the highest levels, including the United Nations.

Holt, who spent much of his career reporting on those on the American right, and encouraging companies to deplatform those who he and his colleagues deem unacceptable for society, such as Infowars and Alex Jones.

As Valiant News reported, Holt was also involved in downplaying violence from far left abortion protesters and Black Lives Matter rioters, arguing that conservatives were fear-mongering despite a multitude of evidence to the contrary.

On their website, a number of organizations are listed as funding the ISD, including George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Despite the globally minded nature of Holt and his new employers, the ISD also includes the International Republican Institute among its funders. The IRI is best described as a neoconservative non-profit that draws most of its board members from the Republican Party.

Current sitting Senators on the board that fund’s Holt activities include Dan Sullivan of Alaska, who is also the chairman of the board; Tom Cotton of Arkansas; Joni Ernst of Iowa; Lindsey Graham of South Carolina; Mitt Romney of Utah, and Marco Rubio of Florida.

The late John McCain, a war hawk and critic of 45th President Donald Trump, was the nonprofit’s chairman for 25 years prior to his death. McCain apparently recommended Sullivan as his successor.

It is unknown whether those congressmen who present themselves as Trump-aligned, including Rubio, Graham, and Cotton, understand their nonprofit is responsible for helping to fund ISD and therefore Holt.

But the ISD’s activities, funded by IRI, are not limited to employing left wing tattle tales.

On their official Twitter account, the ISD has accused Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene – those senators’ fellow Republican congressman – of spreading Russian propaganda by highlighting the Ukrainian-controlled Azov Battalion’s ties to the Nazi ideology.

Other board members of the IRI include Rep. Kay Granger of Texas’s 12th District; former Trump National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster; Kristen Silverberg, ambassador to the EU under George Bush Jr; Frances Townsend, former Homeland Security Advisor to Bush Jr, and the current Vice President of corporate affairs at video game company Activision Blizzard.

The IRI itself was accused of being involved in a coup in Haiti, and training “activists” during the 2011 Arab Spring, among other shrouded activities.

Funding of Holt and the ISD is not just limited to the GOP Senators and ex-advisors, but also various national governments, including various government entities in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, along with the European Union and the Council of Europe.

Big Tech companies Audible, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Spotify and YouTube also pump money into funding the “anti-extremism” group.

Holt’s activities have turned him into a subject of animosity and interest to conservatives.

The “Barely Informed with Elad” podcast questioned Holt over Big Tech censorship while Holt attended CPAC as a member of the media in 2020, and Holt denied that there was any “ideological basis” for political censorship. He also claimed to have seen extremists at the mainstream conservative event.

At the same event, former Fox News pundit and Censored.TV founder Gavin McInnes attempted to interview Holt and Will Sommer, and described them as tattle tales and losers.

McInnes was ejected from the conservative event shortly after he attempted to interview Holt and Sommer, who both continued to attend CPAC.

    Though this is disturbing info, I am also aware that Congressional democrats are trembling in their shoes as the midterms approach and can be counted on to employ a wide variety of nefarious tricks common to the lying, corrupt, narcissists that they are. Therefore, I will triple and quadruple check all propaganda I see floating around MNM and MSM. As for this article, I placing it into file 13.

    5 seconds into the McInnes “interview” makes it clear why he was ejected. What a foul moron. I don’t want people like him being a face of conservative/right/maga ever.

    These six RINO senators not only betrayed Trump, they betrayed the 80 million Republicans who voted for them. SHAME on the traitors of RINO, they will face the fate of Liz Cheney.

    I’ve spent hundreds of hours studying not-for-profits. My conclusion?

    Take away their special status, all of them. From the PGA and NBA to the local NRA and church. As a group, they are (mostly unregulated) tax dodges laundering money for rich people, corporations and the government to do what these groups can’t do on their own. At the least, the status gives the government power over the honorable groups…power the Govt can easily abuse.

    They provide cover for every bad act and idea manageable.

    I know this sounds extreme, but think about it for a week, the idea will grow on you.
