Roger Stone Selling “Advertising Opportunities” With “President Donald Trump's Confidant”
Blog ››› ››› ERIC HANANOKI
Roger Stone is marketing “opportunities” for advertisers based on his access to President Donald Trump.
Stone has a decades-long relationship with Trump and worked as a paid consultant on his presidential campaign in 2015. He recently said that he still communicates with Trump and sends him memos. Stone is currently a contributor to Alex Jones’ Infowars outlet and posts media commentaries through his Stone Cold Truth radio program and website.
The Florida-based Alliance Strategies Group (ASG) announced in a press release that Stone has retained the firm to “exclusively represent his online presence especially through the StoneColdTruth.com website for digital advertising opportunities.” Those opportunities include "ads on the website, sponsor newsletters, social media posts and send dedicated email messages to his passionate and active freedom-loving audience."
The company’s press release touts Stone’s access to the president to potential advertisers, describing him as “President Donald Trump's confidant and political advisor of over 40 years” and quoting a New York Times piece stating that Stone “won't say how frequently they speak these days.”
Entities sponsoring Roger Stone would be associated with someone who regularly spouts racist rhetoric such as calling opponents "stupid negro," “fat negro,” “mandingo,” and “arrogant know-it-all negro." They would sponsor the work of someone who lobs misogynistic and sexist insults such as “cunt” and has called for the execution or deaths of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Hillary Clinton, and others. And they would be tied to someone who is reportedly under FBI investigation regarding “connections between Trump's campaign and Russian meddling in the 2016 election.”
ASG is led by Republican consultant Bryan G. Rudnick. Rudnick previously directed an anti-gay effort in Massachusetts for the “protection” of marriage. He drafted a 2008 email for Pennsylvania Republicans to “Fellow Jewish Voters” that likened “a vote for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama to events that led up to the Holocaust” (Pennsylvanian Republican Party officials disavowed the email and said they fired Rudnick).
