Honor Killings in 2008

I made this video in 2008 while working on the Ron Paul campaign. It needs some context: In Texas, a Muslim man killed his daughter because she shamed the family. FOX News wouldn’t stop talking about it because it involved a Muslim and had this lady spew emotional disgust and repeat the term “Honor Killing” as often as possible.

Wikipedia defines Honor Killing as: the murder of an individual, either an outsider or a member of a family, by someone seeking to protect what they see as the dignity and honor of themselves or their family.

I found a part of a Republican debate, where Ron Paul went toe to toe with neocon Mike Huckabee, particularly poignant. Back then, that’s what we called these militant fascists who talked about a New World Order, “neocons,” or “neo-conservatives.” A few people at the time knew the Republicans were littered with them, but the most astute understood that the Clintons and anyone associated (and later Obama) were neocons also.

I created this video to snap a few FOX News “conservatives” out of their stooper. I think only Ron Paul fans appreciated it.
