CAIR is a byzantine organization with multiple names and entities used to filter donor money from abroad, namely, from Muslim states. In normal times this kind of organized front group for a genocidal fanatical group, The Muslim Brotherhood, would have been shut down by the federal government for a number of charges, and their representatives thrown in jail. But these aren’t normal times now are they?
In a big propaganda coup that will allow the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to achieve even more mainstream credibility, Greenwald will keynote the November 16 “Faith in Freedom” banquet of CAIR’s Greater Los Angeles chapter.
It is more than a bit ironic that Greenwald, who considers himself the most passionate defender of American freedoms since Thomas Jefferson, would speak at a CAIR conference.
CAIR has considerably impeded free expression in this country by helping to cast anyone who talks honestly about the distinctly Islamic nature of terrorism as a bigot. It has thus weakened the will of Americans to fight terrorism by helping to obscure its Muslim face.
CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism funding case, flourishes because virtually all mainstream journalists omit damaging information about CAIR from their articles that quote the organization’s fanciful claims about rampant anti-Muslim bias in this country.
And Greenwald, who has headlined at least two other CAIR events, has proven himself to be one of CAIR’s most useful of useful idiots in the media.
Greenwald’s appearance at the dinner next month is certain to attract massive media coverage, which will allow CAIR to further pretend it is devoted to defending civil liberties from an oppressive government.
