Avi and Hirsi

Avi Lewis is a Canadian TV commentator who is, to put it mildly, considerably progressive.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a best-selling ex-Moslem author with an amazing life story who is currently living in America. Although she is brilliant, eloquent, black, Somali, and a woman, she is almost invisible among American MSM outlets. The problem for Ms. Ali is that her message does not fit the multicultural mime that has become standard fair within the MSM. But back to Avi Lewis.

On his TV program, “On the Map,” Avi Lewis interviews Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Using almost every Liberal argument that is espoused when discussing Islam and the USA, he goes on the attack.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, with a soft voice and calm demeanor, takes .. him .. apart. It’s wonderful television and available on YouTube . Take a look.

The money quote occurs at the end of the interview, with Avi Lewis commenting on stolen elections, rampant homophobia and blatant racism in the USA. It's as if he memorized a library of Leftist tropes.

Hersi Ali, responds in her soft, accented voice, "I lived in countries that had no democracy … You grew up in freedom and you can spit on freedom because you don’t know what it is not to have freedom.”

The interview ended with that comment.
