If reports out of Washington are correct, House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi may be on the verge of appointing Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.), the second Muslim to serve in Congress, to the House Intelligence Committee. Â If Pelosi (D-Calif.) follows through, Carson will be the first Muslim to serve on that panel.
Carson inherited, oops, won the seat his grandmother previously held in 2008.
Word began to surface on Tuesday, January 13, that this action will be taken by the former speaker via a piece in Politico. Â Pelosi has ratcheted up her buzz phrase rhetoric in recent days with the intent of guilting and shaming Republicans into abandoning their plans to counter all the “work” she and her caucus imposed on the American people. Â (Or she was pandering to her base.)
Carson would be the first Muslim to serve on the committee and was the second Muslim to be elected to Congress. He already serves on the Armed Services Committee and worked for the Department of Homeland Securityâ€™s Fusion Center â€” the clearinghouse established by the federal government to streamline data sharing between the CIA, FBI, Department of Justice and the military.
Why does this paragraph bring forth a vision of a fox and a hen house?
This is quite a resume being racked up in the American government for a man who had this to say:
â€œWe are not Americans,â€ he shouted. â€œWe are Muslims. [The U.S.] is going to deport and attack us! It is us vs. them! Truth against falsehood! The colonizers and masters against the oppressed, and we will burn down the masterâ€™s house!â€
It is this writer’s opinion that priorities should be ordered God, family, country-work, and then everything else, but Christians, the predominant religion in the United States, really haven’t threatened this.
At any rate, according to another 2012 Klein Online quote via Ulsterman, there’s also this:
Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.) has a history of association with a radical Muslim group that was an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme to raise money for Hamas. Carson is currently coming under fire for suggesting the U.S. needs to be â€œlooking atâ€ the madrassa model of education where the Koran serves as foundation. The group in question, the Islamic Society of North America, was listed by the Muslim Brotherhood as a â€œlike mindedâ€ organization that shares the goal of an Islamic nation. (NOTE* ISNA is actually a direct offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.)
And Nancy Pelosi wants to put this man on the House Intelligence Committee. Â Ulsterman summed up the disbelief that this could be happening quite well.
Itâ€™s not that Andre Carson is a member of Congress who also happens to be Muslim, but rather that Andre Carson is a member of Congress who happens to be a Muslim with long and troubling ties to anti-American organizations that advocate violence against any who oppose Islamic domination of America and the world.
And that is why this is a story that needs to be watched. Â Stay tuned.
