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. By “spreading information considered inflammatory against Muslims” – even if it’s true – you could violate the civil rights act and be subject to prosecution.
ACLU, where are you? This is a direct attack on the first amendment if ever there was one. Looks like CAIR has gone beyond the DOJ and now is sleeping in the first bedroom of the White House.

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 ofTennessee.
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.”
Please note: By “spreading information considered inflammatory against Muslims” – even if it’s true – you could violate the civil rights act and be subject to prosecution. We all know that this new ruling will target those conisdered to be “blasphemers” against Islam. Muslims here and around the world have been after western governments to enforce their idea of blasphemy and to punish those who speak out against Islam.
Even hateful bigots who spout nonsense about Islam should be protected under the First Amendment’s guarantees of freedom of expression. But apparently, when it comes to not hurting the feelings of Muslims, the First Amendment doesn’t appear to matter much.
On June 4th in a small town called Manchester TN, U.S Attorney for Eastern Tennessee, Bill Killian, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will be holding a meeting to tell Tennesseeans their rights. Oops, not our rights, the radical Islamists rights.
Daily Roll Call Killian and the FBI want to let us know it is against the federal law to speak out against political islam. But wait, this isn’t about a religion at all. This is clearly another government entity promoting the pro islamist sensibilities of the Obama administration. This is about free speech pure and simple. The IRS has targeted conservative groups and individuals, now the Dept of Justice and law enforcement want to tell you it’s against the law to state facts. Facts offend political muslims. They may not like the facts, but it isn’t against the law…yet.
The OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) ( worked specifically Hillary Clinton) the United Nations, and this government have been creating a law called the Defamation of Religions Law, to make it illegal to tell the truth about political islam and sharia law. In the middle east and countries ruled by islam, its call Blasphemy. People are killed if they commit blasphemy by the way.
Why is the government suppressing the right to speak out against political islam?
Why is a U.S Attorney and the lead Law Enforcement agency in this country addressing this issue in Tennessee, in a small town to boot?
Why is the Tullahoma News paper embracing this idea, don’t they know their business depends on free speech, havent they been seeing what the IRS is doing to journalists?
How dare this U.S attorney and the agent from FBI tell us how to be ethical. How dare them to try to intimidate citizens of the United States by suggesting writing blogs and media it’s a federal crime to tell the facts about political islam.
This is not about religion and “culture” this is political. First amendment rights once again being suppressed.
Lets not forget about the Islamist organization called AMAC ( American muslim Advisory Council) that’s hosting this event. AMAC was formed purely as a political entity . This is from our friends at www.tn4politicaljustice.wordpress.com :
AMAC is, always has been and always will be a political entity. The AMAC was created as a political response to the anti-terrorism bill. Its new affiliate status with the Islamic Networks Group (a Muslim Brotherhood connected organization discussed in Newsletter #41) establishing the AMAC’s Islamic Speakers Bureau, only further exposes its political objective to influence any and all societal systems. This is precisely the foundation needed to enable the embedding of political shariah.
The government of Tennessee has legitimized this islamist organization and welcomes them with open arms. This letter see below) from the head of the Tennessee Dept of Homeland Security solidifies that partnership. This event needs to be attended by every freedom of speech loving american. They are using religion and culture as a guise to tell us we can’t speak out. This must not happen.
