A vote for Hillary Clinton for president would also be a vote for the Muslim Brotherhood, Saudi Arabia, Al-Qaeda and the complete destruction of the United States of America, a propaganda video circulating around conservative websites claims. The group behind the clip falsely claims that the link between Clinton and a global movement to destroy Western civilization is her top aide Huma Abedin, due to her “alarming connections,” to terrorists groups in the Middle East.
The video, which was uploaded to the frequently visited Youtube channel “Anonymous,” received over 4 million views since its publication just one week ago, and has made its way to several internet chat room supporting Donald Trump to become president.
Internet watchdog Snopes.com fact checked many of the accusations made by the makers of the video, finding that many of them were wildly false. The video circulated as Abedin, a U.S. –born Muslim of Indian and Pakistani decent, was in the news amid an FBI investigation that reopened a controversy over Clinton’s use of private emails as secretary of state. Officials found a connection between Clinton and Abedin’s husband, former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York, while investigating his sexting scandal involving an underage girl.
“There are no more excuses for Huma’s silence, she has had years of opportunities to distance herself from terrorists and radical views, but would rather simply hide,” says the video's narrator, “Especially when it was found that Huma was accessing Hillary Clinton’s emails and physical documents….and has access to top secret information and security clearances.”
The makers of the video repeatedly claim that the greatest indicator of Abedin’s guilt is her silence on her alleged associated with terror groups like Hamas and individuals such as Abdullah Omar Naseef, who they say was one of the conspirators in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorism attacks. The video claims that Abedin’s family business works hand in hand with Saudi Arabia’s Muslim World League, an organization that they also say was connected to the 9/11 attacks, citing that they share the same office building in London.
Snopes said Naseef, who is mentioned several times in the video as funding Al-Qaeda and the 9/11 attacks, was really a Saudi Arabian professor who authorized a Pakistani charity called Rabita Trust in 1988. While the charity fund became associated with al-Qaeda and was frozen by the U.S. Treasury Department in 2002, there has been no evidence linking Naseef to the terrorist operation.
The video claims the U.S. people deserve a “yes or no” answer to the “straightforward” question: “Did Abdullah Omar Naseef create your family business and were you working with him in any capacity on Sept. 11, 2001?”
“Clearly anyone can prove in seconds that Huma’s family business is owned by Saudi Arabian terrorists,” the narrator states. “You can no longer deny that Hillary Clinton is actively working a global movement to destroy Western civilization, just for the selfish benefit of money and power.”
