MSNBC’s ‘No-Fly List Is Islamophobia’ Poster Boy Arrested as Part of ISIS Cell @chrislhayes

The enemedia won’t have me or any of my esteemed colleagues on these shows, but they welcome savages killers — to whine about islamofauxbia.

The more right we are, the more shunned we are. Think about that.

“MSNBC’s ‘No-Fly List Is Islamophobia’ Poster Boy Arrested in Turkey as Part of ISIS Cell,” By Patrick Poole, PJM, November 23, 2015

A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media’s attacks against the U.S. government’s no-fly list for “unfairly” targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison — arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell.

It’s a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long’s cause was being championed by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.

His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed the story that Long wanted to return to his native Oklahoma from his current home in Qatar to visit his ailing mother but couldn’t because he was on the TSA’s no-fly list. They said his case represented institutional “Islamophobia.”

Long’s cause got international attention when Glenn Greenwald published an article at The Guardian saying that Long was “effectively exiled from his own country.” Kevin Drum of Mother Jones branded it the “Kafkaesque World of the No-Fly List.” CAIR has 22 article entries related to Long’s case on its website.

After several months of wrangling between his CAIR attorneys and the Department of Homeland Security, Long was temporarily removed from the no-fly list and allowed to return to Oklahoma.

Once home, however, he was still subject to FBI surveillance according to claims he made during a press conference with his CAIR handlers.

After an incident with local police and the FBI, Long was apparently placed back on the no-fly list, preventing his return to Qatar.

That prompted even more outrage from the far-Left media and garnered him an appearance with his CAIR handler on Chris Hayes’ MSNBC show:

    So, the estrogenated, beta male Chris Hayes and his knee grow lover are inolved in jihadi.. To say I’m shocked would be an over statement… Here they are cuddling after doing the dirty deed… Is that anything less of a man than “MAN” on MSNBC?
    … I think NOT….

  • Nipperdoodle

    Does any one even watch MSNBC anymore? They are such a non-issue I don’t even have them on any of my cable ‘favorites’ lists. Maybe this major screw-up will shut them down for good (we should be so lucky)!

  • Lia

    MSNBC? Do people listen to or watch that twaddle? I heard Rachel Maddow once – she’s far removed from any sort of reality.

  • Derek

    Why isn’t this on Fox yet? They need to call this out too. How does Chris Hayes get a free pass for spreading his nonsense and apologizing for an ISIS terrorist?

  • Drew Matthews

    (Drew the Infidel) — If Chris Hayes says something in the forest but nobody hears, do the trees still laugh?

    • DnMj

      count on it.

  • The prince of the power of the air. The ultimate liar and deceiver. Only a strong spiritual power could cause the premier liberal pundits in our country, almost without exception, to aggressively support, even promote an ideology completely at odds with every issue that is critically important to them. They can’t be blind to Islam’s history regarding women, child rape, torture and killing of gays – the only thing they share is a fascist tendency to squash opposing views. Yet despite knowing Islam is the opposite of Liberalism in almost every way, still they remain caught in their delusion. It’s almost as if they’re hypnotized. I believe it is spiritual. The Bible says in the last days those who reject God will be allowed to fall under a strong delusion. Isaiah says pity those who call bitter sweet and sweet bitter, exchange the truth for a lie. I find the MSM views on Islam to be representative of just that.

    Well, now I guess the left will claim the right pushed this guy so far he had no choice than to join ISIS.

    • Don Grantham

      You’d think the liberal media would get dizzy from all the spinning…

  • joker

    This guy is shifty!

  • Mahou Shoujo

    It is rather pathetic the depth the progressive socialist lame stream media will sink to, just to peddle their papers.

    • Don Grantham

      One picture, thousand words, yadda yadda yadda…

        Social democrat day at the beach.

      Like just about all other right-wingers, Pam Geller won’t EVER admit she screwed up, getting this anonymous-sourced bullcrap story from Pajamas Media.
      It’ll be everyone else’s fault, (Obama included,) but “Us conservatives can do NO wrong!” :eyeroll:

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Pam Geller is a lying POS. This entirely fabricated nonsense has now been thoroughly debunked. Where’s her apology for smearing a US Military veteran? Hmmm? A**holes.
