This week CAIR MN, the state chapter of the Council on Islamic American Relations, released a badly written jeremiad targeting its critics. CAIR is a terrorist linked organization that claims to speak for all Muslims. It does not but local media, those supine creatures, do their best to make it appear so.
CAIR MN was joined in this Regressive Left agitprop effort by ISAIAH, a fake, far Left faux religious group that pretends to spirituality and transcendence. Neither organization has any credibility outside of our media which carries their water.
CAIR is a front group in America for Hamas. This is never pointed out by Minnesota media because they’ve gone along with the mirage that CAIR is simply another civil rights organization. It is anything but.
Daniel Pipes wrote the definitive article about who and what CAIR is; naturally you’ll never read about it in the local press. “CAIR: Islamists Fooling the Establishment” should be required reading for our local media but honestly, they’re not a bright lot. I say this with no personal rancor but simply as a conclusion after having followed them closely for some time.
They are easy marks for the propagandists at CAIR and “ISAIAH.” Minnesota media dutifully parrot whatever the talking points of the day are without much question. Media are lazy in the extreme as well and so by holding themselves out as the go to source on topics they claim exclusive control over, media are easily led. In turn, you’re mislead.

In the conclusion to its badly written broadside, CAIR MN writes:
“Those who organize and finance anti-Muslim propaganda have insulated themselves from scrutiny. They have built a network of nonprofits, carefully maintaining respectable brands while actively guiding the creation of vitriolic, cynical, embarrassing propaganda. The publishers and profiteers must be held to account, not just interchangeable, generic propagandists such as John Gilmore. Brent Robbins, the VP from General Mills; John Gibbs, the VP from Comcast; Robert Cummins, the largest donor in the Minnesota Republican party; John Hinderaker, the President and CEO of the Center of the American Experience and former partner at Faegre Baker Daniels; Kim Crockett, VP of the Center and frequent contributor to local newspapers including the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press; Ronald Eibensteiner, the former chair of the Minnesota Republican party; Mitch Perlstein (sic), the founder of the Center; Alex Kharam, the Executive Director of the Freedom Club; Jeff Johnson, the Republican Gubernatorial candidate; and everyone one else who sits on the boards of or works for Freedom Club and Center of the American Experiment merit public condemnation from across the political spectrum.”
In a word, kill the witches.
Unfortunately, and despite being quoted at length in their turgid piece, CAIR MN left out my friends Donna Azarian and Andrea Mayer Bruestle, of Deplorable Housewives, in their conclusion. They, too, need to be tied to the stake in this Islamist auto-da-fé.
For myself, I’m disappointed that I don’t appear in the cheesy infographic “Mapping the network.” And yet Azarain & Mayer Bruestle do, despite being omitted in the conclusion. Did anyone edit this thing? Or should we blame jinns?
I also take exception that I’m an “interchangeable, generic propagandist.” Islamofascist CAIR MN may not like my voice but the last thing it is, is interchangeable.
In America we get to criticize any and all religions. Islam is no exception. CAIR MN attempts to impose through dhimmitude what is de rigueur in the world’s many backward Muslim-majority countries: silence, submission.
Speaking of submission, I wrote last October that Minnesotans would do well to read the foremost living French author Michel Houellebecq’s “Submission.” That story is one in which the likes of CAIR MN gets its way with an entire nation. “Islam” itself means submission. Did you know that?

For an example of how perverse CAIR MN is in its analysis of what constitutes “anti-Muslim” bigotry, let’s take the case of me. One of the things that makes me a hater in this terrorist front group’s mind is that I supported Rep. Roz Peterson bringing in a Canadian Muslim reformer, a woman by the name of Raheel Raza.
Raza has been recognized not just by the Canadian government but by governments and organizations the world over. Her list of plaudits is longer than my relatively long arms.
Why did this make me a hater of local note? Because the fraudulent Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) had listed this woman, a Muslim, a reformer, as an “anti-Muslim bigot.” I know people say too often that you can’t make it up, but here, you really can’t.
I’m a hater because I supported the free speech rights of a Muslim woman who wants to reform her religion. Peace be upon her.
The SPLC has also listed Maajid Nawaz as a hater. He used to be an Islamofascist and ur terrorist until he changed his ways. He wrote a book about it: Radical: My Journey Out of Islamic Extremism. Nawaz sued the SPLC for slander and settled for $3.375 million. If I’m in the company of Nawaz, I’m in good company albeit without the payout.

Minnesotans are asked, bullied really, into not noticing the forced importation of peoples who not only have nothing in common with America and its values and traditions, but who want nothing to do with them. For the trouble of noticing, you will be become a target, accused of all sorts of things in the hopes that your voice will be silenced.
When you take those forcibly imported people and their religious, totalitarian ideology from the seventh century at face value, you’ll be declared to be the problem. I live this daily and I’m no hero.
What I am is someone who tries to speak honestly about what I see and why I see it the way that I do. I’m amused, somewhat, at being caught up with the blue rinse hair supporters of the Center of the American Experiment, which, praise Kek, has given the fearless Katherine Kersten a home, but which at the same time isn’t used to being on the receiving end of Minnesota’s Islamofascist attacks, abetted by our local media.
