The Collusion No One is Talking About

In Culture, Front Page, National Security by Allen West

If you want a real example of collusion in the United States, look no further than that between the progressive socialist left and Islamo-fascists. There is a clear and evident alliance between the radicalism of the left and the Islamic jihadists. If you want to debate this with me, I will just give you two names: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

As well, the left’s full embrace of the BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) movement against Israel further gives credence to my assertion. But, we have an even more recent display of the unholy alliance between the left and the advocates of “civilizational jihad” in America . . . and this is personal for me.

As reported by the Palm Beach Post:

“The Trump Organization on Sunday canceled an upcoming fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago hosted by ACT for America, an anti-Muslim extremist group with over 1 million members. 

“This group absolutely will not be hosting their event at Mar-a-Lago,” Amanda Miller, a spokeswoman for the Trump Organization, wrote in an email to The Post Sunday afternoon.

No additional details were provided, including who at Mar-a-Lago initially approved the Nov. 7 event or why it was canceled. By Sunday afternoon, a web page to purchase tickets – which started at $1,500 – had been taken down from the ACT for America website.

News broke Saturday that the group would host its annual fundraiser at the president’s private club. Michelle Malkin — a conservative blogger, political commentator and author — is scheduled to be the gala’s keynote speaker.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, quickly responded, issuing a statement Saturday denouncing the event.

“It is totally inappropriate that an Islamophobic hate group would be in effect funneling money to the president of the United States by holding an event in one of his properties,” Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR’s national communications director, wrote in an email to The Palm Beach Post

Based in Washington, D.C., the ACT for America has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. According to the ADL, the group is the largest anti-Muslim group that “propagates the hateful conspiracy theory that Muslims are infiltrating U.S. institutions in order to impose Sharia law.”

First of all, I have spoken at ACT for America events. I have even received a recognition from them. I am a personal friend of Ms. Brigitte Gabriel, head of ACT for America. This organization is not “anti-Muslim” and she is not anti-Muslim. ACT for America is the nation’s largest grassroots conservative national security organization and works to inform its members of critical foreign and national security policy issues, namely the threats from Islamic jihadism and the organizations within the United States advancing a seditious ideological agenda.

We have often shared with y’all the document written in 1991 by Muslim Brotherhood member Mohammed Akhram, the Strategic and Explanatory Memorandum. If someone is serious and addressing the issues surrounding the purported “civilizational jihad” objective, that is not “anti-Muslim,” it is just sharing the truth.

Let’s be honest, there are progressive socialist leftist groups — like the Southern Policy Law Center — which classifies any and all conservative groups as being “hate groups.” We must never forget it was because of the insidious attacks by the SPLC against the Family Research Center (FRC) demonizing it as a hate group that a leftist was inspired to attempt a mass killing at its headquarters in Washington, DC. Thanks to a brave unarmed security guard, that attack was thwarted.

As for the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), it is hardly a Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization. It is nothing more than a gathering of slick suited Islamic jihadists with ties to Hamas, a group linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR is linked to the largest islamic terrorist group funding case in America, the Holy Land Foundation trial.

CAIR is just one of those organizations listed in the Explanatory Memorandum with the mission of advancing the stated “civilizational jihad” in America. Just a quick search of statements made by Nihad Awad, Omar Ahmad, and Ibrahim Cooper will let you know all you need to know about CAIR. Please also note that CAIR features Ilhan Omar at speaking events. Oh, and do not forget Linda Sarsour, the once acclaimed leader of the leftist Women’s March.

Leftists and Islamo-fascists are colluding and bullying grassroots Americans. Click To Tweet

The Trump Organization should be ashamed of itself, they just surrendered and cowered to radical leftists and Islamo-fascists. ACT for America is yet another conservative grassroots movement that is under assault by the progressive socialist left.

“In September 2017, Muslim Advocates, a legal advocacy and education organization, sent a letter to Marriott International, asking CEO Arne Sorenson to cancel ACT for America’s annual conference at the Marriott Crystal Gateway in Arlington, Virginia. Marriott did not cancel the conference.”

I was an invited speaker for the ACT for America Fall 2017 conference. Yes, the Marriott allowed them to have the conference, but they were not allowed to put up any signs. They had to have massive law enforcement protections. And, they were forced down into the lowest level bowels of the hotel.

I just have to ask a simple question: is this still America? China is bullying our National Basketball Association. Leftists and Islamo-fascists are bullying grassroots Americans. And, sadly, the Trump Organization gave ear to these radicals and punished law-abiding, good Americans. This is so very disconcerting and utterly disturbing. What the Trump Organization just did was reinforce and reward aberrant behavior, leftist and Islamic fascism.

I stand with Brigitte Gabriel and the patriotic Americans of ACT for America. The Trump Organization came down on the wrong side.
