The Muslim Takeover of the ACLU

Yesterday I mentioned that the ACLU had completely discredited itself with its non-response to the Nakoula case, now IBD offers some insight into the state of affairs at the ACLU.

The ACLU now counts at least eight Muslims on its national executive staff alone. In fact, a Muslim runs the ACLU’s Center for Democracy, while another heads its National Security Project.

The irony is not lost on Steve Emerson, director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

“The ACLU was founded on the basis that there shouldn’t be any blasphemy laws,” said Emerson, who’s airing a new documentary, “Jihad in America: The Grand Deception.” “Yet in the last 10 years, they’ve appointed (to their boards) members of the Muslim Brotherhood who believe in blasphemy laws.”

While ignoring the Nakoula case, the most important free speech case of our time, the ACLU\Muslim Brotherhood is hard at work protecting terrorist funding.

In a 200-page report on jihad fundraising, “Blocking Faith, Freezing Charity,” the ACLU argued that “federal law enforcement is engaging in practices that intimidate Muslim donors and create a climate of fear that chills American Muslims’ free and full exercise of their religion.”

That’s the core ACLU mission. Protect the Muslim right to Jihad while completely ignoring free speech. The old ACLU was engaged in promoting a Communist victory but it believed that the best way to do that was through an open society. Now it’s promoting an Islamist victory and it no longer sees the open society as its method of choice, but an Islamist supremacist society that gives special rights to Muslims while denying them to everyone else.

This is who’s controlling the agenda at the ACLU these days. It was bad enough when the group was run by leftists. Now it’s also run by Islamists.

Jaffer, who now heads the ACLU’s Center for Democracy after heading its National Security Project, happens to be pals with Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of the Egyptian founder of the radical Muslim Brotherhood who was denied a visa in 2004 after allegedly raising funds for Hamas terrorists.

Jaffer has lobbied the Justice Department to remove CAIR and other Brotherhood and Hamas front groups from its blacklist of groups complicit in a criminal conspiracy to raise money for terrorists.

He’s also pressured the FBI to purge names of Muslim terrorist suspects from the no-fly list.

What’s more, Jaffer wants to deny the feds one of its most effective weapons in the war on terror — freezing the assets of terrorist front groups. He’s also sued to kill the government’s drone program, perhaps its most effective weapon of all.

    There seems to be a vector in the evolution of identity politics, from the Sixties until today: African American to feminist, feminist to gay rights, gay rights to Muslim and illegal immigrant advocacy.

    In each case, a benighted (and often alleged) minority-within-a-minority imposed their agenda on cowed members of the previously ascendant victim group.

    I'm not assigning values to these movements. Just watching the boardrooms morph.

    What the hell is going on here? Why is this not reported by the "mainstream" media? Those of us who believe in free speech should be appalled by this.

    The ACLU has always been an enemy to certain groups of people (mostly Christians). Now the ACLU is raising the stakes. The ACLU defends the rights of criminals (including extremist groups like the neo-Nazis), but they don't defend the rights of law abiding conservatives in almost all cases. Let's see if they try to ban teaching the Holocaust in schools now that they have a connection with radical Muslims. Then the whole U.S. will walk up and say, "Something is wrong here." In other words, hopefully we don't turn in modern-day U.K. like they are right now.

    no one has done anything to stop the creeping sharia and the aclu. it's over people. YOU have been duped by the muslims…and it is allover for you now

  • jim bowie

    the aclu, political correctness, muslims, liberals, socialists, have RUINED the once great USA. It's all over for you now, and you were too weak to stand up against obama when you needed to. TOO LATE. Welcome to the misery of socialism, and living with HATEFUL MUSLIMS. They will now take your guns, your houses, your money, your life. SHOULD HAVE STOPPED OBAMA WHEN YOU HAD THE CHANCE

    WHY are muslims and communists allowed in our government? Why are they even allowed in our country? Does anyone know?

    The US will only wake up after their stomachs are empty and a very bright flash of light. ….Too little and way too late. Bad things only happen in video games and real rivalries only happen on football fields. When Muslim armies are on our own soil you will still think you can just make a deal for a few more minutes of Hollywood. The ONLY thing you got to trade then is your neck. Better wake up dumb ass! WW3 IS right on schedule. Albert Pike really DID talk to Lucifer about creating three world wars in 1871. All is going as planned. The rebirth of Osiris is about to manifest once again. The sun god. level 6 magic square is 111 times 6 equals 666. Better take a few clean shorts with you.

Bad things only happen in video games and real rivalries only happen on football fields when society becomes debased. When Muslim armies are on our own soil you will still think you can just make a deal for a few more hours of Hollywood. The ONLY thing you got to trade then is your neck. Better wake up dumb ass! WW3 IS right on schedule. Albert Pike really DID talk to Lucifer in 1871 about creating three world wars so that the phoenix can rise out of the ashes. All is going as planned. The rebirth of Osiris is about to manifest once again. The sun god Osiris/Horus level 6 magic square is 111 times 6 equals 666. Represents the sun god. …Better take a few clean shorts with you.

    It's not the enemy from without that America needs to fear, but the enemy within.

  • Margaret

    Isn't there a way to counter the sharia anti-blasphemy laws by insisting that it include prohibitions against criticism of all other religions or a way to get them with their own game? They want to use our laws against us so why don't we say that they must include ALL religions, sects, doctrines etc and tolerance is a two-way street. This would highlight the disingenuousness of their agenda.

    The SAME ACLU that relentlessly supported NAMBLA like 25 years ago, they can all burn in h@ll for all I care. They have never been a good group and never will….
