KASSAM: Why did this VICE News Author Hide Islamist Endorsements While Trying to Satirise Me?

Hussein Kesvani, Twitter

Vice News writer Hussein Kesvani has claimed he “satirised” me. The truth is he used an army of Twitter Islamists and hard-Left trolls to race-bait me. If someone on the right had done this, they’d have been banned by Twitter by now.

Kesvani worked at the overtly Islamist ‘Islam Channel’, so I’m not surprised he’s used to lying to try and make a point. But I am surprised that someone trying so hard to be funny can only appeal to a tiny audience.

Kesvani’s former employer has been repeatedly fined or censured by Ofcom for pumping out Islamist-biased fake news, for condoning marital rape, and for selling Anwar al-Awlaki — the radicaliser-in-chief’s — DVDs.

Since leaving, Kesvani has tried to remodel himself as some kind of “edgy satirist” who seems to tweet at people with larger followings than him, hoping to pick up fans. That’s why he (incorrectly — I’ve always been an open critic of the alt-right — considering myself to be a conservative instead) tried to set me up as some kind of “alt right” fall guy to target, attracting high praise from androgynous leftists and Islamists at the same time for his “funny” claim that the two of us were related.

Sorry to break it to you, Hussein, but I’m taller and better looking than you. There’s no way we’re related. Despite your attempts to lump us both into midget territory in your “article”. You can admit if this is just some complexion jealousy.

Imagine my surprise too, to see no mention of Kesvani’s Islamist fellow travellers in VICE, while he claims to have been targeted with some kind of “alt right” cuck-slaught. (Again, if Kesvani hadn’t already pre-written this story in his head, he would realise how I don’t play with the “cuck” crowd, usually employing the term, like him, as satire).

I even said so back in October:

Kesvani was clearly gutted when I initially played along with his short-lived attempt at humour. He wanted OUTRAGE. I wanted something that was actually funny. And I’m also yet to find evidence of what Kesvani claims: “His shit tweets were favourited by more anonymous Pepe avatars than usual”.

Questions arising from this include: What is a “usual” amount of Pepe avatars? Quis custodiet ipsos “shit tweeters”? And how come he didn’t mention his own “likers” which include BBC employees head-nodding over his “satirical” race-baiting, and people with overtly Islamist leanings, as explained via their bios and Twibbons?

He even got the approval of the disgraced, fake-Islamophobia think tank Tell MAMA, the “Gaza Boat Convoy”, and a number of people who could also qualify as his “cousins” who work for the Mail, the Sun, Buzzfeed, etc.

Even volunteers for the Federation of Student Islamic Societies (FOSIS) — perhaps best known for their repeated hosting of Islamist extremists — joined in!


An endorsement from FOSIS is as good as an endorsement from Awlaki himself

But alas, the worst thing about this whole episode is not Kesvani’s desperate attempts for approval from race-baiters. It is the fact that he thinks I blocked him for his cutting wit. (It’s probably the same cutting wit that doesn’t realise this picture he and his mates keep using of me was satire in and of itself — I was helping a friend promote his libertarian website by ‘looking dorky with a gun’).

Anyway. I’m sorry I didn’t block you because you were “too funny” Hussein. I know that must be heartbreaking.

I blocked you because you over-egged what could otherwise have been a pretty funny exchange. And I have better things to do than swipe away notifications about your mum’s ras malai. Like write 600 words about exchanges about your mum’s ras malai.
