The Huffington Post prides itself on being a progressive and pro-feminist “news” outlet, so when it came to light that a teenage Syrian refugee columnist who writes for their German website made egregious comments on his Twitter account, namely blaming women for last year’s New Year’s Eve sex attacks in Germany, the Huffington Post has practically remained mum on the issue.

Raheem Kassambacho at Breitbart reports Aras Bacho (pictured) is the 18- year-old Huffington Post columnist that tweeted the ridiculous claim, writing:, tweeted that women should not be out alone at night.

 “Most of the time the women are to blame. To be alone at night. On the other hand, the refugees should behave”.

He tagged the tweet “Silvester” or “New Year’s” in German.

Daran sind meistens die Frauen schuld. Nachts alleine zu sein. Andrerseits sollten sich die Flüchtlinge benehmen. #Silvester — Aras Bacho (@ArasBacho) December 12, 2016

One would think a liberal news outlet such as the Huffington Post would quickly dispose of anyone who would make such a preposterous claim – you know…because they are so “pro-feminist” – but that doesn’t appear to be the case.  His tweet verified on his twitter account, Bacho filed a story with the Huffington Post five days after the tweet.

Fortunately many Twitter followers and users responded with outrage and disgust, one tweeting:  “In this country, women have the right to be alone at night! Migrants have a duty to behave!”

Kassam noted: “Mr. Bacho’s tweet came just as Breitbart London revealed that out of 1300 reported sex attacks on New Year’s Eve in Cologne alone, only 18 convictions have been made so far.” Where are the feminists on that social-justice cause?

It’s not the first time Bacho has caused a stir with something his writing.  Back in October he demanded all signage in Germany should be translated into Arabic, and he used his Huffington Post columns to push the German people to not only provide more policing and money for the refugees, but also German sponsored smartphones .

Apparently Mr. Bacho has never heard of the phrase, “beggars can’t be choosers.”  Maybe someone could translate that into Arabic for him.
