Many readers are asking me about “All-American Muslim,” the faux-reality show airing on TLC, beginning on Sunday Night. Those readers must have missed my column about this show back in July, and I urge you to read it.
Ditto for Ayatollah Khomeini, the man behind the kidnapping of U.S. hostages in Tehran for 444 days, who is a revered figure in that community. Khomeini, as I pointed out, was celebrated just months ago in this same Shi’ite Muslim community, with posters in the markets and a banquet celebrating his birthday. You won’t see that on “All-American Muslim,” either, because it isn’t exactly “All-American” . . . until Shi’ite Muslims take over.
The tagline for this show is, “One Nation, Under Suspicion.” But shouldn’t a group of people who call themselves “Americans,” indeed, be under suspicion if they openly support–and refuse to condemn–a major terrorist group that murders Americans and the leader of a fundamentalist theocracy that took Americans hostage?
Sadly, they aren’t, in fact, under suspicion at all. In fact, after 9/11, we bent over backward–and forward–further for these terrorism supporters. And that’s something that this show–with a clear agenda of sympathy for extremists–will never show. It’s nothing more than a whitewash and blatant propaganda. You won’t see, for example, Lila Alcodray Amen, one of the mom figures on the show, using Dearborn Public Schools e-mail to campaign for Muslim Ismael Ahmed for political office, a violation of the law. But she did, and I have the e-mail to prove it. The thing is, they get away with what we can’t. They are not “under suspicion, ” but instead deemed “beyond suspicion.”
Again, read my July column on some of the characters involved in “All-American Muslim.” They are as “All-American” as John Walker Lind, Adam Gadahn Al-Amriki, and Nidal Malik Hasan: American by Birth, Terrorism Supporters by Choice.
