Yet silent on protecting Americans from jihadists?
Thursday, June 4, 2009
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder released the following statement relating to President Obama’s historic speech today in Cairo, Egypt:
“The President’s pledge for a new beginning between the United States and the Muslim community takes root here in the Justice Department where we are committed to using criminal and civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans. A top priority of this Justice Department is a return to robust civil rights enforcement and outreach in defending religious freedoms and other fundamental rights of all of our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the housing market, in our schools and in the voting booth.
“There are those who will continue to want to divide by fear – to pit our national security against our civil liberties – but that is a false choice. We have a solemn responsibility to protect our people while we also protect our principles.”
What in the heck are they talking about?
They need to be protecting Americans from Islamic extremists. Not the other way around.
Immediately following the Tiller shooting, Eric Holder sent US Marshals to abortion clinics to protect “appropriate people” across the nation:
“The murder of Dr. George Tiller is an abhorrent act of violence, and his family is in our thoughts and prayers at this tragic moment. Federal law enforcement is coordinating with local law enforcement officials in Kansas on the investigation of this crime, and I have directed the United States Marshals Service to offer protection to other appropriate people and facilities around the nation. … As a precautionary measure, we will also take appropriate steps to help prevent any related acts of violence from occurring.”
Have US Marshals been sent to military recruitment offices across the nation? No. Instead we get a statement assuring Muslims that the Obama DOJ is committed to protecting them.
This is a crazy, mixed up country we’re living in, right now.

UPDATE (June 6):
Doug Ross @ Journal connects some dots.
Wow. Believe me when I tell you…this will be the strangest thing you’ll see all day.
I haven’t posted anything this crazee in awhile, but who can resist a police tasering video starring a self proclaimed artist and a poet, at peace with every man in the nation, calling on the compassions of the universe, complete with singing and invocations of the evil witch queen, Yahweh, and the angels and archangels.
Don’t miss the super human hippie strength and speed at the end.
Exit question: What the heck do you suppose he was on?
