Towards a Pro-America, Pro-West Foreign Policy

Media Lies: Trump and the Muslim Olympian

I noted previously that I have never seen such derangement by the media over a major party candidate. Leftist bias in the American press has existed for some time -- Walter Duranty, anybody? -- but the unbridled hatred for and willingness to say just about anything about a major  candidate by the main media outlets has a new scale now. Yes, the amp has gone to eleven.

I refer, of course, to the media's treatment of Trump. There is so much they are throwing at him that it's tough to decide what to examine. Since, however, we are in the Olympic season (Note: I wish the Olympics would go away) I have been drawn to stories about the, apparently, sole Muslim athlete on the US team, a female fencer by the name of Ibtihaj Muhammad. I don't know her at all. I had never heard of her until I saw her march out with the USA team in Rio. She might be a truly wonderful person and the world's greatest female fencer. I don't know, and for the purposes of this little post, I don't care. She has let herself either deliberately or inadvertently become a tool for the insane media overlords who pretend to tell us how to live and think.

The Washington Post--Of course!--carried a piece on her dated August 8--other outlets, e.g., the BBC and CNN, had similar items previously.
Ibtihaj Muhammad, the fencer who happens to also be the first American Muslim woman to compete in the Olympics while wearing a hijab, had strong words for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump about his immigration plans for Muslims. 
“I think his words are very dangerous,” Muhammad, who is competing in team sabre competition Monday morning, told CNN last week. “When these types of comments are made, no one thinks about how they really affect people. I’m African American. I don’t have another home to go to. My family was born here. I was born here. I’ve grown up in Jersey. All my family’s from Jersey. It’s like, well, where do we go?”
First, let me wipe away the tears blurring my vision. OK, now, let's go on. Let's start with Trump's "words are very dangerous." There you have it, folks. That summarizes progressive and Muslim thinking all in four little words. George Orwell must be laughing his head off. The rest of the article runs in a similar vein of setting up straw man opponents. Read it and you'll see. I am going to focus on the two little paragraphs I copied above.

Ibtihaj was born here. Congratulations, but when has Trump said "dangerous words" that would lead her or anybody else to think that he would deport Americans? That's a fake argument, and the WaPo knows it. She doesn't have another home; I see . . . you know who else? The million Jews expelled from Arab lands since 1948 by Ibtihaj's co-religionists. You know who else? The thousands upon thousands of Christians chased out of their ancestral homes or murdered by, you guessed it, Ibtihaj's co-relgionists. A little more awareness might be in order, Ibtihaj, if you're going to make pronouncements on politics and the world scene. That advice goes for the WaPo, too.

Let's not even talk about whether a candidate's words are more "dangerous" than Muslims crashing airliners into buildings, setting off car bombs in market places, beheading people on the beach, throwing gays off buildings, driving a giant truck through vacationers, shooting and torturing young people at a music concert, etc.

No, let's not talk about that.

Let's talk about words.

Yes, such as the words found in Hillary Clinton's private and unsecure email server that discussed Shahram Amiri, an Iranian nuclear scientist, who might have provided critical intel to the US. The man was hanged after Clinton and her aide discussed his case on unclassified email. Now those are some words that are dangerous, and dangerous, by the way, to a Muslim.

En garde, Ibtihaj.

  1. Mr. Nice Guy Romney wasn't treated much better by the media and pundits. IMO we wouldn't be in the fix we are in if Romney had been elected. Obama even said Romney wasn't C-in-C material as he just said about Trump. Yea, a President that wasn't ready for 9-11 in Benghazi or anywhere else doesn't think Republicans have enough knowledge or something to be President.

  2. I can already see the headlines. If she fails to medal or even better performs very poorly. The headlines will imply that it was the "hatred" in her own country that proved too burdensome for her to win. If she wins a medal, then she gets to be the next Khan. Either way we lose. Yeah, the game is rigged.

  3. Athletes are dancing monkeys, just like actors. If they're talking about the dancing, I'll lend some weight to what the have to say.

    Otherwise, dance or shut up!

  4. It's also worth pointing out that Trump didn't say he was going to throw Muslims already here out -- he said he was going to halt further immigration of Muslims until we figure out what is going on.

    This is typical mainstream media deceit.

  5. Well, when it comes to stupid contrived media hit pieces I just think back to the motivational words of Bill Murray:

  6. She lost. Obummer just played his 300th round of golf as president and revealed that he has "an honest" 13 handicap. Somehow, he has also neglected to mention the killing and persecution of Christians. Did Kafka write the script for this movie?

    1. Looking at his driving ability he might be a 13 from the red tees.

  8. "Obummer just played his 300th round of golf as president and revealed that he has "an honest" 13 handicap." That's a none-too-subtle dig at Slick Willie, isn't it?

  11. I'm beginning to see more references to Hillary's doubtful health.

    Do your old pals at State have any authoritative gossip on the subject?

    1. Yes dear, her "health" issues do become more newsy relative to revelations of her criminal complicity.
      Crooks like Hillarity, Shysters, and Judges too, know that taxpayers don't want to foot the bill, long term, for housing and maintaining a derelict and decrepit convict! In other words HRC is covering her ass, with a get outta jail card as BO probably won't be around to pardon her!

  13. Clinton's words? Clinton's words? But she's the Democrat. The Democrat is never the issue. The Republican is always the issue. And always dubious, at the beginning of the campaign, and evil by the end of it.

    How we live now.

  14. 1. "I’m African American."
    2. "My family was born here."

    Ok I'm a bit confused here. She claims she is "African American". She claims to have been born in the USA. So was she born in the USA or in some African country?

  15. The media are no friends with Trump, but Trump isn't a friend of himself either. It keeps getting worse :

  16. I used to follow Schindler but he has gone off the deep end recently. I suspect he is angling for a new media gig since he was unable to make inroads at Fox -- Seb Gorka seems to have become the resident counter terrorism expert. John got fired from the Naval War College in a sexting scandal...sending dick pics.

  17. Robert Marchenoir, you are pointing to a media report. This story is part of the media anti-trump storyline.

    In fact, Obama did in fatc create ISIS, indirectly with his troop withdrawal from Iraq or more directly with suplly of weapons.
