First there was a media coverup of the Twin Falls five-year-old who allegedly was stripped naked, sexually assaulted and urinated on by three Muslim boys, age 14, 10, & 7. Now Obama’s US Attorney in Idaho, Wendy J. Olson, is threatening to prosecute anyone who spreads “false or inflammatory information” about the Muslim refugee perps.
WND The boys accused are ages 14, 10 and 7, and their families have been evicted from the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls, where the assault allegedly took place.
The two older boys are immigrants from Sudan and the youngest is from Iraq. They are believed to be refugees but the government has yet to say exactly how they entered the country, only that they have come “within the last two years.”
(The Left Wing Media tried to dismiss the story because it was reported by some bloggers that the attackers were Syrian Muslim refugees, when in fact, they were Sudanese and Iraqi Muslim refugees. Big deal.)
The Olson statement that is drawing fire from First Amendment advocates is as follows:
“The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law.”
She made the comment after some websites published erroneous information that the girl was “gang raped” at “knifepoint” by “Syrian refugees.” While the boys likely are Muslim refugees, they are not Syrian. No knife was found at the crime scene. While the girl may indeed have been “raped” – as reports of one boy urinating inside her mouth have yet to be debunked – she was not “gang-raped.”
First amendment attorneys contacted by WND left nothing to the imagination in their sweeping condemnation of the Idaho U.S. attorney appointed by Obama in 2010.
“Ms. Olson’s not-so-veiled threat is closer to illegal speech by a government official than the speech she threatens,” said David Yerushalmi, who has represented Pamela Geller and other prominent activists. “But this abuse of government power is no surprise coming from the political hacks this president has appointed in the U.S. attorneys’ offices.”
He said Attorney General Loretta Lynch is the latest example, for her threats to prosecute free speech critical of Islam after the jihad attack on San Bernardino in December.
Daniel Horowitz, who represents WND on First Amendment issues, went one step further. He suggested Olson’s words, insinuated that “false or inflammatory” speech could get an American citizen arrested, consisted of a terroristic threat.
“Wendy Olson should be arrested for making terrorist threats against American citizens,” Horowitz said. “She has abused her position and threatened to use the power of the United States government to punish citizens in the exercise of their constitutional rights.
“She is a criminal terrorist who silences Americans through threats of arrest just as violent terrorists seek to silence us by threats of murder. She should lose her job and be jailed and when Trump builds his wall, her prison work gang should help build it.”
