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.
Amer — and the mainstream media he was relying upon – had believed, and had been spreading as truth, the claim that Donald Trump intends to force all Muslims to register with the government.
Perhaps Amer learned this propaganda from NBC News, which tweeted out a partial quotation from Trump’s chief of staff Reince Priebus. Outrageously, the tweet trimmed out the information that proved Priebus had actually given the precise opposite response.
Priebus actually said:
Look, I’m not going to rule out anything. But, we are not going to have a registry based on religion.
Well, NBC News only reported the first sentence.
This incident was telling. Perhaps the most history-changing event of the 2016 presidential campaign has been the exposure of proof that the mainstream media is not in any sense a reliable news source. We are being lied to, on a massive scale, by media outlets that are working behind the scenes to assist the propaganda efforts of the Left.
We know that Soros also spent $600,000 for favorable coverage of the Muslim migrant inundation; bought favorable coverage of the Iran deal; and bought “Islamophobia” propaganda right after the San Bernardino jihad massacre.
The hysteria over a Muslim registry is just another example of this propaganda, as Mohammed Amer found out when he shared a flight with Eric Trump.
Let’s see if has the courage to break with the propagandists and work that into his act.
