Skip to comments.Tancredo bashes Perry on illegal immigrants and Muslims
Posted on 09/29/2011 9:58:44 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion
In a column for the Daily Caller, Tancredo, who ran twice for his party's presidential nomination in an effort to inject the illegal immigration issue into the larger debate, is slamming Perry for his soft policies on illegal immigration in Texas -- and what Tancredo calls his "Muslim blind spot."
"What is not yet as widely known about Perry is that he extends his taxpayer-funded compassion not only to illegal aliens but also to Muslim groups seeking to whitewash the violent history of that religion," Tancredo writes.
"Perry endorsed and facilitated the adoption in Texas public schools of a pro-Muslim curriculum unit developed by Muslim clerics in Pakistan."
Tancredo cites a study by The Center for Immigration Studies, which shows that 81% of the 279,000 jobs created in Texas in the past four years went to non-citizens, a high number of them illegal aliens, to discredit Perry's central presidential argument -- that he's overseen a 'Texas miracle' of job growth while the national economy continues to decline.
And in 2008, as Tancredo points out, Perry helped expand the Muslim Histories and Culture Project, a teacher-training program spearheaded by Texas Ismailis that introduces Islamic history and culture curricula into Texas schools.

Perry will end up splitting the RINO vote.
Aga Khan means roughly "Commanding Chief". In Persia's Qajar court protocol, Khan was commonly part of commanders of armed forces
This looks like a Islamic military victory in Texas.
Without a shot fired !!!!
Can you say ALAMO ?
For those who do not cotton to the ROP, check out the Hermananator’s position on them.
Can you say, hyperbole?
Tancredo is being used and chances are he's even being paid, otherwise there is no reason for him to suddenly speak out about a 10 year old issue.
Perry does not choose curriculum for the state. Those who do are elected locally and regionally within the state. The education establishment is the group pushing Mohammedanism, Hinduism, New Age, etc into the schools. Yes, they don’t want the public to know about it. They also hate Perry because he supports school choice and has pushed for cuts in spending on government schools. ONLY A FOOL SENDS HIS CHILDREN TO GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS ANYWHERE, INCLUDING TEXAS. But Texas is nothing “special” in that respect.
As I pointed out, the curriculum is multi-culti dreck that you find in every state. All government school curriculum everywhere whitewashes Mohammedanism. Others made this point in writing publicly before Spencer wrote about it.
The suggestion that Perry is “soft” on Sharia is ridiculous.
You stop giving credence to naive patronizing politicians. Islam and Illegal Immigration are threats to the National Security of the U.S.A.
SLAVERY, TERRORISM and ISLAM The following is a description (slightly modified) from Dr. Peter Hammonds book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.
As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness.
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs [Europe, Australia, USA and Japan]. Six percent of US prison inmates are Muslim. Like any other minority, they wont integrate, but work to build their own separate community.
From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. South Africas Muslim population is 2%, but they control 35% of the businesses, a large percentage of the banks and have five Cabinet seats while Christians (77% of the population) have none.
They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves (along with threats for failure to comply).
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia; Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world, but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. (Ei: car-burnings in France last October.) Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats.
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning (India, Mindanao, Philippines).
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare [Indonesia].
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya (infidel tax). (Sudan, Kosovo, Lebanon and Egypt).
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide [Western Papua (New Guinea), Iran, Biafra, Turkey and North Nigeria].
100% will usher in the peace of Dar-es-Salaam - House
You don’t read carefully, do you? The STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION’s role is clearly mentioned. Until now, California and Texas have been the main influences on curriculum everywhere. The feds want to call the shots, and going forward they probably will. Nevertheless, the role of the feds up to now has been relatively small. This is why liberals hate the Texas SBOE - it consistently has been less liberal than California’s textbook bureaucracy.
Government schools are child abuse, whether they are in Texas or MA, GA, CA, ND, or anywhere else.
“there is no reason for him to suddenly speak out about a 10 year old issue.”
Well, there is if he cares about US sovereignty and the muslim infiltration of public schools.
There is no reason to expose schoolchildren to muslim propaganda. None.
Perry didn’t ‘hurt my feelings’ with his heartless remark - and believe me, my skin is thick enough. Sorry, but I don’t buy his apology because he hasn’t denounced the law and has kept quiet about it while blaming the Feds for not doing enough to protect the border.
As Gov of Texas, he should have led the charge AGAINST giving illegals preferential treatment and encouraging more to enter our country. The legislature would have struck it down in a heartbeat in fear of voter retaliation if Perry would have had the guts to step-up and lead.
Perry can’t have it both ways - whining about the border while paying illegals to break the law to go to our colleges (in preference over our kids) is the height of hypocrisy.
Reaching out to Islamists and Reconquitas like Mexico's Vicente Fox.
"We are Mexicans that live in our territories and we are Mexicans that live in other territories. In reality, we are 120 million people that live together and are working together to construct a nation." - Vicente Fox
Texas as just another Mexican Territory where Mexicans live and work to build their nation! But at least Perry's not a "nativist."
In April 2004, the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) and Univ of Texas-Austin finalized a grant proposal that created the partnership that became known as the Muslim Histories and Cultures Program (MHC). MHC recruited and directly trained 80 teachers affecting approximately 15,150 students of World History and World Geography in ten key Texas districts in 2005 and 2006. The purpose is two-fold 1) to fulfill Governor Rick Perrys desire to better educate Texas teachers on Muslim topics and 2) to train teachers to use a cultural lens approach to understanding other cultures. Governor Perry was instrumental in getting this program off the ground.
Let’s see here. According to the (many) anti-Perry threads you’ve lately posted:
Perry is pro-amnesty
Perry is a crony capitalist
Perry is pro-choice
Perry is pro-Muslim
Perry wants to harm little girls with the retard shot
Perry is a statist
...it’s a wonder this guy lasted 10 years in Texas as governor.
Did I miss anything, other than the photo of Sarah Palin on your profile? You won’t even say what state you live in, either. Why is that?
Guess the question for you is. Why would you vote for a "naive patronizing politician" like Perry?
I don't like being preached to by anyone. Suffice it to say, we must remain vigilant against all our enemies. Rick Perry is not our enemy, however.
>>>>>Islam and Illegal Immigration are threats to the National Security of the U.S.A.
Yes. Specifically, Islamoterrorists and Mexican/CA/SA narco-terrorists. Not the run of mill Muslim in the ME or the poor Mexican who never got further than 50 miles from where the town they were born in. But you point is well taken.
Like what? He did spend $400 million of Texas taxpayer dollars to try and do the job the federal government won't do. What could he have done? I'll be waiting for you wisdom, as will be America, I'm sure.
Ad hominem is the first sign of a lost argument.
Can you say, hyperbole?
We'll see !
As the CIA officer said at
the end of Charlie Wilson's War
We'll see !
I’m just pointing out the general theme of your numerous negative threads about Perry. If that’s ad hominem to you, then I suggest you toughen up a bit. You don’t debate points, you just post hit pieces and then poke at posters who are trying to debate it.
So ... what state do you live in? Why won’t you answer that simple question?
You guys are hilarious.
I say stone Vicente Fox! LOL
Didn't have the specific information on his currying favor with islamists.
Nor the infamous "heartless" comment regarding illegals in-state tuition.
But now I do,and not to worry, I won't be voting for Perry in the Primaries.
They're treated like Texans because they are Texans: 3 yr residents, TX grads, and working towards citizenship. Texas sees it as an alternative to a life of welfare and crime because the Feds didn't keep them out, won't removed them, won't do anything. As explained on Hannity a day after the debate, "heartless" was meant as a condemnation of the situation.
If this one item trumps everything else for you, don't vote for the guy and move on.
Good for you! Let that unprincipled, two faced scumbag Romney be the nominee. Now that's the ticket!
I don't think it was a case of hurt feelings, but a response to the deliberate insult to people who believe that the illegal behavior of illegal aliens should not be rewarded.
And I expect it reminded more than a few of some oldies but goodies they heard from another Texan, such as:
"Family values don't stop at the Rio Grande."
And sweet Laura calling those who opposed Harriet Miers "sexist".
Lots of folks are fed up hearing insults from pompous, elitist, name-calling, so-called Republicans and their holier than thou posturing.
"Hurt feelings" is not an accurate description of the reaction. Fed up is one of the milder descriptions. \
Didn't we elect that guy twice already? George, something or other.
So, do you think Tom Tancredo is helping Romney?
OK, you don’t like Tancredo, but what about the value and veracity of what he says?
Do you really have to ask?
So I guess he had a program for teachers to learn about Jew's? Since he had Jews and Moslem's I suppose he also did Christians? They’re all Americans, I wonder did he include Sikhs? What about Buddhists?
I'm sure there is no reason for this gossip, this is just picking on Perry. I think we should instead focus on Romney, after all HE IS MORMON! Well anyway I think you get my drift.
In the Primary Romney is not my choice, neither is Paul, Santorum,Johnson,Bachmann,Gingrich,Huntsman, but Herman Cain is, unless Sarah Palin show's up.
As a westerner all my life, living in a state that depends on water for it's very life, I understand that you can't put a fence us along the Texas border. If you put it up on the US side, you cede water rights, and US land, to Mexico. You can't put it up on the Mexican side for the same reason. If you put it up too far inland you are seizing land that people have lived on for generations, cutting off grazing patterns that have existed for a hundred years before Texas even became a state. You can't build a fence down the middle of a river. So, you put boots on the ground, you put planes in the air and you secure the border that way. That is Perry's stand on border control, that is what we wanted here in Arizona too. It's easier to do in Texas because they have so many military bases there and if the feds wanted to do it they could at very little cost to taxpayers.
Yeah, the in-state tuition sounds like a compassionate conservative leftover from the Bush era. I don't support it. But I understand that states do make laws based on the 10th amendment and federalism that some folks don't like. I didn't find the heartless remark insulting either. Politicians say things all the time. Folks should watch more what politicians do, then what they say they might do. I know that could be seen as a opening to start throwing out all manner of rhetorical red herrings. So be it. Also, I don't know of any politician who is the ideal candidate. Not even Reagan. Although he was the best.
Quite calm. I never pass up an opportunity to slam Willard, or Ronpaul either.
Did you know? Herman Cain gave a huge endorsement of Romney for potus in 2008. Hmmm.
That is a flat out lie!
As Governor, Perry could have done a helluva lot more about the border than he has.
What...specifically! What would you have him do?
Texas has spent $400 million on illegal immigration in the past few years and it is a Fed responsibility.
Says most everything we need to know about Tancredo's motivation.
Boston Globe reported about MA in-state tuition, In announcing his veto last June, Romney said, "I hate the idea of in any way making it more difficult for kids, even those who are illegal aliens, to afford college in our state."
HOWEVER... "A separate proposal, proposed by Romney last January, would have waived tuition at state colleges and universities for the top 25 percent of MCAS scorers statewide." Legislators rejected it, claiming that would disproportionately benefit the wealthy.
So Romney wasn't hardline against it. His proposal may have let illegals pay no tuition at all. He may have just been against making it so obvious a policy.
Add in Romney's support for Comprehensive Immigration Reform while governor and there's no question he move right just for his presidential runs. And yet, Tancredo found him believable enough to endorse and work for.
Tancredo has also claimed Perry once called him a racist but no media has ever been able to confirm his assertion. Not Slate, not CNN, not Politico.
Tancredo is for flip-flopping Romney and clearly detests Perry.
Would you have preferred he had endorsed Juan McShame ?
Thank you for defending Tancredo. I became a fan of his when he responded to a question about threats from the Jihadists with his statement that he would bomb Mecca.
How sacred could their “religion” be if it allowed Mecca to be vaporized??
Perry lost many of the Texas conservatives over the TransTexasCorridor and his dancing around the illegal immigration issues. He let Lt.Gov.Dewhurst and others derail the anti-sanctuary-cities bill without trying to save it.
If he’s not true RINO,he’s RINO-lite.
I have come to the conclusion just based on what I have seen since Perry entered the race, that the so-called people in the know, beltway types etc., really are terrified of Perry.
He stands toe to toe with the EPA and tells them not in my state you don’t.
He tells Obama to take his supposed EDU Stimulus funds and shove them where the sun don’t shine.
Perry goes to meet Obama and walks up to him and tries to hand him a letter as GOVERNOR to provide the REQUIRED Federal support in defending the Border. Obama the chicken chit REFUSES to accept the letter.
Yes they are terrified of Perry because they KNOW he will FORCE those lazy Reps and senators to DO THEIR JOB.
The 1st action Perry is going to take is to REPEAL OBAMACARE.
THAT alone wil turn the key of our engine of growth.
That alone is worth my vote.
That information should have killed this thread. Instead, your post gets ignored until post 85.
The funny thing about BarnacleCenturion is that he was a Romney poster back in 2007-08, and now the only information available about him is a photo of Palin. Yet all he posts are negative articles about Rick Perry.
Hmm...connecting the dots here...
I'm curious. Did you mean to say "Sarah Palin's show's up?"
Yes the Perry haters are:
2) Romnuts ( due to their ability to lie just like their dear leader)
3) woefully uninformed.
There are some claiming to be Cain supporters that frankly I find interesting. They rale about Obama inexperience yet support a man that if running against Obama...Obama would be claiming Cain has no experience.
the threads here for the last week or so have been interesting in that it was clearly a campaign to divide and conquer the Conservs and Tea Party People.
Romney hates both. All us “little” people ya know.
When facts are ignored and lies continue to be repeated, it can be nothing else.
I mean Romnuts actually actually edited his OWN book to take out quotes, Talk about a dirty lying pol. He is the poster child.
Hey, I’m wondering why you didn’t post on FR for almost a year, and then in your first post back you started a negative thread about Rick Perry just a few weeks after he announced, and right after he went ahead of Romney, your guy in 2007-08, in the polls?
Is it a freakish coincidence?
JM is at least pro-military, pro-life, pro-gun. In the old days McCain was a foot soldier in the Reagan Revolution. At the same time Romney was rejecting Reagan's agenda and later would reject the GOP and the Contract With America.
During Vietnam McCain was shot down, captured and tortured. At the same time McCain was defending his country and being a POW, Myth Romney was handed a deferment through the influence of the Mormon Church. Willard ran from military service --- as his entire family has done --- moved to France and chose to eat snails and foie gras.
McCain over Romney, you betcha!
See my post #92. I did a bit of research on BarnacleCenturion. He was a Romney supporter in 2007-08, and went almost a year without posting on FR until reappearing by posting a thread that is a Perry hit piece. Coincidently, this was right after Perry went ahead in the polls over guess who ... yep, Mittens Romney.
We have a Romney supporter pretending to be a Palin supporter, but clearly his target has been Rick Perry. It’s funny, yet sad, to watch more regular FReepers fall for this act.
I guess that first amendment thingy doesn’t mean anything to you then right?
“I support Tancredos views on immigration, but Tancredo has no idea what he is talking about when it comes to curriculum adoption in the State of Texas”
I also agree with Tancredo’s views on immigration. I supported him intellectually and financially during his campaign for President in 2008. Too bad he didn’t get elected we would have a fence by now.
What a lot of folks don’t know is that Tancredo is a former Jr High school teacher and served in the US Dept of Education under both Reagan and Bush 41 so I think he does
have an understanding of educational curriculum and is certainly qualified to make an opinion statement about it.
, March 04, 2010 4:04:37 PM · 124 of 137 BarnacleCenturion to ansel12 Come back to earth. You honestly think theres an army of Mormon volunteers keeping candidates out of the race? If Romney is so ruthless as you think he is, he might be the best weapon against Obambi. Think about that.
Another example of him defending Mittens in 2009
He dropped out of the race in 12/07 to work as an adviser for Mittens Romney. Do you consider your money well-spent?
The ISSUE may have occured 10 years ago, but it is still relevant.
