Crockett Keller Under Investigation? Crockett Keller Ad Brings Heat Video

You can feel it in the air. The State of Texas is gearing up to take down one of their own, and there is no telling what U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will unleash on Texan, Crockett Keller. Keller is a realtor and he and his wife own a gun dealership. He teaches Concealed Carry for licensing. He has/had a radio ad in his local area advertising his class, and said he would not teach Socialist Liberals who voted for Obama or Muslims. And he cited what the law requires of him – teach only those who can make ” knowledgeable” and “prudent” decisions. See a video interview with Keller below.

The egregiously Progressive Southern Poverty Law Center is after him. In a phone interview they say they had with Mr. Keller a couple of days ago, they quote him as follows (I doubt SPLC will stop here):

Asked why he doesn’t want Muslims in his class, Keller said, “I have a particular philosophy about concealed carry. I take it very seriously.”

He continued, “If you are a devout Muslim, you have the right to lie, cheat, steal, kill, do whatever you want to in order to promote Islam. Which means in the United States, if you are a devout Muslim, how can you pledge allegiance to the United States of America? You can’t. The ideologies are diametrically opposed.

“I consider all Muslims our enemies, no matter how nice they are. … I could not trust one and I, as an instructor, am not going to teach one how to shoot a gun and aid him in getting a license.”

ABC KVUE quotes Keller:

“I call it exercising my right to choose who I instruct in how to use a dangerous weapon,” said Keller…

On Thursday, Keller defended the ad. “I’m not going to do it, I will give up my license to teach before I will teach them.”

The “them” Keller refers to are voters of President Obama or non-Christian Muslims.

“The fact is if you are a devout Muslim then you cannot be a true American,” said Keller. “Why should I arm these people to kill me, that’s suicide.”

Consider how many Muslims are receiving pilot training in the U.S. How many of us want to fly commercial with a Muslim at the stick. Crockett Keller is not alone in believing that the Koran refuses Muslims the right to be loyal to the United States. He is right to say that their holy book gives the right to lie, cheat and steal to deceive the infidel (you and me). There are Koranic reasons Muslims can be compelled to lie, to never take anyone outside the “faith” as a friend, to conceal your identity as a follower of Muhammad. “Scheming” is following in the way of Allah for Muslims, because “Allah is the best of schemers.” The Koran says that “inventing good information” is not a lie. To make “peace” you can lie (deceive).  If your fellow Americans are your enemy, lying is permissible. If a Muslim wants to do something permissible in the Koran, lying to circumvent any intention to stop them reaching their goal is endorsed. A Muslim is “obligated” to lie to do that which is “permissible.”

The above is paraphrased from The Religion of Peace. There are many sites where you will find the same information. Here is more:

Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers in order to defeat them.  The two forms are:

Taqiyya – Saying something that isn’t true.

Kitman – Lying by omission.  An example would be when Muslim apologists quote only a fragment of verse 5:32 (that if anyone kills “it shall be as if he had killed all mankind”) while neglecting to mention that the rest of the verse (and the next) mandate murder in undefined cases of “corruption” and “mischief.”

Though not called Taqiyya by name, Muhammad clearly used deception when he signed a 10-year treaty with the Meccans that allowed him access to their city while he secretly prepared his own forces for a takeover.  The unsuspecting residents were conquered in easy fashion after he broke the treaty two years later, and some of the people in the city who had trusted him at his word were executed.

Another example of lying is when Muhammad used deception to trick his personal enemies into letting down their guard and exposing themselves to slaughter by pretending to seek peace.  This happened in the case of Ka’b bin al-Ashraf (as previously noted) and again later against Usayr ibn Zarim, a surviving leader of the Banu Nadir tribe, which had been evicted from their home in Medina by the Muslims.

In Robert Spencer’s Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades, he says:

Jihadists today have spoken of the usefulness of deceptive practices. Remember that the next time you see a Muslim spokesman on television professing his friendship with non-Muslim Americans and his loyalty to the United States. Of course, he may be telling the truth — but he many not be telling the whole truth or he may be just lying…

[Spencer quoting Ibn Kathir] “Allah prohibited his believing servants from becomming supporters of the disbelievers, or to take them as comrades with whom they develop friendships, rather than the believers.” However, exempted from this rule were “those believers who in some areas or times fear for their safety from the disbelievers. In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, nut never inwardly.

So to all the outraged commentors on my original post about Crockett Keller, wake up and pay attention. You may know many good and loyal to the U.S. Muslims, but there are truths they have the holy right not to tell. Truths you will never know, if you don’t know how the Koran guides their lives.

Crockett Keller is spot-on. He doesn’t want to teach Concealed Carry to those who have a loyalty to something other than this country. And he doesn’t want to teach Concealed Carry to hose he deems not to have “prudent” reasoning.

If Keller’s free speech is respected, he will survive the coming storm of hate from Progressives, but there is little reason to believe the hammer coming down him will be stayed by prudent reasoning.

Gawker calls Keller “a cardboard cut-out” who spends his money on “boots and hats and spurs and guns,” (and what is there to complain out with boots and hats and spurs and guns in your closet???), and says it is “illegal to refuse to teach people based on religious grounds.”

The fact is, it is just too painful for freedom-loving Americas to believe the Koran. It is easier to ignore their holy word. Who wants to spend time reading about Muhammad? Who wants to know the truth of him? Who is willing to give up a video game or two to gain that knowledge?

The answer is few. If you are among the many, you will rue the day your children and grandchildren will be forced to face the problem of the Muslim jihadist, otherwise known as your next door neighbor, or the father of your little girl’s classmate, or the imam of the mosque now located in the abandoned school down the street – in the neighborhood you chose to keep your children safe.

The Texas Department of Public Health is involved now, and will determine whether Keller has broken a law based on religious freedom – of which Keller likely has none. We’ll see if authorities acknowledge the fact that Islam is a government, as well as a “religion.” Prayers and courage to Crockett Keller and his family.

  • ““illegal to refuse to teach people based on religious grounds.”

    Hmm. Keller owns a private store, a private company that teaches CCL, takes no money from the Feds to support his business. Pays taxes on his income as well as a tax(state and Fed) to handle firearms for sale in his store… So what makes it illegal for him to chose who he decides to teach or not to teach?

    He could say I won’t teach blonds or red heads or tall people or short people and little to nothing would be said. Religion doesn’t have a damn thing to do with it.

    It’s all about Political Correctness and that will be the death of America.

    Our freedoms are being stripped away under many guises but truthfully because of Political Correctness. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

    • afticker, yes it is all about being PC. and it is killing this country. Before this is over, the administration will have the Texas US Attorney General shutting him down.

    • Sid

      Both of my grandfathers fought against racist, communist-hating, Nazi assholes like this cowardly, poison-spewing, gun-toting, ass-hat.
      I realize that most of you jingoist, flag-waving morons don’t know the difference between prejudice and discrimination. Be a prejudice grease stain all you want, but when you’re too stupid to see that this moron is anti-democratic in wanting to deny Americans who exercise their right to vote for whoever the Hell they want to, then he’s an anti-American choad-licker and can go take a flying f-ck at a rolling donut.
      If he wants to meet a “real American” and a “REAL TEXAN” he can jump on TX-71 and bring his fat cheeseburger ass down to Austin and get an old-fashioned civics lesson.

    • Terry Smith

      This guy is mentally impaired. He should not be allowed to handle a gun much less teach someone else how to shoot. I have good friend in Texas who sent the article to me. They are gun owners and Conservative who feel this guy could be dangerous.

  • a.mcewen

    one thing – it seems to me when it comes to Islam, you are citing books which speaking negatively about the religion rather than the Koran itself. Also, if this man has a gun license and is not abiding by the rules which come with receiving that license, then he deserves whatever consequences he gets. Nothing private about receiving a gun license and then not following the rules which come with that license.

    • a.mcewen, please click the Religion of Peace link that I quoted from. It gives the “verses.” It’s from the Koran. Robert Spencer’s book is also full of the writings from the Koran. From past experience, I know that when I quote from the Koran, eyes glaze over.

      Many of us hope what he is doing is not against the law, and because everything I have said above concerning the teachings of the Koran, then by your logic, Muslims deserve the consequences of their faith while in this country.

      The Law does use the word “prudent,” as he said. Crockett is being prudent. Some Muslims want him dead because their holy book calls for it. He has no way to know who those Muslims are, and he doesn’t want to enable them.

      Remember that Islam is as much a government as it is a religion.

  • T-Texas

    I think that he needs to be decorated as a hero with cajoles big enough say what he thinks.To hell with political correctness.They people of Texas should band together and give all of their support to this man.In fact we lost 12 heroes that were killed by mu slimes yesterday.So all of you liberals suck up to them.

    • T-Texas, yesterday was a tragic day for America. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

  • Pingback: Politically Incorrect in Texas()

  • I seem to remember certain people of a certain religion taking flight training..on just taking off, not landing… That went well in 2001.. Personally, a private person, or business has every right to deny anyone anything.. They also have the right to reap the consequences.. just like anyone can have an opinion and a belief.. As long as he or she is not working for a government agency.. I see no problem. But then again, I’m a common sense type of person.

  • Michael

    I’m a Jew, so I guess Keller wouldn’t teach me. Doesn’t matter, I don’t need lessons. Besides, I wouldn’t teach a non-Jew. A Jew can never trust a non-Jew after what they did to us.

    If I see a non-Jew, I’ll smile and wave at them if they wave to me, but they’re judgment is very poor and they’re prone to mass murder of Jews.

    I’m just being honest and matter of fact, that’s my nature.

    • Did I miss that.. sorry… Why would he not teach a person whose Jewish.. are they a threat now..?
      I need to go back to bed.. I’m getting worn out.. I’m old.. haha Look, if someone came in sweaty and completly shaven, wearing white and babbling some prayer over and over again.. and all they wanted to do is learn how to shoot not how to load.. welll… I’d have to think about it. Sorry.. I guess I’m making light of a serious situation. Out here in Montana, we’d just sorta take care of things.. kinda.

    • Of course Jews are welcome in his classes. No matter how you feel about non-Jews, you can’t put the same thing on him.

      • Scratch

        Didn’t you the part where he specifically says he doesn’t train non-Christians? No Jews allowed.

        • You know Scratch, then you let the free market work.. you DON’T PATRONIZE HIS BUSINESS. I’m sorry, he’d not be my friend.. I dislike people who just outright discriminate. I’m not worried about a Muslim learning to shoot a gun… He’s over reacting to his own red neck ways. YOU JUST STAY AWAY FROM HIS BUSINESS AND LET IT DRY UP. No income is a great balancer (not sure that’s a word.. LOL).. let him go off to his home and rock in his chair, and let him rant. This is a free country. He’s got that right. Ok… When we start infringing on rights then we’re doing more damage to this country than a fanatic anyone with a loaded gun. He has a perfect right to make jackass out of himself.. and he kinda has.. Out here in Montana, anyone wearing over size cowboy hat may be over compensating anyway.. lol

            If he wants to voice bigoted opinions in his private life, on his own dime, then that’s fine. But as soon as he starts abusing the Texas State CHL Instructor Certification Program to do so, then he is using my tax dollars to finance and support his religious bias – something that the Civil Rights Act prohibits him from doing.

            The state granted him a CHL Instructor’s certification for one reason; to teach the public basic firearms handling so they can meet state requirements for a CHL. they aren’t givng him a certification for preaching his religious opinions, just for firearms instruction. He is serving a state function, not a private one. Therefore, he must meet state standards, including standards against discriminating against the public based on religion.

            All this crying about how he should be able to run his business the way he likes, people seem to forget that it isn’t just his business; he is dependent on the state for his certification, and to gain access to the state government’s CHL program, so he must also adhere to state requirements. If he can’t just teach people to shoot straight and shut up about his religious opinions, then maybe he isn’t cut out to represent the state anymore.

            • Carl

              It’s great to see a business man honestly advertise his services.
              How many of your restaurants and bars do not allow smoking? Discrimination? How many of them have signs that might say something like “Sorry…No shirts, no shoes, no service!” or “We reserve the right to refuse service to ANYONE” Discrimination?
              How do you know he is “abusing the Texas State CHL Instructor Certification Program”? I’d be willing to bet my Colt 45 that he is filing all the proper paperwork, doing the backround checks, collecting state and federal and whatever other fees and PAYING his taxes to provide a valuable service to law abiding citizens. Think of all the jobs he is creating when he sells a firearm. A REAL job not a goverment job. Which, exactly, of your tax dollars did you mean “finance and support his religious bias” with? Freedom of religion and free speech are still free for ALL Legal Americans. I’ll agree with you that he is serving a state function but he is doing so as a private citizen not as an employee of the State of Texas. The state granted him permission to train citizens in the art of concealed carry because he proved he is qualified to train and paid the fees the state required of him. He is filling a need that people are willing to pay for proper training. Ever here of supply and demand? Did you start yelling discrimination when the airports started strip searching you and confiscating your water bottle or 4 ounces of shampoo? That was started because of the very people Mr. Keller is refusing to train. Again you kinda got it bass akwards when you say he is “dependent on the state for his certification”. Now just please stop and think about this for a second. Mr. Keller wants to open a business providing a traing service. The state requires him to fill out a bunch of paperwork, get a backround check, submit a “Live Scan” (digital fingerprints),pay a bunch of fees and wait until they finaly say “Thank you Mr. Keller for your application. You passed our test and meet our requirements. Here is your certificate allowing you to train. Thank you for you payment. You will receive a notice of renewal fees again this time next year. Remember to file with the IRS and pay your taxes on the fees you collect from your students. We, the state, need that money from you to pay our staff. We’re depending on you.”
              Yes he can discriminate. For his reasons stated and many other for the safety of the students, himself and the general public. I’ll bet my Colt 357, another American made gun, that Mr. Keller is adhering to state requirements otherwise his permit would have been revoked along time ago. It is not the responsibility of Mr. Keller to teach people how to shoot straight. They have to know that before they even take the class or they will not qualify on the range and will not be issued the CHL. He may have a few hours of classroom time teaching about the state laws , the carriers rights and responsibilities, what to expect if you ever are in a life threatening situation and then the range qualification. Gun ownership is a serious responsibility and not one to be taken lightly.
              Mr. Keller does not represent the State of Texas. He happens to be a Texan representing the people who care enough to say they are going to do what it takes to protect and defend the ones they love.
              I would invite you to go to a gunshop and look into a CHL, CCW or whatever it is in your area. Learn more about it. It’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Ride well, shoot staight and always speak the truth.

              • steve

                You are a fool. Discrimination is a very bad thing. A business license is issued to serve the public. This has nothing to do with money. Whats next, this asshole will not teach blacks, or latinos, or women, or gay people? This man is not a good american, he is one step away from being a Nazi. Thats how they started. Shame on you.

              • Scratch

                Guys, it sure would be nice if instead of guessing at the law, wishing at the law, or hoping at the law, you would just take 5 minutes of your time to ACTUALLY LOOK UP THE LAW.

                The law here is the 1964 Civil Rights Act. It has been the law of the land for nearly 50 years. Unless you are operating a private club, a business has no right to discriminate on the basis of ethnicity or religion. Just like you can’t kick blacks out of the store for being black, if a customer of another religion, no matter how abhorrent you may find that faith, offers to pay for your wares or services, you have to treat him like any other customer and take his money. The state in particular cannot support any group or business that does not abide by Civil Rights Act, so not only is Keller in civil violation of the law under his business, but he cannot use his state-sanctioned instructor’s certificate for discriminatory purposes either.

                You may not like it, but that’s the way it is. You’re legal argument of “my business, my rules” has been dead and gone for nearly a half-century now. Don’t believe me? Again, go look up the 64 Civil Rights Act for yourself.

            • Scratch, religion is only a part of the Koran. Islam is a government.

              • asdf

  • vince

    what a bunch of red necks…

    running a business is not a right it is a licensed priviledge, just like driving…break the law take away this blow hard’s license

    Why wait 10 whole years before he accounces he will not teach liberals or Muslims like either would be caught within hundreds of a hole like Mason Texas. Why not the 9/12 ?? He says he is stopping another 9/11 right He is just a big fat coward.

    this is the video that answers him

    • vince, business licenses are only revenue for the government. While there may be businesses that should be regulated and should be licensed, most do not fall into that category. It’s all about the money.

      • Carl

        So put the man down down for his taste of clothing and call him names when you know you are wrong.
        Did the same person you took drivers traing from also work for the DMV and administer your test? Probably not.
        Would he/she have allowed you to take the driving test if you were barefoot or stoned or smelled of alcohol? If not, would it have been because of concern for yours, his and the puplics safety?
        You’re right Maggie, It all boils down to the money.

        Maggie, have you noticed the type of language most of the descenters use. Does that tell you anything about them?

        • Kayla

          Well, your language certainly tells me enough about you. By the way, it’s ‘dissenters’. Typical.

          • Oh, you’re right. I have thousands of articles on this blog Kayla, and you won’t find many spelling errors. You and I may differ on opinion of Keller, but your snotty little remark has nothing to do with fact.

          • I was a journalist in the Navy in the 60s.. My officer in charge said once.. You are a great writer Dave.. just to bad you have to spell..
            Maggie is an amazing journalist. and your an amazing failure in the argument department when all you can do, since you have no real argument, you have to find error in her spelling. Never stops to amaze me how people like you, can always find fault in others you disagree with.
            Liberals always use this tactic.. they see your color, and they see your race.. Your little snippy remark to my friend, Maggie, says all I need to know about your lame butt.

  • steve

    Remember, Ted Bundy was a good americam, so was John Gacey

    • Bob

      And lets not forget Timothy McVeigh. I’m sure Keller would’ve gladly given him weapons training. After all, McVeigh was a Christian.
