Bin Laden, that name, which should send shivers down every American patriot’s spine, is being idolized by a shocking group of Gen Z kids. Yes, you heard that right, young progressives are fawning over the mastermind behind the 9/11 terrorist attack. It’s like they missed the memo about the mass murder of more than 3,000 innocent Americans and the ongoing impact on the first responders who risked their lives. But hey, who cares about that, right? Bin Laden is their new heartthrob.
Sure, the man may have had a thing or two to say about the LGBTQ+ community and women’s rights, but hey, nobody’s perfect, right? Especially not a despicable terrorist responsible for untold suffering. And now, thanks to the grand tradition of TikTok and its habit of championing the most ridiculous of causes, bin Laden’s 2002 “Letter to America” is making the rounds – and not in a “this is horrific” kind of way, but in a “mind-blowing” awakening that these kids are lapping up like cats to a saucer of milk.
Think Osama bin Laden is a trendy TikTokers? Try #Talibanlife,
Why is this so shocking to people every young man in this country now grows a beard like Bin Laden.
That’s right I said it and y’all all look butt nasty just like him. Look in the mirror. https://t.co/kcpVBIT53w

The letter, which was originally published by The Guardian, is being hailed as a work of genius by these newfound disciples of darkness. They’re all having these supposedly enlightening moments and filming themselves as if they’ve just uncovered the greatest Netflix series of all time. It’s both laughable and horrifying that these young women are embracing bin Laden’s manifestos on Jew hatred, the United States, and the creation of Israel. Talk about being completely out of touch with reality.
Some of these TikTok sensations are even proudly comparing their discovery of bin Laden’s vile beliefs to their “deconstruction” of Christianity. It’s like they’re on a quest to abandon any semblance of logic and morality in exchange for a new, fanatical devotion to social justice madness. And instead of realizing the gravity of their statements, they’re dishing out generic clichés and dropping f-bombs left and right, as if that somehow makes their support of a terrorist mastermind more profound.
To add a cherry on top of this already absurd scenario, The Guardian took down the letter after it gained traction. And what was the response from these paragons of free speech and open discourse? Outrage over “censorship.” These kids need a history lesson, starting with Noah Webster and a dictionary. Maybe then they’ll understand what censorship truly is and where it’s most at home – hint: it’s not in the land of the free, but rather in bin Laden’s Shariah-governed dystopia.
It’s mind-boggling to see these young women – who are supposed to be the future of our nation – fall into the trap of hailing a man who despised everything about our way of life. While they mindlessly feed on TikTok’s 30-second lectures on “decolonization” and “resistance,” the rest of us are left scratching our heads at how far we’ve let this dangerous ideology seep into our society.
Now, as for the men, they’ve been instructed to sit down and keep their “toxic masculinity” in check. So, naturally, these young women have stepped up to fill the void, casting off any semblance of reason and embracing anger as their weapon of choice. It’s like the blind leading the blind, and the blind are determined to march straight into the abyss.
But here’s a thought. How about we arrange a little cultural exchange? Those who seem to have developed a newfound affection for bin Laden’s ideas could take a trip to Iran or Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. They could put their Queer and Gender Studies degrees to good use there, and finally, see what life under such repressive regimes is really like instead of idealizing it from the safe distance of their TikTok feeds.
In closing, these young women had better wake up and smell the coffee. It’s not too late for them to realize they’ve been taken for a ride on the crazy train to nowhere. And when reality inevitably hits, as it always does, let’s hope they have the humility to admit they were gravely mistaken in their flirtation with extremist ideologies.
