Fascist Duginist liar and paid Russian hack Adam Hunter Taylor


Scottish far-right dickhead and fascist Adam Hunter Taylor (aka Akira)










Scottish Duginist hack Adam Hunter Taylor, one of the persons behind the alias "Akira" and the Duginist fascist site The Fourth Revolutionary War, has offered a rather creative but demonstrably false account of the reasons why Jeffrey St Clair and CounterPunch took down my original Maryamiyyah article in November 2016. In fact a threat of a lawsuit was made to Counterpunch editor Jeffrey St Clair by Maryamiyyah gatekeeper Mark Koslow. To wit,

Dear Counterpunch


But I wish to complain about a false accusation of murder of a guy named Rene Guenon by your magazine allowed in a recent article. It occurred in this article written by a Wahid Azal. Here:


http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/11/02/sufism-in-the-service-of-empire-the-case-of-the-maryamiyyah/

Wahid writes in your magazine that:
“One recent study published in Iran suggests that Guénon’s premature death in Cairo in 1951 may have even been somehow orchestrated by the Maryamiyyah itself, thus making of Guénon’s demise possibly a murder at their hands since, had he lived longer, Guénon’s rivalry with Schuon would have certainly proven deleterious to Schuon and the Maryamiyyah’s long-term political interests”:

I am not a friend of the Schuon cult but I know a lot about the facts in this matter, and Guenon died of the effects of self abuse, due to smoking three packs a day,as well as other physical ailments. Guenon was certifiably paranoid and accused all sorts of people of trying to kill him because it made him sound very important, when he wasn’t.

This false accusation comes Wahid Azal via the self admitted conspiracy theorist in Iran named Abdollah Shahbazi. Shahbazi is a totally untrustworthy source who deliberately tries to magnify conspiracy theories of just this kind. Azal informed me of this article and sent me a lot of nonsense about how great Assad is, among other far right Islamic nonsense. My suggestion would be that you not air this sort of nonsense in a public forum and that you fact check more carefully outrageously false slanders like this before you publish them. The recent example of a journalist for Rolling Stone using false accusation of rape is bad enough. I would hate to see you sued by the Schuon cult, who these people falsely claim committed murder. I suggest you publicly retract the article and distance yourself from the author.

I wish to say clearly that I am not threatening you at all. I have no particular objection to what you do and am usually on the left side of things, politically. I do not care about this article much, other than to think it very badly done. It is an example of very poor journalism. Please get better writers. However, I do know the Schuon cult very well and know they will not hesitate to sue you if they see a way to do it. You should err on the side of caution in this case, and get a better fact checker.
No, this is not a letter you may publish.

Later when directly queried by Eric Draitser, Jeffrey St Clair had this to say to Eric as to the reasons why he took the article down.

Eric,

We’re not in a position to deal w/ a libel suit at the moment and I want our lawyer to go over the piece. The footnote that Wahid provided is to an article in Farsi that none of us can read. The email came from a writer who Wahid had sited as an authority on the Schoun’s activities in Bloomington, which I have a little familiarity w/ having lived there at the time.

This now settles the matter and proves Adam Hunter Taylor and his fellow Duginist trolls, yet again, to be utter liars. 

Later when I confronted Adam Hunter Taylor in private message on Facebook about his nonsense, he blocked me after sending this message, proving Duginists not only to be liars but sicko perverts as well:
