DumbAssity of the Day: Hillary Clinton Lifts Visa Ban on Islamic Terrorist “Scholars”

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s bad enough that the State Department issued a two-year visa to Northewst Flight 253 terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and then Hillary Clinton failed to revoke it when his father told officials in her (and our) embassy in Nigeria that his son was a terrorist.  Hillary got away with that.  And Barack Obama took little, if any, blame.


Hillary Admits Muslim Brotherhood Grandson, Tariq Ramadan

Now he and Hillary are lifting the ban on extremist Muslim “scholars” who openly support and endorse Islamic terrorism, including Tariq Ramadan, whose grandfather, Hassan El-Banna, founded the Muslim Brotherhood (the mother organization to HAMAS, Yasser Arafat, Al-Qaeda, and Al-Qaeda mastermind Ayman Al-Zawahiri).  This is the group that masterminded the assassination of Anwar Sadat and the shooting murders of tourists in the massacre at the Temples at Luxor.  Ramadan is an open supporter of HAMAS–to which he donated $1,336–and other Islamic terrorist groups.  Plus, Ramadan worked for Iran!

Hellooooo . . . ? Did they learn NOTHING from Abdulmutallab’s near-murder of 300 American passengers over U.S. soil?   Yes, apparently they did learn nothing. Un-frickin’-believable:

The State Department has cleared the way for two prominent but controversial scholars to return to the United States.

State Department spokesman Darby Holladay said Wednesday that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has signed orders enabling the scholars’ entry if they obtain visas.

The professors are Tariq Ramadan of Oxford University and Adam Habib of the University of Johannesburg.

Holladay said Clinton decided to use her exemption authority for the benefit of the professors.

“For the benefit of the professors”? What about the benefit of America’s national security? Did she bother to think of that, after she already screwed up monumentally in the case of Abdulmutallab?  The government said, previously, that Habib “engaged in terrorist activity.”

The American Civil Liberties Union said it expects the scholars will now get visas within weeks of requesting them.

In an ACLU statement, Habib called it a personal victory and also a victory “for democracy around the world.”

Figures they’re involved. Keep in mind that Hillary didn’t make this decision on her own. This is a joint Obama-Clinton venture into DumbAssity (a word I coined and which fits like a glove here and, sadly, so many other instances in this administration). It’s a “gesture” (as if we need more of them) of “outreach” to the extremist Muslim world. Disgusting.

In August, a Dutch university, Erasmus University, fired Ramadan over his extremism and  his work for the Islamic Republic of Iran.  Why didn’t we get the hint from the Dutch?  The Wall Street Journal got it right:

We’d certainly agree that working for the Islamic Republic doesn’t become a supposedly moderate “integration adviser” who was tasked with bridging the divide between Rotterdam’s Muslim and non-Muslim communities. . . .

Mr. Ramadan . . . likes to talk about democracy and following the rule of law—but only as long as the law doesn’t contradict an Islamic principle. He rejects terrorism and violence but thinks that blowing up eight-year-old Israeli children is “contextually explicable.” He supposedly stands for a modern Islam, but he refused to reject the stoning of adulterers when then-interior minister and future French President Nicolas Sarkozy challenged him on the subject in a 2003 TV debate. All Mr. Ramadan could bring himself to say was to call for a “moratorium” on the practice.

Yeah, we really need more of that poison in America. The cancer continues. If Ramadan is a “religious scholar,” so is Charles Manson, and he should be released from prison immediately.

This isn’t just DumbAssity. It’s Super Double Secret Probation DumbAssity. America . . . Desperate But Not Serious in the War Against Islamic Extremism and Terrorism.

I pray they keep this up. Things like this are one of the many reasons Scott Brown got elected in MA.

Maybe Odopey lifted the ban on these terrorists because he needs a new spiritual mentor now that he does not have Rev. Wright telling him how bad America is.

Two Middle Eastern mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a plate of tabouli and a pint of goat’s milk. The older of the mothers pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping through photos. And they start reminiscing.
“This is my oldest son Mohammed. He would be 24 years old now.”
“Yes, I remember him as a baby.” says the other mother cheerfully.
“He’s a martyr now though.” mum confides.
“Oh, so sad dear.” says the other.
“And this is my second son Kalid. He would be 21.”
“Oh, I remember him,” says the other happily, “he had such curly hair when he was born”.
“He’s a martyr too,” says mum quietly.
“Oh, gracious me.” says the other.
“And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Achmed. He would be 18,” she whispers.
“Yes” says the friend enthusiastically, “I remember when he first started school.”
“He’s a martyr also,” says mum, with tears in her eyes.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photographs and says…
“They blow up so fast, don’t they?”

    Groan !!! Groan !!!

    That was good VinceG, thanks for adding that. I will have to post it on my sites.

I believe that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s visa was issued in 2008, so O’l Condo’s State Department deserves at least some of the rap. However, when that man’s father reported him to consular officials, as well as the CIA, the visa should have been revoked. Hillary should have taken some heat on this, as well as the parties who failed to properly use the information they were given.

Of course, President Obama, despite having been kicked and spit upon by such people, still panders to Islamists. Tariq Ramadan is not an academic, but an apologist for terror. When a Dutch university kicks out an Islamist for their views, you can be pretty sure that it was over a foot bath.

In related news, Mike Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City, just gave a State of the City Address and in it said “the city will launch a public-private partnership with law firms and other groups to give Haitian New Yorkers help in applying for temporary protected status.” according to NY1 News.
And they need protective status from what and why exactly?

Bob on January 20, 2010 at 2:54 pm

All part of that Muslim “outreach” program. Not that a year of that nonsense has brought any results. I agree. Un-freakin’-believable!

Raymond in DC on January 20, 2010 at 2:58 pm

Hardly surprising. America needs agents of Islam like it needs…. well these people will be free to lecture about the benefits of jihad and dhimmitude on our soil. America – not serious about fighting Islamic terrorism.

NormanF on January 20, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Hope and change working so far?

Joe on January 20, 2010 at 3:08 pm

Why did Sec State Clinton do this?
The check cleared.

Douglas Q on January 20, 2010 at 3:08 pm

Meanwhile, back on Planet Sanity, I have a roster of friends from Israel (and other places outside the US) who are NON-murdering, NON-jihadi, intelligent, productive, law-abiding citizens of the world who couldn’t get a green card or extend their visas if their lives depended on it. Brilliant.

NotGoingToTakeItAnymore on January 20, 2010 at 3:38 pm

When the U.S. Government sides with Muslim Terrorists, instead of siding with The American People. And when the U.S. Government supports and funds Muslim Terrorism and are more concerned with their rights, then they are concerned with the Safety & Security of The American People, then the U.S. Government has become the Enemy of The American People.

HEY! Hill!

Don’t you have a presidential campaign to run for 2012?

Don’t you lie to me: You are running. And, we hope to keep you in the race as long as possible… for a laugh.

goldenmike4393 on January 20, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    gm4393 – you’ve got that right. Let Hill and BHO and whoever else fight it out for a long time. At least now with BHO being President for a year, there is lots of ammo to fight him with.

    Jarhead on January 20, 2010 at 5:17 pm

Western governments have been doing these types of things for years, and except for Joe McCarthy and his colleagues in the 50s, there has never been any serius outcry against these actions. I agree with Bob — this is part of the reason Sen. Brown got elected. Although I tend to be pessimistic by nature, maybe this movement will grow and become really focussed on ending these despicable actions.

Little Al on January 20, 2010 at 5:48 pm

Why would anyone think the Clinton-ista’s would stop now? On their watch in 1992 the MB got fully entrenched in the US Government, the US military, the White House, the FBI, the FAA, the US Treasury, the IRS, the STATE DEPARTMENT and on and on… doesn’t anyone remember the 6th of December? It took some doing – though half-hearted – to sweep the terrrorist crap out, and now it’s back in. The answer is obvious.

I might remind ppl right now that the White House GATE CRASHERS are of the same lineage, and in China they would have been taken out and shot, for what they tried to pull off on Thanksgiving 2009.

I might remind ppl that the anniversary of WTC1 is coming up. If ANYTHING happens on that day, these ppl should given the Gitmo treatment. I’d say do it now but Liberals-fascists are in charge.

NEVER FORGET what Taqiyaa is to a terrorist like the SALAHI’S,who invoked the Fifth today, as their lawyer said they would. Everyone forgets what the Wahabbi’s did to their own in 1925.

DiamondRing on January 20, 2010 at 7:35 pm

As for BARRY SOETORO or Barrack Hussein Obama – put this in your pipe and smoke it: resources for the OKC 95 came from the MB in Indonesia. And if you don’t believe me, question the “Treasury” spokesperson for OKC 95. Not the one from this admin, of course, duh.

DiamondRing on January 20, 2010 at 7:44 pm

I was raised to believe that Joe McCarthy was a right bastard. I’m beginning to question whether that position is correct.

Richard on January 20, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    McCarthy’s fears were correct, but the methods he chose were wrong for the time and backfired. The legacy? I guaranadamtee you by end of this Oval’s reign of terror we’ll see ppl taken out back and shot. It’s coming, freedom is coming to the USA, the way freedom has always come. First they’ll come for those who speak out…

    DiamondRing on January 20, 2010 at 8:00 pm

As for the Fifth: we have the CHIEF TERRORIST’s TELEPROMPTER as a sitting “President” in the Oval. If he keeps failing his “runners / handlers” – what are they gonna do? Michelle dahlin’, puh-leeeeze don’t YOU be wearing any red sari’s! You have this “penchant”, not gullibility, not naivete, but the saddest of ambition, so can be easily played, and so you could be the weakest link. Right? OK.

DiamondRing on January 20, 2010 at 7:53 pm

I suggest reading the book Blacklisted by History by Stanton Evans. It is an analysis of Joe McCarthy’s political career by a sympathetic journalist and author who graduated from Yale and has been a regular contributor to Human Events.

Evans has gotten into polemics about this book with other conservatives such as Ronald Radosh, and has more than held his own.

Most libraries either have this book or can obtain it easily on interlibrary loan.

To my knowledge, this sympathetic account of McCarthy which came out a couple of years ago has never been effectively refuted.

Little Al on January 20, 2010 at 8:55 pm

Has anyone figured out yet exactly how we can possibly prevail against what is essentially a DEATH CULT? It would be tough enough to fight Islam’s viral spread if those in power actually were actively fighting it. Under the existing circumstances where the Western World just keeps pandering and making excuses – -it just seems impossible and utterly hopeless. 🙁

Points for D. S. for posting the absolute, all-time, BEST EVER photo of the Hilldebeast that has ever been launched into cyberspace!!

I recall (this was decades ago) how some academics (these were *real* academics) were getting tired of illiterates running around with fake/phony/fraudulent PhDs. They were interested in establishing a black list (this would be “universities” granting so-called “degrees” but, in fact, entirely worthless pieces of paper called a “degree”.) This would be, for example, that Fatah Palestinian with the “doctorate” from a Soviet era “university” and who wrote his “PhD” on Holocaust Denial. These people should be stripped of their bogus, fraudulent degrees, and the “institutions” shut down.

The first “universities” I’d place on the list would be that idiocy from Egypt — that Islmist al-Azhar, Cairo. Next would be “Gaza U” — that bogus facility which is now “partnered” with the London School of Economics…(The LSE should also lose its credentialing ability, imo. the LSE also employs terrorist-supporting Islamists as “profs.”)

Again, shut down these places — stop the credentialing of terrorist supporters — and strip those who have obtained “degrees” of any and all of their credentials. Then, we wouldn’t have to worry about “professors” sullying the name of a (formerly) honorable profession.

obama is a muslim

his father was a muslim and they cannot leave the religion

Bob S. on January 21, 2010 at 12:01 am

Could these little ditty’s by Hilary be caused by way of loser’s remorse. Let’s track things like this – every time America wins one (Scott Brown) they throw a dart that will outrage us.
I hope our national security can handle all the outrage.
Great work Debbie

Rick on January 21, 2010 at 12:19 am

It’s painfully obvious that this administration and the previous one want terrorists in this country killing Americans. Their disdain for the freedoms this country stands for is amazing. Michelle O has to have people standing on the street with cow bells as she goes to the local organic market, she insists that the military and secret service are never in her line of site. Hillary was the same way, she hated the military and secret service who protected her sorry ass.
Bush imported hundreds of thousands of Muslims into this country while he was Pres, and Obama and his gang are continuting with that legacy.
Nothing will change until the terrorists attack Hollywood or Disney. Until then the rest of us are cannon fodder.

I am from Russia, and fully understand your indignation.
Last week a Muslim cut off the head to a poet who cursed Muslims for pissing on the graves of children in Beslan. Just to remind – it is a town where about 350 school-children were killed. And Muslim “pilgrims” (from Chechnya, naturally!) just pissed on the children’s graves.
This pissing occurred two years ago, and not a word in the mass media (tolerasty!!!), until these blood-sucking bed-bugs caught him last week and cut-off his head.
As to the Clintons, this “sweet couple” sold out you, people, to the bastards, just to be able to slurp from the Muslim trough. Look up the “donors” of the so-called Clinton Foundation.
