Notorious bigot celebrates after Trump shares her anti-Muslim hate videos

Published

Jayda Fransen‏, a notoriously bigoted anti-Muslim activist in the United Kingdom who last year was convicted of harassing a Muslim woman in front of her four young children, celebrated on Wednesday morning after learning that President Donald Trump had shared her anti-Muslim videos.

“THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, DONALD TRUMP, HAS RETWEETED THREE OF DEPUTY LEADER JAYDA FRANSEN’S TWITTER VIDEOS!” wrote Fransen on her Twitter account. “DONALD TRUMP HIMSELF HAS RETWEETED THESE VIDEOS AND HAS AROUND 44 MILLION FOLLOWERS! GOD BLESS YOU TRUMP! GOD BLESS AMERICA!”

The videos in Jansen’s tweets purportedly show, among other things, Muslims destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary and beating a Dutch boy in crutches.

Jansen is the deputy leader of the far-right Britain First party, which was founded by former members of the British National Party, a neo-fascist party founded in the 1980s.

During her time as an activist, Jansen has become notorious for holding pro-Christian demonstrations outside of mosques in her country. Last year, she was fined roughly £2,000 (USD $2,680) for following a Muslim woman around and yelling at her about Muslim men committing rape in front of the woman’s four children.

Specifically, she told the woman that Muslim women must wear hijab because Muslim men “cannot control their sexual urges,” which is “why they are coming into my country raping women across the continent.”

Youngsters and adults alike chanted slogans and waved placards in demonstrations that started in Asia and the Pacific, spread across Africa, Europe and Latin America, before culminating in the United States where Thunberg rallied.

Published

on

The United States announced Friday that it was sending military reinforcements to the Gulf region following attacks on Saudi oil facilities that it attributes to Iran, just hours after President Donald Trump ordered new sanctions on Tehran.

Trump said the sanctions were the toughest-ever against another country, but indicated he did not plan a military strike, calling restraint a sign of strength.

The Treasury Department renewed action against Iran's central bank after US officials said Tehran carried out weekend attacks on rival Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure, which triggered a spike in global crude prices.
