Defense of the Constitution

In an article carried by
MyrtleBeachOnline.com, Rep. Sue Myrick says she wants
America to “wake up”
and do something about terrorism.
To that end, Rep. Myrick has introduced a
ten-points plan apparently designed to both alert Americans to the
threat of terrorism and also lay out a blue-print for taking action now
to hopefully prevent incidents in future.
Among Myrick’s points (Wake Up America”) is a
call for examining the tax exempt status of the Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) a Washington, D.C. based front group
that supports Islamist terrorism and Islamist terrorists in North
When Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR spokesman, was asked
about Myrick’s plan, he attempted to tie in valid
concerns about CAIR
to "anti-Muslim hate sites" on the internet:
"It sounds like your
usual laundry list of talking points you can see
on anti-Muslim hate sites on the Internet"
Typical of Hoopers disingenuous attempt to
paint CAIR as the innocent victim, he completely failed to explain why
CAIR shouldn’t be investigated.
instance, can Hooper:
that CAIR receives foreign
accusations that CAIR actively supports
Islamist terrorists and terrorist groups?
that CAIR is not in America as part of a plan to overthrow
the government and replace it with an Islamic theocracy?
just how CAIR should retain its tax exempt
status in light of CAIR’s dirty hands?
Hooper can’t credibly
defend CAIR from any of these accusations and he knows it.
So, he does the next best thing which is to
play the “woe is us” card.
It looks like Rep. Myrick is one of those few
in the Congress who “gets it”
when it comes to radical Islam.
We wish her luck in her investigation of CAIR
and we have no doubt that if she is able to fully
investigate CAIR that not only will CAIR’s tax exempt status be in
jeopardy, perhaps the whole
organization will be as well ...
