Erick Stakelbeck of the Christian Broadcasting Network joined fellow conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles yesterday, where they wondered why John McCain and Lindsey Graham have “sided” with the Muslim Brotherhood. Wiles said that they are “carrying out the instructions of their master,” and like President Obama, “are in the pockets of radical Muslims.”
“This country is being converted while we watch into an Islamic bastion,” the TruNews host warned, “it’s frightening.”
She made the false claim while criticizing the Michigan Department of Human Services for having an Arabic-language food assistance application and help-line. Rios also warned that Michigan is “brimming with Islamists”:
You may remember that President Obama ordered the resettling of thousands of Palestinians right after he became president, he brought them over at our expense and I don’t know if they all went to Michigan but tons of them did. Of course before that Michigan, certainly the Detroit area is just brimming with Islamists; it’s pretty frightening actually. I think it is frightening because they are Islamists and they are in the heart of our country, and now they are qualified for food stamps as well. We know that in Michigan, Muslim men have multiple wives even though we don’t allow that in this country. They do still practice it so they go in and sign up for food assistance…. Is Arabic going to be the new language—how many languages are we going to have that are going to be officially acknowledged in America?
Of course, her assertion about Obama resettling thousands of Palestinians was based on a discredited chain email.
As both FactCheck.org and Snopes.com point out, Obama—like President George W. Bush before him—did authorize funding to help Palestinian refugees, but not to resettle them in the United States. The money would go to groups providing emergency food, medical and housing aid, but did not include provisions on migration or resettlement. In fact, the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, which was in charge of the money, told FactCheck.org, “We don’t resettle out of the West Bank and Gaza, full stop.”
Since Michigan has close to 200,000 Arab-American residents [PDF], it isn’t unreasonable that the state has an Arabic-language food assistance form.
The majority of Arab-Americans are Christian, but of course the facts wouldn’t stop Rios from using the first myth about mass-resettlement of Palestinians to create a second conspiracy theory: that Obama is now giving food stamps to radical, polygamous Islamists.
Even after losing their lawsuit and the completion of construction, anti-Muslim activists are now asking the government to seize the year-old mosque.
The appeal to the Tennessee Supreme Court to shut down and confiscate the mosque follows a rashofattacksandthreats that have been directed at the ICM.
Bob Allen of the Associated Baptist Press reports that ICM opponents refer to the mosque as a threat to public safety:
Mosque opponents in Murfreesboro, Tenn., want the county to seize a newly constructed Islamic Center and turn it over to someone else.
J. Thomas Smith, an attorney for citizens asking the Tennessee Supreme Court to overturn an appeals court decision that allowed occupancy of the new 12,000-square-foot Islamic Center of Murfreesboro last November, told The Tennessean there would be several acceptable remedies should his clients prevail.
“I think the county would step in and have someone else take it over," Smith said.
An application for appeal filed July 29 asks the state’s high court to overrule a May 29 opinion of the Tennessee Court of Appeals that notice of the May 24, 2010, meeting of the Rutherford County Regional Planning Commission was adequate according to the state’s open meetings law.
That reversed a June 1, 2012, ruling by local Chancellor Robert Corlew III that The Murfreesboro Post, a free-distribution weekly newspaper that carried notice of the meeting in which the planning commission approved plans for the ICM to construct a mosque just outside the Murfreesboro city limits, did not meet the standard requiring that such legal ads be purchased in a newspaper with “general circulation.”
While the lawsuit’s main argument is that citizens were denied proper notice to voice their objections before the project’s approval, it also objects to Corlew’s refusal to allow the testimony by two expert witnesses called to testify about alleged “Sharia-Jihad” risks related to the Islamic congregation that had been meeting in a smaller facility within Murfreesboro for about 30 years.
“The issue of the risk to public safety from the Sharia/Jihad teaching and practices of a regional Islamic training center such as the ICM was the major factual issue dealt with by the Court in its November 2010 opinion,” the Supreme Court document says.
Corlew said testimony by former Assistant Secretary of Defense Frank Gaffney about “red flags of terrorism” connected to the mosque was inadmissible, because Islam is a religion and entitled to the same right to construct a building as a church.
A spokesperson for the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office said she was unaware of any criminal complaints against the new mosque.
Mosque members cannot say the same. Even before construction someone vandalized a sign at the future mosque site by spray painting it with the phrase "Not Welcome." A second sign vandalism occurred later, and finally somebody set fire to heavy construction equipment parked on the lot for site clearing.
In 2011, the Islamic Center received a bomb threat in a profanity-laced phone call threatening that a bomb would be placed in the facility on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. In June, Javier Alan Corre of Corpus Christi, Texas, apologized to the imam and mosque leaders and pleaded guilty to a federal charge.
Corre, 25, said he had been drinking and wasn’t thinking clearly when he made the call, and that he understands that all Muslims are not terrorists.
American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer yesterday alleged that former congressman Anthony Weiner is running for mayor in order to “create an opportunity for more jihadist activity” as part of a Muslim Brotherhood plot, led by his wife Huma Abedin. Fischer, who on Monday said that Abedin seeks to “destroy Western Civilization,” claimed that Weiner is running for mayor in order to “pull back” on the NYPD’s surveillance of the city’s Muslim community and aid “Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood and their agenda to exterminate and destroy Western Civilization.”
Brooke Goldstein of the Lawfare Project is trying to use the attention surrounding the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal to warn that his wife and Clinton aide Huma Abedin is a secret Muslim Brotherhood operative. While on Fox News, Sean Hannity and Monica Crowley eagerly agreed with Goldstein’s claim that that Huma Abedin is tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda.
However, Goldstein didn’t get such a favorable response on Fox’s Red Eye, where host Greg Gutfeld and other panelists laughed at her attempt to resuscitate the discredited smear campaign against Abedin.
“Why is Weiner so un-attracted to Huma Abedin? Perhaps it’s because she is connected with Islamists who want to kill us!” Goldstein said, before alleging that Abedin “poses one of the greatest national security threats of this administration.”
Goldstein then alleged that Abedin “knows” about her husband’s sexting ways but won’t leave him because of her Muslim Brotherhood ties, or something.
WorldNetDaily’s Diana West is out with a new column entitled “Huma Abedin: Muslim Brotherhood Princess.”
Of course, since this is WorldNetDaily after all, she somehow managed to link this to Obamacare.
West maintains that the health care reform law means that the Communists were the real winners of the Cold War as the “totalitarian” law creates a “super-state” that will destroy the Republic.
She argues that the “cover-up” of Huma Abedin’s status as “a veritable Muslim Brotherhood princess” is part of a plan to shield Americans from the “Muslim Brotherhood penetration of the federal policy-making chain”: “[Michele] Bachmann was crucified, by Democrats and Republicans alike for asking urgently important questions about national security.”
With our guards down to the Marxist-Muslim conspiracy, Americans will become complacent to the supposed Islamic infiltration of government and the dangers of Obamacare: “don’t worry. We ‘won’ the Cold War. Obamacare, here we come. At this rate, we’ll declare ‘victory’ in the so-called war on terror and, before you know it, become a leading outpost of the caliphate.”
Nationalized health care was one of the first programs enacted by the Bolsheviks after they seized power in 1917. Nearly a century later, the U.S. enacted “Obamacare.”
Who won the Cold War again? This is one of the questions I work over in my new book, “American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character” (St. Martin’s Press). Can we realistically claim liberty and free markets triumphed over collectivism when today there is only a thin Senate line trying to fend off Obamacare’s totalitarian intrusions into citizens’ lives? We see perhaps a dozen or so patriots led by conservative ace Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, gallantly mustering forces to defund further enforcement of this government behemoth aborning. (Call your senators and ask them to join – or tell you why they didn’t at the next town hall.) How can we maintain that the republic endured when a centralized super-state has taken its place?
So, once more, who really won the Cold War? The question is better framed when we realize that the battleground where the Free World met Marx was also psychological. Consciously or not, we struggled against an insidious Marxist ideology that was always, at root, an assault on our nation’s character.
The most recent manifestation of victory over the American character shows through the Anthony Weiner-Huma Abedin scandal. This scandal is a paradoxical double whammy of both exposure and cover-up.
True, the barbs of Huma’s ambition – as naked as her husband’s dirty pics – have broken through the gauzy chatter. But cut off from context, they, too, end up perpetuating what is, in fact, the great Huma Abedin cover-up.
It is not enough to analyze Huma Abedin as a “political wife.” Abedin is also a veritable Muslim Brotherhood princess. As such, the ideological implications of her actions – plus her long and privileged access to U.S. policy-making through Hillary Clinton – must be considered, particularly in the context of national security.
If the Abedin-Muslim Brotherhood story rings any bells, it is probably because of Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. Last summer, Bachmann, along with four other House Republicans, raised the issue of Huma Abedin among other examples of possible Muslim Brotherhood penetration of the federal policy-making chain. They asked inspectors general at five departments, including the State Department, to investigate their concerns, but nothing happened – nothing, that is, except that Bachmann was crucified, by Democrats and Republicans alike for asking urgently important questions about national security.
This made the entire subject, already taboo, positively radioactive – with Huma Abedin becoming the poster victim of this supposed “McCarthyism” redux.
End of story. Never mind facts. Never mind also that in his day, Sen. Joseph McCarthy was asking urgently important questions about national security, too.
But don’t worry. We “won” the Cold War. Obamacare, here we come. At this rate, we’ll declare “victory” in the so-called war on terror and, before you know it, become a leading outpost of the caliphate.
On yesterday’s broadcast of the 700 Club, Pat Robertson once again suggested that President Obama is a secret Muslim. Robertson asked CBN terrorism “expert”/sports reporter Erick Stakelbeck, “Do you think Obama is a crypto-Muslim?” Stakelbeck replied that Obama is “revolutionary leftist” who, like the Occupy movement, is working with “hardcore Islamists” to bring down “Judeo-Christian western civilization” and “traditional America.”
Last week, Bryan Fischer called on Americans to "get busy" and start having more children in order to stave off the rise of immigrants who will take over the culture.
Guest-hosting for Fischer today was Iowa-based Religious Right radio host Steve Deace who issued his own call for Americans to get busy otherwise by the year 2030, the globe is going to be overrun by some 20 million radical Islamic jihadists who would put Adolf Hitler's Nazi army to shame.
"Who's going to stand along-side your children and grandchildren," Deace asked, "when those jihadists target them?"
"We've got to make sure our kids get married at a younger age and start living out the birds and the bees right away and often. Indeed. The reality is this whole thing called Western Civilization might hinge on the Duggars":
Yesterday's TruNews radio broadcast with Rick Wiles was entirely dedicated to an interview with right-wing anti-Islam activist Walid Shoebat and his son Theodore during which the three of them attacked ... Glenn Beck!
That's right, according to the Shoebats, Beck is a practitioner of "Chrislam," meaning that he is luring his audience away from true Christianity and into a dangerous Islamo-Mormon deistic universalism with the help of Religious Right leaders such as James Robison, Franklin Graham, and David Barton.
As Theodore explained, Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church of Latter-Day Saints, considered himself to be a second Muhammad, which is why, Walid said, LDS members will not proselytize to Muslims since "basically they have the same faith":
Walid Shoebat: Glenn Beck isn't really calling for Christianity. He lies when he says 'I'm a Christian, I believe in salvation through Jesus Christ' because he, number one, denies the Trinity; number two, he's a deist. In other words, he believes Muslims and Mormons and all the cults together, Buddhists, believe in God and everybody should conform to this deistic view in belief in God. Why? Because we have a more important thing to deal with and that is the salvation of the country as a nation.
Theodore Shoebat: Why is Glenn Beck so fascinated with universalism? Why does he keep pushing universalism? Because it is part of his religion. People need to understand this about Mormonism. Mormonism is an extreme version of Chrislam. Joseph Smith observed the most extreme form of Islam you could ever imagine. In 1855, the earliest leaders of Mormonism, of the Latter-Day Saints, got together specifically to exalt the Prophet Muhammad. Joseph Smith stated that Muhammad was a prophet of god and that Muhammad suffered just as I have suffered; he paralleled himself to Muhammad. And in a very famous speech he made, the speech called 'Al-Koran or The Sword,' Joseph Smith stated 'in this generation, I will be the second Muhammad. Where it was in his generation the Koran or the sword, it will be in this generation Joseph Smith or the sword.'
Walid Shoebat: The Latter-Day Saints church has sought to respect Islamic laws, that is sharia - that's the thing that Glenn Beck claims to be fighting - and traditions that prohibit conversions of Muslims to other faiths by adopting a policy of non-proselytizing in Islamic countries in the Middle East. In other words, Mormons are not allowed to proselytize to Muslims in the Middle East. Why? Because basically they have the same faith.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is still reeling from Attorney General Eric Holder’s attempt to cast aspersions on his asparagus, and took to the House Floor today to accuse the Justice Department and intelligence agencies of working with Muslim Brotherhood front groups.
Gohmert, who earlier claimed that Americans may need to use their guns to prevent the establishment of Sharia law, claimed that the Council on American Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America are both “front organizations for the Muslim Brotherhood” and “want Sharia law to be the law of the land, not our Constitution.”
While Gohmert argued that the Fifth Circuit Court “confirmed” CAIR and ISNA’s Muslim Brotherhood allegiance, the court actually removed their designation as unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial and cleared them of such a status.
The congressman even alleged the military is ignoring and refusing to “recognize” the problem of green-on-blue attacks in Afghanistan. “We need to address the political correctness that is blinding our agencies and blinding our military of its ability to see who the enemy is because it’s getting people killed,” Gohmert said.
An event in Eastern Tennessee last week sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council, meant to be a discussion of “public discourse in a diverse society,” was taken over by a crowd of anti-Islam protesters that spilled out of the building.
Among the protesters, of course, was Pamela Geller, who, according to a video posted this weekend, grabbed a bullhorn and warned the audience of the “enemy” media who “shill for Islamic supremecists,” public schools that “marinate” children’s “brains in leftist, toxic fumes” and the “tools” at the Department of Justice, which she claimed is a “de facto legal arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Geller went on to claim that her free speech rights were in danger, threatening, “Without freedom of speech, peace-filled men must resort to violence. And we don’t want to!”
As Little Green Footballs notes, pay close attention to the spelling of the sign behind Geller.
Geller: What we’re seeing is a complete disinformation campaign, an obfuscation, a covering up by the ene-media. They are the enemy. They shill for Islamic supremecists and jihadist-aligned groups, and we have to leapfrog over that information superhighway.
Audience member: The Common Core curriculum is being shoved down our throats in this state!
Geller: You’ve got to fight back, ma’am. You’ve got to get on the school boards. You’ve got to get involved. Let me tell you something, we are living on the fumes of the Greatest Generation that defeated evil. That’s what we’re doing. This generation has to fight, and our children have been completely compromised in the public school system, where they inculcate them, they marinate their brains in leftist, toxic fumes.
Geller: The freedom of speech is a line in the sand, because without freedom of speech, peace-filled men must resort to violence. And we don’t want to! They came and they want to criminalize speech that’s inflammatory. Really? So, the whole New York Times and the L.A. Times and ABC News, they gotta go to jail. Who decides what’s inflammatory? If you read my Twitter feed, if you read my Facebook comments, they call me the most vile names, and really the death threats, I have a file this big. You know what, it’s free speech.
Enough already. Enough already with the nonsense. It’s a way of silencing critics of Islam, it’s a way of imposing the Sharia. That’s what they do. And these tools, and that’s what they are, these tools in the Justice Department, which has become, by the way, in the Obama administration, a de facto legal arm of the Muslim Brotherhood…
The Far North Dallas Tea Party posted a video this week of a PowerPoint presentation that Cathie Adams, president of the Texas Eagle Forum, gave recently on “Radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Unsurprisingly, Adams sees the influence of “stealth jihad” everywhere in American society – including in the Republican Party. In her speech, Adams claimed credit for personally bringing down the candidacy of Amir Omar, an Iranian-American Republican who ran for Congress in Texas in 2006. She also railed against former Bush administration official and conservative activist Suhail Khan, wondering, “Where did he come from? How did this man get here? Did he overstay a visa?” (The short answer, if she really wants to know, is that he was born in Colorado, so no.)
But Adams saved her true vitriol for anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist, who has provokedthewrath of anti-Muslim activists for his marriage to a Muslim woman and his efforts to reach out to Muslim conservatives. Adams warned that although “oftentimes we like what he says about economic issues,” Norquist is in fact “Trouble with a capital T” and is “showing signs of converting to Islam himself.”
Her evidence for Norquist’s secret conversion? “As you see, he has a beard.”
It looks like the American Family Association isn’t the only group pushing the patently false claim that Muslim-Americans are exempt from the new health care reform law.
The Traditional Values Coalition is now telling members that “Islam got a free pass” under Obamacare, even though as FactCheck.org pointed out back in 2010, Muslims are not one of the groups granted a religious exemption.
The health care law only exempts the same religious groups already exempt from government benefits like Social Security. In fact, the only religious sects that have exemptions are Christian denominations.
But what else would you expect from the group which claimed that President Obama signed a law that “makes the Bible illegal”?
Guess what? Muslims don't have to participate in Obamacare due to "religious exemptions" not extended to Christians! Need evidence? Here you go:
EXEMPTIONS FROM INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY REQUIREMENTS.
—In the case of an individual who is seeking an exemption certificate under section 1311(d)(4)(H) from any requirement or penalty imposed by section 5000A, the following information:
In the case of an individual seeking exemption based on the individual’s status as a member of an exempt religious sect or division, as a member of a health care sharing ministry, as an Indian, or as an individual eligible for a hardship exemption, such information as the Secretary shall prescribe.”
Senate Bill, H.R. 3590, pages 273-274
Now what's curious about this tidy little insertion is that it's primarily designed for religious groups such as the Amish. But add a wrinkle here -- for Muslims, modern health care systems are a bit more akin to "gambling" -- which is haram or forbidden in Islam. Liberty and Pride explains:
There are several reasons why an individual could claim exemption, being a member of a religion that does not believe in insurance is one of them. Islam is one of those religions. Muslims believe that health insurance is “haraam”, or forbidden; because they liken the ambiguity and probability of insurance to gambling. This belief excludes them from any of the requirements, mandates, or penalties set forth in the bill. Other excluded groups include Amish, American Indians, and Christian Scientists.
What's fascinating about this is while Christian business owners and organizations -- most notably the Catholic Church, Domino's Pizza, and Hobby Lobby -- are fighting for their very lives resisting the violations of religious conscience in Obamacare, apparently Islam got a free pass.
Next time Christian Broadcasting Network correspondent Erick Stakelbeck talks about religious liberty, just remember that he doesn’t seem to extend that freedom to Muslims. During a conference call with the group Tea Party Unity, Stakelbeck attacked the Obama administration for having “literally” intervened in cases to defend the construction of mosques.
Stakelbeck said he is outraged that the Obama administration is trying to stop residents from blocking the construction of mosques because how dare the Justice Department defend the First Amendment!
He was also livid that Muslims may want to build “a $5 million mega-mosque,” just as we are sure he is angry that a Southern Baptist congregation in Dallas constructed a $130 million megachurch.
Caller: How is it we can get these facilities, because I’m not going to call it a church or a religion, how can we get them shut down?
Stakelbeck: Well look under this administration, good luck, because I’m just working on a chapter in my new book about how this administration when locals, in places like Murfreesboro, Tennessee, when local residents are up in arms about a mosque being built, the Obama Department of Justice literally intervenes, files amicus briefs in support of the mosque, we’ve seen this time and time again. Here’s a statistic for you, folks, in the year 2001 there were 1,200 mosques in America; now, just twelve years later after 9/11, that number has doubled to over 2,000 mosques, that’s a 74 percent increase since 9/11 alone, that is astounding and it is not a coincidence. Under the Obama administration the floodgates are open even more; they are literally intervening in these mosque cases around the country, in small towns with very small Muslim populations. I’m sorry, if you have a 200-strong Muslim population, why do you need a $5 million mega-mosque? And where is the money coming from? Look no further than Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states. So getting mosques shut down in this era, in the age of Obama? Good luck. What you’re going to see is more mosques built.
Stakelbeck told another caller that “there is a concerted effort by Islamists to infiltrate the very heartland of American society,” particularly the Bible Belt.
Just to be clear, Muslims represent just 1% of the population of Tennessee and less than 0.5% in other Bible Belt states like Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Arkansas.
Caller: We are seeing so much Saudi in middle Tennessee, I mean they have the best health care in the Saudi embassy, we have classes at the university, so we are just seeing a major, major influx of Saudi nationals here in middle Tennessee.
Stakelbeck: Folks, it’s not a coincidence. Middle Tennessee is the buckle of the Bible Belt. This is not just in New York City, Boston, Chicago, LA, traditional gateway cities for immigrants, anymore; there is a concerted effort by Islamists to infiltrate the very heartland of American society. I write about this in my book “The Terrorist Next Door,” I call it “Southern Inhospitality,” and that’s what we’re seeing, and you’re seeing it in a major way in that Nashville area where you have tens of thousands of Muslim immigrants in Murfreesboro and Shelbyville.
As he explained on an interview on VCY America’s Crosstalk yesterday, Obama will use Agenda 21 to confiscate lands such as parks and farms in Texas and the Ozarks in order to create “a Muslim majority in America.”
Later, Lipkin explained that Muslims tend to settle in forests and are already setting up encampments until there are about 50 million Muslim forest dwellers.
They go to the country where the President is a Muslim of a Christian country; that’s Obama, that’s the US. You’ve heard of Agenda 21 right? Agenda 21 means the US government can confiscate national parks, national forests, resources, big farms. The King Ranch in Texas is the size of Rhode Island; you could confiscate that ranch and put in 5 million Muslims there. I drive all the time through Texas and Oklahoma, the whole place is full of beautiful forests and mountains and lakes and there are very few people living there. America is empty, Canada is empty, Brazil is empty, Mexico has room, Europe has room. You’re going to have tens of millions of Muslims abandoning the Middle East — which is being turned into complete desolation by these civil wars — and the ultimate goal is to have a Muslim majority in America. Obama said in one of his speeches that America is the greatest Muslim country on earth, he’s a prophet because that’s what his purpose is.
They bring in say about 50,000 people in one shot in that forest. I heard about this in Virginia, I heard about this in New York, on the border between North and South Carolina, I heard about this in Texas. I go a lot through the Ozarks, I go through Missouri and Arkansas, there is a lot of beautiful pristine country which is completely empty. If you want to bring to the United States 50 million immigrants, you cannot bring them into the cities, you cannot overburden the infrastructure of the cities, cities cannot cope with that, so you build completely new infrastructures in forests, in places where you can plan this, this is being planned.
When a caller on the show wondered if Obama is going to “declare martial law” and follow through with plans “on becoming the dictator of our country,” Lipkin said that while that is a possibility he may not need the help of the FBI and the CIA to pull off the coup since there will be “50 million more minority people in the US” who, with the help of Saudi money and other minority groups, will work to keep Obama in power indefinitely.
Caller: We know that somebody in the Obama group is trying to do away with term limits so he can run again, then we also have the gun control and the government purchasing ammunition and I know before this last election there was some hype about him attacking Iran so he can declare martial law. What I’m wondering is do you think that by 2016 Mr. Obama is planning on becoming the dictator of our country?
Lipkin: That’s a very tough question to answer. If I’m going according to the information that I have, I understand the information that you have and the people that I speak to in America are the same type of people like you who have that kind of information about the dictatorship and the FBI and the CIA turning against Christians, this is possible. I think that what we are seeing is a plan by the Saudis, by the Qataris, by the Islamic world to bring into the US tens of millions of Muslims with a lot of money. Wall Street just hit 15,000 and I think Wall Street will continue to rise because it is being propped up by Saudi money. There are a lot of people in America, you’ve got a lot of minorities who are very happy with Obama and if you get 50 million more minority people in the US, the Christians are being increasingly outnumbered and the people who represent the other ideologies, especially Islam, will be dominant and there might not be need for FBI or CIA because the country is lost. So it’s very important for the churches to wake up, have a Christian revival and put a stop to it now.
Mike Huckabee today brought far-right activist Don Feder on to his show to address Feder’s latest column, which argues that the Obama administration is intentionally ignoring threats from Islamic extremists while trying to increase the country’s Muslim population.
Feder told Huckabee that while Obama condemned people who slander Mohammad in his 2012 remarks to the United Nations he never mentioned slanders against Jesus Christ, and Huckabee agreed.
Of course, Feder and Huckabee are wrong, as in the very next sentence of his address, where he condemned blasphemy laws, Obama said “those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”
Feder claimed Obama is “about as pro-Islam as it is possible for a non-Muslim to be” and “will do anything to protect Islam.”
After Huckabee asked him why “liberals are very defensive of Islam,” Feder argued that liberals have “allied themselves with Islam” over their shared “anti-American” and “totalitarian” worldviews, along with the left’s supposed bias towards “Third World people over Western people.”
Feder: I think as a devout leftist, if I can put it in those terms, I think our President is about as pro-Islam as it is possible for a non-Muslim to be. The reason that he keeps telling us: don’t jump to conclusions; don’t be logical; don’t follow the train of evidence; don’t stigmatize Islam. Remember when he went to the United Nations last year and he said the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam, he didn’t say the future must not belong to those who slander Jesus.
Feder: This is his mindset. He will do anything to protect Islam and to protect the reputation of Islam. That’s why after the Fort Hood massacre by a man who used to hand out business cards that said ‘Soldier of Allah,’ who shouted ‘Allah is Great’ while he was gunning down his fellow soldiers, who attended a radical mosque, and the President said, ‘gee, I don’t know why he’d do a thing like this.’
Huckabee: It is utterly bizarre. Don, you’ve been following this kind of thing for a long time, you’ve been writing about it for years and years and years, I don’t understand and maybe you can enlighten me, liberals are very defensive of Islam, very defensive. They never want to assume that somebody connected to Islam would do something radical and horrible, and yet liberals will excoriate Christians for believing in traditional marriage. But Islam, they’re not just anti-gay marriage, they believe basically in executing people who are homosexual. And women certainly don’t have any rights within the moral extreme radical Islamic cultures like Saudi Arabia where they are not going to be able to drive or get ta full education, run a company, there are going to be a lot of limitations on women. So how do liberals justify and how do they reconcile their pro-women’s rights, pro-abortion, pro-same-sex marriage, with an Islamic culture that they so want to protect that is far harsher on any of those things than any Christian I’ve ever known could possibly be?
Feder: Well I think you’ve hit the nub of the question, as they say. You are right, it seems counterintuitive. The left should be scared to death of Islam. Frankly, I think everybody should be scared of Islam; political Islam, at least. So why have they allied themselves with Islam? Two reasons: The first is, our mutual friend Gary Bauer says, they are both totalitarian movements, they both advocate unified control of humanity, one group on a religious basis, the other group on an ideological basis. Beyond that, they are both anti-American. I think that is what unites them more than anything else. That is why the left will go to ridiculous extremes to defend Islam because if an organization, if an entity, if a religion is anti-American then the left will naturally support it, as Islam is. That’s the trump card, anti-Americanism. That and the fact that I think the left views Islam as a Third World religion and of course as you know the left is very big on supporting Third World people over Western people.
Last week, Frank Gaffney spoke to Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) to discuss immigration reform and the government’s response to the Boston Marathon attack. Gohmert, who has cited the bombing as a reason to oppose comprehensive immigration reform, told Gaffney that “millions” of immigrants will be “rushing in” over the border if Congress is poised to pass legislation that includes a pathway to citizenship.
He even said that President Obama is “not going to ever secure the border” until Congress gives legal status to people who will “vote Democrat.”
It is time to slow down and make sure we do things properly so that we don’t bring in and legalize millions of people who will come rushing in as soon as there is a bill before the borders can be secured they’ll come rushing in. Instead we’ll have the President say, ‘gee I’m going to hold my doing my job for ransom, you either give me all these people that I think will vote Democrat and make them legal so they can vote Democrat or I’m not going to ever secure the border.’ That’s ridiculous. We all ought to stand firm. You secure the border so only legal people can come in and then we’ll have a deal done in a week, no more than a month.
While addressing the FBI’s work in Boston, Gohmert said that it was “amazing” that the FBI was able to do any investigative work at all because, according to Gohmert, they are being advised by “Muslim Brotherhood members.”
He said that the Obama administration is promoting “radical Islam” and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and in the US, maintaining that “Muslim Brotherhood advisers” have made it “virtually impossible to properly and adequately investigate and defend this country.”
The FBI did an amazing job, really terrific job, considering as how they virtually and figuratively bound their own hands and blindfolded themselves while they are trying to investigate something involving radical Islamists. We know that most Muslims are moderate; I continue to have people approach me that I’ve never seen or met that identify themselves as being from Egypt, some still having family there and some not, and pointing out that we’re helping the wrong people, you’re helping the radicals, you’re helping the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt would you please stop, you’re hurting those of us who don’t want radical Islam running our country, we want our Egypt back. But that’s what we’ve been doing.
The FBI, on the same token, they have brought as you know what the Dallas federal court and the fifth circuit court of appeals identified as the two largest Muslim Brotherhood front organizations in America, CAIR and ISNA, and so you know they have been working with them, they have been advised by CAIR. They finally suspended their so-called partnership with CAIR but you have Muslim Brotherhood members who have advised the FBI and have been telling them things that just simply make it virtually impossible to properly and adequately investigate and defend this country. The job they did was really amazing considering the fact that they have purged their lexicon of any words that Muslim Brotherhood advisers have told them that they find offensive.
On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer dedicated a segment to reiterating, for what seems like the hundredth time, his call for bans on Muslim immigration, Muslims serving in the military, and the building of mosques in America.
Following that segment, Fischer admitted that his proposals are considered radical but predicted that eventually "all of America is going to agree with me" and the only question is how many more people will have to die before they see the light.
"It may take ten years," Fischer said, "It make take a lot more jihadist attacks, a lot more innocent Americans dead, that may be what it takes to bring America to its senses but I believe that's where we're going to wind up. I believe eventually all of America is going to agree with me on this and the only question is whether America will agree with me before it is too late or after it is too late":
Disgraced ex-FBI agent John Guandolo returned to TruNews with Rick Wiles to discuss the Boston marathon bombing, which he said should motivate every American to point out and expose the people in their communities who are working for Al Qaeda.
Guandolo warns that Islamic radicals are operating in “every locale across the United States” and must be named and shamed, much like the Ohio professor whom Guandolo falsely accused of backing terrorism. If not, Guandolo claimed, such extremists will infiltrate school boards and the sheriff’s departments and cause America to go over the “tipping point” beyond which we become a nation controlled by Al Qaeda.
He also agreed that Wiles was headed in the right direction after the talk show host claimed that Obama is seeking to impose Sharia law on the US.
Wiles: American Christians are being demonized, the NRA is being demonized, the Tea Party is being demonized, red blooded American citizens are being demonized and at the same time we have people inside the US government who are embracing Islam inside this country. They are being placed in positions of power to dominate the American people.
Guandolo: Yep. So the question is for your viewers, are you going to sit by to you and I chat about this or what are you going to do?
Wiles: This is the problem. What are you going to do? We just had an election and the people just re-elected the Saudi plant.
Guandolo: I bring that up because that’s the question I get the most: what can we do? I’ve had people say, ‘I can’t do anything, I can go every four years and vote but I can’t do anything,’ and I just say: you have a local school board, you have a county sheriff, you have local elected officials, you have state representatives, and every one of them ought to know that this exists because the Brotherhood has organizations in every locale across the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska, where they are out there and they are working very diligently not just at the national level but at the state and local level.
Wiles: But John isn’t there a tipping point where this infiltration becomes so deep and pervasive that there’s a tipping point and suddenly the balance of power is in their favor?
Guandolo: I believe there is and I believe we’re pretty close to it right now.
Wiles: We may have already gone over; I think we’re already into it.
Guandolo: We may have, I actually won’t argue that point. I think that the big unknown or the big variable in this whole equation is the American people; the American people when they energize and come around that corner, when they hit their tipping point and decide to engage and identify the Muslim Brotherhood leaders in their cities, in their towns, in their neighborhoods and they point and they say ‘that guy, that gal, they’re working on the same side as Al Qaeda.’ You should not discern between a Muslim Brother and Al Qaeda, it’s just a different bowl of vanilla ice cream.
Would you want somebody who swears their allegiance to Osama bin Laden and the idea of Al Qaeda, would you want them advising your school board? It doesn’t matter what they’re advising them on. I hear people say, what’s he advising them on? At some point you have to inject sanity in the discussion and so if somebody is advising your school board and they’re a Muslim Brother, they are hostile, they should be treated like they’re from Al Qaeda. You don’t have to say everybody has to be tied to Al Qaeda, this is where we’re missing it, oh these two guys in Boston we can’t find any ties to Al Qaeda, well I can: they are dedicated to Islamic ideology of Sharia and imposing Islamic law.
Wiles: That describes Barack Obama.
Guandolo: That could be, you may be right on that. When it comes to what’s happening here and across the country I think that Americans at their local level have got to get engaged and the Muslim Brotherhood is counting on the fact that we will not.
Earlier today, we posted a video of Bryan Fischer claiming that liberals and Muslims are allied because they both hate America and Christianity.
On yesterday's "Hagee Hotline," John Hagee made a similar argument, except he claimed that the alliance is based in a united love of big government.
"Radical Islamsists wants a caliphate to regulate every aspect of our lives based on Islamic law," Hagee said, while "the Left wants to tell us what to eat, what to drink, what to drive, what to say, and what to think."
On top of that, both groups hate America and Israel:
