    Donald Trump Just Retweeted Anti-Muslim Videos Posted By Far-Right Group Britain First

    Donald Trump has retweeted three anti-Muslim videos posted by the deputy leader of the far-right British political party Britain First.

    The videos originally posted by Jayda Fransen are captioned “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!”, “VIDEO: Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!” and “VIDEO: Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!”

    Britain First is electorally insignificant but has gained a reputation in the UK for headline-grabbing anti-Muslim media stunts, including occupying mosques and halal slaughterhouses.

    Fransen responded to Trump sharing her videos to 44 million followers by tweeting “GOD BLESS YOU TRUMP! GOD BLESS YOU AMERICA!”

    The videos retweeted by Trump come from various sources.

    The clip of a man being pushed off a rooftop was filmed in Egypt during the 2013 overthrow of president Mohamed Morsi. One man was hanged after being found guilty of the crime.

    The clip of two teenagers fighting originally went viral after being posted to Dutch video sharing website Dumpert.nl. The video led to an arrest of a 16 year old boy in Monnickendam and the video was removed from Dumpert at the request of the police.

    Dumpert’s sister website Geenstijl has since posted a debunk of the video claiming that no migrants were involved in the video and calling Trump’s retweet “fake news”.

    The source of the video showing a Virgin Mary statue being destroyed is unclear.

    Trump does not follow Fransen, raising questions about how he encountered the Britain First deputy leader’s tweets. However, right-wing journalist Ann Coulter, who the President follows, did retweet one of the videos on Tuesday night.

    Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars editor-at-large and a leading right-wing internet commentator based in the UK, suggested the move was “not great optics”.

    Britain First is a niche political party with no elected representatives which was formed by former members of the British National Party, itself an offshoot of the National Front. It has largely served as a vehicle for Fransen and Golding’s activities but was one of the first UK political groups to realise the potential of social media.

    BuzzFeed News has previously reported how a small number of Britain First members are used to spread anti-Muslim anti-immigrant rhetoric, sometimes disguised as memes about animal welfare. The party also paid Facebook to promote its anti-Islam material into users’ newsfeeds.

    Britain First leader Paul Golding stood for election as mayor of London in 2016, finishing a distant eighth place behind Labour’s Sadiq Khan, the first Muslim to hold the post. Golding responded by turning his back on Khan’s victory speech in protest.

    The party gained prominence following the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox by the far right extremist Thomas Mair during the 2016 EU referendum campaign. In the hours after the attack, posts on the page cast doubt on whether or not Mair had shouted “Britain First” as he killed Cox outside a constituency surgery.

    Cox’s husband said Trump was vindicating the British far-right group.

    The party, which threatened “militant direct action” against elected Muslims, operates a “defence force”, and gives activists “self-defence training” on camping retreats.

    A Defendant “Took Poison” As His Verdict Was Read Out During A War Crimes Tribunal

    A Bosnian Croat war crimes defendant drank from a small bottle and claimed to have “taken poison” as the verdict in his case was read out at the UN’s International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) at The Hague in the Netherlands on Wednesday.

    Former general Slobodan Praljak — one of six Bosnian Croat leaders up before the court — had just heard his 2013 sentence of 20 years’ imprisonment for crimes in east Mostar during the Croat-Bosniak war had been upheld.

    Multiple outlets reported that Praljak, 72, stood up from his seat and shouted that he was “not a war criminal,” before appearing to down the liquid in the bottle.

    Video footage shows the presiding judge asking him to “stop” and “sit down.”

    The judge continued to read out another of the defendant’s verdicts amid scenes of confusion, before realizing what had happened. Praljak’s lawyer shouted that his client had told him he’d “taken poison,” multiple outlets reported.

    The judge immediately suspended the hearing and asked that the courtroom’s curtains be lowered to hide the defendants from the public. The live feed of the hearing also went blank, according to BBC News.

    The BBC’s correspondent at The Hague tweeted that she had heard the judge request the vessel he drank from not be taken away, and that an ambulance had been called.

    Praljak, who had spent much of his life as a theatre director before joining the armed forces in 1991, served as assistant minister of defense during the conflict between 1992 and 1994.

    In 2013 he and five others were found guilty of orchestrating a campaign to force Bosnian Muslims out of their homes and claim their territories.

    Praljak was responsible for directing one of the most dramatic episodes of the campaign in November 1993: the bombing of the “Stari Most” bridge, an impressive 16th-century Ottoman structure crossing the Neretva river.

    Charges against the defendants include breaching the Geneva Conventions, violating the laws of war, and crimes against humanity in around 30 municipalities in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    16 Moments That Involve Sex That’ll Make You Say “Fuck.”

    1. In the 1960s, the KGB tried to blackmail Indonesian President Achmed Sukarno on a Moscow visit by sending prostitutes to his hotel room and secretly filming the sexual encounter. When they showed President Sukarno the film, he was delighted and asked for copies to show people back home.

    2. Axl Rose recorded audio of himself having sex with 19-year-old Adriana Smith, who was the girlfriend of fellow Guns N’ Roses bandmate Steven Adler. He then put that audio into the final mix for “Rocket Queen.” When Adler found out what the recording was about, he “fucking freaked out.”

    3. In 1912, scientist George Murray Levick observed a colony of penguins in the Antarctic. To his astonishment, he witnessed male penguins coerce female penguins into sex. He also observed them having sex with other male penguins and dead females.

    These specific findings were removed from his published works in order to “preserve decency.”

    4. Thad Roberts, a student at the University of Utah and intern at NASA, stole moon rocks from a NASA vault. He proceeded to spread the moon rocks over his bed…and had sex on them.

    Roberts was captured by the FBI and served six years for the theft.
    When asked if the lovemaking on the rocks was comfortable, Roberts answered, “Yeah, it’s more uncomfortable than not. But it wasn’t about the comfort at that point. It was about the expression.”

    5. Gerald Foos owned the Manor House Motel in Aurora, Colorado. He specifically bought the hotel to spy on guests having sex without their knowledge. He would climb into the attic and watch through peep holes installed in the ceilings. He also kept notes about his “subjects.”

    He claims to have been conducting research on sexual behaviors. Foos’ story was the subject of a controversial article in The New Yorker by Gay Talese.

    6. British band Rockbitch would throw a “golden condom” into the audience. Whoever caught it would get to have sex with the band members backstage.

    7. Due to legal reasons, Christopher Mintz-Plasse had to have his mom on the set of Superbad when he filmed his famous sex scene because he was 17 years of age. “We still don’t speak about that moment,” Mintz-Plasse said of the ordeal.

    8. Oral sex in Canada was illegal until 1969.

    Yup…1969.

    9. In 2011, in France, a woman successfully sued her ex-husband over his refusal to have sex with her during their marriage. The sex drought lasted 21 years, and a judge ordered the ex-husband to pay $15,000, valuing his “services” at $714 a year.

    According to The Telegraph, “The 51-year-old man was fined under article 215 of France’s civil code, which states married couples must agree to a ‘shared communal life.'” The judge included sexual relations as part of the marriage.

    10. In Japan, there’s a non-profit organization called White Hands, comprised of medical sex workers who help people with severe physical disabilities to ejaculate.

    11. In 2001, a 15-year-old Australian boy with terminal cancer asked to lose his virginity as his final wish. A group of friends, along with his psychologist, escorted the boy to a prostitute in Sydney’s red-light district. The parents of the child were not consulted.

    Due to his illness, the boy was unable to meet girls his age, going in and out of hospitals since the age of 12. After a series of discussions, and making sure the boy was in a mature, sensible, and competent state of mind, he made the decision to help him achieve his final wish.

    12. In 1986, in the town of Council Grove, Kansas, a sheriff and his wife made a sex tape using rented equipment from a local video store. When the sheriff returned the equipment, he accidentally left the sex tape in the player. The tape was copied and distributed throughout the town.

    According to reports, there were approximately 200 copies of the tape in circulation. Interest in the tape also went beyond the small town.

    13. The Natural History Museum in Sweden holds the world’s only stuffed blue whale. Its jaws were once open for visitors to enter and explore its insides. But after discovering a couple having sex inside the whale, the museum shut down the jaws, and only have it open for special occasions.

    The chairman of the board of the museum stated, “We must be content with the fact that it was two citizens of our own city that enjoyed this privilege.”

    14. From 1955 to 1965, the CIA conducted “Operation Midnight Climax” out of San Francisco. It was a top-secret, mind-control program where they used prostitutes to lure unsuspecting men into a designated room and douse them with LSD. They would then observe the sexual encounters through a one-way mirror.

    The operation was a sub-project of the CIA’s infamous Project MKULTRA.

    15. In 2003, Holly Marie Adams had sex with identical twins Raymon and Richard Miller on the same day, hours apart. She then got pregnant. Holly originally named Raymon the father, but he contested. So, a paternity test was done, which revealed that BOTH men had over 99.9% probability of being the father.

    The courts have ruled Raymon as the father, and is expected to continue paying child support despite the ambiguity. He continues to fight the case.
