Skip to comments.Video: U.S. Congressman Joe Walsh refuses to apologize to CAIR
Posted on 08/16/2012 2:06:32 PM PDT by bayouranger
Tea Party freshman, Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) is also a Tea Party favorite because of his visible disdain for political correctness. Unfortunately for Walsh, when congressional districts were re-drawn last year, his battle for reelection became almost instantly more difficult. Despite this, Walsh is refusing to mince his words.
In this latest example, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an alleged Muslim Brotherhood front in America, wants Walsh to apologize for making comments about the threat of radical Islamists in this country. In the video below, Walsh calls out CAIR and points out that his Democratic opponent Tammy Duckworth is siding with CAIR on this issue.
Duckworth, a wounded Iraq war veteran, has the backing of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, who recently named CAIR Chicagos Executive Director Ahmed Rehab to an advisory committee.
Incidentally, Duckworth served in the Rod Blagojevich administration and was considered by then Governor Blago as a possible candidate to fill Barack Obamas Senate seat after the 2008 election.
Here is Walshs response to CAIRs demand for an apology:
Here's Rahm's ballerina boy toy from Hamas-CAIR sporting his "I'm ready for you, Rahmmie!" pose.
Walsh will apologize. They always do.
a muzzie fruitcake?
There are no peaceful Islamics. just those who are stringing us along until they get strong enough to enslave or kill us.
It’s in their freaking book.If they don’t believe their own freaking book why call themselves Islamic.
Nope. Not this guy. He is demanding a head to head debate. He is brave, and loyal to America. Thankfully.
Courage Congressmen Walsh! Stand firm, for USA.
Walsh needs to expand his scope. The Koran codifies the need to whack the infidel much like the apostates.
Whoever suggests Sharia and entertains its usage in
America needs to be whacked A La Mohmaedan style. Its sole role is to supplant and replace the host’s constitution with it’s constitution.
Moderate islam? Ha! That is just more taqiyya. Obama taqiyya.
America has never known a bigger threat to freedom of speech than this Muslim organized crime group called CAIR. They are threatening program organizers all over the country if CAIR hears that any of the speakers aren’t spouting CAIR propaganda. Rahm Emanuel should be ashamed of himself for having anything to do with such a group.
Its in their freaking book.If they dont believe their own freaking book why call themselves Islamic.
Not quite. The Sufi Islamists are a most reasonable sort, and once the others, Shi'a and Sunni alike who consider the Sufi to be superstitious rubes and heretical apostates are eliminated, there may indeed be a possibility of accord with those remaining Islamists.
There cannot be any compromise or agreement with Shariaists, however. Their doctrine is one of domination and conquest, and its head must be seperated from its body, then to be fed to pigs.
Meither are we Islamophobic, exhibiting an unreasoned fear or aversion of Islamists. Their behaviour through the XX Century and the first decade of the XXIst has been such that concern for criminal or murderous acts from them are quite reasonable, indeed. And anyway, real hatred or loathing for such would more accurately be Islamomisophia from the more correct Greek term. But it is bigoted Shariaists who we more specifically reserve our contempt, not all Islamists to include the Sufi.
Those who claim otherwise are either ignorant, or are propagandists for our sworn enemies.
I must be an ignorant propagandist then, because I don’t trust any of them.
The ones who are too busy pleasing a multitude of virgins to be anything else.
“Tammy Duckworth is siding with CAIR on this issue.”
Ah, the same Tammy Duckworth who is a foreigner and was listed as same as Obama (i.e. from foreign land) until the Obama history was rewritten as an “accident”?
Just like all the other “accidents” for over a decade that referred to Obama as “Kenyan-born”?
That picture looks like someone who takes pleasure in bending over.....
Three muslim families moved into our neighborhood, on my street. Maybe I’m just paranoid, but it makes me a little nervous.
The problem is Islam, including these peculiar divisions you erect. As has been said before, there may be peaceful Muslims but there is no peaceful Islam.
Send treats to the troops...
Great because you did it.
(An entirely free service)
>Rahm Emanuel should be ashamed of himself for having anything to do with such a group.<
How can you expect Rahm to be otherwise after his long association with Hussein?
Just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean they’re not after you.
hat tip to SNL
Sounds as though it’s time to start a new tradition on your street - Friday night pig roasts.
you say: “Walsh will apologize. They always do.”
NOt all of ‘they’
They demanded he appologize - he said hell no
and they have left him alone since becaue they know he knows Islam backwards and forewards -
No problem. That is based on your experience, which I hope has been personal and firsthand, as mine has been.
But I have made real friends among their number, and if there are not many, I'd note that there are many of my own countrymen I cannot trust either. You are correct, however in that treachery and betrayal is noted as a talent to be encouraged by many in that part of the world. And in this part as well.
That's one approach. Others may be more sporting.
