CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) 2013. Suhail Khan and his pal, Grover Norquist, are the “movers and shakers” ( who sit on the CPAC Board) behind the shut-out of Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller at CPAC 2013.
They thought they’d pulled that off in 2012 ( the shut-out) but it took one more year to succeed. They hide-in-the-shadows but this video of Suhail Khan from CPAC 2012, in his OWN words, exposes the man, bringing him OUT from the shadows…
In the video, beginning at 1:28, Suhail responds to the questions from those who wished to discuss the Muslim Bros and Sharia. Suhail responds at 1:35
” That’s not what this panel is about…your groups and other Alinsky-like tactics you want to use aren’t welcome”
And at 2:25, a woman encourages those at this panel to also attend Dr. Spencer’s presentation, Suhail responds:
“Dr Spencer, with all due respect, doesn’t know what he’s talking about and that’s why we have a panel of people who actually know what they are talking about…here…to answer those questions.”
So, in response to the current events taking shape at CPAC 2013, and along with Suhail’s ridiculous 2012 responses, I’m re-posting a video and pictures from CPAC 2009. 2009 seems to be the only year that a Muslim organization actually had a booth in the Exhibition Hall: “Muslims For America”
During the day “Muslims for America” handed out literature in the Exhibit Hall saying that they are “Proud to be Americans” and stating that they are “American Muslims. The New Generation”
Their literature reveals, perhaps, their real intent, particularly in regards to Geert Wilders’ appearance at CPAC and his documentary, “Fitna”.
Their flyer below states:
“At this year’s conference, Muslims For America would like to make the following plea to all Conservatives — End Racism and Xenophobia Amongst Conservatives”
In reading the whole flyer there is also this,
” …stop aligning ourselves with those that use our Big Tent to witch-hunt against harmless groups that could otherwise be our allies”
And these flyers that call “Fitna” a HOAX:
Apparently by 2010, Muslims For America had ‘enough’ of the Republican party. According to Wikipedia , they left the Republican Party due to bigotry against Muslims and the lack of support for Park51 aka The Ground Zero Mosque.
But, CPAC 2009 seemed very supportive. CPAC allowed “Muslims For America” to participate officially but were most unhappy that Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller were hosting Geert Wilders (unofficially). CPAC permitted “Muslims For America” to “educate” CPAC attendees but denied any debate as to the veracity of their message. No welcome-mat from CPAC for the great Geert Wilders, or Geller, Spencer and their guests. No opposing points-of-view allowed.
Shameful behaviour on the part of CPAC in 2009, 2010,2011 and 2012; ESPECIALLY in 2013. CPAC has shown the world what DHIMMITUDE looks like.
Yet, Muslims For America claimed Muslim bigotry drove them away from the ‘Republican Party’ in 2010. Did this include CPAC?
And NOW, in 2013, Dr. Spencer has been proclaimed the clear winner of the 2013 CPAC Bloggers Award!! Now known as the “Grover’s Choice Award”, since Dr. Spencer will NOT be permitted to accept this award, NOT if he intends to say anything critical of
“…there was a slight problem: the Tea Party group, which co-sponsored this People’s Choice Blog Award, didn’t want to allow me to receive it at CPAC next week unless I promised not to criticize Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan as I accepted the award.
I told the organizer that I couldn’t agree to that. He asked me if I had planned to talk about Grover and Suhail. I said no, I hadn’t, but I had to now.
So that’s that. The People’s Choice Blog Award is now the Grover’s Choice Blog Award. I will not be going to CPAC and will not be receiving this award.Norquist and Khan are the controlling forces at CPAC. They have this year finally succeeded in barring AFDI from hosting an event about the Islamic supremacism they enable. And now they have overruled the People’s Choice for the winning blog, and made sure that one more voice exposing their unsavory activities will not be heard. This is the conservative movement in 2013.”
By 6 PM, on February 27, 2009, the ‘Muslims for America’ moved up to the Blue Room… still handing out there anti-Wilders literature and then entered the ballroom.
They sat at a table in the back of the room with a surly demeanor. Many wondered if this could have been handled differently, as their presence seemed to influence Mr. Wilders security to leave during the showing of Fitna. Granted he’d had a full day and was exhausted, but these Muslim malcontents were permitted to sit amongst those who came to support Mr. Wilders and their hostile demeanor was quite obvious.
Prior to Geert Wilder’s speech and the showing of “Fitna”, Dr. Spencer responded to the flyer that was handed out by “Muslims For America” . Flyers that claimed the Koran passages used in Fitna were taken out of context. As usual, Spencer was in great form and absolutely shows that he DOES know what he’s talking about. Is Suhail Khan LISTENING??
Using a book written by Muslims for Muslims to help interpret the Koran, Spencer showed that the passages weren’t out of context at all. He skillfully DEBUNKED this ridiculous flyer (see video below) Spencer begins speaking at approx 5:05
Perhaps Norquist and Khan might have wanted “Muslims For America” on-site with their “We are Patriotic Americans” message year and every year, to oppose Islamophobes like Geller and Spencer, et al. Since they didn’t become disenchanted with the Republicans til 2010, where did they go? Did they just appear at CPAC for the purpose of opposing Geert Wilders?
For those who are interested, a re-post of Geert Wilders’ speech that day in 2009 , that video follows next:
