Hamas-linked CAIR claimed that Senator Marco Rubio and Governor Rick Scott of Florida pulled out of a Tea Party event because Pamela Geller was speaking. CAIR was lying, of course. Will Honest Ibe Hooper or his Florida henchmen issue a retraction and apology? I won’t be holding my breath. War is deceit, eh, Ibe?
Here is the Tea Party group’s press release setting the record straight, as published at Atlas Shrugs:
Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Makes hasty press release for attempted political exploitation of Senator Rubio and Governor Scott
October 30, 2011
Response to press release from the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) thanking Governor Scott and Senator Rubio for not speaking at the Florida State Tea Party State Convention in Daytona Beach Fl.
Senator Rubio and Governor Rick Scott never confirmed their appearance at our Florida Tea Party Convention. They were invited but due to scheduling conflicts are unable to attend. It was an error on my part that they were listed as confirmed speakers and our website has been corrected.
We thank CAIR for pointing out the mistake. We wish that the leadership of CAIR had checked with us first to confirm their status before sending out a mass press release stating that the Senator and the Governor were skipping our event.. We would like to thank Governor Scott and Senator Rubio for endorsing our convention and for scheduling a representative and or offering a letter of support in lieu of appearing at our convention. Its unfortunate their schedule will not permit their attendance in person. Senator Rubio has offered to send us a video and or a letter of support for all attendees in lieu of his appearance.
All guest speakers have a right to address the convention as per the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution and Senator Rubio and Governor Scott wish all the speakers well because they support their Constitutional rights.
Ms. Pamela Geller has a right to speak too. It is unfortunate that the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) do not support her 1st Amendment rights even if they disagree with her message. This would fall in line with Sharia law.
The leadership of CAIR is welcome to speak in Daytona Beach at our convention. Perhaps they could discuss Sharia Law and its subjugation of women. They could talk about schools having to cater to their prayer needs, making sure our school text books are vetted by Muslims to make sure they are Sharia compliant. They could discuss child brides and the stoning of women after being buried up to their necks in sand for breaking Sharia Law. They could discuss Jihad which means war against the Kafirs or non believers with an ultimate goal to establish Sharia law world wide.
It looks like Muslims will get their Sharia law in Libya and Egypt thanks to military and political intervention by President Obama in direct violation of Article 2, Section 8 of the US Constitution.
We do welcome CAIR at our Convention to speak before or after Ms. Pam Geller addresses the crowds. Let us know your intent.
CAIR was offered the same opportunities to speak at the US Constitution and Freedom Rally on August 21st 2010 in Fort Walton Beach Florida but they never showed up. Instead CAIR tried to shut down the Constitutional speaking rights of gubernatorial, senatorial and congressional candidates by placing political pressure on them not speak at our rally. CAIR tried to disrupt our freedom of speech which could have also disrupted the Constitutional rights of Brigitte Gabriel the President of Act for America.
We all ignored the demands of CAIR and the event went ahead as planned. The Constitution does not capitulate to Sharia law or those who disagree with our message. The US Constitution is a strong and powerful document that sustains itself no matter how hard people try to usurp it. Ms. Pamela Geller is also welcome to speak at our US Constitution and Freedom Rally II on March 17th 2012. The leadership of CAIR is welcome to speak too. Instead of muzzling our free speech CAIR should embrace it. Any attempts by the leadership of CAIR to shut down our 1st Amendment rights will be ignored and or dealt with as required depending on the level of its severity.
God Bless America.
