'Hate speech creates a clear and present danger'


Keith Ellison

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., said in a tweet he is asking the Justice Department to launch an investigation about the legalities of a protest at a Phoenix mosque that included the participation of gun-carrying activists.

But as some social media posters were quick to point out: Investigate them for what – legally protesting?

Ellison in a tweet wrote: “@RepAndreCarson and I are asking the Obama Administration to investigate the armed rally at Phoenix mosque.”

A couple Twitter users were quick to comment.

“Investigate what? The counter-protest already took care of that problem. Free speech does its own plumbing,” wrote one.

And another: “Investigate them for legally protesting?”


The protest Ellison was referring to occurred at the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix in late May, held in part to show solidarity with the “Draw Muhammad” contest in Texas. Approximately 250 protesters carrying American flags and depictions of the Prophet Muhammad assembled outside of the mosque that had previously been attended by the two gunmen from Phoenix who opened gunfire on the “Draw Muhammad” event. Various media outlets described the protest as heated to the point where police had to physically separate Muslims and rally participants, some of whom were armed.

Protest organizers, however, said the First Amendment guarantees them the right to rally, and police at the scene didn’t dispute that fact. Still, Ellison and Carson wrote to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and asked for intervention.

They wrote, Twitchy reported: “These demonstrators argue that they are exercising their First Amendment rights. What they fail to understand is that First Amendment rights are not absolute: they are limited to protect the safety and rights of others.”

One big problem with the protest is that some participants carried weapons, they wrote.

“The presence of assault weapons coupled with deep seeded bigotry and hate speech creates a clear and present danger to worshippers and threatens lawless action,” the letter stated. “The activity of these armed anti-Muslim demonstrators comes at a time when anti-Muslim hate crimes are on the rise. As anti-Muslim violence and bigotry sweep across the country, we must do everything we can to prevent further tragedy and discrimination.”

Ellison, from Minnesota, was the first Muslim elected to the House of Representatives.

Here's an idea Rep. Ellison, learn a little more about our constitution before opening your mouth.

I have no doubt that every mosk in the nation has you on speed dial for situations such as these.

If protesting offends you and the Muslims attending these mosk, get over it or move to a country that follows your Sharia B.S.

Why would you build a mosk here other than to have a safe haven to preach Sharia. Well guess what, we are on to you and your little infiltration game. Don't expect it to get any easier, why would anyone with common since trust a religion that condones what is going on around the world in the name of your religion.

Dang Straight!

Hey we need to do what the British did when they fought these savages, when you kill one you rap him in Pig Skin throw him or she in a hole and just pore a little Pig blood on it that seemed to quite things down, now I'm not sure if this is fact or fiction but it sounds very effective !

Do we not see a coalition with Muslims and Communists? My idea is to find a video of the beheading of children and take a still photo! Then have this blown up and placed on posters! We still have freedom of speech for now and let the facts with photos tell the story. What would those Muslims at this Mosque do then? Make them take sides to show their true support of butchery!

Excellent reply. I second it

If the SOB muslim commie IDIOTS think about who it was that went to Texas and open fire then I would say the legally carried weapons were a good choice.   Theyneed to listen to the crap coming out of the muslims mouths around the country and world and go after them if they want to be respected here.  Thay need to become Americans not try to change America to become what they left.  Ship them all back to Iran beginning with the 2 SOB's in congress that think something needs to be done.  Oh yeah and send sharpton with them.

Please send Sharpton as a parting gift.

Add these to the list too:

muslim bros in the whitehouse


First of all, what idiot voters put a known muslim in office?!! The idiots that voted for obummer did not know he was a muslim in disguise. Secondly,carrying weapons in a state where it is legal to do so poses no threat of danger while protesting. This muslim jerk is using jihadist tactics to get want he (they) want in our country....dismantle our rights,liberties and Constitution!

Idiot voters----We must all vote in-order to rid America of traitors like Keith U TERRORIST ENABLER-VOTE ALL MUST VOTE-God save America.

Minnesota has the largest concentration of Muslims in the USA. I guess they don't realize that the 1st amendment not only protects their right to be Muslims, it also protects protesters against their religion.

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?
