This is the kind of crap students are being spoonfed these days on college campuses and CNN’s attempt to brainwash the public CNN’s W. Kamau Bell devoted a recent episode of his series United Shades of America to exploring Muslim and Arab communities. No wonder they riot and destroy anything American.
Aside from some interesting vignettes, the program is left-wing, anti-Trump propaganda that firmly establishes the network’s political bias. Bell also serves up some historical distortions of the sort spoonfed to undergraduates on politically-correct campuses, such as the claim that Islam has always been present in the U.S.
It was Obama who told the Muslim world in his Cairo speech in 2009: “Islam has always been a part of America’s story.” He offered a dubious proof: “The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco.” He also cited the Treaty of Tripoli, which was essentially an agreement to pay a bribe to Muslim pirates who had made a practice of kidnapping Americans…
While Muslims were present at America’s founding, Islam — as a coherent, self-conscious religious and political civilization — was not. Had it been present, one would have expected the Founding Fathers to be more aware of it, and one would have expected to see an American version of the faith emerge, one more comfortable with ideas of tolerance and individual liberty, much as different reformist versions of Judaism flourished in the United States CNN: Islam Was Part of America’s Founding
That’s funny I don’t remember hearing about any Muslims on the Mayflower. I don’t remember Hearing about Muslims suffering through harsh winters. I don’t remember hearing about Muslims fighting in the Revolutionary War. I don’t remember hearing about Muslims signing the Declaration of Independence. I don’t remember hearing about Muslim slaves during the civil war. I don’t remember hearing about Muslims in the civil war. I don’t remember hearing about Muslims fighting in WW1 or WW11. All they have is the signing of some little treaty that was a bribe to Muslim pirates who kidnapped Americans, but the way they are re-writing history these days I’m sure we will. They’ll probably have someone named Abdullah signing the Declaration of Independence or they’ll say all the signers were of Muslin descendants. The only connection islam has to America’s founding is the crushing of the Barbary Pirates and the line of the Marine Corps Hymn ..to the shores of Tripoli, where the marines showed the followers of the false prophet what for.
If people were to read the Koran they would find it is not the peaceful book it is made out to be. It is full of passages saying to kill the infidels and to become friends with the infidels in order to get them to convert. If they don’t convert they are your enemy..
I agree with the following comments:
These people who are so eager to make Islam a part of American society had better be very careful what they wish for. These so called news people will be the first to be paraded in front of a mob of Jihadists and have their throats slit. This is a religion that is completely antithetic to everything this nation was formed on was never then or now a part of the fabric of this nation. During the holocaust, there were many Jews that didn’t believe that the Nazis were exterminating their fellow Jews and were led to the incinerators like sheep to the slaughter. It appears that many in this country will suffer the same fate that in their stupidity they are so eagerly calling for.
No there trying to save themselves for when the beheadings start and hope they won’t be the ones chosen because they are standing up for Islam !!!
That just goes to show you how completely delusional the people at CNN, and other media outlets, are. You know and I know that if any one of them were to be caught by a jihadi intent on beheading an American that they’re going to ask that person if they work for CNN to see if they’d be spared? Really? They actually believe the BS they’re reporting. Insane.
