Eli Clifton joins Scott to discuss his latest piece with Jim Lobe, “Pompeo: Springtime For Irano/Islamophobes.” Clifton describes how the neocons have direct access to the Trump presidency and how they’ve whipped up a consistent stream of Islamaphobia in the United States. Clifton then details how Mike Pompeo has framed Middle East conflict in the terms of a Christian holy war and why his appointment to Secretary of State is foreboding.
Discussed on the show:
- Frank Gaffney
- “Fear, Inc.: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America,” by Eli Clifton (Center for American Progress)
- “He wanted to build Trump’s border wall. He was just charged in the bombing of a Minnesota mosque.” (Washington Post)
