“Anit-Muslim Bigotry”

In “response to the spike in anti-Muslim bigotry,” the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee has quietly scheduled a special hearing for early next week to better protect Muslim civil rights in America. This is an interesting lead-in inasmuch as we here at American Age wonder how and where the “anti-Muslim bigotry” and associated crimes data was collected.

Organized by Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin, who chairs the judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights, the event will mark the first-ever congressional hearing on Muslim civil rights. Durbin put it together because he claims there’s been a surge in anti-Muslim bigotry in the last year. As examples he offers Quran burnings, restrictions on mosque construction, hate crimes, hate speech, and other forms of discrimination.

This knee jerk idiocy is so very typical of the Democrat Party. We sincerely hope that whilst these hearings are going on Durbin will not be foolish enough to make assumptions in the same ways that Eric Holder and Barack Obama have; in other words, could you give a little time on Christian civil rights? We ask only for a brief look-see.

Scheduled for March 29 in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, the hearing (“Protecting the Civil Rights of American Muslims”) will feature an all-star panel of leftist civil rights leaders, including the illegal immigrant advocate President Obama appointed to run a key division of the Justice Department. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, who heads the agency’s Civil Rights Division, is the headliner followed by Farhana Khera who runs a San Francisco group called Muslim Advocates. Read about Perez’s latest shenanigans here.

All this coming from an agent of the United States federal government who openly and routinely admits to the “…inactive federal government…’ Furthermore these efforts make the assumption that Muslims have already been the recipients of civil rights abuses. Therefore this hearing is biased and we further doubt that anything constructive will come as a result.

Folks do you need reminding of how the Obamacare legislation got passed; how about the Cornhusker Hail Mary? Promising Senators from Maine, Nebraska, Illinois, Louisiana, special favors to get their votes just so that tragic piece of waste could be proffered still makes us sick when added to the 3-Ring circus of Guantanamo Bay, immigration reform, and the good old “…inactive federal government…”

In a speech at the Muslim Advocates annual dinner last year, Attorney General Eric Holder saluted the group and called it a partner in his agency’s mission to promote tolerance, ensure public safety and protect civil rights. Before the address Holder had met with Khera to discuss “shared concerns” about rising levels of religious intolerance and the unacceptable ”us versus them” mentality that the government has towards Muslims.

Those meetings were simply part of the Obama Administration’s ongoing Muslim outreach efforts. In the last year alone Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano discussed national security matters with a group of extremist Muslim organizations, the nation’s space agency (NASA) was ordered to focus on Muslim diplomacy and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties long banned them from the U.S.

The Obama Administration also sent an America-bashing mosque leader (Feisal Abdul Rauf) who blames U.S. foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks on a Middle Eastern outreach mission and ordered a government-funded meal program for home-bound seniors to offer halal cuisine prepared according to Islamic law.
