| In featuring grieving Muslim parents, WaPo, DNC imply all resistance to jihad is bigotry
| Saturday, July 30, 2016
|The Washington Post has been biased in its coverage of the Trump campaign, to say the least, and was banned
from a Trump-Pence rally, after which a follow-up article declared:
“that should scare the hell out of you”.
Well, it sure angered the hell
out of the Washington Post. A follow-up attack took aim for Trump’s “jugular” and shoved the raw
emotions of a grieving Muslim couple into its headlines — the same
couple who took the stage at the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia,
as Jihad Watch noted here.
The couple spoke of their son, Captain Humayun Khan of the US Army,
who was stationed in Iraq and killed by jihadists 12 years ago in an
attack explosion. Parents do not get over the death of their children,
and the Washington Post in a feature report — with full video included,
and a link to the Arlington Cemetery where the young captain died as a
hero — elected this couple to do their dirty work in a low attempt to
besmirch Trump, as seen in the article below.
Agreed with Humayun’s father, Khizr Khan, about his statement: “Go
look at the graves of the brave patriots who died defending America —
you will see all faiths, genders, and ethnicities”, and indeed, that
must never be forgotten. But the Post and the DNC presented this in
service of a truly ominous agenda. The implication presented by the Washington Post and the DNC as they
featured Khizr Khan and the story of his son is that Trump — and by
extension all those who aim to protect the American public by targeting
jihadists with zero tolerance — are not just opposed to jihad terror,
but anti-Muslim, and only appreciative of contributions to America based
on faith and ethnicity.
Shame on the Washington Post and the Democratic National Convention
for fanning the flames of the us-versus-them mentality in the course of
their attack on Trump, and preying on the grieving family of Captain
Humayun Khan to fuel their agenda. More on this story. “The father of Muslim soldier killed in action just delivered a brutal repudiation of Donald Trump”, by Philip Bump, The Washington Post, June 28, 2016:
