American readers who aren’t aware of HR569 probably should be, to learn just how successful the Muslim Brotherhood has been in its penetration of the U.S. government, and how close we are to seeing the full implementation of U.N. Resolution 16/18 in this country.
text of HR 569:
Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States.
Whereas the victims of anti-Muslim hate crimes and rhetoric have faced physical, verbal, and emotional abuse because they were Muslim or believed to be Muslim;
Whereas the constitutional right to freedom of religious practice is a cherished United States value and violence or hate speech towards any United States community based on faith is in contravention of the Nation’s founding principles;
Whereas there are millions of Muslims in the United States, a community made up of many diverse beliefs and cultures, and both immigrants and native-born citizens;
Whereas this Muslim community is recognized as having made innumerable contributions to the cultural and economic fabric and well-being of United States society;
Whereas hateful and intolerant acts against Muslims are contrary to the United States values of acceptance, welcoming, and fellowship with those of all faiths, beliefs, and cultures;
Whereas these acts affect not only the individual victims but also their families, communities, and the entire group whose faith or beliefs were the motivation for the act;
Whereas Muslim women who wear hijabs, headscarves, or other religious articles of clothing have been disproportionately targeted because of their religious clothing, articles, or observances; and
Whereas the rise of hateful and anti-Muslim speech, violence, and cultural ignorance plays into the false narrative spread by terrorist groups of Western hatred of Islam, and can encourage certain individuals to react in extreme and violent ways: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives—
(1) expresses its condolences for the victims of anti-Muslim hate crimes; (2) steadfastly confirms its dedication to the rights and dignity of all its citizens of all faiths, beliefs, and cultures; (3) denounces in the strongest terms the increase of hate speech, intimidation, violence, vandalism, arson, and other hate crimes targeted against mosques, Muslims, or those perceived to be Muslim; (4) recognizes that the United States Muslim community has made countless positive contributions to United States society; (5) declares that the civil rights and civil liberties of all United States citizens, including Muslims in the United States, should be protected and preserved; (6) urges local and Federal law enforcement authorities to work to prevent hate crimes; and to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law those perpetrators of hate crimes; and (7) reaffirms the inalienable right of every citizen to live without fear and intimidation, and to practice their freedom of faith.
The fact that 82 Democrats have co-sponsored it will be used to validate the Muslim Brotherhood (CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, etc. etc.) claim that hate crimes have increased (and of course they haven’t for Muslims, although they may have increased against Jews in America, who are historically identified in FBI statistics as victimized in hate crimes five to ten times more frequently than Muslims in America).
H. Res. 569, in condemnation of violence, bigotry and “hateful rhetoric” toward Muslims in the U.S. has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.
This bill comes on the heels of Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s post-San Bernardino outrageous statement to the Muslim American community that she will prosecute anyone guilty of anti-Muslim speech. Passage of this legislation will be the death knell for the First Amendment and the end of any and all discourse and education about the threat posed by the global jihad.
The treacherous House Resolution was sponsored by U.S. Rep. Donald S. Beyer, Jr., a Virginia Democrat. It was introduced Dec. 17, 2015. Read the complete text of the Resolution and the list of left-wing co-sponsors.
Arizona Democrat Reps. Raul Grijalva (CD 3) and Ruben Gallego (CD 7) have shamefully signed on to this repressive lunacy which, if passed, signals not only the restriction, but the utter and complete death of the First Amendment.
Heritage Foundation reminds us that the oath of office taken by all members of Congress at the beginning of each term of office obligates them to observe the limits of their authority and act in accordance with the powers delegated to them by the Constitution.
These Democrats obviously think they are above such mundane restrictions.
