Gary Bauer: Ammanwhore Stocked Audience With Pro-Islamics for 'Holy War' Special

Update:

Islamic Flag Over the White House?

With the Muslim POTUS in the white house, who would know the difference?

looks like Krauthammer doesn’t know yet what time it is. I don’t share his optimism:

No surprises here:

American Values president Gary Bauer on Monday said the audience at ABC’s “Holy War” special edition of “This Week” was stocked with people that support radical Islam and the building of the Ground Zero mosque.

As NewsBusters reported after Sunday’s program, host Christiane Amanpour presented a tremendously skewed view of so-called American Islamophobia cueing up advocates of the premise while attempting to discredit skeptics.

One of those in attendance was Bauer who in a radio interview with WOR’s Steve Malzberg the following day said the audience was also stacked to support the Islamophobia view (audio follows with transcript and commentary): Newsbusters has the story

MRC’s Bozell Addresses Christiane Amanpour’s Biased Townhall on Muslim/Christian Relations

“Ever since 9/11, the media have been telling us that we shouldn’t be judging all Muslims and blaming all Muslims for 9/11, which is absolutely fair and true. But [the media] can turn around and blame Christianity for any opposition to Muslims,” lamented NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell on this morning’s “Fox & Friends.”

(If you have trouble with the video, go here,  to the Blaze. Plenty of backup and more on the story!)

Just because “there is some fanatic somewhere in Tennessee who desecrates a mosque somewhere, Gary Bauer is being held responsible for it. This is the double standard,” the Media Research Center president argued, responding to a clip from Sunday of a testy exchange ABC “This Week” host Christiane Amanpour and the president of the social conservative group American Values.

“Christiane Amanpour was supposed to be the moderator” of the townhall forum, not a participant, Bozell complained. “She doesn’t understand that,” instead seeing herself in the role of an “educator” to her television audience.

Perhaps Ammanwhore went to this kind of journo-school:

Michigan State University’s School of Journalism publishes manual for journalists to help them whitewash Islamic jihad

Pamela Geller has noted the same tendency to whitewash the way in which Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism on the part of the Society of Professional Journalists, here.

Schlockery & Mockery: Who is Driving Daisy the Victim in the Arms of Al Qaeda?

Update:

Muslim-sympathizer Anderson Cooper gets a smackdown:

COOPER: “But the Muslims building the Ground Zero mosque are not terrorists.”

ELLMERS: “We don’t know that.”

Anderson Cooper really makes an ass of himself in this vid. He asks the lowest kind of questions, and wonders why he comes across as a lowlife…..

Thanks to Barenaked Islam: NORTH CAROLINA: ‘Anti-Ground Zero Mosque’ Renee Ellmers for Congress

One of the commenters really gets it:

Cooper dug a grave for himself. The main thrust of his argument was that becuase of past precedents it’s ok for conquerors to build victory memorials. So he is admitting he believes that the muslims are the victorious conquerors in this and they should be allowed to build a memorial to their victory because other “religions” have already set the precedent. Did no-one else notice this??

Mosque Masquerade: Malice or Mendacity? More Daisy Cons and Lies

Tools like Ammanwhore put us on the defensive……

Death threats? Death threats my ass……!

The wife of the imam behind the Ground Zero Victory Mosque told ABC they have received death threats…
But they’re going ahead with their mosque anyway.

On the same broadcast Muslim leader Anjem Choudary, a former British solicitors and Islamic cleric, told an audience this week that eventually you’ll see global Islamic rule including here in the United States.
The AP reported;

Watching Amanpour’s pathetic panel earlier today was painful. So many jihadist moments vying for worst moment — the vile Goebbels-inspired Reza Aslan calling Rob Spencer a neo-nazi was one of them, for example (here).

Update:

Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of Rev. Billy Graham, called Islam “wicked” and “evil” on Sunday during a televised town hall-style discussion about American’s feelings about the religion.

“They want to build as many mosques and cultural centers as they possibly can so they can convert as many Americans as they can to Islam,” Graham said on ABC’s “This Week.” (Politico)

Pamela Geller:

Earlier today on Christiane Amanpour’s abhorrent offering to Islam, we were subjected to Daisy Khan making fun of Ayaan Hirsi Ali for having to havesecurity guards. Daisy the con claimed that she too received threats, but she wouldn’t have guards because “this was America,” and she didn’t want to cost the taxpayer money. Why would we pick up her tab? The taxpayer doesn’t pay Wafa Sultan’s tab or Molly Norris’s witness protection tab or my tab or Spencer’s or Ibn Warraq’s. Why hers, if there really had been a threat?

Color me skeptical. I don’t believe she has received credible threats (neither do I. Read it all, here: Mosquerade)

Disgusting, the way Ammanwhore rigged the debate, which never happened:

Ammanwhore presents "all sides" (of Islam)

Amanpour Promises ‘All Sides,’ Yet She Skews Debate as She Charges ‘Islamophobia’ Spurs Anti-Muslim Violence

This is one crazy b#*ch……..

Previous posts on Amanpour’s one-sided coverage of the Ground Zero Mosque:

September 12: “Amanpour Uses ABC’s This Week to Continue Her Crusade to Smear America as Islamophobic and Tout Rauf’s Cause”August 22: “Amanpour on One-Sided This Week: ‘Profound Questions About Religious Tolerance and Prejudice in the U.S.’”

After two shows featuring six advocates of the Ground Zero mosque, including Iman Faisal Abdul Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan, but not a single guest to counter Christiane Amanpour’s contention opposition “has raised profound questions about religious tolerance and prejudice in the United States,” ABC on Sunday decided to air a pre-recorded and edited “special This Week town hall debate, Holy War: Should Americans Fear Islam?” Amanpour promised: “We air the issue from all sides…” (News busters)

Right. Promoting all sides of Islam, that’s what she does.

Which reminds me: “Yesterday’s rally was very diverse. They had socialists, Marxists, AND communists!”

Too bad Ammanpour didn’t ask Saudi cleric Muhammad al Arifi about which side he’s on:

Michelle Obama:  “being America’s First Lady is ‘hell'”

Hmm. Could it be that its a few notches above her pay-grade?

Michelle Obama:  Enduring a hell that peasants could never understand.

Bitter Half Grouses About Her Tough Job/ Moonbattery

It’s tough being the wife of the most powerful man in the world, just ask Michelle Obama. Carla Bruni, who seemed to reveal her distaste for the First Lady in previous pictures, reveals Michelle’s whiny comments in her recent book [Aside: why is a sitting world leader’s spouse writing a tell-all? What tawdriness.]

Anyway, here’s what was allegedly said:

Michelle Obama thinks being America’s First Lady is ‘hell’, Carla Bruni reveals today in a wildly indiscreet book.

Miss Bruni divulges that Mrs Obama replied when asked about her position as the U.S. president’s wife: ‘Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!’
