The coming Democrat National Convention ought to be one to remember. Democrats are going to highlight the things that matter to them the most.
From Rush via the Daily Caller
Rush Limbaugh noted during his Thursday broadcast that the Democratic Party has planned an agenda filled with female speakers for its upcoming national convention, and explained that it appears the party will turn the event into “a celebration of abortion” and contraception.
The Democrats’ move comes in the wake of embattled Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin’s ill-advised remarks about abortion and “legitimate rape.”
“The Democrats are actually going to turn their convention into a celebration of abortion,” Limbaugh said. “They think that they’re on to something so powerful and so big here. They think the social issues are death for the Republicans and they think that this is a godsend.”
“And it’s going to be woman after woman after woman, and it’s going to be, ‘Abortion, abortion, abortion! Contraception, contraception, contracep — !’ It is going to be the Democrat Party’s 30-year-old playbook every night at their convention.”
And in a play on the saying “nothing is certain but death and taxes,” Limbaugh called this theme out of the Democrats proof that they have become “the party of death and taxes,” since the party has also been aggressively pursuing 10 years of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s tax returns.
“So this, as far as I’m concerned — if they follow through with this — will officially make them the party of death and taxes. I mean, they’re trotting every woman they can find out,” Limbaugh continued. “And then Barbara Boxer, saying that Todd Akin is just a symptom of the disease that is the Republican Party — that his comments are typical of a mind-set that pervades and perverts the entire Republican Party? We’ll see. But if you wanted proof that they are the party of death and taxes, this is it: They’re turn[ing] their whole convention over to this. Should be interesting.”
At the convention Democrats will be promoting radical Islam. From Redstate:
Starting at the end of this month the Democratic National Convention will open with a focus on Islam. 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend according to the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), the national Muslim American non-profit coordinating the two days of events they claim are non-political. ”Jumah at the DNC” begins August 29 and will start with a Friday afternoon jummah prayer followed by other unnamed programs and events, leading up to the Islamic Regal Banquet. The following day will be an all day Islamic Cultural and Fun Fest which will include discussions on the topics of Islamaphobia, Anti-Shariah, Middle Eastern Crisis, Patriot Act, National Defense Authorization Act and more. The purpose, according to BIMA, is to attract national and international attention to the plight of American Muslims and to hold political parties accountable for issues that affect them. However, not all Muslims feel that BIMA represents them and M. Zuhdi Jasser M.D., Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, has expressed serious concerns.
It is troubling that the Democratic National Convention has decided to promote and lend its name and national political platform to the organizers of the “Jummah at the DNC”. The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as advertised are no moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.
A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims. Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.
This is not about their right of assembly; this group under a different name pulled the same stunt at the US capitol in 2009 claiming 20k and getting 2-3k. THIS IS ABOUT the DNC calling this an “official function” listing these radicals as typical of the DNC community and more importantly about this organization speaking out AS representing supposedly typical American Muslims (or “Mainstream”).
If that is who the DNC is consorting with then all Americans, Democrats should be concerned. There are many patriotic Muslims who are part of both parties, and when radical ideologues like this do a demonstration of “solidarity” in the name of our faith and choose an imam like Siraj Wahhaj who I saw with my own eyes in 1995 seditiously say it his duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the US Constitution with the Quran- then we need to speak up!
And perhaps Rep. Kerry Gauthier D-MN will be a keynote speaker:
Police reports indicate 56-year old Gauthier was engaged in a sexual act with a 17 year old whom he met through the internet website Craigslist on the night of July 22nd.
The report states both parties have told police that the sex “was” consensual and that no money was exchanged.
Yep, democrats will be all over the issues that concern America the most.
