Yes. That wasn't what i meant.

Hi, I'm Howey.

I'm here to tell you that the guy who doctored up that video is a fraud and a schmuck well known for fake news.

JTA — Pressed to explain his false claim that something terrible had happened in Sweden last week, President Donald Trump traced the canard back to the reporting of Ami Horowitz, a gonzo Jewish-American filmmaker who spoke about Sweden’s problem with Muslim immigrants on Fox News.

On Saturday, during a campaign-style speech in Florida on border security and immigrants, Trump urged listeners to “look at what’s happening last night in Sweden,” leading to widespread puzzlement and mockery from Swedes who said no terrorist attack had taken place there the previous day or even recently.


The president’s reference was arguably a breakthrough for Horowitz, focusing rare international attention on Sweden’s immigrant crime debate, which Horowitz has spent considerable — and controversial — efforts investigating.

In his Fox News interview Horowitz, a former investment banker turned activist with a camera, claimed violent crime by refugees was out of control in Sweden and that the government there is covering up reports of rape to protect “vulnerable” migrants.

Coming amid a polarizing debate about the millions of immigrants arriving in Europe from the war-torn Middle East and Africa, the comments by Trump touched off a discussion about the president’s shaky handle on the facts.

But, Horowitz told JTA, it also “put a spotlight on the main issue: Sweden’s problems with immigration and crime. Which is positive.”


A 43-year-old father of two, Horowitz last year went filming in a no-go zone in the Stockholm neighborhood of Husby, where he recorded an alleged assault on himself by several Arab speakers who objected to his filming on the street.

“My crew ran off when they approached, but since I was miked we have the first few seconds of the attack,” Horowitz, a Los Angeles native who lives in New York, told the Daily Mail. “They repeatedly punched, kicked and choked me as a number of bystanders watched. Eventually they dragged me into a building, which at the time I assumed was to finish me off.” Horowitz ultimately was released.

In 2014, he filmed the reactions of students at the University of California, Berkeley, as he variously waved Israeli and ISIS flags on campus; students are shown ignoring the ISIS flag but reacting angrily to Israel’s. In another film he asked New Yorkers to sign a petition titled “Cops’ Lives Matter.”



Initially, Horowitz’s no-go experience in Sweden generated little attention in the country, where “mainstream media tend to not report the ethnicity of perpetrators of crimes,” according to an employee of the Swedish Migration Board who spoke to JTA on Tuesday on condition of anonymity for fear of being fired.

But Trump’s remarks focused intense attention in Sweden to the link between crime rates in the country of 9 million and its admittance since 2013 of more than 300,000 asylum seekers mainly from Muslim countries.

Trump’s remark also exposed Horowitz to criticism for his gonzo style of journalism, which owes more to Michael Moore and “The Daily Show” than CNN. In the past he has filmed interviews without permission, provoked onlookers’ reactions with outrageous stunts and edited footage to ridicule interviewees. Horowitz defends his methodology as accurate, though he admits it is “confrontational and provocative.”

And yet when the former Grand Dragon runs for congress, he runs as a Republican.

The KKK shifted to the GOP long ago, around the same time that minorities shifted to the Democratic Party.

Your article proves squat. I can just as easily say that it demonstrates that people voted Republican because they were sick and tired of the KKK and their Democrat overseers or Grand Dragons, whatever.

That's a tired and dishonest meme I've seen for years on the internet. While not founded by a "liberal tyranny", lol, the roots of the KKK can be tied to Democrats of the day unfortunately philosophically those Democrats (known as Dixiecrats) are today known as Republicans.

Only highly moral people can have liberty. What people in the US have done to the understanding of moral and liberal is a terrible thing. The rest of the world does NOT have the same meaning of liberal. Around the world, liberal is not a bad word. Only in the US is it a bad word.

Morality must be based on an understanding of cause and effect and the effect of social injustice and prejudice is very bad, so it is not a liberal choice. Failure to understand this leads to a police state, the opposite of what a liberal wants. Our liberty begins with making moral choices.

Our decision must be based on principles and cause and effect, not what we think of others. Education for democracy would end the racist issues because it would lead to a higher standard of morality.
