(Jewish Journal via JNS) The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has announced the removal from its conference of a social media “influencer” with a history of anti-Semitic statements.

The announcement followed the unearthing by progressive group Media Matters for America of tweets in which the planned speaker, known as “Young Pharaoh,” asserted that Judaism and Jews had been “made up” for “political gain.”

The online commentator has told followers that “all the censorship & pedophilia on social media is being done by Israeli Jews” and that “all of these big tech [companies], media, & social media platforms are controlled by CCP & Israel through Jewish CEO & corrupt Democrats,” according to Media Matters.

He has also promoted the QAnon and Pizzagate conspiracy theories, and falsely claimed that coronavirus vaccines will “alter your DNA,” the organization said.

CPAC’s tweet stated, “We have just learned that someone we invited to CPAC has expressed reprehensible views that have no home with our conference or our organization. The individual will not be participating at our conference.”
