You may have heard a lot about plagiarist Scott McInnis, who is running in tomorrow’s (Tuesday’s) Colorado Republican Primary for Governor. He pulled an Andrew Breitbart and blamed his theft on “a researcher,” just as Breitbart pawned off his posting of a misleading partial video on someone else. But while McInnis’ blatant plagiarism–for which he was paid $300,000.00 by a foundation–would be enough for me not to vote for this RINO, there’s more. It’s who paid him that is a far more disturbing issue.
RINO Plagiarist Candidate for Gov in Bed w/ Extremists
Dr. Malik & Seeme Hasan @ the Bush Crawford, Texas Ranch
McInnis was paid by the Hasan Family Foundation, a foundation the purpose of which is “Promoting a Better Understanding of Muslim and South Asian Cultures.” Actually, I think many of us understand Muslim, uh, “culture” quite well. We need not suffer the Hasan Family’s propaganda telling us otherwise, including an anti-Israel, pro-homicide bombing movie they funded (and which their son directed), which aims to show us the Palestinian Muslim female protagonist’s “heroism” and “proactivity.” Through their foundation, the Hasans gave tens of thousands of dollars to the Jersey Shore gang of Islamic terrorism apologists: CAIR, the ACLU, the Islamic Institute (a/k/a the Islamic Free Market Institute, but try finding a free market in the Islamic world a/k/a the lands of the Arab boycott of Israel), pan-Muslim Grover Norquist’s Arabs, er . . . “Americans” for Tax Reform, and Islamic professor and propagandist (and Judea Pearl crony) Akbar Ahmad.
In fact, the Hasans paid for the exhibit table for Grover Norquist’s Islamic Institute–which had a financial relationship with several groups tied to Al-Qaeda–at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on more than one occasion in recent years, according to federal tax returns. The Hasan Family Foundation also gave thousands to the anti-Israel Carter Center, Oxfam and Doctors Without Borders. Check out the charity’s 2006, 2007, and 2008 tax returns for yourself. Oh, and by the way, the Hasans were frequent guests at the Bush ranch in Crawford, Texas (nope, I still don’t miss him yet). The Hasans made their gazillions through an HMO, Qual-Med.
McInnis came to the Hasan Foundation looking for a “fellowship” after he lost his Congressional seat. The Hasans–all devout Muslims–gave McInnis several hundred thousand dollars to write a paper. It turns out that his paper was ripped off–plagiarized. And he blamed it on the researcher, who says he sourced everything and that McInnis was the one who ripped it off, too lazy to do any original work for the several hundred thousand dollar gig. (Akbar Ahmad replaced McInnis in the fellowship and is using it to promote Islam in America.)
The question, to me, is not whether McInnis will be a plagiarist as Colorado Governor. Old habits die hard. Once a plagiarist, always a plagiarist. Once a thief, always a thief. The question is what the Hasan foundation and Islamic extremists will get out of McInnis, whose pockets they lined, if he is elected Governor of Colorado. That the question need be asked in the first place should tell you to vote for businessman Dan Maes in tomorrow’s Republican Primary, if you live in Colorado.
Muhammad Ali Hasan–Dr. Malik and Seeme Hasan’s son and also a board member of the Hasan Family Foundation–also ran for the Colorado state office as a Republican, but fortunately he did not succeed.
The Hasans are tightly ensconced in the CAIR/ISNA/MAS directorate of the Muslim Brotherhood in America–the alphabet soup of support and fundraising for Islamic terrorism, including HAMAS and Hezbollah. And they are openly anti-Israel. They set up a “Muslims for America” group, which supported the Hasans’ good friend, President George W. Bush (no, I still don’t miss him yet) and which was a Republican front group for CAIR. And fraud Dennis Miller had an apparent orgasm on his show over Muhammad Ali Hassan who produced a pro-Palestinian terrorism homicide bombing movie (more on that below).
Our friend, journalist Daniel Greenfield a/k/a the Sultan Knish, uncovered some interesting facts about the Hasans, including their son, failed Republican candidate Muhammad Ali Hasan:
* They support CAIR, the Muslim American Society, MPAC, etc.
From their Muslims for America website:
“We here at Muslims For America are proud to be apart of a great umbrella of American Muslim organizations, within our American political system.
One American Muslim group we have always admired is the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) lobbying organization. MPAC has worked hard to establish a strong office and presence in Washington DC, giving them great access to lobbying our American politicians. MPAC has used its resources and contributions well, in developing deep relationships with many politicians, including the Bush Administration. In turn, no American Muslim organization has created a better lobbying machine, on behalf of American Muslims, than MPAC. With that said, any lobbying efforts, done on behalf of American Muslims, should be referred to MPAC and we seek to assist MPAC in those lobbying efforts.
Another American Muslim organization that has impressed us greatly is the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Critics will point to CAIR’s past history of participation within possible terrorist organizations, but we here at Muslims For America have worked with CAIR since then and we verify that their organization has cleaned out any negative elements, in addition to maintaining the great faucets of their organization.”
In turn, as MPAC is doing the best job of handling lobbying efforts, while CAIR is doing the best job of handling civil rights efforts.
* Funded by mommy’s and daddy’s and his foundation, he is the director (and mom, Seeme Hasan, is the producer) of “Rabia,” a movie glamorizing a suicide bomber in Israel. It’s based on Wafa Idris, a Palestinian homicide bomber, though the suicide bomber in his movie does not appear to actually kill any Israelis when she blows up. From the movie website’s description:
Newt Gingrich & Mohammed Ali Hasan: Newt’s Against Ground Zero Mosque But Not Extremist Muslims w/ $$$
A story about a woman who must blow herself up in order to exist.
Rabia is a woman who must blow herself up in order to exist. From the moment she straps explosives to her bare body, we are exposed to flashbacks of Rabia’s past, filled with abuse, rejection, and struggle. With detonator in hand, we find ourselves asking whether Rabia’s act is one of evil or one of heroism?
Rabia is a woman who must blow herself up in order to exist. Ever so determined to complete her suicide mission, Rabia tricks Israeli soldiers, sneaks past checkpoints, and resorts to personal violence in order to achieve success. As we follow Rabia’s mission, from the moment she straps explosives to her bare body, we are exposed to flashbacks of Rabia’s past, filled with abuse, rejection, and struggle. By the time she steps onto a popular Israeli beach, awaiting to kill hundreds of innocent civilians in a massive explosion, we find ourselves asking whether Rabia’s act is one of evil or one of heroism?
On Rabia [DS: this entire part has since been deleted from the site--hey, he's running for office!]
I [DS: the "I" here is Muhammad Ali Hasan] wanted to tell the story of an anti-hero, someone who was working hard for a cause that he/she believed in, even though it might be a cause that is not accepted by society at large. I wanted people to evaluate the heroism that goes behind proactivity.
At around the same time, I had heard about the story of Wafa Idris, Palestine’s first suicide bomber. Idris blew herself up in an open square of Israel, killing one person and injuring others, in February of 2002…. I was impressed by her proactivity; most women in her situation would accept defeat and live lives of oppression. She decided to do something different with her life.
With all of that in mind, Idris provided me with the story I would need to communicate the theme that I most desired- the story of an anti-hero that we could support. . . . For me, Rabia is a hero because she did not suscumb [DS: sic] to the pain within her life; instead she strove to do something that would change her community for the better, in her mind. . . . I admire her proactivity.
* Muhammad Ali Hasan is against the Patriot Act, claims things are “peaceful” in “Palestine,” and claims that people in Pakistan don’t support Bin Laden. Hilarious. He also bragged that he helped water down the Patriot Act.
* Muhammad Ali Hasan repeatedly bashed Israel during the Israel-Hezbollah War and promoted Islamic terrorism. Check out these comments he made on FOX News (as one of the network’s “moderate Muslims” on display–“fair and balanced”?)–the coverage of Hasan’s appearance has been cleansed from the page at the the Muslim American Society link above, FYI:
“Gibson’s smile evaporated when Hassan said the “Israel is a major stumbling block to peace…they are a militaristic bully…Israel has learned a hard lesson…” at which point Gibson interrupted and said “wait a minute, is Hezbollah off the hook”? Hassan replied that Israel is “hiding behind bombs and guns.”
* Muhammad Ali Hasan opposed calling Mohammed Taheri-azar a terrorist. Taheri-azar was the Muslim North Carolina college student who deliberately drove his jeep into crowds of students for “jihad” against the “infidels” and described himself as following in the footsteps of Mohammed Atta.
* Muhammad Ali Hasan wrote a piece on Naseeb.com (since conveniently “erased”), in which he defended CAIR, encouraged affiliations with HAMAS and Hezbollah, and said those terrorist groups would be even better if they were run by Mohammed:
As the President of Muslims For America and Muslims For Bush, I have worked with CAIR in the past and I know that they are a terrific group. Along with MPAC (Muslims Public Affairs Council), CAIR is always at the forefront of protecting the civil liberties of American Muslims. . . .
Does labeling Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups suddenly give blanket waver to the atrocities that are committed against Muslims around the world?
Absolutely not – Israel’s army is a terrorist organization. . ..
at the end of the day, the fighters behind Hamas and Hezbollah are ‘freedom fighters’ not terrorists. Technically, this is a fair argument because many of their fighters seem motivated by liberating Muslims, rather than killing Israelis.
* Muhammad Ali Hasan supports removing all sanctions against Iran. And those comments have been ethnically cleansed by the Naseeb.com website on which they appeared, too.
* Muhammad Ali Hasan repeatedly stalked his ex-girlfriend and chastised her when they were dating because he said he could taste pork on her breath when they kissed. First, there’s this:
A temporary restraining order was filed against state representative candidate Muhammad Ali Hasan by his former girlfriend and publicist Alison Miller.
Miller accused Hasan, a Republican who is running to represent Eagle County in District 56, of harassing her by text message, attempting to break into her e-mail, and then repeatedly demanding that she sign a waiver saying she would not sue him for doing so, according to court documents. . . .
According to the order, Hasan cannot be within 100 feet of Miller or her children and must stay away from her home and workplace.
Miller, a former Vail Daily reporter, alleges Hasan kept tabs on her whereabouts and shows up unannounced despite being asked to stop. she also alleges Hasan tried to threaten her into signing the waiver.
“(The situation) led up to him taking me to his attorney’s office just two hours after I was released from the hospital and was ordered to bed rest and was on pain meds and anti-nausea meds, and he demanded I sign the documents before he took me home,” Miller wrote in a court petition.
Then, there’s this ipecac-in-print:
But one night, after a Young Republicans debate, Ali found himself kissing her against her car. At first they’d kept things quiet and casual. “If there is one elected office I have held, it is ‘Mayor of Commitment-Phobia-Ville,'” he says. “I told her, ‘I’m a bad guy. I’m this womanizing mean guy who wants to be a politician.'” But then one day Bartleson caught them making out in between interviews for a campaign assistant, and Ali decided to go public with the relationship. Miller transitioned into a volunteer role to avoid a conflict of interest. And she stopped eating pork because Ali, who keeps a halal diet, said he could taste it on her breath when he kissed her.
These are the views, activities, and behavior of the Hasan Family and the foundation they fund and run. Do you want a governor who took their money?
Only if you’re a moron. And want many more 9/11s on U.S. soil.
