How to Manufacture an Anti-Muslim Hate-Crime "Epidemic"

By Rick Pearcey • December 23, 2015, 08:20 AM

Michelle Malkin detects 4 steps essential to creating such an outcome:

Step 1: "Find an expert with an impressive-sounding academic title to legitimize shoddy advocacy propaganda."
        
In this case, "meet Brian Levin," Malkin advises. "He's the one-man band behind something called the "Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism" at California State University, San Bernardino. The 'center' (that is: Levin) claims to be 'nonpartisan' and 'objective.' But he is a former top staffer of the militant, conservative-smearing Southern Poverty Law Center, which was forced to apologize earlier this year after including famed black neurosurgeon and GOP 2016 candidate Ben Carson on its "extremist watch list" of hate groups. . . ."

Step 2: "Enlist gullible, lazy, biased, and complicit journalists who recycle the 'expert's' sweeping pronouncements as proven facts, backed up by other ideologically vested advocacy group spokespeople. . . ."

Step 3: "Attack the messenger. After I published a lengthy post on my blog outlining an epidemic of Muslim hate-crime hoaxes at colleges, mosques and businesses dating back to 2001, Levin took to Twitter to accuse me of 'smears.' The facts, which the rest of the media failed to inform readers about while hyping Levin's work this week, speak for themselves (see michellemalkin.com)."
        
Step 4: "Classify this article as 'hate' and any media outlet that publishes it as a 'hate group' so that other journalists shun the truth and continue perpetuating the hoax."

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how a garden-variety extremist propagandist can organize false impressions to fundamentally transform the people and politics of the USA.

Breaking From the U.S., the U.K. Condemns the Muslim Brotherhood as Terrorist Group

By Rick Pearcey • December 22, 2015, 10:52 AM

From Steve Emerson and Pete Hoekstra at National Review:

Following an intensive 18-month governmental study, the United Kingdom  issued a startling indictment of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). It described the organization as fiercely anti-democratic, openly supportive of terrorism, dedicated to establishing an Islamist government, and opposed to the rule of law, individual liberty, and equality.

We use the word "startling" not because this is news but because, in such a politically correct world, it took guts for a world leader to acknowledge the obvious about a movement that purports to represent more than a billion people. If anyone at all -- in particular our own president, former secretary of state, and high priesthood of political correctness, the New York Times -- had simply bothered to read the Brotherhood’s own words, they would have inescapably reached the same conclusion.

"America is accustomed to its role as the Shining City on that Hill," Emerson and Hoekstra conclude. "In the past seven years, however, it has receded to being a mole hiding under a rock and waiting for an attack. We have only ourselves to blame. We need to remove from power those whose blind ideology placed the American people in such a vulnerable position."

"Um, the Uh, Uh": Hillary Staffer Stammers While Defending Clinton "Videos" Attack on Trump

By Rick Pearcey • December 21, 2015, 10:40 AM

David Rutz reports at FoxNews.com:

Hillary Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri struggled Sunday to defend her boss' claim that videos of Donald Trump's anti-Muslim rhetoric were being used as recruitment tools for the Islamic State.

Appearing on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Palmieri appeared uncomfortable backing Clinton's claim at Saturday's debate that fact-checkers from the New York Post and PolitiFact have debunked.  

"Um, the uh, uh, you know, Donald Trump, I think, was talking–uh, you know, what Secretary Clinton was saying last night is that one of the many dangerous things about Donald Trump is that, uh, his hot rhetoric, saying we shouldn't allow Muslim refugees into the country, is being used, and this is something that [an international group] has, who monitors social media and uh, on ISIS, has said --" the Clinton staffer is quoted as saying "before Stephanopoulos cut in," according to Fox News.

"But there have been no videos," Fox quotes Stephanopoulos as saying.

"Well, what they have said is that they are using him -- he is being used in social media by ISIS as propaganda," Palmieri reportedly said "sounding almost out of breath." Fox reports.

Hillary Clitnon "didn’t have a particular video in mind, but he's being used in social media, and uh, you know, what they haven't found is the video Mr. Trump keeps talking about, this alleged mystery video of thousands of people in Jersey cheering the collapse of the World Trade Center. But it is true he is being used in social media by, um, ISIS, to, to help recruit and propaganda," Palmieri said, according to Fox.

“But to be clear, you don’t have a video, as she said," Stephanopoulos stated, Fox reports (emphasis added).

Meanwhile, "She's" -- that is, Hillary Clinton's -- "a liar and everybody knows that," Donald Trump said Sunday on Meet the Press, in response to Clinton's accusation made during Saturday evening's Democrat debate, Newsmax reports.

Foolish Kentucky School Censors "Charlie Brown" Christmas

By Rick Pearcey • December 17, 2015, 10:29 AM

Cheryl Chumley reports at WND:

A school district in Kentucky has ordered all administrators under its jurisdiction to remove religious references from Christmas productions, leading one facility to censor its planned elementary presentation of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" to blot out the Gospel of Luke read by little Linus.

"It disappoints me that we have to do this," said Superintendent Tom Salyer, about the order to teachers at W.R. Castle Elementary School to take out the Gospel of Luke recitation given by Linus in the decades-old cartoon "Charlie Brown" production, Fox News reported.

"Salyer said he was a church-going man who was simply following advice from the Johnson County school district attorneys," WND reports.

Mr. Salyer should reject this foolish advice, for nothing in the Declaration of Independence or in the U.S. Constitution requires the censorship of "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

The 1st Amendment, in fact, places a limit on what Congress can do, not a limit on what states like Kentucky can do and not a limit on what public schools or individual people can do.

Congress, the 1st Amendment pointedly states, "shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

The wise and pro-Christian purpose of the 1st Amendment is to keep the federal government from allowing a denomination of the Christian church to become the state church of the United States of America.

The 1st Amendment thus stands against a national state denominational church -- not against Christianity. And not against Christianity in the name of secularism. (Let us not forget that one of the lessons of the 20th century is that, out of its own inner philosophic necessity, secularism breeds unfreedom and inhumanity.)

Instead, the aim of the 1st Amendment is to protect the individual states from a federal monopoly of political and ecclesiastical power. It is not designed to unleash and impose a Christian-hating secular terror upon the American people.

In the constitutional affirmation of liberty, the individual states were -- and are -- free to create their own denominational state churches, if that is the desire of the citizens of the respective states. It is a matter of choice left to the states and not to the federal government.

The last thing either the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence has in mind is the removal of Christianity from public life and from public influence across the whole of life. That view is secular superstition.

After all, the entire body politic of the American initiative is rooted in the Biblical concept of there being a real Creator who has created human beings in his image and has endowed human beings with "certain unalienable rights," and that among them are "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." This is about as unsecular as it gets.

Furthermore, the point of the U.S. Constitution is to incarnate politically and governmentally those principles of human freedom and dignity, rooted in the Creator, that are expressed in the Declaration. Yes, it is possible to think and act holistically when founding a nation "conceived in liberty."

What follows is clear: Public school officials in Kentucky and in every state are entirely within their rights as human beings and as citizens of the United States to stage plays that speak clearly and dramatically about the facts and message of the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. 

This is the mainstream and humane position of human freedom and dignity, and of an American citizen's freedom and dignity, under God, as expressed in the genius of the American founding.

Against this, secular extremists have created a fairy tale of legalistic mythology to support their ahistorical beliefs regarding the 1st Amendment, the Constitution, and a freedom-denying secularistic society.

As the news reminds us virtually every day, this extremism wars against who we are as human beings -- and against who we are as American citizens -- alive to living in liberating community with God and man in the total circle of life.

This extremism should be rejected, and must be rejected root and branch, if the tree of liberty is to survive and thrive. Either that or face the fundamental transformation of America into utter regressiveness and lack of humanness.

America is about freedom to live in the light and to reject the darkness -- on stages, in schools, at football games, in the marketplace, and in the halls of Congress. This truly is love without limits.

This is who we are. And if we would be free tomorrow and the day after, this is who we must ever shall be.

Pew: Public Trusts Republicans Over Democrats on Guns, Terror, Economy, Immigration

By Rick Pearcey • December 16, 2015, 12:55 PM

A.W.R. Hawkins reports at Breitbart:

A Pew Research Poll released December 15 shows the American public trusts Republicans over Democrats when it comes to guns, terrorism, and the economy.

The public also trusts Republicans over Democrats when it comes to immigration.

According to PEW, the public supports Republicans on guns by a margin of 43 percent to 37 percent. Regarding the "terror threat," the public sides with Republicans over Democrats 46 percent to 34 percent. On the economy they side with Republicans by a margin of 42 percent to 37 percent.

"The public supports Republicans over Democrats by a slimmer margin on Immigration, 42 percent to 40 percent, but it is one more area where the American public looks to them instead of to Democrats," Hawkins reports.

NRA Hits Back at New York Daily News, "Godless Left"

By Rick Pearcey • December 15, 2015, 09:23 AM

Sandy Fitzgerald reports at Newsmax:

The National Rifle Association is firing back at the New York Daily News for its "God Isn't Fixing This" headline after the San Bernardino shootings, aiming a video at the newspaper and the "Godless Left" in a wide-ranging attack on its "global alliance of elitists and media activists and Hollywood celebrities and campus radicals and political power mongers."

The video, narrated by conservative pundit Dana Loesch, and sponsored by gun maker Kimber, . . . [lambastes] people on the left "who have openly attacked sacred American values and the people who cherish them with ruthlessness, contempt and downright hatred," reports the Washinton Post.

"These people, Loesch says, share 'the same fanatical fervor to tear apart the foundations of America as the terrorists who threaten our very survival'," Newsmax reports.

"And the New York newspaper, says Loesch in the video," according to Newsmax, 'became the loudest, vilest, most condescending voice for what many people call the Godless Left.'

"'These false prophets at this failing excuse for a newspaper claimed to enjoy special knowledge of God's plans somehow . . . even as they mocked the entire concept of religion," Newsmax quotes Loesch as saying. 

"But as most Americans turned to prayer for the wounded and the world," Newsmax states, "political and media elites joined forces to insult and mock and disparage them . . . and in so doing, laid bare the utter moral depravity of the Godless Left," Loesch is quoted as saying.

"Loesch doesn't only speak of the shootings and the newspaper," Newsmax reports, "but ties in Benghazi and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, calling her the 'queen of the movement'."

GunTV: New TV Channel Will Sell Guns, Guns, and Guns -- Video

Matt Vespa writes:

Starting January 20, 2016, there will be an all-gun home shopping network entering America’s homes.

Liberals will surely suffer mental breakdowns, as law-abiding Americans exercise their Second Amendment rights buying guns from the comfort of their residences. And it's not just guns.

The Hill reports that ammunition and accessories will be featured for purchase, but this won’t be like shopping on QVC. . . ."

At Least 72 Homeland Employees on Terrorist Watch List

By Rick Pearcey • December 7, 2015, 09:08 AM

Adam Kredo reports at the Washington Free Beacon:

At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also "were on the terrorist watch list."

"Lynch said he has 'very low confidence' in DHS based on its many failures over the years. For this reason, he voted in favor of recent legislation that will tighten the vetting process for any Syrian refugees applying for asylum in the United States," the Free Beacon reports.

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

While many liberal observers, including President Barack Obama, were ruminating over whether the mass shooting in California was "terrorist-related" or "workplace-related," Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell, looking at the evidence available, said it was "not a terrorist attack" but "is an act of war."

Breitbart: "Welcoming" Christian Charities Try to Crush Americans' "Pockets of Resistance" to Muslim Migration

By Rick Pearcey • December 2, 2015, 09:31 AM

Michael Patrick Leahy writes at Breitbart:

The nine contractors receiving huge payments from the White House’s $1billion U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program have launched an aggressive PR campaign to crush what they call "pockets of resistance" to the Muslim migration into the United States.

That campaign is led by Welcoming America, a "non-profit" immigrant advocacy group run by “Ashoka Fellow” David Lubell. His group received its first funding in 2007 from the George Soros-financed Four Freedoms Foundation.

"The Obama administration intends to bring at least 10,000 Syrian refugees, almost all Muslim, to the U.S. in FY 2016, unless Congress decides this month to restrict the program's use of taxpayers' funds," Leahy writes.

"Five of these nine 'voluntary agencies,' dubbed VOLAGs, are Christian non-profit organizations," Leahy explains. "They include Catholic Charities, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Church World Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, and World Relief Corporation, which is an arm of the National Association of Evangelicals."

According to Leahy, "the phrase 'pockets of resistance' first entered the vocabulary of the State Department and the subcontracting VOLAGs in 2013, as Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch wrote at the time. But its origins can be traced to the founding of Lubell’s Welcoming America, which was financially aided by George Soros."

Welcoming America has since "scrubbed the link to George Soros and the Four Freedoms Fund that was once on its website," Leahy notes. "The screenshot showing that connection, however, can still be found using the Internet Wayback Machine here."

Meanwhile, "lopsided majorities of Americans strongly oppose the migration of Muslims to the United States," Leahy writes. He explains:

Muslim migrants tend to be unskilled, heavily reliant on taxpayer-funded welfare programs, reluctant to integrate into Americans' society, are under intense pressure from fellow migrants to preserve their own mix of religion, culture and politics, relatively likely to join jihad groups -- 56 Muslims were indicted on jihad charges in the first 11 months of 2015 -- and to support pro-jihad political groups.

"Yet the federal government is set to increase their population in the United States up to 6.2 million by 2030," Leahy writes. "For example, a record 680,000 migrants from Muslims countries were granted Green Cards from 2009 to 2013. Also, two million people from Muslim-majority countries were admitted to the United States since the jihad atrocity on 9/11, 2001."

According to Leahy, "In the immediate aftermath of the Paris attacks in which ISIS terrorists killed more than 120 innocent civilians, Welcoming America went into action, leading the way for the Christian 'non-profit' VOLAGs that live on the $1 billion a year Refugee Resettlement program.

As noted by Leahy, Welcoming America released November 18 the following statement:

This past week has been one of great loss, and all of us at Welcoming America are deeply saddened by the tragic events in Paris, Beirut, Nigeria, and other parts of the world. It is particularly at times of tragedy and fear -- when our values and resolve are most tested -- that we must redouble our efforts to live up to our ideals, including serving as a beacon of hope to the persecuted. We must demonstrate our welcoming character because This is Who We Are.

Families from Syria who are seeking a better life embody American values that have guided our country since its founding -- packing up everything and moving to a new place takes courage and resilience. They’ve defied all odds to arrive in a safe place, and we have the opportunity to reaffirm our values by responding with compassion. Moreover, communities are stronger when they are welcoming.

We are deeply heartened by declarations of welcoming toward Syrian refugees coming from all corners of the country, from community members to religious leaders to mayors and governors. These voices, largely emanating from local communities, have unfortunately not been fully heard by many in this country. At Welcoming America we will be working to elevate the voices of the compassionate majority, reminding America and the world that this is who we are.

To that effect, we have created a This is Who We Are page where we are compiling a list of statements and actions coming from communities is support of Syrian refugees, and we invite you to help us grow this list. If you have an inspiring quote or story of welcome, please share it with us.

"Democratic politicians — and the 'faith leaders' tied to VOLAGs and the $1 billion in funding -- quickly added their voices to the Welcoming America statement," Leahy writes.

Among the "three 'faith leaders,' all associated with VOLAGs," who "joined in as well, offering these statements of support for continuing to fund the $1 billion U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program" Leahy notes, is this from Leith Anderson, "President of the National Association of Evangelicals [corresponding VOLAG-World Relief]":

We are horrified and heartbroken by the terrorist atrocities in Paris, but must not forget that there are thousands more victims of these same terrorists who are fleeing Syria with their families and desperately need someplace to go

And yet, "despite the concerted PR efforts of Welcoming America, Democratic politicians, and 'faith leaders' associated with the VOLAGs," Leahy notes, "there is a growing variety of 'pockets of resistance' by normal Americans to this massive wave of Muslim migration."

Leahy concludes: "As more light is shed on the close connection between the Obama administration, George Soros, and the non-profit Christian VOLAGS, those 'pockets of resistance' are likely to become even more widespread."

CDC: 76.4% of Aborted Babies in NYC Are Black or Hispanic

By Rick Pearcey • December 1, 2015, 08:29 AM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

The latest abortion surveillance report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which was published on Friday but covers the year 2012, shows that in New York City 76.4% of the abortions reported by race were of black and Hispanic babies.

"Blacks make up 25.5% of the population in New York City, according to the Census Bureau, and Hispanics comprise 28.6% of the population. Yet Hispanics and blacks equal 76.4% of the abortions in New York City," Chapman reports.
