Haaris Khan is a complete jackass: Student investigated for hateful tweets
Canada (via Instapundit):
The McGill administration is currently investigating Haaris Khan, a McGill student who, using Twitter, threatened to shoot a roomful of other students last week at a campus film screening.
Khan made the threats at a screening of “Indoctrinate U,” a documentary, on March 8 hosted by Conservative McGill and Libertarian McGill. “I want to shoot everyone in this room,” he tweeted at one point during the film, adding, “I should have brought an M16.”
“I’ve infiltrated a Zionist meeting,” Khan wrote in his first tweet, at 6:04 p.m., shortly after the event began. “I feel like I’m at a Satanist ritual.”
“Oh man, a Muslim girl just appeared,” he wrote in his next post. “I thought, like me, she’s a freedom fighter. Unfortunately, she’s a co-conspirator. Traitor.”
About half an hour into the screening, Khan’s tweets turned violent.
“My blood is boiling,” he wrote at 6:38 p.m. “I want to shoot everyone in this room. I’m frightened, alarmed, and downright pissed. Never been this angry.”
“This experience has hardened me into a soldier for freedom and truth,” Khan wrote about an hour later.
The next day he tweeted
The jihad begins today.
When turned in by, he said he didn’t mean any of it and he was just funning around. And that his sister-in-law is Jewish so he doesn’t even dislike Jews or anything. He isn’t terribly religious and claims not to have “much attachment to Islam.”
His texts, he claims, were “taken out of context.”
We’re just waiting to hear about the correct context that makes wanting to shoot up a room full of people with an automatic weapon okay.
