One of those who have been stirring the racial and religious grievance pot in Ferguson, Missouri, USA has been shown to be a known child molester. I don’t know about you but it’s getting to the stage that wherever I look in the world I find that the word ‘Muslim’ is so often seen together with the word ‘nonce’.
The apparently conservative leaning investigative journalism site Got News, has revealed that Mustafa Hussain AKA Theodore Barrett is a nonce who sexually attacked a girl of 13 or under.
Got News said:
A Muslim media darling during the Ferguson protests is a convicted child molester, GotNews.com has learned.
Mustafa Hussein is a volunteer for ArgusRadio, a popular activist website that live streams the St. Louis race riots and Ferguson protests.
He’s continuing to cause trouble now, like staging a protest at the St. Louis Cardinals game.
Hussein a.k.a. Theodore Barrett was previously convicted of child molestation in Iowa. His victim was under the age of 13.
Hussein’s website got 1.3 million views in just one night during the Ferguson protests.
He has been the subject of fawning, gushing profiles by NPR, Washington Post, Huffington Post, MSNBC, Bloomberg, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The Got News side added:
Hussein has claimed that he was harassed by the police as he was filming the Ferguson race riots.
None other than the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is suing on Hussein’s behalf.
The ACLU suit asked a judge to end the police policy of “demanding and ordering members of the media and public to stop recording the police acting in their official duty on public streets and sidewalks” and declare such a policy a violation of constitutional rights.
The Leftist media seem to have overlooked the background of Hussain and are handling him in an extremely uncritical way.
The Got News site has other examples of MSM/Leftist commentators and journalists giving Hussain a bit of a free ride over the race riots in Ferguson. You can read the rest of the Got News article via the link below
The Leftist media have either let their own ideology blind them to facts, or have forgotten a basic journalistic principle which is to have some idea about who you are quoting and who you are claiming as a legitimate source. The mainstream media writers and commentators who have been lauding Hussain do not appear to have done any checking on the background of him, or his motivations whatsoever. If they had they may have been less keen to make Hussain a ‘media darling’.
