Posted on 07/27/2012 5:35:53 PM PDT by Nachum
President Barack Obamas top civil rights official repeatedly declined to support religious free speech during a July 27 congressional hearing, despite repeated questioning from Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks, who chairs the Houses constitution subcommittee.
Tom Perez, the progressive who runs the Justice Departments civil rights office, refused to answer the questions posed by Franks.
Will you tell us that this administrations Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion? Frank asked four times.
Perez refused to answer, saying it is a hard question, in the sense that when you make threats against someone. Perez then suggested he would respond to draft legislation from the committee, but again refused to answer Franks question about free speech rights.
Franks questions were prompted by an October 2011 Daily Caller report, which described a D.C. meeting between Perez and hardcore Islamists, including Mohamed Magid, the Sudan-born, Saudi-trained head of the Islamic Society of North America.
At the end of the public meeting, Perez called more meetings with the Islamists, even though he had watched while Magid called for legal punishment of people who criticize Islamic texts that call for violence against non-Muslims and for the subordination of women to men.

Perez, once the head of the far-left, pro-illegal immigration group Casa Maryland, is one of the worst DOJ and Obama officials in the country.
He makes the KKK look like amateur haters. Just ask the people of Arizona, and Brian Terry’s parents.
The man has no business in government.
Agreed. But, good news - his days are numbered.
Another of Obama’s whores. The boy has collected himself a real going brothel of empty souls.
Wonder what the left is going to do once they embolden the muzzies enough to make public calls for the execution of homosexuals.
attacking Christianity will never be a crime, Hollyweird would be out of business
If attacking Christianity will never be a crime then that should mean that attacking Islam will never be a crime either. On the other hand if Islamic blasphemy laws can pass muster in the US, then the same would go for Christian blasphemy laws.
Courtney Love and rock bands.
Perez is just another on mac daddies plantation of mindless morons.
“Wonder what the left is going to do once they embolden the muzzies enough to make public calls for the execution of homosexuals.”
Call to ban swords, and all knives with blades longer than 4” ?/sarcasm
another connection between Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood's shariah effort is Ingrid Mattson, the Islamic Law prof from Hartford Seminary who was invited to the DNC convention in Denver in 2008.

ISNA’s Ingrid Mattson was also involved in Obama’s inaugeration, chosen to give a prayer at the National Cathedral.
ISNA’s and Obama pal Ingrid Mattson is the government’s choice of a successor for Alamoudi’s AMFVAC, the organization which selected Imams to serve as chaplains in bothe the US prison system and the military. Alamoudi was arrested and is serving time so the admin needed a new radical to fill the role, I guess.
ISNA is the organization which engineered Wahabbi takeovers of nonradical congregations or mosques where for years the congregants had gotten along with the larger Christian and secular community. They infiltrated these locally funded small time mosques with promises of money; but the money always came with a huge string attached. In exchange for funding the mosque and giving the congregants a nicer facility, ISNA would hold the mortgages and also install one or more of their “community organizers” on the board of the target mosque. In time they had total control of the boards and brought in more radicals, particularly Palestinians, driving out othe muslims or intimidating them to silence. ONce in control of the boards they were able to bring in radical islamic speakers and further corrupt the mosque, using it for a base of operations to recruit jihadists and support of such lovely orgs as Hamas.
Isna’s sister org is NAIT.
