The New York Slimes (aka the New York Times) has done quite a lot of damage to their “reputation” ever since Trump got into office, as they frequently use their platform to push fake news and unsubstantiated nonsense about our new president. While you’d think these morons would grow weary of their self-inflicted gunshot wounds at this point, who they just hired as their new employee just proves even further what a cesspool this media corporation has become.
For reasons that defy all logic, the left has an on-going love affair with radical Muslims. These idiots are routinely out in full force defending the actions of these barbarians whenever a terror attack happens, while working overtime to demonize anyone who speaks out against their precious Muslims’ heinous antics. So it shouldn’t come as much surprise that the New York times has just hired Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti to contribute to their opinion section on the weekends for their paper. But this isn’t just any normal Muslim terrorist, but one who is currently serving five consecutive life sentences for multiple murders as well as masterminding a car bomb attack on a crowded civilian center back in 2004. The Washington Examiner reported:
Born in the Palestinian village of Kobar, Barghouti, 57, is currently serving five consecutive life sentences.
He was found guilty in 2004 for being personally responsible for a series of murders. Barghouti was also found to have organized an attempted car bombing on a crowded civilian center.
During his trial, he was also charged with being directly involved in more than 30 attacks that claimed the lives of dozens of civilians. He was exonerated of most of these charges.
None of the reasons for why Barghouti is currently in an Israeli prison are mentioned by the Times.
Rather, at the end of his rather lengthy op-ed, the U.S. paper describes the convicted murderer thusly: “Marwan Barghouti is a Palestinian leader and parliamentarian.”+
Seriously, New York Times? You’re describing this dirtbag as a “Palestinian leader and parliamentarian?” If hiring a convicted terrorist wasn’t enough, the leftist rag is now trying to work overtime to conceal the past of their new employee, while hoping the American people don’t find out.
This isn’t the first time that these liberal halfwits have used Palestinian terrorists as the poster children for their causes. Convicted Palestinian terrorist and Women’s March organizer Rasmea Yousef Odeh’s shady background came to light in recent weeks, where she agreed to be deported in exchange for no jail time after it emerged that she lied about having been convicted of Islamic terrorism. Pj Media reported:
Rasmea claims she was not involved in the supermarket bombing, and was convicted only because she gave a false confession after 25 days of sexual torture. Previously, we have explored the factual conflicts in Rasmea’s story, including that she confessed the day after arrest, not 25 days later; bomb-making material was found in her room; she received an open trial observed by a representative of the International Red Cross who described the trial as fair; and perhaps most important, Rasmea’s co-conspirator, Ayesha Odeh (not related), described in a 2004 interview for a pro-Palestinian filmmaker how Rasmea was the mastermind behind the supermarket bombing.
After serving nearly a decade in prison, Rasmea was released in a prisoner release for an Israel soldier captured in Lebanon.
While she was imprisoned, the PFLP formed the “Rasmea Odeh Brigade” to try to free her and others by taking hostages, and Rasmea was on the list of prisoners whose release was sought by the Black September terrorists who took Israeli athletes hostage (and killed them) at the 1972 Olympics. Yet Rasmea claims she was not involved in terror organizations and was just an innocent political activist when arrested by the Israelis.Rasmea eventually made her way to the U.S. in the mid-1990s.
Rasmea gave false answers on her visa application, and in 2004 on her naturalization application, by denying (among other lies) that she EVER (bold and CAPS in original) was convicted or imprisoned.Rasmieh was convicted of immigration fraud in November 2014.
If you questioned the mental capacity and logic of liberals in the past, no doubt this story solidifies the fact that liberals have truly lost their minds. Could you imagine if FOX News hired a convicted terrorist to write editorials and provide opinions on political events happening around the world? They’d be laughed off the face of the planet!
