WATCH: Sebastian Gorka Shoves Reporter At Conservative Convention

Sebastian Gorka, the former White House counterterrorism advisor whose ties to a Nazi-linked group the Forward exposed last year, pushed a reporter and allegedly told him to “f—- off” during an altercation at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday.

In an exchange captured on video, Gorka shook hands with Mediaite reporter Caleb Ecarma — who once challenged him to a pistol duel after Gorka grew furious over Ecarma’s reporting of Gorka’s illegally parked car. But after Ecarma introduced himself, Gorka grew angry, appeared to do a karate chop deke, pushed Ecarma, and called him “irrelevant.”

Gorka later responded on Twitter by criticizing Ecarma as “a ‘journalist’ who illegally surreptitiously records conversations in MD without 2-Party Consent.”

The Forward reported last year that Gorka was a member of the Vitezi Rend, a group founded by the Hungarian allies of the Nazi regime, and that he had expressed support for a violent anti-Semitic Hungarian militia.

After leaving the White House under mysterious circumstances, Gorka resumed his role as a Fox News contributor. He also signed on as a contributor to the far-right Canadian website The Rebel, an organization commonly referred to as “Breitbart North” that once published a video titled titled “Ten Things I Hate About Jews.”
