• This Muslim “Comedian” Thinks Terrorist Gripes With America Are “Valid and Legitimate”

    He may not agree with their methods, but this so-called “comedian” believes the terrorists who gunned down the hero cartoonists in France yesterday had valid points to make. Lovely.

    The Muslim-American comic’s name is Azhar Usman, and you’ve probably never heard of him before. Clearly, that’s a good thing.

    Over at CNN, Usman shared his view on the Paris massacre. “These guys are jihadists. They’re motivated by political realities, they have political gripes, and the reason why it becomes really problematic and there’s a lot of tension there is because the gripes that Muslim terrorists complain about often are actually valid and legitimate gripes that have to do with American foreign policy, that have to do with Israel and Palestine, and Muslims, by and large, have a tremendous amount of, let’s say, sympathy for a lot of those sentiments.”

    He continued, “We can’t pretend as though the magazine was not totally racist and xenophobic and offensive on a lot of different levels.”

    Unsurprisingly, the CNN crew didn’t challenge Usman in the least.

    Then again, he is a “comedian.” Perhaps he was simply attempting to say something hilarious and outrageous. If that’s the case, he succeeded.
