The Guardian's Propaganda Film About Dearborn


Recommended Posts


It presents itself as being a balanced documentary. In reality, it's a shamelessly slanted piece of work that pretends to be seeking out the truth about Dearborn, Michigan, which once had the world's largest auto plant and now has the world's largest mosque. Only sixteen minutes long, it was commissioned by the Guardian, made by noted documentary filmmakers Katharine Round and Ben Steele, and was just posted on that newspaper's website.
In the beginning we meet Sarah, an affluent, pretty, U.S.-born young woman of Lebanese descent. She recently graduated from law school – and wears a hijab. We're patently meant to see her as charming, well-spoken, reasonable – a person who not only represents no danger to American society but who is, in fact, an asset. We meet her friends, too – all in hijab.
Sarah complains about a store greeter who ignored her. “In this country I feel our minds are almost being oppressed,” she says, “because we can't be ourselves, in a way.” (This from somebody who's wearing a head covering that symbolizes oppression.):snip:
