So, we have a racist sneak into documentary screened by a conservative group at McGill University in Montreal. The racist is not exactly a fan of the film, and starts live-Tweeting his thoughts during the presentation. The Tweets include specific threats to the audience.
What kind of threats you ask? How about wishing he had brought a M-16 to shoot the other people in the room. I really don’t care what the documentary was, but here is a little background from thestar.com…
The student, Haaris Khan, was watching a documentary screened by the Conservative Party’s campus arm, Conservative McGill, when he appeared to become increasingly agitated and expressed himself on Twitter using his BlackBerry.
“I’ve infiltrated a Zionist meeting. I feel like I’m at a Satanist ritual,” he allegedly wrote at the March 8th screening.
“I want to shoot everyone in this room,” another tweet said. “Never been this angry.”
The tweets call the documentary a “Zionist/Conservative propaganda film” and the gathering, which attracted about 20 students, “a secret Zionist convention.”
Then: “I should have brought an M16.”
Of course, the student is now under investigation and the above does not really surprise me one bit. What caught my eye was the comment from Morton Mendelson, deputy provost of student life and learning.
“It highlights the downside of social media,” he said, and “the ability of a single person who happens to be in a room somewhere to disseminate inappropriate, threatening messages to the world at large, and there are consequences to that.”
He continued: “We really have to be responsible in how we’re using the Internet and social media.”
So the problem is social media? Are you nuts? Quite the contrary deputy provost my boy. I love social media since it makes it a lot easier for us to pick out the problem children in the world who frequently hang out in gun-free zones while publishing their homicidal fantasies for the world to see.
I’d rather see these scumbags coming instead of being surprised thank you very much.
Keep Tweeting away you lunatics.
