On Wednesday morning, many of us woke up to find that Donald Trump had spent the morning retweeting Islamophobic videos originally tweeted by Jayda Fransen, leader of the far-right Britain First Party. The videos claimed to show a Muslim man destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary, an “Islamist mob” pushing a kid off of a roof, and a Muslim boy beating up a Dutch boy on crutches. The videos were unverified and shared without any sources; the third video was later found to be a video of two Dutch boys — the “Muslim boy” just happened to be a Dutch kid with dark hair contrasted to the boy on crutches who had blond hair.
This morning, a Twitter account called @British_First started tweeting similarly bogus videos at Donald Trump. In one, a “Muslim-trained pigeon hurls man on to train track.” This is clearly what is happening in this video. Other videos include an illegal immigrant’s dog tripping a man into falling into the ocean, and a man smoking his face off a road sign “booby-trapped by Muslim gang [to floor] patriot.” Again, all very real videos with accurate and honest descriptions of what is happening in them.
Donald Trump, if you’re reading this, definitely retweet these videos.
