Can’t wait for Obama to denounce one of his buddies. But we’ll probably just be lectured how we’re taking this lunacy out of context.
A Democratic Party caucus chairman who has speculated about Jewish involvement in the 9/11 terrorist attacks has launched a new political action committee dedicated to supporting “anti-Zionist” Muslim candidates who believe “the ‘war on terror’ is a hoax and that the official story of 9/11 is not true,” according to the group’s website.
MD Rabbi Alam is an Obama campaign ally and Missouri-based Democratic activist who came under fire in July after he told the Free Beacon that “not a single Jew” was killed during the 9/11 attacks. (Alam is not a rabbi.)
A veteran Democrat, Alam lost a bid last week to become his party’s nominee for Missouri’s next secretary of state. However, his conspiratorial views about 9/11 and the Jewish people continue to garner the most attention.
Though Alam apologized for his provocative comments, the mission statement of his newly created political action committee suggests the Democratic candidate has not fully renounced his most inflammatory opinions—even as Alam argues that he has done so.
Called the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC), the group aims to get “Muslims elected to office” and become more active in the American political system. Alam is listed at the website’s owner.
The ideal AMPAC candidate would be “pro-peace, anti-Zionist, and opposed to usury,” the website explains in a question-and-answer section that Alam also blasted to his supporters via email.
An FAQ posted on the organization’s website asserts AMPAC will champion “the views and values of Muslims.”
These values include: The “widespread agreement in the community … that the ‘war on terror’ is a hoax and that the official story of 9/11 is not true.”
Today’s Democratic Party: Say anything, do anything and get away with it.
