On your taxpayer dime. Hat tip to the Daily Roll Call blog who writes U.S Attorney To Supress 1st Amend in Tennessee:
How dare this U.S attorney and the agent from FBI tell us how to be ethical. How dare them to try to intimidate citizens of the United States by suggesting writing blogs and media it’s a federal crime to tell the facts about political islam.
This is not about religion and “culture” this is political. First amendment rights once again being suppressed.
Why is a U.S Attorney and the lead Law Enforcement agency in this country addressing this issue in Tennessee, in a small town to boot?

A special meeting has been scheduled for the stated purpose of increasing awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles.
“Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society” will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, at the Manchester-Coffee County Conference Center, 147 Hospitality Blvd.
Special speakers for the event will be Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and Kenneth Moore, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Knoxville Division.
Sponsor of the event is the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee — a 15-member board formed two years ago when the General Assembly was considering passing legislation that would restrict those who worship Sharia Law, which is followed by Muslims.
AMAC is a CAIR-like Islamic group that has fully infiltrated Tennessee politics including DHS.
Killian and Moore will provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims on social media.
Killian – US Attorney
“This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian told The News Monday. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”
Killian said the presentation will also focus on Muslim culture and how, that although terrorist acts have been committed by some in the faith, they are no different from those in other religions.
Moore – FBI
He referred to the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing in which Timothy McVeigh, an American terrorist, detonated a truck bomb in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995. Commonly referred to as the Oklahoma City Bombing, the attack killed 168 people and injured more than 800.
It was the deadliest act of terrorism within the United States prior to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in U.S. history. Terry Nichols was also charged and incarcerated as a coconspirator.
Killian also referred to the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting on Aug. 5, 2012, when Wade Michael Page, an American white supremacist, fatally shot six people and wounded four others in a mass shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis. Page committed suicide by shooting himself in the head after he was shot in the stomach by a responding police officer.
“Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were both Christians as was the guy who shot up the Sikh temple,” Killian said. “Sikhs are not Muslim, Many people think they are Muslim, but they split off with the Hindu religion.”
We know that is an outright lie. McVeigh said he was agnostic and was unrepentant in a CNN interview. Meanwhile, Islam rewards Muslims who kill non-Muslims or even Muslims deemed to be apostates.
Killian referred to a Facebook posting made by Coffee County Commissioner Barry West that showed a picture of a man pointing a double-barreled shotgun at a camera lens with the caption saying, “How to Wink at a Muslim.”
Where were Killian and Moore when a Tenn. Congressional Candidate Received Death Threats for Opposing Mosque?
Killian said he and Moore had discussed the issue.
“If a Muslim had posted ‘How to Wink at a Christian,’ could you imagine what would have happened?” he said. “We need to educate people about Muslims and their civil rights, and as long as we’re here, they’re going to be protected.”
Actually, Muslims post more direct and violent threats regularly and the feds do nothing. Take a look at Twitter or Facebook or the comments section on any anti-jihad blog. And remember Molly Norris? She had to go into hiding here in the U.S. due to Muslim death threats. Killian is a shill and a hypocrite.
Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.
“That’s what everybody needs to understand,” he said.
Killian said slide show presentations will be made.
Zak Mohyuddin, a Muslim Advisory Council member, said a shortened version of a documentary called “Welcome to Shelbyville” will also be featured.
The documentary, produced by the Public Broadcasting Service, spotlights recent demographic changes in nearby Shelbyville, with a focus on the growing number of immigrants from Latin America and Somalia with many Somalis from the Bantu minority ethnic group which practices Islam.
More taxpayer funded propaganda. See An inside look at the Shelbyville film propaganda team.
Mohyuddin said Muslims across the nation consistently issue press releases condemning terrorist acts, but the media usually does not pick up the information. He added that the apparent silence leaves the impression that Muslims do not condemn such acts.
Like Killian, Mohyuddin said word needs to be spread so more people understand the Muslim culture.
“It is in the self-interest of Muslims in the United States to counter violent extremism, because we and our children do not want to be viewed with suspicion,” Mohyuddin said. “The Muslim community is a vital resource in the fight against terrorism.”
Killian said he has made other presentations in the state about Muslim culture and civil rights laws, and the Muslims he’s become acquainted with are outstanding citizens.
“Some of the finest people I’ve met are Muslims,” he said, adding later: “We want to inform everybody about what the law is, but more importantly, we want to provide what the law means to Muslims, Hindus and every other religion in the country.
They always throw Hindus and Jews. It’s about Islam and for Muslims to shut up and submit non-Muslims. Plain and simple.
“It’s why we came here in the first place. In England, they were using Christianity to further their power in government. That’s why the First Amendment is there.”
Clearly these thugs want to impose their interpretation of the First Amendment and Islamic blasphemy laws on non-Muslims.
Jerry Gordon at The Iconoclast asks, Will Free Speech be upheld in Manchester, Tennessee on June 4th?
Tennesseans are rightly incensed that some government official is going to tell them that their exercise of free speech may be a violation of a law yet to be on the law books. That smacks of thought control ala Big Brother in George Orwell’s, 1984. Muslims overseas have perfected that thought control proposal in the EU and UK hate speech laws subjecting politicians in Holland, housewives in Austria, editors in Denmark and protesters in the UK to criminal prosecution. Think it can’t happen here? Guess again. Under the Patriot Act our government has the authority to issue letters intruding on your email and social media to combat terrorism, whatever that definition means. It is just a small step to enlarge upon the language and extend it to cover hate speech.
So what should the good citizens of the Volunteer State do on the evening of June 4th? They might consider attending the Manchester Coffee County Conference Center AMACTN program primed to ask questions during the Q+A. Some might chose to parade on the sidewalks outside with posters and handouts rebutting the misinformation inside. Still others might organize a press conference out front and invite the AMACTN organizers, the US Attorney and FBI Special Agent to a separate event to learn about the foreign threats to our protected free speech under the US Constitution. These actions would demonstrate that Tennesseans and all Americans will not be intimidated. Maybe then the message will get across that free speech was the first right guaranteed in the Bill of Rights of our Constitution. It is first above all amendments guaranteeing our liberties and freedoms against government tyranny.
Update 2: Politico has picked up the story, Feds suggest anti-Muslim speech can be punished.
A U.S. attorney in Tennessee is reportedly vowing to use federal civil rights statutes to clamp down on offensive and inflammatory speech about Islam.
Offensive to whom?
the DOJ and FBI have not scheduled meetings addressing the concerns of any other group but Muslims. Twelve such outreach sessions are planned for Tennessee alone.
Contact Your Elected Officials ASAP. Tell them you will not allow your 1st Amendment rights to be trampled and dictated by Islam and corrupt U.S. attorney’s working for a corrupt Attorney General. This may be Bill Killian’s interpretation but he is wrong. Many blogs have picked this up and the tone is very defeatist as if this is some new law. It is not. Stand up. Speak up. Fight back.
And with all due respect, don’t leave a comment that “it does no good” and then sit on your ass and complain. As the tyrannical attempts to dismantle the 2nd Amendment proved, it can be effective despite a corrupt and complicit media and polling agencies that intentionally lie to the public.
We told you Muslims were demanding DOJ enforce sharia blasphemy laws on Americans back in 2010:
