U.S. Muslim Meets Eric Trump, Discovers Media Lied About ‘Muslim Registry’
Mohammed Amer is a Muslim comedian who traffics liberally in claims that Muslims are being unfairly victimized in post-9/11 America. Operating as if such a false media narrative is still simply accepted as truth in 2016, Amer’s website proclaims:
With parents from Palestine, born in Kuwait, and raised in Houston, Texas, his entire life provides fodder for hilarious -- and at times heartbreaking -- personal stories.
Well, Amer just got what he assumed would be a splendid opportunity to further his career of playing victim, but it didn’t turn out that way. Amer boarded a plane last week, and to his shock, found Eric Trump, Donald’s son, next to him.
Instead of the fireworks Amer expected -- presumably due to Amer having believed the two years of outrageously false media coverage of the Trump campaign -- Amer received a lesson in establishment media distortion and lies. Though unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that Amer realizes yet just how badly he had been misled all these years.
A Huffington Post article on the Trump/Amer encounter gives us a glimpse of what Flying While Trump must be like today: “[T]he woman behind them was clearly upset” that Eric Trump was on the flight. She said to Amer: “I wouldn’t even sit next to him if I were you.”
But Amer says his own reaction was different: “Thank you, God.”
Amer said to Eric:
You don’t even know how fantastic this is for me. I’m a Muslim named Mohammed who happens to be a stand-up comedian, and I’m sitting next to you. Its perfect.
Apparently, Amer thought he would have an excellent opportunity to school young Eric in the Leftist, mainstream media vision of all that is moral and good, and he immediately set out to try. The Huffington Post recounts:
Then, in the politest way he could, Amer let him know something …
“I was like, ‘Yo, and I’m not doing that s--t. I’m not going to get an ID, a Muslim ID and all this crap. I’m not doing that. F--k that,’” Amer explained.
That was polite? Anyway, Mohammed Amer quickly learned from Eric that the establishment propaganda hysteria over this supposed “Muslim registry” had no basis in fact:
Amer said that Eric told him nothing of the sort would happen. "He goes, 'Come on, man you really think we’re going to do that? We’re not doing that.' That’s what he said. “We’re not doing that.” I was like, “OK, fantastic.”
True to form, the Huffington Post allowed this exposure of a falsehood having been used to distort Donald Trump’s actual position to pass by without further comment. And if, at that point, a glimmer of skepticism had flashed across Amer’s mind regarding the propaganda he had been fed, it was not recorded in the article, either.
The Huffington Post article did include this:
As Amer and Eric got to talking, the comedian told him that he had toured with Dave Chappelle. When Eric heard that, he had a request: “Tell him to take it easy on [my dad].” To which Amer responded, “That’s not gonna happen. We are not going to take it easy. It’s not our job to take it easy on you guys.”
Of course, the vast majority of entertainers think it is their job to take it easy on Democrats, socialists, and the like.
