ABC News’ “Nightline” did an extensive report on that all-important news story of the day–the one-woman economy of Britney Spears.
But what struck me is that the “one-woman economy” has multiple beneficiaries, many of whom are Muslim foreign aliens from Britain. What are they doing here? And how did they get visas and green cards? I’ve already told you about Spears’ Muslim manager Osama “Sam” Lutfi and photog-turned-kept-boyfriend, Pakistani Muslim Adnan Ghalib. But now there’s another dude in the picture–Sheeraz Hasan, who mysteriously came here from Britain.
What is his immigration status? Why is he here? Do we issue special talent visas for paparazzi and website operators, because this is “the work Americans won’t do”? Hasan, a devout Muslim, got the idea for a Britney Spears paparazzi website while on the Muslim Hajj [pilgrimage] to Mecca. When you click on his site, where are the profits going? Are you helping to contribute to Islamic “charities” and terrorist groups? Don’t be surprised if you are:
Hollywood.tv was founded by Sheeraz Hasan, who came to the United States from London, where he was running a restaurant with his family. Hasan always wanted to be a part of Hollywood, so he moved to Los Angeles. He says he found the key to his success during a pilgrimage on a mountaintop in Saudi Arabia.
‘God Showed Me Britney Spears’
“I went to go get a drink and all of a sudden, I just look up and I see Britney in a magazine. So I think to myself, wait a minute. I’m here on pilgrimage. What the hell is Britney doing here? Of all places. God showed me Britney Spears,” Hasan said. “I said to myself, OK, I’m going to go back to Hollywood, Hollywood.tv. I’m going to get the stars. I’m going to get all the stars, but also my main person I’m going to get is Britney Spears.” . . .
The business model for Hollywood.tv is unique. Sheeraz says that he spends about $50,000 a month on Britney coverage but gives away the content for free. It’s all about building the brand. The ultimate plan: Take the company public.
“Obviously you make money on revenue from advertising. I have partnerships with Google and YouTube,” Hasan said. “But for us, what’s more important is building the billion-dollar brand online. We’re already in negotiations with a couple of major studios to buy us out. And we’ve only been doing this for nearly six months. We have a brand that’s recognized to the entire world. In order for them to beat our brand, they would have to go to the Hollywood sign and take those letters off the Hollywood sign and put their brand on, because that’s who they’re competing with.”
So, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), why is Sheeraz Hasan in America? What is his immigration status? And when will you send him back?
Do we really have a shortage of extremist Muslims from Britain that we need to import more for the profligation of more brands in the Trashy-Former-Teen-Hussy-Goes-Whackjob Britney Spears industry?
And, if you click onto his site, are you helping Hasan contribute to Islamic jihads worldwide? It’s not a stretch to assume that you are.
