This morning on radio, Glenn told listeners about a D.O.J. even taking place in Tennessee this evening called, "Public Discourse in a Diverse Society."
"This is happening in Manchester, Tennessee. The main speaker is the U. S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee and the FBI Special Agent that runs the Knoxville office," Glenn explained.
What exactly is the topic of "Public Discourse in a Diverse Society"?
"It's an Islamic conference," Glenn told his radio audience. "And the D.O.J. is going to be teaching this Islamic conference on how you can use the system to be able to shut down speech."
According to a recent post on the Judicial Watch blog,
"In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights.
The move comes a few years after the administration became the first in history to dispatch a U.S. Attorney General to personallyreassure Muslims that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is dedicated to protecting them. In the unprecedented event, Attorney General Eric Holder assured a San Francisco-based organization (Muslim Advocates) that urges members not to cooperate in federal terrorism investigations that the “us versus them” environment created by the U.S. government, law enforcement agents and fellow citizens is unacceptable and inconsistent with what America is all about.
“Muslims and Arab Americans have helped build and strengthen our nation,” Holder said after expressing that he is “grateful” to have Muslims as a partner in promoting tolerance, ensuring public safety and protecting civil rights. He also vowed to strengthen “crucial dialogue” between Muslim and Arab-American communities and law enforcement.
Evidently that was a precursor of sorts for an upcoming Tennessee event (“Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society”) that will feature the region’s top DOJ official, who serves as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and an FBI representative. The goal is to increase awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles, according to a local newspaper report. The June 4 powwow is sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee."
According to top federal prosecutor Bill Killian, “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion. This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”
The article by Killian claims that the event will focus on Muslim culture with a special emphasis to assert that the Muslim religion is no different from any other. Despite those in the faith committing terrorists attacks, other religions, such as Christians, have done the same. Killian provides alleged examples of such attacks the Oklahoma City bombing.
"Except that he wasn't a Christian," Glenn noted referring to Timothy McVeigh.
While Killian will provide a small handful of false comparisons of Islamic terror to domestic terror, the two are far from one in the same. Despite the obvious differences, members of the federal government continue to try and place them on equal platforms and silence those willing to speak the truth.
"So here's the thing: This government has let us know well in advance who they are and where they're headed," Glenn started. "When the President has come out and said it several times — you know, 'there are limits to free speech'. What are those limits to free speech?"
Maybe we're about to find out.
