The latest enforcement/infringement on American citizens – through an out of control Department of (in)Justice (DOJ) – is outrageously mendacious on multiple levels.
On the one hand, it is no secret that DOJ is run by AG Holder, a radical leftist and Islamist sympathizing Obama official. Not only that, but the amount of lawbreaking under his purview is akin to witnessing mega-heists in broad daylight – record breaking within the annals of U.S. (legal) history.
Let us count the indictments, also wondering: when will AG Holder’s lawbreaking entity come crashing down? - adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/01/will-barack-hussein-obamas-lawless-justice-department-under-the-aegis-of-ag-holder-finally-fall-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.
Adding to the people’s collective heartburn and angst they find themselves – mouth’s agape – watching on in horror, as Obama & gang lurch from one anti-American disaster to another - adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/27/barack-hussein-obama-the-radical-in-chief-his-subversive-underlings-lurching-from-one-anti-american-disaster-to-another-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ ….feeling hopeless and helpless to boot. How much more misery can a people endure?
Atop insult to racial injury, the Radical-in-Chief tasks his racialist AG to do what? - adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/28/alert-radical-in-chief-obama-tasks-illegally-bent-ag-holder-to-criminalize-islamic-speech-via-thuggish-un-dictates-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ . Have they no shame? Nope.
Now, if the above machinations are not enough for this dastardly duo, the out of control DOJ is also in sync with a made up, PC mandated “phobia”, sympathetically coined “Islamophobia”. Give this blogger a barf bag. It is a lie of gargantuan proportions, but nevertheless embraced by DOJ and the Islamist-in-Chief’s entire regime. Surrogates too.
Having previously demonstrated the efficacy of the above fantastical “persecution” at various junctures, a recap is available for first time readers. Just as a foretaste: readers are savvy enough to know when they are being smoked, and when western propagandists not only enable but shield Islamists and their trajectory towards their ultimate target, Sharia Law, this is the result - adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/06/islamophobia-their-propagandists-western-enablers-who-shield-islamic-supremacists-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.
Isn’t it infuriating to learn that movie makers, corporate heads, and – for heavens sake – police too are dancing to Islamic tunes? - adinakutnicki.com/2012/10/05/u-s-movie-makers-corporate-heads-police-too-dancing-to-islamic-edicts-where-is-the-west-headed-addendum-to-western-dhimmis-bow-again-to-islamic-supremacists-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ .
So where is this all headed? If not beaten back, the chopping of the First Amendment (and other Constitutional rights) is on the block - adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/22/first-amendment-rights-on-the-chopping-block-via-criminalizing-criticism-of-islam-addendum-to-shariah-law-its-silencing-of-all-dissent-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ .
Incredibly, the same band of anti-American thugs, described above, must now be thwarted, as they force a mega-mosque upon an outraged community! The only way to deter them is through an equally major push back, directly aimed at Islamists and radical leftists.
‘DOJ Forces Mega-Mosque on Norwalk, CT Community’
Sun, December 23, 2012
Residents of the area of the proposed mosque were not bigoted; they were worried about traffic and safety. (Screenshot: wtnh.com)The Al-Madany Islamic Center of Norwalk in Connecticut wasn’t ready to give up when its proposal for a 27,000 square foot facility was turned down by the zoning commission over matters completely unrelated to religion. The Islamic Center sued, asserting—as you might have guessed—it was religious discrimination. The cry of “Islamophobia” got the Justice Department on its side, and the zoning commission suddenly changed its mind after a closed session.
The current Islamic Center was established in 1999 and serves 100 families. Feeling that more space was needed, the Center purchased the property in 2008 and made the $3.5 million proposal in the spring of 2010. It calls for a facility with an 80 foot minaret to serve as a community center and mosque, including eight classrooms, two libraries, three offices, a kitchen, a gymnasium and other rooms. It has a capacity for 1,000 people.
The proposal was rejected in June. The officials and residents that opposed it never referenced Islam and repeatedly emphasized that religion had nothing to do with it.
Mayor Richard Moccia said, “It was not based on any religious bias.” Commissioner Adam Blank said community centers are not allowed in triple AAA residential zones. Additionally, he said, parking was only allocated for the prayer hall that is 3,000 square feet, leaving the rest without parking.
Isabelle Harqgrove of “the “Keep 127 Fillow Street Residential” was concerned about increased traffic and its potential to “fundamentally alter the character of this quiet, New England neighborhood.” Local resident Brian Dough complained at a public hearing about the already heavy traffic in the morning.
“I don’t want to live near a Wal-Mart or a 27,000 square foot building, and I don’t think anyone in the neighborhood does. There’s no room, and this is huge,” he said.
Israel Herskowitz of the Stonegate Condominium Association that opposes the projectsaid, “The reason why it was rejected is it’s too big a development for too small a property … That would be the same if it was a church, or it was a synagogue.”
The Center rebutted by presenting a traffic study that projected that only 100 people and 50 cars would arrive for Friday prayer services. It also offered to help reduce traffic on special holidays by holding two services and hiring a police officer to direct traffic. The zoning commissionA drawing of the proposed Islamic center (Screenshot: wtnh.com) chairmanwas skeptical of the traffic study because it didn’t include the rear building. The Center claims that it will not use both buildings at the same time.
When the zoning commission ruled against the Center, the Center responded with a lawsuit, accusing it of anti-Muslim bias. Even one supporter of the Center’s proposal, Rabbi Jon Fish of Congregation Beth El, felt it was a dirty tactic.
“We all have problems with parking and space. It’s clear that the people who are concerned for their neighborhood are also good Americans, who also care a great deal about the diversity of our community. No one should be cast as a bigot,” he said.
Nonetheless, the “Islamophobia” accusation got the Justice Department to start an investigation. On November 29, the zoning commission had a private meeting andapproved the proposal “subject to an agreement depending on the terms of a final settlement.”
Herskowitz decried the “backroom politics” that left him and other residents out of the process. “We don’t know what’s in this proposed settlement. It’s frustrating,” he said. His group has filed a Freedom of Information Act request to find out.
All the Center had to do was claim discrimination for the Justice Department to intimidate local officials on its behalf. If a church didn’t get what it wanted from a zoning commission and accused it of “Christophobia,” would the Justice Department have intervened?
Few words are as powerful as “Islamophobia.” It preys upon the emotions of Americans disgusted by genuine acts of anti-Muslim bigotry. It tempts the politicians concerned about their public image. For Islamists uncomfortable with legitimate questions, it moves the conversation to victimization. And, as we now know, it compels the Justice Department to help get your mosque approved.”
Orwell’s universe…Alice-in-Wonderland’s looking glass too…are apt descriptions where patriotic Americans find themselves; outside looking in, as their beloved nation implodes from internal and external forces. Not only from the Islamic enemy “hiding in plain sight” but from the helping hands of those tasked to protect them!
And since democracy is not a suicide pact, it behooves Americans to internalize the left’s mechanism for enforcement of their totalitarian thrust, as they aid and abet their Islamist helpmates – one bugaboo at a time.
“Islamophobia”, their latest weapon of choice.
