El Trumpo is finally being used in a terrorist training video and the media couldn’t be more happy.

Here’s TIME magazine:
An al-Qaeda affiliate released arecruitment video Friday that includes an excerpt of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump announcing his call to temporarily ban all Muslims from entering the U.S.
The video, apparently the first to include footage of Trump, juxtaposed clips of the presidential candidate and al-Awlaki saying “the West will eventually turn against its Muslims citizens,” according to the Times, while also including footage of al-Awlaki calling for attacks similar to that of the Fort Hood shooting in 2009, in which Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan killed 13 people and injured more than 30 in Killeen, Texas.
But, as NRO columnist Stephen Miller points out, they’re completely ignoring some details:
[Editor’s note: Originally we published the tweet, which Miller has since deleted because he was being attacked by spambots over it.]
Here’s how TIME is vaguely reporting the Black Lives Matter appearance:
According to the New York Times, al-Shabab—the Islamic militant branch of al-Qaeda in Somalia—included the clip of Trump along with footage of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American imam and recruiter for al-Qaeda who was killed in 2011, as well as clips of white supremacists and protests over police use of force in the U.S.
Funny how they don’t mention their name, isn’t it?
Apparently it only matters when a right-winger is used for “recruitment” in a terrorist video because it helps the left because that’s when the media RUNS to prove them right. But when Obama or Hillary or black activists are used for recruitment, they ignore it.
Feel free to rail on Time magazine about this, and if you want to find us more examples of the media double standard on this issue, let us know in the comments!!
There has been some question about the veracity of the claim that Hillary was in the al-Shabab video. Stephen Miller sent me a very detailed explanation of how he got the screenshot of Hillary in an al-Shabab video.
Entire video that I saw had the film reel slots (on the side) you see in screen caps from my tweet. The screencaps are not manipulated by any way.Video is now removed from YouTube (YouTube TOS or viewer removed it). My screen caps were taken without manipulation. In video Is Anwar Al Awaki speaking. Next was insert of Trump. Next was insert of alwaki and then Hillary and then the Black Live Matter clip. I did not link to to this video directly in my tweet because of Twitter TOS and especially new TOS in light of San Bernardino terror attacks. Twitter just recently announced new conduct rules. I wasn’t about to have my account banned because I linked to an Al Qaeda in Somalia recruitment Video (Worth nothing, no media source on twitter linked to the original video either). I even stated this the day of or after if you follow the thread.
