Update: Erik Erikson has absolutely lambasted and quartered the incestuous relationship that is the Mainstream Media and Democrat apparatchik within the DC beltway mentality. The first post was a corker – the second has this devastating bit to it. While he’s talking about the intersection of the Uppity Lefty Media and the Uppity Lefty Democrats, it outlines exactly the intent of the New Hampshire Herald’s intent:
Believe it or not, many Americans in this country would have a hard time believing that a person could be married to an abortion rights activist without being okay with that activism. And those Americans would more likely than not conclude that the reporter married to the abortion rights activist, the Democratic operative, the Joe Biden communications director, etc. share their spouse’s liberal world view. If we are honest about it, we’d have to admit that in most cases the Americans concluding that would be absolutely right.
“Democrat Maggie Hassan is running for the most powerful office in New Hampshire. But there are emerging questions as to whether she’s got the right sense of judgment necessary for the office stemming from her husband’s ties with radical Islamists, many of whom belong to organizations with terrorist connections.
…Did Maggie Hassan know what her hubby was up to, and did she approve of it? Ahmed Bedier of the Council on American Islamic Relations spoke to PEA assemblies in 2006 and 2009. CAIR was created by the terror organization Hamas. Its charter calls for the destruction of Israel. CAIR has funneled large sums of money to Hamas. Among those tied to CAIR are Ismail Royer, Bassem Khafagi, Ghassan Elashi, Musa Abu Marzook, Imam Siraj Wahaj and Rabih Haddad – all considered to be jihadist promoters.
For the record, CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation Trial, the largest terrorism trial in American history. The Egyptian born Bedier has a longstanding history of demonizing Israel and making excuses for Hamas and Hezbollah. Nancy Khalil of the Muslim American Society also spoke at PEA on March 16, 2010. According to federal documents on terrorism, the MAS was “founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States.”
It is the Muslim Brotherhood that has now taken over power in Egypt. It has advocated for a one world caliphate encompassing all countries and all people. Advocates have stated that a Muslim flag will one day fly over the White House and that Shari’ah Law (the severely restrictive law governing all daily actions) will be the law of the United States. It is antithetical to the US Constitution (we are judges to be infidels simply because we free people create our laws – blasphemy to true Islamists). In their world, our State Motto would be sorely tested “Live Free or Die” – the true believers would make that happen (just look at what the Taliban is now doing in both Pakistan and Afghanistan).
It seems that Philips Exeter Academy likes playing host to these types of folks. The New Hampshire Herald (written by Chris Anu) came out with this story on the 5th – well done with lots of references to Islamofascist groups and individuals and linkages between them all. And all of them lead back to one NH point – Philips Exeter Academy where Maggie “The Red” Hassan’s husband is the headmaster there. While there are a number of knocks on her about not knowing the tribulations that property tax paying folks, property owners trials, and the like (she and her husband live on campus thanks to Philips Exeter Academy), this is an article of another type – it raises a lot of questions in our minds “where does the loyalty lie“? She certainly is a Progressive – while she may mention the Constitution, her values are not “strict Constitutionally” based (else, why would she even CONSIDER creating legislation dubbed MaggieCare (whereby all the hospitals in the state would effectively lose control to an unelected and unaccountable board that was also self-funding by taxing those it “oversees”) and MaggieSpeech (whereby any political speech effectively would have been strictly regulated by the State). Totalitarian – just like Shari’ah Law. Read those names again
You look on the blogs that cover Islamofascism – and a lot of it is based on college campuses all over the country. Search on MSA, islamofascism, and Berkely – the California College system is rampant with it. Following in the footsteps of Socialism here in the States, they have adopted the tactic of going after “skulls full of mush” – kids whose memory banks are incompletely filled with the basic knowledge to be able to identify real from fake. Here at the ‘Grok, I’ve posted several times about surveys that show how badly our youth know our history, our Ideals, and the basis of American Exceptionalism. In its place are the cool, pleasant flakes of multiculturalism, tolerance, and diversity – and the MAS and MSA (Mustlim Student Association) and its backers are taking advantage of that lack.
We know from the HLF [Holy Land Foundation] trial that the Muslim Brotherhood has a blueprint for overthrowing the government of the United States. The MAS is an integral part of that plan. Khalil is also a board member of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center. Yusuf al- Qaradawi, the spiritual head of the Muslim Brotherhood, who is banned from entering America, was somehow listed as a trustee for the ISB for seven years. The ISB has also written checks to the HLF, which funneled money to Hamas. What did Maggie Hassan know, and when did she know it?
Ingrid Mattson, former president of Islamic Society of North America, spoke at Phillips Exeter in November 2005. ISNA and its affiliate organization, the North American Islamic Trust, admitted in court in 2008 that they have ties to Hamas. They funneled money directly to Mousa Abu Marzook, leader of Hamas. Federal documents quoting Hamas writings include such rhetoric as, “The day that enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the individual duty of every Moslem. In face of the Jews’ usurpation of Palestine, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised. To do this requires the diffusion of Islamic consciousness among the masses, both on the regional, Arab and Islamic levels. It is necessary to instill the spirit of Jihad in the heart of the nation so that they would confront the enemies and join the ranks of the fighters.”
Is this a shared ideology that inspired ISNA to funnel money to Hamas under the false flag of “charity?” Mattson once claimed that if you are a Muslim-American, the country cannot “demand the same kind of loyalty” from you as from a non-Muslim. She also said, “There is no guarantee that Americans will rise to the challenge of defining themselves as an ethical nation.” Does Maggie Hassan share these odious sentiments, which her soul mate force feeds his young charges?
…But Thomas Hassan’s method of operation of bombarding his students with radical militant Islamic speakers year after year speaks for itself.
A one world caliphate, openly advocated for, is a totalitarian State ruled by a real unelected and unaccountable theocracy (as in Iran). The end state, for all of the blather, of Progressives is also a totalitarian State ruled by an unelected and unaccountable cadre of “dispassionate and non-partisan” technocrats. The common coin of the realm of both is a two class system: rulers and subjects. It is rather droll that most Progressives are highly incensed about the religious components of America (e.g., Evangelicals, Catholics, et al) forcing a theocracy on the US. In most cases, they would like nothing more than to eliminate religion from the public square.
Politics makes for strange bedfellows, one might surmise – in this case it may be “get rid of the People of the Book and the Constitutionalists first, then we will fight it out”. Or is one of them “the useful idiot”?
The article goes on to relate how they have tried to get answers from both Maggie’s campaign and from Philips Exeter Academy. Perhaps it is time for more people to ask more questions – we may well be contacting the Communications Directors of both the Hassan campaign and PEA.
