Taliban: American Ami Horowitz displays dishonest Social Experiment
“It comes as Mr. Horowitz performed a social experiment asking US college students to help him raise money for the Taliban “to kill Americans” – with a majority of students agreeing with or donating to the cause.” (i) [Not true… here is why…]
The selected image by ‘Sky News’ for the video presentation is misleading.
The image does not reflect the Hard Left. It does reveal that other societal problems exist in the USA, but for the moment, I do not have the time to investigate this Demonstration objective.
The ‘Sky News’ video is titled… “Hard-left seek the ‘destruction’ of the United States.”
Allan Ivarsson comments… This ‘Sensationalism’ at the expense of accuracy title hosted by ‘Outsiders’ Rowan Dean’ is misleading. It incorrectly suggests that a large percentage of Americans want to destroy their own country. Not even Marxist Socialists want to destroy their own country. Marxists want to change it to a wrong thinking anti-freedom ideology societal country to give the Marxist Activists control of a country, but they are not self-destructive except by emotional stupidity.
So, what is this trial video presentation about?
The YouTube presentation makes the following comments…
The hard left wants to see the destruction of the United States of America because it “offends them to their core,” says filmmaker Ami Horowitz.
It comes as Mr. Horowitz performed a social experiment asking US college students to help him raise money for the Taliban “to kill Americans” – with a majority of students agreeing with or donating to the cause.
Mr. Horowitz labelled the reactions from fellow Americans as “bizarre” and “disturbing”.
“I could not have been more explicit … I could not have been more open and obvious of what the use of proceeds was going to be for,” Mr. Horowitz said.
“I want to be clear – this is not just some isolated group of people that say, ‘we hate America’ – this really identifies what the hard left is all about.”
“They want to see the destruction of the United States of America because it offends them to their core – it is revenge for what they see as the original sins of this country.”
The End of the YouTube explanation of the video opinion contents.
A.I. comments… The Outsiders Panel with host Rowan Dean were all smiling… they saw nothing wrong with this ‘Social Experiment’… they made no comment but to encourage the Horowitz presentation with enthusiasm.
When I saw it in my Australian home, I was not smiling, I was not impressed by the dishonest presentation allegation made by Ami Horowitz that the people he interviewed were ‘Hard Left’ characters.
The people he interviewed which he selected as a filmmaker to present on film were clearly by their near silent response all naïve young people, ignorant and not experienced in life and did not speak strongly about the idea of donating to the support of the Taliban. I doubt they know anything about the culture and history of the Taliban. There are a lot of people who will give donations for causes simply because they are asked, never bothering to understand what the money will be used for. These people are sadly too trusting and just give because they think it is the right thing to do.
One of the people offered $50.00 and Horowitz responded by giving him a hug. Why would you hug someone that donates to kill Americans? Not one of these Americans willing to donate $5, $10 and $50 made any strong aggressive remarks cheering on the “Must Kill American’s by Taliban” which Horowitz encouraged as he claimed it to be a Social Experiment.
We could justifiably question whether Horowitz is working undercover as Marxist Socialist to identify how vulnerable Americans are… so that they can be conquered by enemies like the anti-freedom Taliban that in this societal case cannot reach America as a force. But other existing enemies in America can from within.
Yes, I know… probably not… but we can never be sure of those who play games with such ‘Dark Thinking’ Socialist Experiments.
The deceit of the Horowitz presentation is worse… he left out of the interview all of the people that rejected his idea to arm the Taliban to kill Americans. He left out of his film the abuse he received for asking for donations to kill Americans. And he left out all the ones that said nothing and just walked away disgusted by his dangerous thinking suggestion. His methods were not clever, he was wrong and he did not expose anything. All he did was talk to young naïve people.
Ami Horowitz conclusion for the film that the ‘Hard Left’ wants to destroy America is void of any proof in this pointless false knowledge allegation presentation that did not display any evidence that Horowitz was right. Just the opposite his so-called social experiment tabled deceit and thus lied to the people who watched it. I for one was not a believer of his claims.
Shame on Sky News ‘Outsiders’ and Host Rowan Dean for tabling such false knowledge as being a humorous experiment. I am not smiling.
