Reporter Hopes McCain Daughter “Reverts Back” to Islam; Hides Tweets From Schlussel

By Debbie Schlussel

**** UPDATE: Detroit Free Press Muslim Reporter Niraj Warikoo, under fire from Schlussel, hides his Twitter account . . . AGAIN. Yup, as a result of this column, Warikoo made his Twitter account private, once again. What are you hiding, Niraj? Um, doesn’t the public have a “right to know”? ****

In honor of the start of Ramadan, I bring you this story about cowardly Muslim Detroit Free Press “reporter” and propagandist, Niraj Warikoo.

Detroit Free Press “Reporter” Niraj Warikoo’s Twitter Pic @ Mosque

As you know, recently, it came out that there was a “Journo-List,” a secret list-serve on which major mainstream media reporters discussed ways to help Barack Obama get elected and avoid critical stories and questioning about topics like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Well, there’s also an informal “Islamo-Journo-List,” in which reporters who are Muslim do what they can to propagandize for Islam.  No, it’s not organized.  It’s called Islam.  And Warikoo is the star IslamoJournoList.  As I’ve noted in the past, Warikoo wrote campaign literature for Muslim candidates in Dearbornistan, whom he also covered for the Detroit Free Press.  And the Freep allows him to cover not only the Islamic community, but also the Jewish community.  Yes, a Muslim extremist is the ideal “objective” reporter to cover these issues, right?  Niraj Warikoo is supposed to be the paper’s “religion reporter” (though his “reporting” actually goes far beyond that into Mid-East issues, politics, etc.).  But how on earth can an open proselytizer for Islam be an objective religion reporter?  He isn’t.

And, as I told you in the past, I caught Warikoo reporting as “fact” the unproven allegations a Palestinian Muslim woman made, claiming the Israelis shot her grandfather three times to force him to leave his home and go to Jordan.  There’s no record or documentation of it.  The Freep, after my insistence and your contact at my request, begrudgingly corrected the article.

Now, there’s Warikoo’s Twitter account.  He recently made it private, after he thought I might be checking (and I was) and probably tried to erase some of his many offensive Islamo-cheerleading tweets.  The account appears to be public again and chock-filled with FOUR! tweets promoting a recent speech at a Detroit area mosque by self-hating extremist Jew, anti-Semite, Israel-hater, and guest of Ahmadinejad, Norman Finkelstein.   Warikoo–the “objective” reporter who identifies himself on his Twitter page as a Detroit Free Press reporter–wished for Bridget McCain, John McCain’s adopted daughter from Bangladesh, to “revert back to Islam.”  That’s obnoxious and offensive, especially since the guy is supposed to be an objective reporter.  But he’s not, just an advocate and propagandist for Islam.

Warikoo wrote the tweet in response to his anger over Newt Gingrich’s opposition to the Ground Zero mosque (you know my views on Gingrich’s phoniness on this).  And Warikoo claimed that Bangladesh is “a good example of tolerant islam [sic],” a  country that we should reach out to.  Yup, soooooo tolerant that the Bangladeshi government is putting our courageous Muslim friend and journalist, Weekly Blitz editor Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, on trial there for the “crime” of supporting Israel and urging Muslims to make peace with the Jews.  The government is demanding the death penalty for this.

Anyway, when Warikoo tweeted about Gingrich and the Ground Zero mosque and made the allegation that Republicans are making Islam their top election issue in November, one of his Twitter followers responded with an attack on me.

Warikoo realized that I might see his openly pro-Muslim and anti-conservative Republican tweets and expose him (not that this would matter at the Detroit Free Press for Islamo-advocating is the same as “objective journalism”).  And he made his Twitter account private for a while, deleting who knows what offensive and/or pan-Muslim Tweets.  When he thought the coast was clear and I wouldn’t notice, he made it public again.

We copied the relevant tweets. (Thanks to the JIDF for its help in this.)  And posted them here.

By the way, Niraj, you can follow me on Twitter because my account is and always has been public, and I don’t need to cleanse any of my tweets.  I’m not afraid of the rest of the world seeing what I have to say.

Why are you?  What else are you hiding?  Oh, and Ramadan Mubarak [a blessed Ramadan], chump.

It is pretty amazing that a mainstream newspaper would hire such a person in any capacity. Also, citing Bangladesh as an example for others in any category is much more than a laugh, but a sign of insanity. Niraj should move to Dhaka if he finds Bangladesh to be such a garden spot. If we are fortunate, Warikoo will experience one of the great treasures of Bangladesh during his stay, which is Cholera. Yes, it is indeed a showplace for Islam. Nirah, lead us by example. Go live on the streets on Dhaka, and not in a Western hotel. Enjoy the ambiance of raw sewage and flies. Allahu Akbar!

Well, in this case the dumbing down of reporters has produced an appropriate passage in the Freep. McCain’s daughter should ‘revert’ back to islam. Precisely the right word!

I thought the same thing, Little Al.

And he has to hide his real views from people because they are not exactly mainstream views welcome in American life? We don’t really need to know much more about Niraj Warikoo…. he’s made them clear enough.

Of course this year is also a referendum on Obama’s pro-Islam foreign policy. Americans aren’t embracing it. Will that lead to Warikoo making his Twitter feed private again?

Stay tuned!

Hey if this guy is wants McCain’s Bangladeshi born daughter to be Muslim why don’t he just move to Bangladesh where all the women are Muslim. It shows you where his heart is. He feels those under Muslim rule should be Muslim. He sees women as property. I bet she thanks her lucky stars McCain’s wife brought her to America.

CaliforniaScreaming on August 11, 2010 at 4:24 pm

    Where did you get the idea that he’s sees women as property. I think it’s absurd that you would just assume that

Why am I not suprised that Warifoo is this way. It is typical and so transparent. Does he really believe he is fooling anyone?

Even more disgusting than Warikoo’s articles, is that the Free Press actually employs this lover and supporter of murderers, as long as they happen to be Muslim murderers. He is the perfect example of a “moderate” Muslim; he doesn’t necessarily shoot the guns or detonate the bombs in order to exterminate infidels, but he’ll do anything to assist in the noble cause, all the while pretending to be a “peace loving” Muslim. Actually, I’m only guessing that he hasn’t physically murdered infidels.

Niraj Warikoo is not the devil you make him out to be. He has presented a window to many religions for many readers. As with any religion(myself not a big fan of any of them), whosoever subscribes to one, it is of their constitutionally protected right to do as they please. If you don’t like it, don’t join it. Should all the Muslims suddenly disappear, I would surmise it wouldn’t be long until another religion appears in the vitriol on this website.
