Skip to comments.DOJ: Social Media Posts Trashing Muslims May Violate Civil Rights

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 personally reassure 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 regions 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.
The areas top federal prosecutor, Bill Killian, will address a topic that most Americans are likely unfamiliar with, even those well versed on the Constitution; that federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion, Killian says in the local news story. This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.
The DOJ political appointee adds in the article that the upcoming presentation will also focus on Muslim culture with a special emphasis on the fact that the religion is no different from others, even though some in the faith have committed terrorist acts, Christians have done the same. As an example he offers that the worst terrorist attack in the U.S. prior to 9/11 was committed by American Christians in Oklahoma City. He also mentioned the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting last year in which another Christian, an American white supremacist, fatally shot six people and wounded four others.
Some of the finest people Ive met are Muslims, Killian said, adding later: We want to inform everybody about what the law is, but more importantly, we want to provide what the law means to Muslims, Hindus and every other religion in the country. Its why we came here in the first place. In England, they were using Christianity to further their power in government. Thats why the First Amendment is there.
Over the years the Obama administration has embarked on a fervent crusade to befriend Muslims by creating a variety of outreach programs at a number of key federal agencies. For instance the nations Homeland Security covertly met with a group of extremist Arab, Muslim and Sikh organizations to discuss national security matters and the State Department sent a controversial, anti-America Imam (Feisal Abdul Rauf) to the Middle East to foster greater understanding and outreach among Muslim majority communities.
The Obama Administration has also hired a special Homeland Security adviser (Mohamed Elibiary) who openly supports a radical Islamist theologian and renowned jihadist ideologue and a special Islam envoy that condemns U.S. prosecutions of terrorists as politically motivated persecutions and has close ties to radical extremist groups.
The president has even ordered the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to shift its mission from space exploration to Muslim diplomacy and the government started a special service that delivers halal meals, prepared according to Islamic law, to home-bound seniors in Detroit. Who could forget Hillary Clintons special order allowing the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties have long banned them from the U.S.?
First Amendment? What’s that?
Muslims and Arab Americans have helped build and strengthen our nation,
BS, prove it lying sack of crap. Name one thing Muslims have done to further mankind, much less our country.
Mohammed was a Child Rapist.
Muslims who follow a Child Rapist are pretty warped.
That’s my Fist Amendment talking there. Take me to court. I dare you.
I wouldn't think of such a thing.
It’s O.K., however to say anything at all about Christians and Jews.
The Obama Express Card........Don’t speak!
How do you inflame a muslim???
Gasoline and match.
Muslims Beheading someone = really close shave
At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.
From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves along with threats for failure to comply. At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.
After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues.
At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare.
From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels.
After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in Bangladesh Muslim 83%, Egypt Muslim 90%, Gaza Muslim 98.7%, Indonesia Muslim 86.1%, Iran Muslim 98%, Iraq Muslim 97%, Jordan Muslim 92%
100% will usher in the peace of Dar-es-Salaam the Islamic House of Peace. Here theres supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in: Afghanistan Muslim 100%, Saudi Arabia Muslim 100%, Somalia Muslim 100%, Yemen ---Muslim 100%.
Hey Holder: Islam is a death cult.
Come arrest me. I’d like to retire after my lawsuit against you PERSONALLY (and Obama if/when he leaves office) for violation of my civil rights (here First Amendment) under color of law.
Is that not the essence of the freedom of speech? And isn't part of Sharia is about silencing your enemies?
Screw the DoJ and screw the mooselimbs.
If the DoJ doesn’t already know the true identity of Roccus, it can easily find out.
Here I am......make my day!
Did I use 5 or 6......You feel lucky?
They’re the world’s premier terrorist organization. Yet, we can’t speak out against them? First Amend. for them and not us? The DOJ is warped.
Yet the liberals are perfectly free to attack Christianity at every turn? The DHS even names us as potential terrorists?
