Muslim civil rights group says movement fails to repudiate Islamophobia
WASHINGTON, July 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A prominent national Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization today offered support for an NAACP resolution passed earlier this week asking the Tea Party movement to condemn racism within its ranks.
The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) echoed concerns by delegates at the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People that the Tea Party has failed to repudiate elements within the movement who use racist or bigoted language.

"If the Tea Party wishes to be taken seriously by mainstream Americans, it must repudiate all those who express or promote extremist, racist or bigoted views while claiming to be affiliated with the movement," said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper.
Hooper noted the NAACP's list of racist incidents tied to the Tea Party movement and cited similar examples of Islamophobic incidents, including:
* Extremist anti-Islam blogger Pamela Geller was invited to speak about "The Threat of Islam" at a Tea Party convention last May in Tennessee. Along with her claim that "Hitler and the Nazis were inspired by Islam," Geller has offered rhetorical support to accused Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic and slain Apartheid-era leader Eugene Terre'blanche. She has in the past posted images on her blog that include a fake photograph of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan in a Nazi uniform, another fake image of President Obama urinating on an American flag and drawings purporting to depict Islam's Prophet Muhammad as a pig. In a June 25 blog entry, Geller posted a video claiming that Muslims engage in bestiality. Despite this history of bigotry and extremism, convention organizers refused to drop Geller as a speaker.

“If the Tea Party wishes to be taken seriously by mainstream Americans, it must repudiate all those who express or promote extremist, racist or bigoted views while claiming to be affiliated with the movement,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper.
Replace “Tea Party” with CAIR and NAACP and the statement is more accurate.
I’m certain the various Tea Parties could legitimately issue a statement that they all condemn racism in any movement.....including bowel movements such as CAIR and the NAACP
I can’t think of anything that would help the Tea Oarty more!!
I can’t think of anything that would help the Tea Party more!!
Last I heard, Islam is not a race. How could it be racist?
I call on the NAACP to repudiate stupidity in their ranks.
hahahaha. The Tea Party movement should pass a resolution that CAIR and the NAACP stop racism within their ranks. It’s much more prevalent and much more lethal in those organizations than it is within the Tea Party.
I condemn racism but I do not and will not accept evil! Any cult that will strap a bomb onto a child and send them into a market place and then set it off is evil. I pray for my enemies but I fight evil. If that is racist so be it. I have to concur with a previous statement that said “I am attempting to give a damn!
Now that is funny! I guest my first thought is that I haven’t seen ANY racist or bigoted elements of the Tea Party.
Sorry chumps, but I see all kinds of hate-filled bilge coming from both the NAACP and CAIR mouthpieces.
Police your damned selves and get out of my face!
When it comes to racism the NAACP is the champion race hustler of all time.
If it were not for the racist blacks they would not survive.
Actuall it is funny for an organisation ad racist as the NAACP to attack the Tea party as being racist. But then anyone who doesn’t vote for their Messiah, they consider racist. Makes me proud to be voting for anyone But Obama.
So, the NAACP is willingly allowing the Muslims to use the civil rights movement to advance a “religious” cause, besmirching the name and work of Dr. King forever.
What about the white Muslims, are they allowed in too?
Do black women condone the way Islam treats their women?
The NAACP seems to have gone hook, line, and sinker for the Obama socialist/Marxist mantra, insulting American blacks everywhere.
Geller is an angelic example of a stellar citizenship compared to some of the bigoted, murderous, hate-filled examples of human bile who speak at CAIR and NAACP functions.
From the Global Muslim site:
“he global Muslim Brotherhood network also includes important Saudi institutions, many of which were founded by Muslim Brothers who settled in the Kingdom. These include the Muslim World League (MWL) and the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), both of which were created to propagate Saudi Wahhabi Islam, a conservative version of Islam that teaches that the only true form of the religion is as it was practiced centuries ago. Wahhabism allows for no modernizing influences on the religion, and teaches that women are inferior to men, sharia law-including amputations and stonings-is the will of Allah, Jews are descended from pigs and apes, Muslims have the divine right to rule over the earth, and all non-Muslims are infidels entitled to few rights. These U.S., European, and Saudi organizations, as well as Islamic organizations in other parts of the world, operate as a coherent network- sharing similar ideology, backgrounds, funding, and institutional links. They hold numerous conferences year after year, attended by the same core group of individuals.”
