Last week a silent protester – Rose Hamid – was ejected from a Donald Trump rally. The media, accordingly went nuts as usual, claiming that this is just another example of Donald Trump’s mean and hateful rhetoric against Muslims. The Huffington Post ran the headline "Woman Removed From Donald Trump Rally Wanted To Show 'Muslims Are Not That Scary’," completely omitting the part where the woman was in fact a protester.
But not to worry; CAIR (Center for American Islamic Relations) came to her defense, putting out a statement:
The image of a Muslim woman being abused and ejected from a political rally sends a chilling message to American Muslims and to all those who value our nation's traditions of religious diversity and civic participation.
Ironically, CAIR is quite possibly the shadiest of lobby groups in the United States – having known ties to Hamas – yes, that Hamas – as The Daily Wire reported.
What I want do draw your attention to with this column is what the protestor was wearing. She had, on her chest, a yellow star with the word "Muslim" written across it.
If the Left has taught us anything in 2015, it’s that they hate "cultural appropriation." This of course, is the balderdash assertion that an individual of one culture is not allowed to adopt – or try – things from other cultures. Whether it was Halloween costumes at Yale University, or trivial yoga lessons at the University of Ottawa, social justice warriors lost their collective minds upon discovering that these events had been taking place and wasted no breath in shutting them down with their politically correct iron fists to secure safe-spaces for everyone.
Well, turns out that this only applies if you’re white. Going back to our protester, the yellow-star on her chest is a clear-cut copy of the badges Jewish people were forced to wear under Nazi rule – absolutely no cultural appropriation here, right liberals?
This is feeding on the all-you-can-eat buffet put forth by leftist politicians like Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau, who continue to suggest that Muslims are victims of some mass epidemic racism in the Western world; apparently to a degree which we are now comparing to the Holocaust. Despite the fact that this is unequivocally erroneous – according to every police report.
As Breitbart reported, Rose Hamid, our innocent protester, is in fact a radical Islamic activist with an agenda. Hamid promotes anti-Israel propaganda and is an apologist for Palestinian terrorism against Israel – calling it "resistance against occupation." Rather fitting for her to bear the badge worn by Jews during the holocaust, isn’t it?
