HAMAS’ CAIR Netwk In Love With Rick Perry (& It’s Mutual)

By Debbie Schlussel

We’ve already had one Islamo-pandering Texas Republican Governor as President.  We don’t need another, in Texas Governor Rick Perry.  The first version of him, Gov. George W. Bush, beat Al Gore in getting the Islamic endorsement, then squandered the next eight years in the White House giving Muslims special treatment and increasing their immigration numbers to America.

Deja Vu: It’s George Dhimmiya Bush All Over Again . . . .

And so it’s in that vein that I can’t understand the fascination by some normally good people with Rick Perry.  My friend, Michael Reagan–who normally gets it on the Islamic threat–endorsed Perry for President.  And, when he announces his candidacy for the White House, thousands of Christians who get the Islamic threat to America will support his bid.  That’s despite the fact that Perry is close with open Islamic terrorism supporter, Palestinian extremist Farouk Shami, who bragged that his father killed many innocent Jews in Israel.  And it’s despite the fact that the HAMAS financier and unindicated HAMAS co-conspirator in Islamic terrorism, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Action Network is having allahgasms over Perry.  If they support him, it’s a good reason to oppose this Republi-dhimmi.

CAIR Network sent out an e-mail gushing over Rick Perry and linking to part of this gushing, drooling article about Perry and Islam, from the Houston Chronicle:

Gov. Rick Perry’s relationship with Muslims may set him apart

Gov. Rick Perry’s friendly relationship with some Texas Muslims was touted in a recent story on

While some other presidential candidates bring up concerns about American Muslims’ loyalty and decry Islamic law in the U.S., here’s a Christian, Republican politician who initiated a teacher-training program on Islamic history and has been friends for years with the Aga Khan, head of an Islamic sect called Ismailis, Salon points out. Perry even laid the first brick at the groundbreaking ceremony for an Ismaili worship center in Plano in 2005. . . .

“The Muslim community has a significant number of political conservatives, and they do support Perry,” said Mustafaa Carroll, executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations in Houston. . . . Carroll notes that Muslims donated to President George Bush’s campaign and have given to Perry’s gubernatorial campaigns.

When HAMAS’ front in the U.S. (CAIR Network) and the Islamo-pandering mainstream media are in ecstasy over Rick Perry, it’s a pretty big sledgehammer of a hint:

He ain’t good for America.

If Rick Perry is the GOP nominee for President, I will throw away my vote and pull the Libertarian lever. I do not need Mohammed’s fave Republican in the White House anymore than I need Barack Obama there.

I hope Michele Bachmann and the other candidates pounce on HAMAS’ love affair with Rick Perry. And that it’s apparently mutual.

I’ve said this before on this website and I’ll say it again. This looks like yet another example of what appears to part of a Muslim plan to destroy Israel via weakening US support for Israel.

The Arabs/Muslims know the only chance they have to destroy Israel is to eliminate US support for Israel.

How can they pull it off?

1. Flood the US with Muslim immigrants who can later become citizens and vote for anti-Israel candidates.

2. Throw money at corrupt,amoral, and possibly anti-Semitic politicians who will in turn do their bidding.

Political parties and ideologies mean nothing in this case. Muslims can find greedy,amoral,and/or anti-Semites on both the left and the right of the spectrum.

People should not be surprised about pro-Arab Texans. After all, Big Oil has always been pro-Arab and anti-Israel.

BTW, could Michigan’s popularity with Arabs have anything to do with Henry Ford’s vicious anti-Semitism?

Ladies & Gentlemen, presenting Mr. Elmer Gantry:

Everything about this guy reminds me of the Martin Sheen character in the movie “The Dead Zone.”

Irving on August 13, 2011 at 12:23 am

I’ve never liked Perry. Re his Day of Prayer recently, I have nothing against a candidate being demonstrative about religion, but for Perry it was clearly a way of dodging comment on any of the issues.

He is strongly for illegal immigration and affirmative action, and much of Texas’ job growth is because of oil in the state.

His foreign policy would probably be Ron-Paul-lite.

The fact that so many ‘conservative’ commentators are praising him is kind of like the earlier mania for Donald Trump.

The only Republican candidate capable of saying anything about Perry’s Islamophilic attitude, sadly, is Herman Cain. And he’s not likely to be around much longer, and the value of any comments by him would be diminished by the frequency he’s made a fool of himself.

Bachmann is the best of the lot, but she’s beginning to sound like a broken record now, expressing comments only over a very narrow range of issues and positions, just like the rest of them.

We really need a third party.

Little Al on August 13, 2011 at 1:04 am

And I don’t mean a liberal hack like Bloomberg.

Little Al on August 13, 2011 at 1:06 am

Is it too late to give Texas back to Mexico? We can trade them for Baja, California.

It’s looking like 2012 will be a waste of time (for anyone who really cares about this country’s future) at the polls.

Is it time for the military to take over the USA yet? Ah, hell, they’ve become as PC as anything.

Maybe we can welcome our Chinese overlords instead. At least they get the trains crashing on time.

Derision 2012 on August 13, 2011 at 2:30 am

I thoroughly enjoy your writing Debbie, but cannot agree with your conclusion on this one. Rick Perry will make a great President and will not bow to any Islamists in the final analysis. Admittedly a blow up doll could do a better job than Obama and the Republicans have many good candidates to choose from and a few poor ones (all of whom would still be better than Obama) but Perry has been elcted governor in Texas three times and the people of Texas have no love whatsoever for these middle eastern terrorists types. If Perry was as skewed as you conclude he would never have been elected a second time here. All candidates have flaws, but Perry will do the right thing in the end. This is something that cannot be said about Obama.

RDG on August 13, 2011 at 9:12 am

    That’s where I part company here. Facts are stubborn things. We are not talking about Perry’s domestic record. We are discussing on this thread his ties to various Islamic groups. What we don’t need is another Republican Islamo-pandering President. George Bush may have been the lesser of two evils. As I have already stressed, once is enough. People now have an object lesson in what these policies do – and they are and would be a disaster for America.

    NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 2:46 am


Then it goes along with what I’ve been saying all along…..the republican party is purposely throwing the election to Obama.

Squirrel3D on August 13, 2011 at 9:26 am

    You’re damn skippy, Squirrel! Spot on. I agree and it’s a disgrace.

    Don’t forget this fraud on his pushing of Guardicil on Texas girls.

    Thanks DS. I KNEW this fraud was next.

    THIS is the place to come to get the good guts. For those who stupidly and mistakenly feel that we are all “kool-aid” drinkers…you are woefully WRONG and if you used your critical thinking skills, you’d start thinking (and eventually seeing) in lieu of guzzling the REAL kool-aid!

    Skunky on August 13, 2011 at 10:58 am

To RDG, how does Rick Perry do the right thing in the end when he allowed Islamic understanding and education in Texas schools to the point when Muslims in Texas would gain a greater foothold in replacing Christianity with Islam? Perry sold out Christianity by allowing these Muslims to teach, proselytize, and spread Islam in Texas. That is treason.

That former Democrat progressive turncoat is setting up a major confrontation down the road!

Rob on August 13, 2011 at 10:27 am

    That former Democrat progressive turncoat is setting up a major confrontation down the road!
    Rob on August 13, 2011 at 10:27 am

    Well that explains it. Ain’t no such thing as a ‘former’ democrat (except for Ronald Reagan). An infiltrator more than a turncoat, he’s still serving his people no matter what label he takes.

    Now, a ‘former Republican’ would just mean he wasn’t one all along.


    theShadow on August 14, 2011 at 1:44 am

Dear Debbie,

Islam expansion in the world is based on deception, treachery and baiting people. The distribution of school supplies is intended to generate good will among the recepients and prepares them to accept the Islamic claims that Muhammad was a messenger from G-d. Unfortunately our leaders have elected to be fools. When some one like Geert Wilders is calling for repatriating all Moslems in Europe to their birth lands we see politicians in America embracing these treacherous terrorists. Why??? I do not know. May be we should multiply our numbers to be able to block this travesty,

G. R. SCHAROUBIM on August 13, 2011 at 10:28 am

And the Wall Street Journal today (Sat. 8/13) has an article on the bottom of page A-11 about Perry’s cronyism, where he wasted millions and millions of dollars of taxpayer money. What do you think would happen if he hit Washington?

Little Al on August 13, 2011 at 11:23 am

I attended the Willowcreek Leadership Summit this week and heard what sounded very much to me like an anti-semitic, anti-Israel undercurrent mixed with great globs of leftist anti-capitalism, black liberation theology and its newly emerged twin, “white” liberation theology–mostly espoused by the highly degreed ruling elite who seem exceptionally eager to construct a global socialist game plan which will rid them of their guilt about the accident of their birth into relative affluence.

The leftist wing of the “evangelical church” is blending with islam and marxism as a result of having bowed down to the false gods known as “tolerance” and “multi-culturalism.” All this in an effort to bring about what they arbitrarily define as “social justice” and wealth redistribution (the gospel is seen as part of that “wealth”) throughout the world. This is a very global conceptualization of “how things ought to be” and what they deem is the “church’s” proper role in making it happen.

Perry might represent the “right wing” of the “evangelical church” which is attempting to compete for position within this highly politicized, leftist, chrislamo-fascist paradigm.

Such “tolerance” of the intolerable, I fear, will herd us straight into a brutal form of eclectic faux-theocratic totalitarianism.

Lynne Hybel (wife of Bill Hybel, executive pastor of Willowcreek Church in South Barrington, IL,) along with Jim Wallis, has written what I think are anti-Israel articles using the lexicon i.e. “occupied territories” of the leftist/islam propaganda machinery.

This deadly blend of Chrislamo-fascism (whether they realize that’s what they’re doing or not,)rooted in the leftist establishment’s worship of “tolerance” and competition between “christian evangelical leaders” for prominent position within the leftist establishment, is so infecting christianity today.

Aurora on August 13, 2011 at 11:29 am

    Aurora. I loved your second paragraph. You are on to something there.

    It’s maddening and crazy-making.

    Skunky on August 13, 2011 at 12:55 pm

      Thank you, Skunky. Alarm bells all around!

      So these “christians” see their role as authors of global transformation, especially because they’re relatively wealthy, spoiled, white, middle-to-upper class elites who have access to the wealthy and powerful. Creating the world in their leftist image, of course–which they do in the name of G-d. A form of using His name in vain.

      So they see themselves as divinely dispatched agents of global transformation?


      So do muslims.

      But it’s Israel and those damn jooz who are trying to control the world, doncha know.

      Aurora on August 13, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Aurora on August 13, 2011 at 11:29 am”

    That…is a pretty freakin’ scary thought.
    Since when did Christianity, fascism and satanic cults find common ground?


    theShadow on August 14, 2011 at 2:10 am


White liberation theology emerged first. James Cone articulated black liberation theology in order to imitate and build on white liberation theology. Liberation theology is just Marxism, and Marxism was invented by whites. Black Marxists merely imitate the white Marxists, and do not indulge in a whole lot of critical thinking when they do.

Willowcreek is not evangelical. Liberals began calling themselves evangelical a few years ago as a political and PR tactic designed to increase exposure for themselves and distract attention from legitimate evangelicals. Sort of a “not all evangelicals are monolithic, some evangelicals support abortion, gay marriage, environmentalism, feminism etc. too!” These folks claimed that evangelicals had hi-jacked the true meaning of Christianity – progressive politics! – and that they were “taking it back” by calling themselves evangelicals.

Also, similar to George W. Bush before him, Rick Perry does not represent evangelical Christianity. (George W. Bush, incidentally, was not an evangelical Christian. He repeatedly, publicly, specifically denied and rejected a number of core evangelical Christian creeds and beliefs while embracing none of them. Barack Obama, based on his public professions of Christian faith, is actually more evangelical than George W. Bush was. The issue is that evangelicals chose to ignore both George W. Bush’s rejections of evangelical beliefs and Barack Obama’s embrace of the same because of partisan politics.) Instead, he is merely duping gullible evangelicals into voting for him.

I am becoming more convinced that Mitt Romney will be the next president anyway. Perry and Bachmann will split the vote, Hunstman and Pawlenty will drop out, leaving Romney by default.

Gerald on August 13, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    Good Afternoon, Gerald.

    It’s fairly certain that leftists have been sitting in evangelical church pews all along. Leftists are in every major institution, after all. They’re the totalitarians among us who are drawn to either ruling over others or wanting to be ruled versus living in an arrangement where folks self govern, decide things for themselves and among themselves (democratically,) and pretty much live and let live.

    But I see your point. They’re exploiting an opportunity to fabricate a powerful & effective public image that’s affording them new opportunities to link with others who’re more powerful to accomplish their totalitarian goals.

    The idea is to put an “evangelical christian” face on their POLITICAL notions of tolerance, inclusion, multi-culturalism, social justice, wealth redistribution, etc…

    It’s self-deception, because they really believe this is the message of the gospel and what Jesus wants them to do. When asked, “WWJD,” their answer is, “more & better marxism.” A political answer to a religious question. This is the same idea in nazism or islam/shariah–lay a thick layer of “religious” or divine mandate veneer over a totalitarian political movement.

    No wonder islamic leaders want to join forces with them. They are no threat whatsoever. They make the way smoother for islam and they carry the propaganda water against Israel.

    Aurora on August 13, 2011 at 2:15 pm

Gov Perry is a devout Christian and strong American, so it is not surprising that he has no hate toward Muslims; we leave the hatred and bile to Muslims and Leftists, they do it so well. I do not believe, though, that Mr Perry would allow CAIR to influence so greatly the DOJ, DHS and CIA, as Mr Obama has done; in fact, the relationship between CAIR and the current administration, with an AG right in CAIR’s pocket, is less an association than akin to a marriage. Still, there are other Republicans who will be better choices for a strong, sharia-resistent America, and while I would rather cast a vote for one of them (particularly Mrs Bachman), to disparage Mr Perry for practicing Christian charity (rather than giving it the usual lip service) is unfair.

Ralph Vaughan on August 13, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    Ralph ~

    Unapologetically and unequivocally standing against all that islam/shariah represents, and not befriending those who actively support its spread and terrorist organizations, is not the same thing as having hate toward muslims.

    Aurora on August 13, 2011 at 4:07 pm

Anyone is better than the Goddamn America president in the white house. Lucky us, we get to vote them out every 4 years.

M: It figures that a supporter of another CAIR fan and fraud, Thad McCotter, would make such a moronic statement. Get a clue. Barack Obama is not the benchmark above which anything is acceptable. Statements like yours are idiotic and pure, destructive partisanship. Having an R after your name doesn’t make you a great President. Morons like you are the reason we had an Islamo-pandering President named Bush for 8 years, which brought us Obama. No thanks. DS

Mccotterite on August 13, 2011 at 3:41 pm


    I don’t want more of the same. Michelle Bachmann for instance has some flaws but if Debbie had to choose between her and Perry, its no contest.

    Bush may have been the lesser of two evils but we’re well past that now. The lesser of two evils is no longer good enough for our country.

    NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 1:08 am


It is true that political and theological liberals have always self-described as evangelicals. It is equally true that such people are getting better organized, more vocal, more funding, and are having more success at infiltrating evangelical organizations and co-opting their message. It is precisely for this reason that the fundamentalist movement was created by people leaving the evangelical one.

What I was speaking of were people who never were evangelicals and despised and attacked evangelicals not so long ago now doing their best to identify as evangelicals in order to redefine what it means to be evangelical. The same thing was done with a variety of movements … the left was able to redefine it on their terms.

Gerald on August 13, 2011 at 4:45 pm

Ralph Vaughan:

Rick Perry is a devout Christian? How do you know this? Because he says that he is?

And were he a strong American, he would be much better on defending our borders. He would also be much better on national sovereignty issues (i.e. the U.N., the IMF, the WTO, NAFTA, the World Bank). And he also wouldn’t have tried to force Guardicil on Texas girls. Perry is a NWO type just like Bush and Obama. Period.

Gerald on August 13, 2011 at 4:48 pm

I live in Austin, Texas. Many (most?) Texas Republicans aren’t too happy with Rick Perry.

He’s a politician. He used to support Al Gore. Now he’s a Republican in a very safe Texas filled with Republicans. He hasn’t had to do much and he hasn’t done much. He’s made friends with some very rich people and he’s helped his friends.

He’s not what America needs right now.

Is he better than Obama? Sure, but that’s not saying much. He’s a typical politician in a time when his type should be drummed out of office. Will he stand up for principles in the face of difficult opposition? Will he make the hard choices to save America? Absolutely not.

Texans knew this announcement was coming for a long time. We’re less than thrilled–and not because he’s done such a great job as governor that we want to keep him.

Barry Popik on August 13, 2011 at 4:58 pm

“…And another one bites the dust.”

Christian or not, I cannot vote for someone who supports any aspect of Islam or its traditions and outreaches. So much for Rick Perry. Michelle Bachman is going to be eaten alive by the press, and I doubt she’s up to the pressure. Palin is a no-go. That unfortunately leaves RINO Mitt Romney who is just a Republican version of Obama. Thanks to Ms. Schlussel, I did not vote for Rick Snyder because of his support for Hamas.

John on August 13, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    John, I had this same conversation with my son just this morning. He has lived in TX since 96. He says Perry is not what he seems, says he is arrogant, and has skeletons….

    sharon on August 13, 2011 at 5:50 pm

Debbie from what I’ve seen so far I still like Palin the best. I’m sure if we started dating you would be in complete agreement by our first shabbes together.

A1 on August 13, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    Not really. The bare minimum isn’t good enough. Not all of us who voted for Bush twice were morons. But having seen what his pro-Islamic policies have done to the country, we will be morons for sure if we embrace a candidate who offers to continue those very same policies.

    NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 3:19 am

@Aurora who posted his/her interesting comment at 11:29 am, one should look no further than the man who came up with that mad monstrous concept: Pastor Rick Warren.

Rob on August 13, 2011 at 7:25 pm

Hanging out with CAIR is truly the “Mark Of Cain” for any candidate running for higher office. It is like finding rat feces in your favorite food. This should be a spoiler.

Worry01 on August 13, 2011 at 8:15 pm

A while ago, I wrote here that I would vote for any Republican nominee against Barack Obama except for Ron Paul and that if G-d forbid Paul were to be the nominee, that I would vote for either a third party candidate or do a write-in vote.

Well, in light of the information that Debbie wrote here above, I now have no choice but to amend that to also add Rick Perry to the list along with Ron Paul. (I don’t think that Chris Christie will run this time).

JeffE on August 13, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    Three Nos: Ron Paul, Chris Christie and Rick Perry. As other facts come to light, this will help to winnow the GOP presidential field for conservatives who care about America’s future.

    NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 3:22 am

Perry is good friends with Aga Khan, and Perry has aided Khan in his various efforts to “promote” Islam in the US.

Yes, I know Salon is looking to derail any Republican frontrunner, but facts are facts.

Santorum did pretty well in straw poll. I remember him making an anti-Shariah speech awhile back. Maybe he’s the guy.

adam on August 13, 2011 at 11:37 pm

Amen, Skunky. I saw TexasFred’s post before Debbie either deleted his post or put it under moderation. I also visited his website. He claims to be anti-PC.

Well, now TexasFred has three choices. They are:

1) Rebut this post, either here or on his blog–if the latter, then he should post a brief comment here with a link to his rebuttal.

2) Come back here and apologize to Debbie, and also to all of her readers here (since he by extension called us stupid too)and restore his link on his site to this one.

3) Expose himself as being a fraud.

JeffE on August 14, 2011 at 12:02 am

    My post was in response to Skunky on August 13, 2011 at 11:42 pm.

    JeffE on August 14, 2011 at 12:03 am

Dear Debbie, Thank you for bringing the facts about Perry
to our attention, the regular press does not tell us these
facts. Keep up you great work!!

Dinah on August 14, 2011 at 2:14 am

I thought that Perry was the best candidate, with his strong support of Israel, winning the Defender of Jerusalem Award in 2009, push to divest from companies doing business with Iran, and Texas’s strong economic record. But now unsettling facts are being revealed about Muslim connections and advocacy, the AFS religious views that the First Amendment freedom of religion applies only to Christians, and favoring cronies with Texas largess in the guise of “business development.”

There is still plenty of time and the “skeletons” should be thoroughly aired before a primary vote in my state of NY, and the Republican convention. In the meantime I feel let down with first Christie and now Perry. The arguably most electable Republicans are falling by the wayside.

Len on August 14, 2011 at 2:56 am

    Electable according to whom? State and federal offices have key differences. Governors don’t decide foreign policy or make appointments to federals offices. Presidents do. And bad policies can be more easily reversed at the state level or they won’t spread to other states. Its very difficult to reverse bad federal policies once they get adopted since they seem to take on a life of their own. That’s why a presidential candidate’s views on Islam matter a great deal. In short, electability may be a consideration in American politics but principles are critical. If they are not the right principles, a President is not going to govern the country wisely or justly.

    NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 3:28 am

This is the most absurd conversation here ever. I am still doing my homework on Perry and the other candidates and there are still some debates ahead…but to disqualify a guy because he has among his supporters Muslims.
This is whats wrong with the right wing Jews and Muslims in this country…all you nuts care about is what occurs over seas. Almost no one in the previous 37 comments has stated anything about his position on the economy, immigration, entitlement reform etc….
An American president works for AMERICA….NOT ISREAL nor PALESTINE.
As long as AIPAC/CAIR are both caring only what happens over seas and not voting for a person based on what they are going to do for America then you are screwing over this county. If you love Israel or Palestine so much PLEASE move back there and let those of us who want to get this country back on track vote on the issues effecting us….not two groups of people thousands of miles away in a desert.

George A. on August 14, 2011 at 7:38 am

    @George A. on August 14, 2011 at 7:38 am

    Hellooooooooooooo! Islam is a worldwide problem not just Israel’s. That includes the USofA. You already forget what happened on 9/11/2001? We need a president that takes the threat of islam as seriously as the “economy, immigration, entitlement reform etc….” unlike the many yahoos who occupied the office in the past. And we definitely need to stop foreign influences like OPEC from running our politics.

    theShadow on August 14, 2011 at 11:27 pm

    Perry is all talk when it comes to immigration. Then Bob Perry (No relation), the owner of Perry homes, and the owner of HEB grocery stores cry that getting tough on illegals would be bad for America (ie their businesses) Perry backs ups. He is all talk but no substance. How he remains the Governor of Texas is a wonderment.

    WilliamMunny on August 15, 2011 at 8:51 am

    Again, it has nothing to do with the Jews or Israel. If you took the time to read Debbie’s post, she already explained why she didn’t bring it up. The danger Islam represents is to America, its form of government, our freedoms and our way of life. That is what we need a President to address. People mistakenly think its not an American issue. And the fact they are already here and more of them are coming to these shores shows that a number of them are willing to hurt and kill Americans. We ignore it to our peril.

    NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 2:52 am

I have been a Debbie fan for a long time, reading her columns, giving her and Robert Spencer credit for providing us with news and information the lamestream media refuses to print.

But come on; But just to be fair, I went to the article and read it. was pretty vague in the claims it was trying to make. I don’t want innuendos, and nobody should, but when a far left publication starts smearing a GOP presidential candidate, I have to wonder why. And of course, it was picked up by publications like the Houston Chronicle, which has never steered very far from its Fabian socialist roots and is one of the most left wing publications in Texas.

I also notice a few “I live in Texas” comments here, bashing Governor Perry. Austin? Really? Is there a conservative living in Travis County or did they all move out to Williamson County to get away from the liberalist that is rampant in Austin? Tell me again how wide the margin was in Austin voting for the far left Bill White.

So yesterday, Governor Perry said that we must stand with our allies in the Middle East. Oh, wait, that’s not what he said. He said we have to stand with Israel. I guess that endeared him to all those CAIR types.

Maybe Debbie can do some research in how Governor Perry involved himself in the mosque fight in Katy, Texas? Or what part he played during the Holyland Foundation trials in Dallas? Did he in anyway try to back those CAIR types, or refuse to allow the Texas DPS to cooperate with the feds?

So one article, written by a far left website, disallows a candidate? If that is the case, with the Obama campaign not able to run on Obama’s acheivements and adopting a “kill Romney” game plan, by the time the election rolls around, we conservatives will have no one to vote for.

One other thing: yeah, the Texas Department of Agriculture has a program, part of its Go-Texan department, that labels halal foods as such. It also labels kosher foods due to the huge Jewish community in Houston (check out the Jewish Community Center/Houston, one of the largest in the nation).

I firmly believe that radical Islam is the greatest threat we now face, not just in the U.S., but in all of western society. But to base an opinion of a GOP candidate on one article from a far left publication is flat out wrong. I guess the “Muslim” smear is now going to be played like the old “race” card. Disappointing.

CTP: Wow, what a liar and a fool you are. That there is kosher food in Texas is really your talking point here? Really???? What does that have to do with the price of tea in China here? Are you really that stupid?

In fact, you are not a fan, don’t read this site, and you’ve never left a comment on this site in your life before your mindless, failed attempt to defend your boss, Rick Perry on whose campaign you are apparently working (if he’s not paying you to work for him, then you are apparently even more of a fool). You are a liar who came here to spew the Perry talking points (and clearly doesn’t know the truth about fraud and plagiarist Slobbert Spencer, which you’d know if you actually were a fan of this site). A bigger fact: you cannot read. RIF–Reading Is Fundamental. There isn’t “just one” article from Salon. There are three items: a Houston Chronicle article, an e-mail from HAMAS’ CAIR urging members to support Rick Perry, and the Salon article. Unless you can refute a single fact here–and you cannot (and can’t read, either)–stop lying. So you have no problem with Perry putting pro-Muslim education into the Texas public schools? Or that HAMAS’ US branch is urging its members to support Perry? And that is a “smear” how . . . ? Can you provide proof that these absolute facts aren’t true? Of course not, because you know they are and the Perry people who put you up to this don’t have a response.

Israel was never mentioned in this post . . . for a reason. I couldn’t care less that Rick Perry paid lip service to Israel (just like Jimmy Carter, both Bushes, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama did–anyone who believed any of them is as much of a gullible idiot as you are). I care about AMERICA! I don’t want Muslim education in our public schools or a candidate HAMAS’ CAIR has its hooks into. Apparently, you don’t care much about American soil and what is going on here, and you are a partisan Pavlov’s dog with zero critical thinking skills.

The Islamic threat on U.S. soil has nothing to do with Israel or kosher food. It’s about a threat to America–to EVERYONE! Including dumbasses like you.

You are a moron and an ignoramus. Do us all a favor: PLEASE. DON’T VOTE. The only smear here is your moronic, ignorant comment. An elementary school course in reading and reading comprehension and a stronger eye glass prescription (plus a brain transplant) are in order for you. DS

CenTexPatiot on August 14, 2011 at 9:19 am

    C’mon CenTex…you almost get it and then you go wobbly.

    YES, you are right about your reservations about That dopey website is far left, but in your research you should always ask yourself (even if it’s coming from a Lefty source) if what they are publishing is the truth. You were able to see that they are inept inasmuch as they are elusive in their reportage (a good red-flag…and most Lefties are sneaky in what they report) but you have to admit they are at least on to the STINK of Perry. And on this blog, DS gets to the heart of the stink. That’s why this site is so valuable.

    Let me use Darrell Issa as an example. Uninformed Conservatives think that Jihad Darrell is the bees knees. HARDLY, and we have DS to think for being the SOLE exposer of that fraud. If you google-search Issa, you will see that DS is they only strong exposer of Jihad Darrel BUT a lefty article a few years back by New York (or The New Yorker) has a very intriguing article that starts to get their nose into the stink of Jihad Darrell. They are the Left, but in this article, they expose his shady past (and merely mention in passing his Syrian Jones) very deeply. And they are RIGHT. The may be Lefty, but in this case they provided a better article than anyone else but DS has (and YES, it is because he’s supposedly an evil REPUBLICAN…but the info that they expose is also vital to true CONSERVATIVES as well!!!!)

    Don’t get lost in the weeds and for goodness sake, don’t be like those fools on Hotair. Those dummies pride themselves as great Conservatives and anti-Liberal BUT if you point out the fraud FoxNews (PAWNN), they dismiss you as Liberal and dumb. The truth is, the joke is on THEM!

    Skunky on August 14, 2011 at 11:17 am


    If CAIR is actively supporting Perry, can their 501(c)(3) status be challenged?

    There is NO Santa Claus on August 15, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    Its not just a Jewish problem – or Israel’s problem. The threat from Islam is America’s problem. People need to face up to that and we need a President who protect us first. Debbie is first and foremost an American patriot. Its possible to be both pro-Israel and pro-Islam but when push comes to shove, its not only Israel that gets sold out, America is endangered in the bargain. If CAIR likes Perry, the bottom line is, I don’t want him for President and I don’t want him in the White House. That should be simple enough for every one who reads my post to comprehend.

    People need to wake the heck up!

    NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 1:14 am

    She does have a point about your quoting him. Besides, when he took her off his web blogroll, he showed he could care less about respecting someone who has done hard and original work on Islam. That work by Debbie should be respected. Its why I didn’t link to her enemies and I told her I have no desire to send them traffic. And that’s why she responded so strongly to your post – as she did to me. In the future, let’s all abide by her wishes, regardless of what we think of people she doesn’t care for. Its after all her site.

    NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 2:40 am

How disappointing!

David on August 14, 2011 at 10:27 am

There is a lot of disinformation included among the posts here. Mindless attacking of Debbie and defense of Perry by individuals who either don’t have reading comprehension skills or hope that other readers don’t have these skills.

But maybe there is hope. Pawlenty was the worst of these disingenuous attackers during the debate, and he dropped out two and a half days later, the morning after he said he was continuing because of all the positive trends he saw. So maybe truth and integrity in writing will prevail after all. And Pawlenty can support Perry/Romney openly instead of just being a stealth stalking hores for them.

Little Al on August 14, 2011 at 11:33 am

    Little Al, I am happy “T. Blah” quit. He was a bore and exposed himself as a fool during the last debate. (I have no clue what his strategy was but it clearly did not work as he is out now).

    I’m interested myself in following your point on him perhaps being a Romney/Perry stalking horse. I know it was put out there that Bachmann could possibly be a Romney stalking horse…but I have so far been inconclusive on that since it seemed more probable a few months back then now.

    I’m now interested in how Bachmann’s strength and now winning of the straw-poll will do to Sarah Palin’s possibility of running? I admit I have yet to delve into that but how interesting…and I’m saying that because I believe Palin and Bachmann are not tight “sista-friends” and I wonder how Bachmann’s winning of the Iowa straw-poll puts a ding in Palin’s possible run? (I’m interested in the dynamics and not as a supporter of either).

    Skunky on August 14, 2011 at 12:28 pm

Oh, but folks this is only the beginning!

Bob Porrazzo on August 14, 2011 at 11:48 am

    Bob, that link was a nice aggregate of why Perry is a fraud.

    And I also want to point out that they did very well BUT are re-miss in any Islamo-pandering on his part.

    That is why THIS BLOG is so important to us. It’s a perfect example of how Conservatives get it, but then drop the ball when it comes to Islam. DS picks off where they get lazy or too PC. She stands above the rest.

    And I appreciate that!!!!

    Skunky on August 14, 2011 at 1:02 pm

P.S. What I wrote in my post here on August 13, 2011 at 9:48 pm still stands.

JeffE on August 14, 2011 at 12:03 pm

Thank you, Skunky.

I remember CenTex making reference to Robert (Slobbert)Spencer, though on my re-reading his post after Debbie got through ripping his post to shreads that reference is now erased, because, like you said and as I have seen here, Debbie has indeed exposed him (Spencer) as a fraud. Both you and Debbie are exactly correct about CenTexPatiot.

As for George A., you are exactly correct about him. In fact, what Debbie wrote to CenTax in the paragraph beginning with “Israel was never mentioned in this post . . . for a reason. …” also applies to George A. as well.

JeffE on August 14, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    Darn it. I violated the RIF rule. The Spencer reference is still there.

    JeffE on August 14, 2011 at 12:52 pm

      The questions about Perry aren’t going to go away and with his record, they deserve to be addressed. Multiculturalism as a governor isn’t a concern since governors have to deal with all kinds of people in their state. But when someone runs for President, its a whole different ball game. And a President has to put America first, not this or that group of people who gives him their support. And no one is sure Perry understand its or people who support him do.

      NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 1:19 am

        If he supports Islamic history education in Texas, that’s bad enough but a bad multicultural experiment in one state won’t harm the country. But a President with pro-Islamic views can undermine this country’s identity and security. Then his views become every one’s business. If Perry decided to remain Governor, his ties to CAIR would be of historical interest. But since he’s now a declared presidential candidate, that really matters to America’s future. And its a significant difference.

        NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 1:32 am

      So did I. Debbie wrote me and I think she wrote to you too on this very subject. We didn’t link to them but let’s respect her wishes and not mention them again. That is all I want to say. This is her site and she has the right to run it as she sees fit.

      NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 2:28 am

        Hi, NormanF,

        Concerning your 2:28 am post, I’m presumably that you are talking to me in response to my 12:27 am post that can no longer be seen. If so, then yes, Debbie and I talked last night by email. And you are correct in saying that “This is her site and she has the right to run it as she sees fit.”

        JeffE on August 16, 2011 at 8:41 am

All I need add is this: Remember the “G-Dubya.”

Debi Brand on August 14, 2011 at 1:43 pm

Skunky, I hope Palin won’t run. She is completely outclassed by Bachmann. Palin folded under hostile questions, and Bachmann handled them well, turning them around, e.g. about her being a “flake” and being submissive towards her husband.

Hopefully, when push comes to shove, Bachmann will be willing to attack Perry and Romney head-on.

Little Al on August 14, 2011 at 2:10 pm

>>I also notice a few “I live in Texas” comments here, bashing Governor Perry. Austin? Really? Is there a conservative living in Travis County or did they all move out to Williamson County to get away from the liberalist that is rampant in Austin? Tell me again how wide the margin was in Austin voting for the far left Bill White.<<

FYI, I live almost exactly on the Travis County/Williamson County line. Why does that matter to you, CenTexPatiot?

Rick Perry is terrible news for Republicans/Conservatives (under whose banner he's now running) and for America. Supposedly, Karl Rove helped Perry switch from Democrat to Republican and Rove has been very active behind Perry for many years. For what it's worth, Alex Jones (who also lives in Austin) has called Perry the most duplicitous politician he's ever seen. Jones is running a "14 Reasons Why Rick Perry Would Be A Really, Really Bad President" piece on his website.

America needs an authentic tea party-type who can speak from the heart to control reckless federal spending and to regain our liberties.

Rick Perry is a politician, in every bad sense that's come to mean.

CenTexPatiot, do what you want.

America should want someone better.

Barry Popik on August 14, 2011 at 8:18 pm

Dear Debbie:

Independent of anything you said in your column (I’ll read it later) I can tell you from my personal experience that Gov. Perry is a card-carrying member of the Saudi Petrochemical Lobby.

His lobbying against ethanol on behalf of “chicken farmers” was a joke. Say what you want about the subject, but ethanol is an American-made automotive fuel; one that employs American workers. Moreover, chicken farmers benefit from ethanol production because the throw-away portion of the corn is useful as chicken and cattle feed. Thus, all the extra corn being grown for ethanol BENEFITS cattle farmers especially since 90% of all corn grown in America is for cattle feed; not digestible by humans.

I wrote about this three years ago here:

I know I’ll get all kinds of responses arguing against the merits of alcohol fuels (of which ethanol is just one) but Perry’s intervention against alcohol fuels was such an obvious act of slavery to OPEC that all the other details were irrelevant.

So you say Perry is a tool of CAIR et al. What a surprise!

Show me someone who is against American made alcohol fuels for cars and I’ll show you a card-carrying member of the Saudi Petrochemical Lobby.

There is NO Santa Claus on August 14, 2011 at 9:00 pm

Thanks for the heads-up, Deb, we wouldn’t have found this anywhere else…

Not Ovenready on August 14, 2011 at 10:38 pm

this is disappointing…I thought there might be some hope with someone who could raise the $$ to go against Obama;now we are left with Romney&Bachmann and at this point I don’t know if Bachmann can out fund Romney but I hope she can. Otherwise,I’m still waiting it out&hoping someone like Allen West joins the 2012 race, or is there something I don’t know about him I should?

@freedom4usa on August 14, 2011 at 11:18 pm

Connected: Perry’s illegal immigrant pandering that has Hezbolloh on our Southern border. He’s WEAK on illegal immigration!!

FactsRule on August 15, 2011 at 12:51 am

u know this is the most anti american wabsite i have seen. debbie you are one of the most anti american person i know, the forefathers would be turning in their graves if they read what you write. i am a christain and i don’t know what religion you and the people that support you are but its definitely not christain. jesus preached a message about love and your anti islamic rants is you just stooping down to the level of hideous islamic extremists. jesus when he was on the cross crucified by his own people and by the same people he had shown miracles to said father forgive them for they no not what they do, and he tells us to do the same. so this website is anti american because the constitution gives freedom of religion, and this website is anti-christain as well.

sensible person on August 15, 2011 at 1:14 am

    Sensible “Muslim,”

    You are a “Christain” [sic]? You sound more like a Muslim “American” who went to a ghetto school.

    JM on August 15, 2011 at 10:12 am

    Sensible Person/Sensible Islamist,

    This website is 100% pro-American you putz, you haven’t been here long enough, let alone, you’ve NEVER commented on this blog before? Islam is a threat to our way of life in this country, why you don’t recognize it is beyond me. And more and more muslims must stand up and denounce what islam/mohammadism really is.

    And since you claim that this blog is “anti-american”, what the hell are you friggin demanding, that this wesbite must be shut down and closed? Face it, this blog and Debbie Schlussel will remain here and you CANNOT shut nobody or silence anybody in this country buster just because you happen to disagree with another persons point of view! That’s why we have this amendment called “the first amendment”, it is to protect freedom of speech in general, and let me tell you something Sensible Yadda Yadda, the first amendment is to protect speech that you find offensive, hateful, vile, disgusting, etc. We DON’T need any type of amendment is the constitution to protect speech you enjoy hearing and reading.

    BTW, our founding fathers would very proud of Ms. Schlussel for exercising and taking advantage of her fundamental constitutional rights. Our founding fathers would be ashamed and disgusted in you for saying something like that about the lady.

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on August 15, 2011 at 11:49 am

    It has nothing to do with the peaceable exercise of religion. It has to do with people who have no loyalty to America. We’re not talking about people who peacefully worship G-d according to their conscience. We’re talking about the political use of religion to justify destroying America and its cherished freedoms. That is what Islam today represents. This is what is behind jihad. No one is saying people can’t have different beliefs. What we’re saying people who have beliefs that compel them to harm Americans shouldn’t be allowed in this country or if they are citizens, they should be prosecuted and punished to the full extent of the law. And if Muslims act on those beliefs, we have an obligation to protect this country and every one else in it from them.

    NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 1:25 am

so to all get yourselves into a 24/7 house of prayer in your home place! thing on things above and inquire of the only Creator!stay true to the truth and get out of the “personality” cult; move into the light ; make your voice more heard as the power of the Living One’s echos with the truth in your hearts being renewed by His Hand of Grace; for righteousness and truth will prevail;Awake awake oh sleeper and let the light of the Anointed One shine on you. Continue on Debbie

Joey on August 15, 2011 at 12:13 pm

you all are hypocrites. you say that you are christian but please tell me how these articles embody the spirit of Christ. i never said this website should be deleted, i am practicing my constitutional right by writing what i think about this hypocritical website that hides behind religion to putout it’s ignorant views. i don’t support Muslims i think they should convert to Christ who provides them with peace and life, but we should not discriminate against them because of 9/11. Jesus preached on love and forgiveness, if you show me a scripture in the bible that supports what you’ll say i will revoke every single thing i have written but since that day will never come i hold my position that this website just aids to ignorance.

sensible person on August 15, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    Cap’n “Sensible”, thanks for posting your opinion.

    My opinion of your opinion is that you are naive and silly. In 2011, I have no time for dhimmis like you.

    Please consider me a person who will not be on your side. And I couldn’t give a toss if you don’t like it. I’m not changing for your stupid and silly views.

    Have fun on your side. Thank goodness Jesus gave me a brain!

    Skunky on August 15, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    I don’t agree with you. Debbie has pretty strong views that I happen to share but its not bigotry or intolerance to point out Islam is far from being a peaceful religion. And I don’t much care for your beliefs about converting others. I want the freedom to worship G-d as I see fit and neither Christian missionaries nor Islam respects that freedom. Telling the truth is a sign of respect for civilization and not committing an offense against it.

    NormanF on August 16, 2011 at 2:34 am

Debbie, you might like this detailed update on Rick Perry’s surprising ties to islam and why Rick needs to spend time reading detailed findings by his fellow evangelicals on how little girls are treated in islam, before he tries to indoctrinate our little girls on how great islam is supposed to be:

Anthony on August 15, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Got that right, Anthony.

I don’t know how his Christian faith can be verified. Take him at his word. But there is a saying in Christianity that might describe Mr. Perry, which is, ‘a wolf in sheep’s clothing.’ We must be smarter when examining candidates, we just have to be.

CornCoLeo on August 15, 2011 at 8:44 pm

What’s the matter, “sensible person” ?

Doing some research to try to prove your point and you can’t find any?

Well, you are taking too long so I decided to provide an example to disprove your claim that DS is somehow anti-American.

Maybe this will prove to you that she’s a strong patriotic American:

JeffE on August 15, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    I still don’t see a response from you, “sensible person”.

    Well, in case my example from my 10:34 pm post wasn’t enough to convince you,–well, well,–right here in this thread Debbie said something to CenTexPatiot in response to his or her post on August 14, 2011 at 9:19 am:

    “I care about AMERICA! I don’t want Muslim education in our public schools or a candidate HAMAS’ CAIR has its hooks into.”

    Oh wait, let me guess–you’ll say (based on what you said in one of your earlier posts) our Founding Fathers’ would roll over in our grave upon seeing Debbie talk like that? Well, Thomas Jefferson–among others–would disagree with you on that.

    JeffE on August 15, 2011 at 11:34 pm


Hate to break it to you but you couln’t be more wrong here. I’m from Texas and followed Perry during his governour campaign and trust me he is tough on islam. Simply youtube Perry on islam.

Ken on August 15, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Ken, since you claim that you’re from Texas are you currently working for Rick Perry? If you’re working the guy, how much money is he paying you to come onto this blog and shill for him?

    If Rick Perry is tough against islam, then why did CAIR-Texas forwarded him an email last week and claim that they love Mr. Perry! So what if a left wing website broke the story before DS, but facts are still facts. If your on the left politically, you can be right at times, if your on the right politically, you can be wrong at times. I’m sorry Ken, but Debbie doesn’t do this phrase of “the right-wing is right all the time, and the left-wing is wrong all the time”, and DS is as conservative as they come, so now you’re going to call the lady a liberal all of a sudden because posted this story here on her blog?

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on August 15, 2011 at 11:54 pm

Debbie, your dedication to the truth and your commitment to what is right and just as an American, a journalist and of course, a moral person, is a breath of fresh air. I was so excited to see Rick Perry enter the race, but for naught. Your expose puts a nail (Again!) in the hope that a Republican can make a difference to keep America’s moral compass in the right direction. Thank you, Debbie for all the good hard work you do. It is appreciated!
P.S. Your movie reviews rock!
