OHIO: Anti-Islam speaker WILL appear at Mansfield Senior High School despite CAIRs anti-first amendment attempts to have him banned
THAT WAS THEN: Cleveland, March 28, 2011: The Ohio chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Ohio) today welcomed a decision by a school board in that state to cancel an anti-Islam Tea Party event featuring a speaker, Usama Dakdok, who claims Muslims are demons and that there is no good Muslim.
CAIR-Ohio, the NAACP, ACLU and other civil rights and interfaith groups scheduled a news conference this morning at the Board of Education in Mansfield, Ohio, to address the negative impact anti-Muslim hate speech would have on district students.
We are strong supporters of the First Amendment right to free speech even the kind of hate-filled speech used by Mr. Dakdok but having this event in a public school creates the perception of official endorsement and will inevitably promote a hostile learning environment for students of diverse faiths, including Muslims, said CAIR-Cleveland Executive Director Julia Shearson. If Mr. Dakdok feels compelled to attack the faith of other Americans, there are more appropriate settings that will not violate the school districts stated core belief that all children deserve a safe learning environment.
She thanked the NAACP for challenging the inappropriate location for Dakdoks speech. I believe the district would rightfully never allow someone who claims there are no good Jews or African-Americans to speak in a school auditorium, said Shearson. Shearson also called on national Tea Party leaders to repudiate the hate-filled actions of their local representatives.
Just before that news conference took place, Mansfield City Schools Superintendent Dan Freundwithdrew permission for the Mansfield North Central Ohio Tea Party Association to hold the event tonight at Mansfield Senior High School. The school district said it acted within its rights when it withdrew permission for the first event, and that it did so for student safety.
THIS IS NOW: Cleveland, Nov. 19, 2012: Usama Dakdok, whose presentation about Islam sparked a controversy here last year, will speak at 7 p.m. Dec. 10 at Mansfield Senior High School auditorium.
Thanks to a friendly business owner who let us use one of his vacant buildings, our event went forward.
We took the District to court for violating our First Amendment rights and won.
Tomorrow evening, Mr. Dakdok will speak at Mansfield Sr. High.
Nobody intimidates us.
(This article was published last month. I became aware of it today.)
"Hate-filled" is the NewSpeak buzzword for "at odds with", "having an opposing viewpoint" or "critical of".
Islam is a war plan.
Speaking of HATE: About 10 members of the NAACP and CAIR showed up for our event. The men were dressed in para-military garb...the same type worn by the New Black Panthers. They gave us bad-a** stares.
A few of them went out in the parking lot and talked about killing Jews. (I and others heard them.)
Later on in the evening all the men went to the restroom together. Thinking this suspicious, I called the police. The dispatcher responded that they had undercover officers on the premises.
You’re right. I pray to God Americans wake up before it’s too late for us.
Hate filled equals truth filled, the truth is like sunlight to a vampire, lets sit and watch them burn
The Bible tells us that EVERY knee will bow and EVERY tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord. We’re going to see that happen.
I know it’s wrong but sometimes I get happy thinking about seeing those who mocked Him and never repented, get their comeuppance.
I’ve got to stop living in the flesh.
Yeah!!!! Stand up with them America. No sharia speech control in the US!!!!
Are those statements correct?
I don’t see anything wrong with those statements ... although they don’t depict the spittle that flew when they were spoken.
or simply telling the truth about islam.
I don’t know if all Muslims are demons (Al-Qaeda members are, their murderousness proves it).
But devout Muslims who worship Allah are worshipping Satan, even if they aren’t aware that they do.
They were looking for their sheep.
