This didn’t happen in Berkeley, California or St. Louis, Missouri but in a small Iowa town’s community center.
I’m just going to give you the opening paragraphs of the story, but everyone of you concerned about the future of our country should read the jaw-dropping account of a public meeting where Democrat protesters and Council on American Islamic Relations representatives teamed up to disrupt a presentation organized by a former Muslim, a convert to Christianity.
Dr. Glenn Hurst, a Democrat who is running for local elected office, was the leader (along with CAIR) of the infiltrators who disrupted the meeting requiring police presence so that speakers could continue. “He posted on Facebook suggestions that Guandolo, Christian and Gaubatz did not qualify for free speech rights under the First Amendment.”
Miriam Amer, Executive Director of CAIR-Iowa, was reportedly in attendance.
This is America?
From Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily:
While all eyes were on the University of California, Berkeley, Thursday night to see if radical leftists could control their anger over the mere presence of a conservative speaker on campus, it was a gathering in a tiny Iowa town that attracted the attention of one of the left’s key allies – the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
CAIR, which was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-financing trial held in 2008, crashed a meeting in Oakland, Iowa – population 1,500 in rural Pottawattamie County.
Why such concern for what’s going on in a place so far off the beaten path?
Actually, it’s not unusual, not in post-Trump America.
CAIR has made it a top priority in the wake of President Trump’s surprising election victory to show up, challenge and cause confusion wherever the truth about Islam is being taught, say experts on the organization. CAIR is worried that a nation under the spell of Barack Obama for eight years may start to wake up to some startling facts and discover that Islam has become the government-favored religion, the only religion Americans are not allowed to criticize.
This is all part of CAIR’s nationwide campaign against “Islamophobia” which coincides with the United Nations’ anti-Islamophobia campaign being carried out on a global scale. Cities such as Boston, Minneapolis, San Francisco and Nashville have all taken up the cause of defending Islam against verbal attacks increasing referred to as “hate crimes.”
The speakers who had CAIR worked up into a tizzy were John Guandolo and Chris Gaubatz, partners in Understanding the Threat…..
Click here and read about what happened in Oakland, Iowa, a bigger deal then Berkeley where we have come to expect massive intimidation efforts to silence speech.
When is the last time you heard about Dems/Muslims holding public meetings crashed by people trying to silence their speech? That’s right, you haven’t!
And, one more thing, if you have people like Hurst running for public office where you live, you better get out and oppose them!
EDITORS NOTE: Mara Klecker a World-Herald staff writer reported that Dr. Glenn Hurst defended the actions of Robert William Simet of Omaha, Nebraska. Simet was arrested by the FBI on July 7, 2017 and charged with threatening the life of Iowa U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, a Republican. Hurst stated, “I wasn’t surprised when I heard about what he said, but I know those threats weren’t based in reality. I want people to know that he’s not a bad guy. He’s a sick guy… What happened isn’t a Democrats versus Republicans issue. It’s about a sick individual with a good heart who needs help.” Hurst is on the executive committee for the activist group Indivisible Nebraskans and has been active in opposing efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
