More of the illogical ‘opposing “Muslim extremism” is anti-Muslim bigotry’ agenda, pushed heavily by WISH-TV ‘reporter’ Jim Shella.
(WISH) – Supporters of Democratic 7th District Congressman André Carson today accused his Republican opponent, Marvin Scott, of using anti-Muslim bigotry in his campaign.
The charges are similar to charges made more than a month ago, but they are also different because Scott can no longer attribute the anti-Muslim messages to supporters outside his campaign organization.
The new charges deal with a new website from the Scott campaign, drmarvinscottforcongress.com . It went online Monday.
The website lists the principles on which Marvin Scott bases his campaign; number 8 is “Fight Muslim extremism and protect freedom of religion.” Click on it and you will find an image from 9/11 and ten reasons why radical Islam is a threat.
From Dr. Marvin Scott’s website:
“Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” This is how the Bill of Rights begins. Every American has, and should have, the right to worship in the way they personally see fit. America stands for honoring and protecting that God given right. No such thought or law exists in any Muslim country on the face of the earth. If Muslim law were to be imposed in our country, freedom of religion would disappear here as it has in Muslim countries around the globe. Islam advocates the eventual elimination of all Christians and Jews. We are threatened by past and current deadly acts committed in the name of Islam. We are threatened by those who want Shariah or Muslim law to be honored and to eventually replace our law. Women are cruelly and regularly subjugated to second class status by many practicing Muslims. Honor killings of women are widespread in the Muslim world and happen in our country too. Omar M. Ahmad, founder of CAIR (the Counsil on American Islamic Relations) said: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant”. Many Muslims are respectful and model citizens, but many are not. Radical elements of Islam are funding and building mosques across America and they use our laws to protect themselves while advocating the overthrow of our laws and our way of life in their mosques and online. Attacks against America and Americans here and in other parts of the world can not and should not be ignored or explained away. We are forced to be, based on their acts and statements, at war with radical Islam and we could lose if we do not fully understand and fully confront the Muslim menace. I will not be intimidated and I will not be fooled. I will stand against the immediate and real threat of radical Islam to all Americans and to our country.
1. Islam commands offensive and aggressive and unjust jihad.
2. Islam orders apostates to be killed.
3. Islam orders death for Muslim and possible death for non—Muslim critics of Muhammad and the Quran and even sharia itself.
4. Islam orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped and adulterers to be stoned to death.
5. Islam commands that homosexuals must be executed.
6. Islam commands that highway robbers should be crucified or mutilated.
7. Islam commands that a male and female thief must have a hand cut off.
8. Islam allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge—physical eye for physical eye.
9. Islam allows husbands to hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives.
10. Islam commands that drinkers and gamblers should be whipped.
The link expounds on the 10 points with numerous examples, but if you refuse to acknowledge well-known aspects of the religion you chose, or you are a reporter attempting to make yourself look uneducated on the topic and particularly biased, then you might pretend these issues are a figment of a bigoted imagination. That way you can tar your opponent as anti-Muslim, which is easier than tarring him as a racist since the so-called bigot is black.
Indiana happens to be home to one of the most notorious Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamist groups in the U.S., ISNA. Not surprisingly, the man making the anti-Muslim complaint is Andre Carson who will attend the annual conference of the unindicted co-conspirator to a Hamas funding trial ISNA. As we’ve told you before, Andre Carson makes it a habit to associate closely with Muslims who are suspected of terrorist-links and known supporters of jihad against Americans.
