Osama bin Laden’s niece, Noor bin Laden, voiced her support for the so-called ‘ultra MAGA movement’ in the United States during an appearance on Steve Bannon’s podcast this week.
Ms Bin Laden, 35, was a guest contributor to the far-right instigator’s podcast, The war roomon Monday and shared her views with her host from her home in Switzerland on the global “elite” who she said were descending on the Swiss Alps village of Davos this week for the annual World Economic Forum.
“Do you think they’re scared of this uprising or do you think they think we’ve got this and we just have to get through it?” Mr Bannon asked his guest if business leaders, government officials and other figures attending the conference should resent former US President Donald Trump’s MAGA movement.
“They have no choice but to push through, they are like a bulldozer,” she said of the international organizations that will be represented at the annual conference, comparing institutions like the United Nations and the WEF at some point to “vehicles” for a “mass surveillance state”.
“That’s why President Trump was such a big thorn and is such a big thorn and the whole ultra MAGA movement is such a big thorn to them.”
Ms Bin Laden is no stranger to rooting for the former commander-in-chief, who said in a famous interview ahead of the 20th anniversary of 9/11 that her uncle was no “monster” and only ” had a hit.”
Bin Laden created Al Qadea, a group listed as a terrorist organization by the United States and responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center which killed at least 2,996 people on American soil.
The outspoken Trump supporter went on during her interview with Mr. Bannon to pull another page from the MAGA classics, launching into an attack on the so-called “globalist” elites attending the conference in person after a two-year hiatus as responsible for the “stealing of the 2020 elections”.
“I think judging by the escalation of the attacks and the blatant wacky theft of the 2020 election and all the different efforts,” they are afraid of the ultra MAGA movement, she said.
Before closing her segment with the conspiratorial podcast host, Ms Bin Laden explained that the MAGA movement is no longer seen as a small quiet minority, but cited Mr Bannon’s frequent catchphrase, calling them “the silent majority “.
“You say we are the silent majority,” Ms Bin Laden said. “We’ve reached a critical mass where enough of us are fully aware of what they’re trying to do and enough of us that it’s not happening and I think they’re worried.”
It was Ms Bin Laden’s second appearance on Mr Bannon’s podcast in recent weeks, with her previous interview with the former Trump adviser garnering similar attention for controversial remarks.
During an April 6 segment of Mr. Bannon’s show, Ms. Bin Laden defended participants in the January 6 Capitol riot by calling them “patriots” and their subsequent criminal prosecution for breaking the law. as proof that they were “political prisoners”.
She then praised far-right Republican lawmakers who confessed their support for the Capitol rioters.
“We can be really grateful to the representatives – you know, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Gaetz and Ron Johnson among the handful who stand up and stand up and talk about these political prisoners,” Ms Bin Laden said.
Ms. Bin Laden has often tried to curry favor with Mr. Trump. In her very first interview with the American press in 2020, she told the New York Post that the country should re-elect the former US president to become a two-term leader because, she believed, only he could prevent another 9/11.
And then last summer, the 35-year-old trolled US President Joe Biden ahead of a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva by standing on a boat in the Swiss country waving a flag emblazoned with the words “Trump Won”.
