As you can see from the screenshot above, Yahoo headlined this story “Bachmann’s accusations lead to threat against Huma Abedin,” thereby giving the impression that some greasy Islamophobe, driven mad by Bachmann’s “hate speech,” had threatened the pure, the innocent, the unjustly accused Abedin. Only when you go to the original story do you find out that it was a Muslim who threatened Abedin. Was he expecting not to get caught, and hoping to give the impression that some counter-jihadist had threatened her, thereby advancing her claim to victim status and discrediting her accusers, as in the cases of so many Muslims who have faked hate crimes against themselves? Or is he an anti-Muslim Brotherhood but nonetheless violent-minded Muslim?
The former possibility is much more likely.
Once again, also, note the double standard when it comes to threats. Muslims like Abedin and Daisy Khan get special police protection when threatened. Threats to counter-jihadists, including the many, many threats I have received from Muslims and their Useful Idiots, get a perfunctory investigation at best, and are largely ignored.
“Weiner wife under guard,” by Larry Celona in the New York Post, July 22:
Police and federal officials have placed security around ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, after a New Jersey man threatened her, law-enforcement sources said.
An individual, described as a Muslim man, made the unspecified threat after Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) last week claimed Abedin’s family had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and asked for a probe to see if she is helping the Islamist organization.
The man was questioned by the NYPD and the State Department and has not been charged, sources said.
