This Daily Caller story must be read to be believed:
Top Justice Department officials convened a meeting Wednesday where invited Islamic advocates lobbied them for cutbacks in anti-terror funding, changes in agents’ training manuals, additional curbs on investigators and a legal declaration that U.S. citizens’ criticism of Islam constitutes racial discrimination.
The department’s “civil rights lawyers are top of the line — I say this with utter honesty — I know they can come up with a way” to redefine criticism as discrimination, said Sahar Aziz, a female, Egyptian-American lawyer.
“I’d be willing to give a shot at it,” said Aziz, who is a fellow at the Michigan-based Muslim advocacy group, the Institute for Social Policy & Understanding.
The audience of Islamic advocates and department officials included Tom Perez, who heads the department’s division of civil rights.
My new book Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department details how throughout the DOJ, Eric Holder has hired platoons of new lawyers who previously worked for terrorists. Even the beneficiaries of the dismissal of the New Black Panther voter intimidation case were rabid anti-Semites.
Why would anyone at Eric Holder’s Justice Department (even the truth-challenged Tom Perez) waste their time with radicals who seem to have no respect for the First Amendment and American traditions limiting government power over free speech? To ask the question is to answer it.
One thing is clear — these Islamic would-be speech totalitarians went to the right place: the DOJ Civil Rights Division. For there they will find the most receptive audience possible inside the DOJ toward exerting lawless federal power to aid the pet cause of the latest victim group. If anyone can “come up with a way” to do something the law doesn’t permit, the Civil Rights Division can. This is a central story of my book Injustice: how the DOJ Civil Rights Division has not only become politicized, but also has become radicalized and pays little attention to the law (to the tune of over $4,000,000 in legal sanctions). According to the report, Tom Perez had no criticism for the proposed restrictions on the First Amendment. Hopefully freedom loving Americans and Jewish voters in places like Pennsylvania and Florida can relieve the scandal-plagued Assistant Attorney General of his job in January 2013.
