Daily Caller: Dems at radicalization hearings recite Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated group’s talking points

Posted by iusbvision on March 11, 2011

I am not surprised I am sorry to say.

Ted Kennedy reached out to Russia to undermine Reagan.

Democrats opposed Reagan’s efforts to end the Cold War.

Democrats favored Daniel Ortega when he aligned with the Soviets in the 80’s

NPR was just caught expressing a willingness to funnel illegal terrorist funds from the Muslim Brotherhood to itself.

On college campus around the country the progressive secular left and the MSA, which is a part of the Muslim Bortherhood, collude to harass Christians and Jews and to stifle free speech.

The Daily Caller:

The Daily Caller has acquired the talking points that the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), a group with deep ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, supplied to its supporters as an aid in attacking the Muslim radicalization hearing New York Republican Rep. Peter King held Thursday. Save for Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s incoherent ramblings on Thursday, Democrats’ statements and testimony against King’s hearing, whether intentionally or unintentionally, largely mirrored MPAC’s talking points.

MPAC recommended that its supporters accuse King of “pure political posturing,” and told them to say, “these hearings appear little more than a political circus with Rep. King as the ringleader.” MPAC also recommended supporters say that the “hearings hurt our national security” because of their “narrow scope.” Finally, it said supporters should say that the hearings were unnecessary because “active” partnerships between law enforcement and the American Muslim community already exist.

California Democratic Rep. Laura Richardson hit on the “pure political posturing” point in the MPAC memo. She compared King’s hearings to those of the McCarthy era.

Rep. Al Green, Texas Democrat, asked why King wasn’t investigating the Ku Klux Klan, something that plays right into the MPAC “suggested message” that the “hearings hurt our national security” because of a “narrow scope.”

“I think that all criminals should be prosecuted. I think that all terrorists should be investigated which is why I said we ought to investigate all of them and that would include the KKK,” Green said. “Over a hundred years of terrorism why not investigate them too. They are rooted in a religion as well. Check their website out. You’ll see.”

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison regurgitated all the MPAC talking points in his testimony at the beginning of the hearing.

“Ascribing the evil acts of a few individuals to an entire community is wrong; it is ineffective; and it risks making our country less secure,” Ellison said. “Targeting the Muslim American community for the actions of a few is unjust. Actually all of us–all communities–are responsible for combating violent extremism. Singling out one community focuses our analysis in the wrong direction.”

A spokesman for Ellison told TheDC that the congressman didn’t receive the MPAC talking points and “wrote his testimony himself.” Spokespeople for Green and Richardson did not immediately respond to TheDC’s request for comment.

The MPAC’s talking points aren’t something that surprise Ben Lerner of the Center for Security Policy. He said they are just another example of a self-described “rights” group shifting the debate away from the issues at hand and onto whatever they want to talk about.

“Serious people are trying to raise serious questions about the issue of homegrown terrorism and radicalization in the Muslim community,” Lerner said in a phone interview. “A lot of what these ‘so-called mainstream’ Muslim organizations are doing is throwing out insults and labels to anyone who has tried to delve into this. They’re not offering any serious, substantive responses to the concerns that are being raised by Congress.”

    We can actually carry this loathing of America back to 1975, when a Democrat Congress, determined to make a point and destroy an entire nation and its culture for which American troops had fought for some 15 years, decided to eliminate all financial aid to South Vietnam as North Vietnam attacked it. The results: the South Vietnamese military ran out of fuel, bullets, shells and all the necessities of a modern military at war, thus handing victory on a silver platter, so to speak, to the North Vietnamese Communists. Further results: holocaust on the Cambodian people committed by the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, backed by the North Vietnamese, the drownings of untold thousands of ‘boat people’ trying to escape South Vietnam after the Democrat approved North Vietnamese victory, and the establishment in the former South Vietnamese territories of so-called re-education camps where hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Vietnamese were sent to learn the evil of their support of capitalism and the United States. The left Democrats of the US Congress prove every chance they get that they are anti-freedom, anti-life and basically anti-American. Their fellow travellers in the major media, both written and broadcast, are so far in the tank for leftists and their causes that newspapers, television and radio around the country with a leftist slant are losing both listeners and readers at a rate that should alarm some of them but which they carry as a badge of honor, rather like flying the flag when the ship is going down. I don’t say, because I don’t believe it true, that someone or something is coordinating this leftist assault, but I do say that this constant anti-freedom and anti-American drumbeat bodes ill for our nation’s future, especially when the President of the United States himself dithers while our oil-based economy runs out of gas, using the flim-flam excuse of reducing non-existent global warming by refusing to allow oil drilling off our coasts and in federal lands. I hope that Representative King’s committee does what it needs to do:bring Muslim extremism into the light of day and show it and its apologists up for what they really are: angry sympathizers and enablers of murderers.
