Cliff Kincaid on the Constitutional Coup: Obama’s War on Freedom

Muslim Brotherhood groups have been pulling strings at the Department of Justice for years. New Documents reveal how the Department of Justice kowtows to Muslim Brotherhood groups Pamela Geller — American Thinker

Cliff Kincaid has a good piece on Obama's all-out war on  our fundamental rights.

Obama/Holder
Justice Department Threatens First Amendment

Reacting
to reports that the Obama Department of Justice may prosecute those who write
and post articles offensive to Muslims, Pamela Geller of the American Freedom
Defense Initiative has
vowed, “We will fight
you on this every step of the way. We will drag your dhimmi asses all the way
to the Supreme Court. This is Sharia enforcement, and we are not going to stand
for it.”

The
term “dhimmi” refers to submission to or enforcement of Islamic law, also
called Sharia.

Geller,
who also co-founded
Stop
Islamization of Nations (SION) with Robert Spencer of
Jihad Watch, has endorsed a rally for free speech
on June 4 in Manchester, Tennessee, to protest anti-free speech comments by Bill
Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee.

Killian
has generated outrage by vowing to use federal civil rights laws to punish those
making critical comments about Islam.

A
local paper
reports that Killian
and Kenneth Moore, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Knoxville, Tennessee,
Division, are speaking at a public event and “will provide input on how civil
rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims
on social media.”

A
U.S. Attorney usually prosecutes offenses such as foreign terrorism, child
pornography, violent crimes and drug trafficking. But Killian told the local
paper that civil rights laws can have certain “consequences” for the First Amendment
right of free speech. The paper said, “Killian said Internet postings that
violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.”

Killian
is apparently basing this campaign against free speech on a
Facebook post from a local
politician showing a picture of a man pointing a shotgun at the camera with the
phrase, “How to wink at a Muslim.” The local politician is a Democrat who says
he intended it to be humorous.

The
American Muslim Advisory Council, which denounced the “hate-filled post,”
advertises the
June 4 event

as being about “public discourse in a free society.” It is scheduled for 6:30 –
8:30 p.m. at the Manchester-Coffee County Conference Center, 147 Hospitality
Boulevard in Manchester, Tennessee.

The
demonstration for free speech is scheduled for 5:30 pm at the same location.
“Change your plans, get off from work
go,” Geller
says. “Tweet it, Facebook share, get the word out.”

The
Killian address is apparently part of
an “Arab American and Muslim
Outreach Program”

conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the local office of the FBI, and
mandated by President Obama’s and Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of
Justice.

Killian’s
official website also highlights
a keynote
address

he delivered on August 25, 2012, when the Chattanooga (Tennessee) Islamic
Center hosted a grand opening celebration. The center
features “Strong Islamic
studies,” a term that implies Sharia.

But
radical Islam does not appear to be a potential problem for Killian. Instead,
his office officially represents the United States in civil litigation and
declares “we sue individuals or entities who have violated federal civil laws,”
according to Killian’s official
newsletter.

In
the context of his warnings about posting comments critical of Muslims, this
statement takes on ominous implications and must be treated seriously.

A
wealthy former adjunct professor in trial advocacy at the University of
Tennessee School of Law, he is clearly a showboat who wants to please his
bosses in Washington, D.C. He is featured in eight photos in his official 12-page
newsletter and has been
described by a local
paper as “a longtime Democrat.”  

 

In
an article about Killian’s anti-free speech efforts, the conservative legal
group Judicial Watch
comments, “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.”

 

Exercising
her own First Amendment rights, Geller, the founder, editor and publisher of
AtlasShrugs.com, is strongly
urging “every Atlas reader, twitter and Facebook friend who can be in Tennessee
to join us” for the demonstration for free speech.

“Don’t
think that this is just going to go away,” she warns. “They have declared war
on our very freedoms. While we still have freedom of speech, we must use it.”
She urges the public to bring free speech signs to the event.

 

In
a
story on the
controversy, Politico quotes Floyd Abrams, one of the country’s most respected
First Amendment attorneys, as saying about Killian: “He’s just wrong. The
government may, indeed, play a useful and entirely constitutional role in
urging people not to engage in speech that amounts to religious discrimination.
But it may not, under the First Amendment, prevent or punish speech even if it
may be viewed as hostile to a religion. And what it most clearly may not do is
to stifle political or social debate, however rambunctious or offensive some
may think it is.”
