Yes, you are responsible for what he said. If you are a member or supporter of CAIR, you are responsible for their actions, their speech, their tactics. There is incontrovertible evidence that CAIR is a terrorist supporting Islamic group. No sane, informed person can deny that. The facts speak for themselves. It is your duty as a CAIR member or supporter to understand their agenda and to ensure that it is peaceful. It is not. By refusing to confront reality, you condone their terror support. You are as guilty as Omar Ahmad.
MM: "If he supported suicide bombing I condemn that but the agenda of CAIR is not to start suicide bombings, it is to teach Americans about Islam. Now, if youre going to call me ignorant you better be darn sure of your facts."
I am indeed calling your ignorant of reality. And my facts are damned sure accurate. I presented you with the evidence. The burden is now yours to disprove it. However, I believe you are not man enough to actually confront the evidence. Or perhaps the problem is that your "religion" has brainwashed you into denying reality, so you literally cannot perceive the truth even when it is presented to you. In any case, the fact of the matter is clear and the burden is on you to disprove it.
MM: "Have you ever been to a CAIR event?"
Obviously not. I do not support anti-American, anti-Semitic, terrorist organizations. I will assume though, for sake of argument, that you have at least enough intelligence and common sense to realize that CAIR is not going to publicly rally for terrorism and violence. Obviously that would be a losing tactic. Instead, it is the behind-the-scenes action and the subversive, covert actions that damn the organization. Just like master terrorist Yasser Arafat used to do. He'd publicly condemn terror and speak of peace in English, but once the (Western) cameras stopped rolling he would turn around and spew his pro-terror, anti-Semtic calls for violence in Arabic to Muslim audiences. There are video tapes of this, there is no way to deny it. CAIR is the same way.
MM: "Have you ever had a conversation with someone from CAIR?"
More times than I care to remember. I'm having one with you now. You're clearly a member or a supporter. And the song remains the same. Deny, deny, deny. As expected.
MM: "I would guess not?"
You would guess wrong. Not a big surprise.
I already am enlightened. I deal with reality all the time. I don't belong to a cult that requires me to live in denial of reality and to run from the truth. Hence, I can rightfully call those who are ignorant of facts, history, and reality "ignorant" and be justified in doing so.
So are you going to disprove the facts about CAIR's support of terror, or are you going to run and hide once more?
