One of Osama Bin Laden’s top guys, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has a 4½-minute propaganda video up on YouTube called “To black Americans.”
Zawahiri says that jihadists are fighting the same oppressor (or “racist Crusader regime”) fought by Malcolm X. Zawahiri refers to Colin Powell and Condi Rice as “house slaves.”
Then there’s an extended clip of Malcolm X’s famous “house negro/field negro” lecture.
As a piece of persuasion, this video isn’t very impressive. For one thing, the English subtitles are hard to read. For another thing, no booty dancers.
So obviously Al-Qaeda’s “To black Americans” hasn’t attracted much of an audience. It has been online for four months... and only logged 3,400 views.
By contrast, Tay Zonday’s latest music vid has gotten 45,000 views in four days. (My boy ain’t played out yet. Go on, Tay!)
Anyways... heeeeere’s Zawi:
