Liberals now upset that mainstream media didn't Photoshop Islamist terrorists' photos to make them look Western


Melissa Harris-Perry

(NaturalNews) How do you describe a situation where a Left-wing icon is attacking another Left-wing icon for not being politically correct enough?

That is insanity. Cubed.

Racialist MSNBC host (and college professor) Melissa Harris-Perry has completely lost her mind – she must have to in order to believe that The New York Times isn't being liberal enough.

On a recent show, Perry complained that the Paper of Record had the audacity to run a photo of San Bernardino terrorist killer and Islamic extremist Tafsheen Malik wearing a hijab. Perry said that the Times was guilty of stereotyping – essentially saying that the picture sent a message that "this is what terrorism looks like."

Well, yes, in this particular case, that is what terrorism looks like – you know, since Malik is (or was) a terrorist.

Newsbusters was equally confused by the Harris-Perry complaint:

"Damn those anti-Muslim bigots of The New York Times! But seriously, what was the poor paper supposed to do? Should the Times have photoshopped the hijab off Malik? Harris-Perry might have complained the paper was suggesting there was something offensive about the garment. Sometimes you just can't win with the PC police."

Harris-Perry was not alone in her irrational outrage. Before she issued her complaint, panelist Linda Sarsour of the Arab-American Association of New York blasted the Times, claiming she was "extremely disturbed" and found it "absolutely outrageous" that the paper had run front page photos of the inside of the apartment of the San Bernardino couple (Malik was married to fellow jihadist Syed Farook), which featured typical Islamic furnishing and associated decorations. Sarsour also suggested that the Times was sending the hidden, subtle message that "this is what terrorism looks like."

And there is this telling statement from Sarsour as well, that you, dear reader, will just have to interpret on your own:

"We went from immediately knowing from eyewitnesses that they were three white males. Which by the way multiple witnesses--three medium-built, heavy-built white males--and let's not even go there."

What, pray tell, would "there" have been, in Sarsour's warped, racially-biased mind?

Here's the craziness in its full form:

LINDA SARSOUR: "I mean, it's deja vu for me every time the perpetrators end up being Muslim. We went from immediately knowing from eye-witnesses that they were three white males. Which by the way multiple witnesses--three medium-built, heavy-built white males--and let's not even go there. And then you were talking about gun control, and Think Progress went all over the Republican candidates about 'thoughts and prayers,' not fixing the law.

"
And then all of a sudden we find out they're Muslim. Bam--gun violence is out of the question. We start talking about terrorism. And I'm extremely disturbed. I looked at the New York Times cover today. There you have a whole op-ed on gun control. Great. Right next to it is pictures from the apartment of things that I have in my house."

HARRIS-PERRY: "
Yes-s-s-s!"

SARSOUR:
"These are things that all Muslims had their house. There's nothing about that that tells you a story about what terrorism looks like. So you're telling me that when my friends who are not Muslim come into my home and see a Koran on see frames on the wall with a scripture from my religion, is that supposed to tell you something? I mean, it's absolutely outrageous. We would never do that to anyone. We didn't do that to Dear, we didn't do that to Roof. I'm tired of the double standards of how we treat Muslims when they are the perpetrators."

HARRIS-PERRY:
"That image, and also right next to it an image of the shooting suspect there in hijab. And the idea that, okay, this is what terrorism looks like, I, for me, there is a difference, and it is a material and meaningful difference, in how we, so on the one hand again, I want to be able to talk about what the thing is that is terrorism, but on the other hand, I have to reflect that this happens only for specific communities."

Left-wing pundits and advocates are the worst racists, bigots and homophobes in the country – not to mention intolerant and completely out of their minds.
