Al Jazeera Video Mocks Americans as Fat, Racist, Violent

Qatar-based media company Al Jazeera released a video on its social media site AJ+ mocking Americans as they celebrated American Independence Day.

Not surprisingly, it wasn’t well received in the USA.

The slickly produced video features an electric guitar playing “America, the Beautiful,” as young actors tout several areas where the United States leads the world.

It starts off sounding laudatory, mentioning that America leads the world in Olympic medalists, Nobel laureates, and billionaires. But it then turns sarcastic.

“Not to brag, but we have the most incarcerated people in the world,” a woman in an American flag and bald eagle T-shirt says. “God bless the prison-industrial complex.”
