CAIR & Huffington Post target private citizen @AmyMek

Verizon’s Huffington Post author Luke O’Brien says Amy Mek “spread hate online for years”

More evidence of the left’s tendency for tyranny is apparent in the terrifying story of a private citizen who uses the handle @AmyMek on Twitter. Mek was viciously doxxed by a particularly vile “journalist” named Luke O’Brien of the Verizon-owned Huffington Post, who unapologetically revealed the prominent Twitter personality’s real name and that of her husband, ultimately resulting in the loss of his job at World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

The irony is that in the wake of the attack, the most cringe-worthy, vitriolic sputum has been aimed enthusiastically at Amy Mek, while these same – often anonymous accounts – are simultaneously and self-righteously promoting tolerance.

They are only tolerant of a lock-step philosophy that dare not be challenged.

According to one of the few trustworthy journalists, Paul Sperry, Amy was not a random target.

The Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR) specifically targeted Amy Mek, along with President Trump’s National Security Council appointee Fred Fleitz.

Luke O’Brien quotes Ibrahim Hooper (Islam convert who was born in Canada as Douglas Hooper) of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as saying that Amy is “a major cog in the Islamophobia machine.”

Ibrahim Hooper, it should be noted, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune in 1993:

“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future, but I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”

Here is Hooper (left) with Nihad Awad and Mahdi Bray, both of whom were featured in Trevor Loudon’s film, The “Enemies Within” for their support of the terrorist organization Hamas.

Here is the relevant snippet of the film (used with permission):

Needless to say, Amy is horrified and tweeted about the doxxing attack on her and her family.

Huffington Post has crossed a line, claiming they have the right to expose a private citizen on Twitter. Is this the new norm? Amy Mek has a large Twitter following, and she says things that the left doesn’t like. They don’t like Amy. They don’t like that she has a platform. That is why she was targeted by CAIR and the Huffington Post.

As noted by Daniel Greenfield:

“So yes, that’s doxxing. And it’s being conducted by a Verizon company. Verizon bought AOL. And AOL bought Arianna Huffington’s cage of trolls and crazies. So the reputational risk is on them.

Luke repeatedly uses the word, ‘cruel’ in his attack on a Twitter user. A more accurate description of ‘cruelty’ would be targeting a Twitter user, making assorted claims about her personal life, getting her husband fired from his job, because he doesn’t like her views.”

Even this author was shocked to see a so-called mainstream “journalist” jump on the bandwagon. Soledad O’Brien eagerly grabbed her pitchfork, referring to Amy Mek as a “crazy troll and racist” evidently deserving of the doxxing doled on her by the Huffington Post.

Here are of some of Luke O’Brien’s tweets. This is the man using the platform given to him by Verizon to engage in doxxing private citizens:

Thank goodness we have Verizon’s Huffington Post author Luke O’Brien to help us not be hateful, Here are a compilation of just some of his tweets. Excuse the language.

Soledad wasn’t the only “journalist” celebrating the take-down of a private citizen.

Ben Collins of NBC News:

Some other disgusting responses:

It is hard to imagine what the worst part is about this story… the fact that a private citizen was doxxed by a “mainstream” source, the rampant leftist apologists for the doxxing of Amy, or the fact that conservative outlets have in large part, at least for now, have not picked this up.

If Americans do not strike back hard against the vile attack on Amy Mek, it encourages continued attacks against free thinkers who dare to speak their minds. You do not have to agree with everything Amy says, but you should defend her freedom of speech.
