Palm Beach County Public Affairs staffer John Jamason is being investigated for a Facebook post about Islam. There is every chance that he could be disciplined for making a “critical” statement about Islam on 9/11. Since when is it a crime to post a statement like this on one’s personal Facebook page? Where is the man’s right to free speech? Apparently free speech is a secondary issue when one of Florida’s leading Muslim groups is offended.
John Jamason incited the wrath of Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida, Inc because of a Facebook post about Islam. On Friday, September 13, the group demanded that all social media posts made by Jamason be turned over to them for inspection. They asked for a public records request to the county commission asking for communication sent by Jamason from any country computer within the past 3o days. This includes social media comments or anything that would be deemed personal.
On 9/11.2013, Jamason wrote on his Facebook page,” “Never forget. There is no such thing as radical Islam. All Islam is radical. There may be Muslims who don’t practice their religion, much like others. The Quran is a book that preaches hate,” the message said, according to WPTV.”
John Jamason is precisely correct. All Islam is radical. The Quran preaches nothing but hate. Everything he said is 100 percent truth and nothing that everyone truly aware with the nature of Islam has not said on social media and posted over and over again. This is free speech. But will speaking out cost Jamason his job?
