Feminist Activist loses millions of dollars of funding because of a hateful tweet UPDATED**

UPDATE: It has been drawn to my attention that this story is false. I thought I had verified it as it was on a number of websites but it appears that none of them were MSM sites. I apologise for my mistake.

I had checked Snopes but nothing came up and because I had a screenshot of a tweet I thought it was real. I apologise for my mistake. It was not intentional.

    This won’t be in the Herald on Sunday or any other day. C’mon now Herald prove me wrong, put it on the front page. Just like you did with John Key’s so called ‘plummeting approval ratings.

    • Dave

      The only chance of it appearing in Granny Herald is if the Labour Party, or the unions release it as a press release or another socialist starts spreading it on Social Media. Gone are the days of real journalism, besides, the teams at APN & Failfax are busy preparing their CV’s and rewriting history to bolster their job prospects in or after the merger.

        Turn’s out my fact checking wasn’t deep enough. I have removed it.

      A lot of this story doesnt ‘add up’

      Hosseini isnt an arab name seems more persian to me. The Arab American association doesnt have any connection to her, so she doesnt run it

      The funding talked about was $6 mill over about 8 groups for mental health support groups in NY. The paperwork supplied by AAANY doesnt mention her name at all, so she doesnt seem to be even an employee.

      There is no connection to NYC mayors press releases about any funding withdrawal, nor from the Charitable group ‘The mayors Fund’. So that part about losing funds doesnt stack up

      The name Tahira Hosseini only seems to be connected to the above story, which is strange for an ‘activist’ as you would think she had other activities or groups ( no connection to AAANY) she worked with.

      seems to be a non existant person, other than the tweet- a terrible thing to say- but has no basis to connect to any other people

  • Really?

    She seems in desperate / urgent need of some of those mental-health services.

  • Pluto

    Is it any wonder so many people have a state of mind she describes as “islamaphobic” ?

  • Ruahine

    A true loudmouth religious bigot.

    • kereru

      A true loudmouth Islamic bigot. Let’s be specific here.

      • spanishbride

        I was wrong the story isn’t true. I fell for a hoax.

    • spanishbride

      She is innocent I fell for a fake story sorry.

  • Joe Burns

    Many thanks for posting this one. Limp-wristed liberals need to have this brought to their wider audience.

    • spanishbride

      I was in error. It was a hoax and I fell for it.

  • I’d bet her “non-profit” organisation accomplishes next to nothing other than to provide her and some friends a healthy salary out of the million dollars a year they were going to get

    • localnews

      thats right, pay yourself enough and you can make any organisation non profit

    • spanishbride

      I made a mistake. Sorry.

  • JEL51

    Who said you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover? Just one look at that face says it all.

    • spanishbride

      Turns out she is innocent and I fell for someone’s nasty hoax.

      • JEL51

        I still would not invest too much time in one with that Mona Lisa thing happening. ; )

    ‘A word invented by anarchists to be used by cowards to intimidate morons.’

    ‘A word invented by anarchists and Marxists to flood Europe with Muslims.’

    There’s probably heaps more.

  • Huia

    She is also a close adviser of Obama’s, the White House has quite a lot of these type of agitators close to the Presidential seat.
    You can bet your life all that money has been going straight into the Muslim cause to instill fear and Sharia law in the USA.
    Thank goodness the Mayor cancelled the money handout. The powers that be need to be standing up and stating the factual reasons for this and not namby pamby around the facts.
    Incidentally where is the media outrage?

    • Johnno

      Well said about the lack of media outrage, Huia. We see the same lack of media outrage over the barbaric atrocities committed by ISIS, whereas the smallest action by Israel to defend their country and its people bring hordes of protestors to the streets.

    • biscuit barrel

      Where does it say she advises Obama . It seems that this person doesnt exist other than as a hoax

      • spanishbride

        You are right I was in error. I have removed it.

    • spanishbride

      I got it wrong. I’m sorry.

  • Duchess of Pork

    I’d love to see a Trump supporting Muslim woman front up to this hate-monger. The likelihood is slim I’ll admit but the reaction to a Muslim bigot wishing gang rape on a sister Muslim would be priceless especially if big brother was in tow.

    • spanishbride

      I made a mistake. Sorry.

      • Duchess of Pork

        Kudos for the apology. I often use Google images to verify authenticity of pictures but didn’t for this one so also accept culpability for being duped by a hoax.

    Just how important to check facts @spanishbride

    This is a lie, invented here: https://twitter.com/at_maggiemac/status/724674268374528001

    • spanishbride

      Thank you for pointing this out. I have updated the post and removed her photo and her name from the links to the article.It was not intentional I was totally taken in.

  • spanishbride

    I was wrong it was a hoax. I have removed the post.Sorry about that.
