Huffington Post Hires Mehdi Hasan

By: Mike Fossum - May 23, 2012

British journalist Mehdi Hasan, who once referred to all non-Muslims as being “animals,” has been appointed as the Huffington Post’s political director in the U.K. Hasan has parted ways with British left-wing political magazine the New Statesman, though will continue to contribue a weekly column.

Below is a clip of Hasan speaking of the Islamic moral high ground, and how the rest of humanity lives as animals:

It’s evident that the Huffington Post made quite a sensational choice in Hasan, and Raheem Kassam, executive editor of conservative online journal The Commentator, suggests, “Something like the appointment of Mehdi Hasan tells you they’ve got their heads in the far leftist clouds,” adding, “Huffington Post is seen as a major step down for Mehdi. It’s an embarrassment. It’s pretty much the end of someone’s career.”

In the above video, Hasan can be seen denouncing Pakinstan’s nuclear weapons, though as a known supporter of nuclear-tinkerer Iran, who by the way is presently irate with Google Maps – his stances have sometimes been seen as being haphazard and extreme, a possible reason for his departure from the New Statesman.

Kassam adds, “Everyone knew that the status quo couldn’t continue with Hasan – It was only a matter of time until he was rightly held to account for what became increasingly nonsensical journalism and a repeated refusal to comment on his extreme views as highlighted by the videos.” Snap.

    Hi Mike,

    England is a long way from Kentucky, but hey, you look like a reasonable, objective person (increasingly hard to find on the internet).

    Since you wrote this article, more than two years ago, the proverbial Islamicist wolf in sheep’s clothing has shown its true nature, and as they say, “nature will out”.

    As is typical of the loosely and politely called ‘Far Left’ (Marxist, Leninist, Maoist, Trotskyist – call me old fashioned) agitprop journalist, once you give them a little power (like beggars on horses) it tends to go to their heads – by banning anything defiantly ‘conservative’, or truly Western-freedom defending.

    When you read between the lines, you find a ‘politically correct’, ‘non-judgemental’ and almost uncritical (intellectually) stance on all socially or politically dysfunctional behaviours, Islamic or Muslim-related. Anything Islamo-criminal now posted to Huffington Post UK is strictly watered-down reality, obfuscation, down-right lies, or at best, belated and unavoidable acknowledgement of Muslim-culture-related crimes. Invariably, any that are get painted as ‘mental aberration’ – not baseline Islamic culture, red in tooth and claw.

    Most interestingly, a certain feminist secular Muslim, Tehmina Kazi, a feisty little minx, no longer has her contributions so readily recorded on the pages of Huff Post’s hallowed halls. She was also bullied out of contributing towards the debate against Tablighi Jamaat, East London, 9000+ capacity, mega-mosque public inquiry. Likely, with thinly-veiled death threats.

    Zafer Iqbal · Top Commenter: On Tehmina Kazi: “She’s head of British Muslims for Secular Democracy – can you believe it? I mean how much kufr can you get in one name? That must take the biscuit”!

    Anything to do with condemning outright the gross desecration of privacy, personal liberty and freedom, such as Female Genital Mutilation, or ex-Muslim Safehouses, is studiously avoided by Mehdi (I’m surprised the West isn’t blamed for that too). The Birmingham Trojan Horse schools is all ‘Islamophobia’ and ‘witch hunts’. (I wonder what Islam does with ‘witches’..? Now let me guess..? Stoning? Beheading? Burying alive? Hanging? Throat cutting? Crucifixion? Dismemberment? Disembowelling? Take your bloodthirsty Islamic pick).

    In my case: When it comes to mentioning what has been described by Nordic and other European police forces as a wave of ‘Rape Jihad’ against thousands of young White females; and the sex-grooming by Muslim child-prostitution rings of hundreds of “white sluts and worthless prostitutes”, by gangs of Muslim men in the UK and Europe – such mention is ‘haram’, and gets your account disabled from any further comment, on any subject. Disingenuously described and deleted by Mehdi Hasan as ‘hate speech’. We are talking about defending children here, for pity’s sake.

    British regional police do nothing to profile these Muslim psychopaths for fear of “upsetting social cohesion”. PC, anyone?

    Nowhere on Huffington Post will you find subject discussion of safehouses for ex Muslims who have converted to Christianity, or those fleeing Muslim family persecution or death threats for insisting on personal freedom to chose a mate.

    To put it in the terms of Grand Ayatollah, Mehdi Hasan, “free speech is not an absolute right”. Give a ‘motor mouth’ little man a little power… (thanks to hijacked Home Office rulings).

    Post Script:

    Most interestingly, Hope Not Hate managed to get Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller banned by petition, from addressing a rally by English Defence League through the good offices of a fellow-travelling political thug of Hope Not Hate and himself former BNP lout (and a pregnant partner-batterer) Michael Collins; and Nick Lowles who was involved in the Harrods bombing. The ‘blindsided’ Home Office Teresa May deftly ignored such history.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Spencer_(author)

    “A letter from the UK Home Office stated that this decision is based on
    Spencer’s statement that:

    ” ….It [Islam] is a religion and is a belief system that mandates warfare against
    unbelievers for the purpose for establishing a societal model that is absolutely incompatible with Western society because [of] media and general government[‘s] unwillingness to face the sources of Islamic terrorism, these things remain largely unknown.”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pamela_Geller

    “A Home Office spokesman said: “We can confirm that Pamela Geller is subject to an exclusion decision. The Home Secretary will seek to exclude an individual if she considers that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good. We condemn all those whose behaviours and views run counter to our shared values and will not stand for extremism in any form”.

    With one law for the Left and another law for the Right – what hope for those millions caught in the Middle? Do you remember the film, ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’? (Where the ‘lunatics’ took over the asylum…)?
