This one is leftover from yesterday’s Detroit Newsistan coverage of Memorial Day. In the paper’s choice of photos for its “Fallen Soldiers Gone, But Not Forgotten” feature, it’s clear what they want to overwhelm us with, regarding a certain religion and American patriotism. In Tuesday’s paper, a much larger version of the pic is posted well above that of Holly McGeough, a 19-year-old Detroit-area soldier, killed in Iraq by a terrorist IED.
The paper even tries very hard with regard to the caption:
Hakimah Saeed of Dearborn holds her son Hamza, 3, who is intrigued by an American flag Monday at the Memorial Day parade in Dearborn.
“Intrigued?” Not exactly. Unfortunately, for them, it doesn’t really convey their message to us. A picture speaks a thousand words. And this picture speaks of a prop and a pose. Nothing more. Question: Is the flag Halal? Answer: As long as the flag stands for our soldiers dying over there, while we let them take over, over here.
Reminds me of the time right after 9/11 when the most pan-terrorist Muslims in town would put American flags in their storefront windows. Anything to fool Americans. Taqiyyah, baby.
