Why Can’t Talib Kweli Read?

by Justin antitheist

On Aug 20, 2016, Talib Kweli tweeted “Here’s why MLK don’t condemn riots.” with a meme containing a MLK quote in which MLK condemns riots. As Godless Spellchecker noted a few days ago, Talib seems to have “catastrophic reading failures” (see the link below).

Both Lalo Dagach and myself reprimanded Talib for propagating this reckless and irresponsible tweet to his followers. Talib tweeted Lalo and got whipped. Talib tweeted me and got scolded.

I found out he was famous a week later (a few days ago). That would explain why I receive endless angry tweets from Talib’s followers.

As I show in my video, Talib accusses everyone of white supremacy, including Sam Harris, Maajid Nawaz, Tarek Fateh, Ben Carson, neurosurgeons, and lots more.

Here’s my point – It’s reckless and irresponsible to try to legitimize rioting by claiming that Martin Luther King did not condemn rots. As I demonstrate in this video, Martin Luther King very clearly condemned riots up to his last speech one day before he died. Talib never corrected retracted his lies. The tweets are all still there (see the links below)

There is an excellent article by author Michael A. Sherlock about his little Twitter war with Talib, the link is in the description below I highly recommend it. Sherlock shows you how Talib thinks that criticism of a particular religion is racist. Islam is not a race and a religion is just a human-made construction. Someone please tell this moron how to think. So, yeah he’s one of those people who do not understand or acknowledge that Muslims are not a race, that criticisms of a religion is not racist and he’s one of those people who are fine with criticisms of other religions, but freak out over criticisms of Islam. Reading the article it becomes apparent that Talib is one of those people who get too emotional to think rationally and too angry to understand what he is reading. Just as he misunderstood Dr. King and got angry when we told him so, he misunderstands Sherlock’s tweets.

Then there’s a new article by Stephen Knight on the Godless Spellchecker blog, that detail a twitter argument between Talib and Maajid Nawaz in which Talib is just so ignorant, and between Talib and Stephen Knight. Apparently non Muslims are not allowed to criticize Islam. But, if you’re a Muslim, as is Maajid Nawaz, you still aren’t allowed to criticize Islam. But seriously folks, that ignorant and bigoted stuff that Talib tweeted at Maajid is shameful, but at least it’s so ignorant its funny.

See the links below.

I am going to make a prediction. I predict that Talib Kweli will make the news more and more for his ignorance and mean-spirited nature. He’s going to freak out, inflate, blow up publicly and be deflated. He’s going to get worse, the media will make a story out of it, he’ll react to that and get worse still and he’s going to shoot himself in the foot and do something so stupid, it will end his career. So Tabatha, how shall we end this video?

If I’m wrong about this quote @TalibKweli, you’re welcome to look it up and call me wrong. Let’s see if you got the balls.

(In the above tweet, Lalo is referring to a quote he tweeted on 5:41 PM – 14 Aug 2016 which included a MLK quote; “”I’ve been searching for a long time for an alternative to #riots & I think that is found in militant massive non-violence.” -MLK #Milwaukee “ https://twitter.com/LaloDagach/status/764985268344655872 )

You obviously never read that whole MLK speech. I doubt you’ve ever read anything. @TalibKweli

@TalibKweli Only a person with poor reading skills and/or low intelligence would misinterpret Dr. King’s message as advocating riots, fool.

@TalibKweli You should have written “doesn’t” rather than “don’t”. Become more literate, please.

@TalibKweli “It is not enough for me to X” means that he does X. Get it yet?

@plantmanvegan1 @goosegill @TalibKweli When he says it is not enough for him to condemn the riots that means he condemns riots.

Damian Case ‏@Damian_Case

@TalibKweli “it is not enough for me to stand before you and condemn the riots” means that he condemns the riots. Get it yet?
