Every single one of those shows and channels could go bankrupt tomorrow and no one would notice. Soap operas have more integrity and news.

A Senegalese man abducted 51 children when he hijacked an Italian school bus and set the vehicle alight in a protest over migrant deaths in the Mediterranean.

Ousseynou Sy, originally Senegalese but with Italian citizenship, stopped the bus he was driving, with two classes of high school students on board.

He was said to have ordered the children's hands to be bound and threatened to kill them and himself during the drive, before setting the vehicle on fire when he was stopped by a police blockade today.

Officers broke the glass in the back door of the bus and got all the passengers to safety without serious injury before the flames destroyed the vehicle, authorities said.

As he was apprehended, the driver said he was protesting migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, Commander Luca De Marchis told Sky TG24.

News just broke four hours ago

https://www.oneangrygamer.net/2019/03/comedy-centrals-jim-jefferies-says-hes-not-a-big-fan-of-islam-and-thinks-wearing-a-burqa-is-stupid/80629/

Comedian Jim Jefferies took digs at Islam during an interview he had months ago with Jewish content creator Avi Yemini. The interview only recently aired as part of Jefferies’ coverage of the Christchurch, New Zealand shooting, where he used the footage of Yemini to mock him and attempt to portray the outspoken Jewish pundit as Islamophobic while pretending to champion immigration and open borders.

What Jefferies didn’t know was that Yemini had setup his phone to record the conversation while he was being filmed, so that he was able to capture some of Jefferies unedited comments and honest opinions about Islam that didn’t make it into the Jim Jefferies Show on Comedy Central. This was a smart tactic after Jefferies used some editing magic to make #ComicsGate supporter Richard C. Meyer appear racist in a carefully orchestrated hit-piece.

Yemini aired pieces of the segment on his YouTube channel in a seven minute teaser, which you can watch below.


Yemini has plans to release the full hour long video that his phone captured next week.

In the teaser, however, there’s one segment between Jefferies and Yemini where they discuss Muhammad and how you can’t joke about him in Islamic communities because of how dangerous it is. Jefferies ignores Yemini’s forewarning and proceeds to draw a mocking image of the Prophet Mohammad, saying “He looks like a wobbly ghost”.

Later on in the video that was recording the entire session, unbeknownst to Jefferies, the Australian host and Yemini both discuss their dislikes of Islam, to which Jefferies says…

“I’m not a big fan of Islam. […]

“I think that wearing a burqa is stupid and demeaning and all those things.”


The two also discuss which one is dangerous, a dingo or Islam. They both agree that dingos and Islam are dangerous. Yemini notes that a dingo ate a baby – Jefferies cut in and said if a dingo ate a “bloody Muslim baby” it would probably vomit it, to which Yemini recoils and says…

“No… I don’t actually agree with that shit. […] That’s not funny. You’re talking about fucking killing kids. That’s crossing a line. There’s a fucking line.”

Jefferies attempts to smooth it over by hand-waving away the exchange, to which he likely wanted to bait Yemini into furthering the joke to make him look bad during the segment but Yemini didn’t bite. Jefferies then says…

“We’ll edit this bit out. I never look bad in these interviews.”

That’s true for when there is no unedited footage of the interviews. In this case, Yemini provided footage from behind the scenes of Jefferies denigrating Islam and mocking Muhammad.

In the full seven minute segment that aired on Comedy Central, Jefferies is right that he completely avoided being made a fool, but definitely went out of his way to ensure that Yemini was made to look ridiculous. The segment was posted up on March 20th, 2019.]

Jim Jefferies Show

@jefferiesshow
Does Australia's anti-migration fence hold up to its name? Ask the dingo that just crawled under it.

As you can see, the whole bait about the dingos eating Muslim babies was to get Yemini to say something so that he could use it against him during the part where they were talking about the dingo fence. However, thankfully, Yemini didn’t bite.

Also, you’ll note that in the tweet, Jefferies is getting absolutely ripped to shreds in the comment section by people linking to Yemini’s video exposing Jim for being “Islamophobic” and for mocking Muhammad.

As Yemini mentioned in his own video, one must wonder how the Muslims will respond to Jefferies mocking Muhammad?
And America is still sleeping

I'm not a fan of Islam. Honesty don't blame him. If you actually study the religion and see it for what it really is people will understand.
I have been saying this about Islam for years. The first time I read a critical book on Islam, not just a puff piece on them, I was kind of sad.

It was saddening to me because there were 1.5 billion people (almost 2 now) that I thought believed every word of the Koran.

I have since learned that most Muslims are not as strict as we would believe, and that the closest adherents to literal interpretive beliefs on Islam would be ISIS for example.

But, most of the Muslim nations during the Crusades were not unlike ISIS is today. And what can be forgotten can just as easily be remembered...

Their preachers/priests in mosques behind closed doors still say they want non believers dead. They want to take over western governments (I honesty think they nearly have) to enforce their laws onto us and if people resist it's death or enslavement. They of course will deny this to save face in the public eye to be a religion of peace. But the most devout Muslim is the one most likely to kill you. The bloody history of Islam is available to all who care to study it. The Quran/Koran never once speaks of Allah's love for non-Muslims, but there are hundreds of verses that speak of Allah's cruelty toward and hatred of non-Muslims.

Having this knowledge and saying it irl or on the net might land me in trouble one day or worse.

I hope he stands by his comments, but I would bet money that he starts an apology tour ASAP.
He probably won't. He'll take it back and say he meant it a different way.

It's funny, people try to compare christianity and islam, saying the bible has some pretty bad stuff in it (and it does).

However, it's pretty easy to see the difference when you look at the two religion's most important messengers from god. Islam has Mohammed, warlord, conquerer, rapist. He told his followers to convert people by the sword.

On the other hand, christianity has jesus. Jesus was a communist hippy who wanted everyone to be kind to everyone else, even the lowest people, like whores and robbers. He said the response to violence is pacifism. He never recommended anyone be murdered, as far as I know.

I mean, come on. Sure, the old testament has some weird shit in it, but there simply aren't christians going around trying to enforce that nobody wear clothing made of mixed fabrics.

Well example what does Islam say about the Mohamed Atta? He is revered as a mujahid, meaning a holy warrior, and an Islamic martyr. They are only as peaceful as everyone else until they really get into their religion.

Did Jesus personally take up the sword or order his disciples to take up the sword and kill in the name of his religion?

No he did not.

Did Mohamed personally take up the sword and order his disciples to take up the sword and kill in the name of his religion?

Yes he did and he did violently.
