Man Who Killed Bin Laden Responds To Viral TikTok Trend Praising The Terrorist’s ‘Letter To America’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A new viral trend on China-owned social media platform TikTok includes largely younger people praising and agreeing with notorious terrorist Osama bin Laden's "Letter to America."

    The letter, which is filled with anti-Western and anti-Semitic language, is a justification from bin Laden for the 9/11 attacks, which killed roughly 3,000 Americans in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania.

    "Over the past 24 hours, thousands of TikToks (at least) have been posted where people share how they just read Bin Laden's infamous 'Letter to America,' in which he explained why he attacked the United States," journalist Yashar Ali posted to X. "Many of them say that reading the letter has opened their eyes, and they'll never see geopolitical matters the same way again. ... [and many] say it has made them reevaluate their perspective on how what is often labeled as terrorism can be a legitimate form of resistance to a hostile power."

    In one viral video, a woman said the letter is "wild" and "everyone should read it," adding that reading it has "left her disillusioned."

    Another woman said reading the letter left her reeling in an "existential crisis," and encouraged viewers to also read it. "In the last 20 minutes, my entire viewpoint on the entire life I have believed and I have lived has changed. Please read that entire letter."

    "I need you to stop what you're doing and go read a 'Letter to America,'" a male said on video. "It is literally the craziest thing I have read in a while and while I can't say that I'm not surprised, I'm pretty shocked." He then proceeded to read the following X post, which he said was reminiscent of the letter: "Under settler colonialism, any kind of resistance is branded as [terrorism] because the only acceptable violence is violence by the occupier."

    Robert O'Neill, the Navy SEAL who killed bin Laden, responded to the trend: "Deceit is a mask the Devil puts over the eyes of useful idiots."

    Others reacted, too. Politico Noam Blum said, "TikTok brain is reading a rant by Osama bin Laden, realizing you agree with him on everything, and concluding not that you need to rethink your life, but that you need to rethink your priors about Osama bin Laden."

    "Osama Bin Laden is being praised on the left for attacking America," radio host and Outkick founder Clay Travis posted to X. "And TikTok is helping these clips go viral to idiot kids. This is what happens when for a generation the left has taught kids that America is evil."

    "If you kids think Bin Laden made some good points, wait'll I tell you about a vegetarian former art student with an ironic mustache whose impassioned manifesto about the Zionist oppression of his people sparked a worldwide movement," David Burge mocked, adding, "I feel I'm gonna regret this tweet because these motherf***ers are so stupid the next Tik Tok dance craze will be goosestepping."

    Journalist Megyn Kelly zoned in on the parents of some of the younger people participating in the trend. "To the parents of all of these losers suddenly persuaded by the deranged musings of the man who murdered 3k American innocents: you failed," she wrote. "You were likely boozing, marching for some L-wing cause and/or simply ignoring your kids. You failed to teach wrong from right, a proper moral code, a love of country and perspective on America's role in the world. [Because] you failed, my kids and others are going to have to grow up battling these a**holes for the future of the United States. I have every confidence they can do it, but I resent and judge you for making it necessary as opposed to fostering a life in which they can focus solely on growth, joy, love, family, hard work and creation."

    "No point getting bogged down in it however, trust me when I tell you that the majority of Americans - this generation and the next - will fight to defeat the pernicious lunacy you've unleashed," Kelly added. "And we will win."

A majority of Americans still believe in OUR 1st Amendment guaranteed Freedom of Speech; however, at what bold point does the constitutional right to Free Speech becomes unabashed anti-Semitic Hate Speech, and while it should possibly be tolerated on our college campuses, and on the streets of mostly Sanctuary Cities, these events should be rightfully observed and scrupulously monitored ... or, not? What is your true opinion of when too much of enough is just too much, or not?
  The answer to Free Speech I don't agree with is more, and incredibly robust Free Speech.
  There is a point when Free Speech becomes counter productive to sustaining a peaceful society.
  Free Speech should only be tolerated if it represents the status quo of the highly educated orthodoxy.
  Early in life, I learned to speak only when I am spoken to.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.
