In a newly published article, Daily Caller Deputy Editor J. Arthur Bloom uses entirely economic arguments to claim that Sharia Law is “as American as apple pie.”
Bloom first points out the fact that under Sharia Law, the practice of profiting off of lending money (collecting interest) is a sinful activity.
“Let’s start with a basic outline of Islamic finance. Islamic finance is not too different from most moralistic approaches to finance. It views money as a neutral mediator of transactions. For that reason, it views the ability to acquire more money by simply lending money (riba, in Islamic parlance) as a barren and hence sinful activity – it is proclaimed haram (prohibited) under Sharia law.”
This is true, and as Bloom also points out, most religions throughout history have similar views on profiting off of loaned money, including the Catholic Church.
But the thing that separates Islam from other religions is the influence their religion has on public policy. This is due to the fact that Islam is not just a religion, with there being no separation between the religious and the political in the Muslim world.
For this reason, Bloom points out that under Sharia Law, the practice of “equity ownership” is encouraged, resulting in less debt buildup.
But in Bloom’s entire article, he never once mentions the oppressive aspects of Sharia Law.
He doesn’t point out the fact that women are oppressed under Sharia Law, with their testimony being equal to only half that of a man.
Bloom also doesn’t point out the fact that homosexuality is punishable by death in countries that practice Sharia Law.
BLP reached out to Jacob Engels, a gay conservative activist, who was disgusted by the article.
“The fact that The Daily Caller, which used to be a beacon of hope for conservatives and alternative media is willing to publish trash like this is curious,” Engels told BLP. “One must question if there was financial compensation, or if they just wanted to be edgy. But as a gay American it is abhorrent. What’s next, are they going to write a guide on stoning women, or throwing gays off of buildings?”
BLP reached out to Bloom to ask if The Caller was paid by any outside interest to write the article, and he replied:
“No, but the Koch Brothers’ secret pro-Islam task force offered me a literature professorship in the future Emirate of the United States.”
OOPS: CNN Legal Analyst Suspended for Indecent Exposure During Zoom Call
A liberal journalist and CNN legal analyst has been suspended from his position at New Yorker magazine after he appears to have exposed his penis during a Zoom call.
Jeffrey Toobin reportedly revealed his genitalia during a teleconference call between New Yorker employees and personnel of a New York radio station. He says that the exposure was totally unintentional, and that he wasn’t aware his camera feed was streaming to other people.
The CNN pundit, who is known for delivering Russian collusion conspiracy theories, apologized for the wardrobe malfunction in a statement provided to Vice. “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” said Toobin.
New Yorker spokeswoman Natalie Raabe went on to confirm that Toobin has been suspended as the matter is investigated. A CNN representative also confirmed that the media personality is on “time off” from on-air appearances with the channel.
This was almost certainly an unintentional mistake, although it’s an embarrassing and careless one.
I’d urge all the guys out there to avoid ever placing themselves in this situation, but most don’t need to be reminded to keep their pants on. One possible way to minimize the likelihood of this occurrence is doing so during teleconference calls.
Vice is now reporting that Toobin was caught outright masturbating during the zoom conference call.
“The two sources described a juncture in the election simulation when there was a strategy session, and the Democrats and Republicans went into their respective break out rooms for about 10 minutes. At this point, they said, it seemed like Toobin was on a second video call. The sources said that when the groups returned from their break out rooms, Toobin lowered the camera. The people on the call said they could see Toobin touching his penis. Toobin then left the call. Moments later, he called back in, seemingly unaware of what his colleagues had been able to see, and the simulation continued.”
