Posted on 06/01/2013 1:13:38 AM PDT by Olog-hai
A special meeting has been scheduled for the stated purpose of increasing awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles.
Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, at the Manchester-Coffee County Conference Center, 147 Hospitality Blvd.
Special speakers for the event will be Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and Kenneth Moore, special agent in charge of the FBIs Knoxville Division.
Sponsor of the event is the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennesseea 15-member board formed two years ago when the General Assembly was considering passing legislation that would restrict those who worship Sharia Law, which is followed by Muslims.

Lib prosecutor and his step n fetch it FBI drone
TN has some quore folks in the wilderness hills....I’d watch myself
A couple more horse turds from the 0bama corral.
Instructions on how to make beheadings less painful and more stress-free?
Again, can someone point out to me this widespread persecution of Muslims that is supposedly going on in America? Why else would we need these stupid tolerance forums right?
I don’t have to tolerate them, OR THEIR DESIRE TO CUT OFF MY HEAD OR ENSLAVE ME!!
My RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH will NOT BE INFRINGED!
Freedom of religion is a worthy goal, but NOT when that religion OPENLY ADVOCATES MURDER!
Send them all back to the craphole sandpit they came from. There is no such thing as a “moderate muslim”. Their goal is to force sharia on you, your children, your neighbors, and all your descendants.
They are contributing...they are as them.
is this the same idiot who said he was going to prosecute people who insulted islam?
The Muslim’s get extra special representation. The Saudis pay handsomely, eh?
What a joke...
This is a few miles south off the big mosque in Mufreesboro..
they preach to (and do) kill us (repeatedly)
we respond by promising to be nicer and more accepting of them
seems a fair exchange, doesn’t it?
“TN has some quore folks in the wilderness hills....Id watch myself”
Don’t say that about our great state that did not even go for
Albert Goreon, or Obozo.
I have to admit, however, judging by what I see happening all over America, I can see that even Tennessee could fall to the dark side.
I will not be a part of it.
Santa’s little helpers.
It’s not just the terrorism threat that makes many of them intolerable. The problem is their cult religion founded by a psychopath that allows/requires them to do things that are contrary to our culture.
THEY do not tolerate our religions and culture in their countries but expect us to bend over for theirs.
We are destroying ourselves.
This meeting is what all the articles have been about.
Islam demands its members actively fight for the following:
1. Conversion of the unbeliever (”Submission” to Allah/Islam).
2. Enslave the unbeliever.
3. Kill the unbeliever.
Islam is antithetical to America.
Islam is irreconcilable with Islam.
Because of the above, Muslims are treason on two feet.
All Muslims present in America are therefore treasonous whether active terrorists or not.
I’ve been reading a lot of about this, and the bottom line is that the feds are threatening locals to shut up about the influx of Muslims into their community, much like what the Brits are doing in suppressing their own citizens who complain about the terrorists in their midst.
I know all I need to know about Muslims.
There will never be peace in the world as long as one is left alive.
Taking Tenn off the list of places where I am considering relocating. Texas is barely hanging on with the kalifornication of Dallas. Why on earth Tenn? I guess they are bigger country fans than I thought. Tolerance for a religion that currently has some sort of Rape tennent? These people even rape children before putting them in prison. I can never see me tolerating rape.
Why does the hanging scene when Braveheart was just a boy come to mind?
Good! Muslims need to be more tolerant....They are teaching the Muslims, right???
Yes, they are teaching the Muslims that they now have carte blanche.
Muslims won’t even tolerate each other.
Sadly, the Marxist-Islamist infiltration of our government is so deep, that we are well past elections as a cure.
Yep, like when they sent the police to tell this shopkeeper to stop selling these shirts.
sent my e-mail letter direct to the paper. If the first Amendment is cited —it ought be understood and applied as intended. Justice Joseph Story in 1833 Commentaries published a correct understanding of the amendment. Noah Webster in his dictionary of the English Language ,1828(first dictionary published in America)defined religion. The US Senate Judiciary Committee report by Mr.Badger Jan.19,1853 and corresponding US House Report by Mr. Meacham 27, March 1854 publish a correct Congressional understanding of the Establishment Clause—and affirm Joseph Story.The US supreme Court in 1892,1931,and 1991 affirm this is a Christian Nation (included in the Holy Trinity decision and affirmed in the book published in 1905 by Justice David Brewer The United States a Christian Nation.I do NOT have to submit to Tyrants who insist we must be tolerant of Islam. ISLAM is not compatible with the United States.Islamic Law is NOT compatible with our Constitution and Laws.Allah is NOT the God worshiped by our forefathers—That bloody demonic god is NOT equal to God the Father,their sacred writing is not comparable to our Holy Bible.Islam cannot be divorced from the shedding of innocent blood.Nor from destruction.So the demands of the Enemy cannot be complied with.
What they really are after is to censor whites and help destroy the US and all of Western Civilization.
If anything, there needs to be some righteous persecution of Muslims. After all, it is they that keep killing innocent Americans. And I have yet to see any Muslim expressing outrage about events such as 9/11, or the Boston Marathon bombings. Not one!
To paraphrase Holder, "silence is consent".
SB, great answer.
The problem in Tennessee are the do-gooders bringing in hordes of Somalis who as muzzies go are the worst of the worst. There exists a muzzie axis between Nashville and Murfreesboro the home of the 50,000 sq ft mega mosque. Then there is the third world outhouse called Memphis.
East Tennessee doesn’t seem to have the same muzzie problem. Apparently muzzies aren’t stupid enough to tangle with hillbillies, as that would end badly for them.
Muzzy tolerance ping
A lot of people on this thread are missing a key point... This meeting is sponsored by a muslim group and the speakers are government flunkies. That doesn’t mean that the Tennessee people have gone soft and are accepting of islam. In fact, this is an effort the try and win over the people of Tennessee - most notably the people in Manchester and Coffee county. This article is from a dinosaur media newspaper run by liberals. How else could the story be presented other than to make it sound like the people in Coffee county are seeking to be peace-makers with islam? The story is presented in such a way as to make those that truly understand the evils of islam feel like they are a minority and that they therefore need to question themselves as to whether or not they are correct and need to change their thinking. Typical liberal media tactic...
The reasons for the meeting are also being driven by a fear of what might happen to the mosques that that already exist. It often does’t take more that a few beers and some agitated talk about islam to get a Tennessean to set a match to a mosque, as happened in Columbia, Tennessee a few years ago. Action comes easily enough around here (such as the “Battle of Athens, Tennessee”) for sober Tennesseans. A little liquid courage just serves to speed things up a bit.
Local conservative talk show host Ralph Bristol was organizing (via broadcast) conservatives and Christians to attend this meeting so that the real pointed questions could be asked. He requested that people be civil, but that they don’t back down from what we know to be facts about islam and the way the islamists conduct themselves. The sponsors of this meeting may find that they wish they had never planned this meeting to start with. It might just shine more light on the truths about islam than the muzzies can stand...
Please don’t think for a moment that Tennessee is weakening in its Patriotic resolve... In the past 13 years, Tennesseans have kept Al Gore from becoming president by rejecting him at the polls. They elected a Republican Governor, a Republican State House and a Republican State Senate (yes, some of those R’s are moderates, but it is the first time since the War Between the States that this has happened). They have repeatedly rejected a state income tax. They have passed legislation reaffirming state soveriengty, aka H.B. 1796 or “The 10th Anendment Act.” We are moving further and further away from big government (even though I do wish it were at a quicker pace). I own a gun shop and can tell you first hand from dealing with customers every day: Tennesseans as a group are absolutely strengthening their stance against all things that would go against our Constitution, our state soveriegnty, and pretty much anything else that one might consider un-American. I would say that more of us in Tennessee are more firmly set in our conservative mindsets than ever before.
I have noticed that there is not a day goes by that a muslim kills an inncent non Muslim. They are worried about teaching tolerance to the wrong culture.
The Muzzies need some more idiots to indoctrinate. Look here we’re your friends, we wouldn’t hurt a fly. Atheists accept our religion to show that you really believe there is no god so we can blow up the Christians whom you loath and despise (in fake Muslim falsetto female voice of course)
Bless his heart! I was hoping to hear, in all the rhetoric, an actual attempt to push back on this nonsense! Are you going?
Also, we need to come to the defense of the Freedom of Speech. The idea of a Hate Crime to me is an abomination to the very core of the Constitution I swore an oath to numerous times. When a crime is committed, especially a violent crime, what difference should the motivation of the perpetrator be? It is the violent act itself that is criminal, no? One can think whatever one wants to, just keep your hands to yourself.
That a United States District Attorney, of all people, would advocate prosecution of people exercising their RIGHT of Freedom of Speech is abhorrent! We have to legally tolerate the Westboro Baptist Church protesting, in the most ugly ways, in person, their right of Freedom of Speech and this petty tyrant wants to use the LAW to go after posters on web sites!!??? We cannot allow these bureaucrats and Leftist legalistic lawyers to erode our Constitution with this kind of nonsense!
I am a Tennessean and have zero tolerance for muzzys. See great Tennessean Dr. Bill Warner at www.politicalislam.com.
“Increase tolerance for muslims”?
What about their already being allowed to pray in our schools while Christian kids cannot? Go back and start there before we talk about “tolerance”.
Wish I could go, but I own a small business that requires my being there when the doors are open. I am talking up attendence as much as possible so that we can get as many there as possible. I would suggest people ask questions about islamists and their intolerance of anything that is not muslim, aka "the rest of us."
Wrong! Once again, it's the rest of us, who need be taught that all Muslims are not terrorist. Let's expand that, all Germans aren't Nazis, all Russian aren't Commies. Of course, there is no one, no one, who says all Muslims are terrorist. Should be easy to teach, because people already know that.
I bet this is government-funded.
