Audio: Dennis Prager fisks the anti-American idiot who interviewed Ayaan Hirsi Ali

posted at 7:58 pm on July 17, 2007 by Allahpundit

I was surprised initially at how much reaction this post got, but having watched it again now, it is pretty amazing, isn’t it? After the years we’ve spent digesting Cindy Sheehan, Michael Moore, the Kossacks, how strident does your anti-Americanism have to be to make righty bloggers sit up and notice at this late date? Congrats, Avi Lewis. You’re a living cartoon.

The clips are at BTN, here and here. It’s a slow night so take advantage.

Salem is doing amazing work on BTN and Townhall. Great job, Dennis and thanks to HotAir for promoting this.

We Conservatives don’t like it when some lefty puke is rude to one of our female friends. Disagree with her, fine, but be polite … or we’ll rip your freakin’ off.

Um, figuratively speaking, of course.

We love you Ayaan! Please run for Senate!

Tony737 on July 17, 2007 at 8:12 PM

Every once in a while, Dennis just dorks out. But other times, he is laser sight accurate.

Listening to him dissect Avi Lewis live motivated me to add 2 minutes to my morning jog.

Also, this may be my own bias. But conservative women are just hotter than the rest.

The Race Card on July 17, 2007 at 8:14 PM

Allah, can you put together some kind of Ayaan Hirsi greatest hits post? She is brilliant.

BadgerHawk on July 17, 2007 at 8:18 PM

I’m a Canadian and like i said before this guy is an
absolute tool.
I know a lot of us on north side don’t share this clowns
opinion.
I still think of Canada as a great ally towards the
United States of America,and the Global War On Terror.

I consider this guy no different than
a MOONBAT LIBERAL.

canopfor on July 17, 2007 at 8:19 PM

Having listened to Dennis who I find quite the accurate moralist, then Avi Lewis I am amazed how obvious it is that the emotional , lock step, talking point focused nimrods of the secular left shows themselves so plainly.
It is this that causes me to always state no more meeting of minds, no middle of the road action. I still want partisanship and a battle ready, hard fighting, name calling Conservative base! Darn will Penn State take back my degrees now?

MNDavenotPC on July 17, 2007 at 8:19 PM

That interview rocked.
I can’t quite recall, but when the christian freedom fighter (Thats what we call terrorists, right?) shot the abortion doctor was there a massive outcry from the christian community in America that they were under attack? Or did most christians agree that the shooting was unjustified and were happy when the freedom fighter (terrorist) was brought to justice?

ctmom on July 17, 2007 at 8:49 PM

I would pay money to watch Prager debate this mental midget! This Lewis character is a perfect illustration of just what an intellectual wasteland Leftism is. He has absolutely no idea of how precious liberty is. He takes it for granted, as Ayaan Hirsi said he has always lived in freedom, so he can spit on freedom!

Gatordoug on July 17, 2007 at 8:50 PM

I believe most immigrants (legal) are like Ayaan Hirsi Ali and feel about America the same way. It’s the reason why they came here in the first place. Dennis Prager’s analysis is exactly how I feel about Avi Lewis, an anti-American idiot. With no clue about what America is about, no idea of what he’s talking about. He is an insult to himself and he doesn’t even know it.

Kini on July 17, 2007 at 9:13 PM

Great Caesar’s Ghost! We need to put this woman on Mount Rushmore. God bless you Ms. Ali.

Limerick on July 17, 2007 at 9:16 PM

That was a pretty good critique of that hater, Avi Lewis…

I remember the Canadians as being very brave. When the hostages were taken in Tehran, those embassy employees who were not at the compound when it was taken were sheltered by the Canadian diplomatic corp there in Iran and later smuggled out to safety. I remember billboards going up along Florida’s interstate highways saying simply “Thanks Canada”.

Prager is proof that morality, spoken with genuine clarity, does not need anger, vitriol and profanity to overwhelm the opponent, although I find it helps fill in the spaces of most of my posts…

Jaibones on July 17, 2007 at 9:32 PM

Does anyone think Ayaan Hirsi Ali will make many friends on the left?
/sarcasm

Kini on July 17, 2007 at 9:33 PM

This idiot avi does not represent most Canadians. He does however, represent in Canada, what he would represent in the States, namely the urban intellectual, the left-wing, progressive media man, and typically, yet ironically, for many Canadian Jews, a decidely anti-American, pro-islamic view of the world. And forget not that he is paid by the CBC, which is the Canadian equivalent of the BBC, except more left wing. His views do not surprise me. He is from the Jerry Seinfeld/Friends/Melrose Place generational niche eschewing critical thought for trendy group think. That’s his schtick.

Zach on July 17, 2007 at 9:37 PM

Here’s an expected detail from the Wikipedia: Avi Lewis is the grandson of a former leader of Canada’s NDP Party. For those who may not know the Canadian political system, the NDP is more or less a socialist party.

thuja on July 17, 2007 at 9:38 PM

I used to work as a project Engineer at a very large A&D (Aerospace & Defense) company. I used to listen to the unionized techs b!tch and complain every day. They complained about everything from the food in the Caf to the money they made.

There was a downturn and some of these people were laid off. About 6 months to a year later they were hired back and you’d swear they were different people. They found that outside Mother’s arms they made a fraction of their old salary and worked much harder for it. That I think summarizes people like Avi Lewis. They have no clue what the real world is like and how good they have it. Until they experience the equivalent of being laid-off, they’ll just continue to spit on their great luck.

TheBigOldDog on July 17, 2007 at 9:40 PM

At 10:48, littlegreenfootballs.com gets some very nice props for this link.

Quote: ‘thanks to littlegreenfootballs.which I give a free plug to because it’s one of the 5 most important websites on earth. It will be used by historians to document our era. That’s how important I consider littlegreenfootballs.com I don’t work for them.’

But Charles never actually posted a link for this story. I think HotAir ran with it and that’s why it’s grown.

‘Nother vote here for an Ayaan Hirsi Ali/Avi Lewis Vent. Oh how Michelle and Bryan (et al) will take this guy’s tiny *cough* brain apart. Hee hee!

inviolet on July 17, 2007 at 9:47 PM

Like some American liberals were, most of the CBC need to be “mugged by reality”. If all we had for information was the crap that’s allowed on Canadian TV, we’d probably hate America too, except we have the internet. I’m convinced that FNC’s swing to the left has been all about getting themselves approved for Canadian cable systems(just happened).

TBinSTL on July 17, 2007 at 9:50 PM

Avi Lewis, newly crowned the arch-liberal of Canada!

csdeven on July 17, 2007 at 9:55 PM

TBinSTL – sometimes it literally takes a mugging by reality to knock sense into liberals.

http://rightinmanitoba.blogspot.com/2007/07/oh-irony-of-it-all.html

From the article:

Linda Shewchook who was one of the victims went on to state “People who write these laws have to realize they’re leaving some people out and that’s the victims,” in reference to the fact that the young thug only received a three year sentence under the YCJA. Shewchook feels that he should have been tried as an adult.

So far so good I though as I continued to read the article. I could agree with Shewchook with her outrage at the sentence. So what is it that caused me to lose my sympathy for this victim? Perhaps it was the description in the Sun of Shewchook.

Shewchook, a former employee of a prisoner’s rights advocacy group who now works at the University of Winnipeg, said the YCJA should be rewritten with stiffer penalties available.

So let me get this straight, Ms Shewchook advocates for prisoner rights which includes reduced sentences and living conditions similar to Hilton Hotels and now is pissed that a young thug had the audacity to mug her and is only going serve 3 years.

thareb on July 17, 2007 at 10:10 PM

Actually Avi Lewis’ views are no accident of ignorance. His father is Stephen Lewis, a long time radical leftist in Canadian politics who was once a member of a radical group called Waffle. Stephen Lewis is married to a woman, if you can call her that, Michelle Landsberg, a radical feminist columnist that used to be published in the Toronto Star.

Avi, himself, is married to Naomi Klein, a radical anti-globalization activist and writer, who was born to, none other, than a draft-dodging father who became a member of an anti-nuclear activist group called Physicians for Social Responsibility. (Got to loathe those left-wing euphemisms)

Together Naomi and Avi produced a film, The Take, highlighting a group of Argentinian factory workers that shut down a plant and formed a collective. Her latest work is a book entitled “Disaster Capitalism”

Suffice to say, the whole family, not just Av,i are born and bred leftists/Marxists. They are not ignorant liberals. They are actively involved in the battle to turn our society over to Marxist principles, and because the old axiom has it that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”, they naturally come to the defence of the jihadists. Even though they are Jews. And that means being hostile to Hirsi Ali.

It all makes sense. It all adds up.

jihadwatcher on July 17, 2007 at 10:15 PM

I remember the Canadians as being very brave. When the hostages were taken in Tehran, those embassy employees who were not at the compound when it was taken were sheltered by the Canadian diplomatic corp there in Iran and later smuggled out to safety. I remember billboards going up along Florida’s interstate highways saying simply “Thanks Canada”.

If I remember, it was Canadians in either Newfoundland or Nova Scotia who took in US flights who could not land in the States after the 9/11 attacks.

jihadwatcher on July 17, 2007 at 10:17 PM

My boss is currently serving in the Marine Resrves with the CAG in Ramadi. He’s a friend of Dennis’s, appeared on his show once because his Son was once a Marine reservist as well, and they both were together in Iraq.

Allah, Brian or Michelle, he sent Dennis a great letter, would you be interested in a copy? He has no problem with sharing, and he’s a huge fan of Michelle’s.

Mazztek on July 17, 2007 at 10:21 PM

I think we reacted to that post, in part, because Ayaan Hirsi Ali is so completely the opposite of any kind of right-wing partisan.

She’s simply somebody who’s actually LIVED the things liberals love to bleat about – she’s lived in oppressive Muslim countries – and as a result, she simply appreciates freedom.

In other words, she has “absolute moral authority.” Right? Isn’t that how it works? :)

She isn’t a shill. She’s not a partisan. But she’s in a unique position to know verifiable reality. Her view of America is based on that simple, undeniable reality.

Thus, when the Canadian yokel treated her like he was talking to Sean Hannity, like it was just another left-right argument …. well, his blind ideology ran smack into her crystal clear reality.

That’s why I noticed, anyway. Ayaan Hirsi Ali didn’t need to say a word. The liberal nutcase’s reaction to reality was more than enough.

I truly wish I could remain as calm and clear as Ayaan when putting a leftard in his place. I tend to get a little passionate – and thus sometimes forget a salient point or two.

*sigh* – Ayaan, you’re my idol!

tickleddragon on July 17, 2007 at 10:56 PM

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

People like Ayaan Hirsi Ali define America–she represents why America was founded. If she chooses, or has already chosen, to become American, our gain would be immense.

I really hope our government, and her local community, spare no expense in her safe and freedom–unlike the Dutch Govt. that trumped up charges against her in an effort to appease the wolves at their door.

Montana on July 17, 2007 at 11:16 PM

Listening to all of this, I am still just…..astounded beyond mere words at the unbelievable foolishness and arrogance of Avi Lewis.

The word “ass” was made specifically for such as him.

Avi Lewis was made to look like a fool all throughout the interview. I do agree with Prager that the only time Ali stumbled was when the Lib brought out ‘old faithful’ and the “stolen election” schpiel.

Defector01 on July 17, 2007 at 11:49 PM

People like Ayaan Hirsi Ali define America–she represents why America was founded.

Yes. Yes indeed she does.

Professor Blather on July 17, 2007 at 11:51 PM

I listened to the Ayaan/A#@#h*l* interview a while back. We conservatives must me gratefull for the great woman who are fighting our fight for us. Thanks Michelle, Ayaan and the many others. Funny too, in my local newspaper’s letter to the editor how often it is the women who make me proud.

SIJ6141 on July 17, 2007 at 11:56 PM

It is this that causes me to always state no more meeting of minds, no middle of the road action. I still want partisanship and a battle ready, hard fighting, name calling Conservative base!

And you’re right. It’s what I’ve been saying for years too. Please note that it’s not that Avi disagrees with Ayaan, it’s that he has absolutely nothing intelligent to contribute. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. He’s a parrot, an answering machine, a taped recording of liberal shibboleths and bumper sticker slogans. At no point, no point whatsoever does he substantiate anything he’s saying in the least.

Because he’s dumb. He’s just plain ignorant.

And that is who so-called “moderates” want to reason with, to reach out to and to compromise with? How do you reason with something that doesn’t have any? How, exactly, do you debate a dumb animal? Is there such a thing as a “liberal-whisperer” that we could enlist to do the job?

It’s pointless. They’re a complete waste of oxygen and most certainly an utter waste of effort to talk to.

Misha I on July 17, 2007 at 11:58 PM

[Lewis represents] ironically, for many Canadian Jews, a decidely anti-American, pro-islamic view of the world.

Spot on jihadwatcher. And for too many American Jews as well. As Jews are way overrepresented in the professoriat as a percentage of the total, and the professoriat tend to sound more or less like Lewis–you get my point. Oh the rude awakenings that lie in store, once sharia takes hold in France . . .

Am I correct that Dennis Prager said they were going to get Lewis on his show? Oh, man. Mop–meeet floor. It will be an interruptathon for Lewis. A real signature trait of leftists is they never let you finish a sentence. (It’s their only hope after all–that your critique of them will not be able to fully cohere in the mind of the listener.) He did it a few times to Hirsi Ali. Prager needs to nail that ground rule down really hard right from the very first instance of it. “I will give you a chance to talk, Mr. Lewis, but you will return the courtesy. If you interrupt me again, I will merely mute you until I am finished.”

Boy was she nice to him. All those times when she could have said, “I see you declined to answer my question again, Mr. Lewis. . . ”

ALI! ALI! ALI! ALI! ALI! ALI! (Remember that chant?)

As another Ali would say, “She is well beautiful.”

You close your eyes and she sounds pretty. yo.

smellthecoffee on July 18, 2007 at 12:03 AM

You can’t debate a guy like Avi. He’ll just spit out random thoughts, look smug as if he said something worthwhile and look superior. No, true fact can penetrate that thing that most of us call a mind. He is like the lowest of apes, if he looks into a mirror he won’t recognize himself.

SIJ6141 on July 18, 2007 at 12:07 AM

RushBaby on July 17, 2007 at 10:47 PM

Nothing like a nice, brisk fisking.

smellthecoffee on July 18, 2007 at 12:09 AM

Particularly after what jihadwatcher said at 10:15PM, I doubt Lewis will deign to appear on Prager’s show. And, as SIJ6141 indicated, I suspect that even after his being devastated by Ali, he never noticed it, and afterward thought she was just another shallow victim of right-wing duping.

eeyore on July 18, 2007 at 12:29 AM

Avi Lewis is an arch moron.

I have been raised among arch morons, so I can spit on them.

I laughed out loud because I resemble that comment.

I’m very lucky that everyday I get to stream Dennis’ show on my computer at work. I find myself yelling at my computer more often than I care to admit. That’s why I love Dennis’ calm picking a part of stuff like this.

I heard the beginning of this show first, and I KNEW that HA would have something about it. Sure enough, I was right. I came here looking because Dennis said you had to see Ayaan’s face when he made the cliche comment. Hearing it is not the same as seeing it. Ayaan is SO beautiful inside and out. Her gentle speech cuts through all this guy’s hyperbole. I wish I could do that. Just to be honest, if it were me, I’d probably end up spewing a bunch of four letter words at this guy every chance I got. An image of Iraqi style news debate comes to mind.

Sultry Beauty on July 18, 2007 at 2:08 AM

Kini on July 17, 2007 at 9:33 PM

Going down the list:

She’s black but doesn’t think the US is racist.

She’s female but doesn’t think the US is sexist.

She’s Muslim but doesn’t think the US is Islamophobic.

She’s an immigrant but she doesn’t think the US is a horrible abuser of human rights.

In short, she’s not just going to be friend devoid on the left, she’s on their hitlist.

BKennedy on July 18, 2007 at 4:27 AM

You know it’s interesting that Lewis is instinctively anti-American, yet on the CBC site where the Ali interview is posted, I noticed a promo for feedback on previous interviews:

http://www.cbc.ca/onthemap/fullpage.php?id=115

I did see the interviews, but he apparently is also anti-Sandinista (because Ortega has banned abortion) and anti-Hugo Chavez (I don’t know why)!! He is actually accused of being a “neo-con” by one commenter.

netherman79 on July 18, 2007 at 7:20 AM

I still think of Canada as a great ally towards the United States of America,and the Global War On Terror.

canopfor on July 17, 2007 at 8:19 PM

I have aquaintances in certain areas of Canada who are all very supportive of America and our war on Islamofascist terrorism. They are as embarrased by their government’s liberal bias as we are distrustful of it.

Wow!! Not a single post from Sinner.

captivated_dem on July 18, 2007 at 9:41 AM

Hi all. I don’t usually post that much here-but this topic is irresistable. I would just like to let you know that while Avi Lewis certainly represents a fairly large percentage of Canadian liberals-he is really quite exceptional because of his pedigree-which has been alluded to.

His father-Stephen Lewis is a socialist communist who has made a life-career out of whining about AIDS in Africa, and has enjoyed government-appointed patronage jobs and pork-barrelling his whole life. He married the disgusting witch, and ‘mamma’ of Canadian feminism Michelle Landsberg and of course they are both self-hating Jews.

Avi Lewis married none other than NAOMI KLEIN-the disgraceful, hateful author of “No Logo”, who has also made a career out of bashing America. These two losers crash society parties, uninvited and also made a documentary that was widely mocked by even their biggest fans. They are the prized little piggies of the Canadian socialist industry-and not representative of the mainstream.

They have made it a family industry. Oh-the other daughter is a lesbian who has had two children now via turkey basters, and is IIRC, working at daddy’s new NGO-the Stephen Lewis Foundation. All in the family as they say.

Not all of us Canadians are like these. Many of us are disgusted by it-but try as we might-we haven’t yet managed to cut off taxpayers money for this incredible bullshit.

Just an FYI. Sorry to rant.

WriterMom on July 18, 2007 at 10:33 AM

That’s weird. My rant didn’t post…

It sickens me that the smug Avi Lewis has Jewish blood in him.

Hilts on July 18, 2007 at 10:56 AM

Quite often I listen to liberals speak and I can’t help but to think about how much good it would do them to sit down and talk for 10 minutes with someone like Ayaan Hirsi Ali. I think this interview is great because Avi Lewis is exactly that person I would recommend to have a conversation with her. I respect him for having the ba**s to have his beliefs challenged by the cream of the crop and not settling for some softball interview with someone who will just regurgitate his liberal talking points. I respect the fact that he didn’t just shout her down and talk over her like I know so many others would have. He simply asked his condescending questions and gave her ample time to think then respond fully. Can you imagine Olberman having Ayaan Hirsi Ali on his show? It would never happen and we all know why it would never happen. And if, for some far fetched reason, he does ever have her on his show we know darn well that he wouldn’t let her get two words in for fear of being made a fool of.

Avi Lewis chose to have an interview with someone who was smart, tough, would not back down and would very likely make him look foolish (as she did). Good for him. I liked watching this interview.

Zetterson on July 18, 2007 at 11:02 AM

Can you imagine how entertaining it would be to have Avi Lewis interview Mark Steyn?

Zetterson on July 18, 2007 at 11:04 AM

WriterMom on July 18, 2007 at 10:33 AM

WriterMom, awesome post! Good stuff.

Zetterson on July 18, 2007 at 11:08 AM

Writer Mom (and others): I was thoroughly disgusted when I watched the initial interview with Ms Ali and Asshat Lewis. We Canadians are known for our politeness and this guy was just rude and ignorant. His grandfather, David Lewis was not only the leader of the NDP but one of the founders of, what was initially called the CCF (later changed to NDP as too close to it’s mentor the CCP). Keifer Sutherland’s grandfather, Tommy Douglas was another of the founders. Like many of our “cultural elites” he is very left wing and like most, the whole family lives off the rest of us through patronage appointments and jobs with NGO’s, the CBC etc. In other words, a family that lives off the rest of us and our hard work but that never tires of telling the rest of us how to live and think. I believe the word for that is parasites. Morons is another good word for this family.

oilbertan on July 18, 2007 at 11:08 AM

Steyn would eat Lewis up before breakfast, and wash him down with a latte.

WriterMom on July 18, 2007 at 11:14 AM

Avi Lewish is quite a fan of the Palestinians (shocking-I know).

Here he is hucking a crockumentary on Palestinian terrorists in Israeli jails.

A request came my way through a contact for people to sit in at the studio audience-which had 1 token Jew on the panel for discussion. My friend said it was the first time he had seen real, raw antisemitism with his very eyes. He (a non-Jew) was so freaked out that he could barely talk about it.

The studio audience was stacked with keffiyah wearing terror-lovers.

That is the CBC-and that is Avi Lewis.

WriterMom on July 18, 2007 at 11:18 AM

oilbertan-yes the Lewis-Lansberg clan is a parasitic moonbat dynasty. Absolutely.

WriterMom on July 18, 2007 at 11:24 AM

Back in the day(70s), some of us called the CBC the Canadian Broadcorp and Castration.
Canadians at home and abroad (that’s me!) are all too familiar with the arch-liberal bilge that the extended Lewis family has been defecating while accumulating government perqs and power over the last century or so.
It was a pleasure to watch Ms. Ayaan Hirsi Ali firmly and quietly put the smack-down on the latest Lewis know-nothing.
Randy

williars on July 18, 2007 at 12:03 PM

Every GOOD and POSITIVE thing said about Ayaan.

I emphatically agree…! Another hero to add to my long list. A real American.

Every accurate and aweful thing said regarding that insufferable punk, Lewis.

You guys said everything that occurred to me, and things I wish I’d thought of. Good job.

And just for the record… If I weren’t married, I’d be trying to find a way to court that lady. I’d savor the opportunity to be her bodyguard. I’d take a bullet or twenty, for her, just as quickly as I’d take one for our MM or MKH. I can already hear a chorus of “Amen!” being shout across the Conservative blogasphere.

She’s Muslim but doesn’t think the US is Islamophobic.

I believe she used to be a Muslim, no longer is. Haven’t read her book, so not sure what her beliefs are at this time.
