The DOJ’s politically correct terrorist press releases

We’ve noted this time and again on FBI press releases and media reporting. via David Rusin at Islamist Watch. The Justice Department’s PC-Heavy Press Releases

Recent U.S. Department of Justice press releases on terrorism-related indictments could have listed CAIR as a coauthor. The defensiveness, lecturing tones, and prostration before Islamist talking points reflect a government ever more obsessed with mollifying Muslims.

Consider a May 14 release announcing the indictment of six people in Florida and Pakistan for allegedly providing financial and other assistance to the Pakistani Taliban. After identifying two Floridians as imams, the text oddly notes that the “defendants are charged based on their provision of material support to terrorism, not on their religious beliefs or teachings.” Who besides Islamists and those who swallow their victimhood narrative would assume otherwise?

FBI Special Agent in Charge John V. Gillies — or, more likely, the DoJ ghostwriter — then chimes in to “remind everyone that the Muslim and Arab-American members of our community should never be judged by the illegal activities of a few.” Finally, U.S. Attorney Wifredo A. Ferrer further instructs Americans not to be haters:

Let me be clear that this is not an indictment against a particular community or religion. Instead, today’s indictment charges six individuals for promoting terror and violence through their financial and other support of the Pakistani Taliban. Radical extremists know no boundaries; they come in all shapes and sizes and are not limited by religion, age, or geography.

A May 31 release follows the same pattern as it reports on two U.S.-based Iraqi nationals indicted for allegedly aiding and even directly participating in attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq.

First, FBI Special Agent in Charge Elizabeth A. Fries retails the overblown “backlash” meme: “Just as we vigorously investigate terrorism cases, the FBI will vigorously pursue anyone who targets Muslims or their places of worship for backlash-related threats or violence in the wake of these arrests.” David J. Hale, U.S. attorney for the Western District of Kentucky, adds, “Let me be clear that this is not an indictment against a particular religious community or religion. Instead, this indictment charges two individuals with federal terrorism offenses.” Yes, we get it already.

This specific manifestation of DoJ political correctness looks to be a new one; for example, press releases on domestic jihad plots that eyed the Washington, D.C., area, Portland, Oregon, and Catonsville, Maryland in late 2010 include no comparable passages. However, it is quite consistent with the DoJ’s tendency to tiptoe around Islam. Recent embarrassments range from its video that trains male police officers to avoid speaking with Muslim women unless their husbands are present, to insider claims about the department having scuttled terror finance investigations that got too close to Islamic pressure groups such as CAIR.

In Eric Holder’s DoJ, the scales of Lady Justice hang unbalanced. Preoccupation with not appearing biased against Muslims is nurturing bias in the opposite direction.

Islam means submission.

  1. Political correctness WILL be the death of this nation… The Islamic terrorists aren’t too worried about us being offended, why then should WE be worried about their feelings?

  3. Its all about APPEASEMENT!! muslims have always been cultural terrorists in all the countries that they first invaded with softer versions of jihad…if you offend us in any way we will RIOT…BURN..RAPE… racist islamophobic infidels.!! WE are VICTIMS and if you don’t respect us you will be very sorry….WE MUST BE APPEASED!!
    its interesting to note that when muslims first went to India they entered as refugees, and were welcomed to stay by the gentle tolerant Hindus…then came the Islamic hordes with their violent jihad, slavery, and death.. it will happen here too in the West!
    At present we are in the soft jihad very aware!

  4. I think it’s our duty that, whenever the opportunity arises, we speak out against any and all forms of this rotten & deadly PC!! It’s tragic what’s happened within what used to be our own strong, steady & dependable federal gov’t departments charged with TRUE justice and protection – i.e., the OLD DOJ and the OLD FBI. Can you imagine these scumbags getting past old J. Edgar Hoover?!? As Michael Savage amusingly pointed out the other evening, “I’d rather have a cross-dressing, closet gay J. Edgar running the show at the FBI than the POS anti-American Holder any day!!” (I added the POS part, of course…)

    Our only hope is for President Palin to sit down with her top advisors – military & civilian and ALL super Patriots who are disgusted with the current corrupt & anti-American regime, of course – and start the process of weeding out ALL pro-muzzie personnel AND rewriting EVERY handbook that instructs its personnel to behave a total dhimmis!! And let her lead the charge at ICE to close the open-door policy for these rotten third-worlders, who’re making a swamp out of our once great republic. And, just to add a third leg to this vital & overdue policy reversal, she will instruct ICE to start checking ALL visas and systematically deport EVERYONE who has a lapsed visa – NO exceptions. Let them re-apply (if they’re qualified) from their own hellhole country of origin!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
