I don’t get it. The media seem to think they found the new Cindy Sheehan:
The father of a Muslim-American soldier who was killed in the Iraq War delivered a passionate appeal at the Democratic National Convention for voters to support Hillary Clinton, accusing Republican Donald Trump of sacrificing “nothing” and “smearing the character” of religious minorities like his family.
Khizr Khan, whose son, Army Capt. Humayun Khan, 27, died from a suicide bombing in Baghdad 12 years ago, said that if Trump is able to follow through on his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country, his late son never would have been able to come to serve the country in the military. The Khans, a Muslim family, immigrated to the United States from the United Arab Emirates.
“Have you ever been to Arlington Cemetery? Go look at the graves of the brave patriots who died defending America — you will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities,” he said. “You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”
This guy’s kid was killed by a Muslim suicide bomber in a war Hillary voted for and he’s mad at Donald Trump? Why are the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) pimping this guy’s grief on national television? The visuals are horrible – for Hillary. The guy looks like he is issuing a fatwa.
The only thing I can figure is they don’t care if it makes sense, any stick to beat a dog will do.
