While appearing on MSNBC — the official network of insane liberal rage, hate, and stupid lying liberal propaganda — alleged “comedian” Dean Obeidallah compared former President Donald Trump to Osama bin Laden and falsely claimed that Fox News is Al Jazeera. Oh, he also said during his Sunday appearance that Trump supporters are terrorists.
“We are 20 years from 9/11. I’m Muslim. My community suffered harshly after 9/11. We were told, you’re either with us or you’re with the terrorists. That’s the same question that should go to Fox News and the Republicans,” he said.
“Are you with the United States or Trump’s terrorists? That’s the question. It is that simple. I look at Fox News now. They are the Al Jazeera of America after 9/11. Al Jazeera, wrongly though, was described as the mouthpiece for terrorism. They were not celebrating Bin Laden. They were not defending the terrorists. But Fox News is. Fox News is literally having on Donald Trump, who is the Osama Bin Laden of January 6th,” he added.
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
Capehart, of course, agreed.
There’s only one problem. None of this is even remotely true. For starters, bin Laden killed nearly 3,000 people in the worst terror attack on US soil.
Here’s a video of his outrageous comments, courtesy of Newsbusters:
Mark Finkelstein posted a transcript of the segment in question:
LEONARD PITTS: What is there — what would you sacrifice, you know, for America? What would you sacrifice for the truth? That’s a question I would like to ask, frankly, all the Fox characters and all of the Republican leaders.
. . .
JONATHAN CAPEHHART: To answer Mr. Pitts’ question about what would you sacrifice. I would say that the folks at Fox, and a lot of people on Capitol Hill in the Republican party, have sacrificed their souls.
. . .
Sophia [Nelson], you and I both know that whiteness is a helluva drug.

DEAN OBEIDALLAH: What happened on January 6th was an act of terrorism. That’s not my words. That’s the words of Christopher Wray, the FBI director. That I really urge us all to see this through the prism of terrorism. We are 20 years from 9/11. I’m Muslim. My community suffered harshly after 9/11. We were told, you’re either with us or you’re with the terrorists.
That’s the same question that should go to Fox News and the Republicans. Are you with the United States, or Trump’s terrorists? That’s the question. It is that simple. I look as Fox News now. They are the Al Jazeera of America after 9/11. Al Jazeera, wrongly though, was described as the mouthpiece for terrorism. They were not celebrating Bin Laden. They were not defending the terrorists. But Fox News is. Fox News is literally having on Donald Trump, who is the Osama Bin Laden of January 6th.
And I can say, as a non-white person, who looks white but I’m half Arab, that the idea that the media won’t call white people terrorists makes us less safe and it’s fundamentally wrong. So, I’m hoping the media, like officer Daniel Hodgson testified, the attackers were terrorists. That’s not hyperbolic. That’s the correct definition under federal law.
And brothers and sisters of the media who are not of color, call the white attackers what they are. They are terrorists. And you’re either with us or with those terrorists who want to ooverthrow our government.
CAPEHART: I’m just gonna — I’m going to leave it right there, and just say, amen.
“Obeidallah styles himself a comedian. Perhaps calling Trump the equivalent of the mastermind of the most deadly terrorist attack in US history is what passes for comedy in Obeidallah’s loony-liberal neck of the woods,” Finkelstein noted.
Let’s call this what it is — a lie. It’s a blatant lie designed to do one thing — foment violence and division as if there’s not already enough division in the country.
Perhaps Obeidallah wants to see American blood spilled in the streets. Because that’s what he’s pushing for, whether he wants to admit it or not.
