Ben Carson has suggested that, in his opinion, a Muslim who’s faith is Islam should not be qualified to be President of the US. The media ridicules him for his statement.
Trump is chastised roundly for not ‘defending Obama’ when a question is posed and the man refers to Obama as a Muslim.
CAIR, calls on Ben Carson to – quit.
Hillary takes jab at GOP’s.
Clinton says Trump fueling paranoia with his Muslim views.
And it’s only just begun.
CAIR claims it is the spokesperson of all US Muslims. But the percentage of Muslims in the US is less than 1%, around .8% of the total population. Not terribly noteworthy in terms of total force and hardly a force that can demand Carson to quit. Muslims have historically voted for Democrats, 72% voted for Obama while their voter turnout has been approximately 2/3 of their population – 1,700,000.
Add to the flames that CAIR has a relatively savory reputation for belonging to and or assisting terrorists, they certainly are not a great spokesperson for the religion. CAIR has been linked to Hamas. Created by The Muslim Brotherhood, an organization decreed a terrorist organization by Egypt, Saudi Arabia and by the United Arab Emirates, they are not exactly squeaky clean.
So why do we listen to them? Why are they given media attention at all with regard to Ben Carson?
CAIR boasts a membership of …5,000. Again, hardly noteworthy. But the media would have their panties in a wad because Ben Carson made what they term as an Islamophobic statement. Really? I’d say he made a judgment call on a topic that indicts terrorists and prohibits them from governing the US. Personally, I’m not a fan of Shari’a.
So why all the fuss?
Well, it would appear that the ‘fuss’ is relegated to the media, and does not seem to be the voice of the people. But then the government and the media ceased being the voice of the people years ago. Instead, they became the voice that wants to defraud the people. Hillary thought using the point would elevate her status, as did Sanders when they decried foul!
Who does CAIR like? Hillary, Rubio and Christie. Who does CAIR dislike? Basically anyone even remotely associated with David Horowitz Freedom Center. According to The Southern Poverty Law Center, a group funded by George Soros, David Horowitz is “the godfather of the anti-Muslim movement”. This indirectly connects Soros and CAIR as having the same ideals and principles.
David Horowitz has a fascinating background. His parents embraced communism and Stalin, and raised him in a world fed heavy doses of propaganda and censorship. It wasn’t until 1956 that his parents read Nikita Kruschevs Secret Speech and felt deeply betrayed, subsequently renouncing their stance. David was a devout Marxist advocating his far left political views in the UK and later in the US. A proponent of The Black Panther Party, but moved away from this when confronted with the murder of Betty Van Patter, a good friend whose body was found floating in the San Francisco Bay. The Black Panthers were suspect. Sometime in 1985, David formerly voiced his shift in loyalties in his support to then Republican, Ronald Reagan.
A prolific writer, in advocating for a conservative view, Horowitz claimed our universities were being redefined to a political correctness that had one leaning and one leaning only – left. He exposed 101 professors that he feels are dangerous in their ideals and socialist views in a book entitled, The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America. And despite a special investigation led by The House of Representatives in 2006 which found that students were not unfairly targeted if their views did not conform to leftist thinking, with the rise of social media, we have seen that is not true time and again.
Two of my sons were witness/victim of these politically correct agenda’s while on campus. Within the college community, it is well known, and routine.
Having turned his sights on Islam, Horowitz wrote of the ‘unholy alliance’, and became a target of CAIR. The book was a bestseller and sold millions of copies. He has been on numerous speaking engagements within various universities and each time shows the explicit anti-Jewish view of the Muslim students, their embrace of Hamas, and their inability to debate with any merit.
Perhaps, he would like to endorse Ben Carson.
