When you think of “Moms Around the World,” do you think of global warming and how Egypt is so attentive to children with Down’s Syndrome? Oprah does.
Better yet, when you think of Egypt, do you think of the country of the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda’s Ayman Al-Zawahiri and Mohammed Atta, and some of the most extremist, anti-Semitic newspapers and universities in the world? Oprah doesn’t.
Yesterday, HRHSBotU (Her Royal Highness Supreme Being of the Universe) Queen Oprah did a show of “Moms Around the World.” Needless to say, if it’s on the Oprah show, that means it really doesn’t represent Moms Around the World.
The part about the Eskimo woman from Alaska was interesting enough, so long as the woman didn’t mind being laughed at and examined like an exhibit from the Ripley’s museum. But it degraded when Oprah concluded the segment by asking the Eskimo woman, “And so, can you see signs of global warming?” This was all pre-planned because the Oprah crew shot film, ostensibly, of an Eskimo city on the water.
The Eskimo-ette–now apparently a scientist–eagerly answered, “Yes, I can see it because the town nearby–they live right on the water. And the waves are crashing into their neighborhood. And soon they are going to have to move.” Roll tape. We’re shown waves crashing. Then we see streets flooded. We have no idea where this footage comes from. And the Oprah show has already been caught using fake footage.
Then, Oprah tells us, “That’s why I recommend everyone see ‘An Inconvenient Truth’. It’s by Al Gore, and it shows us that soon Manhattan and Los Angeles will be under water.” Thanks, Oprah, for this Moms Around the World as brought to you by the Environmental Liberation Front.
Then, there’s Egypt. In all of her “[Blank] Around the World” shows (Women Around the World; Moms Around the World; etc.), Oprah always picks a Muslim country or two to glorify for a tiny thing, while ignoring the extremism and Islamism that dominates every day life. In the “Moms” show, it was Egypt.
So, what were we shown about Egyptian moms? Not that they teach their kids to hate the Egyptian Jews that were banished from the country and the Christian Copts, who might soon be banished. Nope. Not that many of Egypt’s Moms voted for the terrorist group Muslim Brotherhood in the most recent Egyptian elections. Not that many of them read the anti-Semitic, anti-American Al-Ahram newspaper or send their kids to similarly inclined Al-Azar University.
No, that’s not what you’ll ever see on the Oprah show. Instead, we saw how Egyptian moms fought for and got the government to provide a generous mainstreaming setting for all Egyptian kids with Down’s Syndrome. Yup, that’s the true Egypt. Thanks, HOprah.
We can’t wait for Oprah’s show on the Palestinian moms. Don’t expect to see Um Nidal a/k/a Miriam Farahat on that one. That wouldn’t fit in with the Oprah Sanitization of Islamofascisti Project.
And finally, Oprah showed us a mother who was a rape victim of the Sudanese government gangs, the janjaweed. Of course, she was Muslim. Because now, Oprah is so interested in this issue, now that the Muslim Arab government janjaweed raped, murdered, and tortured all of Sudan’s Christians. At that time, Oprah wasn’t interested, saying the issue was “too complicated.” Seems less complicated now for Oprah, now that it’s no longer Arab Muslims attacking Black Christians. Now that it’s Muslim against Muslim, it is okay for Queen Oprah.
Oprah lectured her audience that the Sudanese mother “wants her to have the same things that you want for your kids, the same life that you want for your kids.” Really? What about the Christian Sudanese mothers, when you–Queen Oprah–didn’t give a damn? Didn’t they want the same things as the Muslim mom?
