Brennan: Singling out groups 'un-American'
Politico ^ | March 18, 2011 | Ben Smith

Posted on 03/18/2011 5:39:37 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

White House counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan signaled his strong differences with Rep. Peter King's high-profile hearings on Muslim radicalization at an event in New York City today.

Brennan followed Rep. Bennie Thompson, the senior Democrat on King's committee, who sharply criticized the hearings.

The White House official thanked Thompson for pointing out "how un-American it is to single out groups because of their ethnic background, religious affiliation, or political association."

Brennan didn't respond to a question about whether he was referring specifically to King's hearings, which the White House has not criticized.

It’s OK to single out Whitey though.

Welcome to the generation of illiterate and ill-informed grads.

If he gets his way there will be no America.

“Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a “religion”, it is a cult. Larger than that though, it is a political system, it is it’s own government, a economic system (which includes funding new mosque construction), it’s judicial…all wrapped up in the word sharia. This is inclusive of its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent …and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is an invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.

This is not a “religion”, but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Koran’s Sharia rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes. Islam is political, and it’s goal is to supplant and replace. Globally.”

Supplant and replace? That is a direct threat to the American constitution.

Innocent religion? ~~~ NOT!

.... drink more kool aid, folks

You mean like when democrats single groups out such as: "bible clinging" "gun loving" "the rich" (fill in whatever you think is 'rich', that's what they do) "right wing " "you haters" "anti-choicers" "birthers" "tea baggers" "worshippers of the constitution"

Brennan is a total nutcase. Of course it's appropriate to single out a single ethnic group and then bomb and burn their properties and kill innocent, men, women and children ~ especially when they attacked you first!

Otherwise, WWII was wrong!

Just which side is Brennan on? Is he even an American, or perhaps he's a Secret Nazi Agent of Disinformation!

Whatever, we know his kind. Send him BACK.

But the DHS released a report [2009] entitled: “Domestic Extremism Lexicon

That report labeled the following to be extremists, bordering on terrorism:

Those concerned over the economy; loss of jobs; foreclosures; antagonism toward the Obama Administration; Criticism of free trade programs; anti-abortion; oppose same sex marriage; believe in the “end times;” stock pile food; oppose illegal immigration; oppose a New World Order; oppose the UN; oppose global governance; fear of Communist regimes; oppose loss of US manufacturing to overseas nations; oppose loss of US prestige; and use of the internet (or alternative media) to express any of these ideas.

But we can single out certain groups and give them their own set of rights? I’m so confused.

They cover that up. With Obama in power they protect the muslims every way they can. It's like they've all been brainwashed. We Bible lovers are much more dangerous...surely!!

Brennan was behind the illegal passport and background information checks run on:

John McCain
Hillary Clinton

and for cover:

Barack Hussein Opansy Junior

.

So who does Brennan work for now?

I have no idea who he’s working for now. I don’t trust any of them anymore. They have one desire - to be powerful and stay in power.

“The White House official thanked Thompson
(for pointing out “how un-American it is to single out groups because of their ethnic background, religious affiliation, or political association.”
Brennan didn’t respond to a question about whether he was referring specifically to)
King’s hearings, which the White House has not criticized.”

Yeah, the WH is staying out of it./

Yes unless its Ron Paul Supporters, Military Vets, people who are intersted in the Constitution, gun owners, and those pesky Tea Party Activists.

I read the title and thought perhaps we eventually got someone from the administration to support the relentless denigration of the Tea Party. I thought wrong...
