OT, but I decided to look up our “journalist” from earlier.
Apparently, she has a history of Islam-bashing, and actually has done speeches about this at Universities.
Her piece was more or less meant to protect her friends, while smearing an opponent. She is also saying that she is not allowed to register, even though Charles did open the registration for a time.
She is doing the martyr routine. Someone want to comment there that registration was open, and that she obviously did not take advantage of it?
