"Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them (Muslims) should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."
Barack Obama from his book "Audacity of Hope", Pg. 261
There is a false narrative (Read: LIE) coming from the Obama Administration where it concerns Americans and the Muslim community. The lie is that Muslims are disproportionately the victims of hate crimes and discrimination from Americans, particularly eeeevil conservatives and the Tea Party. Those on the left have been perpetuating this lie since shortly after 9/11, asking the asinine question, "Why do they hate us?" Wringing their hands, and wracked with clinical self-loathing at the unfairness of being so fortunate as to have been born in the United States, they asked "Why do they hate us?".
The problem with the liberal argument of poor oppressed Muslims in this country is that it isn't true. It is based on liberal hysteria created in their own twisted minds. The fact is, there are not roving bands of Tea Party members going around the country with lit torches beating Muslims, burning down or defacing their mosques, or killing Muslims. This is the caricature they want to portray conservatives with, but it is based on their own twisted fantasies.
According to Eric Holder's own DOJ, hate-crimes against Muslims occurs at a frequency of only 6.0 times per 100,000 per year. This is 10% lower than for blacks (10.7), nearly 50% less than gays and bisexuals (11.5), and 59% less than hate-crime attacks against Jews (14.8). Yet Holder feels it necessary to chill the free speech rights of Americans by effectively threatening them with "violating the civil rights" of Muslims for speaking out against some of the heinous acts committed in the name of Allah. Even if someone says something offensive, our First Amendment protects the right of idiots to say stupid stuff. You, however, do not have a right NOT to feel offended. If you're offended by something, get over it.
Now the DOJ is partnering with the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee to warn/inform Americans that they could be violating federal civil rights laws by posting "inflammatory" posts on Facebook and other sites.
Federal prosecutor Bill Killian told a local Tennessee news station, “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”
So according to Eric "the Red" Holder, am I now to ignore the beheadings, the rape and stoning of their women, executions of gays and Christians, jihadist attacks, and Islamist Saudi Arabian diplomats keeping women in slavery and sexual bondage? I can't and I won't. Yet, this is what this Administration, Eric Holder, liberals, and their lemmings would have us do.
So what is going to be considered "inflammatory"?
With this DOJ, it's anybody's guess. Maybe Black Panthers donning military-style uniforms, nightsticks, and intimidating voters at polling places? Nope. Not a crime with this DOJ. I know! The same Black Panther who was seen at the polling place, puts out a video saying to kill all the white "cracker" babies! Not inflammatory enough, I guess.
What IS inflammatory is being a Tea Party member, conservative, or a pro-Israel Jewish organization. Inflammatory enough to use the IRS and EPA for political intimidation . Also, if you are an unknown second-rate filmmaker who makes a really poor Mohammed movie, posts it on YouTube, has it falsely blamed for the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, you can be taken down in a SWAT-like raid, arrested, and STILL be rotting in jail.
So much for free speech.
