Taliban reportedly ‘worried about Andrew Tate’ after arrest
Having friends like these probably won’t help.
The Taliban are said to be worried about the fate of misogynistic influencer Andrew Tate as he faces prosecution in Romania for allegedly trafficking women and forcing them to appear in porn videos.
A former beauty queen dubbed “Wifey” by Tate has claimed she discussed his arrest and imprisonment with the Islamic extremists in charge of Afghanistan.
“They’re worried about Andrew Tate and they’re asking us if he’s still free,” former Miss New Jersey Sameera Khan said. tweeted Saturday. “They say Westerners need Andrew Tate because we are oppressed by feminists.”
Khan, a self-proclaimed ‘anti-revival journalist’, then posted a warning she received from Twitter that unidentified ‘people from Germany’ had filed a complaint about her tweet through Network Enforcement. Act.
“This whole website is full of p*ssies,” she complained.
Khan is a staunch supporter of Tate, 36, who has been called a ‘king of toxic masculinity’ and a ‘dangerous misogynist’ for his controversial comments, including saying women should ‘take some responsibility’ for having been raped.
Last month, Khan wrote that she will ‘continue to defend’ Tate – ‘especially knowing how much it triggers leftists’.
Tate retweeted the postadding in response, “Wifey.”
Khan resigned as Washington correspondent for Russian cable television network RT America in 2018 after she came under fire for tweets in which she defended prison camps run by the late Russian dictator Joseph Stalin.
RT America shut down in March after DirecTV stopped airing it in response to Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.
Khan’s Telegram channel, which has around 1,200 subscribers, promises “Woke Imperium News Updates” and features the hashtag “MAGASTALIBANISM”.
The Taliban have been widely condemned for brutally oppressing Afghan women and recently reinstated the requirement for them to wear full-body coverings called burqas.
The group also gave refuge to al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, but was driven from power by the US invasion following the September 11 attacks.
Then-President Donald Trump reached a peace deal with the Taliban in February 2020, which led to President Biden ordering the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan in August 2021.
But the end of America’s longest war was accompanied by chaos and violence, including a suicide bombing at Kabul airport, killing 13 American soldiers and up to 170 civilians.
The botched exit caused Biden’s jobs approval rating to plummet, from which he has yet to recover.
