Michigan GOP Chairman Saulius “Saul” Anuzis asserts that Ron Paul should not be in the GOP Presidential debates. If he’s going to kick out Ron Paul, then it should be ditto for Wisconsin’s Dairy State Dummy, Tommy Thompson.
But if that’s the case, then Saul Anuzis needs to leave the national GOP stage, along with them. He’s hardly in a position to chastise Ron Paul’s absurd assertion that we deserved 9/11 because of our foreign policy.
As the Chairman of the GOP in Michigan–the heart of Islamic America and the heart of terrorist support in America–Saul Anuzis has bent over backwards, time and again, for Islamists in Dearbornistan and throughout the Detroit area, trying in vain to get their money and votes . . . and holding his ankles in the process.
He tried to recruit open Hezbollah and HAMAS supporter Nasser Beydoun to run for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate against Debbie Stabenow. The Shi’ite Muslim Beydoun, vocally anti-Israel and visibly making a prayer for “the martyrs” one Hezbollah rallies, took part in another anti-Semitic Hezbollah rally, and has opposed President Bush’s foreign policy–just like Ron Paul–from day one of the Iraq War, and from time immemorial on Israel and Iran. Ron Paul and Nasser Beydoun are ideological soulmates in a lot of ways–seeing eye to eye on most issues, especially the offensive statement that causes Anuzis to call for Ron Paul’s dismissal from the televised debates.
When I called him on this, months ago, Anuzis–whom I know–hemmed and hawed and lied about his recruitment of Beydoun, about which he openly bragged in the Detroit media, a couple of years ago.
Then, there’s Anuzis’ other disturbing ties. He recruited Jane Hershey Abraham, wife of Hezbollah-enabler and CAIR supporter (and now lobbyist for Muslim Middle Easterners) Spencer Abraham as Vice Chair of the Michigan Republican Party. Even though Mrs. Abraham does not live in Michigan (and is, therefore, not qualified to be a Michigan party officer), Anuzis told people he recruited her for the position because he “needs to get money and support from that community,” meaning the Muslim Arabs–that’s what Party activists who heard Anuzis said he meant.
Even though Spencer Abraham, himself, is not a Muslim, he is a Lebanese Christian who has made a recent career–in the U.S. Senate, in the Bush Administration as Energy Secretary, and now as a high-paid lobbyist–of enabling and assisting the most radical Islamic parties, including a man who headed a charity raided by Customs for funding Al-Qaeda. Abraham defended Yasser Arafat (he was one of only 2 Senators who refused to sign a letter calling on Bill Clinton to condemn Arafat’s terrorism) and put CAIR on the map on Capitol Hill at a time when the group was a nobody, well before 9/11. This is the community from which Saul Anuzis wants support. They’re Ron Paul’s natural allies, too.
But Ron Paul is a nutty libertarian. Far worse, Saul Anuzis is a scheming political prostitute.
Finally, Anuzis has been involved in high-ranking party officials, officeholders, and candidates hanging around and posing for pictures with Islamic extremists, agents of Iran and Hezbollah, and supports of HAMAS and Hezbollah. That includes former and likely future candidate for Governor Dick DeVos, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox, and former U.S. Senate Candidate and current Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard, and two of whom attended banquets for extremist Muslim terrorism supporters and posed for pictures with extremist imams who are known agents for Hezbollah and the Government of Iran.
So, to Saul Anuzis–the GOP leader who says that Ron Paul ought to be banned from GOP events–I say, interesting idea, BUT Look in the Mirror, Saul.
Pot. Kettle. Black. Ron Paul. Saul Anuzis.
