What is going on in the Democratic Party? Have they abandoned all logic? It appears they will not deal with the issues that are facing this country at all costs. Any topic that clouds the issue is being explored as a topic at the Democratic Convention. The state of North Carolina defeated the “Same Sex Marriage” proposal, but the Democratic Party is including it in their agenda and is giving a lot of time to “free thinking” women. Obama has done such a miserable job with the economy that they have to stay away from anything economic.
The administration has preempted Congress on the issue of illegals, so the party now has to include that in their platform. Now they are going to couple that with the plight of women who cannot get birth control through healthcare. The Democratic Party is beginning to look more and more like the hippie movement in the 1960’s, with Free Love and Abortion on Demand coupled with displays of homosexual affection taking the place of proposing a balanced budget and a strong military as well as a definite plan to create more jobs for the average American worker.
Why are the Democrats featuring several Muslim factions at the event? I believe there are factions in the Democratic Party hierarchy who if left unchallenged want to convert the Democratic Party into the Party of Malcontents. Democrats are intent on focusing on Islam as part of their party’s upcoming national convention with an event called “Jumah at the 2012 DNC.” Even though there is no rhyme or reason to it, the Democratic National Convention will open with a focus on Islam. 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend in various capacities, according to the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA). The national Muslim-American non-profit organization is coordinating the two days of events they claim are non-political. Whether they are political or not, the homosexual lobby should be aware of their beliefs. Then the Democrats went so far as to snub the offer of Cardinal Dolan, who volunteered to say a prayer at the opening. I am sure that Cardinal Dolan felt that regardless of the party’s platform, God would want to forgive them for what they propose to do.

As noted by M. Zuhdi Jasser, a proponent of non political Islam, the leaders of Jumah at the 2012 DNC are Jibril Hough and Siraj Wahhaj. “They are radicals,” writes Jasser. “These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.” The first Muslim to deliver the daily prayer to the U.S. House of Representatives was black convert Siraj Wahaj in 1991. It was an artful prayer, though he would deliver a very different message elsewhere just one year later. “If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir [leader] and give allegiance to him. . . . Take my word, if 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.” Sounds a little like Louis Farrakhan, doesn’t it? Later, in 1995, he was a character witness for Omar Abdel Rahman, or the blind sheikh, who was found guilty of conspiracy to overthrow the American government in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The U.S. attorney for New York even listed Wahaj as an “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in that case. His words, not mine.
As for Jibril Hough, when not putting on events for the Democratic Party, he’s busy trying to undermine America’s war on terror. According to Mr. Hough, a spokesman for the Islamic Center of Charlotte, “(North Carolina Congresswoman Sue) Myrick’s latest attempt at fighting terrorism is nothing more than a fear campaign…It is nothing more than a new McCarthyism, or Myrickism. As Muslims, we have become expendable, as politicians like Myrick seek political gain.” Based upon the evidence, I would say that it is fair to say Democrats are embracing radicals at their upcoming national convention. So what is the Democratic Party expecting to get out of featuring them and their cohorts? One simple answer is votes, especially in the battleground states. The Democratic party is prepared to do anything to get as many votes as they can. They know that Obama has made such a mess of the US economy that this is the only way they can get any votes from these groups.
