Video: U.S. Congressman Joe Walsh refuses to apologize to CAIR
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.”
Tea Party freshman, Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) is also a Tea Party favorite because of his visible disdain for political correctness. Unfortunately for Walsh, when congressional districts were re-drawn last year, his battle for reelection became almost instantly more difficult. Despite this, Walsh is refusing to mince his words.
In this latest example, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an alleged Muslim Brotherhood front in America, wants Walsh to apologize for making comments about the threat of radical Islamists in this country. In the video below, Walsh calls out CAIR and points out that his Democratic opponent – Tammy Duckworth – is siding with CAIR on this issue.
Duckworth, a wounded Iraq war veteran, has the backing of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, who recently named CAIR Chicago’s Executive Director – Ahmed Rehab – to an advisory committee.
Incidentally, Duckworth served in the Rod Blagojevich administration and was considered by then Governor Blago as a possible candidate to fill Barack Obama’s Senate seat after the 2008 election.
Here is Walsh’s response to CAIR’s demand for an apology:
