in response to reader comment: CAIR'S REPEATED HARRASSMENT AND INTIMIDATION TOWARDS ANYONE WHO SPEAKS OUT AGAINST THEM

To All Concerned:

If I had any idealism left of this America I once believed and trusted in, an America that at one time would not have tolerated the very things taking place today; I admit that it definitely doesn't exist anymore.

I'm no stranger to the extortion scare tactics that CAIR uses against someone who dares to speak up to them by tracing their last name to their spouse's employment and approaching the employer by letter if they and their associates share anti-Muslim views too. I have no doubt that it was done in hope that my spouse would possibly get fired in the process for my speaking out.

This may sound ignorant to some, but the question points to our U.S. government and why it has allowed CAIR to exist knowing what they know about them. Apparently post 911 and 12 million illegal immigrants later, and we find ourselves awake to a nation that, in my opinion, is unrecognizable and foreign to me. It's not the same America I was born and grew up in, that's for sure. Oh yes, free speech is still alive as yet, but it is obvious that those days are being numbered while ACLU, far left buffoons and yes, our U.S. government pander to emboldening those behind this organization…allowing them to have the power of our freedoms to operate their evil agenda that has nothing to do with the best interest and welfare of this nation and its citizens. How terrific that we already have a Muslim in Congress. What's next...Maybe President of the White House? While we say that our freedoms in America are what makes our nation so great, we also discover that the enemy thinks their great too, especially when they can use those freedoms to take them away from us in time to come.

I have to wonder where are these concerned Americans who for some reason or another aren't banding together for a good ole U.S. Washington protest down Capitol Hill by the 100 thousands or more. That could rock the nation you would think. The illegal aliens managed time to protest in our streets, the Hollywood nut-jobs and radical far left society know how to exercise their free speech and get their voices heard. So when is it going to be the other side of American society‘s turn to speak out? What's the problem with the majority out there in America who are silent? Too busy gassing up the SUV to take Johnny to his sport activities and Susie to her dance lessons possibly? The cat and mouse game is getting old. Talk in America is getting cheap while the time for Americans to act and speak up is running out.
