When I first saw this video, I wasn’t sure what to feel. Mostly I felt offended. I understand she isn’t wearing an actual flag, but after 9/11 and all the terrorist attacks that have occurred, it strikes me as being done in very bad taste. Saba Ahmed went viral because she wore a hijab on Fox News fashioned to resemble an American flag. She was discussing the issue of radicalized mosques and arguing the fact that you should not shut them down because a terrorist belonged to or founded one. Yes, you should. Katrina Piarson strongly agrees with me and took exception to Ahmed’s protestations. If a mosque has terrorist ties, it should be investigated and if the leaders or a preponderance of members are terrorist connected, that mosque should be shut down. The authorities would do that to other churches as Pearson points out. Mosques should not get special treatment, in fact, they should be scrutinized much more because they are a magnet for Islamic radicals and terrorists.
Saba Ahmed took the world by storm when she recently appeared on Fox News in order to discuss the idea, posited by Donald Trump, of closing down mosques in the wake of the Paris attacks.
It wasn’t her words that took over the Internet, however. It was what she was wearing.
Even more interesting? Saba Ahmed is a Republican, though she hasn’t always been one.
She spoke to The Slot and discussed her transition from Democrat to Republican:
“I switched parties in 2011,” she said.
“The more I studied my party platform, the more I realized that I aligned with Republican values more than Democratic ones.
I couldn’t justify abortion, for example, with what Islam preaches.
So I changed parties, although it’s been very challenging. They haven’t exactly been welcoming.”
Ahmed went further, suggesting that Muslims, in general, have much in common with the Republican party:
“We have so much more in common with Republicans.
We have conservative values: pro-life, in favor of traditional families.”
