Extremism has two sides. One of it might be the radical Islam that is approached and approved by extremists who do their best to manipulate religion according to their own agendas, like Al-Qaeda and its members. And then there is another side that you will see in the video below, the side that is championed by Rep. Gary Miller and Rep. Ed Royce with Deborah Pauly as its head cheerleader.
What you see below can show you how evil and maligned radicals can be and how they exist in all factions of life – in all countries, be it United States or Afghanistan. While most Americans won’t find fault with a fundraiser that raises money for women’s’ shelters and the homeless in Southern California – these Orange County far-right protestors took their ‘protest’ a little further.
ICNA, Islamic Circle of North America, last month arranged one such fundraises which was aimed at helping women’s’ shelters and for services for the homeless. The attendees of the fund raiser (mostly families with children) were not just jeered and harassed by the demonstrators; they were verbally subjected to hate-speech.
Clearly, ignoring the Freedom of Speech, the basis of America, Representatives Gary Miller (R-CA), Ed Royce (R-CA) spoke to the hateful crowd and cheered their efforts. Their exact words you ask?
“I’m proud of you, I’m proud of what you’re doing”
But it was really Republican Councilwoman Deborah Pauly who took the cake in the ratings of evil. Deborah, who has children, with one of them a US marine called the fundraiser “pure, unadulterated evil”.
“Let me tell you, what’s going on over there right now? Make no bones about it. That is pure, unadulterated evil. I don’t even care; I don’t even care if you think I’m crazy anymore. “
She further added referring to the attendees of the fundraiser:
“I don’t even care if you think I’m crazy anymore. I have a beautiful daughter, I have a beautiful 19 year old son who is a United States marines. As a matter of fact, I know quite a few marines who will be willing to help these terrorists to an early meeting in paradise”
This video raises serious concerns about elected officials in the United States Congress. If Republican Reps Royce and Miller and Councilwoman Pauly approve of such vile hatred shown against American Muslims like the ones in Orange County California – the question about the future of almost 3 million (and some estimate 8-10 Million) Muslims that call America their home come under serious threat.
