Here is yet another example of how Leftist “journalists” present news articles designed to manipulate the public into holding the views they want them to hold. The Baltimore Sun’s Jonathan M. Pitts calls Hamas-linked CAIR “the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights group.” He adds that “Guandolo frequently cites the claim that CAIR itself supports terrorism, an assertion the group has repeatedly denied,” as if Guandolo is the one making that claim, when in fact it comes from the Justice Department.
Pitts didn’t see fit to inform his readers that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. A CAIR operative recently called for the overthrow of the U.S. government.
If Pitts were a real journalist, he would have framed the story in exactly the opposite way: Hamas-Linked Group Tries to Force Naval Academy to Cancel Counterterror Expert. But no establishment media “reporters” would ever do that. Why not? Are they all paid off? Are they all so thoroughly indoctrinated?
“Muslim civil rights group asks Naval Academy alumni association to drop speaker,” by Jonathan M. Pitts, Baltimore Sun, February 16, 2018:
The nation’s largest Muslim civil rights group has called for the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association to cancel a scheduled speech by a Texas-based security professional it calls an “anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.”
John Guandolo, a 1989 graduate of the Naval Academy, former FBI agent and frequent commentator on what he has described as “the Global Muslim Movement,” is slated to address a chapter of the alumni group at a luncheon in San Diego on Feb. 21.
The alumni group chapter describes Guandolo on its website as ”a powerful, dynamic and highly credible speaker.”
The Council on American-Islamic Relations disagrees, calling Guandolo “an infamous Islamophobe” who has made unsupported claims against a wide range of Muslim-Americans and others.
It’s not the first time CAIR has opposed an appearance by Guandolo, a former U.S. Marine. In January, Trevecca Nazarene University in Tennessee canceled a scheduled presentation by Guandolo after CAIR voiced its opposition. The Amherst County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia did the same with a scheduled speech by Chris Gaubatz, a Guandolo employee.
Gaubatz is a vice president at Understanding The Threat, the Dallas-based company Guandolo founded to provide “strategic and operational threat-focused” training to law enforcement and others interested in countering what he calls as a network of militant jihadists in the U.S.
Guandolo frequently cites the claim that CAIR itself supports terrorism, an assertion the group has repeatedly denied. He could not immediately be reached for comment….
