Aslan doesn't speak that way against Islamic terrorists--only our president who speaks out against Islamic terror is a piece of s**t and an embarrassment as far as he's concerned.
When NBC Nightly News' Brian Williams said the network would not be "relaying the president's retweet" of a Drudge Report tweet that shared the news of the London attack because it was "unconfirmed." (Williams also said that he barely escaped the knife attack with his life.)
Aslan offered a "translation" of what Williams was saying.
Aslan hosts CNN's "Believer" and touts himself to be a religious scholar and not a journalist at CNN.
But who really is Reza Aslan?
He calls himself an Islamic scholar but doesn't seem to have a clear understanding of Islam, according to a real Islamic scholar, Robert Spencer.
In "Scholars" Reza Aslan and Mia Bloom Spencer indicates that Aslan is a professor of creative writing at the University of California, Riverside; and Mia Bloom, another self-described "Islamic expert" is a professor of security studies at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.
These academic positions hardly qualify either of them to be called scholars of Islam.
Both Aslan and Bloom are "rudely contemptuous of anyone who would dare question their knowledge of Islam, but both have just made the same spectacular error--the kind of error that only someone with no actual knowledge of the relevant material would ever have made."
They tweeted out a quote from the first caliph, Abu Bakr, that they believe proves the Islamic State is violating Islamic law. But of course, the opposite is true if you actually understand the text.
So what else is there about Aslan that might disturb a Westerner?
For one thing, according to an August 5, 2014 article by Robert Spencer, Aslan comes out strong for Hamas.
Spencer says that Aslan is a board member of an Iranian lobbying group, National Iranian American Council dedicated to eradicating the Jews, and he even tried to pass off Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a liberal reformer, calling for us to negotiate with him as well as Hamas.
"Aslan ought to know better, but he may not, as he has never shown himself to be very bright. Although he is quite arrogant and supercilious, this foul-mouthed media darling keeps revealing his abysmal ignorance in interview after interview. He continually makes howling errors of fact, including his recent ridiculous claim that the idea of resurrection "simply doesn't exist in Judaism," despite numerous passages to the contrary in the Hebrew Scriptures. He has also referred to "the reincarnation, which Christianity talks about" but later claimed it was a "typo.""
In another instance in which he used the "typo defense" to weasel his way out of it, he claimed the Bible story of Noah was barely four verses long. He soon corrected it to forty.
The Bible story of Noah is 89 verses long.
Spencer then takes him to task for his misuse of English such as using "than" for "then," "clown's" for clowns," and the guy is allegedly a creative writing professor.
Finally, in another article titled Reza Aslan eats human brains but it's unlikely to help, Spencer talks about how the "scholar" featured himself on CNN eating human brain tissue.
But it's unlikely to help, Spencer says, because of all his errors of fact and Aslan's breathtaking stupidity.
Did you know that Aslan believes Marx and Freud gave birth to the enlightenment?
This is one of the braintrusts of CNN.
Why do you think I call them "Certainly Not News?"
