Jihad Watch Wins CPAC Award, Barred From Receiving It

via Always On Watch

Robert Spencer writes:

I was surprised and honored that Jihad Watch was among the nominees for the People’s Choice Blog Award, sponsored by Right Wing News and TheTeaParty.net, to be awarded at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2013.

… Jihad Watch won decisively, getting over 50% of the vote in a field of fifteen….

But as time went by and no announcement was made of this victory, and the voting continued despite my having been told that it officially ended last Friday night and that I had won, and the promised links and other placement promised to the winning blog didn’t materialize, I started to wonder. So I contacted the organizer who had written me telling me I won and asked him what was going on.

He told me that there was a slight problem: the Tea Party group, which co-sponsored this People’s Choice Blog Award, didn’t want to allow me to receive it at CPAC next week unless I promised not to criticize Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan as I accepted the award.

I told the organizer that I couldn’t agree to that. He asked me if I had planned to talk about Grover and Suhail. I said no, I hadn’t, but I had to now.

Kudos to Robert Spencer and more shame on CPAC for the questionable TheTeaParty.net affiliation. It’s leaders here.

So that’s that. The People’s Choice Blog Award is now the Grover’s Choice Blog Award. I will not be going to CPAC and will not be receiving this award.

And since I will not be allowed to receive this award at CPAC, I will talk about Norquist and Khan here.

As I wrote in this article:

Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) called Norquist out for this on the House floor in October 2011, saying of the anti-tax hero: “Documentation shows that he has deep ties to supporters of Hamas and other terrorist organizations that are sworn enemies of the United States and our ally Israel.” He pointed out that “around the years 2000 and 2001, Mr. Norquist’s firm represented Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was convicted two years later for his role in a terrorist plot and who is presently serving a 23-year sentence in federal prison.”Norquist, reported Wolf, “also associated with terror financier Sami Al-Arian, according to Mary Jacoby’s reporting in March 2003, in the St. Petersburg Times. Al-Arian pled guilty in 2006 ‘to a charge of conspiring to provide services to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), a specially designated terrorist organization, in violation of U.S. law,’ and is under house arrest, according to a Department of Justice press release. The Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s ‘paramilitary wing—the al-Quds Brigades—has conducted numerous attacks, including large-scale suicide bombings,’ according to the National Counterterrorism Center.”

  1. This is outrages, can we not trust anyone? You do so much hard work to inform us about how the terrorists are taking over our country!

  2. So the heads of the TEA PARTY REFUSED THE JIHAD WATCH FROM RECEIVING THERE AWARD ON CPAC CONVENTION, THEN THE TEA PARTY IS OFF MY RADAR!!!! NORQUEST AND KAHN ARE TRULY MUSLIM LOVERS AND MEMBERS AND NEED TO KICKED OUT OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!!!

  3. No narrow victory. No stuffed ballots. No offshore funding. The simple fact that 52% of those voting chose Jihad Watch I understand the decision from the standpoint that Americans cannot decide what to call foreign nationals who preach and act out the destruction of the American way of life and its Western Cultural foundations. Although ‘being nice’ and ‘kumbayah’ are mantras of grade schools, except for moslemic/gulen, institutions they are not the basis of international relations, especially with moslems. Just as children know who is winning in ‘scoreless’ athletic contests, adults should know that those wanting them either dead or enslaved are their enemies.

  4. I restate, this is good in one respect: It forces these so-called “awakened Giants,” fierce Patriots, to show their true colors.

    Wake up America.

  5. Hey, Robert. I feel “led” to speak on behalf of the “Patriots.”

    Dear Robert.

    With respect to your award, frankly, I think you should be thankful you won it. Be thankful, your name was even one amongst the line-up of names allowed voters to cast a vote on.

    On the “present” promised, look, chill out a bit … It is not like we plan to keep it from you. We have full plans to put it out behind the building, right by the dumpster, along with the remains of dinner–the very night of the award giving no less.

    You can send your dog up the alley in after it. If you have no dog, call me, I can lend you one.

    With our deepest respect for you and your work, Sir.

    The Tea Party Patriots

  6. I watched his interview on Sun News. Mr. Robert Spencer, a man of honour. Totally unlike those who denied him the award.

  7. A little clarity, it’s the Tea Party.net, not Tea Party Patriots or even the Tea Party, iy’s the phony neocon group, it’s suspected that it is supported by lil Grover. So don’t write off the Tea Party.
    Make no mistake about Grover and Sulli they are both evil dirtbags that are infiltrating all that they can in America, to know how organizations work and can be corrupted. Stay the course Mr. Spencer they are running scared!

  8. To Creeping Sharia and Robert Spencer – Thank you for your courageous fight regarding the deceptive and diabolical nature of the entire islamist agenda. May our God give you renewed grace and strength to bear up under the forces of evil that you confront daily. Please do not ever change your policies to expose these anti-American wolves-in-sheep’s-clothing! PLEASE!!! PLEASE!!! PLEASE!!! AND GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!

  9. We need a Robert Spencer in Canada, Europe, the UK, Australia and where ever the threat of Jihad exists and if you do your research as Spencer does you will find the threat much greater than most realize. Please keep up the great work Robert, you are appreciated more than you know! Wilberforce.

  10. We may not realize it but these seditionists, murderers and rapists are actually AFRAID of us!!!!! Don’t kid yourself–”RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU”–is not just a fairy tale–IT’S GOD’S ETERNAL WORD!!!!! On the other hand, muslims have a SELF-PROCLAIMED prophet and a middle-eastern moon god for their sources of authority!!!!!

    I REPEAT– “RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU”!!!!!

  11. Yes, dapreach, I noticed the effect.

    Thus, the Muslims fleeing from us, like to have torn my head off, as well as a few thousand other attached heads, in their stampeding for the water lines, hell for leather, (similar to what you stated), making for safety from us and the punishment awaiting them within our shores.

    Indeed, a wonderful day for us. Indeed.

  12. Yes indeed, and I repeat, “RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE/ SHE WILL FLEE FROM YOU!!!!!” You know, ‘dlbrand’, you really needed to hear that one because, clearly you are a muslimized, air-head!!!!! HOW ‘BOUT CRAWLING BACK UNDER YOUR 7TH CENTURY ROCK!!!!! OH, AND TAKE YOUR DOG WITH YOU–OR IS THAT A CAMEL?????

    P.S. REMEMBER IT’S LITTLE BITTY KING DAVID (A LITTLE TEENAGE SHEPHERD BOY) WHO KILLED THE GIANT–NOT THE OTHER WAY ‘ROUND!!!!! AND HE USED GOLIATH’S OWN SWORD IN ORDER TO FINISH THE JOB!!!!!

    MAY YOU REAP DOUBLE THE KIND OF TREATMENT THAT YOU DISH OUT TO OTHERS!!!!! OH, I FORGOT, THEY CAN ONLY CHOP MY HEAD OFF ONE TIME–THAT MEANS YOU MUST HAVE TWO HEADS IN ORDER TO REAP DOUBLE!!!! Hmmm! WHO KNEW?????
