The far-left Democrat organization, MoveOn, sent out an email written by Robert Reich, Bill Clinton’s former Secretary of Labor, in which Reich condemns Republicans for “keeping Sharia law out of a city near you.” The email then goes on to complain of Republicans’ “extreme, racist, right-wing positions”.
This is the email in part.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,
Donald Trump could really win this election.
And, even if he doesn’t, the whole Republican field just keeps getting crazier.
Threatening to commit war crimes by intentionally bombing women and children.1 [sic] “Closing” sections of the Internet.2 [sic] Keeping Sharia law out of a city near you.3 [sic]
These are the policies Republicans support. And in poll after poll, the candidates who take the most extreme, racist, right-wing positions go up.
If any of these candidates end up in the White House in 2016, America is in deep, deep trouble. Just by commanding the national stage, Republicans are already pushing dangerous ideas into public discourse and fueling a climate of violence and vitriol.
That’s why I’m asking you to make a year-end gift to one of the most powerful—and effective—progressive groups in the nation: MoveOn.
Your gift won’t just help defeat Republicans in 2016—you’ll also help fight against the pernicious ideas that their campaigns are propagating and help elect progressives who will stand up for our values.[…]
Thanks for all you do.
What Reich probably means is Sharia law isn’t a threat and if there is a law passed to prevent Sharia, then it’s because of racism, not because its a threat.
In fact, it is a threat. What are the “pernicious ideas” Reich seeks to erase?
The principal institutions of Islam in this country, the Muslim American Society, the Muslim Students Association, the Islamic Society of North America, CAIR are all tied to the terror-group The Muslim Brotherhood and all have tremendous power in our government and into the White House. They dominate all dialogue about Muslims in America.
This is despite the fact that the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia have declared the Brotherhood a terrorist organization.
The UK is currently looking at the dangers to national security presented by the organizations tied to the Brotherhood.
The UK allowed a report to be submitted to parliament which was prepared under the direction of Sir John Jenkins and which demonstrates that the “moderate” Brotherhood is not a solution to the problem but the problem itself.
It outlines “aspects of Muslim Brotherhood ideology and tactics” as “contrary to our national interests and our national security.” The organization, the report, concludes is not peaceful and is committed to terror.
According to FrontPage Magazine: The Jenkins report rejects the “moderate” label so often slapped on the hate group by lazy media hacks. Instead it describes the Brotherhood as a clandestine group organized into a “secretive ‘cell’ structure” seeking to create a “Caliphate under sharia law” using a doctrine that allows “the use of extreme violence in the pursuit of the perfect Islamic society”. That ideology is inspired “Al Qaida and its offshoots”. The most obvious offshoot to employ this Takfiri approach is ISIS.
Sir John concluded on this complex subject that, for the most part, the Muslim Brotherhood prefers non violent incremental change for the sake of expediency but will resort to terrorism “where gradualism is ineffective.”
Our government is pandering to a terrorist organization that hopes to install a worldwide caliphate under Sharia law, the very law Reich wants us to stop discussing.
The White House policy of backing the Muslim Brotherhood is outlined in a secret directive called Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11. The directive was produced in 2011 and outlines administration support for political reform in the Middle East and North Africa, according to officials familiar with the classified study.
Frank Gaffney, head of the Center for Security Policy, extensively documented Muslim Brotherhood subversion efforts, both in the United States and abroad.
Mr. Gaffney has said the Muslim Brotherhood is the most dangerous group promoting the totalitarian and Islamist supremacist doctrine of Sharia. Several Muslim Brotherhood supporters have been identified as key advisers to Mr. Obama, according to Mr. Gaffney.
Egyptian press reports after the ouster of Mr. Morsi have revealed extensive cooperation between the CIA and the Muslim Brotherhood during Mr. Morsi’s presidency. We didn’t need Egypt to tell us, it was obvious.
Despite the fact that the Muslim world recognizes the danger of these organizations, Mr. Obama has allowed these radical groups to hijack our foreign policy.
In July 2007, seven key leaders of an Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) went on trial for charges that they engaged in money laundering to finance the terror organization Hamas which falls under the umbrella organization, the Muslim Brotherhood.
One of the most significant documents presented into evidence during the trial was a document compiled by a Muslim Brotherhood operative named Mohamed Akram.
Titled, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America”, the 18-page document listed the Brotherhood’s 29 like-minded “organizations of our friends” that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”
The 29 groups being mobilized to destroy America from within can be found on this link.
Conquering the US by jihad was seen as too difficult and instead it was recommended that a stealth (or “soft”) jihad be implemented to impose Islamic law (Sharia) over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means, such as working to “expand the observant Muslim base”; to “unif[y] and direc[t] Muslims’ efforts”; and to “present Islam as a civilization alternative.”
We must not let anyone shut these discussions down. It’s not about bigotry, it’s about our national security. The “pernicious ideas” are those promulgated by Robert Reich and this administration.
