CAIR-MN insists that it’s a civil rights organization that works closely with the FBI. This article provides proof that isn’t true, stating “The Fiscal Year 2013 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations Bill, which passed the House on Wednesday, contains in its Committee Report (a separate public document that spells out how agencies are expected to spend the money allocated to them) a recommendation that Attorney General Eric Holder follow in the FBI’s footsteps and sever ties with CAIR”:
The committee understands that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has an existing policy prohibiting its employees from engaging in any formal non-investigative cooperation with CAIR. The committee encourages the attorney general to adopt a similar policy for all department officials.
This isn’t Fox News reporting. This is from an official House committee report saying that the FBI has severed ties with CAIR.
CAIR specializes in propaganda. That’s what they specialized in with the Dismantling Hate Crimes event. They did that even after the event was postponed. When Jaylani Hussein, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Minnesota, arrived from the Twin Cities after the event was cancelled. Hussein started spreading his propaganda virtually immediately. That carried into Thursday, too.
On Thursday, Hussein said “The idea behind it was pretty large, not specifically just addressing Islamophobia. Unfortunately, as we know, Islamophobia is an issue in St. Cloud, and the postponement, I guess, was evident of that.”
He continued, saying “We are not talking to someone that has legitimate claims; we are talking to people clearly showing a racist as well as a xenophobic and white nationalist agenda. And that’s the unfortunate reality.”
What’s unfortunate is that Hussein criticized St. Cloud without a basis for his opinion. Then again, as a propagandist, his responsibility is to criticize people he knows nothing about. That’s what happened in this instance.
Hussein said Freedom Speaks Coalition is a hate group that uses anti-Muslim statements to further its agenda. He also said groups that feed into white nationalist groups are really the ones who could potentially put community members at risk.
“St. Cloud residents cannot allow for a small fringe group of haters to dominate and take over the narrative of what St. Cloud is and who it is,” Hussein said. “There should be concern about these hate groups who are creating a very unsafe environment to the point where talks like these are not taking place.
“More people, more residents need to shun and call these people for what they are — hate groups who are trying to create fear,” he continued. “And there are consequences to that type of activity.
It’s interesting that Hussein would say that. CAIR calls itself a civil rights organization. Fair enough but shouldn’t civil rights organizations fight for everyone’s civil rights, even for those organizations with which it disagrees? HINT TO HUSSEIN: This is the United States, home of the First Amendment. That means all organizations and people have the God-given right to disagree with others as long as they don’t put people’s lives in danger.
