Iranian-American Hoda Katebi May Not Be ‘American Enough’ For Some (Video)

Wowwww. You know how when you were a kid, your parents taught you what to say aloud and what NOT to say? Even if it is what you are thinking?

An Iranian-American woman was told she didn’t “sound like an American” on live TV.

NO! We cannot continue to allow people call our people’s, Americans’, citizenship… loyalty… whatever… into question because they do not think it lines up with what they think Americans should think, look like, sound like, etc.

She is Iranian-American. Ethnic heritage of Iran; citizen of the United States. End of debate. Unless you want to be ignorant about it and believe that only some American citizens are ‘real Americans.’

Police were on hand, and it could have gone badly but… well, I won’t spoil the clip. However, what I will do is embed The Young Turks commentary on the clip above. Sure, they have a boldly liberal slant on almost all things; but I always admire the way they come with a combination level-headed delivery and passion in their interpretation. Same here. The original clip, which I’m betting you will love, appears after the jump. But TYT head honcho Cenk and analyst Ana above… They will make you think. Good stuff!

One of the anti-Muslim rallies that happened in the country didn’t have the best turnout. A protest in Ohio only attracted one demonstrator. She was greeted by Muslim protestors who wanted to educate her on their religion. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.
