Jacob Wohl, Certified Twitter Asshole, Sent Death Threats To Himself

[TRIGGER WARNING: ISLAMOPHOBIA]

This is another thing you might have already heard about but how can I not blog about this? Well-known right-wing white supremacist, misogynist, and all-around big opinion-haver Jacob Wohl was recently kicked the fuck off Twitter for running fake accounts that he used to argue with himself. But that wasn't the best news.

Jacob Wohl Faked Death Threats Against Himself

Wohl and fellow provocateur Laura Loomer went to Minneapolis last month to “investigate” whether their quest to prove that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) married her own brother—a charge based on flimsy blog comments that has been disproven. 
Wohl’s videos to his fans were premised on the idea that Minneapolis is an incredibly dangerous place, and often featured him wearing a bulletproof vest. At one point in a new video about their trip, Wohl goes to a Minneapolis police station to report death threats he says he and his team have received since being in the city.

First of all, that is some rank Islamophobia. Second, really? Minneapolis? You were so scared going to Minneapolis that you wore a fucking bulletproof vest? What a wuss.

Thirdly, it turns out this "death threat" was sent by one of the fake accounts Wohl was banned for. So, he's going to get charged for filing a fake police report, right?

I can't tell you how vindicating this is as a vocal woman on the internet who has been sent real harassing and threatening messages and read countless accounts from other women about the most frightening and disgusting messages including explicit and detail rape and death threats only to be told by asshole dudes without evidence that they're definitely faked. First they demand evidence from us, and when we do oblige and provide screenshots of the messages, guess what they say next?

We must have sent those to ourselves. You know, for attention.

Have you ever heard about the defense mechanism known as projection? It's rampant among the right.

Any time I see some misogynistic fuck try to claim that a woman sent harassing messages to herself, I'm bringing this right up. It's also going to be so much nicer on Twitter without Jacob Wohl stinking it up with his shitty opinions.

Now ban Trump.
