Retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor, a decorated combat veteran, author and frequent guest on Fox News, claimed that Muslim migrants were coming to Europe “with the goal of eventually turning Europe into an Islamic state.” He criticized Germany for giving “millions of unwanted Muslim invaders” welfare benefits rather than providing more funding for its armed services.
According to CNN, if Macgregor’s nomination is confirmed by the Senate, he would oversee a new diplomatic period in US-German relations, one that has reached new lows after reports that Trump bullied and berated German Chancellor Angela Merkel on state phone calls.
According to CNN’s KFile and its review of dozens of radio and television interviews, Macgregor also opposed the United States’ 1995 NATO-led military intervention against Serbian forces who by then murdered some 8,000 Bosnian Muslims, because it according to him, it “put, essentially, a Muslim drug mafia in charge of that country.” (He’s absolutely right. Bill Clinton was proven to be on the wrong side of that war)
CAIR In a statement that was sent today to the staff and members of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations by Hamas-linked CAIR Director of Government Affairs Department Robert S. McCaw (photo below):
“CAIR is calling on the members of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations to oppose the nomination of anti-Muslim and anti-illegal immigrant Douglas Macgregor for the position of U.S. Ambassador to Germany.
“Macgregor’s repeated verbal attacks on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and his long history of making Islamophobic and conspiratorial remarks about Muslims fleeing to Europe – disparaging Muslims as ‘invaders’ ‘coming to take over’ and with the goal of ‘turning Europe into an Islamic State’ – makes him totally unfit to serve as U.S. ambassador to a long standing ally like Germany.
Actually, it makes him extraordinarily qualified!
In 2018, Macgregor disparaged Muslim refugees fleeing to Europe as “invaders,” following German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to allow refugees to enter that county. Macgregor claimed Merkel “seems more concerned about providing free services to millions of unwanted Muslim invaders” than funding “armed forces in the defense of its country.”
In 2016, Macgregor said on an internet radio show that Muslim refugees are “not coming to assimilate and become part of Europe” but come “with the goal of eventually turning Europe into an Islamic State” adding “That’s a bad thing for the West. It’s a bad thing for Europeans.”
In 2015, Macgregor similarly said on ABC News that Muslim refugees in Europe “are not coming to assimilate or become Europeans – quite the opposite. They’re coming to take over whatever they can get.”
