When I saw this tweet from the Atlantic:

I was shocked. Not by the fact that neither the Atlantic nor any other liberal publication would ever question abortion based on ending the life of a male, but that they had violated one of the new commandments of the modern left.

The very fact Atlantic has dared to suggest that there is such a thing as “male” and “female” and that such a thing exists in the womb before said child can even be exposed to social construct is a case of liberal heresy.

I await the massive condemnation of the Atlantic by all comers and their boycott by states and celebrities all over.

Break out the stoning scene:

Now you might think that stoning is a tad rough here but as the left has decreed that Monty Python is not comedy but a blueprint for life, I guess we have to do it.

It’s been a rough May for hate crime hoaxsters. Liars have been caught peddling racist incidents that never happened, two of these, not surprisingly, were spread by college students and the third, was fabricated by a man living in a big college town.

America’s grievance industry preferred habit is the college campus.

All of the exposed accusers are black.

University of Iowa student Marcus Owens  said he was brutally beaten outside an off-campus bar and called the “N” word by three white attackers on the evening of April 30. Iowa City police officers investigated Owens’ story and discovered that there were in fact three fights that took place that night–and Owens started all of them.

Sherry Watt, the university’s diversity officer, says Watt deserves “empathy.” If my father was still alive he’d say that Owens deserves a kick in the head, although he clearly got his already.

State University of New York at Albany students Alexis Briggs, Ariel Agudio, and Asha Burwell said they were assaulted by a white mob who screamed racial slurs at them on a public bus in January. But as with the Owens case, it appears that “the attacked” were in fact the the attackers. Earlier this month the trio was hit with a variety of assault charges, two of them, Agudio and Burwell, were expelled from SUNY Albany while Briggs has been suspended for two years.

Security cameras, which helped catch Owens’ lies, were essential in exposing the correct narrative in the Albany case. This story attracted national coverage–even Hillary Clinton weighed in by Tweeting an early version of the violent assault.

While the national media, except for conservative outlets, have paid scant attention to the first two hoaxes, best-selling author and Detroit Free Press columnist Mitch Albom’s Sunday piece offers the story of Jordan Brown, an openly-gay minister of a tiny church in Austin, Texas, who told the media and anyone who would listen that a cake he ordered from a local Whole Foods Market outlet with “Love Wins” written on the frosting had another word added, becoming “Love Wins Fag.”

Ten Commandments

Brown picked the wrong town, the wrong store, and the wrong pastry chef. Austin is the most liberal city in Texas and Austin-based Whole Foods, which prides itself on championing diversity, instantly stood by the baker, an LGBT community member. Brown sued Whole Foods and he referenced his faith repeatedly in his lawsuit, Albom notes. My guess is that “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor,” one of the Ten Commandments, was not mentioned in that suit.

Last week Brown admitted that this hate crime was fabricated.

He lied.

Another May millstone: Earlier this month Milo Yiannopoulos, an openly gay writer for Breitbart, presented a list of over 100 phony hate crimes over the last decade.

Which makes me wonder: While racism and bigotry is still a problem in our society perhaps it’s not a widespread as we are led to believe. But many people, liberal politicians among them, feel compelled to keep picking at this tragic national wound so then can advance the rest of their agenda.

Lying offers rewards. Race-hustler Al Sharpton road the 1980s Tawana Brawley race-based attack hoax into a very successful, albeit shameful, career for himself.

At the times of Israel (via Ed Driscoll at Insty) they are wondering how the media will react to this departure of the official Narrative™ of peaceful persecuted Islam

This is notwithstanding that according to this article by the BBC, Belkhiri said in an interview that she took the photos in order to show “that we can live together, not next to each other but with each other”. Perhaps the caveat of us being able to live together is that this clause is nullified if you happen to be Jewish.

Belkhiri has since gone on a deleting spree and has attempted to get rid of many of her old antisemitic and racist tweets, most of which are now only available on archive, but not before some savvy redditors wised up to what she was doing and captured the messages. In some ways, though, it is too late; the original story, with a compartmentalized narrative of an innocent Muslim woman heroically standing up to ‘hate’ and taking selfies for the cause of peace and love has already spread across the world.

One wonders how eager the HuffPost and Vice will be to make addendums to these articles to the effect of “Oh yeah, but she also hates the Jews — sorry, forgot to write about that one”.

What Tweets is she trying to delete?  stuff like this

Given that Vox and the Huffington post are both online publications whose origins are in the net age you might thing that they would have thought to looking for this, but that’s assumes two things:

That they wanted to find such tweets if they existed

That they disagreed with them

I submit and suggest neither of those things should be assumed of these publications or the left in general these days.

Closing thought:  If I was Donald Trump I’d be ready to throw this story in the face of any media who hits him over screening muslims coming to the US.

Update: The BBC has reported on this:

“This wasn’t a protest at all, this was just to share joy and peace,” Ms Belkhiri told Trending in an email at the time explaining her actions. The 22-year-old added that she wanted “to show that things can be different. And that we can live together, not next to each other but with each other”.
However, since then a series of deeply disturbing anti-Semitic statements made by Ms Belkhiri on social media have come to light.
In one tweet dating from November 2012, she wrote: “Hitler didn’t kill all the Jews, he left some. So we know why he was killing them.”
And in another Facebook post from March 2014, she used an expletive to describe Jews before adding: “I hate them so much.”
After these and other statements emerged, Ms Belkhiri deleted all her social media accounts. As the backlash against Ms Belkhiri grew, a meme appeared showing the now-famous picture of her snapping her selfie but with Jewish concentration camp prisoners and scenes of various terror attacks photoshopped in place of the line of protesters.

Note to Ms. Belkhiri, this isn’t the arab world were one can just state a myth and expect people to believe it to save face.

Update 2: Can I get another “unexpectedly” here?

Ms. Belkhiri’s social media accounts were first subject to mass deletions and now have been deactivated in their entirety.

But screen caps and the internet are forever
