Hey. Want to know why we’re headed toward losing this War against the forces of Islam – the same ones that declared eternal war on the World of Infidels way back in the 7th Century? Watch this CBS video clip, featuring Katie Couric as the host, with Mo Rocca as a guest, in a discussion on the alleged terrible bigotry and hate that Katie says America has exhibited toward Muslims (I removed their stuttering in my transcription):
KC: I also think sort of the chasm between, or the bigotry expressed against Muslims in this country has been one of the most disturbing stories to surface this year. Of course, a lot of noise was made about the Islamic center – mosque down near the World Trade Center. But I think there wasn’t enough sort of careful evaluation of where this bigotry toward one point five billion Muslims world-wide, and how this seething hatred many people feel for all Muslims, which I think is so misdirected and so wrong, and so disappointing.
MR: And you know one thing, I don’t know about you or either of you guys, but I’m pretty smart, and I cannot tell you…
KC: (interrupts) We’ll be the judge of that, Mo.
MR: …I mean I went to really fancy schools. I cannot tell you five things about Islam. I know almost nothing about a major world religion that sits at the intersection of so many issues that are undeniably relevant to all of us. And I’m embarrassed. I mean I know nothing about Islam.
KC: Maybe we need a Muslim version of The Cosby Show.
KC: I know that sounds crazy, but the Cosby Show did so much to change attitudes about African Americans in this country and I think sometimes people are afraid of things they don’t understand. Like you, Mo. You know, you’re saying you don’t know that much, your not afraid of it, but that you’re sort of, don’t have enough knowledge about it, but maybe if it became more part of the popular (inaudible)…
MR: (interrupts) Well, I think that religion should just be taught as an academic subject in public schools…
KC: (interrupts) I totally agree with you.
MR: …much more. The fear of it, it’s so misguided and the interpretation of separation between church and state…
KC: Alright. Let’s change the subject in something a little less heavy.
End of clip
I rest my case. For years this is what we’ve been force-fed by our media and by our elected officials about Islam. Mindless apologist pabulum. Ignorance. Abject denial of reality. Obstinate refusal to do a little homework and study. If these so-called media icons had any real grip on the actual doctrines and practice of Sharia in Muslim states, they’d be damned afraid of it taking over here in the U.S.A.
Better to die free than to submit to Sharia.
