Winston Churchill, Anti-German Hate Group Leader

What if World War II had been reported the way the establishment media writes about the global jihad today? The question is pertinent in light of the ongoing demonization of Trump adviser Steven K. Bannon, who is now being vilified by establishment media for a ten-year-old unproduced film project discussing the jihad threat.

Matea Gold of the Washington Post described the film in lurid terms:

The flag fluttering above the U.S. Capitol is emblazoned with a crescent and star. Chants of “Allahu Akbar” rise from inside the building.

That’s the provocative opening scene of a documentary-style movie outlined 10 years ago by Stephen K. Bannon that envisioned radical Muslims taking over the country and remaking it into the “Islamic States of America,” according to a document describing the project obtained by The Washington Post.

Hate-mongering! Fear-mongering!

Right?

Well, Matea Gold didn’t bother to ask Omar Ahmad what he thought of this. Ahmad, the cofounder and long-time board chairman of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), once said:

Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.

Ahmad now denies saying those words, but the original reporter still stands by her story. And CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper once said:

I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.

Meanwhile, according to a captured internal document, the Muslim Brotherhood (to which all major Muslim groups in the U.S. are linked) is dedicated to:

… eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house … so that it falls, and Allah’s religion is victorious over other religions.

Then there is the Washington, D.C. imam who wants to:

... establish an Islamic State of America by 2050.

Gold mentions none of this. Steve Bannon actually did his homework, and for this he is described as a bigoted Islamophobe.

Gold adds:

The proposal names two dozen conservative writers and terrorism experts who could serve as potential on-screen guests, including Robert Spencer, director of the Jihad Watch website, who is labeled by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an anti-Muslim "propagandist."

Am I, now?

Imagine if this were 1930, and the Southern Poverty Law Center existed, and it issued a lavishly illustrated, meticulously “documented” report on critics of the Nazis, dubbing them “anti-German hate group leaders.”

They would include profiles of Winston Churchill, Edgar Mowrer, and other early critics of Hitler, noting when each had made false claims about Hitler -- false, that is, according to the Nazis -- and charging them with “hate” and “anti-German bias.”
