At Two Circles, a popular site in India for Muslims, comes a curious article by Rehan Ansari.

According to the site’s “About” page:

We will not publish articles that is racist, sexist or makes baseless allegation against a person or community.

Well, that’s nice of them, but let’s just see about that, shall we?

I was working in the same cafe on Rehov Azza I am now when news of the March terrorist attack in Jerusalem – the powerful bomb which exploded next to two crowded buses at the Binyanei Ha’uma building in central Jerusalem killing Mary Jean Gardner and wounding 50 others – reached me, shortly followed by the calls, text messages, and emails from friends and family making sure I was okay.

As a conservative, I think you have to judge people as individuals. White, black, conservative, liberal, male, female — at the end of the day, each person deserves to be evaluated on his actions and his character. That being said, there are some people who look at the world a little differently. They may think we’re a patriarchy or wonder why men behave the way they do. When I hear someone taking a shot at “men” on the whole…let’s just say I have a bit of a different take on the subject.

Here’s my theory of how the world works. Men, on some level or another, begin by doing EVERYTHING that they do because they think it’s the best way to appeal to women. Then, after awhile, activities can take on a life of their own.

From Accuracy in Media‘s Allie Duzett:

On MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, PBS host Tavis Smiley had a lot to say about Donald Trump and race. Specifically, Smiley argued that Trump has been “race-baiting” as a way to “[play] to the worst in the tea party.”

“Let me say a word about Donald Trump, since you raised it so beautifully. I said over a year ago that this presidential race, Lawrence, was going to be the ugliest, the nastiest, the most divisive, and the most racist in the history of this Republic. I did not know that that race to the bottom would begin so quickly,” Smiley said. He went on to say how he came to make that prediction: “I saw it coming because it’s pretty clear given how the tea party has acted, given that Donald Trump is now playing to the worst in the tea party, that this would be possible.”

Smiley argued that it is “clear” to him that tea partiers are racist:

There have been some antics they’ve engaged in that have made it clear to me, showing up at rallies with guns and the Secret Service working overtime to protect this president, more threats against his life than any president in the history of the nation [note: this claim has been debunked], indeed, presidents combined—the evidence is pretty clear that they would do anything and say anything in order to make sure that he does not get reelected.

“This is not a campaign commercial for Barack Obama. It is to say that we live in a nation where we’ve got to get back to some sense of civility,” Smiley went on.

Smiley continued, calling Trump a race-baiter for expressing his opinions:

Donald Trump is playing to the worst fears, the worst anxieties, the worst race-baiting that I’ve ever seen in a campaign when he suggests that Obama is the worst president, will go down as the worst president in history. Do you know how many bad presidents we’ve had? And this guy is 2 years in and he’s regarded as the worst president? It’s a bunch of nonsense. But one last thing beyond Donald Trump. I’m disappointed in Mr. Trump. I think frankly and respectfully that this is beneath him.

Smiley did not point to an example of Trump linking President Obama’s policy failures with the color of the president’s skin.

Media consumers can be grateful that Smiley was so open about his opinions. Reporters’ views tend to influence their coverage of events, and media consumers should know that Smiley’s coverage at PBS comes from an anti-tea party bent that finds racism in those who support small government and disagree with President Obama’s agenda.

Just when you thought you could breathe a bit easier with the speculations about the President’s birth certificate being put (mostly?) to rest, along comes another can of worms in the form of the release of an immigration file on Barack Obama‘s father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. The file includes a lot of information that paints a different picture than many (like this?) we have seen before.
