On news of the shooting of two police officers in Brooklyn, right wing smear merchant Chuck C. Johnson immediately launched a full-on hate campaign, culminating in this frenzied piece of sheer bigotry (another “BREAKING EXCLUSIVE,” of course — they all are): BREAKING, EXCLUSIVE: NYPD Cop Killer Worked for Alleged Muslim Terror Front Group - GotNews.
Johnson is trying to take the act of a sociopathic career criminal and turn it into an opportunity to incite hatred against Muslims, and he’s not above using flat-out lies to do it. He quotes his usual far right “source” for these police-related stories:
“His killing of his ex-girlfriend is entirely consistent with an honor killing,” says John Cardillo, a former NYPD police officer who investigated terror cells in New York.
This was posted last night, and I saw several people on Twitter point out to Chuck that it’s simply wrong, but… no correction, of course.
Ismaaiyl Brinsley’s ex-girlfriend was:
- Not killed; she was seriously wounded but is expected to recover.
- Absolutely not the victim of an "honor killing."
In fact, Brinsley went to her apartment intending to kill himself, but she talked him out of it — and he repaid her kindness by shooting her.
This was no “honor killing,” not even an attempted “honor killing” — and it had nothing to do with Brinsley’s Muslim faith. It was a spree killing, ending in a suicide.
A horrible crime, made worse by grotesque bottom feeders like Chuck C. Johnson who use it to spread hatred and divisiveness.
And now this despicable low-life is smearing the killer’s mother: BREAKING: NYPD Cop Killer’s Jamaican Mom Praises Polygamy, Hates Capitalism - GotNews.
