Under questioning, Attorney Gen. Holder was surprisingly forthright in admitting that the hate bill is not intended to protect everyone, or even the majority. He said only historically oppressed minorities were to benefit. This means Jews, blacks, homosexuals, women, etc. Holder made it clear that if a white Christian male, including a serviceman or police officer, was the victim of a violent hate crime by any minority he would have to find redress from traditional law. He could not avail himself of the triple penalties and rapid government/justice system response given a protected minority.
Univision interview: "If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, 'We're gonna punish our enemies, and we're gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us' -- if they don't see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election -- then I think it's going to be harder. And that's why I think it's so important that people focus on voting on November 2nd."

"You know, they said we needed to triple the border patrol. Well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol," said the president. "Or they'll want a higher fence. Maybe they'll need a moat. Maybe they'll want alligators in the moat. They'll never be satisfied."

"The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred in our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that's just the nature of race in our society."
> (”They are as American as apple pie”)
Mohammedans are as American as apple pie laced with potassium cyanide.
If in fact they are “as American as apple pie” then let them STAND UP and PUBLICALLY condemn any and all terrorism around the world. They should also condemn the terrorists who initiate and perform these cowardly acts.
Until such time as they do this I am content to consider any who don’t complicit in the actions of the savages.
They are just as concerned about terrorist attacks as anyone else. They do not want to live in fear.
In Pakistan, Afgh and Iraq yeah. I am guessing that for every US soldier killed you see 100+ Muslims killed by suicide bombs.
I’ve just developed a nauseating aversion to apple pie.
The men with the hats and the nightshirts and the women with the burqas wear these clothes as a sign of being part of an Islamic separatist movement.
They are not here to be American. They are here to destroy America.
To me, that garb is the same to Black Americans as the sheets the KKK wears.
Feds seek trust of Muslim community (”They are as American as apple pie”)
Yes citizen your Government really thinks you are this stupid.
America was founded for freedom and liberty.
If you are a muslim you should be a follower of islam which is founded in oppression, fear, and death.
You CAN NOT be a true muslim and a real American
JUst how much kool-aid did this writer drink?
I sure hope the feds did not take their shoes off to go in and collar the perps. I’d make sure I walked in dog doodoo
before stepping foot in one of their child molestation mosques.
Nice little crocodile..........
Friendly little crocodile...........
Peaceful little crocodile...............
Pretty lit...(CHOMP, CRUNCH, SWALLOW)
As American as curry goat.
We have the Stealth airplanes but they have the stealth militant tactics.
re: Feds seek trust of Muslim community
If I wanted to gain their trust I would figure out a way to take the suspects into custody without using their prayer service and mosque a part of the scenario. Personally I have no problem with how it was handled, but it’s certainly not the way to engender trust.
Common sense tells me it would have been much safer to wait for the service to end and have a couple of agents, with lots of out of sight back up, make the pickup. I would be concerned that “flooding” the compound with armed agents would be sufficiently threatening to an unstable attendee to push him over the edge.
As American as lamb kebobs or clitoral dissection.
