It doesn't get any better than this. The NAACP held a press conference about it's report that the Tea Party is not dealing with perceived racist elements. Adam Sharp of the Sharp Elbows blog was on hand to ask questions. He wanted to know why the NAACP hadn't done the same thing with racism in its ranks.

He then got in a shot about the falsified cover of the NAACP report before being asked to turn off his camera. What ensues serves as the perfect example for what happens when someone realizes they're losing the debate - they try to shut it down. Even the NAACP attorney didn't want to talk.

Great stuff via Sharp Elbows:


As the Pentagon was still sporting a gaping wound months after the 9/11 attacks, the man who is now known to have mentored Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan and the Christmas Day underwear bomber dined at the Pentagon. Anwar al Awlaki apparently said he was a moderate at the time and was believed. While he is an American citizen, he is now number one on the CIA kill list. He also had ties to the 9/11 hijackers themselves.

Catherine Herridge at Fox News broke the story:
Anwar Al-Awlaki may be the first American on the CIA's kill or capture list, but he was also a lunch guest of military brass at the Pentagon within months of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, Fox News has learned.

Documents exclusively obtained by Fox News, including an FBI interview conducted after the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009, state that Awlaki was taken to the Pentagon as part of the military’s outreach to the Muslim community in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.
The ineptitude of our government agencies is growing increasingly disconcerting. It definitely adds fuel to the arguments that the Oklahoma City bombing was a botched sting operation and that stories about Able Danger are well founded. HERE is a link to some of the documents on al Awlaki.


I'd say this is getting ridiculous but that would be redundant. The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is a group that rolls up under the Muslim Brotherhood umbrella; it was an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Islamic terrorism funding trial in U.S. history. In the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial, the defendants were found guilty on over 100 counts of supporting terrorism. You'd think a group like ISNA would be shunned, right? Wrong.

Asst Secretary of State P.J. Crowley visited ISNA headquarters and schmoozed with Muslim Brotherhood members according to the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily report, which posts the relevant excerpt from ISNA's website. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has also courted ISNA according to the report. Via GMBDR:
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State of Public Affairs Philip Crowley met with representatives from all seven of the Indianapolis area masjids and Islamic community centers at ISNA Headquarters on the evening of Thursday October 7th. The Assistant Secretary attended a discussion on the Indiana University Purdue University of Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus earlier that day and met later in the evening with the Muslim community. A retired Air Force Colonel who held senior positions in the White House and Pentagon during the Clinton administration, Philip Crowley was sworn in as Assistant Secretary of State for public affairs of the Obama Administration on May 26, 2009. Crowley’s main responsibility as Assistant Secretary is to ensure that public affairs informs public policy. From 7:30 to 10:30 PM, just under 30 local Muslim community leaders from the greater Indianapolis area met with Assistant Secretary Crowley at ISNA, where he discussed and answered questions on U.S. foreign policy. He focused on current strategies in the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and current U.S. involvement in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Sudan.
If the name PJ Crowley seems familiar, he's the same guy who defended another State Department employee for apologizing to the Chinese for Arizona's stance on illegal immigration.

Your tax dollars at work. National Public Radio is a far left, taxpayer-funded media propaganda enterprise that has actually fired one of its biggest advocates for actually speaking his mind and being honest. Juan Williams is a regular contributor to the Fox News Channel whose leftwing views often lead to uncontrollable eye-rolling on the part of those watching and listening but he's one of the more likable libs if nothing else.

What on earth did he say that NPR so objected to? Muslims on a plane make him nervous. Via the New York Times:
The move came after Mr. Williams, who is also a Fox News political analyst, appeared on the “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday. On the show, the host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him to respond to the notion that the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.” Mr. O’Reilly said, “The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”

Mr. Williams said he concurred with Mr. O’Reilly.

He continued: “I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
This is what happens when taxpayer dollars fund media enterprises - or practically anything else for that matter. That enterprise goes completely off the tracks. Being honest gets you fired at NPR. Let's not forget another NPR / Fox News Contributor, Mara Liasson, who in late 2009 was reigned in by NPR who was 'concerned' about her appearances on the Fox News Channel.

Potential upside? Now that Juan is no longer on the government dole, perhaps he'll see what's wrong with socialism. Stay tuned.

Via The Blaze, here is the video of the comments that got Juan in trouble. Go figure, the one time I agree with Williams and NPR fires him.
