Keeping an eye on Islam, fighting against, and educating about Islamists is no longer a conservative issue for CPAC, or maybe just a little too conservative now that we’re 11-1/2 years out from the attacks of 9/11/01 and expanding the Republican “tent.” Maybe it isn’t cool to talk about Jihad. Geller’s popular forums discussing the influence of Islam in America and across the globe will not be available to CPAC attendees this year. She is not invited – never mind the speakers she provided spoke to standing-room only crowds. What does Benghazi mean to conservatives, or Dr. Afridi sitting in a Pakistani prison after helping us find bin Laden? Who’s going to fight this battle, and who better to lead it than Pam Geller and Robert Spencer at JihadWatch – because neither are running for public office? Another win for Barack Obama. He’s doing the happy dance today, and singing a little Al Green. Oh but wait…
In 2011, Geller warned that the CPAC board had been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, saying that the Board was either “clueless or complicit.” See that video below.
I won’t be at CPAC this year. Every year AFDI organizes a must-see event addressing issues the Grover Norquist/Suhail Khan cabal refuse to address (jihad, sharia, the war on freedom in the West).
This year, I applied to speak and was ignored. I tried to get a room for an AFDI event, “The War on Free Speech” and was ignored. So, for the first time in five years, I won’t be at CPAC. Last year Suhail Khan bragged out loud that he (and his other operatives) had successfully kept Robert Spencer and me from being invited to speak. He went so far as to warn people not to attend our events or read our books. Source Pam at Atlas Shrugs
In 2004, Norquist married Samah Alrayyes, a Palestinian Muslim working as a PR Specialist – the director of Kuwait’s Islamic Free Market Institute.
The RNC may not be a “policymaking body,” but its policy positions drive “strategy” and “tactics” and donor outreach efforts.
Which brings us back to Grover Norquist and the unpleasant realities that these strategists and rebranding gurus and RNC candidates don’t want to talk about.
Party power player Norquist and the ATR propose to help fix the GOP’s problems.
Norquist is part of the problem.
Some of us have not forgotten how Norquist made common cause with the left-wing zealots at People for the American Way in a forum bashing the Patriot Act — and how he forged even more dangerous alliances in the name of Muslim GOP outreach.
In 2009, she brought Geert Wilders, who is the head of the third largest party in the Netherlands and has spoken out against the Islamization of his country.
In 2010 she held an event that her organization, The American Freedom Defense Initiative, hosted, titled “Jihad: The Political Third Rail”, with speakers like Allen West, Wafa Sultan, Simon Deng, Anders Gravers, and Steve Coughlin.
Geller and her coworkers recently won a court battle allowing them to post ads that countered the #Myjihad ad campaign that posited that jihad was a peaceful word. Yet despite the law’s defense of her rights, the ACU will not stand up for her against critics. Source: Breitbart Big Government
Hamas-CAIR’s ad campaign is a psyop.“#MyJihad” is a cynical, misleading, and deceptive campaign designed to distract from and obscure the true meaning of jihad that Muslims the world over understand and all too many act upon. They’re attempting to fool Americans into thinking that jihad is about getting in your exercise and making friends.
My ads, in contrast, tell the truth about the jihad that too many Muslims believe in and act upon, and the only jihad that Americans need to be concerned about. They’re designed to tell the truth about jihad and lay bare CAIR’s deceptions and lies.
There have been over 20,000 jihad attacks since 9/11, each one with the imprimatur of a Muslim cleric. And so I created a jihad campaign speaking about the true meaning of jihad. Our new campaign focuses on how jihadists really use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism. It uses actual quotes by jihadis and Islamic supremacists, including Osama bin Laden and Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as statements from Hamas TV and one of the victims of the Fort Hood jihad massacre.
One ad depicts Osama bin Laden and the burning Twin Towers along with a bin Laden quote explaining why he took down the Twin Towers: “The first thing we are calling you to is Islam.” Another quotes an eyewitness to the jihad mass murders of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, noting that he was shouting “Allahu akbar” as he murdered 13 Americans at Fort Hood. Another quotes a Hamas TV music video including the lyric, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah.” A fourth quotes Times Square jihad car bomber Faisal Shahzad saying that jihad involving “weaponry” was “an obligation and duty in Islam on every Muslim.” AmericanPower has more.
CPAC has done something right, as they always do – most everything right. Chris Christie is out, Gingrich and Palin are in and Bill Maher is confused. Last year Palin declined the CPAC offer to keynote. Bunkerville has more. UPDATE 3-4-13: Da Tech Guy attends CPAC every year, reports from CPAC, and at times speaks in some forums. He has a very insightful post up on Pam and her past participation. I hope you will read it here.
