Analyst Quanta Ahmed, a Muslim physician, countering the narrative that President Trump or other Republicans are Islamophobic during an interview on CNN.
The true problem is the media and their interpretation of events. At one time the reporting was looked at as almost Gospel. Times have changed and CNN’s obvious hatred and bias have come to the forefront.
AHMED: it is FALLACY to claim the #Trump administration is ‘#Islamophobic‘ – On the anniversary of #Halabja and #Anfaal #genocide perpetrated by #SaddamHussein & Iraqi Arab government on Iraqi #Kurds claiming 180,000 lives only ended because of a #Republican @POTUS pic.twitter.com/e6sTT6xz3t

Wow, this anchor looked very uncomfortable. Wondering why? It would nice to have this information go viral but since no one watches CNN any longer it will go nowhere.
On Saturday, a Muslim doctor who has been highly critical of radical Islam appeared on CNN and must have given that network heart palpitations as she insisted that in many parts of the Muslim world, not only is President Trump beloved, but so is former President George W. Bush, and that the Trump administration is not Islamophobic.
Dr. Qanta Ahmed, who hails from Great Britain, stated, “One thing the viewers should know, this president and this administration is often castigated as Islamophobic, but I move in the Muslim word, in Egypt, in Oman, in Jordan, in Iraqi Kurdistan, where this president is beloved. This president and the Republican Party going back to George Bush is very dearly held. Today is the anniversary of Halabja, the massacre of 180,000 Kurds at the hands of Saddam Hussein. That only change would [be] because of a Republican president. So it is very important not to lose so much perspective that we start believing our entire government is Islamophobic. That is not the case.”
Ahmed added, “I did see his very categorical condemnation of the events in New Zealand and that was gratifying. And I also feel that he needs to do the same about white supremacy, not only the United States, but globally. There is nothing — the president has no responsibility if a fanatic mentions him in a manifesto. A fanatic could equally mention me. So I don’t think that is his responsibility. But, yes, I would like to see President Trump condemn all forms of lethal bigotry.” More
I’m pleasantly surprised that CNN had Dr. Qanta Ahmed on. But did you notice how quickly the host ended the conversation? Not a single response. CNN is not having it. It completely ruins their narrative. The Doctor got CNN right where they live. It was glorious!
Dr. Ahmed has always been the voice of reason and an honest person. I’m even more surprised she wasn’t censored by CNN.
