The Internet Is Parodying #WaPoDeathNotices After The Washington Post Called ISIS leader Al-Baghdadi An ‘Austere Religious Scholar’

October 29, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Story |

The Washington Post changed the headline of its obituary for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the ISIS terror leader who was killed in a U.S. raid in Syria over the weekend, after receiving widespread backlash for referring to him as an “austere religious scholar.”

The original headline, posted online after President Trump announced al-Baghdadi’s killing, read: “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islamic State’s ‘terrorist-in-chief,’ dies at 48.” It was later changed to “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.”

It now reads: “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, extremist leader of Islamic State, dies at 48.”

It was unclear why or who decided to change the “terrorist” label to “austere religious scholar.”

The internet responded by doing what it does best, started a Twitter hashtag and began trolling the ISIS writers from WaPo.

Transgender cyclist Rachel McKinnon won her second women’s cycling championship last weekend.

The 37-year-old Canadian first set a world record in qualifying for the 35-39 age category 200-meter sprint, then went on to defend her title in the finals at the Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester, England.

Her success, however, has been criticized by her frustrated competitors.

In an interview with Sky News, former cycling champion Victoria Hood said, “It is not complicated. The science is there and it says that it is unfair. The male body, which has been through male puberty, still retains its advantage; that doesn’t go away. I have sympathy with them. They have the right to do sport but not a right to go into any category they want.”
