NY Times Publishes Fake News About Revised Travel Order And Islamic Terror


After President Donald Trump released his revised travel order, the left once again went wild with false claims about what it all meant. In particular, The New York Times jumped on the order and justified its criticism by making false claims. Typical liberal fake news.

In it’s story about Trump’s newest travel order, Glenn Thrush insisted that no terrorist has attacked the U.S. from any of the nations that are mentioned in the president’s temporary moratorium on travel. He went even further to claim that few Americans have been killed by terrorists inside the U.S.A. since 2001.

Here is how Thrush put it in his March 7 piece:

Since 2001, 18 of the 36 Muslim extremists who have engaged in attacks inside the United States were born in the United States, while 14 migrated here as children and would not have been stopped by the new vetting process, according to an analysis by Charles Kurzman, a professor at the University of North Carolina.

None came from the banned nations; Muslim extremists have accounted for 16 out of 240,000 murders in the United States since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

First of all that last bit is 100% wrong. Thrush insisted that only 16 people have been murdered in the U.S. by Muslim extremists since 2001. But he is way, way off on his math.

Thrush must have forgotten about the Orlando nightclub attack where a Muslim extremist killed 49 innocent people. That is already a far sight more than the mere 16 Thrush claimed have been killed by Muslim extremists since 2001.

Then there was the murderous rampage in San Bernardino where two Muslim extremists, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, killed 14 innocents in 2015.

Just those two incidents alone amount to 63 deaths of Americans inside the U.S.A., all killed by Muslim extremists. And these two attacks are only two of half a dozen more attacks that killed dozens of others.

 So, right off the top, The New York Time’s Glenn Thrush shows that math is hard for liberals.
 But in his NYT piece, Thrush had a second lie.

In Trump’s March Six order, the government put a temporary halt to travel from seven countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

Notice that in Thrush’s piece he said that there has never been a Muslim from any of those countries who has killed Americans here at home. But this is simply untrue.

While no one was killed, in November of last year a Muslim from Somalia ran his car over a large group of people injuring 11 at Ohio State University. Then there was the man who knifed nine people in a mall in Minnesota while yelling “Allahu Akbar” in September. The second man was also a Somali.

One look at that list of seven nations on Trump’s list clearly shows Somalia.
