Extreme Makeover: Home Jihadist Whitewash Edition

By Debbie Schlussel

Perhaps they need to change the name of “Extreme Makeover:  Home Edition” to “Extremist Makeover:  Home Jihadist Whitewash and Revisionist Edition.”  On  last night’s edition of the ABC show (video below), the program and its hosts pretended that the Fort Hood Massacre wasn’t committed by a jihadist Muslim, but by outer space aliens or some other unknown force beyond our control.



The show focused on helping Staff Sgt. Patrick Ziegler, who nearly died in the massacre perpetrated by Major Nidal Malik Hasan, with a wedding to his girlfriend and new home.  Ziegler, who wasn’t expected to live, is in a wheelchair because he was shot more than once by Hasan, in the name of allah.  But the host and others–including numerous top Fort Hood Army officials–went out of their way not to mention Hasan, the jihadist attack, or anything indicating that this was the result of Islamic terrorism. Hasan’s name was never mentioned in the entire hour.  Instead, a lot of neutral euphemisms were employed to whitewash the whole event. So many euphemisms, I lost track.

Instead, they all referred to “a gunman,” “the incident,” “the tragedy.”  That’s as detailed as it got.  Um, did the Fort Hood attack happen in a vacuum . . . or was it the result of Muslim extremism and America-hatred of Nidal Malik Hasan–and politically correct authorities pandering to that every step of the way, as every single investigative report–from the U.S. Senate to the actual incident report–reveals? Host Ty Pennington said, “this is all about love conquers all.” No, it’s about Pennington’s, the show’s producers’, and ABC’s desperate attempt to whitewash all that is Islam. I felt like I was watching Oliver Stone’s “World Trade Center” (read my review), in which the 9/11 attacks were also perpetrated by extraterrestrial outer space creatures, but definitely not Islamic terrorists who were never mentioned.

Watch the video (you only need to watch the whitewashed set-up at the beginning, which is repeated throughout) . . .

You can bet that if Fort Hood was shot up by a Christian gunman in the name of Jesus, “Extreme Makeover:  Home Jihadist Whitewash and Revisionist Edition” wouldn’t go out of their way to fail to mention his name and what actually happened.

But Islam is the religion about which Hollywood refuses to get real.  Every single person shot and killed–and every single person shot and wounded–at the Fort Hood Massacre was shot in the name of Islam, nothing else.  This wasn’t an “incident.”  It was a jihadist massacre.  Hasan wasn’t a mere “gunman.”  He’s a jihadist warrior, who was sent to college, medical school, and otherwise subsidized every step of the way by generous American taxpayers and still murdered as many of them as possible in the name of allah.  And it wasn’t just a nameless, faceless “tragedy.”  It was another successful Islamic terrorist attack on U.S. soil because the FBI, the U.S. military, and other such entities refuse to crack down on Muslim extremists, which always tends to be a redundant phrase, despite the blind eye they turn to it.

It is a grotesque display, and it dishonored the dead and permanently injured. Apparently, Islamic self-esteem trumps basic humanity.

There is rumor and Bill Cosby talked about it, that they are thinking of making a muslim version of the Cosby show to spread the “truth” about islam.

Cosby said:

“The bottom line: No, the show wouldn’t be a perfect solution. But yes, it would be a good idea. Like The Cosby Show, it would have to start off by tiptoeing around people’s prejudices by keeping things comfortable and familiar.

By leveraging the universal appeal of family, he says, the program would force people who have unfounded bitterness toward Islam to stop and ask themselves, “Have I been a hater?” And, all criticism and snark aside, we must admit, that’s a start.”

Of course “truth” would be the propaganda they want to promote. Really doubt we would see ninja suits and wife beating.

The real fun is just beginning!

Once Col. Khaddafi gets ousted from power, The Nation of Islam will lose its main source of income!

Then watch the pols and hacks flubber and pander!

Can’t allow one of our “community organizers” go unfunded now, can we?!?

The continued wilfull ignorance of facts concerning Islam is on full display with every aspect of the Ft. Hood shooting story.

He was an officer who was allowed to continue doing his job because even the US Army has become permeated with the politically correct mentality of not hurting anyone’s feelings on the subject of religion. Hasan did exactly what several of us in less-politically-correct units have said for years — the Army’s unwillingness to address this issue would bit it in the keister.

I wrote about this subject right after it happened — which was right after I got back from a tour in the Sandbox — and, magically, it took the Senate Oversight Committee over a year to come up with some of the same conclusions. Here’s my take on it back when it happened: http://twistedsenseoffunny.blogspot.com/2009/11/some-thoughts-on-maj-hasan.html

Simple fact: He shot non-Muslims because his religion told him to. The quicker people realize that, the faster it can be dealt with.

Sadly, I don’t think that will happen any time soon.

Mr. Twisted on February 21, 2011 at 11:12 am

    You are so right!!! Muslims in my opinion should never be allowed to serve in the military, because their allegiance is not to the flag but to Islam and this was NOT the first incident of a muslim soldier killing americans.

    Tony on February 21, 2011 at 1:34 pm

When will people realize that this was not a tragedy? A tragedy is when a young child dies of cancer. This is an act of terrorism perpetrated by a Muslim jihadist…pure and simple. This administration cannot tell us how to think and speak, albeit to what lengths they try to do so.

Mike on February 21, 2011 at 11:34 am

ABC – the Akbar Broadcasting Caliphate, a division of Disney, where there is no such thing as a bad Muslim.

Well, everyone, note the sponsors of “Home Makeover,” and call them up and tell them you are boycotting their products until they stop sponsoring this Islamic loving show. Enough calls will get a response.

In fact, flood the switchboard to the President’s office of ABC as well. Complain. Don’t just whine on this website.

Stand up and be counted.

Jonathan Grant on February 21, 2011 at 11:40 am

    Jon, this doesn’t surprise me.

    In fact, I’ll think I’ll get a lot of flak for my comment posted on today’s new Lara Logan thread.

    Its not just rapists – some criminals are more equal than others – IF they have the right background.

    Say what you like about Nidal Malik Hasan but the truth is he’s politically correct. Its hard to imagine another mass murderer being treated with such deference on “Extreme Makeover.”

    The only “extreme makeover” performed on the show was on the truth. How very fitting, indeed!

    NormanF on February 21, 2011 at 1:02 pm

The only way our government and the sheeple who support islam will change is if some “important” people get massacured by these soul-less wonders.
Even then, I won’t be holding my breath.

wolf2012 on February 21, 2011 at 11:45 am


You are certainly correct here, but I will throw one other factor into the mix:

American history is rife with such euphemisms and has done this since at least the Civil War–presumably to promote an idealized notion of this country. (Which fewer and fewer people actually believe.)

During JFK’s presidency, they spoke of the Cuban Missile Crisis, as if it happened out of the blue–and was not the Russian reaction to at least 100 of our ICBMs in range to hit Moscow. (As well as a couple of failed attempts to liberate Cuba, gloriously screwed up by JFK.)

The Japanese struck Pearl Harbor all right in Dec, 1941, but the official history at the time seemed to forget about our oil embargo of Japan and a host of other factors that pushed them to do it. Of course, FDR wanted us in WW2, and provoking the Japanese was the best way to achieve this.

And then there’s the case of St. Abraham, who “found himself” in a Civil War, prosecuting it with great alacrity, and is somehow now thought of as a great president, even if his three predecessors are universally condemned for not preventing the same war.

Thus, the whitewashing of Ft Hood is only done to protect the images of those in power. The good news is that no one is buying this version.

Honestly, I deal with govt at all levels constantly, and most people are just saying what they are told to say–but very few actually believe it. When you do meet a true-blue PC individual, it is less than 10 percent of the time.

Red Ryder on February 21, 2011 at 11:47 am

    Oh great, another history revisionist. There was a good reason for our oil embargo of Japan. Do you have any idea of what they were doing to the Chinese at the time? Unfortunately, this is what they continue to teach in Japanese schools at every level to this very day. That WWII was all about “gasoline denial.” Ask anyone who grew up in Japan’s educational system, and this is still the official line. Not a single thing about their evil emperor (euphemism for dictator) or “comfort women.”

    Anyhow, do you consider what they did at Pearl Harbor to be an appropriate reaction to an embargo of any kind? Sheesh.

    Irving on February 21, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    Red Ryder sez:

    “During JFK’s presidency, they spoke of the Cuban Missile Crisis, as if it happened out of the blue–and was not the Russian reaction to at least 100 of our ICBMs in range to hit Moscow. (As well as a couple of failed attempts to liberate Cuba, gloriously screwed up by JFK.)”

    Uh, I think you refer to ONE failed previous attempt, the Bay of Pigs, which was screwed up by CIA (though the pres. does, in theory, oversee it). As for “Russian reaction,” you mean “Soviet reaction,” and you foolishly parrot the leftist line that the communists were just being defensive. In fact, the SU’s seizure of Eastern Europe after WW2 was not a “reaction” to anything, except new opportunities.

    Red Ryder indeed.

    skzion on February 21, 2011 at 12:39 pm

Red Ryder,
Correct on all counts.

wolf2012 on February 21, 2011 at 11:57 am


Read your own post! Of course there was a “good reason” to get into the war. There is *always* a good reason for wars, right? Only, they never seem to quite accomplish what the promoters promise.

As WW2 ended, at the cost of 55 million lives, two horrible dictatorial powers (Japan and Germany) were replaced with two other horrible dictatorial powers (Russia and China). That worked out well.

Ask anyone from Eastern Europe, and he will tell you that WW2 ended for *them* in 1989.

Stop drinking the Kool-Aid.

Red Ryder on February 21, 2011 at 12:36 pm



Red Ryder on February 21, 2011 at 12:36 pm


Take a breath there, pal. I am hardly pushing the Commie line to say that based on JFK’s recklessness, we really could have had WW3. Am I defending Khrushchev in so doing? Of course not.

Besides, it was not reported at the time that the crisis was only averted by JFK agreeing to remove our missiles from Turkey.

Red Ryder on February 21, 2011 at 12:48 pm

Ironically, ABC has a very different offering – “V” – that, though hardly intended as such, could be taken as a metaphor for the Islamic threat. The Visitors claim “We are of peace”, though their peace really means submission. The invaders place their own people surreptitiously in positions of influence, even in our security establishment. The media are actively involved in promoting the Visitors, refusing to probe beyond the narrative. A few who have seen (literally) the true face of the Visitors and resist are vilified and pursued. The Visitors have a secret agenda, just like the Muslim Brotherhood, and “breeding” (demographics) is one part of that agenda. Getting the natives to join them (convert) is another part. The Visitors try to get us hooked on their technology, as OPEC nations have hooked us on their oil. The show even throw in an Israeli – ex-Mossad Ari Cohn – targeted as Public Enemy #1 for his role in the resistance. (He is ultimately sacrificed. Hmmm.)

Of course, one could perform a comparable exercise with The Lord of the Rings, which really was inspired by a very different contest of good struggling against evil. But in LotR, the darkness was more obvious, while with “V” we’re dealing with willful blindness against a looming threat.

Raymond in DC on February 21, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    I think its deeper than that. The theme of V could be a Metaphor for the One-World banking system/One-world Government that’s secretly trying to destroy and enslave the whole world by manipulating currency and by funding of both sides of all wars so that no matter who wins the war, they must pay-back the one-world Bankers so Bankers and one world shadow government ultimately rule and control both sides. Now they are taking it to the next step which is to rule and control the whole world by issuing a one world currency, which is printed by a one world government cartel run by a few elitist leftists. i.e A new world order!

    Who cares? on February 21, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Islamic white-washing is the cool craze that has taken over America like a ginormous tsunami.

As I mentioned yesterday, the March 2011 issue whitewashes the “First Lady” of Syria, Asma Assad. The article is a total disgrace to anyone who even has a modicum of intelligence.

The unabashed cover-up of this Jihadi puke HASSAN has really been stuck in my craw for a long time now. It is turbo-fueled and it needs to stop NOW.

That show is a disgrace and part of the problem.

Skunky on February 21, 2011 at 1:25 pm

I love you Debbie.. Sometimes I wonder what kind of americans actually live in the USA. What kind of media we have? Imagine, when a few soldiers abused the prisoners in Abu Ghraib, it was news, soldiers were painted as abusers by the liberal media..hence putting their lives in danger and fueling more anti americanism. Guantanamo was featured as an evil dark dungeon created by Bush, the Dems used it to imply that we tortured innocent muslims, it was our fault after all. Now the terrorist act perpetrated by this loser of an officer is whitewashed and ignored. I am sick of it and you are right, if someone had done that in the name of christianity or Judeaism, there would have been an outcry from the Hollywood pinheads, the weak left and the pandering media. These people are the real traitors and maybe we should ask the major if his liberal friends are infidels or his friends.

Tony on February 21, 2011 at 1:31 pm

For anyone who is interested, the Congressional report on Ft. Hood is located here:

Some Highlights….

Evidence of Hasan’s radicalization to violent Islamist extremism was on full display to his superiors and colleagues during his military medical training. An instructor and a
colleague each referred to Hasan as a “ticking time bomb.” Not only was no action taken to discipline or discharge him, but also his Officer Evaluation Reports sanitized his
obsession with violent Islamist extremism into praiseworthy research on counterterrorism.

D0D should also train servicemembers on violent Islamist extremism and how it differs from Islamic religious belief
and practices. (is there a difference….really?)

the threat is diverse because there continues to exist no single profile of violent Islamist extremists, especially in the United States where individuals from various backgrounds
have gravitated to violent Islamist extremism. (I would argue that a second grader could locate a common denominator – does the term “Islamist extremist” not indicate a single profile? Muslim…duh)

I’ll let u guys read the rest……

jdiz on February 22, 2011 at 1:57 pm

If you’ve read Andrew McCarthy’s book, “The Grand Jihad,” none of this would be a surprise. Our Pentagon is complicit with Islamists and loaded with them in “advisory” capacities. Isn’t that reassuring? Not really. Read the book, educate yourselves and be ready for the next attack. It’s coming and our government will do nothing about it, except try to blame the TEA Party.

JeffT on February 22, 2011 at 3:35 pm

Simply and outrageously upsetting.

me on February 22, 2011 at 4:13 pm

It has been known for some time now that todays modern threat does not come from uniformed forces. Or forces that act as Divisions, Brigades, Batalions etc. The threat today is small cells connected to a larger picture. Yet without any real chain of command.
This is difficult to fight. The world has become to us, what we were to the Japs during WWII. A country with a gun behind every blade of grass.
In a conventional war America has no true oponent any longer. We have all the angles, technology and manpower in place.
But we are caught in unconventional warfare and everyone, including ourselves. Is hurting us. Our media is owned to the max by Liberal POS MF’s. Followed by a crowd of Sheeple.
During WWII Americans were colective against the enemy. There were blackouts and people accepted rations. WE AS AMERICAN”S WERE AT WAR. Everyone was comitted to the cause. Today it seems American’s are to busy with stupid BS to wake up and realize everyone has a target on their head. If you think you don’t then think again because you do.
What happend at Hood was swept under the carpet. When it should have been picked apart to all ends. A Muslum did a similar act in the beggining of the Iraq war. He threw a hand grenade into a tent full of other soldiers.
We have enemy infiltrators in our own military forces. Don’t be so sure that these small cells don’t exsist in your own nieghborhood, workplace, grocery store, public transit or general public places you may go. Keep an open eye.
We could learn a lot from the people of Israel. I say Allah Fuckbar to the whole lot of the dirt kissing, wife killing, dirty creatures and their whole belief system.
PC will get you dead. Get it in your head. PC WILL GET YOU DEAD!!!!!
