In the wake of a barbaric terrorist attack in London---the third to strike England in three months---the US Corporate Media are again making fools of themselves and demonstrating their irrelevance to much of anything.
Reza Aslan, a multimillionaire CNN host who travels throughout the MSM posing as an expert on religion, denounced President Trump in vulgar language for suggesting that the US needs tighter national security policies.
"This piece of s--- is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency; he is an embarrassment to all mankind!" Aslan screamed on Twitter; his blind hatred of Trump surpassing any anger he (presumably) felt over the London attack. To these media crackpots, being a Trump supporter is often seen as worse than being a murderous Jihadi.
Aslan was born in Tehran and his parents came to the US during the Iranian Revolution to escape the radicalism they saw emerging there. His family converted to Christianity and Aslan was baptized at age 15. After attending Divinity Schools at Santa Clara University, Harvard, and the University of California at Santa Barbara, Aslan re-converted to Islam and now writes and speaks out against traditional Christianity. Only American public schools could accomplish a feat like that.
What's a lot more interesting is watching how traditional religions come together in times of crisis. In the recent Jihadi Insurrection in the Philippines, it's being reported that traditional Moslems are helping and sheltering Christians escaping the clutches of ISIS. Similar things have happened in Syria and Iraq.
Instead of attacking the government, Harun Khan of the British Moslem Council, stated: "Moslems everywhere are outraged and disgusted at these cowards who once again have destroyed the lives of our fellow Britons. That this attack happened during the month of Ramadan, when most Moslems are praying and fasting only goes to show that these people respect neither life nor faith."
It also shows again that the Corporate Media---and the American Left generally---has no respect for life and faith. The BBC, in contrast, is working with the authorities by setting up hotlines and facilitating information to reunite people caught up in the attack.
The American Media used to be respectable too. But that was before they looked to people like Reza Aslan as spiritual leaders.
