Democrats are always vigilant for a ‘crisis’ to exploit to shove their agenda down our throats, even if they have to gin one up to do it.
The Squad can run roughshod over people with impunity, but the minute anyone hits them back, they go into victimhood mode. Ilhan Omar might well be the worst offender.
The woman who giggled when talking about terrorist groups, who quite possibly committed immigration fraud by posing as her brother’s wife, and who routinely spits venomous rhetoric against jews (and others) has taken the opportunity of a joke Boebert made at her expense to cry ‘Islamophobia’.
Democrats, who have done nothing to censor her outrageous statements against Jewish people, naturally rushed to pass an ‘Islamophobia’ bill through the House in response.
The House voted 219-212 Tuesday to pass Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s legislation to create a special envoy to combat Islamophobia, a week after progressives introduced a separate resolution to strip Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of her committee assignments following her anti-Muslim comments calling the Minnesota Democrat a terrorist.
The bill would address the rise in incidents of Islamophobia worldwide and still needs to pass the Senate before it could go to President Joe Biden’s desk to be signed into law.
The legislation was previously sitting in the House Foreign Affairs Committee for months but was voted out of committee last week as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi faced increasing pressure from members of her own party to take aggressive action against Boebert for her racist remarks. —CNN
The remarks were not ‘racist’, but then, what do you really expect from CNN’s reporting?
Since CAIR, the unindicted co-conspirator in a HAMAS funding case is largely responsible for our use of the fairly recent term, it might be useful to know more about what drives it.
As Capital Research Center wrote in 2019:
Summary: The Council on American-Islamic Relations has a history fraught with questionable associations and dubious claims related to Islam and terrorism. In its latest report, CAIR targets numerous nonprofit groups and grantmakers for “funding hate.” But these so-called “Islamophobic” groups are not hate groups at all—unless you use the definition of “hate” promoted by the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center. This careful analysis of CAIR’s report will debunk many of the organization’s central arguments.
…CAIR ominously claims there is a vast, “dark” network of foundations funding what it calls the “Islamophobia network.” They include talented scholars and passionate advocates. To make their case CAIR—again, with the SPLC’s help—claims to crunch numbers from nonprofit tax returns of all the groups in this supposed “Islamophobia Network.”
SPLC, huh? If they’re anything at all like their sketchy buddies, that gives us a measure of what their real motives might be… more of a political strongarming group than anything resembling a defender of human rights.
But don’t we have anything more current? Oh, would you look at that, we do!
Could it be that this ‘Islamophobia’ bill is actually a Trojan horse for slipping in antisemitism? Let’s see CAIR in their own words.
“Zionist synagogues,” the Anti-Defamation League, Hillel and other Jewish organizations are “enemies” who are part of a conspiracy behind Islamaphobia, American police brutality, and US border control, according to a speech made by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) San Francisco executive director and former Women’s March board member Zahra Billoo.
“When we talk about islamophobia, we often think of the vehement fascists… but I also want us to pay attention to the polite Zionists, the ones that say ‘let’s just break bread together,'” said Billoo on November 27 at the American Muslims for Palestine’s (AMP) Annual Convention for Palestine in the US.
According to Billoo, the reason that these organizations were coming after Muslims is that they are afraid that Muslims advocate for Black Lives Matter, police accountability, homelessness, against poverty, for the environment and “a free Palestine.” Consequently, they “must come after us,” said Billoo.
“We need to pay attention to the Anti-Defamation League, we need to pay attention to the Jewish Federation, we need to pay attention to the Zionist synagogues, we need to pay attention to the Hillel chapters on our campuses.” –JPost
San Francisco? Isn’t that Nancy Pelosi’s backyard? (Well, at least until she moves into her new digs in Florida?)
Ask yourself whether the following words couldn’t just as easily have been spoken by any one of the Squad members.
Throughout her speech, Billoo referred repeatedly to the connection between Islamophobia and Zionism, claiming that “Islamophobia is a well-funded conspiracy, a well-funded project — A well-funded project to marginalize us.”
“We have to connect the dots between the organizations that promote Zionist agendas materials marketing and legislation are the same ones that want to ban Muslims, are the same ones that want to pass anti-sharia legislation,” she said.
She explained that the Israeli military trained police officers in the United States to “kill unarmed black men, women and children.” Further, the technology “used at the US-Mexico border is the same technology used at the apartheid wall.” –JPost
There are plenty of good reasons we do not want Sharia passed in America… including the subjection of state laws to religious ones, when the American tradition establishes separate spheres of who gets to set the standards for state (legal) and religious (moral) authority.
Knowing that the term Islamophobia is — even now — being used as a cudgel to demonize perfectly lawful Jewish groups and even the Anti-Defamation League, does Schumer REALLY want to be the one to put this weapon in the hand of people that hate them?
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
