DEBUNKED: Major Fake News Hit Piece on Nigel Farage Gets Torn Apart

Published

on

Human Events Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam exposed a major Fake News story on Twitter.

The Sun originally published a piece claiming that Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage was “trapped on Brexit bus due to people armed with milkshakes.”

However, Kassam, who was at this event, presented a different account. He set the record straight in a tweet thread.

Kassam encouraged his followers to tweet at Tom Newton Dunn, the editor of The Sun, and expose this error because Dunn had blocked Kassam.

The Human Events editor provided some context to this event:

After several walking campaign stops (including, bravely, between a McDonalds and a Burger King) @Nigel_Farage was due to pull up to supporters on his bus and do media interviews from the top deck. He was never scheduled to get off.

It was established that Farage would not get off the Brexit bus as he and his associates campaigned throughout Kent. Kassam noted this:

We all knew that because 5 mins before we arrived we were told by organizers “we don’t need to get off, we’re not getting off”.

Regardless, Kassam got off the bus to interact with people in the crowd.

I got off anyway, and mingled in the crowd. Did some selfies. Then I spotted the so called milkshake assassins. They hadn’t “surrounded” the bus. They were 2 rather polite kids and one mid aged guy who were quite nice when engaged in debate. We shook hands.

There was a Periscope video of this interaction as well.

The supposed milkshakes that The Sun discovered were actually empty frappuccino cups.

You can also see their “milkshakes” which were actually frappuccinos I think (important distinction) were basically empty. They had no intention of throwing them, and everyone knew that.

The Sun allegedly quoted the Brexit bus driver, Michael Botton, but Kassam asserts that they never interviewed him during this event. The Sun was only told that Farage was not getting off the bus.

Kassam made it clear that there was no “milkshake army” of protestors like The Sun depicted.

After Kassam left the area, Farage actually got off the bus to pose for selfies.

 In a final tweet, Kassam pointed out that The Sun editor, Tom Newton Dunn, is the son of former Member of the European Parliament Bill Newton Dunn. Bill Newton Dunn was a member of the Conservative Party who later switched to the Liberal Democrats party. This coverage of the Brexit event suggests some degree of political bias given that the Lib Dems are only at 19 percent in the polls, while the Brexit Party is firmly in first place at 37 percent.

If these polls stay intact come election time on May 23, 2019, Farage’s Brexit Party will be the largest single party in the European Parliament.

Narrative Buster: Media Ignores Milwaukee Molson Coors Mass Shooter

Published

on

Antony Ferrill, the man accused of killing five co-workers and himself at a Molson Coors plant, reportedly had a long-running dispute with the co-worker .

The New York Post reported that Ferrill had frequently gotten into arguments with one of the victims he killed, a fellow electrician, according to an account that an employee related to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The two co-workers had been accusing each other of going into each other’s’ offices and messing with computer equipment or swiping tools, according to a source, who did not want to be named.

The source also noted that Ferrill frequently watched movies on his phone throughout the day, which other co-workers complained about, and Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was black.

Earlier in the day, Ferrill had been fired but ended up returning to the business facility with a stolen name tag and his firearm, according to WBBM-TV.

Ferrill had worked as an electrician for over 20 years. 17 of those years were spent at the Milwaukee brewery, according to a report from the Sentinel, which pointed to various sources and online employment records.

The tradesman turned murderer started to become paranoid at work, reportedly telling co-workers about a year ago that he suspected his bosses were breaking into his house, hacking his computer. and rearranging his furniture.

“I was, ‘Are you serious, Anthony? What?’” the unnamed employee informed the Sentinel. “We all kind of joked about it, saying we should maybe get him an aluminum hat. But he was dead serious about it.”

According to Phillip Rauch Sr., who worked with Ferrill for 15 years at the brewery, he was “a very good electrician.”

“Every time I worked with him, he was always in a good mood,” Rauch told the Sentinel.

Interestingly, the media did not focus much on the story.

Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars noted this on Twitter.

He tweeted, “Wow, this disappeared from the discussion quickly.”

Simply put, when a non-White commits an atrocity, the media will do everything it can to downplay it.

However, when a white person carries out a shooting, there will be non-stop coverage about growing white supremacy or other bugaboos the media is willing to conjure up.
