Mo Ansar Exposed

Mo Ansar, the British Muslim commentator known for his regular television and radio appearances as the self-declared voice of moderate Islam, has been exposed as a fantasist. Three separate reports today reveal the truth about the Muslim Walter Mitty. 

Historian Jeremy Duns has been working on the Ansar story for weeks. Today he writes:

“Mo Ansar is far from moderate. He has some very immoderate views indeed, and is a devious charlatan to boot. With no serious base of expertise to draw on, he has created a media profile for himself built on sycophancy, evasion and deception. He has smeared perceived rivals, promoted extremist views and inflamed tensions. He may seem like a buffoon at times, but his ruthless pursuit of more airtime has been toxic.”

Journalist Milo Yiannopoulos has a forensic account of Ansar’s untruths:

“Ansar has fabricated an extraordinary number of jobs, lied about professional qualifications and invented work experience, causing distress and harm to many, misleading the public and most likely breaking the law. He has bullied ordinary members of the public, filed nonsense police reports and failed to declare taxable income… Ansar has also been revealed as the man behind at least one anonymous “sock-puppet” account on social media, through which he has supported his own opinions and even had conversations with himself in order to give the impression of support for his views. He also used the account to attack prominent media personalities, in order to raise his own profile.”

In this week’s Spectator Nick Cohen concludes:

“If producers dropped Mo Ansar, he would have nothing to fall back on. He would become what those who have felt the thrill of fame fear most: just another face in the street. Some minor celebrities respond to insecurity by being brittle and melancholic off camera. Others go on the attack. No one has experienced Ansar ‘s fury like the men who have threatened his career as an ‘opinion former’.”

The allegations are far too numerous to list on this blog so it is worth reading each of these reports in full. Given what we know know about Mo Ansar, it is difficult to see how television and radio producers can ever book him for a media appearance again…

    “He has some very immoderate views indeed”
    Newsflash Jeremy. Odds are, we all have some very immoderate views. They’re just hidden beneath a microscopic veneer of civility. Waiting in reserve, for fate to create the conditions where survival becomes the paramount incentive. Simply pose yourself a few pertinent ’impertinent’ questions, and shudder at the answers you give.

    When did our MSM inform us of the political situation for other EU “partners?
    For example Beppo Grillo, in the blink of an eye, seems to have caused a political tsunami in Italy.
    It could start to happen here too if voters have the courage of their convictions next week.
    Is it time contributors on here broadened our horizons to comment on the situations in other countries?

    Sloppy journalism from a new generation of graduates of Media Studies courses.Nobody checks anything anymore, takes the word of these so called experts as gospel.No indentures for journalists working on local papers to learn their trade.

    This piece on Sunny Hundal by Douglas Murray sums it up quite nicely:

    So this post about the fantasist Ansar gets a pathetic irrelevant comment from one of the UKIP brigade.

    It’s true! They’re single issue bores and they’ve got nothing to say on anything else. Actually not bores but hypocrites who complain that their great leader – Homer Simpson – is lied about and misrepresented, while misrepresenting something that Cameron said in opposition.

    “Walter Mitty.”
    Wasn’t he a fictional eponymous hero, who wandered around playing out pretend parts in a perpetual day-dream? Well, given that we are all prepared to invest total belief in the reality of an experience occurring inside a hermetically sealed enclosure. Only to recognise that illusion for what it really is, when we awake. How do we know we don’t also engage in a form of wakeful dreaming? When denied the higher level of consciousness needed, to expose the non-reality in parts of it? For example, the paradox that we all believe our personal ‘reality’ is the correct one. Yet every single one of those is different.

    I recall a story by Charlie Brooker, back when he was angry and funny rather than a member of the lefty commentariat as now.

    He was writing for a computer games magazine, and the BBC called him in to be interviewed on some state-of-the-industry thing. He admitted he went on quite pissed, and had no idea what he was talking about.

    These talking heads you see are just asinine padding. No research, no real insight, but as long as they tick the achingly correct lefty boxes the BBC will keep spunking them up on to our screens.

I told him if he had a sexual problem he should go down to his local private store and ask. By the way, another mudscum immigrant was convicted of sex crimes against English children yesterday, in Blackburn.

    The other is the ‘parroting’ of the latest political attack line.
    Newsnight had one last night, too busy pushing the pro immigration line to do ANY basic checks on the facts they were using as the basis for their headlining piece.
    Paxman [re-immigration from Rumania/Bulgaria] ” It has all turned out to be a pile of scaremongering though hasn’t it”
    Mark Reckless MP ‘”The whole hullabaloo today is based on the responses of five people ”
    Paxman ” five !!! ”

    At which point Paxman has a conversation rather than an inquiry.

    Either the BBC is too lazy to check a few facts , particularly the margin of error associated with statistics, or they don’t care. Either way it is not a news service, just a taxpayer funded platform for those who have something to gain.

    Sadly, I think the media will continue to go to him because he is such an easy person to get a hold of. He gives them what they want. He is a good speaker with a perfect English accent in a goofy little costume that gives him some sort of authenticity which provides a great visual on the television. He doesn’t appear to have any job whatsoever. All he appears to do is tweet all day. So, the media can call him up and know that he will be there immediately. And, frankly, the media gets a tad lazy. So, sadly, I think Mo will still be gracing TV sets and radio speakers. But any outlet that does use them is questionable to say the least. If you have a lying fraud on your station who is being peddled as a commenter or expert as some kind, it doesn’t look good. At the same time, although on social media, he has been outed as a fraud, it is hard to say if the average TV watcher who doesn’t engage with Mo online know about this controversy and as a result won’t question him. It will be interesting how this plays out, but I don’t think we have seen the end of Mo.
