Not about fighting traffic tickets

Reader comment on item: CAIR Can Expel You "For Any Reason"

Submitted by Edward Cline (United States), Oct 1, 2012 at 22:37

For one thing, it seems that the publicity staff at CAIR hasn't mastered English:

"CAIR Leadership Conference & 18th Annual Banquet is/are private CAIR event(s)…"

The "Conference" and the "Banquet" could have been treated as a single event requiring a singular verb. That sentence must have been composed by someone steeped in slash-happy politically correct grammar. But, we can let that pass.

What is interesting is that these events are so secretive. If they've nothing to hide – if the speakers are merely going to yammer on about banal issues that don't propose to compromise national security or advance Sharia law, such as the Muslim way of changing baby diapers or how to fight a traffic ticket – why the warning to anyone who might go there expecting to hear just sleep-inducing speeches? Because that's what's on their minds: strategies and tactics and "bursts of bluntness" that they don't want heard or recorded by potential enemies. The message is in the warning and is an intrinsic tip-off that they're up to no good and ought to be audited.
