Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR and the FBI-discredited far left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are waging a slander jihad against Brigitte Gabriel and her highly-respected “ACT! for America” nationwide organization by comparing it to the most vile hate groups such as neo-Nazis and the KuKluxKlan. In CAIR’s relentless efforts to pressure businesses like Hyatt into cancelling commitments made to ACT! for America, they not only are infringing on the free speech rights of all Americans, they are attempting to interfere with a company’s right to accommodate the needs of its repeat customers.
ACT for America has chapters all around the country and the support of highly respected leaders including President Trump and members of his administration, as well as many Senators and Representatives.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has time and time again teamed up with Gabriel and her organization. In 2016 as a member of Congress, Pompeo personally reserved a room on Capitol Hill so that Gabriel and ACT could speak to members of Congress and others. And in 2016, Pompeo accepted ACT’s highest award, the National Security Eagle, because as Gabriel put it, “Rep. Mike Pompeo has been a steadfast ally of ours since the day he was elected to Congress.”
CAIR is notorious for using intimidation tactics against every group or venue that hosts anti-Islamization speakers in America. They tried to get Hyatt to cancel this event last year and failed. So they are trying again this year, by ramping up the slanderous charges against Gabriel.
In a recent press release, CAIR states that ACT For America, founded by “Brigitte Gabriel,” is an anti-Muslim hate group with growing ties to white supremacist, neo-Nazi hate organizations that exhibits the same bigoted themes as seen at the Charlottesville neo-Nazi rally. ACT for America has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC has named “Brigitte Gabriel” as a member of the nation’s “Anti-Muslim Inner Circle.” (They named BNI to that same Inner Circle)
CAIR also has the unmitigated gaul to demand that FOX News withdraw its representatives from the conference. Several Fox News hosts and commentators are scheduled to appear at the September 4-5 conference of ACT For America in Arlington, Va. Host Tomi Lahren, along with commentators Jeanine Pirro and Lisa Daftari, are listed as “Invited and Confirmed Speakers” for the conference.
CNS News Act for America, which boasts a membership of 750,000 people, is the “nation’s largest nonprofit, non-partisan, grassroots national security organization” aimed at helping “protect and preserve American culture and to keep this nation safe.”
According to ACT for America President Brigitte Gabriel, “We are the NRA of national security,” Gabriel, a Lebanese-American Christian, told CNSNews.com. “We want to empower citizens to become active in their community…. We want to make sure America preserves its identity, its traditions, its Constitution, its American values, including especially the protection of freedom of speech — preserve America in the way our Founding Fathers envisioned it.”
“Right now we are seeing a coalition between the Islamic radicals and leftist organizations, both working toward the same goal – that is, silencing anyone who doesn’t agree with them, trying to impose their point of view on the rest of us who love America, and using anything at whatever cost to enforce their point of view and their vision of how America should be,” said Gabriel, a best selling author who founded ACT for America in 2007, which grew out of the American Congress for Truth, founded in 2002.
