  Celebrity rapper posts lies about me

Rapper calls me a racist

Rapper never heard of the term "classic liberal"

The dumbest man on the Internet

Talib Kweli

I never heard of the celebrity American rapper Talib Kweli before he started tweeting lies about me to his 1 million followers in Sept 2016.

Complaining about the lies led to a stream of new lies. This guy is truly one of the craziest people I have ever come across on Twitter. It is hard to believe this person is real.

Other people have spotted how this guy operates.

Celebrity rapper posts lies about me

My adventure with this loony started here on 5 Sept 2016, when someone sent him a screenshot of my page: Opinion Polls in the Islamic world.
He did not respond well.

Kweli does not deal with the issue of the opinion polls.
Instead, some idiot Googling leads him to the sad lies of Qasim Afridi about me.
Afridi claims I support the Norwegian killer Breivik. Of course, in reality I think Breivik is a terrorist who should get the death penalty.
Kweli reposts Afridi's lies and calls me a "racist".

I found the above, replied, and then things got really crazy.


Rapper calls me a racist

In response to the above, Kweli issued a flood of crazy insults and libels against me. Endless abuse instead of logical argument.

All he says is basically: "You're a racist!" It's his only argument.


More or less every crazy tweet calls me a "white supremacist".
So we can capture them all in a single search.

Rapper never heard of the term "classic liberal"

The rapper managed to read my one-line bio, which seems to be the longest thing he's read this year.

And he made a fool out of himself when he came across my self-description as a "classic liberal". It turns out he never heard of the term.

Celebrity makes fool of himself because he is too lazy to Google "classic liberal".
He carries on tweeting about this, unaware of his ignorance.

If the ignorant fellow actually looked at the Wikipedia entry for "classic liberal", he might learn something.

Rapper says that regarding democracies as superior to non-democracies is racist.


The dumbest man on the Internet

In other threads, Kweli reveals his incredible, jaw-droppingly stupid ideas.

He actually says that it is bigoted to criticise Islam more than Christianity.
Independent of what the religions are doing!
Based purely on skin colour!
(Or at least skin colour as perceived by an ignoramus. The reality may be different.)

He actually says that it is wrong for non-Muslims to call for Islamic reform. They should just shut up!
But apparently it's ok for non-whites to criticise whites and call for reform. And it's ok for non-police to criticise the police and call for reform. And it's ok for non-Israelis to criticise Israel and call for reform. And so on. Very strange.
Surely by Kweli's rules, only white supremacists can criticise white supremacists?

American rap artist actually tells an Iranian atheist that he has no right to criticise Islam.

How Talib Kweli debates.
It beats reading!

From here.

The hilarious Gavin McInnes got the same Talib Kweli treatment in 2017, and amusingly replies above.
Again and again, Kweli calls him a "Nazi". Again and again, Kweli presents no evidence. Deranged screenshots of things Kweli misunderstood. Endless strawmen and replies to statements that were not made. And the same conclusion to everything: "You are a Nazi".
McInnes takes it all apart with good humour.

Israel-hater Talib Kweli dismisses someone who says Israeli Muslims are well treated.
"When an actual Israeli Muslim tells me this I may listen. You're not one. Shut the fuck Up", he says.
And then an actual Israeli Muslim arrives on the thread to say it is true!

Disgusting liar Talib Kweli eventually got banned from Twitter after one libel too far in 2020.
Good riddance to the prick.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
