FLORIDA REPUBLICAN ATTACKED BY MUSLIM GROUP
St. Pete Times ^ | 13 April 2009 | Adam Smith

Hasner shrugs off CAIR slam

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling on House Majority Leader Adam Hasner to disassociate himself from a "free speech summit" he's helping host that features, among others, a controversial Dutch politician, Geert Wilders, often criticized for extremism and being anti-Islam. Wilders has likened the Koran to Mein Kampf.

“If Rep. Hasner truly wishes to represent Florida’s diverse religious and ethnic population, he should immediately disassociate himself and the state Legislature from this motley collection of Islamophobes and Muslim-bashers,” CAIR-South Florida Executive Director Altaf Ali said of Wilders and others involved in the event.

Hasner brushed off the CAIR criticism: "These are the same people who have been attacking me all session. This isn't about being anti-Islam, this is all about the right to free speech and they are trying to stifle it."

Free speech is great, as long as you don’t have anything bad to say about us...

They are nothing but trouble. The radical left has set a fine example for these trouble-makers.

Good on ya, Hasner! Now THAT’S the way to call it for what it is.

Also, when the headline caught my attention, I was about to go into a rage before I realized it was a verbal attack from CAIR.

Maybe he will when CAIR disassociates itself from terrorists and theocrats?

Hasner brushed off the CAIR criticism:

i.e.,he could CAIR less.
That's what the general attitude should be,but there's too many cowardly suckups who will quell the whining and pouting with capitualtion.

We need to arrange a meeting.

CAIR meet Bubba, Bubba meet CAIR.

Besides that I pronounce CAIR not as “Care” but more like this “Kah-eer”. I don’t want people actually thinking that they do “care”, because they don’t.

Free speech is really not compatible with the Death Cult.

CAIR and many other Muslim groups are unclear on the concept of free speech, and they want to impose their lack of clarity on the rest of us.

How dare they come to this country and try to tell us what we may or may not say? If they want to live like that, they should return to their ancestral Islamic hell holes, where free speech is unheard of.

“often criticized for extremism and being anti-Islam.”

As a system of law and governance, Islamic theocracy should be challenged. This nation has a founding principle in a freedom of religion. The death cult does not see others as equals and does not permit the world’s 1 billion muslims to convert away from the faith.

Islamists are now using their power within the UN to silence criticism and mockery of Islam. No other faiths have ever been afforded such protection by the United Nations.

The UN also does not push for religious freedoms in the Islamic head State, Saudi Arabia (which prohibits all other religious traditions and texts).

The hell with the Muslims. They have never contributed to American society, nor our culture, nor our freedoms or liberties. If it were not for Obama and the MSM, Americans would realize that these Muslims are a huge danger to our nation.
