During a presentation, a U.S. Army Instructor whipped out a slide that identified examples of “Religious Extremism”. Note the photo of that list below. The second item on the list is “Muslim Brotherhood (Egypt / Muslim)”. At the bottom of the list?
Via Todd Starnes at Fox News Radio:
Where to begin?
Who is it that likes to throw around the “Islamophobia” label the most? Answer: The Muslim Brotherhood. Yet, according to this pseudo-instructor, the Muslim Brotherhood – as well as those who are rightfully concerned about them – are both extremist. What Ms. pseudo-instructor doesn’t have on the list is Muslim Brotherhood (U.S. / Muslim).
Also making this pseudo-instructor’s list was “Evangelical Christians”, “Catholicism”, and – get this – “Christian Identity”. Conspicuously absent from the list was “Christo-phobia”, which should be included if we apply the pseudo-instructor’s standard.
Moreover, any reference to a Muslim Brotherhood group / entity (Hamas, Al-Qaeda, Ikhwan, Sunnis, et. al.) on the list, places those groups as being outside the U.S. Conversely, all the Christian groups listed by this pseudo-instructor are identified as being in the U.S.
The Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. – once again – gets a pass while those who express concerns about such groups being here, are demonized as being afflicted with Islamophobia.
Oh, and guess where pseudo-instructor allegedly got her information?
The far left-wing group known as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper has cited more than once in his effort to play the… Islamophobia card.
Since pseudo-instructor got her information from SPLC, it makes perfect sense that “Islamophobia” would be cited as “religious extremism” while neither CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper (in video below), his group, nor the larger Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. is identified as extreme.
