This week, Muslim-American activist and Women’s March speaker Linda Sarsour raised over $110,000 in donations for a Somali-American woman who claims to be the victim of a violent hate crime. But other individuals involved in the altercation dispute Sarsour’s storyline. Courtney Love Cobain, for one, condemned Sarsour for creating a publicity stunt.
In the latest controversy, according to Sarsour, 40-year-old single mother Rahma Warsame was “brutally beaten by a white man as she came to the defense of another sister.” Sarsour described the injuries alongside pictures of Warsame’s bruised nose and lip. Sarsour claims that Warsame needs money to provide for her 12-year-old son.
The Council on American Islamic Relations has called for a hate crime probe and the arrest of the person responsible for the alleged attack. The organization’s attorneys, who represent Warsame, repeated her claims that a white man made racist statements about how “you all will be shipped back to Africa” prior to beating her. The alleged attacker was interviewed by police and released without charge.
The two individuals accused of the hate crime tell a much different story. Speaking to the Daily Caller, Samantha Morales says that what happened is the exact opposite of what CAIR and Sarsour are claiming.
Morales, a 31-year-old woman of Mexican heritage, says that she was involved in a neighborhood dispute and was first attacked by a mob of men and women—a group that included Warsame.
“What happened is not what she is claiming. The woman that is in the hospital, I feel sorry for her, but she is one of the women who was kicking and hitting me after I got tased,” said Morales, who added that her boyfriend Ricky Boyce is the man CAIR and Sarsour are accusing of committing a hate crime.
Both Morales and Boyce say they were not racist towards Warsame during the altercation, which started when Morales tried to stop a woman of African heritage from yelling and hitting her son with a shoe. Morales says she called 911 before the argument turned violent.
Boyce says Morales was jumped for attempting to intervene in the situation, and that when he got into the melee he had no time to talk to any of Morales’ alleged assailants, which included “four or five different men” and a group of women.
Morales, who claims to be the real victim of the altercation, was also brought to a hospital emergency room by ambulance. The Daily Caller received a copy of her emergency room discharge papers showing that she underwent a CT Scan and X-rays for her injuries.
The publication also states that the police report taken of the incident supports Morales’ and Boyce’s claims. The report states that a person named Muna Warsame was armed with a taser, which came to be used on Morales. However, due to “conflicting statements” the police were unable to identify the primary aggressor. The report also notes that Morales called 911 a day after the brawl after she was threatened outside her apartment.
When Sarsour launched her crowdfund for Warsame, Courtney Love Cobain spoke out on Twitter to condemn her for creating a fake situation.
“You’re a vile disgrace to women and all mankind, @lsarsour,” wrote Cobain, “I’m on the side of all human equality rights, spreading knowledge and encouraging peace and understanding. I feel you have the opposite agenda.”
Declaring Sarsour’s crowdfund to be a publicity stunt, Cobain added, “I worked my ass off my entire life to defend women, I didn’t create fake stories and lie about them nor rip people off financially.”
Cobain had equally harsh words for the Women’s March. “Unfollowed. I won’t follow anything that’s being led by an anti-Semitic terrorist that’s using feminism as a tool to promote her radicalism,” she said.
Social justice warriors have turned the matter of prominent feminist YouTuber Laci Green’s romantic relationship with anti-social justice YouTuber Chris Ray Gun into a political issue.
Feeling personally slighted by Green’s decision to reach across ideological lines to engage with her former detractors and critics, they’ve taken to compiling a dossier on Green, releasing her private information, and engaging in a large-scale campaign of public harassment. The personal, as feminists say, is political.
Following news that Green, who is famous for her educational videos on sex positivity, was dating the anti-SJW YouTube personality, a dossier or “masterpost” compiled at least a year ago resurfaced on Tumblr this week. It has received over 7,000 shares and responses from outrage warriors with a huge slate of additions and updates. The dossier contains around a hundred complaints about Laci Green, based on statements and videos she made over the years—many of which are taken out of context or interpreted through the lens of outrage.
Complaints include links to even more complaints written by users across Tumblr, where Laci Green is judged and found guilty of everything from “fat shaming,” “transphobia,” and “cis-sexism,” to “identity policing.” Even her apologies over some of the things she was called out for are deemed “pathetic.” Green previously received death threats for using the word “tranny” in a 2009 video.
Green’s refusal to ostracize and distance herself from Tyler Oakley, a popular LGBT YouTuber deemed transphobic and sexist by social justice warriors, is among the many “problems” they have with her.
The dossier isn’t the only thing to dog Green, who revealed yesterday that she was doxed by someone she believed she could trust.
“Shoutout to whichever SJW asshole leaked my private info on Facebook and sent a torrent of people to harass me and my family for ‘colonizing,’” stated Green on Twitter.
The doxing and harassment Green has received is reminiscent of a social justice warrior-driven effort to unmask “Mombot,” a female Japanese GamerGate supporter and anti-SJW, in an attempt to silence her. Many of the individuals responsible for the doxing attempt have been vocal detractors of Laci Green in recent weeks.
Green refuses to be silent, and redoubled her efforts in speaking out against social justice orthodoxy today. She expressed that feminists’ tendency to declare any sort of dissent as “harm” came at the expense of trauma survivors.
TRUSSVILLE, Ala. (ChurchMilitant.com) – A 13-year-old suffering from gender dysphoria took her life in late May after her parents, Erin and Matt Georgia, allowed her to identify and present herself as a boy. Jane Marie Georgia was allowed to begin her “transition” in sixth grade, changing her name to “Jay Griffin.”
The parents found their daughter dead in her bedroom on Thursday, May 25. In the months leading up to her death, she had been placed on medications for anxiety and depression.
A 2016 study by the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center said that the suicide attempt rate among transgender youth is 30 percent.
Jane’s mother Erin said, “Don’t get me wrong, I mourned the loss of a daughter,” referring to Jane’s so-called transition, “but then I realized that I’d been praying for a son my whole life. God answered that prayer, in just a different way.”
Georgia also said the family went to church together in search of a “safe space,” but that even “welcoming” churches did not meet the unexplained criteria of being safe. “As Jay was going through this journey, he would go to church with us. The church was welcoming, but there was no safe space,” she continued.
“Me and Jay would go to different churches to find places that were safe for us,” she said. “I say ‘us’ because I often feel like an outsider because I just love everybody, and that’s kind of hard in a Christian Bible Belt state.”
Georgia went on to imply that Trump’s election may have had something to do with her daughter’s difficulties: “It’s probably been the roughest since the (presidential) elections.” She thinks this is “because hate crimes have increased by 20 percent since the election and people feel more validated to be more discriminatory.”
Last year the American College of Pediatricians put out a statement that said in plain words, “Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.”
The pediatric organization went on to explain that children’s feelings about their identity do not indicate that they are truly whatever sex they claim to belong to. “No one is born with an awareness of themselves as male or female,” the group stated. “This awareness develops over time and, like all developmental processes, may be derailed by a child’s subjective perceptions, relationships and adverse experiences from infancy forward.”
Church Militant recently reported on a soon-to-be released documentary on ex-transgenders who found healing. They reveal to the public the face of transgender regret, especially following surgery. The film, titled TranZformed: Finding Peace With Your God-Given Gender, was produced by David Kyle Foster, who told Church Militant that the film emphasizes the humanity of people trapped in transgenderism.
“The message of the film is that people are very broken; they need lots of help,” he said. “And the last kind of help they should be getting is not what they’re getting.”
