This afternoon, in a Dearbornistan courthouse, Wayne County, Michigan prosecutors will face off against the First Amendment with regard to Pastor Terry Jones’ right to protest across the street from the Islamic Center of America in Dearbornistan, scheduled for tomorrow.
Dhimmi Prosecutor Kym Worthy Helps w/ Muslims Trying to Shut Down Pastor’s 1st Amendment Rights
You know my views on Jones, although I have defended him in the past. It’s not just his dumb Yosemite Sam facial hair. It’s that he’s a charlatan con man who is in this strictly for the money, as evidenced by the giant mortgage he took out on his church, quickly followed by hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal real estate investments. His reasons for the protest are suspect, other than to make money from gullible contributors. He doesn’t condemn Islam or the the extremist Hezbollah mosque in front of which he plans to protest. Because he’s a total ignoramus without a clue, Jones has already declared the extremist Islamic Center of America mosque as A-OK, as “Muslims loyal to America.” His Koran burnings are a pointless publicity stunt meant to inflame . . . and raise him more money for real estate investments. Yes, his Dove World Outreach Center is a personal slush fund. The guy is a fraud, but still entitled to First Amendment protections like everybody else. If they succeed in shutting him down, they are shutting us all down.
(The same can be said for the Rabbi without a congregation, Nachum Schifren, who plans to accompany Jones and is apparently also doing this for fundraising and publicity-seeking purposes. Schifren, who calls himself the “Surfer Rabbi” and is a frequent California Tea Party fixture, is close friends with Islamo-enabling GOP dhimmis Dana Rohrabacher and Grover Norquist. When I’ve confronted him about this, he responds with BS cop-out excuses that liberal Jews pander to Muslims, so it’s okay if his friends do, too. Kind of a hypocrite to be appearing at a protest in front of the mosque, don’t you think?)
That said, it’s disgusting what Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy is doing: trying to suppress Jones’ free speech rights with legal action in court, today, seeking to stop his protest scheduled for tomorrow in front of the mosque in Dearbornistan. The same goes for the unconstitutional $100,000 bond that the Dearbornistan Police Department is demanding that Jones post prior to his protest. Regardless of what anyone thinks of Jones, he still has–or should have–the same First Amendment rights as all Americans.
I’m not surprised by this as Worthy–who herself failed to pay her mortgage and lost her home, despite making well over $150,000 per year plus extravagant benefits–has an interesting sense of how to use her resources. With crime rampant in Detroit and the rest of Wayne County, she previously pursued and put in jail innocent cops who chased a drug suspect Malice Green, who died while hopped up on Coke and other drugs. Now, this. Why go after real criminals, when you can go after cops and protesters exercising their legal rights?
There is no basis for Worthy’s actions in court, today. Jones is peaceful and not calling for anyone’s death or anything of the sort. Heck, he’s already praised this extremist mosque. When I represented University of Michigan students and sued the school on their behalf, we were unable to stop Michigan from hosting convicted Islamic terrorist and Islamic Jihad founder and chief Sami Al-Arian, who was banned from his own campus and deemed a danger and threat to students there. We had a much better case. In Jones’ case, there is no evidence he is violent. And he is entitled to practice exercise his First Amendment rights like anyone else.
Muslims have already sued Dearbornistan and won, when they were required to get a permit for a protest they held in favor of Islamic terrorists and against Israel. Loyal Americans should have at least the same rights on American soil as disloyal Americans who are loyal Muslims do.
The City of Dearbornistan Police Department is insisting that Jones confine his protest to several “free speech zones.” The term, itself, in the United States of America, is an outrage and offensive to the Bill of Rights. This entire country–the publicly owned parts of it–is a free speech zone, last time I checked. If, as the Dearbornistan Police and Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy claim, the protest shouldn’t be allowed near the mosque because Jones has death threats and Muslim fatwas against him, why are their phony “free speech zones” any safer. Apparently, they are admitting that, yes, Muslims are violent, so we must cower to their threats.
That’s simply not the American way. If Jones loses in court today, he’ll certainly win the war for Free Speech, ultimately. There’s absolutely no reason why the First Amendment should apply only to Muslims and the Westboro Baptist Church.
It applies to everyone.
It should be noted that a number of Christian and Jewish alleged “leaders” are heavily quoted in the Detroit area media in support of the Hezbollah agent imam Hassan Qazwini, of the Islamic Center of America, who was sent here by the Iranian Ayatollahs. They are taking his side, despite his frequent anti-Semitic, anti-American, and anti-Israel statements and writings and his proud hosting of Louis Farrakhan for an openly anti-Semitic, anti-American speech in his mosque. Among those siding with Qazwini and against the First Amendment are Robert Cohen and Richard Nodel of the Detroit Jewish Community Council, an unelected, unrepresentative politburo of wealthy, liberal dummies and morons, who run to take the side of Muslims against Jews and Christians. So, it’s no surprise–and entirely predictable–that the sleazy Nodel would side with these enemies of the Jewish people, America, and the Bill of Rights.
It’s truly a sickening spectacle–and an ironic one–when liberals side with Iranian-backed extremists on U.S. soil against Americans and their First Amendment Rights.
But who said liberals were consistent or principled? Not me.
