After Scolding Trump, Now It’s Khizr Khan Making a Mockery of His Son’s Sacrifice

-By Warner Todd Huston

The father of a slain U.S. soldier who happened to be a Muslim made himself a temporary icon for liberals when he went on stage at the Democrat convention and attacked Donald Trump. But now that father, Khizr Khan, is going on the Sunday shows and making a mockery of his own son’s sacrifice by claiming Islam has “nothing to do” with terrorism.

Mr. Kahn lost his son, Captain Humayun Kahn, in Iraq in 2004 and in an attempt to shore up their military bonafides, the Democrats pushed him up on stage during their convention in Philadelphia to wag his finger in GOP nominee Donald Trump’s face.

With a wife who befitting of the second class status of women in Islam was standing at his side and not allowed to say a word, Mr. Kahn insisted that he and Muslims like him are “loyal” to the United States and as proof offered the story of his son who fell in service to the country in Iraq.

Waving a booklet of the U.S. Constitution, Kahn attacked Trump saying, “If it was up to Donald Trump, [Kahn’s son] never would have been in America. Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims. He disrespects other minorities, women, judges, even his own party leadership. He vows to build walls and ban us from this country.”

Kahn ended his attack on Trump yelling, “You have sacrificed nothing. And no one.”

As he waved the Constitution, the bereaved father also yelled at Trump to look in the document to find the words “liberty” and “equal protection under the law,” the latter in a nod to religious liberty apparently.

But, here is the thing… potential immigrants do not have a right to expect that the U.S. is not allowed to screen them out because of their religion, their nationality, or any other factor. The U.S. Constitution does not force the federal government to apply Constitutional rights to foreigners waiting at our door to enter the country.

Still, Mr. Kahn’s powerful appearance at the DNC convention has been one of the only parts of the Hillary rehabilitation show that made any real news.

Sadly, now Mr. Kahn is running around on the Sunday political shows making a mockery of his strong performance on stage and–worse–making a mockery of his son’s sacrifice by claiming that Islam has “nothing to do” with terrorism.

Kahn made this untrue and absurd statement on CNN with Jim Acosta on Sunday, July 31.

Here is his full statement on the matter:

In addition to this, there was in the speech that my good wife asked me to refrain from saying, I wanted to say we reject all violence. We are faithful, patriotic, undivided loyalty to this country. We reject all terrorism. She asked me not to say that because that was not the occasion for such a statement. We say to his ignorance, I address his ignorance, that the dirt effect, the most effect of the menace of terrorism have been Muslims in the world, Muslims hate this menace of terrorism as much as any other place. It is our duty to keep this country, our country, beautiful country, safe. We have always thought of [it] that way, we will continue to do our part to keep it safe and beautiful. What he cites in the name of Islam, and all that — that is not Islam at all! I wish he would have, somebody would have put something in his head that these are terrorists, these are criminals, these folks have nothing to do with Islam.

This is outrageously dangerous nonsense. Attempting to distance Islam from terrorism will do nothing but cause the U.S. to misdirect its energies and thought process in ways that will only lead to more young men going into battle and losing their lives just like Mr. Kahn’s son did.

Islam is at the very core of the world’s terrorism problem and imagining it isn’t makes us all less safe and will do nothing but prolong this conflict and put more sons in danger.

In fact, Donald Trump hit that nail on the head with a tweet in response to Kahn’s attack.

There is another dangerous aspect to Khan’s attack on Trump. Mr. Kahn’s son was not killed by Donald Trump. Mr. Kahn’s son was also not killed by Americans. Kahn’s hero son was killed by Muslims. Further, Kahn’s son was killed by Muslims in a war that Hillary Clinton voted for… and yet there he was, onstage, defending Hillary, trying to absolve Islam from fault, and attacking a man who had nothing whatsoever to do with sending his son to his death.

And what do we get out of the media? Well, they’ve finally found a military person they want to celebrate. We haven’t seen the media go this gaga for a military family since it spent all those years propping up the crazy Cindy Sheehan.
