“It’s pretty late in the day.” ~ Trent Frank
Referring to the threat of losing our First Amendment rights. We warned you of this [Did Muslim group ask DOJ to start enforcing sharia blasphemy law?] back in September of 2010 via The Freedomist.
It’s rapidly becoming a reality and Americans need to stand up, be heard, and fight back. via The PJ Tatler » DOJ official refuses to promise that DOJ will NEVER advance an anti-blasphemy law.
A stunning exchange took place today when Assistant AG Tom Perez of the DOJ Civil Rights Division refused to commit to the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution that it would never advance a law criminalizing the right to criticize any religion.
The non-commital answer by Perez was in response to a question asked by Rep. Trent Frank (R-AZ): “Will you tell us here today that this Administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?”
Here’s the exchange:
As Neil Munro at the Daily Caller reported back in October, Perez met with leaders from Islamic organizations who were demanding that DOJ categorize criticism of Islam as discrimination under federal statutes.
According to that Daily Caller report:
During his speech, Perez applauded the Islamist lobbyists for persuading government officials to end extra security checks on airline passengers from Nigeria and 12 Islamic countries. The checks were adopted in 2010 after a Nigerian Muslim tried to blow up a passenger aircraft on Christmas Day.
“What did we hear in the aftermath of that? We heard a lot of feedback from people in this room and from leaders across the country that we could be doing a better job [by ending the checks]… and a few month later, and thanks to you, we did just that,” Perez told the Islamist advocates.
But any member of Congress demanding answers about the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood is CRAZY!!!
Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch notes:
The First Amendment does not automatically enforce itself. And if those charged with guarding and protecting it are determined to do away with it, they can hedge it around with nuances and exceptions that will render it as toothless and essentially void as the Second Amendment already is in some areas of the U.S.
Pamela Gellar at Atlas Shrugs notes:
My confidential source tells me that Thomas Perez, the Department of Justice official in this video, “has been present at Muslim conventions both as a panelist and as a speaker. During a question and answer session a Muslim audience member was hostile, and Perez literally cringed and promised that the DOJ would do better. He also asked that more Muslims join the DOJ – that he would look forward to working with them.”
