In 2009, Barack Obama joked about using the IRS for purposes of retribution:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0Xdgj9ViLM[/youtube]
And now we all see the result- it wasn’t so much of a joke as a promise.
So, do you remember this Obama edict?
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.
Apparently he meant that as well.
DOJ: Social Media Posts Trashing Muslims May Violate Civil Rights
In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights.
The move comes a few years after the administration became the first in history to dispatch a U.S. Attorney General to personally reassure Muslims that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is dedicated to protecting them. In the unprecedented event, Attorney General Eric Holder assured a San Francisco-based organization (Muslim Advocates) that urges members not to cooperate in federal terrorism investigations that the “us versus them” environment created by the U.S. government, law enforcement agents and fellow citizens is unacceptable and inconsistent with what America is all about.
“Muslims and Arab Americans have helped build and strengthen our nation,” Holder said after expressing that he is “grateful” to have Muslims as a partner in promoting tolerance, ensuring public safety and protecting civil rights. He also vowed to strengthen “crucial dialogue” between Muslim and Arab-American communities and law enforcement.
Evidently that was a precursor of sorts for an upcoming Tennessee event (“Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society”) that will feature the region’s top DOJ official, who serves as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and an FBI representative. The goal is to increase awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles, according to a local newspaper report. The June 4 powwow is sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee.
The area’s top federal prosecutor, Bill Killian, will address a topic that most Americans are likely unfamiliar with, even those well versed on the Constitution; that federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”
The DOJ political appointee adds in the article that the upcoming presentation will also focus on Muslim culture with a special emphasis on the fact that the religion is no different from others, even though some in the faith have committed terrorist acts, Christians have done the same. As an example he offers that the worst terrorist attack in the U.S. prior to 9/11 was committed by American Christians in Oklahoma City. He also mentioned the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting last year in which another Christian, an American white supremacist, fatally shot six people and wounded four others.
“Some of the finest people I’ve met are Muslims,” Killian 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. 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.”

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.
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.
“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.
Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.
“That’s what everybody needs to understand,” he said.
Killian is a damned liar. McVeigh was an atheist who declared “Science is my religion.” McVeigh, unlike virtually every Islamic killer, did not commit evil in the name of God or Allah.
The signs of the apocalypse are present. After an Islamist beheaded a British soldier shouting “Allahu Ackbar!” the response of the English authorities was to arrest a man for making anti-Muslim comments on Twitter.
Now an Australian University has banned satire of Islam for fear of a violent backlash!
The Australian National University (ANU) has apparently banned the satirisation of Islam for fear of inciting violence and creating a backlash.
The Australian newspaper reported this week that the ANU cited international violence in the wake of the Danish cartoons and Innocence of Muslims film to justify its decision to force student newspaper Woroni to pulp a satirical infographic which described a passage from the Qu’ran as a “rape fantasy”.
The university also reportedly threatened student authors and editors of the infographic with disciplinary action, including academic exclusion and the withdrawal of the publication’s funding. Critics have argued that the university is effectively introducing a “blasphemy law” seeking to protect Islam from criticism.
There’s a name for a society in which people are afraid to speak for fear of being physically harmed.
Can anyone imagine the consequences of the Tea Party threatening violence on anyone who is critical of them? How about Jews doing the same?
And we cannot close without remembering that Obama re-tasked NASA to be a vehicle not for space exploration but for Muslim outreach instead. NASA was directed to make Muslims “feel good.”
Remember I suggested Obama was the Manchurian Candidate?
I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear to preserve, protect and defend Islam from the Constitution of the United States”
The Obama administration’s Department of Justice official Edward Perez, who is the assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, refuses to say that his department won’t attempt to criminalize blasphemy in the future.
Not so far fetched any more, is it?
Free speech retreats while apologists for Islam laugh all the way to what they hope will be their OWN version of Sharia.
(Because, if it isn’t you own version, it’s oppressive.)
“Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.
“That’s what everybody needs to understand,” he said.”
Mr. Killian is confused.
Coming to an American court near you?
Hurriyet Daily News reported last week:
An Istanbul court has sentenced Turkish-Armenian writer Sevan Nişanyan to 58 weeks in prison for an alleged insult to the Prophet Muhammad in a blog post.
The prosecutor had been seeking one and a half years of jail time for Nişanyan on charges of “insulting the religious beliefs held by a section of the society.” …
And the Obama DOJ goes after those who make crude remarks about Catholics, Mormons, Baptists, in 3…..2…..
Nah, Obama doesn’t sympathize with the Muslims. Not one bit. He just wants all disparaging remarks to be now a criminal act. No bias there.
what a SAD time for AMERICA, her blood is all over HER,
the saddest time of this COUNTRY, we cry for HER, we are SO SAD ALSO,
WE ARE YELLING IN THE DESERT, stop it you who are digging to find HELL,
HELL HAS RISEN he is here with you, IN SCHOOL, where you chase away GOD, the PRAYERS,
you have chosen the MUSLIMS,
WAKE UP PEOPLE before you are damned. you lost the SPIRIT OF AMERICA,
you are no more AMERICAN, you fail to deserve HER.
“The court has long held that some speech is not covered by the 1st. Hate that endangers others or “fighting words” is not protected. What IS protected of course is publishing lies, such as that the Director of the IRS visited the White House over 100 times. Even though it has been shown to be a falsehood, Dr John still can repeat i it
The Daily Caller has quite a history of fabrication, who can forget their story of Sen. Menendez and the underage Dominican hookers?
Dr John had multiple posts on THAT fabrication also and of course it later turned out that the women had been paid to read a script and that the media had been tipped off by a known Republican operative.
When asked in front of committee why he visited the White House 118 times, all your lackey could remember was the White House Easter egg roll. He did NOT deny that he had been to the White House that many times, and if Raw Story was right, surely he would have corrected the Congressman questioning him. He didn’t.
I am in NJ and have personal knowledge of Bob M, He plays both sides. Likes little boys and girls. He is a predator that uses his position in politics to CYA.
A well regulated militia being necessary for a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. I would send the leaders of Islam a picture of Hiroshima and let them know we do not have to build, steal or develope a thermo-nuclear weapon. We have a shit load of them and the power to wipe the earth clean of Islam.
@retire05: Former Internal Revenue Service commissioner Douglas H. Shulman’s wife goes by her other name….progressives!
Mrs. Shulman, aka, Susan L. Anderson is the senior program advisor for the Washington-based nonprofit organization Public Campaign.
And who comprise this nonprofit of hers?
The pro-Obamacare alliance Health Care for America NOW!, which is comprised of the labor unions AFL-CIO, AFSCME, SEIU, and the progressive activist organization Move On, also receives funding from the liberal Ford Foundation, the Common Cause Education Fund, and Barbra Streisand’s The Streisand Foundation.
Mr. Shulman did not deny in congressional testimony that he visited the White House more than 100 times.
So….what was ”good the the goose, was, apparently NOT GOOD for the gander!
So blasphemy against Christianity is protected free speech under the First Amendment but criticising the death cult of islam is acivilrights violation? Separation of church and state doesn’t seem to. E an issue anymore…
Interesting article. What I find ironic is this:
Earlier this month, when news broke of the targeting scandal broke, Public Campaign president and CEO Nick Nyhart belittled the concerns of disenfranchised conservatives.
“There are legitimate questions to be asked about political groups that are hiding behind a 501(c)4 status,” Nyhart said in a statement provide to ABC. “It’s unfortunate a few bad apples at the IRS will make it harder for those questions to be asked without claims of bias.”
Shulman’s wife Susan L. Anderson is the senior program advisor for the Washington-based nonprofit organization Public Campaign,
Public Campaign, an “organization dedicated to sweeping campaign reform that aims to dramatically reduce the role of big special interest money in American politics.”
So Nick Nyhard, whose organization is funded by big money through MoveOn.org, a group that George Soros has poured millions of $$ into, and big money unions which are 501(c)5s, is complaining about “political groups” that are hiding behind 501(c)4 status when his own political group enjoys that very tax exempt status.
What the left is really upset about is the loss of their thirty yard advantage. No president, in the history of our nation, has ever publically chastised the SCOTUS as Obama did during his SOTU speech when he said the SCOTUS got Citizen’s United wrong. You see, Citizen’s United leveled the playing field. Companies, and CEOs are now able to contribute to organizations that fight the left wing cabal of 501(c)3, 4 and 5 groups that have, until now, held an advantage, especially unions which, in spite of CWA vs. Beck, continued to pour money into Democrat causes going so far as to endorse Democrats in their union newsletters. So the Tea Party, which had made tremendous waves in the 2010 elections, had to be stopped. And one way was to intimidate their officers and donors with questions that were surely unconstitutional. It has become clear that the Administration feared the Tea Party influence, and rightfully so, so that the intimidation started in late 2009 and has not ended.
Anyone who thinks this IRS scandal doesn’t go all the way to the top is either a fool or so pitifully indoctrinated that they will believe anything put out by the radical left.
I agree with you!
Also wanting to add that it becomes more apparent by the day that Chief Justice Robert was blackmailed into his decision – finding ‘Obama care’ constitutional with his ‘flim – flam’ decision which stunned everybody.
Remember also that Robert adopted his two children and, strangely the IRS began ‘auditing’ parents who claimed the ‘adoption credit’ which naturally included Roberts.
Roberts decision to basically approve obamacare is now questionable more than ever and, should be investigated by congress; Obama, holder and IRS came down hard on Roberts which compromised Roberts role as Chief Justice.
But PissChrist and poop-Mary is ok right?
In fact the left celebrates them. I guess some religions are more equal than others. Because of this the DOJ is in violation of the separation between church and state since it is promoting Islam over all other ‘religions’.
But that is the error the left makes with the ‘separation of church and state’ mantra. That phrase is nowhere in the Constitution, but comes from a letter Jefferson wrote to a group of Baptist ministers wanting to set up a federal church. The Founding Fathers also included in their writings that the Constitution was written for a Judeo-Christian nation, as it is based on Judeo-Christian moral principles. The fact that the first Congress voted to fund a Congressional Chaplain to lead legislative sessions in an opening prayer puts the lie to the leftists’ deliberately deceitful use of the ‘separation of Church and State’ ideological bludgeon.
What is shocking in the recent revelations of these high ranking DOJ Civil Rights scumbags…I mean leftist attorneys…arguing for pro-islam anti-blasphemy laws in the US is how blithely they jettison the ‘separation of Church and State’ mantra – used to remove the 10 Commandments, Crucifixes and Christmas creches from public property – when trying to impose islamic religious tyranny in a clearly unconstitutional manner.
How stupid and/or insane does one need to be to consider speaking out against islamic violence (Woolwich murder, ‘honor’ killings, etc) to be worse than the actual murderous acts of the muslim perpetrators?
it’s easy to deny and all liars do deny, like THE TOP LEADERS OF THE WHITE HOUSE always deny ,
but to prove is not done by all the liars,
so the very few who prove it are getting away with their lies, because they have used another to cover them.
it make them LIARS AND COWARDS,
As much as I hate using Wikipedia for a reference, this states it fairly succinctly:
Apparently there has been a change in the Constitution they forgot to tell us about.
Cough, cough…or maybe just the changes in the SCOTUS…
And it was on that letter, not the Constitution itself, that Hugo Black found his ruling in Everson. Of course, Black would have found something. He had been a [very] active member of the KKK and hated Catholics with a passion. But, like Robert Byrd, his past has been rehabilitated by the left now claiming that both of them were only members of the KKK because they needed the votes from the KKK to win and they really didn’t subscribe to the philosophy of the KKK. With that much manure, you could fertilize a 1,000 acre field.
Yet, even after the Constitution was ratified by the states, some states still maintained an “official” denomination of faith. The First Amendment does not address what the states, as states, can do, only the actions of the Federal government. Black was wrong.
This is what happens, when you elect UN-AMERICAN ANTI-Constitutionalists to the position of POTUS…..
And Obama comes out and says he just read about this in last week’s press in 3….2…..
AGREED!! What an idiot.. yet, the DRONES who support him lap it all up…. insane!
Right you are. The Bill of Rights was a firewall limiting the power of the federal government, with all nonenumerated powers to be reserved to individuals or to the several states. One of the ironic things is that the anti-federalists, including Patrick Henry, argued against ratification of the Constitution because of the fear that codifying the Bill of Rights could lead unscrupulous future leaders to argue the exact opposite of what the specific amendments said. With the behavior of leftists since at least Woodrow Wilson, it seems Mr. Henry was quite accurate in his concerns.
ISLAM IS INTOLERANT TO ANYTHING BUT ISLAM.
WAKE UP! YOU HAVE AN ISLAMIC TERRORIST IN THE WIPE HOUSE.
And.. our POTUS’s middle name is HUSSEIN… and I “notice a DISTINCT INTOLERANCE” in him, for the LAWS and CONSTITUTIONAL LIMITS he is SWORN to operate under…. as well as for EVER seeming to tell the TRUTH….
Sorry if I missed that day, but does Obama favor Islamic SLAVERY of blacks or oppose it?
Timbuktu’s slaves liberated as Islamists flee
Now, Obama fought a war in Libya for less than that.
In fact, I still don’t know why he wen tin.
So, here are SLAVES.
Apparently Muslims in Africa are enslaving blacks (Muslim or not) in whichever countries they can.
Mauritania and Niger are another two with massive amounts of slaves.
Where does Obama stand on the slavery of blacks issue?
For that matter where do African Americans who support Obama stand on this issue?
Until the 14th Amendment, the Bill of Rights was only applicable to the federal government. Freedom of speech only became applicable to state and local governments in 1925 when it was incorporated by the SCOTUS. The freedom of the press in 1931 and the 2nd Amendment in 2010 with McDonald vs Chicago.
That is why we find so much injustice in our country’s past, because our freedoms were only guaranteed against federal impacts.
WARNING: This is what we will have in America, long as Holder & Obama are in charge.
Lizzie Borden 2 days ago
The Usurper loves these extremist – he said “the prettiest sound on earth is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.” (google it for yourself) Well he can just send his two girls to these schools. . . how about that, huh! They can all go to Hell that tolerate Godless Jihad Muslims. There is no good Muslim, they are evil infidels
and the usurper in OUR White House has DESTROYED another part of AMERICA. may alah blast his ass to hell.
More evidence piling up on the vacuity of this President – this piece supposedly from the mouth of Slick Willy himself:
“I’ve heard more from Bush, asking for my advice, than I’ve heard from Obama,” my sources quoted Clinton as saying. “I have no relationship with the president — none whatsoever. Obama doesn’t know how to be president. He doesn’t know how the world works. He’s incompetent. He’s an amateur!”
Sure rings true to what we’ve witnessed.
yes you are right on,
any one of our group here could have done a lot better than him and his crew,
he appoint those not because they are good at the JOB but because they do special thing for him.
he appoint anyone who does a personal service,
not because they will work for AMERICANS betterment,AND IT COME BACK TO HAUNT HIM,
just like the trust he gave to the LIBYAN LEADER who said no AMERICANS SECURITY,
and put in COWARDS GUARDS,
and on the AFGHANISTAN mob who burn his face poster and the AMERICAN FLAG, he APPOLOGIZE to them, it cost him 70thousand of publicity and took the COPTIC CHRISTIAN AMERICAN apart for his video, exposing the MORSI NEW REGIME, he is in prison, he is an AMERICAN with RIGHTS,
is he still in PRISON?
he did it to save the CHRISTIANS in EGYPT,
on the CHRISTIANS BEING CRUCIFIED AND BEATEN,
NO AMERICAN CAN TRUST OBAMA TO TAKE THEIR SIDE, after he let down THE AMBASSADOR AND THE BRAVES SEALS,
I’m sure it’s the first time in the history when a PRESIDENT LET DOWN THE DIPLOMATS AND 3 SEALS,
ALL THE MIGHTIEST MILITARY MACHINE OF THE WORLD STAYED DOWN while the massacre was happening,AND THE WHOLE WORLD WATCHING, STEVEN left a QUESTION MARK with his FINGERS BLOODY ON THE WALL, the LINES OF THE LOGO of OBAMA ,
it was striking to see as they where dragging him out wounded and bloody.
it’s cinical to see the only one who disobeyed the order to stay down, where killed also. so they save other people
who where there,
when will we know their stories?
they owe it to the SEALS.
I have never really thought he made decisions for this Administration. My sense is that the team which came together in Chicago and included Jarrett, Michelle O., Axelrod, Deadfish Emanuel, and Holder, still has Jarrett and her backers firmly in control. This President has shown no moral centre, nor any level of ‘principles’ which might give one any feeling that he actually cares deeply about much other than the only-in-the-mirror personality which has been created for him.
I am also convinced that he will be widely recognized for what he is. Enough of the media will eventually crack, and find a new statist leader to worship. The bigger the effigy the MSM constructs, the hotter it burns it – jealousy and unappreciated cycophanting has a tendency to that.
I also think that as Congressional Republicans ignite fires around this Administration’s failures, they should make sure they scatter some of the flames to scorch senior liberal socialist/statist Dems in view of 2014 who have so ardently supported these failures and criminal acts.
BHO is a psychopath, very sick minded, and was wasted on cocaine among other things the night of Benghazi attack. . . Valerie Jarrett supplies him his drugs, and BTW knows all of America’s secrets. What a F UP Criminal Government, all around. What a tangled web they weaved by first practicing to deceive . . .it’s catching up to them BIG TIME. . .LOL Obama’s chickens have come home to roost, good enough!
and I would not be surprise if HE APPOINTED THE MUSLIMS in positions like THE IRS,
remember they where asking about RELIGION, CHRISTIANITY, WHO they follow,ecetera,
that made me think of it.and he mentioned on a comment that the MUSLIMS OCCUPY MANY POSITIONS,
and I think of OBAMA using favoritism to them for his appointments,
now think of all the jobs they want to hire for OBAMACARE is it 12 thousands,
where are the jobs for the AMERICANS who have been looking for so long,
would they like to know the new installed MUSLIMS have had the priority over them?
It is incredible that we can “tolerate” a crucifix in a jar of urine, but cannot say that muhamad can kiss my pink pucker? Have we lost our stones here? The Constitution guarantees, in the 1st Amendment, that I can say what I wish, worship as I wish (or not), and the government cannot legally or morally do squat against me and hold faith with the terms of the Constitution.
There are good muslims and bad ones- and we should endeavor to kill ALL the bad ones.
yes, and we thought the MAJOR ASSAN WAS A GOOD MUSLIM HEY?
you cannot see through their brain,
you can only see who they represent if you should kill the bad ones,
because they all represent the same PROPHET, and if they get the chance they will make the first step,
@MOS 8541: You are quite correct – and not only are they not tolerant of others – they are not even tolerant of other islamic sects! Just look at the hatred the Sunnis have for the Shiites and vice versa -and the hatred is even deeper for other islamic sects.
THEIR HATE are now surely in their DNA genes
after CENTURYS of the INDOCTRINATION,
see the OBAMA’S SAME STYLE HE APPLY IN THE SCHOOLS for the un-informed youth, and CAMPAIGN of division and hate for the other party, hate for CONGRESS remember the polls number the CONGRESS had because of his hate speechs,
after he was given the POWER he started at once, he is well verse on the rules of the MUSLIMS and zero on governing an AMERICA FREE PEOPLE.
and don’t forget his explosive character well known by everybody, and feared by his employees,
Because of incest the Muslims have a corrupted gene pool, unable to function as humans in this world. They are of their father Satan. The true believers can spiritually descern this evil taking place. Stay safe, rebuke Satan and don’t fear! We have that authority in Christ. God will provide: God in Christ is willing and able.
That’s the Obamanation of Desolation’s style of HATE to a tee. Head for America’s children first, destroy the parents, then he’s in control. BUT. . .” it’s better that a millstone be tied around his neck and he be thrown into the sea, than to harm one of God’s little ones”. . . also it is written in God’s word. . .
LIVE by the sword, DIE by the sword. BTW God is keeping score. Judgement Day will declare it all. In the meantime, BHO and his Regime will reap what they sow. I pray for a 100% whirlwind.
