Kaczynski is here trying to smear Ken Isaacs by association with me, because Isaacs retweeted some things I wrote. Does Kaczynski explain how and why they are false? No, he does not, because he is neither bright enough nor honest enough to do so — Kaczynski’s arrogance far outstrips his intelligence. But he is doing what Leftist “journalists” do so often: simply present fully and demonstrably true statements by me as if they were egregiously false and beyond the pale of acceptable discourse. This tactic is intended to bamboozle and corral the ignorant, so that they fall in line behind the effort to intimidate Trump into axing Isaacs.
This tactic has already worked on Isaacs himself, who issued an apology that couldn’t have been more needless: apologizing for telling the truth is not good form. But when fascists such as Kaczynski are out for blood, it is easy to see why Isaacs would become unnerved and try to appease them.
“Trump pick for UN migration job shared tweets warning of creeping Sharia, pushed fringe view of Islam,” by Andrew Kaczynski, CNN, March 15, 2018:
The Trump administration’s pick to head the United Nations organization that coordinates assistance to migrants worldwide regularly pushed anti-Muslim sentiment, including claims that Muslims were trying to impose Sharia law in the US.
A CNN KFile review has turned up previously unreported tweets that reveal Ken Isaacs has an extensive history of sharing anti-Muslim sentiment. Isaacs pushed a conspiratorial view of Islam and promoted the fringe views from prominent anti-Muslim activists, the review shows….
Asked about the tweets in this story, the State Department sent CNN’s KFile a statement that spokeswoman Heather Nauert gave to the Post in February.
“Mr. Isaacs has apologized for the comments he posted on his private social media account. We believe that was proper for him to do so,” Nauert said last month. “Mr. Isaacs is committed to helping refugees and has a long history of assisting those who are suffering. We believe that if chosen to lead IOM, he would treat people fairly and with the dignity and respect they deserve. I would refer you to Mr. Isaacs for any information on his statements.”
In December, Isaacs retweeted anti-Muslim activist Robert Spencer, who has said that there is no way to “tell peaceful Muslims from Jihadis in any discernible manner.” In the tweet, Spencer defended President Donald Trump’s retweeting of anti-Muslim videos by Britain First, a far-right group that has since been suspended by Twitter for violating their rules.
“Apparently you would prefer we become ‘desensitized’ to jihad mass murder,” Spencer wrote. “‘Islamophobia’ is a smear term designed to intimidate people into fearing to oppose jihad terror.”…
