Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley Fired for Criticizing Islam at Joint Forces Staff College
Breitbart ^ | 9-20-12 | Awr Hawkins

Posted on 09/20/2012 9:58:01 PM PDT by STARWISE

In the Spring of this year, US Army Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley was condemned by the Joints Chiefs of Staff (JCS) and relieved of teaching duties at Joint Forces Staff College for teaching a course judged to be offensive to Islam.

The course he taught, Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism, was an elective course that Lt. Col. Dooley's superiors judged as presenting Islam in a negative way. His superiors were persuaded to come to this conclusion after receiving an October 2011 letter in which 57 Muslim organizations claimed to be offended by the course.

The fact that Lt. Col. Dooley is a highly decorated combat veteran with nearly 20 years of service under his belt apparently held little or no sway with the JCS. As a matter of fact, JCS Chairman General Martin Dempsey "personally attacked" Lt. Col. Dooley on C-Span on May 10, 2012, during a Pentagon News Conference.

*snip*

Former CIA agent Claire M. Lopez commented on the state of things: "All US military Combatant Commands, Services, the National Guard Bureau, and Joint Chiefs are under Dempsey's Muslim Brotherhood-dictated order to ensure that henceforth, no US military course will ever again teach truth about Islam that the jihadist enemy finds offensive (or just too informative)."

God bless Lt. Col. Dooley for possessing the courage of his convictions.

Beyond terrifying and despicable. Our military leadership has been totally compromised and cuckholded. Will NO ONE wake up and smell the danger?

I know that it is military but on matters of existential threats to our Republic every military man and woman must speak out. To do otherwise is treason.

Patrick Henry watching us from "the other side" says

. . . in proportion to the magnitude of the subject [there must] be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that [you] can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should [you] keep back [your] opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, [you] should consider [your]self as guilty of treason towards my country[!]

No-—they are Sodomites/muslims who control everything, now, and we apologize to muslims and homosexuals if we think they are evil, dysfunctional and dehumanizing. The Commander in Chief has inverted Good and Evil.

He now demands that we think the dehumanizing acts and people who do them, are great.

This is no longer a Christian nation, nor a free Republic. Vice can never be promoted through Just Law in the USA and forced on people. He is stripping Truth from our military and forcing dysfunction and evil to be venerated.

Dempsey is one of Obama’s enablers who must be held to account for his perfidy. The names of such people must forever be in the history books along with Benedict Arnold. Of course I don’t see him as a military leader of merit.

I just wonder if General Marshall would have felt the same way if pro Nazi groups had done the same thing in 1942. Since when do the Joint Chiefs make decisions based on whether or not some thing hurts the enemies feelings? Oh; since the muzzie Obastard got into the whitehut, should have known that.

Several days ago I read a commentary by one of the members of FR which was worth remembering and it stated in so many words that “Any well founded religion can survive blasphemy, except (i)slam and that is the reason it is forbidden”. In my humble opinion it never was or will be more than just a cult. Cobbled together from some of the borrowed teachings of Judaism by a war mongering pedophile who later on called himself a prophet and there hasn’t been any peace since. Down the road and in time, I am quite sure none of us will see it, (i)slam just like the many variations of socialism will end up on the trash heap of history as neither one contributes to the betterment of the human race.

I had the ability to have a pro Moslem employee to lose their job where I work, actually several in the last couple of years. And it will happen again more than likely.

Islam is NOT inevitable, it is an invasive culture and those that do not resist or fight it are anti-American.

Period.

Dempsey has no authority to give such an order. The Combatant Commanders report to the Sec Def and the President. CJCS is basically the liaison between these commanders and the National Command Authority.

"the course content, the guest speakers, and the method of instruction" for the course was all approved by the the Joint Forces Staff College "years ago."

If this is true we are witnessing the corruption of our military at the very top. No nation can survive if its military, like his judiciary, is not isolated and immunized from politics.

We have seen the politicization of the CIA in the leaks they generated in the run-up to the Iraq war. We have seen the politicization of our judiciary by Obama's appointments to the supreme court and the decline into burlesque of the Ninth Circuit.

Now we see the corruption of our professional officer corps which was infected under the Clinton administration and only accelerated now by Obama. This rarely makes for a bumper sticker election issue but it is absolutely fundamental to the survival of the great nation.

THey are up in the neck of islam chaplain crap in the military, and, along with gays... yep... it’s not going to be very livable to be in the US military in the next few months.

BAsically, while talking about rape awareness in the military from one side of of the mouth, they promote homosexual harassment and muslim honor rape from the other two sides.

All these Muslim groups are run by Islamists.

The president is a Muslim exhibiting taqiya.

Ft. Hood is workplace violence.

NASA is for Muslim outreach.

The FBI must sensitize its agents vis-a-vis interrogating Muslims.

Guantanamo is a resort catering to every Muslim sensitivity.

The blind sheik Omar Abdel Rahman's release is being actively discussed--that was the cause of the Cairo demonstration, not a video.

A Taliban lawyer is now number three at DOJ.

POTUS observes all Muslim holidays and no Christian holidays.

America is no longer a Christian nation, he claimed in his first speech as president.

My Muslim faith, he said.

And his secstate is run by an agent of influence whose mother is tight with Egypt's fundamental Islamist leader.

The First Amendment must give way to Sharia.

This figure of evil will enforce dhimmitude--has already forced the military leaders to bow to Islam.

Offend?

This baby-killing, dog-eating, Christian-hating poseur offends.

In 2006 he campaigned in Kenya for the Muslim candidate Raila Odinga whose rioting followers burned Christians hin their church.

Romney must emulate Hercules and divert a river through the Augean Stables.

Well, hold on: forget for a moment that this is about "Islam." the Army or ant military branch has, and always has had, authority to set curricula. If this course had guidelines in place---AS ALL MY COURSES DO AT A PRIVATE CATHOLIC COLLEGE---then we should b asking how he particularly violated the guidelines, not whether colleges can establish guidelines.

As for the "politicization" of the militarism, do you mean like when (for decades) the Army and Marines resisted greater use of automatic weapons because of the purported "American sharpshooter tradition" or when the Navy steadfastly refused to incorporate submarines because they weren't civilized, or when Patton was forced to go back to cavalry because of his advocacy of encirclement ran counter to what was taught in the war college? Our history is full of "politicized" policies going back to Lincoln's war order requiring McClellan to get off his ass. These may not be correct or prudent but this is not nothing new. In WW I a filmmaker was arrested for making a movie bout the Revolution because it had a scene depicting Brit soldiers doing bad things---because policy was you couldn't say bad things about an ally.
