Khizr Khan, Servant of the Global Umma

The mainstream media is wild with enthusiasm these days over Khizr Khan, the father of a Muslim soldier, Humayun Khan, who was killed fighting in Iraq in 2004. Khizr Khan, brimming with self-righteous anger, spoke at the Democratic National Convention, where he delivered what the Washington Post dubbed a “brutal repudiation of Donald Trump.” Trump responded, elevating Khizr Khan to the status of full-fledged flavor-of-the-moment media celebrity. There’s just one catch: Khizr is using his son’s memory not to advance the cause of the United States, as his son apparently died trying to do, but to advance a quite different cause: that of the global umma.

      They even had them on the PBS Newshour to undermine Trump and I turned it off as it was clearly partisan.

    Nazi parents lost their sons too. That didn’t mean we didn’t need to utterly destroy Naziism just like we need to utterly destroy Islam which is the root cause of terrorism.

    My first thought was Susan Rice on her famous Sunday morning talking head circus act.

    It is election season after all and Clinton likes to lie on behalf of some Islamist benefactor/master. The Khan Con about peaceful Islam from a guy who knows full well that it is not.
