The Huffington Post, the liberal website founded by Arianna Huffington, has a branch in Germany, also called The Huffington Post (HuffPo).
In an article (originally published on August 14, 2015 and updated through August 16), HuffPo (Germany) published the names and photos of people who had commented on social media opposing the ongoing “refugee-migrant” invasion. If you post a comment on their website or Facebook page or any social media, you will be named.
The lead author of the article is HuffPo (Germany)’s chief editor Sebastian Matthes.
The article begins by referring to a prior HuffPo article praising Germans who welcomed the “refugees.” Soon after that article was published, HuffPo was flooded with “hateful” comments by people opposed to Germany’s migrant policy, such as “Europe did not invite the parasites,” “our women are harassed,” “kick them out,” and “Sabrina and her ilk should be sold to the ISIS, where they can enjoy the benefits of Islam wholeheartedly.”
It is also claimed that individuals who were quoted in the article received hate mail. One of them asked HuffPo to delete his name because he feared for his family’s safety.
HuffPo continues (my paraphrase of Google’s translation of the German article):
Now, we can do what we Germans have been doing for too long — we can dismiss the haters as “crazy idiots” and just look the other way. For years, we failed to recognize and confront xenophobia and racism. But no more.
The Internet has become a violent mob who act contrary to the values of our Basic Law. It is time for us to defend democracy and confront the haters by revealing their faces and names. In so doing, we are simply exercising the same freedom of expression that they espouse.
Below is a collage of their faces:
The rest of the HuffPo article is a long list of the names and comments made by those who oppose Germany’s generous migrant policy.
Pamela Geller points out the gravity of what HuffPo did:
If you post a comment on their site or Facebook or any social media, you will be named. The Huffington Post is a global news organization. This is putting a target on anyone’s head that refuses to go along with the leftist/Islamic war on freedom. These are the lengths the left will go to impose the sharia (Islamic law) on the unwilling.
I have long said the media is the enemy. It’s why I refer to them as the enemedia. They abdicated their role as a news gathering entity and morphed into an activist organization viciously pursuing an anti-freedom agenda.
Germans that are posting anti-refugee posts on Facebook or any other social media site, are being shut down. Facebook, Twitter, etc, and their faces and accounts are being posted. It’s a witch hunt.
