‘DREAMER’ PROMOTED BY DURBIN LAUGHS ABOUT USING US FLAG AS PROP FOR ‘MESSAGING’
A prominent “Dreamer” activist named Alaa Mukahhal took to social media to laugh about her cynical use of the American flag as a prop for “messaging” after her story was highlighted by Illinois Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin.
In 2012, Sen. Durbin took to the floor of the Senate and held up a gigantic photograph of a smiling young woman wearing a Muslim hijab with an American flag in the background. He introduced her as Alaa Mukahhal, a Kuwaiti-born ‘Dreamer’ activist whom he described as being ‘of Palestinian descent,’ and who was brought to the country illegally at a young age by her parents, went on to become an honor student, get a degree in architecture and now needed a path to citizenship so, Durbin said, she could fufill her American dream. Durbin even went so far as to feature Alla on his own official webpage.
Durbin read from a letter Alaa wrote, saying about herself:
“I’m an asset to this country, a resource, and I want to make good use of my degree.”
Durbin closed his Senate Speech about Alla saying:
“In the finest American tradition, Alaa has become an activist. She has stepped out to introduce herself to America, so we know who these Dream Act students are.”
A look her Facebook page paints a different picture of Alaa than Sen. Durbin’s glowing ode: she’s a potty mouthed, politically correct, Israel hating radical activist who drops F bombs and politically correct buzzwords with equal acumen.
After Sen. Durbin held up the photo of her with the US flag featured prominently, Alaa took to her Facebook page to chortle about how the flag wasn’t there to show any love for the United Stated — a country she said she hated when she came here — but a PR prop.
On February 3, 2012 she said:
Did ya’ll notice the flag in the background of the pic? That was no coincidence #messaging #lol
The photo that Dick Durbin held up mocked patriotism. It was a completely cynical use of American iconography in order to serve a propoganda agenda. Alaa not only brags about it, she laughs about.
