The Dallas Morning News #JeSuisCharlie? Not so much @RayLeszcynski

You would think that a great American newspaper (and I use the word “great” quite liberally here) would embrace the AFDI Muhammad Art Exhibit and International Contest,  in light of the jihad slaughter of the entire editorial staff of a French weekly magazine, the shooting at a Free Speech debate at a Danish cafe, and the systematic beheading of American journalists and aid workers. But you would be wrong.

Look at the headline of today’s Dallas Morning News, “Anti-Islam group blah blah blah…” And writer Ray Leszcynski quotes heavily from infamous American terror group CAIR.

The money quote:

“We’re doing what Pamela Geller hates most. We’re ignoring her,” said CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper. “She’s using freedom of speech to promote hate speech.”

If only they would ignore me. Hamas-CAIR gets more press from my stories than any other single source.

I use freedom of speech to promote truth that CAIR labels (libels) “hate speech.” CAIR uses freedom of speech to destroy our freedoms,  overthrow the American government and impose Islamic law.

The Dallas Morning News is consumed more with the fact that Garland ISD arena allowed us to book the venue than anything else.  Ray Leszcynski had no problem with last month’s supremacist conference against free speech, “Stand with the Prophet” fresh on the heels of the Hebdo jihad massacre. We protested that event. Writer Ray Leszcynski claims we had 200 protesters — we had well over 2,000, a number NBC News reported as well and the Washington Times and FOX News. The “Stand with the Prophet” event had 200 attendees, not 2,000. This is what passes for journalism today.

“Anti-Islam group books Garland ISD arena as district cites nondiscriminatory facilities policy,” By Ray Leszcynski, Dallas Morning News, February 16, 2015

 

Last month’s “Stand With the Prophet” event, a Muslim conference against terror and hate, drew 2,000 attendees to Garland ISD’s Culwell Center – and 200 protesters.

The Garland school district’s Culwell Center is once again the stage for a free speech debate as district officials defend its facilities use policy as nondiscriminatory.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative will host a “Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest” on May 3. It offers a cash prize for art and cartoons featuring the Islamic prophet. The headline speaker will be Geert Wilders, a right-wing Dutch lawmaker known for a hard-line stance against Islam.

The school district’s arena near the Bush Turnpike was booked by Sound Vision Foundation Jan. 17 for an event titled “Stand With the Prophet.” The event’s stated mission was to combat Islamophobia. It drew about 2,000 attendees and 200 protesters. There were no incidents or arrests.

The “Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest” was intentionally booked for the same site. AFDI co-founder Pamela Geller of New York organized the protest against “Stand With the Prophet.”

“Because it is operated through district funds, which are also state and federal, we have to maintain a nondiscriminatory approach to those who seek to lease that facility,” Garland ISD communications director Chris Moore said. “It’s the same for any organization.”

John Wilborn has not turned down an event because of content in his six years as Culwell Center director.

Sound Vision had previously used the Culwell Center without fanfare. The controversy in January revolved around its headline speaker, Imam Siraj Wahhaj of New York, the leader of the Muslim Alliance in North America.

Leszcynski neglects to mention that Wahhaj was an unindicted co-conspirator in the World Trace Center boming in 1993.

Wilders was investigated in October on suspicion of inciting hatred and discrimination in the Netherlands.

Garland police will again provide added security. But the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a civil rights advocacy organization that sought protection for January attendees, does not plan to protest in May.

“We’re doing what Pamela Geller hates most. We’re ignoring her,” said CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper. “She’s using freedom of speech to promote hate speech.”

May 3 comes before graduation ceremonies at the Culwell Center. Other end-of-year school functions make for a busy month.

“It’s unfortunate that a school district educational facility is gathering attention not for its educational showcases, but rather for the attention given to groups that have leased the facility,” Moore said.
