Saqib Ali and Khuram Zaman Want You to Know That I’ll Be in Annapolis Saturday

Posted on | October 28, 2011 | 33 Comments

There is no such thing as bad publicity:

In light of the recent report by the Center for American Progress, “Fear Incorporated: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America,” which exposed the $42.6 million industry that fuels the Islamophobia infrastructure in America, American Muslims have begun to challenge this grassroots movement by waging their own counter-grassroots movement. . . .
This national trend is being played out in Annapolis, Md., this weekend. On Oct. 29, the Maryland Conservative Action Network will host the Turning the Tides conference, and they are facing protest due to the involvement of Frank Gaffney and several other leading Islamophobic speakers. Former Maryland Delegate Saqib Ali, along with Khuram Zaman, a social media activist, are organizing a coalition to raise awareness about the event to Maryland residents. Zaman and Ali have partnered with Equality Maryland, CASA de Maryland, the Islamic Society of Annapolis, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in denouncing the Turning the Tides conference. . . .

Read the whole thing. I’m mentioned — or rather, denounced – in the context of my alleged hatred of “beaners” and “faggots,” the sarcasm of my mock-xenophobic humor during the 2010 World Cup tournament evidently not being appreciated by Ali and Zaman.

People who cite Little Green Footballs as a source are usually suffering from Humor Deficiency Syndrome, and efforts to provide them a clue (e.g., “Soccer May Be Gay, But  At Least It’s Not Canadian” ) are futile.

So let’s be grateful for the left-wing idiots providing free publicity for Saturday’s conference at the fabulous Doubletree Hotel in Annapolis. In addition to such famous personages as Lord Monckton, Frank Gaffney and WMAL radio’s Fred Grandy, the Maryland Conservative Action Network’s “Turning the Tides” Conference will feature a New Media panel, moderated by Jim Jamitis (Anthropocon), Jimmie Bise Jr. (Sundries Shack), Mark Kreslins and Joshua Lyons (The Forgotten Men) and . . . me, “an extremist right-wing blogger” according to HuffPo.

Annapolis, Maryland, is a historic and scenic location, about a 45-minute drive from Baltimore, less than an hour from Washington, D.C., two-and-half-hours from Philadelphia, etc. Saturday’s conference begins at 8 a.m., I speak at 2:45 p.m., and conference registration is $75. If you’re a regular reader who lives within driving distance, I hope to see you there.

And if you’re Saqib Ali and Khuram Zaman . . . OK, I resisted the temptation to make a joke there, but only because I’m saving the punchline for Saturday. Be there!

P.S.: I haven’t seen any of that “$42.6 million” that HuffPo says “fuels the Islamophobia infrastructure in America,” and I’ve got to rent a car and drive 175 miles round-trip. So please: Hit the freaking tip jar!

    Being denounced by the right people is always a good thing.
    PuffHoe has their facts wrong most of us don’t think “creeping sharia” is a secret, we just think not enough of the right people care.

    pho·bi·a: noun a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.

    If someone has declared that they want to kill you just because of the religion you do or do not profess and have proven to be willing to die to do so, it ain’t an irrational fear then is it?

    When Muslims slow the killing and cursing of Christians and Jews to a trickle of the truly insane, then and only then will I begin to think about trusting them.

    Until then …..

    Muslim immigration should be strictly limited to those whom are 1) highly educated and motivated and believe in secular government and 2) those who have put there necks on the line for our war effort. And even those applicants should consent to rigorous interviews.

    Actually, we only have “phobia” over those barbarians who declare their desire and intent to kill us – but it isn’t “phobia” in the psychological sense, more of an awareness, an instinctive alertness, a tingling “Spidey-sense” that something wicked this way comes, such as when a Democrat comes into the room.  But instead of the mere sickening sense of revulsion we feel for the spineless parasitic Democrats, the barbarians make the hairs stand up on the backs of our necks, and our thumbs move to our safeties.

    As stated by others, a phobia is an irrational fear, nothin’ irrational about  being cautious of people and groups whose self stated goals include killing or enslaving you. Here is what the co-founder of CAIR said IN HIS OWN WORDS about islam’s intentions for America:

    “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
    - Omar Ahmad, chairman and cofounder of CAIR – 1998

    Move along, nothing to see here…

    Highly educated doesn’t necessarily cut it either. Some of the biggest terrorists are educated scientists and doctors. A good rule of thumb is keep their asses out of here, period.

    Please take more time to compose yourself.  You have a serious pronoun/noun disagreement!  First, you stated, If someone declared….” and then you stated,”Muslims slow the killing and cursing….”  Wait, now….someone does not equate to ALL MUSLIMS!!

    Further, you made the fictitious claim that Muslims are willing to die for their faith.  Wait…..  That’s “easy” to  do.  It’s a one-time deal.  You kill yourself one time and it’s over.  Try LIVING for your faith.  That’s MORE DIFFICULT!!  You have to wake up (if Allah grants you such a blessing) and LIVE for your faith yet another day!

    Wisdom tells me that you don’t know much about Islam or another other faith, for that matter.

  • Garym

    You should be trying to convince other muslims then. A few, and in this case 100′s of 1000′s of muslim bad apples are ruining the religion of Islam for the rest.

    That reminds me…

    Hmm….does this mean us non-Muslims are winning?
