Christmas may have passed a month ago, but as far as we’re concerned, the Council on American-Islamic Relations is the gift that keeps on giving.
The Hamas-linked “civil rights” group is always doing something ridiculous we can pull our hair out over, and this week is no exception. They’re now taking offense at what one Texas state legislator did on Texas Muslim Capitol Day.
I really have no idea what Texas Muslim Capitol Day is, although it sounds ridiculous enough to be up there with Grandparents Day, National Talk Like a Pirate Day, and Rex Manning Day.
However, it’s apparently an occasion organized by CAIR when representatives from the organization and from the Muslim community meet and greet state lawmakers.
On the date of the event, Rep. Molly White, R-Belton, knew she would be out of the capital. However, she left behind instructions for what CAIR lobbyists were to do upon visiting her office.
White posted to Facebook, “I did leave an Israeli flag on the reception desk in my office with instructions to staff to ask representatives from the Muslim community to renounce Islamic terrorist groups and publicly announce allegiance to America and our laws.
“We will see how long they stay in my office.”
For whatever reason, this rankled CAIR. They wrote a letter on the matter to the Texas House speaker and the ethics adviser that they posted on their website.
“Our ethics question is: Has Rep. White violated any House rules in creating such an internal office policy that is selectively being enforced to discriminate against certain religious minorities trying to meet with her or her staff?” the statement read.
“Are House members prohibited from making constituents take oaths before meeting with their elected representatives or house staff?,” it continued. “Or, are you aware of any other ethical breaches that may have occurred because of these statements?”
It’s somewhat funny to hear an organization that has links to the “big three” of Islamic terrorism — Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda — and was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror funding trial in American history talk about “ethical breaches.”
Given CAIR’s history, I would think that a swearing in of its members and affiliates might not be uncalled for, especially when you consider that the organization does have links to the terrorist organizations Rep. White demands they renounce.
After all, if they are the upstanding citizens they claim to be, surely they wouldn’t have any problem with the oath.
