On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that terrorist leader Osama bin Laden wanted to recruit black and Latino Americans, according to documents obtained in the raid of his compound.
“He exhorted followers to explore ways to recruit non-Muslims ‘who are oppressed in the United States,’ in the words of one official — particularly African Americans and Latinos — and to assemble a plot in time for the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks,” Greg Miller and Karen DeYoung wrote for the Post.
That revelation offered a view of bin Laden’s mindset, which, according to Fox News Channel “Red Eye” Greg Gutfeld, is similar to how the American left thinks of minorities. During his “Gregologue” segment on his Friday show, Gutfeld pointed out the parallels.
“So according to files found in the raid, bin Laden wanted to recruit non-Muslims from the United States,” Gutfeld said. “Officials discovered messages pushing followers to recruit African Americans and Latinos obviously stealing the idea from MoveOn.org. So why blast the Latinos? Well, bin laden recognized them as quote, ‘oppressed in the United States,’ end quote. And here we have another example of how bin Laden was no different than your typical tenured professor or that chick who gave me head lice back in college. Let’s face it. Anyone who believes there is oppression in the United States is an angry militant or a fat bald guy who still wears Rage Against the Machine T-shirts.”
Gutfeld dismissed the notion that there are “oppressed” people in the United States, and said bin Laden had fallen victim to a false view. “Basically it is the default premise for tools trying to faking an intellect they do not possess,” he continued. “But you got to forgive bin Laden for thinking this way. After all it is an assumption also shared by elitists the world over. Yet the concept of oppression in America is alive and kicking in the freest country ever because bitter news editors, dim-witted hip-hop artists and vacuous pop stars keep the lie alive.” According to the “Red Eye” host, if America had a so-called oppressed demographic, there wouldn’t be such a demand for the people wanting to enter into the country. “The fact is there is no line to get out of the United States – only a line to get in,” Gutfeld said. “And no one waits in line to get oppressed, unless of course it involves a large woman in leather brandishing an electric paddle. Perhaps that was the real frustration of bin Laden and like-minded intellectuals who agree with him – that no matter how much you, there is so much more to love. So, I say to the terrorists, good luck recruiting among our oppressed because even among the unhappiest among them, they have a really good time. And if you disagree with me, you sir are worse than Hitler.”
