It didn’t take long after the horrific shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand for liberal mainstream media outlets like CNN and others in the progressive movement to lay the blame for the massacre at the feet of President Trump.
Well, this didn’t go over very well with a Muslim doctor and journalist who made an appearance on CNN and ripped the liberal narrative that claims Trump is Islamophobic to pieces, making left-wing heads explode by saying the president is “well loved in the Middle East.”
Oh the liberal tears that probably flowed at hearing such a proclamation.
“Viewers should know this president and this administration is often castigated as Islamophobic, but I move in the Muslim world — in Egypt, in Oman, in Jordan, in Iraqi Kurdistan — where this president is beloved,” physician and journalist Qanta Ahmed told CNN on Saturday. “This president and the Republican Party, going back to George Bush, is very dearly held.”take our poll - story continues below
She also noted the 1988 Halabja genocide in which Saddam Hussein’s Iraq used chemical weapons to kill about 5,000 Kurds; it was part of the eight-stage Anfal campaign against the Kurds that claimed 182,000 lives.
“Today’s the anniversary of Halabja, the massacre of 180,000 Kurds at the hands of Saddam Hussein,” Ahmed added. “That only changed because of a Republican president. So it’s very important not to lose so much perspective that we start believing our entire government is Islamophobic. That’s not the case.”
Ahmed later says, “we must distinguish lethal, diabolical anti-Muslim xenophobia as has happened in Christchurch from Islamophobia. Why should we do that? Because if we do not, we empower Islamists who wish to propagate the myth — the same myth that the white supremacist gunman wants us to believe: That we are under siege in secular world, that we are victims in the west.”

Wow. It’s so refreshing to see someone from the Muslim community shred the leftist narrative about Trump. So many folks buy into the mainstream media narrative about the president being racist and all sorts of things he’s not, so to have this voice dispelling that belief is great.
