**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
Like most normal people, I’m an opponent of polygamy.
But, as I’ve written before, the media in this country, have an incongruous concern and obsession with Christian polygamy (mostly radical offshoots from Mormonism, which long ago outlawed polygamy), while they think Muslim polygamy is just fine–Al-Grrrl Power. We all know about the HBO show “Big Love.” But there’s no show about “Big Jihadi Baby Machine Non-Love.”
Today on Oprah, HRHSBotU [Her Royal Highness Supreme Being of the Universe] Oprah and her pro-HAMAS reporterette, Lisa Ling, spent the whole hour on the horrors of Christian polygamy. Ling said, “I really felt like we were in Iran.” But we heard not a peep about Iran or the rest of the Muslim world, where polygamy and temporary marriages to women for the purpose of sex are commonplace.
Nope. Instead, we heard Oprah tell a Christian man who has three wives that people are upset by this because of the allegations of underage marriage, child abuse, and forced marriage.
Um, are these not symptoms of Muslim polygamy (and even Muslim monagamy)? They are, indeed, and I’ve repeatedly written about all of them. There’s a reason that many Muslim girls are suddenly missing from British elementary schools. And it’s not because they’ve been sent away for forced marriages to Mormons or any kind of Christian.
How many Christians are in polygamous marriages versus millions of Muslims in such relationship, worldwide?
The Oprah episode was deceptively titled, “Polygamy in America.” But there’s plenty of polygamy by Muslims in America, and yet, we didn’t see anything about the multiple wives of men in Dearborn, Minneapolis, etc. Last time I checked those were part of America, er . . . supposed to be part of America.
Why aren’t the latter ridiculed and excoriated by Oprah and Lisa Ling?
We know why: Because, as I’ve documented extensively, Oprah is a vital part of the pan-Islamist propaganda machine.
But this should be instructive to you about Oprah. She holds out this very minor segment of Christianity out to the world (her show airs globally, including in Saudi Arabia) as representative of American Christianity, when we all know that there is only one religion where polygamy is representative.
Hint: It starts with an I, ends with an M, and has an S-L-A in the middle.
When will we see an Oprah show dedicated to the evils of Islamic polygamy?
Oh, yeah . . . NEVER.
**** UPDATE: Reader Barry Popik writes:
How does Oprah do a show called “Polygamy in America” and not show Muslims? No mention of Barack Obama’s polygamist father?
What a dishonest SOB!
Exactly. Only in her case, it’s a dishonest “DOB” . . . we think. But only her doctor and Gail King know for sure.
