It looks as though the Left and the mainstream media gathered in their hollowed-out volcano over the weekend to cook up another anti-science Narrative to destroy Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper.” The latest lie is that the film is inspiring a surge of death threats against Muslims. A thorough search of the countless stories launched by this well-coordinated Narrative found exactly 3 Twitter examples in a country of nearly 350 million.
One of those threats came from a man who describes himself as “GAY and proud.”
This all goes back to what I wrote last week about the Left’s seething intolerance for anything that steps outside of their poisonous hold on the culture. In order to kill “American Sniper’s” Oscar chances and to intimidate anyone in Hollywood who might be thinking about replicating its success, the Left vilifies and toxifies apostasy. This is just one way the New Hollywood Blacklist works, and it is usually backed by lies like this one about a surge of anti-Muslim threats.
In the same report where the BBC describes the evil barbarians killed in an act of self-defense by Navy SEAL Chris Kyle as “victims,” the BBC appears to take at face value a claim that “American Sniper” is responsible for a “rise in anti-Muslim threats.”
The release of the film American Sniper has led to an increase in threats against Muslims in the US, according to an Arab-American civil rights group. …
The ADC said a “majority of the violent threats we have seen over the past few days are result of how Arab and Muslims are depicted in American Sniper”.
The organisation, which describes itself as the largest Arab civil rights organisation in the US, said it had collected “hundreds of violent messages targeting Arab and Muslim Americans from movie-goers”, mainly from Facebook and Twitter.
The BBC offers no examples of these threats.
The same is true for the wire service AFP and MSN, as well. Both went with an unquestioning headline that reads: “US Muslims threatened after ‘American Sniper.’” Again, there is not a single example of a single threat.
USA Today was at least able to find one tweet.
Written by some lunatic-nobody who had to follow 2876 people to gain 2720 followers.
USA Today published one more example of an anti-Muslim threat inspired by “American Sniper” — this example doesn’t even mention “American Sniper.” It was prompted by someone who identifies himself as “GAY and proud.”
In other words, USA Today has as much proof that “GAY and proud” men are inspiring as many anti-Muslim death threats as “American Sniper.”
Under the headline “Group says ‘American Sniper’ film spurs threats against Muslims,” Reuters published one example where the Tweeter refers to Arabs as “vermin scum.” That’s not a threat. The “threat” referenced in Reuters own headline is nowhere to be found.
RT found two examples, again from nobodies on Twitter — one from the “GAY and proud” guy mentioned above. RT posted 4 examples, but two contain no threats.
The Guardian claims “anti-Muslim threats skyrocket in wake of film’s release,” and then went on to dumb down the word “skyrocket” to mean one tweet from one nobody.
The Independent blared the headline without publishing a single example.
Feel free to look peruse the hundred other headlines this race-hoax generated.
P.S. Sarah Palin gave a speech over the weekend that in 30 minutes generated more non-stop hate than all of the mainstream media could find after “American Sniper’s” 10 days in theaters.
