It is a story that is rarely discussed but has become a mainstay for “media influencers”, besides hawking worthless products, the quickest way to make a buck is to peddle political propaganda for either the Democrat or Republican party. This morning, the Independent blew the cover off that insider game as they exposed Majid Padellan, known as Brooklyn Dad Defiant on Twitter, for the lawn jockey of neoliberals that he is. This nobody, whose claim to fame is the ability to tweet tirades on demand, garnered nearly 1 million followers by catering to the BlueAnon cult and currying favors with a pro-Biden Political Action Committee called “Really American”.
I want to express shock at this development but I learned a long time ago to suspend disbelief when it comes to the rot that is our government. Both parties find the most creative ways to sheepdog their base while keeping the electorate distracted from economic policies that are bludgeoning them by weaponizing identity politics. In steps Majid to act the part of porter for Democrats as he stepped and fetched on command in order to make a few bucks. This is the world we live in; political operatives hide their profit motives and pretend like they are community organizers trying to affect change. The First Bank President Obama left a blueprint for all two-bit hustlers who aspire to be rich and famous.
Last year, Majid accepted more than $57,000 from Biden’s PAC yet never mentioned this kickback as he took to Twitter on a regular basis to clear the runway for America’s creepy uncle. Majid alternated between being a pit bull as he attacked Bernie Sanders and a lapdog as he humped Biden’s leg, Gotham City has a new super-zero and he is a switch-hitting neo-coon! Scanning his timeline on Twitter is an exercise in self-flagellation; his Tweets read like Tolstoy’s War and Peace in Bizarro World. If you want to know what Sarah Palin would be like if she was a Muslim man with a beard, Majid is your man. You betcha!
In politics, there are grifters and there are useful idiots. In Majid’s case, he occupies both spaces concurrently. As much as I am repulsed by his fraudulence, let me give him credit for being cunning enough to turn his minstrel show into a personal cash cow. He is just following in the footsteps of mainstream media harlots like Don Lemon, Sean Hannity, Rachel Maddow et al who are making fortunes by swallowing their consciences and shamelessly cheerleading for their political patrons. Journalism has devolved from truth-seeking to deception preservation; the yellow journalism of William Randolph Hearst has nothing on the supposed “free-press” of our time.
Now that the American Relief Plan has passed in full, we’ll tell y’all specifically what you’re getting. See ya on #TheReidOut at 7!

Beyond the reprehensible nature of Majid’s duplicity, there is another layer to this story that should really be a red flag to anyone who cares about government overreach and the eventual tyranny that it births. As if we are not already being attacked by political PSYOP campaigns on all fronts, the corporate-government complex are now loosening supposed “regular people” against us. What makes Majid effective is his supposed distance from the establishment; he passes himself off as a struggling father of five, a comic nerd and a Black Lives Matter supporting feminist. There is a reason he does not have a blue checkmark on Twitter; that is part of his shtick to make it seem like he is an “average Joe” when he is really a standard political swindler.
Behind the scenes, this chiseler is raking in thousands of dollars by being a Pied Piper of the Democrats’ base. Born in a city that is proud of proclaiming its realness, Majid is as fake as a Donald Trump’s toupee and Joe Biden’s Botox laden smile combined. Majid is a counterfeit sojourner who is closer to COINTELPRO than he is to Malcolm X. In a country where people can become famous for doing nothing, Majid took that axiom to a new absurd level. His is the audacity of being a dope who is known more for his vacuous rants than he is for saying anything worth giving a rats ass about.
People are finding out that the "Brooklyn Dad" dude on twitter is a paid shill for the Democrats. Twitter is full of paid democrat shills like him

Donald Trump had Diamond and Silk, well Joe Biden has Brooklyn Dad. At least Diamond and Silk did not hide their coonery; Majid on the other hand, tries to come of like he is one of us only to have his cover blown by a spreadsheet of checks he earned for being a token voice for change and a “woke” resistor who could not resist Biden’s temptation any more than Biden can resist a teenager’s lock of hair. In politics, there are zero heroes; we are either being mauled by politicians pretending to be public servants or being hoodwinked by political operatives like @mmpadellan who make money pretending to be one of us. #BrooklynDad Click To Tweet
