Noor bin Laden, the niece of deceased Sept. 11 terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden, has spent all of her life distancing herself from and condemning the radicalism of her uncle, yet she now finds herself being linked to him all over again.
Why? This time it’s happening because she’s a Trump supporter.
“How ironic that I spent the past 20 years of my life condemning Islamic terrorism and rejecting what my name stands for, only to be compared to these very terrorists — and all for the great ‘crime’ of supporting the President of the United States, who himself has done more to fight the scourge that is Islamic terrorism than any other President in modern history,” she wrote this week in a column for Revolver News.
The ones making the comparison are the throngs of “tolerant” leftists who’ve decided that because of the storming of the U.S. Capitol, every Trump supporter is a veritable Al Qaeda terrorist, Ku Klux Klan member, white supremacist, you name it.

Over the weekend, for instance, Obama era Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal implied that the “Make America Great” movement itself is no different than Al Qaeda.
“I did see a similar dynamic in the evolution of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, where a whole generation of angry Arab youth with very poor prospects followed a powerful leader who promised to take them back in time to a better place, and he led them to embrace an ideology that justified their violence. This is now happening in America,” he said.
Of course, this hyperbolic — and arguably extremist — rhetoric is nothing new.
“Sadly, we’ve almost grown accustomed to the insults, bullying, yelling, and harassment. The Hitler and Nazi comparisons are so frequent they have become banal, never mind the President’s repeatedly-ignored condemnations of ‘white supremacy’ or his stellar record with minority groups,” Noor noted.
“However, this past week the president’s detractors reached a new, despicable low even by their own standards. … The wickedness is enough to make one’s head spin. All these lies must stop.”
The truth, she continued, is that Americans, particularly Trump supporters, “are the most loving, kind and warm people on the planet,” as demonstrated by their willingness to accept her as one of their own. The good ones, that is. The bad ones on the fringe right and mainstream left are a different story.

“I am living proof that Americans don’t judge anyone on the color of their skin or any other immutable characteristic but on the content of their character, as the countless kind notes, letters, and posts on social media sent to me can attest and for which I am so grateful,” bin Laden wrote.
Another truth, she added is that the relatively small number of extremists who stormed the U.S. Capitol are in no way, shape, or form a representation of the tens of thousands of Trump supporters of various races who rallied peacefully in D.C. on January 6th.
“The media spread the lie that rally attendees were ‘white supremacists,’ but in reality Iranian, Chinese, and Cuban Americans were in attendance, among many other ethnicities, all united as AMERICANS, highly distressed at the direction their country of adoption has taken. Everyone was singing the national anthem, many with tears rolling down from their eyes,” she wrote.
Moreover, the president never called for violence or rioting.
Nevertheless, the “Stop the Steal” rally that preceded the widely-condemned storming of the U.S. Capitol is now being used to “further vilify President Trump” and to “justify a crackdown on individual liberties and ostracize Americans who want to defend their Constitution and thus preserve their God-given rights against these clampdowns,” bin Laden argued.
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, a liberal, has echoed the same point:

“With this latest plot, they are effectively trying to criminalize patriotism and spin it as terrorism. The problem is not that patriotic Trump supporters are becoming like Al Qaeda. The problem is that the Deep State, via their weaponization of the US Government to impose crackdown measures on its citizens, actively seeks for America to become more and more like East Germany, Communist China, or worse,” Bin Laden continued.
“Indeed, many are publicly calling for a secret police aka ‘domestic spy agency’ to monitor ‘domestic terrorists’ (as if that isn’t already in place to a large extent) as a result of this ‘insurrection’ on the Capitol by ‘Trump supporters’.”
This is true.
No speculation is needed. Those who wield power are demanding it. The only question is how much opposition they will encounter.

The tragic irony, she added, is that the ones who’ve behaved and continue to behave like domestic terrorists are the “heroes” of the left, from the Democrat Party-endorsed BLM/Antifa extremists who were allowed to wreck whole neighborhoods to the far-left activists who’ve targeted Trump supporters for death.
But despite the smears and hurdles Trump supporters have faced, bin Laden remains confident in their ability to eventually overcome.
“One of President Trump’s most precious gifts has been to reignite the great American Spirit and to remind Americans what they had been taught to suppress: pride in their heritage as the greatest nation in the history of the world. The movement he started isn’t going anywhere, on the contrary, it’s growing — and the millions of Americans who continue to support him know it is also up to them to reclaim their right of self-governance,” she wrote in concluding her piece.
“And while their enemies deride them, I personally feel incredibly proud to stand with Patriots as they unite to restore American Greatness and fight for a new dawn of freedom for us all. They have my undying gratitude for what they have already achieved and unyielding support as they continue on this journey.”
