As the eighth and final episode of "All-American Muslim" airs and the series wraps up, it does so as a failure. Last week's 9/11 episode once again failed to appear on the Cable 100 rankings. Viewers were willing to tune in an hour earlier to TLC's "Hoarding: Buried Alive," but they changed the channel to anything and everything when it was time for "All-American Muslim."
What were viewers willing to endure rather than experience the Shiite version of the Jersey Shore? They tuned in to National Geographic's "Alaska State Troopers," Tru TV's "Lizard Lick Towing" and Animal Planet's "Finding Bigfoot," but you couldn't get them to watch "All-American Muslim." Which just goes to show that we're a nation of Islamophobes. Or that even people with bad taste in television have standards.
The dirty little liberal secret is that progressives don't watch "All-American Muslim" either. The show only exists as an Islamophobia talking point. Every time an advertiser drops it in favor of "Finding Bigfoot," the progressives crow that once again they have proven that we are a nation that hates Muslims and loves Bigfoot.
