US talk show host in 'race' rant at pop star Zayn

Bradford One Direction star Zayn Malik accused of "pimping Islam" by American talk-show host



Debbie Schlussel warned US parents: “Keep your daughters away from Zayn Malik’s enticing jihad” as the band – formed two years ago when they reached the finals of X-Factor – toured the US, where they have become massive pop stars.




She accused X-Factor bosses of choosing Zayn for One Direction “specifically because he’s a P*** Muslim, to appeal to that rapidly growing demographic in the UK”




“Keep your daughters away from Zayn Malik’s enticing jihad. With the boy band One Direction, it’s all about pimping Islam amid the deceptive visage of angelic, effeminate boys in a band. Yup, for them there is definitely One Direction: facing Mecca.”

This guy dropped luckily on his feet as part of a manufactured band, One Direction. In essence they are Simon Cowells modern version of the Monkee's (possibly with less talent). The guy was nearly kicked out of the competition twice but the judges put him and four other lads into a band and the chemistry worked. Knock some rough edges off, apply a whole load of styling and suddenly you have boy band fervour and teen girls everywhere are screaming and fainting, as has happened for decades now for various bands.

And Cowell has pitched them at the US market, and - because he is good at that kind of thing (from a marketing point of view) - they have taken off.

Now this kid is 19. he's from a moderate, westernised British muslim family over here. He sings for a living, follows some of his family tradition and generally is just himself (with Cowells media machine spin). If he'd never have entered the X-Factor over here, no one would ever have heard of him.

What right does this woman have then, to make accusations and statements in this manner? She doesn't know the kid.

The fact is, he's muslim.



“You probably don’t know that one of its members, Zayn Malik, is pimping Islam on your kids. That’s in addition to his Arabic tattoos and frequent donning of the keffiyeh, the official garb of Islamic terrorism.”


Sections of America, simply put, completely hate muslims.

And such people cannot distinguish between extremists and normal people.

They also can't accept a persons right to free speech and expression unless its their own version of free speech and expression.

And that, my friends, is a very, very dangerous place to be coming from, especially if such people get into positions of power and influence within politics, and the MIC

Ignorance at its maximum!

As a whole, I would have to concur that certain parts of America is indeed the most ignorant people on planet earth. They see a muslim person, its like "zomg, its a terrorist", just because he is dressed in traditional clothes.

The example you gave here, is just another example of how extreme it is.

So I want to make sure I understand this.

You are judging people who judge other people, saying they shouldn't be judging them because everybody has a right to free speech. Your criticism is that those people you are judging believe only in a right to free expression so long as it agrees with their own.

Aren't you doing the exact same thing they are doing?

What do you expect when the divide and conquer gang have been feeding ideology to diverse groups for decades in order to set up the game. Everyone is born with the potential to be prejudice and to an extent it is adaptive. What makes it destructive is that within the context of the modern world it is being manipulated to set groups of people against each other in order to distract them from the real enemy.

The way I see it, its not about judging people for their believes. They are making assumptions about a Muslim guy, which is rather unfounded. Therefore it is ignorant.

Nope.

I'm saying that they picked this guy out of a band of five people because he's a muslim and labelled him a terrorist and trashed the band, because they hate muslims.

This racial animosity is part of the 9/11 fallout. Kinda lets you know why there is so much resistance with getting to the bottom of who really was behind it all and what kind of repercussions there would be if it did all come out.
