She is an extremely talented Muslim American women who has competed for our nation in the Olympics as a fencer.
Sadly, while Muhammad should be a source of American pride, she is actually a source of national embarrassment.
Muhammad has in the past argued that America is a hateful place where Muslims often feel unsafe, she has expressed support for a terrorist who murdered innocent people, she has made a joke out of the Islamic penchant for murdering nonbelievers, and she has spit venom and hate at our President.

Apparently, none of that matters to famous toy manufacturer Mattel, because they’ve just announced that they’ll be creating the first-ever Muslim Barbie doll based on the likeness of Muhammad.
In a statement from the company Sejal Shah Miller, Barbie’s vice president of global marketing, argued that Muhammad is an “inspiration” to girls everywhere.
“Ibtihaj is an inspiration to countless girls who never saw themselves represented, and by honoring her story, we hope this doll reminds them that they can be and do anything,”Miller said.
We are so excited to honor @IbtihajMuhammad with a one-of-a-kind #Barbie doll! Ibtihaj continues to inspire women and girls everywhere to break boundaries. #Shero #YouCanBeAnything #GlamourWOTY pic.twitter.com/oV0e6ClgL6

Muhammad confirmed the announcement by cheering on the news that girls everywhere could now play with a doll that celebrates the Muslim ideals of the superiority of men and the inferiority of women.
“Thank you @Mattel for announcing me as the newest member of the @Barbie #Shero family! I’m proud to know that little girls everywhere can now play with a Barbie who chooses to wear hijab! This is a childhood dream come true .”

This is what we’ve come to folks.
An American toy company wants American kids to play with a doll based on a person who speaks poorly of her nation, speaks poorly of her fellow citizens, and speaks poorly of her President. Not only that, she has spoken in support of terrorists and spoken out against the foundational beliefs of our nation…
And many on the Left look at her as a “hero.” (Or #shero.)
