As I’ve noted repeatedly on this site, HRHSBotU [Her Royal Highness, Supreme Being of the Universe] Oprah Winfrey frequently uses her show to praise and whitewash Islam, yet she also repeatedly uses it as a forum to denigrate the far less threatening Christian polygamists who are Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints followers. Oprah’s view is this–Muslim polygamists who hate America and support terrorism: A-OK; Christian polygamists who aren’t bothering me and pose me no threat: Impending great American disaster.
The “reporter” HRHSBotU Oprah uses to give these reports, Lisa Ling, constantly does reports on the polygamy of these fundatmentalist Mormon separatists, but has yet to do a show on Muslim polygamy that exists in this country. (For example, Ali Jawad–the Hezbollah-supporting, convicted insurance defrauder Muslim I got John McCain to kick off of his campaign–apparently has two wives, his American one and the Shi’ite Muslim secretary he got pregnant and married under Islamic law, who now lives in Lebanon.) Ling also did a number of pandering pro-HAMAS interviews in Gaza and sympathetic interviews with other Palestinians who support homicide bombings. Then, Ling’s clueless representatives had the chutzpah to contact me, pretending she never did such things and was concerned about Islamic terrorism funding (she wasn’t).
Today, Oprah and Ling did another one of their “exposes” on the polygamous FLDS sect in Texas. Ling pointed out to Oprah that one FLDS polygamist said that we are no different from him–that we have multiple affairs with different people, and that they are being punished for sanctifying it with marriage.
To that, Oprah responded:
Yeah, I think we need to take a look at that. . . . I think he has a point there.
Great. Can’t wait ’til she and Lisa Ling do the show on Islamic polygamy, since she now thinks polygamy has a point.
Not holding my breath, though.
