Never Forget: CAIR’s Dirty Deeds

March 20th, 2019 7:15 PM
The Council on American-Islamic Relations is having a banner month. The militant Muslim group never lets a crisis go to waste. That means Americans should beware. When unappeasable CAIR is ascendant, our free speech rights, religious liberty and national security are at risk. Following the horrible massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, CAIR flacks were out in full force decrying “…

As two major Supreme Court decisions, on the travel ban and an abortion/free-speech question, were settled with 5-4 majorities, the New York Times devoted a front-page story to Trump’s selection of Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch, while anguishing over the Republican decision not to give then-President Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland a hearing in 2016, in “G.O.P.

Should the Trump administration interact with religious leaders? It depends.

December 16th, 2016 11:47 AM
On Thursday, Newsweek's Lucy Westcott forwarded possible excuses for Yasmin Seweid's fake account about anti-Muslim men attacking her on New York City's subway.

November 28th, 2016 1:35 PM
Monday's New Day on CNN played up how a young Muslim woman, Marwa Abdelghani, stopped wearing the traditional Islamic head scarf after an alleged spitting incident before Election Day: "It was getting closer and closer to November 8.

CAIR: These 'Islamophobic' Conservatives Must Be Rejected Like the KKK

June 21st, 2016 12:14 PM
The media’s favorite radical Muslim-rights advocacy group just released a new report on what else? Islamophobia. The Council for American-Islamic Relations (“CAIR”), which the media routinely ask to speak for the American Muslim community and has it’s own share of controversy, is now attacking many on the right for daring to associate terrorism with Islam. As many as 74 groups, individuals and…

June 2nd, 2016 4:25 PM
The headline in Thursday’s New York Times captured the melodrama: “Political Climate of Fear Galvanizes Muslims to Vote.” Carol Pogash, a freelance writer and editor who once compared Trump to murderous Communist dictator Mao Tse-Tung and who finds her own inspiration in Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Larry Wilmore, continued the paper’s never-ending search for Islamophobia with her report…

NYT Desperately Scours Land for Islamophobia, Finds It in Beer Cans

February 17th, 2016 8:33 PM
Desperately hyping up any instances of alleged “Islamophobia” it can find, the New York Times on Wednesday covered tensions between students living in a high-rise at the University of Arizona, and the members of an adjacent mosque. There’s not much newsworthy going on, but reporter Fernanda Santos managed to spin it into the lead story of Wednesday’s National section: “University of Arizona…

December 21st, 2015 9:12 AM
It's rare when a politician says something surprising, or doesn't succumb to a feel-good suggestion. Which made Rick Santorum's response to Joe Scarborough this morning doubly remarkable. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough had teed Santorum up to agree with his suggestion that we need to "reach out aggressively to let Muslim Americans know that they are every bit a part of the American dream as…

NYT's Semple Strikes Again With Anecdotal 'Islamophobia' on A1

December 15th, 2015 1:09 PM
The latest from New York Times reporter Kirk Semple on the front page of Tuesday’s Times, “Muslim Youth in U.S. Feel Strain of Suspicion,” demonstrates that the paper’s strongest impulse after Islamic terror attacks is not to investigate what went wrong but to fret over perceived, anecdotal “Islamophobia” among their fellow citizens. It’s much like his previous, anecdote-heavy, statistic-free “…

Chris Hayes & Co. Baffled By San Bernardino Motive

December 3rd, 2015 9:36 PM
Rudy Giuliani has said that if you can't figure out that what happened in San Bernardino was an act of terror, "you're a moron."
