OBAMA AND JIHAD: APPEASEMENT & DENIAL

OBAMA AND JIHAD: APPEASEMENT & DENIAL
(Return to Table of Contents)

Assistant Attorney General Refuses to Say Whether Justice Department Might Ever Criminalize Speech Against any Religion

  • In early August 2012, Obama's Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez (of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division) was asked, by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), a member of the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution: “Will you tell us here today that this Administration's Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?” Perez refused to answer, four separate times.
  • Breitbart.com provided some context for this: “Last October [2011], at George Washington University, there was a meeting between DOJ officials, including Perez, and Islamist advocates against free speech.... At the meeting, the Islamists lobbied for: cutbacks in U.S. anti-terror training; limits on the power of terrorism investigators; changes in agent training manuals; [and] a legal declaration that criticism of Islam in the United States should be considered racial discrimination. Aziz said that the word 'Muslim' has become 'racialized' and, once American criticism of Islam was silenced, the effect would be to 'take [federal] money away from local police departments and fusion centers who are spying on all of us.' And what was the response from Perez and the DOJ officials? Nothing. That’s right: no objection, no defense of our first amendment right to free speech.”

Obama Bans any Mention of Jihad from Federal Counter-Terrorism Training Materials

  • In 2011, shortly after hard-Left journalist Spencer Ackerman wrote a series of “exposes” that supposedly exposed “Islamophobia” in government counterterror training, Farhana Khera, executive director of an Islamic organization called Muslim Advocates, wrote a letter (on October 19 of that year) to Barack Obama’s then-Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism (and later CIA director) John Brennan. The letter was signed by 57 organizations, including many with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Among these were the Council on American-Islamic Relations; the Islamic Circle of North America; Islamic Relief USA; the Islamic Society of North America; the Muslim American Society; and the Muslim Public Affairs Council.

    The letter demanded that Obama officials “purge all federal government training materials of biased materials”—that is, materials that they claimed were biased against Islam—and “implement a mandatory re-training program for FBI agents, U.S. Army officers, and all federal, state and local law enforcement who have been subjected to biased training.”

    The Obama Administration immediately complied. Dwight C. Holton, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, emphasized that same day that training materials for the FBI would be purged of everything that Islamic supremacists deemed offensive: “I want to be perfectly clear about this: training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a tendency towards violence are wrong, they are offensive, and they are contrary to everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice stands for. They will not be tolerated.”
