You Did It! Thank you to all of the grassroots activists across America who called the FBI and voiced your concerns about this troubling event. Thanks to your swift action, this event was “postponed”. As expected, HAMAS-linked CAIR is now attacking concerned Americans who have valid questions. America, do not let them intimidate you! Concerned citizens in Minnesota deserve an explanation as to why the FBI would be host an event with HAMAS-linked CAIR in their community. – Editor’s note
Evidently, the organizers of a panel discussion that was scheduled to be held at a library in St. Cloud, Minnesota addressing “hate crimes” determined that they would postpone the entire event rather then be forced to face engaged citizens with legitimate questions.
The local news reports cited “safey reasons” for “postponing” the event, but any astute observer could see that it is a laughable excuse. The initial call to action was put out by grassroots activist Marni Hockenberg, the MN State Director for Freedom Speaks Coalition.
Hockenberg and her fellow activists are not in the least bit threatening.
It is far more likely that the panelists were actually worried about tough questions.
From the local Fox affiliate:
Commissioner Lucero said the decision [to postpone the event] was “related to a bunch of safety concerns that were raised by the police,” but didn’t go into further detail.
As part of an official statement, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights Commissioner Rebecca Lucero said she was “heartbroken” over “attempts to silence discussion on hate crimes.” Her statement misrepresents the motives of Hockenberg and her fellow activists.
As reported at RAIR Foundation USA, CAIR is linked to HAMAS, a federally-designated terrorist organization that seeks the destruction of America’s ally, Israel. The CAIR Representative who would have been speaking alongside a representative of the FBI at this event, Executive Director Jaylani Hussein refused to condemn Hamas. Hockenberg put out a call to action to put pressure on the FBI for partnering with HAMAS-linked CAIR.
The FBI has previously cut ties with CAIR.
Today, Marni praised the grassroots activists who made their voices heard.
It should be noted and as previously reported at RAIR Foundation USA, there is no evidence that hate crimes exist to the extent reported. There is additionally zero evidence that hate crimes are on the rise, a common assertion from CAIR and similar groups to be used as a battering ram against President Trump.
While the local news did not bother to interview the grassroots activists, they did interview the Executive Director of CAIR, Jaylani Hussein, who said.
“All of their claims are baseless but they believe in this idea that they can brainwash or mislead the public who really sometimes doesn’t have a lot of information,”
One would think that Hussein would simply condemn Hamas and their terrorist tactics.
